20-Every Child Needs Proper Direction


Dear Students/ Parents,

I delivered the lecture on Mathematical Fun.  It was delivered in Indian Language “Marathi”. If you understand Marathi, Please click here to see my Lecture on YouTube.

Every Day, from morning till night, everyone is doing there work. Like this, a small kid also starts his/her work since morning. Suppose in the evening, all of our family members are gossiping and our kid of age say 1 or 1 & half years old is also playing by his/her own. While running from one place to the another, if the kid falls down and starts crying, then both Parents rush toward the kid & try to divert his/her mind to some other direction. Some of the parents may start Convincing the kid by telling them that it wasn't his/her fault but the ground's flaw that he/she fell down. 

No doubt here we are diverting the mind of the child from crying, but simultaneously, we are directing him/her to rely on blaming others rather than correcting them.

Now we will see some other example. 

So I will change my words, Now I will say, In school, Teacher allots some Happy work to the students. Some Students do this work honestly, with proper study, understanding the concept; then writing the answers. Some student may do this work simply by copying from other students & some of the students may not do their work at all.

While checking this work, if the teacher asks about these cases, then one by one student will say I couldn't do this work because of someone had taken my notebook or simply say I had some work so I couldn't do this work.

Here shifting the reasons from one part to another, the student may make more & more mistakes.

The habit of speaking lie will be a serious problem for the child so right from a small age, the child needs proper directions.
