It is the time of year again and local shops and malls are flocked with parents shopping for toys. While Santa Claus does not give much thought about the kind of toy he gives away on Christmas, more and more parents are interested in choosing the best educational toys for their children. Since parents wish the best for their kids, toys which are educational are becoming the number one option when shopping for gifts this holiday season.
We all know that children spend most of their time playing. Play is the most important activity of a child in line with eating, sleeping, and learning. Most parents however control the play trying to make it more inclined to learning. That is where educational toys come into action. Toys that involve music, shapes, colors, cause and effect, and connecting can stimulate a child’s brain especially if they are introduced between the ages zero to five. The fun part about these toys is they allow children to enjoy their play while being taught something. Having all these facts established more parents shop for toys that are labeled as educational.
There are many questions to consider when shopping for educational toys for children. While it is true that toys can nurture a child’s imagination and development, every child is unique. A good learning toy for one may not work for another; some find it interesting while others do not. That being said, asking the following questions can help you buy the best toys to give as gifts to children:
Is the toy appropriate for the child’s age?
Most toys have a manufacturers age recommendation. This is based on research and is most of the time accurate. Use it as a guideline when shopping for toys. Many parents subscribe to the rationale that their child is smarter than their age and therefore opt to buy toys that are meant for higher age brackets. Toys are meant to maintain a fun level. When a toy is too complicated for a child’s age, it will not grow with the child. It is still best to take a manufacturers age recommendation into consideration.
Does the toy match the child’s learning style?
Some children are visual learners and others learn more through sound. Parents are most likely the best ones who know their children’s style. Shop for toys which can encourage a child to interact and respond. If a child is a visual learner, go for puzzles or building toys. Toys that play music and have demonstrations are good for kids who learn more through sound. It is advisable to go with the child’s learning style but it is also good to introduce both audio and visual toys accordingly.
Is the toy safe for the child?
When shopping for toys, make sure that they are not toxic or harmful. Never mind buying sharp-edged toys for they can cause cuts and bruises. Be careful when choosing toys with small parts. Children may accidentally swallow them and choke. Always consider safety when buying toys.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and feed him for a life time. Education from school will get you job that will feed you daily but we want to give you a continuing education that will teach you how to use your knowledge to feed yourself and your family for a life time.
Knowledge is power, your skills are YOUR power; and no on else’s. It’s not your boss’s power and it’s not’s the owner of the company that you work for. So stop using it to feed them only and start using it for yourself and your love ones. Your knowledge and your skills are like your fishing sprout; with it, you could go out there and deep it in the sea of the universe and let the fish come to you. You could use that beautiful mind of yours and put it out there; share it with other great mind and people that are looking for it. Yes! You are worth so mush more then you think, I’m sure that you know something and have answer to someone’s question out there. And that person is desperately looking for you to help him, inform him or guide him to the solution. But your fishing sprout that hold the solution that will help them solve their problem is no where to be find. Ho yeah I know where it is, in your boss’ ocean catching fish for him.
We have a cousin that just graduated in dentistry. He have been going to school and worked hard to get there. We are so proud of him. He Just started is first job as a dentist in a clinic in Miami and Wisler had set up an appointment with him to get his teeth check. As Wisler was getting excellent service from his private dentist, he was bombarding our cousin with question about how to better take care of his teeth. Wisler was amazed with the baggage of information that our cousin was providing him with. He knows everything you need to know about what is going on in your mouth and why. We understand the importance of an education; it’s because of the education that he had received at school that he was able to get all this knowledge. Don’t you think that there are people out there that are face with a mouth situation and need information, tips, advice and guidance to respond to their mouth situation issue or concern, without running to see a dentist right there and then? It happen all the time, we are in the information age, people want to know before they make a move or take a decision, and they want to know now!! Understanding the secret on how to share our knowledge to them is what’s going to make you move forward.
You could get up everyday, and go to the same spot to get your fish and from time to time change the spot if you don’t get along with the others who comes to get their fish too, or if you thing you are not getting enough fish at that spot. It doesn’t matter because if you don’t get up very day to go get that fish, you will not eat and you will not be able to feed your family. Or, you could choose to become your own fish provider. For that you have to change your life style and develop rich habits that will replace the old one that are not getting you ahead.
That’s not it; you cannot just go out there like you are the best fisher man in town. You could actually waist a lot of time and energy and catch no fish or not enough. You have to learn the right techniques, get the best training, the right equipment, the right instructor etc… You could even make a research on what kind of fish you want to get and where you could find them. All that makes you more effective to get the results you want.
