A quick offering in all newspapers these days!!! Spoken English, personality development, art, and craft, etc. Summer holidays in today's time has become a money minting business. Can you recall and imagine and miss the days of how we spent the vacations with our maternal grandparents, playing outdoor games, the simpler version of movies was to go to a friend's place and watch TV together? Do we really need to push our children to get up early in the mornings, get ready for so called summer camps, be out of the house for few hours and when back home, parents are again hunting out for some other classes to keep the child occupied.
Wouldn't it be great if we gave them a true meaning of vacations?
Sitting at home and spending time with kids is a very natural process. But being in nuclear families, it has really become a task to manage, handle and spend time with kids. Why is it so difficult? Why is it so challenging for parents to spend time with their very own children and the need to send them to various places to keep them occupied. Believe me, it's not that time consuming too.
Let's say why not take your child out to buy vegetables, move out with them to a nursery,garden area,or a botanical visit, Maintaining an aquarium at home could be a task, so why not involve your child in cleaning and feeding process? Both my boys are of great help when my maid doesn't turn up. Let us teach them the value of cleanliness, the feeling of belonging,ask them to get you some water and medicines too,if you are on some. Put them in a routine to understand, that you can't miss the medicine. Give them a sense of responsibility.
All these activities cost nothing. But yes, you get pride possession of your own kids with a sense of responsibility, awareness, alert mind, and a true meaning of the family. You must be thinking, and wondering, there is no mention of regular studies, activities, as there is no cost involved. Well, anything that involves cost doesn't mean it's worth it.
