A MOM'S CLASS ROOM LESSONS....


The child was just two and half years and was trying to talk everything in a special way which none could understand except the mother and she had her own way of communicating to the Little One…. For many often, it was a 'Great Scene' of watching them together.... The child talks; the mother responds, again the child talks; the mother sincerely repeats that and the process seemed never, never ending for hours together….

All of a Sudden on one of those days, the mother seriously felt that her child should be able to communicate certain basic information to people around so that at any moment it would be helpful and further that would be the only way of learning the basic interactive talk….

With a great interest, she began her ambitious Project initially making the child speak out the names of people in close circles and their basic relationships, the basic food names, saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ by a tiny decision on the questions asked, etc etc…. And soon they arrived to a point where she started teaching him where each known person stayed…. The pronunciation of the place was a little tough for the child as those names could never be shortened like names of people, food items etc but to the surprise of every one, the Little One in no time learned those names too.... Every time the related question was asked, the name of the place was pronounced with certain difficulty by the child and it was truly a joyful moment for every one around to witness that….


The mother asked, “Where's your Gran'pa?”
The child with a pretty smile said, “In Mum'ai!”

“Where's your Granny?”
“In Deli!”

"What dear?  Your Granny stays near your Gran'pa....  Now tell me, where's your Granny?"
"In Mum'ai"

“Good!  Now.... Where's your Aunt?”
“In Nagpur, Nagpur!”

“Oh!  Great..... Where's the Uncle?”
“In Deli!”

"Again wrong.... Come on..... Tell me..... Where's your Uncle?"
"Mum'ai!"

"Dear!  Uncle stays with Aunt.... And Aunt stays in Nagpur.... So where's the Uncle?"

The child was silent.....

The Mom helped him out...."Say  Na..... Nag......"
The child with a big smile said, "Nagpur!"

“So much time?  Now listen carefully.... You should not tell wrong again.... Tell me, where's your Papa?”
“In Hisar!”

"Very good!  OK, then, where's your bro?"
"In ........."
"Yes!  Tell me...."
"Hisar"

"Excellent dear! You know all.... Now..... Tell me.... Where's my this Little One?”
“In Hisar!”

“Oh, so nice! You are so perfect.... Now the last one.... No mistake here.... You know.... Mama does not allow that.... And if you tell right, you will get your favorite.......... OK?  Now, tell me.... Where's your dear Mama.... Ma... ma...?”

"-------"

"Come on.... Tell me quickly.... There's not much time.... You have to learn a few other things also.... Tell me.... Where's your Mama?"

The boy was silent.....

"OK!  Go.... I'll not talk to you.... See.... You are not telling where's your Mama.... Don't know that much?  Your friend...... Tells all that so easily..... Yes!  Tell me now..... Where's your Mama? Hi...... Hi..... Hi....."

“Here.......” thus saying aloud and pointing at her, the child straight ran to his dear Mom with his tiny arms extended wide and embraced her covering her fully….

Instantly the Mom’s joy knew no bounds and forgetting all her planned dedicated Teaching, she straight away hugged the boy tight showering the unending kisses on him for a while!
