Permission Marketing Becomes Permission Socialising for Kids

By - 04/07/2010 - 14:31

The other day a 12 year old told me that looking up a friend's telephone number in a phone book (online or offline) was "stalking". Apparently it's okay to call a friend if their number is in your mobile phone, but otherwise, contacting a friend without warning or invitation on their home number is "creepy". Wow, things have changed. Or have they? Read full post

Educating our Children for Long-Lasting Fulfilment

By - 05/07/2010 - 09:25

When it comes to bringing up our children most of us would agree we want them to be happy. So the way we educate and raise them should reflect this. Of course when we say we want our kids to be happy we mean we want them to enjoy a holistic sense of wellbeing. Critical to this will be their ability to lead a life which is congruent with their values, priorities and passions. Read full post

Motherhood and Guilt - Are They Inseparable?

By - 05/07/2010 - 18:39

I love being a mum and I love working. Trying to combine the two means living with the nagging thought that I'm not giving 100% to either of them. Or the housework. Or my husband. Or my siblings, my father, my friends, my garden, our dogs, the goldfish ... or my job or my kids or myself ... you get the drift. Read full post

Love, Children and the Joy of Literacy

By - 06/07/2010 - 14:01

I spend time reading with and to my son. Together we have climbed a faraway tree, we have fought with wizards and dragons, we have visited secret gardens and dived with dolphins and whales. Read full post

The Girl Who Gave Me a Rainbow

By - 07/07/2010 - 21:17

I've done some tough interviews in my 20 year broadcasting career. Politicians, world leaders, superstars, mums, dads, kids, cops, rich, poor ... people with joyous stories to celebrate, people with tragedies to share. For Starlight Day this year, I did an interview with 12 year old Dainere Anthoney. It was both a pleasure and a heartbreak, but to me this is what my job, and my privileged position is all about.

True Beauty

By - 12/07/2010 - 00:00

This year, the theme for our primary school disco was ‘Beauty and the Geek’. Her father took our eldest daughter along to the disco, so it was only later that I heard from the other mums about some of the remarkable versions of beauty that were on display there. We are so used to thinking of beauty as external perfection: the spectacular, the outstanding, the flawless. There is another way of seeing beauty, though. Read full post

Kodaikanal is a town built around this amazing 100 year old school that features stone buildings, green lawns and spacious classrooms. It's situated in the Palani Hills of the Western Ghat mountains and has a year 'round beautiful temperate climate. Read full post

Sholai School, Palani Hills, Tamil Nadu, India

By - 19/07/2010 - 15:56

After three days of workshops at Kodaikanal International School, I received an unexpected invitation for a courtesy visit to Sholai School, located in a valley area 1000m below the Kodai hill station. My western-nurtured eyes saw a combination of paradise and hardship around me. Running the school looks like very hard work. All electricity comes from solar energy or micro hydro-energy; the school is also experimenting with the use of bio-fuel. Sholai School engages in organic farming and also runs its own dairy producing organic milk and cheese. Read full post

Jain Schools, Bangalore and Hyderabad, India

By - 25/07/2010 - 18:41

I've visited three schools run by the JGI Group in India this week; the founder of these schools is Dr R. Chenraj Jain. An integral part of the Jain schools' philosophy is the development of the whole person and an intention to nurture in every student a love for learning, a strong sense of self esteem, personal integrity and a respectful, caring attitude towards others.
