Top Four Life Lessons For Children to learn
– by Khayalvizhi Vaithianathan
Are we ever ensuring that our children are taught the exact dimensions of life? Have we ever spent a minute to think about their life beyond books?
Yes, it’s very important to take a step back and focus on teaching the most important FOUR lessons for their life time.
1. Exchange of thoughts- Conversation :
Today’s generation/ young minds is known as called the quiet generation, as they less communicate to people around, peer, teachers, etc. This poor communication is just because of their extraordinary communication with technology, which is a medium that does not demand speaking to anyone.
Instead of having eye-eye contact & connect, today’s generation prefer certain methods of communication such as texting, social media messages, email, and so on.
So, what happens?
Personal communication skills are being stuck. Emotional and sensible connect is lost. Results in the losing & experiencing the treasure of how to connect with others, being empathetic, when to speak and when to listen, how to do & what & when to do…actually they forget the art of interpersonal & intrapersonal relationships.
2. Proactive Thinking:
The core ability to think through various scenarios and circumstances are most importantin our lives. Students must be taught how best to learn& how proactively they can think. This kind of thinking keeps them to do every task in a well- planned and productive way.
3. Happy Ways of handling Money:
Handling Cash flow/money in a more responsible way is a one of the biggest learning in life. Syllabi on accounting, finance, and business classes explain accounting procedures, financing methods, and commercial structures.
Our existing curriculum does not focus much on personal finances, saving or investing. It helps in preparing students for working environments, and certainly does not help them in learning the managerial skills of their own finances.
And so for any beginner or self-starter, gaining knowledge on ways to set up their company’s structure, managing the finances, reinvesting into the company, etc becomes very fundamental.
This kind of learning makes a great sense & gives a huge difference between failure and success.
4. Loving & Caring Relationships:
It is very significant that this phase of life is very valuable, for this is the first place in falling in love, getting married, and starting a new life with beautiful dreams…totally a new horizon –and the family is the base of the entire life.
Henceforth, it is important to choose the right mate, know what to wish for and what not to wish for in a life partner, and how to be a good one for self.
Communications and interpersonal relationships with mental wellness would certainly help one to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes in personal relationships.
This kind of openness in heart, expansion of mind in perceiving facts will definitely pave the way for harnessing a loving & caring relationship ever.
