Why Holistic Education is Important to Every Child


Education has always played a huge role in molding everyone into better persons. As a parent, it is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your children. You need to ensure that they get proper education to be able to achieve their dreams and become successful in the future.



Holistic education is what every child needs these days. This type of education is one that helps them develop their whole self mind, body, and spirit. The holistic perspective also means supporting their entire well-being and that they can be taught in a more fun, exciting, and natural way. It prepares children to become well-rounded adults and at the same time to empower them. In addition, there are numerous schools that offer this kind of education nowadays, like the CBSE schools in Abu Dhabi that ensures quality education for all students. It is also used in countries like Singapore, Japan and India.

So, here are some reasons why holistic education is important to every child:

Holistic education prioritizes physical health and well-being
One of the best takeaways of holistic education is the improvement it brings to children’s health. It actually focuses on the activities that develop children’s physical well-being, such as exploring the outdoors, learning sounds and letters, and playing with friends. Also, when children are healthy and they eat proper food, they can easily learn.


Holistic education involves others
Once your children are enrolled in a holistic school, part of the curriculum would be extending children’s learning in a wider community, including family members and other people. Holistic education invites families to share stories, talk to people, as well as get to know other families and staff of the school. This way, your children can interact with more people and learning becomes a social activity then.


Holistic education integrates values
With holistic education, children are more exposed to important values in life. Their well-being is always considered in the learning process, so their confidence and other internal values are easily developed. They will eventually learn how to offer help, wait for their turn, and share with others. These might be simple values, but these got a high impact on every child’s life. Knowing that your children has these values will make you feel proud as a parent.
 
Holistic education teaches creativity
New ideas come from creativity. By being creative, you can have the power to gain new things and apply these through an innovative way. However, you won’t be able to become creative unless you are not open to other concepts. Through holistic education, children can hone their collaborative and creative skills in activities, including drama, music, visual arts, dance, and debate.
As the world continues to change, education also needs to keep up. Holistic education can be of great help in building children’s personality, character, and skills. So, if you want your children to get the best education, be sure to consider this holistic approach. You will be able to witness the positive impact and benefits of this type of education and you will never regret it. Your children will certainly grow as confident, skilled, and better individuals.

West Virginia : Wild and Wonderful with Videos

"Wherever you go, go with all your heart!" 

I lived in West Virginia for 12 years now but I still  have to see a lot of what it has to offer.  There are so many beautiful  cities and small places here WV  that I haven't  seen yet.  We always tend to  want to  travel somewhere else that  a lot of times, we don't even realized how much more we could do if we just  explore our own.  In this  post, I am sharing some videos of Wayne  Worth.  I like all his videos because you can really learn  a lot of history about  West Virginia.  He  visits every county of WV and  tell  about it on the videos.
I took these photos in one of our mini road trips along the  Ohio and West Virginia roads.  Ohio and West Virginia are side by side, only  a river is diving it so you can pretty much  travel  by boat (if you have one) to explore these two beautiful states.  

This part is on the Ohio side where you see the Steel Mill in Steubenville Ohio.
Seeing how the roads  were constructed always fascinates me.  You can see how much  work has been  put to it by blowing through mountains.  I have a high regard and admiration for  road construction workers, engineers and all the people involve in this kind of infrastructure  projects.  
Roads and  bridges are great infrastructures  that connects one place to another.
Even when we  we are  going to certain places in West Virginia, we have to  drive through the Ohio side because it is faster.  Just like when I took these photos, we were  heading to Wheeling on this but the shorter  way to  go there is  by traveling to Ohio side.
The Wheeling Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the main channel of the Ohio River at Wheeling, West Virginia. This bridge  was the largest suspension bridge in the world from 1849 until 1851.
Our children's favorite favorite part of crossing  the bridge is  tunnel  at the end of it.  It always reminds  them the fun we had traveling in South Korea where tunnels are everywhere.
Here are some of the videos I have mentioned about.

I am also sharing a collage of photos by Dennis Jones, a local photographer who makes our little city so beautiful in his captured photos.. I hope you enjoy them.

Fun Day in Beaver PA


On August 26, one of my husband's  co-worker invited us to their  home for a party.  They live  way out in Beaver PA.  We have never been  to this part of Pennsylvania so it was fun seeing a new place.  He lives in a big  piece of land so he has farm animals like goats, chicken,  and rabbits.  
We passed by this Beaver Valley First Energy Power Corp and I am always amazed of how big these things are.  Two weeks after our visit, my husband's buddy told him that few  workers at this site died due to an accident, it's so sad.  I believe Beaver Valley Nuclear is also near this vicinity.
The shipping port bridge is beautiful.  It reminds me of South Korea when we were crossing it.   We weren't going to go because most of the people  going to the party are all young and it was supposed to be just a "beer-kind of  party" but the kids wanted to see the   farm animals so we went.
We seldom see goats especially that we live in the city.  The only time we see   some is when we go to commercial farms or in the zoo so it was a treat for my kids to  interact with these Pygmy goats.
It's awesome that they were not  afraid to  interact with the kids.
They have silkies chicken which was a unique kind of chicken that I have ever seen.  I grew up in a farm but we've never had silkies, we only had the regular ones.
They also have so many regular chicken which my children was very fond of  feeding  grass.
My husband would sometime  comes home from work with trays of fresh eggs.  His buddy couldn't consume it all so he would always bring it at work and give it away.  
 I was glad that even though, most of the guests were young and they were doing the BBQ and  drinking, there were stuff to do for us and the kids.  They  set up a badminton  set and also have football.  It kept us busy plus the animals were  really a pure entertainment especially for the kids.
My son admires the farm "toys" that the homeowner have in his  property.  When we were looking for a house to buy, we contemplated on getting a farm house and we did  looked at some but the locations are way far out that we thought it would be hard for the kids to  go to school and have some friends so we stayed close to the city.
Living in the farm is  a pure pleasure for me personally but it's not for everybody.  My husband  have considered it but he have never lived in a farm so I thought it would be a big adjustment for him and the kids.  I had fond memories of  a farm life.  Raising  pigs, chicken, and carabao and working in a rice field was  sure a hard work but fun.
Anyway, we had a great time.  I will post the games we played while were there next time.  It was dark when we came home.  We felt so bad  that the homeowner  got  hurt  during the game that he had to go to the hospital but we thanked him for having us over.  We had a blast.

Labor Day at Tomlinson Run State Park

Our Labor day was mellow but we had so much  fun trekking.  We took our  kiddos  at Tomlinson Run State Park and they were excited because  it's been a while since we visited there.  Unexpected trips like this always makes  our kids say "You're the best parents ever!"
There is nothing much  to do  out there but simple things like  skipping rocks or  watching wild animals is a real treat for them.  You can however rent  a boat and  paddle  on the lake but  they are closed on the weekends and  holidays so we don't really have an option.  At this time of the year, most of the fish that  the park put in are all gone  so catching fish is not an option either besides we don't  have a license to fish.
They  brought their slippers  because they wanted to dip their feet in the  lake and  catch some crayfish.  They  always wants to do this every time we go there.  They catch  them and then release  them again before we leave.
I am so glad that there's not enough  geese poo in there.  There are times where you can't even walk around because the geese  just trash it with their waste but not this year.
We love to sit in the bench and  watch the  birds fly by.  It's a perfect family bonding.  We get to talk about everything the kids school, their friends, and just about anything that we can think of.

My camera's battery got drained but we took some photos with my cellphone.   The kids were so happy to see a group of turkey crossed the park.  I am still trying to convince my minion for us to  hike or do a long  trek in the park.  My son is on board but my daughter got traumatized when we  walked there one time and she was eaten by mosquito.  Even with  bug spray, she's still  get mosquito bites and it's not a good thing because she is allergic to mosquito bite.
