Solution for Children's School Going Problem

Here are a few things parents need to know about school going children.

"He can't keep up with the rest," is a common complaint. Although it needn't be taken too seriously, it must be investigated into. On the physical side, it may be due to poor eyesight, illness or fatigue. Otherwise it may mean fears, relationship problems, parental stress on studies, 'tough' teachers or any trouble en route to school.

The physical aspects Chronic illness in some children leaves them tired with little concentration on what's being taught, sometimes poor eyesight causes a child to lag behind in taking down notes from the board. Loss of hearing or lack of concentration are also common problems with school-going children.

Slow Memory Development
Surprisingly some children write 'p' for 'q' even at later stages of schooling. Words that are reversed also create problems. Ten for net. This isn't a major problem and should be handled with care by teachers and parents. Do not make the child feel inadequate because of this. Train him better. It's not that he is dull or unintelligent. You need to speak to the language teacher and get your child special attention. At home spend time with him teaching him better spelling. Unattended, these children may turn out be poor sellers, often misspelling even five letter words.

Fear of Going to School
One the gravest errors parents make is to threaten erring children. "I'll inform your teacher. She'll give you nicely." This creates hatred for the teacher and ensures just the opposite of what you're trying to accomplish. 'Strict' teachers too add to this. Sometimes an accident or illness that originated at school creates fear , and the child will refuse to go to school. At other times a 'bully' at school may be eating his lunch every day and threatening to box him if the teacher is informed. Kids who hate physical training periods may fuss on certain days, even refusing to eat breakfast. Or feigning illness. Take this matter of factly and get him going. Don't give into all these or soon you'll find him testing your nerves.

Points to ponder
1> Children walk to school, but run to home.
2> Nearly all children exhibit starting problem.
3> Its not always something to do with studies.
4> Loss of hearing, poor eyesight and chronic illness could be the cause.
5> Don't guess, talk to the child to identify the root cause.
6> Its painful for children to hold the pencil at first.
7> Make it a point to meet the class teacher regularly.

    First Love Unforgettable

    How on Earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
    Albert Einstein

    Love Poem for Wife


    We are thine, O Love, being in thee and made of thee,
    As thóu, Lóve, were the déep thóught
    And we the speech of the thought; yea, spoken are we,
    Thy fires of thought out-spoken:
    But burn'd not through us thy imagining
    Like fiérce móod in a sóng cáught,
    We were as clamour'd words a fool may fling,
    Loose words, of meaning broken.
    For what more like the brainless speech of a fool,--
    The lives travelling dark fears,
    And as a boy throws pebbles in a pool
    Thrown down abysmal places?
    Hazardous are the stars, yet is our birth
    And our journeying time theirs;
    As words of air, life makes of starry earth
    Sweet soul-delighted faces;
    As voices are we in the worldly wind;
    The great wind of the world's fate
    Is turned, as air to a shapen sound, to mind
    And marvellous desires.
    But not in the world as voices storm-shatter'd,
    Not borne down by the wind's weight;
    The rushing time rings with our splendid word
    Like darkness filled with fires.
    For Love doth use us for a sound of song,
    And Love's meaning our life wields,
    Making our souls like syllables to throng
    His tunes of exultation.
    Down the blind speed of a fatal world we fly,
    As rain blown along earth's fields;
    Yet are we god-desiring liturgy,
    Sung joys of adoration;
    Yea, made of chance and all a labouring strife,
    We go charged with a strong flame;
    For as a language Love hath seized on life
    His burning heart to story.
    Yea, Love, we are thine, the liturgy of thee.
    Thy thought's golden and glad name,
    The mortal conscience of immortal glee,
    Love's zeal in Love's own glory.

    Lascelles Abercrombie

    Love between a couple

    Between husband and wife there should be no secrets from one another. I have a very high opinion of the marriage tie. I hold that husband and wife merge in each other. They are one in two or two in one.

    while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns.

    He who thanks but with the lips
    Thanks but in part;
    The full, the true Thanksgiving
    Comes from the heart.J.A. Shedd

    To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.”
    - Albert Schweitzer

    Henry Jacobsen

    Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.

    Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.
    Jackie Windspear

    Gratitude ... goes beyond the "mine" and "thine" and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.
    Henri J. M. Nouwen

    Thanksgiving is an important ingredient in praying...If all we do is ask, and never thank God for His gifts, we are selfish. Sincere gratitude to God is one of the best ways to put fervor into our praying.

    How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative—or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people.
    Sir John Templeton

    On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence.
    William Jennings Bryan

    The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
    H.U. Westermayer

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
    John Fitzgerald Kennedy

    Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.
    E.P. Powell

    Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.
    Erma Bombeck

    Thank God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues, which the idle will never know.
    Basil Carpenter
