Teaching Conflicts!

Do you have any conflict with Grand Parents/ Spouse on how to teach your child who is going through open learning/unschooling/homeschooling
 
Here are some thoughts –
Situation – One child 7yrs old, Grand father wants her to learn Kannada language and believe that this is the age to learn language, absorption is high and this is the time to learn. The child is not showing interest, there is expectation from mother that the child gets RIGHT inputs (education) at the right time (now).

Three days with a chef - Shaunak

Three wonderful days with Shaunak, a chef, an entrepreneur and restaurateur at the campus was full of action and compassion.

Cooking our own pasta, Thai curry and Italian thin crust pizza were just not some dishes - but a lot more interaction on food, each ingredient, each cooking step. Each food was created from scratch, kneading, rolling and boiling our own pasta, making own pizza base, soup broth with vegetable peels ... enough to bring lot of exploration and connection with food in our kitchen.

Manthan - Empower!

Manthan, brought an opportunity to come together and explore – empowerment, various elements of Aarohi and share/express concerns, feedback and involvement.

Empower means “I have power in me – to decide, to act, to response, to decide and so on”. In our day to day life we come across these situations –  Self Doubt – Will I be able to do? Confusion – How yo do?Apprehensions – WIll it be good?

Family week - coming together

It takes a village to raise a child is a proverb which means that it takes an entire community of different people interacting with children in order for children to experience and grow in a safe environment. (Ref – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_takes_a_village)

Family week at Aarohi is an attempt to get exposure to different practice from different lives, cultures and home environments. Different ages, different culture, different skills… time together, live together and we grow together!
