Many kids who attend preschool start talking at very early. Many new parents ask us if it is better for babies to talk early or not? Is it something they are born with?
Firstly, we personally do not think this is hard-wired. There is no timer in the brain of a baby that says, now you are 1 years old, you should start saying words. It is very much dependent on the stimulation the baby gets from their environment. Positive human stimulation shapes the talking capability of the child.
Secondly, babies who can communicate early are very easygoing babies.
Because they can express themselves and are not as frustrated as a baby who uses sounds to communicate.

Is your child a vegetable lover!!!!
We all know Vegetables are good for our health, but they are not very popular among preschoolers. We at BG future school presume that the advertising departments of junk, sugary and chocolaty food companies do much better than the advertising departments of vegetable companies. It is very simple. If we had the same publicity for vegetables that we do for junk food, it would be easy to get kids to eat vegetables and they would do it happily.
Even more than advertising, the best way to get kids to eat vegetables is to love eating vegetables yourself and to buy lots of them for your home. If this is what kids have on hand, this is what they will eat. Obviously, this is not as easy to do as we might think. Otherwise, everyone would do it and every kid in the world would eat vegetables at every meal.
Here are some tips to make your child a vegetable lover
Talk positive about vegetables and their health benefits
Tell ,them that you love vegetables and that’s the secret of you growing taller and stronger
Avoid Junk food , even its occasional
Narrate bed time stories around characters revolving around vegetables and greens

Why it is important to teach ourselves to be happy at the workplace
Happier people actually end up being more successful.
How to choose to be happy
• Focus on the best you can do with what you've been given. "What is on the top (your boss), you cannot control," "Make the best of what is by your side (peers) and below you (subordinates)." Be professional about the job you've been assigned and do it well.
• Make wise financial choices: Most measurements of happiness show a slight U-shape, or dip, in happiness levels in the age group of 35 to 40 to 50, . "In the midlife, there is a lot of pressure -- of young children, parents and debt. You feel squeezed from both the top and the bottom." Making it worse is the feeling of being left behind in life as compared to your more successful peers. The solution lies partly in making adjustments to improve the situation and partly in making sensible financial choices so that you don't have to compromise on too many things to pay your debts back.
• Seek feedback and communicate. Knowing how you are doing will either make you feel good about yourself or help you set a goal to improve.
• Ask yourself where you want to focus your energies: on what's going well about work or on what's wrong with it?
• Strike a work-life balance. A lot of people are giving too much time and energy to work at the cost of other things in life, like spending quality time with family and friends or pursuing their interests. If you routinely do this, you are bound to start resenting your work. Learn to manage your time. Do not stretch a task so that it eats into things you want to or enjoy doing.
• Do not participate in gossip and stay clear of negative people. Practise positivity. It's powerful.
• Smile. It helps uplift yours and others mood. "Small things, as small as a smile from the manager, can go a long way in making an employee happy,"
• Be positive, resilient and disciplined, Strive to improve performance and take ownership of the job.
5 Secrets to Raising a Happy Child
- The research clearly shows that happy, optimistic children are the product of happy, optimistic homes, regardless of genetic makeup.
Here are 5 Secrets to Raise a Happy Child
The surest way to promote your child's lifelong emotional well-being is to help him feel connected -- to you, other family members, friends, neighbors, daycare providers, even to pets.
"A connected childhood is the key to happiness".
Nurture Your Happiness
While we can't control our children's happiness, we are responsible for our own. And because children absorb everything from us, our moods matter.
Happy parents are likely to have happy kids, while children of depressed parents suffer twice the average rate of depression.
Allow for Success and Failure
If you really want to bolster your child's self-esteem, focus less on compliments and more on providing her with ample opportunities to learn new skills.
Few skills are perfected on a first try. It's through practice that children achieve mastery. And through repeated experiences of mastery, they develop the can-do attitude that
lets them approach future challenges with the zest and optimism that are central to a happy life.
Practice Habitual Gratitude
one way to foster gratitude in children is to ask that each member of the family take time daily -- before or during a meal, for example -- to name aloud something he or she is thankful for.
The important thing is to make it a regular ritual. "This is one habit that will foster all kinds of positive emotions and bring lasting happiness."
Praise the Right Stuff
Praise the effort rather than the result. "Praise the creativity, the hard work, the persistence, that goes into achieving, more than the achievement itself.

- Children’s brains will reach 80 percent of their adult size by their third birthday.
- its imperative to motivate little ones to take up sports for their mental and physical well being.
Four words describe the most important activities for parents to consistently engage in with children: Touch, Talk, Read, Play.

Touch allows your baby to feel safe and loved and instills trust between the two of you.

As you begin to prepare your baby for pre-school, having skills developed through touching, talking, reading and playing will directly affect his or her social and academic performance

How can we develop curiosity among our children?
- When we around kids, do we ask them questions .Questions which can make them wonder and help them think critically. Parents like to tell kids things. In fact, they ask a child a question, and a nearby adult will answer for/to the child.
- It's better to ask kids questions about everything -- even when the original question came from them.
Child: "How do I draw a elephant?"
Parent: "That's a really great question
- ! Where do you think we should start? What's the first part of the elephant we should draw? Then what? Want to try it? We can always try again if we mess up."
- And if they get it wrong, don't stop them and say, "No, that's wrong. Do this." Let them make mistakes. And then ask them,
- Parent: "Uh oh! It looks like we did something wrong. Does any part of the elephant look wrong? How can we fix it? What should we do differently next time?"
- If you're having fun and it seems appropriate, you can even ask questions like
- Parent: "Great work! You put a lot of thought into your drawing, and it shows! But I wonder if that's the only way to draw a elephant. What do you think? Is that the only way? Or might there be other ways?"
- This gets them thinking -- and teaches them to test, iterate, and try again. It shows them that many problems have more than one solution.
- And, just as important, it teaches them to persevere when things don't go right the first time. It teaches them that it's okay to take a risk, and that it sometimes takes a few tries to get it right.
- dialogue based engagement can help perk up child's curiosity and improve their communication skills too.
