10 Tips to Keep Your Children Engaged And Away From Screens

10 Tips to Keep Your Children Engaged And Away From Screens

If you have kids, you know that keeping them away from screens can be hard. They love their gadgets, and they want to use them all the time. Though there are benefits to having children spend time on screens and using technology, there are also drawbacks. Children who spend most of their time staring at screens may become less engaged with the world around them and develop a passive relationship with social media. If you have kids, you know that keeping them away from screens can be hard. 10 Tips to Keep Your Children Engaged And Away From Screens

As a parent, you must determine the balance between screen time and other important activities in their lives. They need to get enough exercise, they should get fresh air and sunshine, they need to have a good social life, and they need to develop strong relationships with people. However, it can be hard to figure out what your child would enjoy doing without technology. Luckily enough, this article can help you.

This article offers ten tips for parents to keep their children engaged in the world around them instead of on screens. These ten tips will help you find new and fun activities to do with your children.

Negative Effects of Too Much Screen Time

There are many negative effects of too much screen time. These can be both physical and social. Children who spend most of their time on screens may experience a loss of energy, they can become sedentary, and they can lose interest in other activities such as sports or reading. If a young child spends too much time on their gadgets, they might not sleep well or eat properly. They could also develop health problems like obesity or diabetes later in life because of the lack of exercise in their lives.

Young children are also at risk of being socially isolated if they spend too much time staring at screens. It is because social media is often used as a substitute for real-life interactions with friends and family members. If children spend too much time pursuing the games or other media they enjoy on their screens, they might become unwilling to interact with others in the real world.

10 Tips to Keep Your Children Engaged And Away From Screens

If your young child spends a lot of time staring at screens, it can be hard to find things for them to do in the real world. Fortunately, with these ten tips, you can find some activities for your children that will keep them engaged and away from screens.

1. Get Routine

You can make sure your children get more physical activity by making sure they get into a routine when playing video games and watching television programs. You should have certain times when your children play video games and watch television each day. It means you should set limits on their time doing these things. You should also get a computer desk that you can use to store the educational games and open-ended toys they use so that they have to get up to play them.

2. Give Them Opportunities to Learn About the World Around Them

You should allow your child to learn through all the senses while having fun. For example, you might try having your child learn about the world around them by exploring different neighborhoods. You could also have your child learn about a different country and culture using a map or a travel book.

3. Encourage Them to Get Outside

You need to take your children outside every day and encourage them to spend time with their friends at school or in the community. You could also take them to an outdoor game if you have a football, baseball, basketball, or soccer field close by. It will encourage your children to spend time outdoors and reduce the amount of time they spend on devices. 

4. Encourage Them to Write

Children who are writing are less likely to use digital devices too much. You could encourage your child to become a great writer by encouraging them to write stories while playing with their toys or playing with their siblings. You could also find creative ways to practice writing every day by encouraging them to write letters that describe what happened in the day.

5. Help Them Make Something

If you want your child to spend less time staring at a screen, try helping them make something instead of playing a game on the computer or phone. You could make them a craft by mixing different pieces of fabric or by creating drawings on paper. You could also give them the task of making a puppet that they can take to school for show and tell instead of bringing a toy.

6. Take Them to Visit Another Place

Your child can get plenty of screen time just by taking them to visit another place such as the park or a museum. Consider taking your child to an educational exhibit that they might enjoy along with other family members like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. If you have older kids, you can try attending a recital or show at the theater so they can be outside while they are doing what they love.

7. Create New Adventures

One of the ideal ways to get a child engaged in new activities is to create their adventures. For instance, you can ask your little one to build a fort in the backyard, play dress-up with them, or have them come up with a story using their imaginations. If you aren’t creative yourself, ask around to see what types of interesting things children are doing in your neighborhood.

8. Make Them Help Around the House

If your children are glued to screens all day, then you might want to make them help with chores around the house. You can also make them help the school run by picking up their sibling or walking to the bus stop. These activities could encourage your children to get away from screens more often and allow them to be more productive members of the household.

9. Play Board Games

Board games are great alternatives to video games and computers. They require concentration and problem-solving skills, which are essential for learning. Play games with your children. Even if you aren’t interested in playing, you can still show your support by offering to buy them a game now and then.

10. Teach Them to Cook

If you want to encourage your children to spend less time looking at screens, you should teach them how to cook their meals. You could ask your little one if they would like to bake something or put together a recipe. You can ask your child to help you prepare the tools and ingredients for cooking. This activity is a great way for your children to learn new skills while having fun at the same time.

Suppose you have agreed to do any of these activities with your children and find it is not working for them. In that case, you should consider talking with your child’s teacher or other adults in their life about how they can improve their engagement with technology. If this doesn’t work, you can temporarily remove all digital devices from the house so they can get more comfortable being unplugged. You should remove devices that are used to communicate with friends while they are away from home and devices outside of the home such as game consoles and tablets.

Life Lesson from my 3 Years Old Daughter

Life Lesson from my 3 Years Old Daughter

Achieving happiness in life is linked with maintaining healthy relationships with our loved ones. In this short story i am sharing a Life Lesson from my 3 Years Old Daughter

Story – Life Lesson from my 3 Years Old Daughter

Yesterday morning while getting ready for office I was brushing my teeth. Without realizing my 3 years old daughter standing right behind me I moved a little backwards resulting my body hit her a little. Because my tooth brush was in my mouth so I couldn’t say sorry to her. As Hadia has recently learnt about using Thank-you and Sorry for different situations from her pre-school teacher, she was expecting me to say sorry without understanding the fact that while brushing her father can’t do so. She waited for me for a little while to apologize which I did not. So her little heart broke and she started crying.

I immediately finished my brushing and kissed her and said sorry to her. Very soon she became normal and forgot what has happened a while ago and we had a great breakfast together 🙂


Later I pondered that with friends, family and colleagues we often forget to say sorry for our mistakes which results in stiffen relationship causing brawls or complete break-up. While our loved ones give us time and expect our apologetic response, we forget to say sorry or sometimes even ignore the matter altogether considering it a minor one; whereas, it may be critically important for someone. Hence it is important for us to pay attention to this aspect and consider improving our Emotional Intelligence Skills (Managing ours’ as well as others’ emotions), enhance Empathic Skills and endeavor to develop trust with our loved ones for healthy relationships.

17 Ways Students Can Make Their Parents Feel Great

17 Ways Students Can Make Their Parents Feel Great

The parents now a days are quite worried about the behavioral changes in their children due to several socio-economical reasons. The gap between parents and youth is increasing day by day due to which the family bonding is getting weaker and weaker. [ This article is about 17 Ways Students Can Make Their Parents Feel Great.] Youth wants liberty, privacy and independence and do not prefer their parents to disturb them. Students and young graduates have forgotten the amount of time and efforts their parents have invested in to raise them. There has been countless efforts and sacrifices that have been put in during the whole parenting journey  

Starting from our birth they have taken care of our food (22years * 365 days * 3 times = 24000 times!), our clothes (daily washing, ironing, new purchasing), our education (daily home works, uniform, school/tuition fee), religious & moral teaching every day (THE REAL GREAT JOB), computer & toys purchasing and God knows how many other countless efforts they have put in to make us a complete human being to survive in this world. Indeed, all those efforts cannot be covered in this article but the overall emphasis is that its our moral and religious mandatory responsibility to take care of them now.

While Wiki also provides a short list on the same subject, below are some small acts of kindness which I request you to consider to show your affection with them and to take care of them:

17 Ways Students Can Make Their Parents Feel Great
17 Ways Students Can Make Their Parents Feel Great

17 Ways Students Can Make Their Parents Feel Great

  1. At start of your career you may not be earning a lot of money yet according to your income, provide your parents with proportional amount of money every month without a miss. Do not bring this process to the point that they have to ask for it. Even if your parents do not need money, still handover some cash directly or indirectly.
  2. Share and discuss things according to their interest and not based on your likings. Your target is to make them smile or laugh and keep them happy.
  3. Do not speak to them loudly. Your communication tone with your parents is entirely different than that of when you speak to your friends. Your interaction with your parents should be based on soft tone, decent wordings and low sound.
  4. While walking, do not walk in front of them. Give them thorough respect by staying behind them. At old age, they may walk slowly hence you need to slow down your speed too instead.
  5. Try to do their small tasks. Filling their water jug, putting their shoes in place, hanging their clothes should be taken care of by you. Spare 5-10 minutes every day and let them observe while you do this. They will feel proud of your acts of kindness.
  6. Use kind words often. For example, “Baba, do you need water or coffee? “Dad, should I bring some rice for you?”
  7. Their health should be one of the prime concerns to you. Closely observe their health, and if you see any abnormality, do take them to hospital. Take care of their medicine routine, record their health statistics properly and every other day ask them on how they feel.
  8. Set multiple reminders about their activities such as taking them for walk, providing them medicines, general cleaning of room, weekend outdoor activity and so on. Stay consistent in your services.
  9. Never ever call them with your name. Call them with respect, love and affection. Use the most decent words according to your cultural ethics such as baba jee, mama jee, mummy, daddy, etc.
  10. When they visit your room or plan to leave the place, open the door for them with respect.
  11. Adjust your daily routines as per their preferences as much as possible. Try to sacrifice your preferences wherever possible.
  12. Take them to the shopping mall once in a while or do their shopping. Buy their clothes and small items such as coffee mug etc yourself and present them with deep love. Buy the things according to their liking, taste, color and size preferences. You may want to buy some books since old people prefer to spend time with books.
  13. Some parents prefer to use social media. Do help your parents with the use of social media. Provide them with guidance and technical assistance if needed. Do it with love and care even if they do not know the basics of technology.
  14. Give full respect to their social circle. Take them to their friends quite often and let them spend quality time with their friends.
  15. If you have different thinking pattern than your parents, try to be as much flexible as possible. Remember that they have been raising you for months and years by taking care of your needs. You need to show a lot of patience and adaptability to respect their point of view.
  16. Shifting them to old houses is a big act of ignorance. Keep them with you and let them enjoy great time with your kids. Their could be some conflicts between you and them on how to raise the kids, yet try to be flexible on what they tell you. Such conflicts should never lead you to a decision point on shifting them to old age house.
  17. Do not server their food in their room, instead, eat the food along with them. While starting the course, serve them first. Also don’t put something in your mouth until they have started. Similarly, try to give them company until they finish.

In the end, I would recommend making a check list of this article and and paste it on any wall in your room or kitchen and read it often to remember. Please do share if you are doing any other good thing in making your parents feel great 🙂

Finally, I would like to request you sharing this article on your social media and sharing with family, friends and colleagues to spread awareness.

5 Reasons Why an International School is Best For Your Kid

5 Reasons Why an International School is Best For Your Kid

All parents want the best for their kid. All kids have the right to a bright and promising future. This is something that all parents should always secure. Ensuring this can be a little tricky for parents that move from one country to another. It’s a good thing that international schools exist. This article is about 5 Reasons Why an International School is Best For Your Kid

If you just moved to a new country and you still want your child to be in top form when it comes to his or her education, you should consider looking for international schools in your area. The following are the top reasons why you should consider enrolling your child in an international school:

Reason #1: Your child’s unique talents and skills will be honored. Your child will be seen as a unique student with particular needs.

An international school, like Bangkok Prep International School, has dedicated programs to evaluate the unique skills and talents of your child. Unlike regular schools, your child will not be forced to participate in activities that he or she is not even interested in. International schools apply advanced methods in determining your child’s unique interests and learning styles.

Your child will feel seen and heard when enrolled in international schools because his or her curricula and activities will revolve on matters that he finds truly engaging and fun. Your child will not have a hard time adjusting to everything because international schools have ready learning structures that can accommodate every unique child’s personality and quirks.

With an international school experience, you wouldn’t need to pressure your child to explore. His or her everyday life will be dedicated to the natural exploration of his or her unique gifts and talents. An international school experience will allow you to see your child as he or she naturally blooms into the person that he or she wants to become. 

Reason #2: Your child will study a curriculum that is recognized all over the world. 

Working abroad will not compromise your child’s schooling if you’d enroll your child in an international school. International schools differ greatly from regular schools in this aspect. A regular school normally follows the national standard or religious standard of its administrators while an international school follows international standards by providing globalized curricula like the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. The IB programme is taught in over 150 countries. Most British and American schools take after it. This means that your child will get to reap the benefits of a Western-style curriculum even if your child is in Asia. What’s amazing is that all his or her credits will be duly honored should he or she apply to a Western university.

Reason #3: Your child will learn in an environment that easily breaks down the language barrier.

An international school is perfect for your child if you’re worried that he or she may not be able to adjust well due to language differences. International schools use English as their main language. Your child will be learning with students who are also fluent and eloquent in English. He or she will have an easier time mingling with kids his age as he’d get to interact with ones he or she can easily talk to. Your child will also not have a hard time keeping up with lessons as all subjects will be taught in English.

As International Schools have students with different nationalities, your child will also be able to easily learn other languages. Learning a different language is easier if there is prior familiarity and it’s always heard. Parents who want their kids to learn different languages go out of their way to even send their kids abroad for total language immersion. Your child will effortlessly benefit from a similar set-up if you’d enroll him or her in an International School.

Reason #4: Your child will have a global outlook.

It’s essential for today’s children to have a global outlook in life. This can be easily achieved if you’d have them enrolled in an International School. International Schools focus on educating students to become excellent global citizens. They have particular programs that empower students with knowledge and skills for international academic and professional undertakings.

As International Schools have culturally diverse students, your child will also have an easier time relating to people coming from different backgrounds and cultures. Your child will also be exposed to mentors from different parts of the world that represent the best of the best when it comes to the field they’re teaching.

Reason #5: Your child will be a member of a colorful and vibrant international student community.

Moving to a different country and starting anew far from family and old friends is quite a big thing to face for a child. They may not share their struggles upfront but you will surely see it in the way that they behave and interact with you. This struggle can be tended to if you’d enroll your child in an International School. Students in International Schools share the same struggle. Your child will be exposed to children who truly understand how he or she feels.

Your child will be classmates with the sons and daughters of diplomats and international entrepreneurs who may or may not frequently move from one country to another.  Your child will be with kids who share the same lifestyle. That will be truly beneficial because your child will feel less alone. Your child will also get to meet other expat families that will make him or her feel that all is truly well.

Story – Success Tip For New Graduates

This short story article provides success tip to new graduates. If it is understood and praticed, will enable today’s youth to get closer to success by a large extent.

Story – Success Tip For New Graduates

Moiz, my 4 years son, was gifted with a new toy car from his aunt. The toy car with its musical sounds and flashy lights was entertaining the little giant. His mother was equally enjoying watching the boy having fun.

While the scene was equally amazing for me, something else was also worth pondering about. I noticed that when Moiz places his hands in front of the toy, the car stops, reverses itself by 5-6 inches, change its direction by 30 degrees and then move forward. Upon hitting the wall (or any other obstacle), again it moves back by some inches, changes its direction and then moves forward.

This automatic pattern continues until the car finds its way. I realized that if the car is left in this mode, it will find its way to go out of the room because the manufacturer has programmed this small toy in a way that it always finds its way out whenever challenged by an obstacle.

Story - Success Tip For New Graduates
Story – Success Tip For New Graduates

This observation triggered a wise thought about successful and unsuccessful people. The successful people are always adaptive to situations. For any challenge they face, they take a step back, asses it logically, consider alternate options and set their new direction to reach their goal.

Regardless of temporary distractions, their power of focus helps them perform consistently until they succeed. They reprogram themselves according to all situations. They always look for new ways of doing things to manage uncertain situations. They treat each moment as the moment of courage, the moment of opportunity, the moment of action and the moment of progress! On the contrary, unsuccessful people permanently shut down themselves as soon as they meet a challenge.

Now that you are starting your career, you need to remember this concept for the rest of your life. You will always do mistakes, that’s inevitable. You cannot guarantee continuous success for everything you start in your life. There will always be many situations where you will have to step back and replan things. Never get disappointed, never stop trying, just keep the engine running and you will find the way to your destination. Good Luck!

And by the way, Moiz is an awesome kid:)

7 Super Powers University Students Must Have To Succeed

7 Super Powers University Students Must Have To Succeed

By Junaid Tahir

This article is about 7 Super Powers University Students Must Have To Succeed

All of us crave for a happy life, peace of mind, mature character and success in life however most of us do not really strive to achieve these goals. Out of us who exert efforts for achieving the goals, a very few are able to make things happen. The main difference between successful and unsuccessful people is the difference between the level of Mental Powers both the categories possess and the power they exert to achieve their targets.

In my opinion, the Mental Powers consist of following seven categories and the intellectuals who possess all these mental muscles can accomplish a great deal of victories in most of the fields of life:

7 Super Powers University Students Must Have To Succeed

1-      The Power of Focus:

There is a story which tells that during the bird shooting session, the instructor asked each shooter what he was looking at. One candidate said, I am looking at the flock of birds, another said, I am looking at the tree where birds are about to sit, however one shooter said that I am looking in the eyes of one of the flying birds! Now, that is the power of focus I want to draw your attention towards.

Focus means to insert all of your energies on one goal and do not let any obstacles change your attention. Remember, you see problems when you move your eyes away from your target. Don’t let your mind be distracted from your goal. Don’t let impure thoughts spoil your plans. Remember, what you focus on increases so don’t let the seeds of negativity get nourished in your brain. Use the Zoom-In and Zoom-Out tool to strengthen your Power of Focus.

2-      The Power of Vision:

A fast pace horse running in the wrong direction will never reach its destination. Instead it will cause misleading ripple effects to its followers too. Building the Power of Vision starts with your thinking style, awareness about your field, your comprehension capabilities and your caliber to imagine the future.

A)      Your thoughts are the seeds for your character because thoughts give birth to actions which become your habits and constitute towards your personality and consequently your destiny. Empowering your thought process involves staying away from negative thoughts, trying to be part of the solutions instead of problems with less criticism and more optimism.

B)      Awareness: Empowering your awareness level involves a lot of reading, meeting with high potency people, watching relevant documentaries and observing people in the industry. Make a habit of reading great magazines and watching news daily to improve your vision.

Once you develop the Power of Vision, your comprehension levels will be as deep as a sea; your thoughts will fly as high as sky and your strategies will be as solid as rocks.

3-      The Power of Now:

People make plans, people forget plans, people fail. Why? They don’t execute. They keep thinking and they keep waiting for the ‘right’ moment to kick off their plans. This ‘right’ moment never comes if they keep waiting for it. The right moment is now. The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up and act. This is understood that planning is important. However if you keep wasting your time in the name of planning, you won’t achieve anything substantial.

Break down the big target into smaller tasks and start implementing one by one starting today. Don’t waste your time as your idea might get implemented by someone else. You might have more tough circumstances with more complications tomorrow. You might have to bear the burden of additional responsibilities so Now is the time to take action. Now is the time to make a difference. Now is the time to make things happen. Remember, your thoughts will not take you anywhere if you don’t implement them. So take action Now !!!

4-      The Power of Positivity:

Successful people possess a positive mindset. To develop this power you must shield yourself from Negativity. Remember that being positive will give you the freedom to look forward instead of looking in the past. If you keep wandering in the past with negative thoughts you will not be able to proceed with your goals. Positive people are part of solutions not part of problems. Positive people convert risks into opportunity. They have a sense of gratitude. They believe in skills not in luck.

If you want to build this power, try staying away from negative souls, make the habit of reading good books, join some nice pages on your social media, read wisdom quotes and surround yourself with positive people.

5-      The Power of Analytics:

Being analytical helps in many ways, for example, breaking down bigger problems into smaller tasks, considering the issue from more wider and multiple angles, evaluating the options from Needs and Wants perspective, differentiating between urgent and important tasks and eventually working on things which matter the most.

Whether you want to analyze large data at work, or you want to purchase a new mobile set, Resolving a technical issue or handling a conflict in family or work, analytical skills help you a lot. Strong analytical skills make the decision making process easy so you need to learn this technique at an early stage of life!

6-      The Power of Flexibility:

Most people think the other way around; in fact being flexible doesn’t mean being weak, instead it portrays your powerful personality trait that you care about others and respect the difference of opinion. It is said: “Better to bend than to break” so, the more flexible you are, the more you will be able to manage stress which will strengthen your thought process.

Keep your ego aside and listen to the perspective of others. Keep your mental doors open and be flexible in changing your plans. Be adaptable to situations because sometimes U-turn in life are fine to take. Don’t get disheartened. Don’t be rigid in your choices. Remember, God takes men to deep waters not to drown them but to cleanse them”.

7-      The Power of ‘Implosiveness’:

Great people are not explosive at all. They are cool in mind and heart. They are not over-sensitive and reactive in nature. When a tragic situation triggers their anger, they analyze it from logical, sentimental and ethical angles and then respond in order to improve the situation and not vice versa. So you must believe that reactive nature will reduce your friends and increase your foes.

–          Summary:

Remember, success is not a destination, it’s a journey. For this journey, there are no escalators so you must take the ladder passage. Which means you have to take a step by step approach to reach the top. If you are in doubt at any stage, just take the next small step and notice the consequences. If all is fine, go ahead; if something goes wrong, take a step back and reassess your direction.
