Presentation Description

Parenting is the ultimate long-term investment. We at Victorious Kidss Educares believe knowledge enhances and increases when we share the knowledge with someone. Who is this someone? This someone is not only our students or our parents or our teachers or other teachers from other schools. It includes and involves the entire human race on the earth. We would love to share all this knowledge and wisdom hidden, despite the effort and hardwork that have gone into preparing this presentation.

Parenting from the Heart BUT Keeping Technology in Mind:

Parenting from the Heart BUT Keeping Technology in Mind Parental Workshop – 23 rd July 2016

:

You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny. Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV. 4.5

Slide3:

What we want is Western Science coupled with Vedanta, Brahmacharya as the guiding motto, also Shraddha and faith in one's own Self.

Three Principles for Brilliant Success Harmony, Wealth and Happiness :

Three Principles for Brilliant Success Harmony, Wealth and Happiness I often have some sessions with our kids - Establish Truth in words, actions and thoughts. Have Faith in God and know that the Heavenly Father, Mother, Heavenly Friend, is our Beloved God and is always protecting us. Have faith in your own self and know that  ‘You Can’  handle anything. Everything is possible. BRILLIANT

The Seeds Of God Is Within Us:

The Seeds Of God Is Within Us Nature wants all of us to be successful When we make this journey of spirit, we water these divine seeds inside us. The good life merely reflects our inner intention. In time the flowers of God bloom within us and around us, and we begin to witness and know the miracle of divinity all around.

The Spiritual Dimension That Brings Inner Fulfilment:

The Spiritual Dimension That Brings Inner Fulfilment If the meaning of your life unfolds to you everyday, in simplicity and wonder, you have achieved success – which means in a profound way, that every baby/ every God created Human being; is a born ‘success’. Every child’s & once in a while; ours ability to feel wonder in the face of everyday existence is the surest proof we have ; that Nature wants us to be successful.

Keeping Spirituality Away From Our Lives Is A Mistake:

Keeping Spirituality Away From Our Lives Is A Mistake Keeping “Spirituality” away from our daily lives and away from success; has been a mistake and has profound effect… The parody is we spend years, from child hood on, on hard work so as to earn lots of money and have physical possessions. But loose our physical health and our emotional wellbeing and bliss and then spend the same money to get back our health?

Slide10:

Our rich heritage of thousands of years with Vedanta, Upanishad and ancient Gurukul teaching had made India the richest country in the world. India used to be called the Golden Bowl of the Universe. Wherever we are today, side by side, we need to stay abreast with the rapid changes of information and technical revolution, keep pace with the fast changing world of technology so that our children, once again, bring our country back to the ancient glory and create ‘a world filled with peace and harmony 10

Slide11:

We have training centers for management, how to be an engineer or a doctor, how to play or learn some musical instruments or play some games. Do we have a center to build Good Human Characters? 11

Most People Assume:

Most People Assume That success is essentially material. That it can be measured in money, prestige, or an abundance of possessions. These certainly can play a role; but having them does not guarantee of success. The success we want our children to achieve has to be defined in many non material ways as well.

It Should Include:

It Should Include The ability to love, be loyal and have compassion. The capacity to feel joy and spread it to others. Learning to give first and not take. The security of knowing that one’s life has a purpose, and there is a divine influence leading us towards a particular direction. A sense of connection to that creative power of the universe –”We belong to this Universe.”

Our Needs as Human Beings:

What Do We Teach Our Children?:

What Do We Teach Our Children? How to survive. How to behave in order to earn our approval. How to defend themselves. How to compete. How to persist against disappointment, obstacles and setbacks! Although believing in God is often considered a good thing, spirituality is……

The Teaching Of Innocence - SEVEN PRINCIPLES:

The Teaching Of Innocence - SEVEN PRINCIPLES Everything is possible If you want to get something, give it. When you make a choice, you change the future. Don’t say no, go with the flow. Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed. Enjoy the journey. You are here for a reason.

Slide75:

Our children should be guided to know that success comes in with an attitude, in ‘cans’ and not ‘can nots’. Children should grow up believing that they can handle anything if they only set their mind to it and think that they can 75
