Session on 29th Jan – How do we motivate children?

We had a session on Motivation. Understanding our motivation to do things helped us to realise that this must be true for children too. We tried to understand how children are learning different things at the same time and how we can facilitate the learning process instead of making it more cumbersome for them. We asked ourselves questions whether we could be open enough to accept our children with their dreams instead of making them work towards the Goals we set for them. Is it possible that children are capable of having their own goals and working towards it? Lots of thoughts and lots to ponder on.

Neuerth Kids, Benson town, Bangalore – 28th Jan – Interaction with parents

We had a lively and interesting session with the parents of Neuerth Kids, Benson town today between 10 AM and 12 PM. Parents had queries on “the choice of dress a child wears for a party” / “parental control” / “dealing with children who hit,pinch, bully..” / “shy child who does not talk too much” etc.. We explored many of these queries through activities / games.
