Man Murders Child For Not Doing Homework

In Education, India on July 27, 2013 at 08:12

A man is reported to have murdered his daughter, for not answering questions from her Home work.

This, while his wife and mother were watching TV .

The incident was reported to have taken place in Bangalore, on 25 July 2013.

In this case the motive is reported to be vendetta against the man’s first wife who committed suicide or murderer d by him couple of years ago.

In another case a child was murdered for not reading the Bible and was doing Home work.

Leave alone the vendetta angle.

This raises two questions.

Home work for children.

Children from Pre KG are given Home work, when the child cn not even understand concepts,.

The child which does not complete the Home work is humiliated in the class room by being made to sit separately or made to stand outside the class room, parents are called in and warned.

Home work for children beyond their age.

Home work for children.

What sort of system is this?

As it is parents, in their ambition to make their wards become a Money making machine have robbed children of their child hood.

Teachers too contribute this.

There is more to Life than scoring Rank in the school.

This is inhuman.

Secondly Religious fervor.

By reading Bible one does not become a Spiritual master.

Story:

 

A furious man killed his eight-year-old daughter with a rolling pin because she didn’t answer questions during homework.

The gruesome incident took place at Avalahalli, near Byatarayanapura, off Mysore Road, on Thursday night. Satyanarayan Singh, 43, a plastic utensils trader, told police that he was provoked into hitting his daughter Neha as she didn’t answer questions during revision.

Satyanarayan and his mother Padma Bai have been arrested. Police suspect Padma Bai bore a grudge against Neha and abetted him in the act. A Class II student of SGS School, Mysore Road, Neha was Satyanarayan’s daughter from his first wife, Asha Singh, who had committed suicide in 2006. Satyanarayan was acquitted in the dowry harassment and murder case of his wife. He married again and has a two-year-old daughter from his second wife. The family stayed in a rented house in II Cross, Avalahalli.”

 

samally: A Muslim man in Egypt killed hiswife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-yearold daughter. The girls were buried alive! He then reported tothe police that an uncle killed thekids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand -ALIVE! The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.. The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says:-’A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came everyday to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,’ she said. She was interviewed on Egyptian nationalTV, by availed Muslim woman news anchor. She said on publicTV, ‘This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!’ Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it’s clear also that He is alive! But, it’s also clear thatthe child could not make up astory like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hardtime to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of thePassion movie doesn’t help! With Egypt at the centre of the mediaand education in the Middle East ,you can be sure this story will spread. Christ is still turning theworld upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, ‘I will bless the person who puts his trust in me.’ Jeremiah 17….. Mark8:38 which says, ‘Thereforewhosoever shall be ashamed of Me and my Words in this adulterous and sinful generation,the Son of Man shall also beashamed of him when He comesin the glory of His Father with the holy angels.

Should You Correct Your Child’s Homework?

In Behavior, Education, Family on October 6, 2012 at 08:51

 

I find parents ,under the pretext of helping(/) children correct their Homework.This starts quite early.

 

The Child,naturally is frustrated.

 

My Daughter attempts to do the Homework for my Grandson; he either does exactly opposite to her instructions  or throws the Notebook away.

 

I support him-mind you he is 4!

 

True, I have seen most, Imay say, all parents do their ChildrenHome work, under the guise of helping them.

 

This becomes such a routine the child as it grows up asks its parent, especially the Mother to do the Homework.

 

And she does.

 

I recall that my father did not even know in which Class I was studying, though he was the Head Master of the School!

 

At times, while taking Classes, where I sit,he used to ask me whether I belonged to that Class!

 

As to my mother, well, what she was interested wa whether I ate properly.

 

Such was the Freedom parents gave us.

 

We did our Homework,though it was not as heavy as it is today and if we forgot, faced the Music!

 

I might add,to emphasize, despite this ‘inattention’ on the part of my parents, I came out District Second and School First.

 

In their anxiety parents resort to this Homework>

 

What they do is to de-motivate the child.

 

Unless one makes mistakes, one never learns, as in Life.

 

Schools have their own contribution to make.

 

They conduct Interviews for parents before admitting the Child to pre-KG!

 

If your parents are educated and give an undertaking that they will check the Child’s Homework daily, the child gets the admission!

 

Leave the Child be.

“Dear Mouthy Housewives,

My son just started 5th grade and I noticed that when I check his homework, he is making many more mistakes. Should I be correcting them? I feel like if I say “look at number 8 again” that signals to him that there’s a problem. Isn’t that like cheating?

Signed,
Mathy Mama

Dear Mathy,

You know I’m pretty sure that when we were kids this is one problem that our parents didn’t have. At least mine didn’t. Because if they ever looked at my attempts at math homework, they rolled their eyes and got me to a tutor, STAT.

Yes, in my day, we did our homework up the hill in the snow backwards and our parents stayed out of it. Because they had other things to do and “you’re a bit of a math moron, aren’t you, Marinka?” Sorry. Flashbacks.

But things are different today. We want our kids to succeed and for some reason that often means that we don’t want them to make mistakes. Even relatively harmless ones on their homework that don’t have life-altering consequences.

It’s not cheating so much as not allowing him to turn in his own work. Wait, what’s cheating again?

Ask yourself why you are checking your son’s homework. If it’s to make sure it’s getting done, that’s one thing. But if it’s to catch any errors before he hands in his work then I don’t think what you are doing is helpful. Because making mistakes is part of learning. And seeing those mistakes on the homework is one of the ways that the teacher knows your son isn’t understanding a concept. Or that he’s making a careless mistake. In either event, the teacher needs to know.
