Education tips: When You Pick a School, Remember That Math Matters | ChildUp | This is me - Parenting | Scoop.it

Parenting Articles- 

In part four of ‘How to Choose a Great School,’ Peg Tyre explains how math should come into play in the early years.

For a good part of the 20th century, most people believed that children needed to be brought to math slowly. Teachers were taught to look at child development through the lens of Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget, who believed, among many other things, that no “a priori or innate cognitive structures exist in man.”

Parenting : Common Sence Approach to School and Snow | This is me - Parenting | Scoop.it

You would think by now we would be able to manage a covering of snow in the winter, and not have to get into a frenzy, but it seems that every year the weather man gives us plenty of warning, but all that proves is that we expect the chaos, rather than we arrange ways to prevent it!

Sarah Lee's insight:

how does your school react to snow? is it sensible to let children out to play or an accident waiting to happen?

My eldest is now 10, and I mentioned the other day in my post 'letting them grow' how hard it is being a parent and knowing whats best to do when your children want to show their Independence, I mentioned how I have been giving my eldest two more and more freedom the past few months, and the other week I took the jump and allowed my eldest to the park with his friends when they called, I know he is, on the most part at least, sensible enough to have this freedom now,

Parent debate : you'll make him gay!

Parent debate : you'll make him gay! | This is me - Parenting | Scoop.it

I saw a story the other day about a 5 year old boy who had never had his hair cut, and now had lovely long wavy blond locks rolling down his back, however since starting school he had asked for it to be cut, and his parents are now going to take him for his first ever hair cut.

Now you see stories like this always get people saying oh silly parents, cut the boys hair, but a boy having long hair will not effect his mental state, is not a form of neglect like some people would happily shout. The comments on the article in The Sun are just crazy!

parent choices : Boys have long hair too.

parent choices : Boys have long hair too. | This is me - Parenting | Scoop.it

'' I few months ago I wrote a post about my experience with the attitudes of people when they see my boys with longer hair and wearing their sisters clothes and playing with dolls making comments such as 'you'll make him gay!' or 'you must have really wanted a girl' you can read that post here. I have a firm belief that children should be given the freedom to grow up and enjoy everything that life has to offer without the restrictions and boundaries of societies perceptions, and I adore the natural free and wild hair styles to match the free and wild adventures!...''
