In the lives of young Children aged 0-14 Years
Authentic learning for young minds does not lie in brainwashing them to stay outside of themselves. There is a vast resource inside of them waiting to come out at the right time. We must learn to respect the Law of incubation. You will never witness in nature the energy of comparison and hurry. Nature trust each creation to unfold at their right time.We as parents adults must re-learn to hold time and allow the lives of our children to unfold at their individual pace. Allow children young human beings to be authentic, resilientand learn to be interdependent on themselves.
A Little Further Peep Into The Book
Prelude to nurturing young children in the 21st century
Gadget addiction is no more fiction-it’s a stark reality which faces the human race with all its pluses and minuses. On one hand it’s doing a lot to improve our quality of life but on the other hand it is adversely affecting the concentration and creativity of young minds at an alarming speed!
Being a mother of two lovely children it didn’t take me long to realize the threat these gadgets were posing to my young children. Animated films were replacing the creative and exploratory pursuits of my children. If denied they would act abnormally like an addict. As a mother this was not acceptable to me.
Being an army kid I was used to physical and exploratory activities and here I was a mute witness to the gadget addiction of my elder child. Enough I told myself one day and started finding ways and means to reduce this addiction 5 years back!
I am happy to say that today I have reduced the gadget exposure of my children to the minimum. Having tested and succeeded with my children I encouraged some of my friends to do the same and happily results were same. Seeing our children physically and mentally active brings us joy and satisfaction.
Being a student of psychology I started researching the area of gadget addiction, especially its effect on the human brain during the formative years. The findings were an eye opener and scary. Finally I decided to share my learning outcomes and personal experiences with the parents of children between ages 1 to 14 through a book and hence the book.
I hope it would give some good food for thought to the affected parents. Essence of my book is that parenting is a serious business and needs involvement not participation.
Please pass this book as a gift to your family or any family you know who have young children and are struggling with the gadget clutter!
