A Cursed House

Once upon a time, in a small house in the forest, there was a couple living with their two daughters, Nami and Angela. The older sister Nami was very lazy and spent all day hanging out. Angela was very hard-working and cared about everyone.

One day, the father went to the forest to cut firewood. He told his wife and children," I'll go cut firewood now. Please prepare a delicious meal and bring it to the forest for me."

Mother said, “I’ll ask Nami to bring lunch to you."

Father said, “The path there is confusing. I will spread the peas along the way so she can find me."

At noon, Nami brought rice to the forest for her father. Along the way she saw a lot of peas that her father had left. She thought she could found her father easily with peas that were spread on the way.

So she decided to walk slowly and enjoy the forest. Nami wandered around and had a lot of fun. She was distracted by the beauty of the forest, so she forgot her job. She didn't even realize that the birds ate all of the peas.

It was dark and she couldn't found the peas that her father had left. Nami tried to find her way in the dark. She followed a glimmer of light and found a small house in the middle of the forest. She approached and knocked on the door, and then she heard a voice, "Come in!”

Nami walked in the house and saw an old man sitting next to the fire. There were also three animals, a dog, a rooster and a hen.

The old man asked, “Who are you? Why are you wandering through the forest?”

Nami said, “Sir, I was lost on the way to bring lunch to my father. Could you please allow me to stay for a night?”

The old man asked his pets whether he should allow Nami to stay a night in this house or not. The pets shook their heads in favor of Nami.

The old man said to Nami, “We will let you sleep here for one night. There is a lot of food in the kitchen, please go and cook dinner for all of us!"

Nami was very happy. She went to the kitchen and saw a lot of food there. But she was lazy; Nami only cooked a small pot of soup. Nami brought the soup to the living room to eat with old man .But she forgot to cook for the animals, leaving them hungry. They were all very sad about the girl's carelessness.

After having the soup. She said to old man, “Sir, I'm tired now, I just want to go to sleep. Please show me where the bedroom is."

Old man said, “There are two bedrooms here. Please go clean them up and make the bed for me as well, I'll come late.” Nami obeyed the old man, she went upstairs. There were two rooms. She went into one of that room and cleaned a bed for herself. She was lazy; she didn't clean the bed for the old man. She just lay down and slept without making the bed for the old man.

By the time the old man went into his room, he found the bed still dusty and messy. He sighs and said to himself, “well, this is not the girl that I'm looking for! She is very lazy and disrespectful."

The old man snapped his fingers. Suddenly the bed, where Nami was sleeping, split into two pieces. She fell down and disappeared, and then the bed returned to normal.

Later the day, when the woodcutter returned home, he complained to his wife, “I have been starving all day today."

Wife said, “I told Nami to bring food to you. She must have wandered around and went to his aunt house. This careless girl!”

Father said, “Tomorrow, I will go the forest again. Tell Angela to bring food to me."

The next day, Angela went to the forest to bring food to her father. Unlike her sister Nami, she followed her father's path very carefully. She reached her father in half an hour. The father was very happy to see her daughter, Angela. 

Angela said, “Hello! Father, mother had cooked a very delicious meal for you. Now, I must leave, It's already getting dark."

Father said, “Yes, You should leave and thank you for this meal."

After saying goodbye to her father she started walking back to her house. But, the birds had eaten all the peas in the way. It was very difficult for her to find her way back home. She was lost and it was dark everywhere around.

Angela followed a glimmer of light. She found a small house in the middle of the forest. She approached and knocked on the door.

She said, “Is there anyone here?”

She listened a voice, “Come in!”

Angela went inside, and she saw the old man sitting in front of the fire with three pets.

The Old man said, “Who are you? Why are you lost here?"

She said," Sir, my name is Angela. I was coming back home after giving lunch to my father, and I got lost. Could you please allow me to sleep here for one night?”

As usual, the old man asked the three animals beside him.

He said, " Hey hen, rooster and dog, what do you think?”

They said," Master, we are fine with that!”

The old man said, “We will let you sleep here for one night. There is a lot of food in the kitchen, please go and cook dinner for all of us!”

Angela obeyed him and went to the kitchen. She saw lots of good ingredients there. She decided to cook some delicious dishes to thank old man and for the pets for letting her stay. Then, Angela cooked a lot of delicious dishes. The old man and the animals were very hungry just by the smell. Angela invited the old man to enjoy the meal first and then went to feed the three animals. They happily thanked her. After that, she sat down to eat with the old man.

Once every one had finished eating, Angela suggested, "We have finished the meal. Shall we get some rest now?”

The old man said to his pets, "Hey hen, rooster and dog, what do you think?"

They said, “She treats us very well. Thank you very much! Have a goodnight!”

The old man said to Angela, “There are two bedrooms in the house. Please go clean up and make the bed for me as well. I'll be right up".

Angela obeyed the old man. She carefully cleaned up and made the bed in both bedrooms. After the old man went to bed, she went back her room to sleep. That night she slept very well.

The next morning, she woke up early. Angela was very surprised to find herself in a luxurious and beautiful room. Suddenly, three servants entered the room. They politely asked her, “You are awake madam. Do you need anything?”

She was still surprised, she said, “No, I have to get up to make breakfast for the old man and three friendly animals.

The servants said, “You don't have to do anything anymore, mam. Our master is waiting for you, Ma'am".

Following the servants instructions, Angela went into a room. She was surprised to see a young handsome man waiting for her.

That man said to Angela, “I am Prince Garry, the owner of this castle. I was cursed by a witch so I became very old. The castle also turned into a small house and my three loyal servants turned into pets. The witch had said only a caring and responsible girl can lift this curse. So, I thank you for helping me."

Angela was very happy after listening this. The prince then said, “When the castle was cursed, there came a girl named Nami, who was lost in the forest. She was lazy and irresponsible."

Angela at once said, “She is my sister. Where is she, now?”

Prince said, “Don’t worry. Your sister is fast asleep in the room. My servant will go wake her up."

Then prince asked Angela that If she would marry him. Angela accepted the proposal of the prince. They welcomed Angela's parents in the castle and held a grand wedding in the castle.

MORAL LESSON

We should be responsible.
We should take care of the people around us.
We should be kind and respectful.

A Grateful Prince
A Grateful Prince
Forests are enchanting, peaceful places. With stories and creatures with deep and dark secrets. At the center of one such forest, a king had strayed from his usual path. Wandering the forest, he was worried he would never find his way out. Just then, he came upon a strange looking man. His back was bent, he held a stick to stand and his beard went all the way to the ground. That old man said, “Who are you? What are you doing here in my forest? Are you lost peasant? " The king replied, “I am not peasant. I am the king of these lands. These forests are mine, but I am lost. Can you help me?" Old man said, “Ash, you are the king. How very good for you. Well, my king. This forest is mine and only I know the path out of here. I can show you the way if you like. But I would want something in return." The king surprised by the old man's behavior, but he needed to return home. He needed to be with his wife and his newborn child.King said, “What would you want in return?" Old man said, '' You must promise me that when I make sure you reach the gates of your kingdom, whatever walks out of it first, you will give me that in return. I will give you one day. You must promise that it will be mined forever." The King thought himself. But then he knew that he had been wandering for too long, everyone would be worried about him. He made up his mind. He shook the hand of the old man, agreeing to his deal. Following the hunched old man through the forest, the king was at times amused and surprised by the old man's speed and flexibility. Almost he would lead the king through lakes and tiny spaces, but somehow moving forward. At the end, the old man stayed true to his word. Finally, making him sure the king found his way home. He said," Remember your promise, my king." The king was greeted with flowers and screams. The people were ecstatic to see him in one piece. But one person was crying in joy, His Queen. Before the King, could say anything. She rushed towards him with their first born son in her arms. And crosses the gate. She handed over the son to king so he could see him. Now the son became the first thing to cross the gate and meet the king. As the Old man saw the child, he smiled. The king turned around and looked at him as he walked into the forest. Now the king was worried. When the King was in his room looking out of the window, the Queen asked, “My king, you look worried. What is it? Tell me what is troubling you? Are you not happy to be home? " The king said," No, that is not true. I am overjoyed to be home. But I have made a grave mistake my dear." The king told his Queen everything. Every little detail that she was unaware of. The Queen was shocked by the story and they both wondered what they would do know.  The king had an idea. The king called upon his minister and asked if there were any children born the same day as his son. The minister confirmed that a little girl was burned to a peasant couple on the same night as the prince. The king summoned the couple and their baby to his chambers. The king spoke to the peasant, explaining everything. Knowing it would be a difficult decision for him to make. He asked for the peasant's newborn daughter to take his son's place with the old man. The King promised to take care of the peasant couple forever, if they would make their sacrifice. The couple handed their child to the king. They were very sad. The next morning, the old man stood at the edge of the forest. Waiting for the king to arrive. Sometime had passed and then, the gates opened. The King strode on his horse towards the old man, looking angrily at him. He got off his high horse and in small basket, covered in white cloth. He delivered the crying, little baby to the old man. The Old man had an evil smile, but pleased he had gotten what he wanted. Clutching the basket, he limped into the forest and took away the baby girl. Years later, the prince had grown. He was kind, smart, grateful and helpful to everyone around him. He was pleased to see the kingdom his father had built in good shape. The people were happy; they had food to eat and livelihood to keep them going. One day, the prince was walking happily through the streets, at a distance peasant's wife starred at him. She looked at her husband, who shook his head. But as he turned around, her wife ran to the prince. Standing in front of him, blocking his way. She said, '' You don't know me, my prince. But I must say this to you. Yes, the king is good man. He has taken care of his kingdom. But at what cost? At yours? Or at ours? Ask him about my child." The prince was worried; he did not know about what the woman was talking about. At the dinner table that night, the prince asked his parents about what had happened. The king revealed everything about the journey into the forest, about the old man. A promise and the sacrifice for the glory of the kingdom. After listening his father, prince said, “I must find her. It is only because of her sacrifices, that I stand here today. I cannot be a prince or a king, until she is free. I will either bring her back or take her place." King said, " You must do what you think is right." Then, the next morning, the prince got ready for the journey. Taking with him a box of beds. So that he was to get lost in the forest, he could find his way home. After meeting his parents, he went to that peasant's house. He said to them, “I am very grateful to you that you sacrificed for me and the kingdom. I am going in the forest to save your daughter."   Listening this peasant couple became very happy and prayed for his success and health. So once again, just like his father, the prince wandered into the unending forest. The prince wandered around for a day. One day, he listened the voice of Lion roaring in pain. When he went closer to the lion he saw that the lion was lying. Some kind of thorn was stuck in his paw. First, he was scared then he decided to help him. He took out that thorn from his paw. Now the lion was in some relieve from pain. But his paw was still bleeding. So, he bandaged it. Then suddenly, that lion changed into an old man. The prince was shocked and surprised. The Old man said, “Don’t be afraid from me. I am a wizard. I had transformed myself into Lion, but that thorn stuck in my foot and I can't use my magic spell to help myself. Thank you for helping me. Tell me what do you want from me?" The prince at once recognized that old man. He was same as described by his father. The prince said, “So, you are the wizard. You will give me whatever I'll demand from you?" Old man said, “Yes, I will. You owned my life.'' The prince said, " Then give me that child who you had taken from the king years ago." The old man was surprised. He said," How do you know?" The prince said, ' My father had told me." Now what the wizard could do. He had a promise with prince. So he gave the daughter of that peasant back. And was disappeared in the forest. The prince along with that peasant's daughter came back home safely by following the seeds that prince had thrown on his way. The peasant couple was very happy as they got their daughter back. The King was happy that his son had done a very good work. Now they all lived happily ever after. MORAL LESSON We should be grateful.We should be kind to others.We should sacrifice our wealth or even our lives for the protection of our country.
How to Help Your Children Learn to Count and Recognize Numbers
How to Help Your Children Learn to Count and Recognize Numbers
Will you teach your child how to count and remember numbers? These simple tips can help you get started if that's the case. Some are good for kids of all ages, while others are only good for kids of a certain age. Using Cards It looks great and is easy to make. You'll need some construction paper or cardstock, some pictures (I used carrots), and scissors to make your counting cards. Put your baby on the floor and show him number one. "That's one," you say. One carrot only. What is the number of carrots? Tell your child to say "One" over and over again. You should make a point. Don't worry if your child stops caring after just one card. Since you can only teach one number at a time, you're already doing well. Small children, especially boys, can't pay attention for long. Don't try to force it. I'd do it again the next day, and if he kept sitting, I'd move on to number 2. You can stop here if your child can sit still through number three. Before adding more, make sure he can count up to three pictures on the cards. "Where is it?" asked the person. He should be able to show you the card with the number one on it. What will happen to both of them? He should be able to say at least two things that show this. Once he knows which card goes with which number, you can move on to the next step. Keep doing it this way until he can count the pictures independently. Over time, he will learn to sit still for long stretches, especially if you make it fun. Number Puzzles Puzzles are fantastic. A dollar store is where it was bought. Please sit down and work on the puzzle with your child to teach him something. Tell him the name of each number he is returning. Tell him to say them again. Use the numbers to play by giving them goofy voices and interacting with your child via them. (Deep voice) Hello, my name is Six! My belly is pretty big. What are you called? He'll like it if you do silly things. Bears and Chips in Your Pocket I think I bought these from Walmart. Your child can learn to count in a fun way with them. Everything you already have in your home can be used. Put them near your child, so you can help him count them. Start with a small dose and then up it as he gets better. Number-Based Toys There was a yard sale where you could buy these. I like to tell my child the name of the number and a little bit about it in a funny voice. Then I'll show them to my child and ask him to pick a few. Flashcards Fun flashcards always have a number on one side and a picture on the other. I like showing my kid the number and explaining what it means before flipping the card over and having him count how many items are on the other side. For them, it's always fun to see what picture is on the back. After a few numbers, ask your kids to point to certain numbers. "All right, where are the three?" has the little one pointed to the third one. Excellent work! So that makes all three! What will happen to both of them? A child doesn't choose the right card. Uh-oh! You're getting close! Where did the other two go? If he can't find it, help him. Then heap praise on them! Books Children can learn a lot from number books and books that help them count. Children like to look at books and might not even realize they are learning simultaneously. The books I write are in Spanish. But these two are just as good, and you can read them in English. Dotted Patterns Making these kinds of cards is easy for a game about finding dot patterns. First, lay out the card with the number one, the card with the matching dot pattern, the card with the number two, and the card with the matching dot pattern. Tell your child to match the composite cards with the dot pattern cards that go with them. After he learns how to match, give him more cards to match. Help him count the dots on the dot trend cards and figure out what number goes with each one.   Counting Cookie Smart Snacks We like this toy. Playing with all of these with your child is a great way to help them learn to remember and count. Make believe you're hungry and want some cookies. Your child says, "I'm very hungry!" Let me eat number two, please. Act as if you're going to eat the cookie your child gives you. If your child gives you the wrong cookie, act upset, like you want to cry, and ask again for number two. When you act so dramatically, kids often find it funny. Education-related placemats These are inexpensively priced at Walmart. Eating can be a teaching experience if you approach it with the right attitude. Even your little kid can figure out how much to eat. You could also ask how many he wants. Another fun way to sneak in a lesson is to use numbers and count while kids eat snacks. Flooring Tiles I found several of them at a yard sale for a very low price, but you can also buy them on Amazon and at Toys R Us. I like to set them up by number in a hopscotch pattern. Then I play hopscotch with the kids and say the numbers I land on. Tell your child to do what you are doing. You can also tell them to jump when you call out certain numbers.

How to Improve Your Child's Ability to Communicate and Interact with Others
Children begin to learn certain sounds immediately after birth. They will cry, coo, and gurgle until they are around one year old when they will likely pronounce their first word. As your infant becomes a toddler, you will have a great deal of work to help them learn the language and get along with others. Toddlers are adept at observing and mimicking what they see, so you must be mindful of your speech and movement. To assist your toddler in reaching developmental milestones, you must first recognize that every kid develops and learns at a different rate. When your child is ready to start talking, the following will help them acquire new words and interact with others: Encourage infants to play Most toddlers are naturally playful, which is beneficial since it is the greatest method for them to develop, learn, and discover the world. You have more opportunities to chat and listen when your kid plays more. You'll be astonished by how fast they learn if you continue to converse with them and have fun while repeating words. For a game to be effective, your child must communicate and engage with other children. If you play with your kid often while they are small, they are likely to use humorous language by age three. Keep in mind that it might be difficult for toddlers to attempt to communicate with you but not be able to do so. Instead of sometimes correcting them, try encouraging them. Adequate Television Involvement You may show your infant television images and noises as a means of communication. Unless your infant is playing with you or engaging in conversation, it is best not to allow them to watch television. Ensure your youngster watches no more than one to two hours of television daily. Otherwise, they may become couch potatoes. Also, monitor what your child views on television since it may form their personality. In this digital era, when practically every parent has a TV and internet subscription, the only thing you can do for your kid is choosing age-appropriate entertainment. If your kid is exposed to unhelpful or cruel information, it might make them more aggressive and hinder their ability to get along with others. Thanks to the Internet, you can choose which programs your youngster should watch. Your youngster may also see various stuff on social networking sites. It is safer than allowing kids to view stuff you cannot control. Dialog with your youngster When your young child speaks to you, you should not repeat what they say. Instead, communicate with them as if they were adults. It may sound odd, but it gives your youngster more words to learn, enhancing their vocabulary. When you get home from work, give your child a warm embrace and inquire about their day. Then describe your day to them. There will undoubtedly be some back-and-forth, but you can be assured that someone is listening. If you do not communicate with your kid, you may see them leading a monotonous, lonely existence, which might damage other crucial phases of their growth. They will have little to say because they hear little. It will help if you read aloud to them No of the age of your kid, you should spend a great deal of time reading to them. As kids mature, they go from basic tales to more complex ones. The time they spend together will teach them how to get along with others, and the noises you make while reading will be remembered. Picture books are wonderful for young children since they are colorful and entertaining. They will keep your youngster engaged and assist them in learning a large number of new words. If a youngster read a book daily, their vocabulary will increase by up to 1,400,000 words compared to those who do not. Purchase Animal Toys Plastic or wooden animal toys may be bought at baby shops. The toys are entertaining and inspire your youngster to play in novel ways. You may even use sign language to assist your infant in learning new words. Teaching your child the names and sounds of many animals is enjoyable. They will likely pay attention if you shout out the name and sound of each animal toy. Repeat until your youngster can identify the creatures alone. Children Must Acquire Valuable Social Skills With strong social skills, children can get along with their classmates. Your kid cannot acquire all these talents at once, so be patient and assist them while they develop in other areas. You should not expect your youngster to possess or fast acquire these talents. It will need time and effort to reach the goal. A Montessori daycare is another setting where these skills may be learned.   How Empathy Allows Young Children to Develop Social Skills Every parent must assist their kid in building habits early in life. Understanding and caring about other people's experiences is empathy. Helping your toddler develop empathy will provide them with a solid foundation for the social and emotional abilities they will need for life. You must demonstrate concern for others to educate your kid to care for others. The more you repeat these actions, the more probable your child will remember them. Instead of penalizing your child if they bully other children, try to comprehend how the other children feel. If your kid has difficult periods of frustration and fury, do not attempt to solve the situation to save them the suffering. Even if you cause somebody to feel awful, it is essential to recognize their suffering and express your concern. Your youngster will know that these occurrences are common and that they should care when they occur to others. Findings To assist your child in acquiring more vocabulary and communicating with people, you must expose them to the outside world. Many parents commit the error of keeping their children too isolated from others. Your youngster should encounter as many individuals as possible in a secure setting. It helps kids learn rapidly and develop the social skills necessary.

Wheels on the Bus Song Lyrics
"The Wheels on the Bus" is a traditional American folk song that has been a staple in early childhood education for decades. Its origins, like many folk songs, are somewhat murky, but its repetitive and interactive nature has made it a favorite among children and educators alike. The song is believed to have been written in the United States in the mid-20th century. Its tune is based on a traditional British song called "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, " which has a similar repetitive structure and melody. The transformation from a song about a mulberry bush to one about a bus is a testament to the adaptability of folk music to modern contexts. "The Wheels on the Bus" is not just a song; it's also an activity. As children sing about the bus's wheels going "round and round" or the wipers going "swish swish swish, " they often mimic the actions with hand movements or full-body motions, turning the song into a lively participatory experience. Over the years, the song has been adapted and expanded upon, with countless verses being added to describe various actions on the bus, from the horn honking to the children chatting. Its universal theme of a bus journey and its catchy, repetitive melody have made "The Wheels on the Bus" a beloved song in many countries, transcending cultural and linguistic barriers. In summary, "The Wheels on the Bus" is a relatively modern addition to the canon of traditional children's songs, but its widespread popularity and adaptability have ensured its place as a timeless classic in children's music.

How to Prepare Your Child for a Whole New School
If you're like most parents, you probably dread the thought of sending your child to a new school. But if you do it right, it can be an exciting and educational experience. There are a few things you can do to make the transition as smooth as possible for your child. In this blog post, we'll go over some essential steps you need to take to make the change go as smoothly as possible. From organizing your child's belongings to setting up a routine, read on to learn everything you need to know to prepare your child for their new school year. Setting up a new school environment for your child When your child is ready to start a new school year, there are a few things you can do to help make the transition as smooth as possible. You can get some margin to set up an agreeable school climate for your kid. Here are some suggestions for doing so: 1. Organize Your Child's Files One of the first steps in preparing your child for a new school year is organizing their files. This will help them feel more at ease and less overwhelmed by all the latest information and paperwork. Having everything in one place allows your child to access what they need when needed, rather than searching through folders scattered around the house. 2. Provide Appropriate Advanced Learning Materials If your child has been doing well in their previous schools, don't hesitate to provide them with advanced learning materials such as high-level math or vocabulary textbooks. However, discuss these materials with your teacher beforehand so they understand how much your child should be expected to cover in each class period. Additionally, it's always helpful to have cheat sheets or flashcards available so your child can review material during break periods or on their own time outside class. 3. Encourage Your Child's Interests and Talents One of the best ways to prepare your child for a new school year is by encouraging their interests and talents. Helping your child adjust to their new school When your child begins their first day of school, there is an adjustment period for both the child and the parent. To help your child adjust, be sure to follow these tips: 1. Be supportive. Let your child know you are here for them as they make new friends and start a new routine. Talk with them about what they are experiencing and let them know it will all pass in time. 2. Do not hover. Helping your child feel like they can ask for help when needed is key to allowing them to adjust to their new environment. However, avoid approaching or being overbearing; let them take the lead in initiating conversations about their school life. 3. Make an effort to get involved in extracurricular activities and clubs at school. This will give your child a sense of community and support while also allowing you to learn more about what interests your child and which clubs might be a good fit for them. 4. Set expectations early on. Please discuss with your child what academic performance is expected of them in their new setting, and be clear about any rules or regulations that apply at school (e.g., no eating or drinking outside designated areas during lunchtime). Also, clarify homework expectations so there are no surprises later in the year. Introducing your child to their new classmates Welcome to your new school! For both you and your child, this is a time of transition and excitement. There are many new people and things to learn, but everything can go smoothly with some preparation. To ensure a smooth transition, here are some suggestions: 1) Talk with your child about their new classmates. Let them know who they are, what they like to do, and what kind of personality they might expect. This will help them get to know their classmates before school starts. 2) Structured introductions will help everyone feel comfortable around each other. Have your child introduce themselves to their new friends in advance and make sure they stay on schedule. This way, there's more clarity during the first few days of school. 3) Allow plenty of time for homework assignments and socializing after school. Make it a priority for both parents to be involved in their child's education so that they have a positive experience at the new school. Showing your child how to get along with others It's time for your child to start school again. Whether they are beginning in a new grade or moving to a new school, you can do a few things to help them get ready. One important thing is to show your child how to get along with others. Here are some tips: 1. Teach your child how to say "no." One of the essential skills your child will need when starting school is saying no. This means that they will have to learn when and how to refuse requests from their classmates. Ensure they understand that sometimes it is impossible or not desirable to do what someone wants them to do. For example, if a classmate asks your child to lend them their pencil, tell them they can't because they don't have any. If this doesn't work, try saying something like, "I'm sorry, but I can't lend you my pencil right now because I'm not done with it." 2. Help your child build relationships with others. Building relationships is one of the best ways for your child to get along with others. When children spend time getting to know people, they become much more likely to cooperate and get along with those around them. To help your child build relationships, try engaging them in activities outside of school, like going on walks or playing together at home. Also, make sure you spend time talking with them about their friends and what makes them. Encouraging your child to try new activities If your child is excitedly approaching the school year 2019, there are plenty of activities to keep them engaged. One way to encourage new interests and activities is to offer a variety of options for exploration. Let your child try out new things, whether exploring the outdoors, joining a club, volunteering with local organizations, or taking classes in a new subject. It can be helpful for children to experience different aspects of life to understand better where they want to focus their energies in later years. Exposing them to various cultures and viewpoints can help them develop critical thinking skills and tolerance for other people's beliefs. It's also important to set limits so your child doesn't overdo things and gets overwhelmed. Be encouraging and tell them you will always be there for them.
