In today s world- focused on earning more and more money, learning skills is getting cornered. Learning new skill will not only help to make our lives richer, but also help in overall development of kids. Who knows they may end up discovering their life goal.

Learning a new skill

What is a new skill?
A skill which is not acquired by our elders or siblings and has to be learnt from a teacher (person stranger to the child) outside the household.

There were/ are skills which were/are passed on from parents to children , that is inheritance. In these cases children find it easy to acquire the skills, as they are exposed to the learning right from their birth. Parents would have refined the methodology of learning the skill through the years. And children will have the advantage of learning from a person who is their caretaker, well wisher and intimate. The place they learn is home - familiar abode since their birth. Learning here will not be much difficult.

May the concept of GURUKULA ,to impart knowledge to children, was trying to replicate this home learning.

In today s modern world when we have to spend more time earning money, we are forced to send our children to classes, outside our household, to learn new skills.

First and foremost important aspect of these classes is TEACHER.
Teacher should be a person with noble virtues and an expertise in the skill.
He/ She must be having a
lovable personality,
best of intentions with respect to child,
ability to assess the capability of the child,
mastery over the skill,
aptitude to learn,
all are equal attitude.

Place of learning :
should be a spacious one(preferably under the sky amidst the nature)
clean and hygienic
quiet - away from the urban noise

SILENCE should be the dictum in the place of learning.
Teacher should be the only person speaking, when the process of learning is going on.

Good team of senior and junior members should be built.
senior members should take the responsibility of junior members, this will create a healthy atmosphere with respect,love and compassion. Discipline will not be a burden. learning will be fun and educative simultaneously.

To summarize learning new skills will expose kids to new aspects of their abilities, some may end up discovering their life goal. Definitely it will help them rich en their lives and for all round personality development.
