Parenting 101: 7 Ways To Raise Eco-Friendly Children

Raising eco-friendly children has never become a necessity until today. With all the environmental issues we are facing, it is a must that we raise children to be more conscious about nature and the planet.

Although getting children to care about their surrounding may seem like a daunting task, it is highly doable. In fact, there are many simple ways to nurture the little ones’ interest in nature. Here are a few easy ways to help you in raising eco-friendly children:

Show them how to Save Water

Children learn by imitation and the best way to teach them to do something is by showing them. When you lecture them about saving water, show them how it is done. Show them how to save water by using a glass when brushing their teeth. You can also demonstrate the proper way of using the shower and saving water while taking a bath.

Adopt a Pet

Adopting a pet is an effective way to encourage empathy and responsibility in children. It is also a practical way to get them to care for nature. It might be a major decision for the family, but you can start by adopting a hamster or a rabbit. You can move on to adopting bigger pets, like a cat or a dog, when your child is older.

Education: “No Place Like Home” Philippine Homeschool Conventioin 2019

announcement, children, events, children learning, education, homeschooling, press release

“There is no school equal to a decent home, and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.” So goes a quote attributed to well-known nonviolence movement leader and Nobel Prize winner Mahatma Gandhi.

Indeed, truer words have never been said. After all, children first learn within the confines of their homes amidst loving parents and well-meaning caregivers. At home, children learn the basics of communicating, personal care, and proper conduct. It is within the safety of the home that they first learn about family, love, and security.

This is why we from Educating for Life or EFL want to gather together with our fellow homeschoolers as one community at the Philippine Homeschool Convention {PHC} 2019: to connect with and inspire one another to be the “teachers” and build the “schools” that Gandhi was talking about.

EFL, a group composed of four homeschooling moms, organizes events for homeschoolers and other individuals or groups that are into homeschooling and what we like to call “intentional education.” We have been organizing events for families ~ homeschoolers, in particular ~ since 2014.

This year, EFL, in partnership with Moneygment and SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, is pleased to present the No Place Like Home Philippine Homeschool Convention.

Believing that there is no place like home ~ especially when it comes to teaching our children—we invite our fellow parents to gather together at this year’s PHC so we can equip ourselves and bravely forge ahead in the difficult but extremely rewarding task of educating our children not just academically, but in other aspects too.

Character. Virtues. Life lessons. These are things that children don’t normally learn from textbooks and within classroom walls.

It is the essence of home, of family, of this virtuous calling of educating our children that we celebrate in the upcoming No Place Like Home: Philippine Homeschool Convention 2019.

To be held on 07 September, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City, this year’s convention will gather hundreds of Filipino parents and provide them with inspiration and encouragement to live out their calling as their children’s primary educators.

Children: Inclusive Education System

Children, education, children learning, learning
Nathan Dumlao

What is an inclusive education?

Inclusive education is all about educating children with special needs along with children without special needs. The aim of inclusive education is not to create any differentiation between general training and special education. In fact, they expect the schools to restore themselves and allow the special children in.

Now, people advocate that the children with special needs are welcomed into the school,and they create a set-up that respects them, nurtures them and empowers them in the long run. Therefore, if you have such a target group where you have children with diverse needs which is representative of a healthy population, then there is so much more than the school must gear up for.

It is important to remember that inclusion is not just being in there with the healthy children in a regular school. The children must not feel the idea of not belonging to that place. It is a massive responsibility that needs proper planning before starting it. Teaching works and instruction is essential. The training of teachers can help in making such projects successful.

Inclusive School System Requirements

The inclusive school requirements are very different from the normal one. The system needs to change each aspect of it to make it work. The two main elements that need immediate and utmost changes are:

  1. Concerning the inclusive school or college curriculum, you would require a lot of flexibility
  2. Regarding teaching methodologies and expertise on the part of the teachers, there is a need for proper training

What Does This New Ideology Trying To Promote?

Three main points are in focus of people who are trying to promote the inclusive education system. These are:

  1. It seeks to bring social cohesion
  2. It tries to create a more responsible and patient society
  3. It tries to undo the harm that is done to the people who are differently abled
