Parents think and feel that they are the parents and they know what is right from wrong. However,
children are unlike their parents. Every child is different and he or she has her own way of thinking.
They also have their ideas and expressions. Surprisingly, they can have some great ideas about some
issues that even their parents do not know. In other words, children could be the “inventors”
of some ideas to provide solution to the most difficult problems!
This is the time when parents should think and introspect on their present attitude. Do they need
to forego their pride and superior feeling? Yes, they may need to set aside their feelings and start
listening to their children, at least for sometime in the day. In fact, it is good for both of them.
Allow your children to share and express their ideas. This will help them feel endowed and empowered.
They also feel that someone is actually listening to their ideas. There are several benefits to an
endowed child. Language and vocabulary skills, problem solving, creativity and better communication
are some of the brain boosting advantages that your children will accrue by letting them sharing
their own ideas. Last, who does not need a cordial family, where everyone has the right to express
their minds and opinions? Have a great day.
Thought for today:

Teach child to make good choices before his brain is ready to do so
AZ Star Net Nov 06, 2011
The prefrontal cortex is the boss. It is the part of the brain that takes information from other
parts of the brain so that we can make decisions. The executive function that we need to make
decisions comprises planning, organization, working memory and control over the part of our
brain that would lead us to do stupid or dangerous things if unchecked.
