Why preschools play a vital role in your kids education

16

Preschool can dramatically change the quality of adult life. Theres been considerable research in this area and most of the findings had concluded that quality preschool programs affect children positively. The initial years of a child’s life are a crucial development period. Its the time when 75% of your childs brain growth takes place. Kids who are nurtured and stimulated during these years are much more prepared for kindergarten and are more likely to have social skills needed to have a successful kindergarten experience.

Besides producing positive effects on childrens learning and development, high-quality preschool education also has effects on the moral and ethical behavior of kids. Its been seen that children who receive high-quality preschool education are less likely to get involved in crime, substance abuse and other illegal activities than their peers who did not attend any preschool. Thus, preschool education holds an important place when you think about proper and wholesome kids education.

Having said that, It is also important to select a right preschool for your kid. Research suggests that when children are exposed to a learning environment that coincides with their personality, temperament and traits. The reason being children are born with their natural style of interacting with or reacting to people, places, and things. And if they are put in right learning places then the result is increased self-confidence, a positive attitude towards learning, enhanced creativity and a wholesome development.

Besides sending your child to preschool to ensure that he/she has a wholesome development, It is also important for you as a parent to spend devoted time with your kid. Whether its playing in the yard with your kid or while setting the breakfast table and trying to wrangle information about his/her day, or may be telling bed time stories, you must interact with the kids. Also its important for you to participate in different preschool programs so that your kids first educational experience is a happy and effective one. Because a high quality preschool program involves parents, children and teacher where they all contribute, and actively participate to create a learning environment that is full of growth.

All The Indian States Should Provide Kids Education Free Of Cost

20

Right to education is one of the basic rights that are given to all the citizens of the country. After independence, many efforts have been made by the Government of the country to educate the people. At the time of independence, the literacy rate of the country was very low of around five to ten percent. The government has taken many steps and recommended many reforms. For spreading education and making it easily accessible to the masses, the Government opened many schools across the country for spreading education. Free education was provided at these schools.

The main aim was to ensure that the people should come to this school and get educated. At that time, the Indian government had asked many big industrial firms and rich people to open schools in order to help them educate people. Many schools were opened by these people to educate the common mass. After the combined efforts by the Government and the nonprofit organizations, the literacy rate in India has increased.

At the end of British rule in 1947, the literacy rate in India was 12% and the present literacy rate in India is 74.04%. India has achieved a lot of success as far as increasing the literacy rate is concerned. But the country has to go a long way as far as achieving the literacy rate is concerned. In various states in India, there is a lot of disparity in the literacy rate. The Government has to take many steps to remove the disparity in terms of education in between various states of the country. Making education is one of few steps that will help in increasing the literacy rate in the country.

One step the Government is taking is that it is opening nursery schools across the country to provide elementary education to the small children. The public schools earlier provided free of cost education to the students. But later a nominal amount was charged. The disparity in literacy rates in various states has to be looked into. The government should also provide the people with public directory India where they look for schools where their children can study. All the facilities and contact information for the schools must be mentioned in the directory. This directory must be available for both offline and online so that the students can access the same from anywhere and anytime.

19

The Oxford dictionary describes play as: to fulfill, to occupy oneself, to have the ability to perform, to undertake or exercise activities for pleasure.

Not any particular child, but every child in any nation, environment or circumstance needs play. It’s absolutely necessary for children to play, to express themselves social, emotionally and physically. Play allows itself to be an individual creation or to be shared with others, it can be pulled in any direction letting it be turned into anything a child would like, preparing a healthy start to a lifetime of learning. Play is so special that its generosity even includes having fun; in fact that is one of the most important things about it. It has so many benefits that head off in every direction developing all the important ingredients for strong head start in a child life.

It is the adults job to explore the conditions which are best for maximizing the potential benefits of play for children to develop these social skills. One of the ways to do this is to provide and encourage games that are fun, exciting and positive for children. Many social skills are learnt through co-operative activities allowing the child to learn how to confidently form stronger friendships and relationships with siblings and parents.

Activities that involve interacting with others teach children not only about themselves but also about other childrens feeling needs and wants. Since they have learnt to value others’ emotions they develop skills to handle confrontations and conflicts in the future.

It’s also important for a child to develop physical strengths along with the social and emotional. Play has a huge impact in this development for children of varying ages, abilities and interests. Physical play strengthens a child’s fine motor skills as well as gross motor skills. Fine motor skills include such things as eye, mouth, wrist, finger and toe movements, whereas motor skills are the exercise of the larger muscle groups like the arms, legs and torso. This motor play provides critical opportunities for childrens overall strengthening of muscles, nerves and brain stimulation.

Play involves social, emotional, and physical learning. Included in all these types of learning comes cognitive development, an important result of play. Play gives children the opportunity to understand the world, interact with others in social ways and to express and control emotions. Play is a child’s opportunity to practice the skills they are building, and to try out new tasks. This gives them the framework and knowledge to solve more complex problems. All these things are needed for a child to get a healthy start in life. But the most important part of play is having fun. Play and fun are inseparable from each other. Without play, fun doesnt exist and without fun play cant exist.

Study Finds Popular Cholesterol Drugs Vytorin, Zetia Not Effective

18

A recent study appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine has questioned the effectiveness of the popular cholesterol medication, Vytorin and its sister drug Zetia. Vytorin, a combination of Zetia and the generic drug Zocor, is the second most profitable pharmaceutical manufactured by Merck & Co. The Securities and Exchange Commission reports that sales of Vytorin and Zetia have raked in an astonishing $21 billion worldwide since 2003.

Although ezetimibe, the active ingredient in Vytorin and Zetia, has been shown to reduce cholesterol slightly, its ability to unclog coronary arteries is less than that of niacin, a cheap B vitamin, often available over the counter, according to the article. Additionally, Vytorin and Zetia competitors have been shown to prevent heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular diseases at a less expensive price tag, whereas Zetia and Vytorin have not been proven to do either, according to the study. In contrast to Lipitor, Zocor and other statin-type drugs which block cholesterol production in the Liver, Zetia prevents cholesterol absorption in the intestines. The difference between how the drugs reduce cholesterol has helped Zetia’s popularity, despite the fact its effectiveness has been questioned. Many patients have been prescribed Vytorin as an alternative to the unconfortable side effects of Niacin and other statins’ including liver problems.

This is the third study in the last two years that has cast doubt on the effectiveness of the pharmaceutical giant. Additionally, in August 2009, Merck and Schering-Plough agreed to pay $41.5 million to settle class-action lawsuits accusing the companies of withholding unfavorable information about the drugs. Due to their recent merge in Nov. 2009, both companies are responsible for the lawsuit. Vytorin has been linked to potentially harmful side effects, including a high rate of cancer deaths, according to a controversial study released in 2008.

These studies also question whether the Food and Drug Administration prematurely approved the drugs without requiring additional studies that illustrate the drugs’ effectiveness or ability to prevent heart attacks. Merck waited three years before starting a research study to examine the effect on heart attack rates among Zetia and Vytorin patients.

Additional studies will be conducted to further examine the effectiveness of the drugs, including heart attack prevention; however results are not expected to be available until at least 2012. Leading cardiologists have advised patients to use cholesterol drugs like Zetia and Vytorin only if his or her cholesterol levels have not improved with the use of other medications and life-style changes. Oftentimes, patients pursue a Vytorin lawsuit to seek monetary compensation to cover medical treatments due to cardiovascular complications.
