Impossible to forget!

    I agree with your statements , basically what we are, we are educators using the emotional side , we create strategies in order to teach , educate, causing them to grow up with values ​​and respect for others .
    This emotional side, we dont learn in the university , but its the life experience that teach us.The principles and values ​​that are transmitted in a child are very important , are our guiding guides to face life.
  • Great conversation! Thanks for sharing!
    I completely agree with you all. There is a bond that needs to be created when teaching or educating as teachers or parents. This bond is very relevant because it makes students and kids open their hearts. When someone is open to someone else he or she'll listen carefully, they'll try to understand each other, to learn in a more consistent manner.
    How do you create bonds with your kids? What strategies do you use to nurture the relationship?

    Normally, I am very rigorous with my students. I demand respect and hard working. I consider that, without effort and dedication, nothing is achieved. However, the act of teaching don't only involve knowledge transmission and rules. It goes much further.
    I also consider important to create emotional bonds with them. I still have no children. I don't know why, but I feel such a great affection for my students. I feel they really are part of my life. It is like if they were my own kids.
    I treat them with the greatest respect they deserve; I give them affection, when they need; I transmit them confidence; I praise them, when they do the things correctly; I realize when they aren't well and try to know the reasons for help them , if I can. This is because, I think that concerned students don't learn, so it is very important to be attentive to the signs that, unwittingly, they are conveying.
    For me, it is necessary to give something in return.
    Only in this way, they will be able to feel safety and confidence in us. After this bond was created, it is much easier to convey teachings and make them learn in a healthy and positive way.
