How to Make your Child Nursery Ready without Playschool

Now a day, many schools have started the trend of taking interview of children before giving them admissions in the school.

As a result, parents have to focus not only on the child growth but also the overall growth like how the child interacts with others, what knowledge he possesses, is he able to speak properly, is he able to speak counting, alphabets and many more. Due to the competition parents send their child to play school so that there he learns things properly.

In the playschool children are taught many rhymes, poems, alphabets, counting and many other things. Earlier children are sent to these schools when both parents are working and they need someone to take care of their child in a proper way but now this becomes a trend. Most people send their child to play school just by seeing others. Now a day, play school is not a choice but an obligation.

You can prepare your child for an interview ready at home itself. You just need to give little attention to your child.

For every child, home is the first school where they started learning everything and whatever knowledge, skills, morals they learn at home will be there with them until the end of their life. Because of that it’s been said always ingrain good things in your child so that they do good things throughout their life.

Ways to Teach Children at Home

Repetition of Words

Children has very high grasping power. They don’t know anything when they have taken birth i.e. they learnt nothing when they are in a womb of their mother. They started learning things by seeing the surroundings.

How we behave, what we speak, the way we pronounce things they started doing so. If we want to make them learn things first we have to make habit of repeating the same things again and again so that by hearing these words they started speaking themselves.

Imagination Power

Never stop your child from doing things. Many kids have a great intellectual mind. They have a habit of imagining things, drawing things.

Help your child in growing imagination by playing a variety of games like alphabet recognize game, make different colour folded paper and ask your child to recognize it, tell them different stories during night time and many more things you can do.

Encourage Playing

Never stop your child from playing. Never reduce their playing time for studying and learning. Playing not only helps in physical health but also helps in mental health.

Help your child to learn new things by playing like you can make them in learning to count through ball catches he miss, you can make him learn rhymes through dancing.

Give Time to the Child

Children don’t want anything from parents. They only want their precious time. Never ignore your child for work. Even if you are working parent after coming back from work talk to your child, ask him what you have done in a day, what new things he learnt. 

Never give an excuse of your tiredness to your child. If you keep on ignoring your child, your child can become conservative or can even start hiding things from you.

Avoid Comparing with Others

Every child is special. Never compare your child with others. This thing discourages them and hurts them more that can result in loss of imagination, hatred, conservative nature and many more. Always encourage them, help them in learning new things.

Even if they make any mistake help them in learning correct things. If you want your child to learn proper and good things always encourage them. We all are human, we all make mistakes and we learn from these mistakes only. Always encourage them and appreciate their efforts.

It’s been said, “Children are very innocent. The way we carve them, they take shape in that way”. Thus, it is important to help a child from the beginning onwards.

Always remember it’s not necessary for your child to go preschool for ingraining good things but it’s you who is important in their growth. Help your child in learning new things. It’s only you who can make them scientist or can ruin them.

The way you make them now, they will become in the future. Playschool is not an obligation, do not make the burden on your child's shoulders. It is their age of seeing the world and learning things by themselves. Help them in learning a correct thing, make them know but don’t overburden them.

It is important in every part of everyone’s life. It reflects personality of an individual. Handwriting depicts hidden emotions of an individual.
Good handwriting skill let the kids express themselves in a better way and helps them to communicate easily with the people around them. The way kids understand their surroundings, their ability to grasp pencil are the foremost points that help them to write well.
Whether you are a teacher, a home tutor, a parent or guardian, it is your responsibility to help them write in a better way. If kids start practicing handwriting skills by their own then it is really good. Otherwise you need to take a call and help in improving their handwriting.
However, if you think to take a start and realize that your kid’s handwriting needs improvement then it’s never be too late. You can start at any point of time, only there is a requirement of proper techniques.

Reasons behind kid’s negligence for handwriting:

Children, especially in their early ages have a great desire to have a beautiful handwriting. However, often times they get frustrated and annoyed due to the lack of coordination.
Another reason for their frustration is that they mostly do not find it easy to improve their handwriting and it results in making their handwriting even worse than before.
Due to advent of technologies many kids finds handwriting as an unimportant task but that’s not the case. Sometimes even the parents and teachers do not pay attention to it.
For every child, learning always starts from home. So, paying attention in early ages is fruitful as it is an accurate period to ingrain all the good habits in them.

Why is handwriting still important in the digital age?

When a child start speaking, next emphasis puts on his handwriting because it is said whatever you write, you will never forget that in your entire life.
Handwriting depicts emotions of kids. Handwriting is an important part in school activities. Classwork, Homework, assignments, projects, charts, models, exams; each and every part of school life involves handwriting. It depicts the real personality of human beings. If your handwriting is good chances of getting good marks in exams also gets increases. 
Writing is not only restricted to the school or college life but it holds importance in our daily life. When we need to do any calculation, we do it in paper that requires writing. A list of shopping, doctors prescription, notes, office work all involves the usage of handwriting. 
If your children have a good handwriting, you feel satisfaction that they will always be able to express their ideas in a better way. It also improves their pride and they will be satisfied and happy.
On the other hand, a child who does not possess good handwriting surely feels complex. Especially after looking at the notebooks of his friends and other kids in the class, he/she might feel ashamed. As a result, he will start hesitating and will avoid writing and expressing his ideas clearly.
Even these small things matter a lot and you should not neglect them if you want your child to have a bright and successful future.
Handwriting has direct impact on legibility. If your kids are not able to write well and people fail to read their writing then there is no point to write anything.
Confidence building:
A good handwriting is also important for improving the confidence of your child. The children can write freely and express their ideas confidently without any hesitation or reluctance.
Some children become under confident due to these small negligence and its after effects become worst for the child’s life and his career. It might create a serious mess.
You should remain careful about all these things happening in your kid’s life and you should ask him/her to share the problems with you from the early age.
A person having a good handwriting seems more. Most people only focus on making concepts and forget about the importance of presentation.
Would you like to eat from a plate that is well decorated and clean or from a plate that is full of mess? You should think about it and let your kids think on it as well. It is for their betterment.
There are different ways that can be used to improve the handwriting of your kids. You just need to be patient and motivate your kid to remain determinant. Some of the ways that can help you in improving your kids’ handwriting are written below.

Continuous Process:

First of all, you must understand that improving handwriting is a continuous process. It requires lot of practice and attention. The parents and teachers must admire the kids for their efforts and give them prizes to let them remain motivated and focused.
There is a great need for scheduling regular practice sessions. You should keep monitoring their work and keep supervising them to let them know the importance of this matter.

Making Practicing a Fun Activity:

You can make the task of practicing a fun activity in different ways. Offering the kid a special colorful pencil or a rainbow colored pen can be very beneficial.
Do not always ask them to write boring stuff from their books, rather ask them to think about some interesting stories; it will also improve their creativity.

Puzzles and Games should be Encouraged:

Kids mind gets distracted easily. If focus always put on the writings through boring methods they find it hard to do. By making learning session little innovative, you can help kids to write well.
You can ask them to try word puzzles like hangman, anagrams etc. You can also ask the kids to think of a list of words that are related to a specific thing or place.

Pinpointing the Actual Problem:

There are four major areas in which the problems related to handwriting lies. They include the formation of the letter, the sizing of letters, spaces between the letters and words and the alignment of line.
The symmetry of letters is also important. The kids’ practice should be focused on the letters first and then on the words; later on the sentences.

Making Use of the Right Tools:

Do not give a very heavy and long pencil to your kids. Rather let them write with a normal sized pencil that is neither too heavy nor too light. Very small sized pencil also creates trouble.
Let them write comfortably. Also, ensure that the kid has a fine eraser that is handy enough to be used whenever required. The children should not be made afraid of making mistakes. Let them make mistakes and then teach them to correct them.

Letting Them Write Outside the Box:

There are some surfaces that prove to be great for writing something on them like a foggy glass window, a fine patch of dust on a smooth surface, a bowl of sauce that is left over after a meal, etc.
It does not matter that whether the kid practices with his pencil, a stick or his fingers. If you appreciate his creativity, it will surely motivate him to write in a better way the next time.

It is Never too Late:

Although it is important to pay attention to the kid’s handwriting in their early ages, however, it is never too late to start. Even the people in their old age also sometimes try to work out on their handwriting.
The kids, even in the secondary school, college or university should always be motivated and advised to work out for the improvement of their handwriting.

Making the System Better:

It is not always the fault of the children for having a bad handwriting. Mostly it is because of the system in which they are taught. The teachers do not care about the children’s handwriting; they just focus on making up their concepts.
No doubt that it is essential to concentrate on clearing their concepts, but the importance of making the kids able to convey and express their thoughts and ideas on paper can also not be negated.

Importance of Pen Grip:

If you want the physical needs of writing to be developed in your child, you must understand the importance of letting them hold the pencil in the right way, making their posture accurate, helping the control the movement of their hand, dexterity, and coordination.
Most of the children grip their pencils with their middle finger, index finger and the thumb. It is also fine to let the entire assembly rest on their ring finger.
The calligraphy writers who have amazing skills of writing mostly rest their pencils on their first knuckle. It lets their blunt end point in a direction opposite to their body.
The children should be appreciated to use the grip that comforts them and lets them write in a relaxed way. Even if there is a need of changing the grip that is fine; initially, they will feel weird and uncomfortable but then after some time it will become normal.

Putting Some Force on the Shoulder Group:

Most of the times children do not write, rather they make use of their fingers for drawing or scrawling the letters. It is supposed to necessitate picking up the entire hand whenever there is a need to write down a new word. This causes the fingers of the child to get tired quickly.
As a result, jagged writing appears due to cramped fingers. It is better to make use of the shoulders’ muscles while writing; it helps in increasing the control as well as endurance.
For that, the kids have to pick up their hand and then draw a big circle randomly in the air. The muscles that are used in this process come in the category of the shoulder group.

Practice is the Only Option:

Whatever strategies you use for improving the handwriting of the kids, you have to make sure that they keep practicing in daily basis. Even if their writing gets improved, they should not stop practicing. You can ask them to write on an interesting topic on daily basis.
This will also let them think creatively and widely. You would have heard the saying “practice makes a man perfect”. It also makes a kid’s handwriting perfect. You should tell the importance of practice and hard work to your kids from their childhood.

Take Suitable Breaks in between:

The children should not be forced to keep writing for a long time. Rather you should give them suitable time for break in which they can play different games and relax.
Otherwise they will find it a burden to do the exercises for the improvement of their handwriting.
In fact you should persuade them by saying that they would be allowed to play games for a long time after completing their writing assignments.

Children Suffering from Dyslexia:

There is a disease called Dyslexia that also affects the handwriting of the children. The parents and teachers should remain conscious and must keep checking the causes for their bad handwriting.
Rather than scolding them and compelling them to write properly, they must be handled with love. Meanwhile you should also consult a doctor if you find something abnormal in their handwriting.

Writing Style does not Matter Much:

It does not really matter that whether the kid’s handwriting is separate or joined. You should only be concerned with the neatness of their writing. The letters should also be symmetrical.
The size of the words should also be standard; it should neither be too short nor too long. But overall there is no compulsion to change the shape of the letters if they are neat, clear and legible.

Final words:

The importance of a good handwriting should also be taken into consideration to remain motivated for helping your children to write well. Time and commitment are the two foremost things required to improve the handwriting of the kids.

Kids are innocent. They do not know how to express their feelings in the proper way. Sometimes in a playful mood and other times, in an anger they do something that as a parent we do not like it.
The ways you act during that time impact their behavior. If you handle the situation calmly and explain things to them, may be it takes time to understand them but that help them to know the root cause of the situation. If you shout or give them a punishment then out of curiosity they again do the same thing.
Being a parent or guardian, I know you want to teach your children discipline. Believe me, you are doing great job in bring up your child. When it comes to kids, they are fun loving, they have build their own world in their imagination where they talk, play, smile.
They need care, love and attention from you. In short, there is nothing called bad behavior in them. Instead they are doing best in themselves and we are unable to understand them.
The most decent and effective way to guide kids is we need to treat them in such a way, as we want them to treat others i.e. with understanding and compassion.
When we yell, shout, spank on them, they start rebelling us and become more aggressive. Their heart is like clay whatever treatment, behavior we show to them, that clay start molding in that shape. While guiding kids we need to be more attentive as our words directly influence their heart.
Punishment is not a right way to teach discipline or Discipline does not mean punishment.
Most of the people think it is impossible to discipline children without rewards or punishment. The reality is it depends upon your understanding of discipline. Discipline has hidden word “self” in itself which symbolize self-controlling of yourself.
As a parent we want our kid to understand the difference between right and wrong, what is good and bad for him. We want him to guide in a way that he will become good human being along with good citizen.
Our motive behind teaching them discipline is to guide them in a right direction so that they would not landed up in a bad situation. Everyone wants good for his or her kids that’s why teaching discipline is very important.
Discipline does not mean punishment always. Research shows that punishment results in misbehavior, irritations in their behavior. Punishments cause kids to be more defensive and aggressive. It causes release of adrenalin and other fights hormones and cause switch off others hormones like reasoning, cooperatives, which results in more drastic situation.
Punishment causes a gap between kids and us. They start fearing from us, starts hiding things from us that result in disconnection.
With the time, our influence on them gets decreases. It results in lowering their IQ, as they do not feel confident enough to learn new things.
Punishing your child is not an effective way to raise happy, responsible and considerate kids. It always teaches wrong lessons.
Instead of punishment, if we stay calm and teach them everything within set limits, our kids will always follow those things. They never resist guidance. They will share their feelings; thoughts with you because they know you are always there for helping and guiding them if they did anything wrong.

Ways to Discipline Kids Without Punishment:

Here are some simple and practical ways for teaching discipline to your children without any punishment or scolding.

Control your own emotions:

Before guiding anything to kids we need to regulate our own emotions this is how they learn to manage theirs. Being a parent, we are their role models.
We are the one whom they see, admire. Whatever reaction we show to them, they behave accordingly. Thus, we need to control our emotions as much as possible. We need to handle situation calmly as much as we can.

Respect their feelings:

Children have very innovative mind if it is grown in right direction. It is not always good to make them follow our decisions. We also need to respect their feelings and thoughts.
Try to listen their words calmly, help them in understanding the things by their perspective. If you always reject their feelings, they become dishearten by that and refuse to accept anything from you.
Listen to them carefully and accordingly guide them.

Learning through Games:

Kids have playful nature. They love to play new games. If you interact with them friendly and make them learn things through games. They love to do it.
You can play games likes puzzles for making their mind sharp. For making them realize the importance of money you can play business today game with them.


Children do the things that you do. They have strong power of imitation. You can take benefit of that thing by making them learning new things without getting irritating.
Thus, that will help you in making them understand without punishment like you can brush your teeth with them.
It will help them in knowing the importance of brushing teeth and also teach them how to do brush. You can make them learn principles by doing it in front of them like saying thank you to everyone while purchasing things from stores, by de-boarding buses or rickshaws. Be a role model for your children.

Set limits but with Empathy:

Setting limits and boundaries are very important in every ones life in order to guide correct and proper paths. When kids itself know and realize that this thing is wrong for them so they accordingly guide themselves.
You can make them understand things either rudely or through calm both have different effect on his mind like
“It is too late, why can not you listen to me idiot, go to sleep” – rude manner
Or you can say it calmly “I know you want to play more but it is good for your health if you go to bed now” – Calm manner
If you feel like from past days you are not able to connect with your child properly not even able to guide them in proper direction. Start from today. It’s never be too late. Your child is your responsibility. The more friendly and calmly you behave with them, more they become frank with you and they love to share things with you.
Being a parent it is really important to understand things with a point of view. Guidance is important but punishment is not important always. Care them with love. Respect them before you want them to respect you.
Improve yourself first if you want to improve them. If you want them to share everything with you, you need to take first step towards them then only they can take others steps towards you. “Love and care can even turns barren lands into green land.” remember that.
