A prelude to Week-2

We are gearing up with Week-2 Day-1 tomorrow. Here is a little prelude before we get into some mindful action!

Where Does a Child’s Education Begin?

In School or at Home?

Daily Schedule:

6:00 am: The alarm rings, time to wake up!

6:30 am: Take a shower, get dressed, perform puja, prostrate in front of god 

7:00 am: Breakfast time and final morning preparations

8:00 am: Children head to school and parents are off to work

4:30 pm: Children return home from school

5:00 pm: Dinner preparations and children go outside to play

6:00 pm: Children work on their homework and computer time

7:00 pm: Do evening aarti; sit down for dinner and watch TV

9:00 pm: Children get ready for bed

The schedule might slightly change based on each other’s time zone and way of life. 

When looking at the schedule above, what do you notice? Have you ever asked yourself any of the questions below?

  • How much time was spent on homework?
  • Are the children having any difficulties in any subjects?
  • Who are my children playing with? And what are they playing?
  • What internet sites are they visiting?
  • Who are they communicating with online?
  • What television programmes are the children watching?

Just as young plants require nurture to grow, so do children. Parents need to spare time to provide educational and emotional support for their children. A child’s education begins at home, not at school, and therefore, parents should play an active role in their children’s education. A preschooler will need parents to support his/her freedom to play, explore and be creative while a teenager will require more support on understanding key concepts.

This week we explore what steps we can take to be more engaged in our child’s overall development and education!

A passionate young woman who has just realized her Iconic Independence, truly by leading a life, on her own – which she has only fantasized in her dreams all through these years, before stepping into a challenging role of this kind (you will get to know what this journey has been!). I have wanted to prove myself, not just in the cyber space, but the treasure-filled stage of life as well. Ask me to whom I wanted to prove? It was just to myself and not to anyone else. I for one slide into the shoes offered to me on a daily basis by the All-Pervasive! Whatever that might be! I also want to be an active player all through the blissful years that is showered and the ones that I am yet to be presented with! I am full of life and values and wish to re-create the meaning of this ‘journey undertaken’ – not just through the mere survival and existence, but by the richness of resilient thoughts to LIVE and THRIVE every moment that flashes by!
