Although when can you or anybody else make the call that your child is being spoiled rotten? Alfred Adler (1870–1937) believed that “only children” were likely to experience a variety of problems from their financial or social situations. Adler was an Austrian medical doctor, psychotherapist, and founder of the school of individual psychology, he later continued his career by exploring and giving emphasis on the importance of feelings of inferiority which lead Aldee to his theory that because only children have no rivals for their parents’ affection, they will become pampered and spoiled, particularly by their mother. He suggested that this could later cause interpersonal difficulties if the person is not universally liked and admired.

The downside of the ultrasound

We know there are no proven benefits to using the ultrasound in low risk pregnancies as recommended by specialist or doctors. If we want to follow the best practices, obstetric ultrasound scans would be done conducted as infrequently as possible and as quickly as possible. Pregnant woman were told that DES was a safe component to expose there bodies to, which isn’t completely correct nor wrong. DES after exposing it any stage of developing fetus’s can cause devastating consequences for your child later in life. Your child may become subjectified to vaginal and cervical cancer, as well as reproductive tract anomalies, infertility and benign testicular growth in boys. We also know that from ultrasound or waves on animals can cause brain damage or abnormalities. So…

What your kindergartner needs to know through your six grader

Each book has a endless amount of information stored inside that could possibly help advance your child’s lifestyle and skills. The skills that children should read, the information they should learn, math techniques they should master, science terms they should know but that all depends on the educator. Children don’t usually know what they want to learn so it’s the educators responsibility to form curriculums and activities that are going to leave a memorial impact on the mental development of the child.  But how do you just know what to teach? Modern days, you see typically children and young adults with “useless knowledge” or “false facts” which they obtained from somewhere. Parents and Teachers should be teaching structures that avoid this problem. Children have a vast amount of abilities today to gain information but how do we determine what’s right and wrong? Typically today you have to make those types of judgements for yourself and process the information quickly and decisively as possible. It like learning about presidential elect, Donald Trump from a sixth grader, they may know something but the likely hood they did any research past the title or name is usually high. This behavior is beginnings to show its ugly head even in the later years of adulthood. So how do we as a community change our outlook on education and information, by using the information you have a relation too. For example, if you think some form of information is wrong, go out and try it for yourself. The best learning experience comes from physically engaging in the experience.

Cursive becomes obsolete

The world has evolved significantly in the past century through the introduction of computers and other modern technology. Courses taught in educational institutions have frequently kept on pace with these exciting advances, and removal of some obsolete ones…

Adoption of the Common Core Standards has provided as a positive guidance on which skills are most important for today’s learners, such as critical thinking, technology & mental development. Courses in topics that aren’t directly in support of these skills are frequently dropped to allow more time and attention for these new, challenging subjects.

Podcasts can be an invaluable education tool, but first you have to master how to make them. Here are the steps involved in bringing a podcast to life. Follow these steps yourself to create a podcast to share with your students, or share the steps with your students so they can create their own.

Research: Before you hit record, you’ll want to do your research on your topic.

Record: You can record a podcast just using the built-in recorder on a laptop or computer, or you could invest in a few tools — like a high-quality microphone — to improve the sound quality of your podcasts.

Publish then promote!: First you’ll need to host your podcast on an RSS feed or your own website, if you have one. Then you can publish your podcasts on a variety of accessible platforms like iTuneS.

Journal of Educational psychology

Based on these data, the study team categorized victimization into five types based on when it began and ended and how intensive it was. Some kids were never or rarely bullied, some were victimized in their early school years but not in later years, while another group was increasingly victimized in later years.

In Kindergarten, 21 percent of children experienced “severe” victimization and another 38 percent experienced a moderate level of bullying. These proportions declined steadily over the years until the final year of high school, when less than 1 percent were severely victimized and just under 11 percent were moderately bullied.

However, across the years, 24 percent of kids fell into the researchers’ category of “high-chronic” victimization. And these were also the ones most likely to have low school engagement, academic self-perception and academic achievement, particularly in math, the study team found.

“Some pockets of children remain bullied across their school careers.”
