Kid Management: The Truth

The truth of kid management: 

1. There is no short-cut to teach children. For example, if the child is weak in maths, then we hire a math teacher to teach him. Then, the child can never improve. 100% guarantee. 
I have taught more than 1000 children from 4 years to 18 years throughout my career. 
My parents think that their kids are weak in maths and the parents start to source for math teacher. I tell you, your kids can never be improved. 
2. If you want your kid to improve his / her mathematics, the only way is parents (YOURSELVES). 
For example, every time you go out with your children, you can try to incorporate maths in the real life. 
With the help of teachers, I guarantee, the results improve substantially. 
3. PARENTS, YOU SHOULD NOT GIVE EXCUSES TO YOURSELF. NOT THE CHILD. THE CHILD LEARN FROM YOU ONLY. LIKE FATEHR LIKE SON. 
Example, I have come across that 60% of the top management’s sons have problems. 
Reason: Parents are busy working in the office. When, they reach home, they relax. 
Therefore, their sons only see that their parents are so relax so that they learn from them. 

Kid management: Respect kids’ model of the world

As an adult, we must respect everyone in the world.
I respect my previous boss to guide me to be a better teacher now.
I respect my parents for sending me to Canada when I was 13 years old. (To be honest to you, I blamed them in the beginning.Now, I would have to say thank you to them)
I respect all of the unsung heroes in the world.

After I have two cute baby boys, I realised that we must respect our kids.

Few years back, I enjoy reading newspaper on my Iphone when my kids were with me.
Slowly, my kids grabbed my iphone to play with it.

I scolded them fiercely. But, guess what, nothing had gone better.

I stopped using my iphone when I am with my kids except for answering the phone call.
Then, everything changes overnight. My kids stopped asking for my phone to play.

Last week, when I gathered with my relatives during one open house event. I realised it all of the kids played with ipad, iphone, samsung and other gadgets.

Two of my kids never touched the electronic devices at all.

My sister asked that why I can train my kids for that attraction.
My answer is as simple as ABC.

RESPECT YOUR KIDS AND YOUR KIDS WILL RESPECT YOU AS WELL. 

My personal experience 1:

If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got.

To be a Master Trainer in English throughout Malaysia, I learn that:

Example 1: One child who does not like to read Bahasa Malaysia or English, you keep scolding him.

To be a teacher, what will you get?
Yes, you will be angry and frustrated.

At the end of the day, you don’t get your problems solved.

I think I am borned teacher because when I teach, my frustration disappears in the thin air. If you ask me to entertain friends and customers. I have no interest so that I can never be a salesman. NEVER EVER.

First, I try to understand what children want and why don’t they study?

Second, I start to ask about students’ interest and forget about his studies first.

Third, I will research more about what the children like. I.e. The child said that he likes to play with angry birds game, I will try to study about the game.

Fourth, the everything about the same and convert everything they learn into the game.

Fifth, guess what. I become the student’s best friend.

给父母的一个测验

给父母的一个测验
           
            在现今的社会,考试似乎变成了孩子们的“专利”。这是一个给为人父母者的自我测验。当你静下心来,认真思考每一项问题时,或许你会发觉,随着时代的不同,原来父母所要扮演的角色越来越多样化,也越来越具挑战性。
            其实,这个小测验并没有对或错的答案,也不是为了要评估父母的表现。我只希望可以帮助父母在调教孩子时,多一些思考的方向。(诚心希望每位父母可以认真思考每一项问题。)
1)我经常和孩子谈天及讨论孩子感兴趣的话题吗?
2)我有常常拥抱孩子或亲抚孩子以表达我对他们的爱意吗?
3)我会经常放下手上的一切工作,坐下来认真耐心聆听孩子说话吗?
4)每次我回到家看到孩子,是否一定会问以下的这几个问题?
       一、你吃饱了吗?二、冲了凉吗?三、功课做完了吗?四、要考试了……有读书吗?
5)我会经常批评孩子,对孩子发脾气吗?
6)我会常常急着教训孩子而忽略了应该先了解问题吗?
7)我会认为赞美将宠坏孩子吗?
8)当有人称赞我的孩子时,我会在孩子面前否定对方的称赞吗?
9)我会否在孩子有好的表现时,不但视而不见,反而还批评他呢?
10)我是不是常将孩子与其他的孩子比较,或常与他的兄弟姐妹作比较呢?
11)孩子参加越多的补习,上越多的才艺班,就会变得更优秀吗?
12)我是否会细心、认真、深入地了解孩子的想法与感受呢?
13)我会相信自己的孩子已经没有希望,或认为他已经无法改变吗?
14)对于孩子,我是否会像对待成年人一样,有礼貌又尊重他来和他相处呢?
15)我会常对孩子摆出“高高在上,你必须听我说”的姿态吗?
16)孩子在我的心目中,是否真的只有缺点而没有任何优点?
17)我会常常限制及否定孩子,而鲜少给他选择吗?
18)孩子有“自己真正做决定”的机会吗?
19)我知道孩子的学习类型吗?

20)我为什么要把孩子送到学校去?

How to motivate your kids

If you want your child to be a stellar student, don’t limit learning to the walls of his classroom. 

Although the skills he’s learning there are crucial to his intellectual and social growth, your child needs your help to open up the world of ideas. 

His renewed joy in discovery will transfer to his schoolwork, so you’ll boost his academic achievement too!

  1. Fill your child’s world with reading. Take turns reading with your older child, or establish a family reading time when everyone reads her own book. 
  2. Demonstrate how important reading is to you by filling your home with printed materials: novels, newspapers, even posters and placements with words on them.
  3. Encourage him to express his opinion, talk about his feelings, and make choices. 
  4. He can pick out a side dish to go with dinner and select his own extracurricular activities. Ask for his input on family decisions, and show that you value it.
  5. Show enthusiasm for your child’s interests and encourage her to explore subjects that fascinate her. 
  6. If she’s a horse nut, offer her stories about riding or challenge her to find five facts about horses in the encyclopedia.
  7. Provide him with play opportunities that support different kinds of learning styles — from listening and visual learning to sorting and sequencing. 
  8. Supplies that encourage open-ended play, such as blocks, will develop your child’s creative expression and problem-solving skills as he builds. He’ll need lots of unstructured play time to explore them.
  9. Point out the new things you learn with enthusiasm. Discuss the different ways you find new information, whether you’re looking for gardening tips on the Internet or taking a night class in American literature.
  10. Ask about what he’s learning in school, not about his grades or test scores. Have him teach you what he learned in school today — putting the lesson into his own words will help him retain what he learned.
  11. Help your child organize her school papers and assignments so she feels in control of her work. If her task seems too daunting, she’ll spend more time worrying than learning. Check in with her regularly to make sure she’s not feeling overloaded.
  12. Celebrate achievements, no matter how small. Completing a book report calls for a special treat; finishing a book allows your child an hour of video games. You’ll offer positive reinforcement that will inspire him to keep learning and challenging himself.
  13. Focus on strengths, encouraging developing talents. Even if she didn’t ace her math test, she may have written a good poem in English class. In addition to a workbook for math practice, give her a writing journal.
  14. Turn everyday events into learning opportunities. Encourage him to explore the world around him, asking questions and making connections.
