Time To Understand The Child!

T

oday’s world is full of stress, challenges and demands and has put parents, teachers, professionals and individuals in a fix. The potential of a child needs to be carved out with methodology rather than stereotype/orthodox methods. Every child should be assessed for his/her ability on four major domains: i) Aptitude: Inherent potential which can become a skill after training. ii) Personality: Consistent ways of thought, emotion and behaviour across time and in different contexts. iii) Interest: Preference for an activity over the other iv) Intelligence: General ability to solve problems in a rational way. Every child aspires to reach his/her potential which be contradictory to the parental demands or demands from the society. This curbs the full growth of the child as he/she lives as per others demands The approach and not according to his dreams and has to be open desires. The following steps can really work wonders minded, flexible in the pursuit of aspirations of children, and full of (especially for teachers): genuine concern Every child needs: i) Unconditional positive regard: Don’t judge for the child. a child. Accept the child for whatever he is without passing a judgement. ii) Empathy: Understand and feel from the perspective of the child. Step into his world and see it from his point of view. iii) Genuine Warmth: The approach has to be open minded, flexible and full of genuine concern for the child. Allow the child to be congruent with his inner self and his aspired self. Be a facilitator and a motivator. Aren’t these points simple to inculcate? THINK!

Practice Humility: Do not try to prove yourself...

H

umility and inner peace go hand in hand. The less compelled you are to try to prove yourself to others, the easier it is to feel peaceful inside. Proving yourself is a dangerous trap. It takes an enormous amount of energy to be continually pointing out your accomplishments, bragging, or trying to convince others of your worth as a human being. Pride and arrogance actually dilutes the positive feelings you receive from an accomplishment or something you are proud of. To make matters worse, the more you try to prove yourself, the more others will avoid you, talk behind your back about your insecure need to Contd. on Page 3

Movie Review

A

Knight and Day

mong the big hits of this summer's 'cinema pack' is 'Knight And Day' which is an adventurous action comedy, with a swift pace and a great star cast. Coming to the story, June Havens (Cameron Diaz) is heading to Boston to attend her sister's wedding when she bumps into Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) at the airport. She thinks he's attractive. He thinks she's cute. Roy slips a super-secret device into her bag to get it past security, and the two end up on the same, nearly empty flight, together. When attacked, Roy kills everyone, including the pilots on board, and the plane crashes on a field, revealing Roy to be a CIA spy gone rogue. The story starts to get really interesting as some people begin using Roy and June as targets. June is in a fix, but Roy tries his best to get her to safety several times, she nevertheless finds herself on the run with him. We're taken on a wild ride as the film plays out like a roller coaster - the international man of mystery, his muse and the top secret device zoom from a shootout in a restaurant to a high security CIA stranglehold to a tropical island hideout in the pacific to a luxury train in Austria to the cobbled streets and a dangerous arms-dealer's villa in Spain...Whoa! As the motives of an FBI agent (Peter Sarsgaard) are revealed, it leaves June with two choices- truth or trust. It's a nice entertainer, which keeps you stuck to your seats. A feast for Tom Cruise fans!

Tree Plantation @ Mayo

boast, and perhaps even dislike you. Ironically, however, the less you care about seeking approval, the more approval you seem to get. People are drawn to those with a quiet, inner confidence, people who don’t need to make themselves look good, be “right” all the time, or steal the glory. Most people love a person who doesn’t need to show-off, a person who shares from his or her heart and not from his or her ego.
