In today’s world the most important task for any human being is to manage time. If you face troubles meeting deadlines, if you keep running haywire for completion of tasks or even if you really find it difficult to take out time for your family then probably you are one of the candidates who seriously need to work out on your time management skills.

Beware of Energy Monster !!!

“EXAMINATION”, the word itself insulates a feeling of panic and stress not only in children but also parents. For most of us exams means lots of revision, mugging up, four walls of the room, our table and chair and many sleepless nights. While preparing for it we meet with loads of stress. And as parents and teachers it is our job to see that the child is comfortable with the whole scenario.
Few of the possible signs of stress which one can look out for are eating disorders, irritated nature, tiredness or sleeping disorders. If the child has suddenly started eating too much or has reduced on diet or if you are noticing some changes in nature of your child that he/she has become aggressive or too quiet. If you find your child tired or is always looking worried, take these as warning signals. A little bit of stress is good for the child to remain focused and motivated however the former signs are of excessive stress taken and the child really needs HELP.
The best ways to distress your child is by maintaining a good repo with him/her. Understand their needs and wants. Secondly allow lots of fluid intake which will help your child remain concentrated. Thirdly fix a leisure time for them, even during examinations like a walk in the park or talking to friends or even some exercising. Remember they can even watch a movie just to rejuvenate themselves. During exams we tend to sleep less, however it is recommended that a person should sleep for atleast 6-8 hours daily else it reduces concentration leading to tiredness and change in attitude.
As their parents and mentors it is our duty to see that a child is free from all anxieties no matter its related to examination. We should explain to them that this is just a part of life and not an end of it. They should work hard and streamline their study material in such a manner that it does not put pressure on them in the end. After all time management is important.

How often do we go shopping with our kids? I guess, most of us like to leave them home when we are planning to shop for ourselves. We won’t disagree with the fact that when we are shopping for ourselves, the kids push us over to their stuff. And then, we end up purchasing their stuff and sometimes even forget to buy for ourselves something which was necessary.
So instead of shouting at them or standing helplessly in front of everyone while they are busy showing their tantrums, one should try and involve them with your own work.
Firstly, try and go for shopping less number of times.
Secondly, when you prepare a list for yourself, ask your child to do the same. (Remember only things of necessity).
Thirdly, Put some amount (small) in your child’s hand, pocket, purse etc. and ask him/her to shop from that particular amount. And also fix some gift, if they save the money from that amount.
Then, if your child is creating a fuss over a toy which you think is pretty expensive or not necessary for the moment, don’t deny your child straight forward, instead ask him/her to collect the money for the same. In this manner they’ll come to know that how much time it takes to collect that particular sum of money and in the process, somewhere they’ll realize its value.
Try and pay your bills in front of your child. So that they know, nothing comes for free. If they are using telephone, watching television or even opening and closing the refrigerator every time they’re passing by the kitchen, they have a price to pay.
One can opt for reasonable stores while shopping for the kids. Because your kids are in a growing stage and secondly they judge the quantity of products purchased for them.
Try and involve your child with your own shopping. Tell them what you are interested in buying and then see the excitement on their faces when they select the things for you. This activity makes them feel important and that their choices do matter to you.
So Happy Shopping!!
