Hi my single 6 years old daughter is not mingling well with her classmates and interacts with only one or two,pls tell me ways to improve her social behaviour.

The importance of developing emotionally strong childhood. In 21st Century, there is a steady migration from rural to urban world. This created a distance between grand parents and grand children. Along with this, the no. of working parents also increased during the last decade. Therefore, now a days, many children spent their early childhood in day care or toddler center. This raised an issue whether our future generation can cope with these changes. Do our children learn to be emotionally strong ? Kindly, post your comments and views.

My three and a half year old(only) son is an expressive and verbally active child at home. He is enthusiastic about showing off his physical strength and adventure wherever possible.But when it comes to learning at school he firmly denies telling happening or what he did at school that day. He firmly refuses to follow instructions regarding school or learning. This goes to the extent of stubbornness and even ready to be reprimanded than give in.He goes to a CBSE school which follows XSEED books with a montessori method of teaching. We have a happy joint family with grandparents and parents paying sufficient attention to his play and learning.He would not follow instructions of recital or coloring even before the close family circle. Then what could be the reason for this behavior and how should be this dealt with?

I am a working mother of 18 m onths old boy. Recently he has picked up the habit of beating me, his dad and his grand father. He doesnt beat always. Just when I return from office, or just when he woke up from his sleep. I have tried to tell him firmly this is not the right behaviour and people will call him bad boy. I didnt spank him or I didnt shout at him. I was soft and firm. But still there is not sign of change. Any other suggestions please

The current education system focuses more on marks and academic achievement at the cost of holistic learning. Is this a healthy trend? What are the implications on a child’s future?

In a leading sari store in Chennai, a shoe-clad two-year- old was creating havoc, running wild on the sari display tables. The child’s behaviour was attracting attention from the other shoppers. Her grandfather tried to calm the child down. Unperturbed by the child’s antics, the mother however remonstrated with the grandfather to allow the child to do what she wanted. Do you think the mother should have handled the situation this way?
