“Little eyes upon you gaze and watch night and day, Little ears that pick up every word you say!
Little hands eager everything you do, Little child who dreams of the day he’ll be like you.” – FS
Each person is born in an environment that influences upbringing as from childhood and from the culture, society or family. The person ‘you’ makes waves to confront the darker shadows and its then being assertive that makes a difference. The world’s disaster, natural or man made may never stop but it’s the more unity of ‘We’ rather than ‘I’ to keep one community worldwide alike and that’s to observe a religion of ‘Humanity’.

Child Help line receives a number of distress calls for medical assistance, emotional support, shelter and assistance with the on-going Natural and man-made disasters.

Kids are born with the capacity to be labeled ‘Genius’ but it’s the parental role that plays a keynote to nurture the genius in them at their tender age. Children below seven, normally begin to think with increasing logic about objects and experiences in their everyday lives. Part of the child’s natural self is the creativity and ability to fantasize, to think beyond the right answer, to wonder why and why not. One way to cultivate this trait, is for parents to strike a balance between challenging a child, exposing him or her to new ideas and activities and letting the child alone to experiment with toys, games and creative explosions varying from drawing, coloring, music, chatting. Most important is Reading, which should be encouraged. The more information stored up in the tiny brains, the more the child can draw on for the creative efforts landing him into the imagination world. To raise innovative thinker leads to a genius mind in the longer run. Kids today are on the brink of a confused lot who seem to have lost the thought, word and action manners due to their upbringing in a so-called mod progressing era. It is the way to ‘jumpstart’ to teach the children the values of life diving into the fantasyland of fairy tales. It’s the need of the time to have meaningful and lighthearted conversation with kids. From the tender age of concrete operational intelligence which is ability to think logically about concrete things, the child grows up and tends to have abstract thought, holding two or more conflicting ideas in the mind at the same time, as well as to thinking morally. Parents find a change as they grow up and realize their enormous potentialities to learn complex skills. Parents need to focus on their own behavior patterns so as not to surface their anxiety, inadequacy, prejudices or set backs to fall a negative impact on the child. A nagging parent who harps on ‘Do this, Don’t do that’ attitude has a push and pull way with the kid. Creativity do not thrive in restrained atmosphere as the child needs a free environment with a step-up learning method of experiencing. While there is a need of discipline, evaluating their skills and emphasizing on certain rules and regulations, a child whose creativity is suppressed will ultimately end up with more inferior complex letting them lose their confidence in comparison to parents who encourage creativity to flower to bloom in free atmosphere leaving aside their own attitude patterns.
Albert Einstein thought ‘Nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mostly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wreck and ruin without fail’ Each kid differs with his own strengths and weaknesses, memory skills and intelligence quotient. Some are branded as slow learners and some have sharp grasping capabilities. Creativity in a kid needs to be cultivated and a Genius is born. Children are born with various intellectual skills.
