Teaching interpersonal responsibility means that children should be taught to take up responsibility of their behaviour while dealing with others.

Children should be taught compassion i.e. how other person feels .They should be taught to respect other person’s feelings.

Encourage your children to take cold water shower or cold water bath:

vib20

Taking cold water bath has a lot of benefits for children.

Advantages:

1. Reduces stress Levels:
Studies show that taking cold water bath reduces stress levels .It acts as a stress buster.

2. Improves Immunity:

Cold water bath improves immunity against cold, flu etc.

3. Increases blood circulation:
When cold water falls on the body ,the arteries and veins contract ,resulting in movement of blood with high pressure to various organs.With hot water bath it is just the opposite. On taking cold water bath blood circulation in vital organs increases to keep them warm thus increasing the overall circulation of blood in the body.

4. Increased vitality:
Children who take cold water bath are less lethargic .Improved blood circulation helps them remain active.

5. Increases mental strength:
It is not easy to take cold water bath in the morning. If children are encouraged to take cold water bath in the morning it helps to make them mentally strong as it requires a lot of will power to go through any experience that is not pleasant. Remember early sages, the first thing they used to do in the morning was to take a dip in cold river water. It helped them to elevate spiritually. In tough trainings like military training they don’t allow warm or hot water bath in view of making trainees mentally strong.

As parents, we try to do whatever we can do and provide whatever we can ,so that our children succeed in their respective fields. But, are all these efforts reciprocated in the same manner with the hard work and effort that is required from children’s side ???

In most cases I see that whatever effort is being made and whatever facilities that are being given from parent’s side are taken for granted and there is no or little effort from child’s and student’s side. That sincerity of effort is lacking.

Now a days we see that children from less privileged families are coming up and shining. So, what is it that is required for succeeding?

imagesCAE20GD2imagesCAE20GD2imagesCAE20GD2

Logical thinking is a learned process in which one uses reasoning.It is a bent of mind that needs to be nurtured in children. It is less concerned with accumulating undigested facts. It is the kind of thinking process that will be required by children not only in taking competitive exams but also throughout their life and in every field of their life. Logical thinking means not to take things at their face value but to research and analyse available facts. Logical thinking can be improved through constant observation and experimentation. A logical thinker is a person who not only reacts to the stimuli, but he also creates new things and ideas. ”Trial and error“ method is very important for developing logical thinking.Trial and error method allows room for making mistakes and learning from them rather than leading an inert existence like a Wall. With trial and error method children, come to know about new relationships in old thinking. A superior logical thinker is a person who is able to find out new relationships in old things.
