SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL FITRI & SALAM TO ALL
I am looking forward to share my personal and professional knowledge and experiences related to social-educational issues and challenges locally and internationally. I believe that much can be generated and learn cross culturally deriving from the varied diversity found in the education systems. Thus i welcome any thoughts, ideas, opinion and feedback on any educational issue which can contribute to both understanding theories and building educational implications. Issues can be very controversial but we have to address them open mindedly and creatively.My present interests are in child development, adolescent psychology,educational governance and policies and the science and art of teaching and research.Once again you are most welcome!!!!

HOW CHILDREN GROW UP NOWADAYS
Nowadays children tend to grow up with the TV and videos and the internet. I have seen that they can be in front of all these modern technological devices everyday every morning and if given permission at night too. Parents and helpers find these devices very useful to occupy themselves and their kids. We live in a world of ICT advancement and we thank ICT for making this society more knowledge based and we more knowledge conscious. Children gain new knowledge and improve their vocabulary .However research also shows that technology can have some negative side effects . Such as on the development of aggressive behavior. Seeing violent movies can make one violent too. This can apply to both children and adults.Why? According to the psychologist Bandura on social learning, we learn much by observation . When we watch for example the TV we may pay attention to what we see through our senses. After that process we register what we saw and try to reproduce or emulate what we see.Thus if there is too much time allocated to watching aggressive movies children will find it rewarding and approved. Of course playing computer games with very attractive and varied media feeds on the children's curiosity and amusement. However there must be some amount of human interactions in our daily lives. A friend told me everyone in the house is so focused in his/her notebook.As a result they forget their surroundings.Well parents can help monitor that there are stable routines to be followed and creative endeavors to be pursued. Children expect stability in the environment besides being curious and imaginative. Privileges must be balanced with responsibility , criticisms with praise
