Conscious Parenting and Kids Happiness: - Shattering The Matrix

Q. You say that the parenting is the most difficult job in the world. Inspired or lost in the technology matrix? The many ‘entertainment’ options phones give us distort our ability to connect with people right next to us.

Inspired or lost in the technology matrix?

We live surrounded by an increasingly complex matrix of impulses (transmitted via TV, media and the internet) that allow strangers of all sorts to interfere in our mental, emotional and spiritual development. Understanding this intricate network and how the human brain interacts with it is becoming our door to happiness and health. Our interaction with the Net, with TV and with computers has replaced our interaction with nature which in its magical way nurtures our cognitive,emotional, physical and psychological well-being The self or the personality is a bundle of socially-influenced traits that emerges and is formed gradually. A great deal is known about the links between our behaviour and TV, and between our emotions and computer games, because there have been thousands of studies on these subjects. Divergent thinking. Musicians are more likely to use both hemispheres of their brain and more likely to use divergent thinking in their thought processes.

Divergent thinking

Divergent thinking is essential for creativity. It is the ability to see lots of possible ways to interpret a question and lots of possible answers to it. It is important to vary thought processes so that children use both convergent and divergent thinking - Natasa Pantovic It is a thought process used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possibilities.

Positive Parenting: Mindful Parenting in Action (Tips) Divergent thinking. Do rewards, punishment work? In an experiment, children’s brains reacted strongly to positive feedback and scarcely responded at all to negative feedback.

Do rewards, punishment work?

Our basic strategy for raising children or teaching students is a reward and punishment strategy. We are what we believe we are - C.S. Education of the future. In a typical classroom in Finland, students work in small groups.

Education of the future

The teacher nurtures independence and active learning, allowing them to develop skills to understand and solve problems. “You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. Arts make students smart. When children are physically active and creative, they tend to focus better and work more enthusiastically with the rest of the curriculum.

Arts make students smart

Arts, sport, music and drama are often viewed as fun extra-curricular activities for children but are given less importance compared with core subjects such as English, science, or mathematics. The arts should be taken seriously as a source of inspiration, as a way of life - Nataša Pantović. Tapping the brain’s magic. With traditional educational methods – its curriculum and its focus on examinations – students quickly lose motivation and interest for science and its magic.

Tapping the brain’s magic

The human brain is truly extraordinary. A healthy brain has some 200 billion neurons. Shifting education goals. Education should teach children how to ask appropriate questions, how to analyse a problem, stimulate a desire to learn, and flexibility to consider different points of view.

Shifting education goals

One of the biggest problems of education today is that the ‘factory model’ of teaching: the top-down approach and the rewards-and-punishments ap­proach, limit students’ ability to contribute with their imagination and creativity. In the Finnish educational model, active learning is taken seriously. Schoolchildren do not sit at their desks memorising. Nordic countries’ teaching methods reaping rewards. Unesco statistics of tertiary education enrollment by country show that while 21.5 per cent of Maltese students successfully enrol into university each year, 70 per cent of the students in Nordic countries continuing their education after secondary school. Nordic countries use techniques and tools that encourage collaboration - Nataša Pantovic Comparing the Nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland) with other EU countries, the difference clearly stands out. Create freedom in the learning environment.

Allow your child to cook, wash dishes, and take care of plants and animals. These activities are extremely interesting for children because they can act as grown-ups. A child has a deep longing to discover that the world is based on truth. Respect that longing. In our attempt to help children grow into inspired adults, we wish them to carry the youthfulness of their souls and the wonders of childhood into their old age.
