We develop communication skills in many stages, through many kinds of experiences and interactions. As we grow, the ways that we communicate evolve and change. This begins almost as soon as a baby is born - and the main way young babies communicate is by crying. As your baby grows, her communication becomes easier to understand and she’ll move toward what interests her, using sounds, facial expressions and gestures along the way.
Myth or fact? Private schools are insular places only for the privileged. If that were true, US President Barack Obama, his sister Maya Soetoro-Ng and other notable alumni who won scholarships may not have had the opportunity to get a solid private school education. With help from education experts and industry leaders, we debunk the misconceptions about independent schools.
When choosing a school for your child, you might rely on your own school experience or even stories from your parents about what school used to be like. It would surprise many to learn school is very different today, and families have far more choice in how their children are educated than they did years ago.
You’ve just finished buying new school clothes and loaded up on all the supplies. Now it’s time to buy a backpack. When shopping for a backpack, function takes precedence over fashion. Comfort, support and size are very important factors that need to be considered when picking the right backpack. Just like kids in class, backpacks come in all different shapes and sizes. Avoid buying the biggest and cheapest backpack thinking you are getting a bargain. This purchasing strategy could actually be harmful to your child’s back.
