Mum, The Best School For Your Child Is A decent Home
“There is no school equal to a decent home and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.”…….Mahatma Gandhi
You will agree with me that we daily learn great life’s lessons from the people around us the experiences we go through and our attitude to these experiences
The home therefore is the child’s first school,Children learn more from the environment and people they come in contact with in early years, parents therefore have the ultimate task to make it a conducive one. One that is not judgmental,One in which there is freedom of choice, speech and lots of dialogue, for education of any kind to be effective, communication is key
What are you doing or how can you say that you are ensuring that your children are properly “home schooled” before they leave your nest and its not so much of what we do but more about what we do, how we live our lives, how we relate with and treat other people, our core values, how we react to pain, disappointment, joy. How we manage crisis, it is in studying us parents that our children get the greatest education
So then, since we are the first teachers they know,let us take time to prepare our lesson notes with practical examples that will enhance their learning positively, let us be careful to nurture, to groom and not bruise their little egos, such that they are so broken they do not want to try it again.
Take good care of your classroom (Home) and teach the children right, as it is written in the holy book, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it”
A teacher’s work is never done…..goodluck
