My literary journey began when I started teaching rather learning with pre-schoolers. I felt the urgent requirement to adequately understand each child at his or her level of understanding.
Concurrently, the academic curricula needed to be re-focused to be ‘child-led’ rather than ‘teacher-led’ to carefully nurture their unconditional love for learning. This required parents and teachers to be ‘sensitized’ with deeper knowledge and profound understanding about the child. To bridge the increasing gap between the key facilitator and the active learners; required thoughtful attention to raise children in a nurturing and secure environment to promote an atmosphere rich in love, respect, gratitude, self-discipline, self-reliance, responsibility and leadership.
This insight marked the turning point which made me resign as a Dean and put pen to paper. I experienced the urgent need to present this insight to the world so that we de-emphasize the focus from score-based results and shift the primary focus to a deeper and more profound understanding of learning.
Excerpt (Chapter # 9 – Expectations):
Begin by equating your ‘expectations’ with the facts of your child’s development (Chapter-2, Child’s Development Milestones). Check the current stage of your child’s development and the learning styles of your child (Chapter-3, Learning Preferences-Know ‘Yourself’ and ‘Your Child’). Now, compare your expectations with the facts about your child and question yourself if your expectations are well within the parameters of reason. Weed out the expectations that hold no meaning for your child at his or her stage of development.
Learning is innate for the child, and the child continues building on experiences over his or her lifetime. If the child’s learning experiences are good, it adds to his or her life; but think about the reverse situation!
Will the ‘unrealistic’ expectations help the child become a better person?
Or, is there a ‘miss?’
Think and think again, if your expectations are ‘that’ important; that you are prepared to risk the lifetime-relationship that exists between you and your child.
