Kids n Gifts

June 27, 2007

Junior is studying in 1st standard. He just came home flashing a couple of chocolates from school. On questioning he said – Happy birthday. Little pestering from me to find out who’s birthday returned a blank answer – Dont know!!

For this – the parents ensure all the kids in the class get a couple of chocolates. Not to stop here, some of them give gifts like pencil, rubber, scale, notebook. The child is left with an impression that he/she too has to give a gift in return – puts back pressure on the parents – not all of them can afford that but how will the kid understand this?

I think the teachers have to explain and put a full stop to this. One positive thing in the whole issue is the kid learns to GIVE rather than TAKE or GRAB – something important for ones personal development.

Monday Blues….

June 11, 2007

I keep hearing the song ‘manic monday’ but this post is dedicated to that manic monday blues. Offcourse as per my understanding this problem is due to our total relaxation from friday evening till suddenly we find fun is replaced with gun!!

So how do you beat this? My favourate method is to plan for it.

There was this shocking news that most heart attacks happen on late sundays or twilight zone of monday morning – research may indicate monday morning strees as the direct cause – holy cow , it isnt worth dieing for it right?

Probably a list of issues that will hit us on monday morning will help to relieve this I suppose. A neat list of meetings ( some dreaded organizations have 10am monday meetings) for which you can have written answers, people to meet ( interviews), clients to handle ( that will happen this week – god promise types).

So how do you beat it – if at all you have that problem I mean 🙂
