Food and Exercise Part 5

This is the last of our blog pieces on Food and Exercise.  We have already looked at food and exercise for the body, the mind, and the heart. For the body, nourishing physical food, and enjoyable exercise do the trick.  For the mind, interesting factual information forms the food, and the exercise comes in the form of reasoning, problem […]

Food and Exercise Part 4

So far we have looked at physical and mental food and exercise. We know how important it is for children to get nourishing physical food. Each day they need breakfast, lunch and dinner; and we also know that they need to get fresh air and exercise to turn that food into a healthy body for life. And mentally it […]

Food and Exercise Part 3

The Meaning of Stories

  Stories are like a delicate flower.  Touch them too roughly and the bloom is spoilt.  Stories are like an intricate watch.  We can take it to pieces and carefully lay each spring and dial and mechanism out on a table.  From one point of view, we may have a greater understanding of the watch.  […]

The Developmental Ages of Children

There is much research on how children learn.  Much of this research is concerned with how their thinking changes as they grow.  There are several models such as Piaget’s four developmental stages, and Kohlberg’s levels of moral reasoning, and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
