Children With Mental Retardation

Frequently there are individual differences from child to child, but the there are common characteristics in children with mental retardation issues. 
 Children with mental retardation have poor impulse control and responses are often an over-reaction to the situation. This may be confusing to them. They may need to have the situation explained to them, especially where their thinking went wrong. Over-reactions may be general thinking errors, and they need explanations in simple terms. Make sure they are looking directly at you because they cannot calm down if they cannot hear you. And they cannot hear you if they cannot see you!

They have a limited number of social and communication skills that can result in using physical acts to express anger and frustration rather than words, especially when the situation is complex. Help remove the complexities of the situation and communicate with words rather than actions.

 Moral judgment requires the ability to be able to go beyond oneself and see how your behaviors will impact someone else. Children with mental retardation cannot always do this without help. They need people to point this out to them. Once someone points out how their behavior impacts someone else, they will understand, and they may or may not do something about their behavior. They may also need to be told exactly what to do, especially if the situation is ambiguous.

They really have a hard time understanding motives and feelings of others. They tend to see very little beyond themselves and how they are impacted. They may have immature ideas about the causes of things and who is to blame about things that are their own fault. They might also assign blame for accidents, and they may not always understand the difference between accidental and on-purpose. If the situation is too complex, they do not always understand the difference between right and wrong. Simple right and wrong – hitting, yelling, etc. – they do understand.
Very few kids with mental retardation will freely admit that they have mental retardation. They want to be normal and fit in. They will act as though they understand something even though they really don’t because they want to fit in, and because they want approval. They are more likely to answer ‘yes’ than ‘no’ to questions. It is important to know this. You can still ask yes-no questions, but follow them up with questions that find out if the person knows what you are asking, or if they are seeking approval. Ask to explain the idea or how it works. Avoid ‘what if’ questions.

Kids with mental retardation may do some things better than they do other things. They may have a strength or some social capability. Or they may have a strength in a small area where overall they are limited.

Find Inspiration in Life

Are you an artist? Or someone with creative skills? You just cannot complete your work if you’re not inspired. You need to find inspiration to do something. To churn out the maximum creative juices, you need to find your inspiration.
And it’s not just for artists. If you want to give a direction to your life, you need to be inspired. But the problem is, most people don’t really know what inspires them. Let’s see how you can find your true inspiration.
We all have different inspirations
While some artists are inspired by nature, others are inspired by humans and their ways of living. We all have different inspiration sources. Some of us need to look within for inspiration, while others have to look outwards. There is actually no golden answer when it comes to finding inspiration. Also, there can be multiple answers for an individual. I find inspiration in many things. And nobody can tell you what should or shouldn’t inspire you. You have to find out yourself. I can only help you in your journey. When I look back at my life, I see that I have been inspired by different things at different times. When I was a teenager, I was I wanted to be a musician like them. As times change, our inspirations and role models change.
Focus on what you want now
While I still enjoy music, I don’t really want to become a musician anymore. So music isn’t my inspiration now. Today I have different goals and I get inspired by world travellers, entrepreneurs, and leadership. I find people amazing. I am amazed by their abilities and accomplishments. But I find that getting inspired by people isn’t enough. This is why I also draw my inspiration from travel and nature.
Since inspiration sources keep changing, you don’t need to think about the past for inspiration. Think about now. What inspires you and sets your soul free right now? Think of today. What do you want to do right now, or where do you wish you were? That will lead you to your source of inspiration.
Turn to nature
Nature is something that can inspire almost everyone. If you are feeling uninspired, go wandering. Clear your mind of all worries and go out in cool weather- just to enjoy the scenic beauties of nature. This is something that will take your mind off all worries. You will soon find inspiration in nature. From different plants to water bodies, to exciting animals- nature is full of surprises. Just relax and enjoy it, and you’ll be inspired.
Here are some ideas
If you still are unable to find your source of inspiration, try these:
  • Read biographies of successful or great people
  • Travel and visit another culture. Mingle with the local people there and learn about them
  • Go to photography exhibitions and see the beauty captured in images
  • Go to the beach and enjoy a quiet walk. This will give you time to reflect on your inner self
  • Go to new restaurants and try different type of food. Eat something that you have never tasted before. Many chefs get their inspiration this way
  • Go out with friends and have a hearty chat over a long coffee break
  • Read some interesting blogs that give some useful information
  • Listen to a new kind of music. Select a new genre and enjoy it
  • Teach other people. Impart your knowledge. This will give you happiness
If you really want to gain spiritual knowledge and inspiration, you need to be open-minded. If you have hatred for someone because he belongs to a particular country or religion, you cannot gain spiritualfreedom. Remember, free your heart of all hatred. Be free in nature, and you’ll find yourself being inspired. Stop being biased or intolerant. Treat everyone equally and with same love and compassion, and you’ll find just love around you.
Leave your iPod. If you are going wandering in nature, make sure you leave your iPod at home. I have seen many people who go on early morning jogging sessions and plug their earphones so that they can cut themselves from the ‘noise’ of the nature. Just enjoy the nature and be one with it. Pay attention to what it is trying to tell you. Listen to bird sounds. It is all very relaxing and peaceful. Your favourite music might be really great, but there is nothing better than the music of nature. Enjoy it for a change.
And in the last, another thing that will help you get inspired: talk to people, socialise. The more you talk to people, the more you will learn. Without socialising, you are just sitting at one place and having one particular mindset. Leave that place. Stop stagnating. Meet different people and learn new things from them.

Not satisfied with the Car Insurance - Want to switch Insurer?

There is practically no reason that might compel someone to continue a relationship with a company car insurance that is squeezing you out of money and making you exasperated and frustrated. If such is the situation don't forget that insurance is nothing, but a form of business and as a customer you always have the right of walking out.

There are a number of reasons that might prompt a car owner to change his automobile insurance service provider for a better option. Here are some of the reasons that can trigger a switch from one insurance company to another. 

High Price: Are you paying more than the standard market rate for your car insurance? Car insurance premiums can vary a lot, depending upon the insuring company and a number of other factors and finding a cheaper alternative is never difficult. 
Quality service: The quality of service is another factor that leads may vehicle owners to change their insurance companies. If you are experiencing negative claims or they are taking a lot of time to process your claims then it is the time you better move on to someone else who will take better care of your requirements. 
Customer service: The companies providing insurance for car must also provide their clients with excellent customer care services. If your queries are not handled properly and you feel neglected due to unprofessional treatment, there is no reason for continuing with them and suffer. 

But before changing your auto insurance service provider you better make sure that you don't commit the same mistake twice and learn from your previous experiences. Compare auto insurance quote provided by different companies and find the best plan from the company that are reputed for their high pay up percentage and also take good care of their insurance policy holders.  percentage and also take good care of their insurance policy holders. 

If you are looking to change your auto insurance serviceprovider then you should also be careful about the time to commit. If it is possible to shift your insurance to another company you can always do that. But it will depend upon the terms and conditions of your auto insurance policy. Otherwise, you will do better to wait till the policy expires and they make the switch. If you decide to change your car insurance provider, you better cancel your existing policy by direct interaction with the company otherwise it might create some legal difficulties. 

You can change your company car insurance anytime but it is wiser to wait till the expiry of the policy. Shifting your insurance to a different company might involve the payment of a certain amount as transfer fee but if the premium rate is comparatively lower a change of this kind might prove profitable on a long run.

Beautiful nature and our role in protecting

Beautiful nature and our role in protecting

God   (swt) created   nature of all balances for our  own  in order to enjoy happiness and beauty, which relieves the soul after the effort that we face at work and the search for the requirements of life, which has become over what endure.Rather than thank God for this blessing, and enjoy what we see around us, we destroy this beauty  which has been  found for us.                                                                                                                                -  Cut the forests that give us life,                                                                                                                                                                                               -  Pollute the water and the seas  and spend intentionally or  not  the beautiful creatures that live safely without mercy and without regard to the tampering of this is caused by damage to our lives and the future of our generations to come                                                                                                                                                                                             –  Kill and destroy wildlife created by God and that regulate the balance of nature has become so most of the components of this life is threatened with extinction for the selfish pleasure does not last and may be returns from it by all means trivial .                                                                                                                                           –  We are polluting our  clean air to the point that life has became unbearable in many of our cities, and became many of us looking for a safe haven and clean outside of these cities, and, unfortunately, these havens have become narrowed  day after day may come the day that we’re losing these places as well.                                                                                                                                                                           And our factories  became  emit thousands of tonnes of  toxic gases and destructive of life every day, which led to the global warming that threatens our planet .                                                                                                                                                 We are in  need  for a  serious stand for all parties to preserve what remains to us of the elements of life , and the remains of the beauty around us to enjoy and be a last resort against the pollution that has become covers everything around us.                                                                                                                                               Despite the great efforts made by many NGOs and community to maintain the balances created by the Creator, which is really commendable, but the danger is still increasing steadily, making these efforts, as if of no benefit because the required intervention of states and international organizations and others to put an end to this danger before it’s too late .                                                                                                 We believe that individual responsibility is not less important, but on the contrary, if there is awareness appropriate to the members of the communities and families as well  ,  the results would be reassuring, and hope to reduce the risk , we do not say eliminate them , still exist .

Explore the ways to get better grades


In order to excel in your school studies, the very first step is to realize the difference between studying and learning. Learning is a natural mental activity that makes you to get familiar with certain ideas and theory and their practical usage. It is quite different from the study process which doesn't involve any active mental process rather it requires you to rote memorize things as they are mentioned in the course books.
Rote memorizing is not the right approach to learn things and ideas. If you really want to attain knowledge about a subject, your approach towards learning needs to be holistic. You need to increase your ability to interlink the ideas of various study material and to practice it in your mind so that the ideas, facts and theory may naturally get imprinted on your mind. By doing so, you will not only be able to get better grades at school, but also, you will be able to make better and practical usage of your education.
There are many e-books available that will provide you various techniques to memorize things, lists, theories, and a lot more. Yet, none of such books actually make you familiar with the means of learning. They try to help you in increasing your ability to memorize things without actually understanding them. Such strategies often fail to help you get better grades in school examinations. This is so because when you try to memorize ideas and theory without understanding them and making them your own ideas, you will remain prone to forget them or to commit mistake while copying the things that you stored in your memory. The learning process has nothing to do with memorizing things. In order to attain better grades at school you should try to learn more study less.
How to learn to get better grades
The correct way of learning is to break the study material in into easily understandable and practical partitions. Once you do so, you will be able to visualize the interlinking between the whole study materials. As you will start understanding the initial bits of your course, you will increase your potential to learn further with the help of the familiarity of the ideas of the study material. There is a good e-book that offers some of the best possible learning strategies to teach you how to learn more and study less to gain success. Please visit the website to know about the better ways to learn more and get better grades
