Parents Need to Listen to their Children – Crawford

Listening effectively, she said, nurtures trust and confidence between parent and child and builds stronger parent-child relationships. “Listening is one of the fundamental skills that parents need to learn.  A listening parent is an informed parent. By listening to children, you can gather information about what they know, how they feel about something, the things they like, the things they fear and what they think about you as a parent,” Ms. Crawford said. She was addressing a Think Tank Thursday (November 8) at the Jamaica Information Service’s (JIS) head office on Half-Way-Tree Road. Ms. Crawford informed that the Coalition has been working with the Ministry of Education and non-governmental organisations (NGO) to train parents, guardians and caregivers in better parenting and listening skills. The aim, she said, is “to move away from authoritarian childrearing attitudes to a more flexible approach to parenting”. These initiatives, she said, will continue during November, which is being observed as Parent Month, through a series of workshops in the Ministry of Education’s six regions, geared towards parents, caregivers and guardians. Parenting exhibitions will also be held across the regions. “Many parents will need help in adopting this concept of listening,” Ms. Crawford said. Parent Month is being observed under the theme: ‘Parent the Right Way: Start Listening to Your Child Today’, and activities getunderway with a national church service on Sunday (Nov.11) at the Ocho Rios Baptist Church on Milford Road, starting at 9:00 a.m.                                                                                                                                         Activities for the month will culminate with a Parenting Award Ceremony schedule for Friday, November 30 at the RIU hotel in Montego Bay starting at 10:00 a.m.last_img read more

Master artist gives master class

first_imgHerbie Hancock radiated coolness — from his hip, all-black attire, to his trademark, slightly tinted glasses, to his deep soulful voice, to his calm, measured delivery. And as unmistakable as his aura of cool was his sincerity.Both qualities and more were on display Friday (Feb. 29) in the junior common room in Kirkland House where the noted musician sat and talked about his career and his thoughts on music and life with about 50 students including members of the Harvard Jazz Band and other musicians.The event was part of a two-day celebration in conjunction with the 2008 Artist of the Year award bestowed on Hancock by the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations.Hancock was happy to share his insight with the group, many of whom arrived with instruments in tow. They came eager to perform for and with the celebrated composer and pianist in the august hall full of dark-wood-paneled walls briefly transformed into a mini-music studio full of vibrant jazz riffs.The artist, who studied music and electrical engineering at Grinnell College in Iowa, alluded to the years he spent as a member of the Miles Davis Quintet in the ’60s, and some of the lessons the great trumpeter taught him.“One of the first things I learned from Miles was the value of listening. That’s not solely applicable to music, is it?” he asked the group.Listening, Hancock continued, “shows your respect for other people.”Hancock, who took up the piano at age 7 and by 11 was performing a Mozart piano concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, first sat and listened as members of the group of students performed for him. His head kept time with the music and he was the first to clap his appreciation as the students took turns with brief solos.Later he joined in on the piano in a jam session where he gave each performer the spotlight before he took the lead with a short display of his inspiring talent.He counseled the young players to explore their own musical style and creativity.“You have to develop your own personality,” he said, “that transcends the instrument. … It’s all about being in the moment, compassion, caring, passion for excellence, and having the courage to explore.”last_img read more

Club chiefs never hide ‘obsession’ to sign Watford player, name ‘underlined…

first_imgThe forward spent six months on loan at the San Siro in 2017, when he was at Everton.In the winter market, the Serie A club were reportedly interested in re-signing the former Barcelona man, but the deal didn’t take shape and the Spaniard will be at Vicarage Road at least until the end of the season.A ‘confidential’ report from Thursday’s edition of Sport claims the Italian outfit ‘will go for’ the 24-year-old in the summer as the Rossoneri board of directors have never hidden their ‘obsession’ to bring the player back to the club.Deulofeu’s contract with Watford is until 2023 and his name is ‘underlined in red’ in the list of summer targets for Milan.After failing to land their target in January, Gennaro Gattuso’s side have contacted the Hornets to ask about Deulofeu’s price. It’s clear that Milan will make an approach for him in the summer, unless the fee demanded by Javi Gracia’s side is exorbitant.The Spaniard already indicated that he is open to the idea of joining Milan and if the fee quoted by Watford is convenient, then Deulofeu could return to the Serie A in the summer. It is also important to note that Sport does mention the attacker is happy with his current employer and shares a good relationship with Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

Chelsea’s Carlo Ancelotti hails Nicolas Anelka display

first_imgChelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti felt striker Nicolas Anelka was the key to his side’s 4-1 win over MSK Zilina in their Champions League group game.Anelka set up Michael Essien for the opener before scoring twice himself.“The key was Anelka, he had a fantastic game. He created space, had chances and was the key,” said Ancelotti.“He can play the position in front, sometimes we use him more wide, sometimes in the middle but he shows the same skills if he plays wide.”Daniel Sturridge scored Chelsea’s fourth goal, while goalkeeper Petr Cech’s error helped Zilina grab a consolation goal through Tomas Oravec.“I think that Petr could do better with the goal we conceded but we faced a lot of crosses,” added the Blues boss. “I am happy Sturridge scored, but he has to improve his positioning, I would like him to play more infield rather than out wide.“He showed fantastic movement to score, I am happy with his performance.”Chelsea came under pressure late on when the game was won, but Ancelotti was unconcerned after his side took their goal tally to 21 from five games.“Every game in the Champions League is hard to play,” said the Italian. “We started very well in the first half, we played fantastic football but the second half was different.“Zilina put more pressure on our defence. The back four did a good match. When you are 3-0 up it’s normal to have more difficulty. “I hope to watch my team play a fantastic game for 90 minutes. Obviously, I was a player so I know sometimes there are difficult times, the opponent can come back in the game.“If I have to judge the performance I am very happy because it’s not easy to win 4-1 away in the Champions League.”Zilina coach Pavel Hapel believes the match would have been closer had his side shown a more ruthless edge in front of goal.“I am not disappointed with the game,” said Hapel. “We played well and attacked Chelsea. We managed to score so it was OK.“We kept up with Chelsea as much as we could but I am disappointed with the productivity. The score was a surprise. “We didn’t show the same productivity in front of goal as Chelsea did.”Source: BBClast_img read more
