Please do not advice me. I need a practical tips that can be very much applied to my challenge.
@Devishobha True that! The education system at home is much more critical than that which we pay lakhs for. How much money have you spent building the education system at home? My kid is 14 months. By the time he is 5yrs I would have taken him on a road trip from the mouth of a river till it meets the sea. And on this journey I'd like to show him what happens to the river and how that affects those living around it. This is experiential Learning. No textbook can substitute this form of learning. And this is exactly what kids today need. For kids between 13 and 16 who love PC games with guns and tanks, I do a tactical paintball session for them in which they learn team building, leadership, accurate thinking and emotional intelligence. So, there is always a solution to a challenge. And there is always a way to use their gadget addiction constructively.
@Chakradhari On....For kids between 13 and 16 who love PC games with guns and tanks, I do a tactical paintball session for them in which they learn team building, leadership, accurate thinking and emotional intelligence. - Wanted to know more. My nephew is 16 year old and wanted to know how he can be benefited from the session. Where is this workshop?
@Natasha saxena Currently I do these work shops in bangalore. Will be holding one soon in a few weeks. Share your contact email and I'll keep you posted. firstname.lastname@example.org
@Chakradhari This is a great insight. . "In 7 days of a chosen week, display 2 acts each of Care, Dependability, Trust and Integrity towards your kids. Just do it and expect nothing in return. And do this for 4 weeks. Let me know if you didn't find any results...". But it is very difficult to instruct an 13 year old to listen to us.
@Anonymous Well you said it yourself - INSTRUCT a 13 yr old. You never Instruct Kids. Thats what coaches and physical training instructors do. With kids you be a kid. But a matured one. Use logical reasoning to impress an idea on to them.
