Reading and Literary Enhancement
Hello, Dear Parent Friends of the Web!
Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life.
Determinants of Civilization
As the age-old proverb seeks to express, 'Reading maketh a full man.' It is the gateway to knowledge and civilization. Our world is continually shaped by the history of ever-developing life events. It is about human interactivity with nature and culture - wherever, whenever, and however. Thanks to recorded history through time immemorial, we are, who we are today, due to the things and events that have fashioned our lives by means of thoughts, words, and deeds of civilization. Inevitably, reading, reflection, writing, journalistic interpretation, and communication continue to play a vital role in our lives. Thus, our literary ingenuity finds its roots in the aforementioned.
As parents, we have a responsibility to condition our family-culture with zealous curiosity for knowledge from the very inception of life. The child is a naturally inquisitive explorer of his world. His developmental needs - to fulfill his curiosities - must be matched with phase and time-sensitive opportunity, through intellectually stimulating, meaningful dialogue, reading, researching, and journalistic preparation.
The child deserves to be cautiously mentored with selectivity and moral sensitivity - to understand his world from every possible perspective - be it history, physics, chemistry, geology, botany, zoology, language, mathematics, social studies, literature, philosophy, and much more. Indeed, life would be 'an empty vessel' without reading and literary enhancement.
Nelunika Gunwardena Rajapakse will be pleased to show you, how you may walk beside your child, as an informed parent.
Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
