Follow a Plan to Educate Your Preschooler

Many government and university studies show that what happens during the first five years of a child’s life determines all that follows, including social behavior and academic performance in school, college, and later in life. A child whose educational foundation is laid properly during this early development phase has the best possible chance to succeed in school and in life. Parents therefore, cannot wait for the educational system to lay this foundation; it is too late when our children go to school – the preschool period has come and gone!Clearly then, it is our duty as parents to lay the right educational foundation during the early childhood development period; a truly daunting and forbidding responsibility. Many parents feel overwhelmed once they realize the enormity of the task. After all, it is a multi-faceted challenge that includes developing your child’s vocabulary, fine and large motor muscles, imagination and social skills, to name a few. Many parents respond with questions such as: How do I approach this task? Where do I start? Which resources are available, and where do I find them? Where is the “Preschool Mastery 101” class?For you to become your child’s kindergarten teacher, so to speak, you need a system that not only tells you what to do, but also provides tools and tips to help you succeed. You can think of such a system as having two parts: Part 1 that provides the framework to lay the right educational foundation by giving information about the following aspects:• The importance of actively developing children before they go to school.
• Identification of the most important areas to develop.
• Identification of and provision of strategies for each of the three most important learning styles.
• How to balance work and play by making learning a fun experience.
• How to stimulate a child’s imagination and develop the skill to “think outside the box”.
• How to help my child make friends so that he or she is not lonely and unhappy.
• Tools and Tips to help you develop a child’s vocabulary, imagination, math and motor muscles.
• How to plan your child’s development process with a step-by-step example.A Part 2 that provides the tools to help you succeed in laying your child’s educational foundation. For example:• Where and how to get educational material.
• Ways to develop your child’s math skills.
• Check lists to measure your child’s progress.
• A monthly planner, so that you can properly structure your child’s education.What can I do today?
Vocabulary is the single most important aspect on which to concentrate during the early childhood development phase. Is a well-developed vocabulary more important than math skills? Yes! It is because everything we learn, even math and music, is explained to us through words. Although we use symbols in math and music, we learned the meaning of those symbols through the spoken word. So, if your children do not fully understand what is being said, they will always be left behind!One of the best ways to develop your child’s vocabulary is to read them stories. Reading stories to your child, and talking about the story, benefits your child in many ways. It develops your child’s vocabulary, imagination, and is an opportunity to spend quality time with your child.Conclusion
Being willing to develop your child during the early childhood development phase is a great first step. Once parents understand their responsibilities, many parents start with enthusiasm, but then seem to lose their way. In most cases, it is because they don’t have a roadmap in the form of an education plan. To lay your child’s educational foundation successfully, get an educational system that shows you what to do. Then create a daily plan end stick to this plan!

Day Trading Tips – Tips Every Day Trader Should Know

What are the simplest day trading tips every trader should know?I once met a day trader who has been very successful in the markets, and I asked him if there were any golden rules I should apply to my trading.He told me that there were many rules, but I would not be able to apply them in practice, even if he told me.Finally I convinced him to let me in on some of his secrets, and he told me, but emphasised that it takes a lot of practice to be able to work with them.Here are the excellent tips on day trading that he gave me:1) Watch the trading calendar and never be in a trade ahead of a report.2) Never trade on FOMC meeting days.3) If a volatile day is expected, at least stay out of the market during the first hour.4) Find a trading mentor! No matter how well you think you can trade, the mentor will pinpoint your weaknesses and save you a lot of bad trades, while keeping the good ones going.And then I thought, that sounds good, but how do I use the trading calendar to predict volatility, and how do I find a mentor that knows all of this, and can answer my every question?After looking around and talking to many serious traders, I finally decided that I needed some education. I new what I wanted, and finally I found a great educator. Not only do they have a serious and very effective training program, but they also were able to answer so many of my difficult questions. Questions like how do I make sense of the trading calendar, how do I spot dumb money moves, how do I deal with conflicting indicators and many more questions.Getting educated helped me out a lot, even though I have moved on from their original trading strategy, as I have slightly changed their rules. I combine everything they taught me together with what I learned from others and the results are great.In fact, the rules mentioned above, are not to be used as hard and fast golden rules. For example I will now trade on FOMC meeting days, but I know that the early session trends to have 90% probability of fizzling out, in fact the whole day will be nothing but false moves.To a new trader, FOMC meeting days can be so intimidating. Imagine expecting a massive rally to take place, and buying big, only to find that it goes nowhere. Imagine how many unnecessary losses this trader will incur that day.Getting educated was my best choice ever, it was the best spent money in my life, and it has really paid off ever since! And it’s not just the money; they also saved me a lot of frustration. After attending the mentoring program, I can make a living trading the markets, just 4 days a week. Only 4 days a week! There are others who think, that they have to trade all day long and 7 days a week. And guess what, they give back most of their gains. They make less than they would in my 4 day trading strategy!

4 Advocacy Tips to Empower You, When Special Educators Try to Use an Unapproved IEP!

Are you the parent of a child with Autism receiving special education services from your school district? Have special educators in your district tried to change your child’s IEP services, without your approval? Are you frustrated and not sure whether it is even allowed and what to do about it? This article will give you information about why school districts cannot implement a child in special education’s IEP, without parental approval; and four advocacy tips to empower you as you overcome this roadblock!Several courts have ruled including the US Supreme Court; that school districts must seek a due process hearing if they want to implement an IEP, without a parent’s approval. For example: If your school district states that your child with Autism no longer needs special education services, and they are going to stop the services; they are required to file for a due process hearing. Unfortunately, you may have to be assertively persistent in your advocacy to make sure that school employees understand this.Advocacy Tips:1. If your school district develops an IEP at a meeting that you do not agree with; the next day send the school district a letter, explaining to them in detail why you disagree with the proposed IEP. Keep a copy for yourself, and hand deliver the letter to the school district.2. If your school does not file for a due process hearing (before implementation of the unapproved IEP), you may file for a due process hearing yourself, and ask for a “stay put” placement as well as services (from the last agreed upon IEP). You should also ask the hearing officer to change the burden of proof to the school district, since they refused to file, since most States place the burden on the party that files (only six states (CT, DE. NJ, NY, NV, and WV place the burden of proof always on the school district).3. If the school personnel do file due process so that they can implement an IEP that you do not agree with (or if you are ready to file to stop the school from implementing an unapproved IEP); make arrangements to take your child to a qualified evaluator for an independent educational evaluation (IEE). This will help you determine your child’s disabilities, or specifically what related and special education services your child needs. The evaluation report can be used at due process as your evidence that the schools proposed IEP will not provide your child an appropriate education.4. If your school district does try to implement an IEP that you do not believe will give your child an appropriate education, this may leave the school district vulnerable to be required to pay for a private placement or services. IDEA 2004 allows parents to seek private placement and services for lack of a free appropriate public education (FAPE); and then seek reimbursement. Finding a child ineligible for related and special education services has required many schools around the country, to bear the cost of the child’s private services and schooling.In the above example if educators states that your child with Autism is no longer eligible for special education services, you may be able to seek private services and/or placement, and then file due process for reimbursement of the private services cost.As a parent you need to assertively and persistently advocate for your child, so that he or she can be ready for post school learning and a productive adult life! Good luck!
