It is summer vacation now and parents are busy finding the best way to engage kids in a constructive manner. It is the time when summer camps and many vacation based programs gain prominence. But then, they are just few days’ programs and not all kids feel comfortable to be a part of this new exclusive gang. In a normal scenario, the kids will be out on the roads playing cricket and cycling with neighborhood children but with scorching sun and summer taking on vehemently with sharper rise in day temperatures, it pays to keep the children indoors. Think of indoors and any parent can have nightmare thinking of the damages and also the constant complaint and nagging of boredom and worse still their addiction to mobiles, computer games and Xbox / PlayStation. So how about getting them hooked onto ‘Kiddies Express’ with &Pictures.
Children these days have lot of options to spend their time but the onus to make the time worthwhile and also educative lies in the hands of the parents and teachers. We can see preschoolers watching television serials with their parents and playing mobile games not suitable for their age. Precious time of their life is spent in unwanted knowledge capable of spoiling children’s character building. We grew up with toys, simple ones which allowed us to create our own world and dream our fantasy without any negative influence. Those were the initial seeds of creativity. Learning was limited to action oriented rhymes focusing on improving our memory, rhythm and physical activity. It was fun way of learning and had an impact on our minds which we fondly recall even today. Focus was on physical exercises and emotional growth was the aim and we never grew tired doing any of these unlike the kids today who complain of boredom, strain and tiredness even in preschool. To drive home the point, let us do a small exercise, can you recollect Jack and Jill, Ding Dong Bell and Twinkle twinkle little star? It will be surprising to know that despite the age we are in, each one of us can recite it without any difficulties. So the solution lies in hitting back those days albeit a minor difference due to the way we grew up and the lifestyle of kids today.
