Often times, pupils develop low self-esteem when they don’t perform well and constantly make mistakes. Teachers, model to your pupils the graceful acceptance of mistakes. That way, we are teaching them that we all make mistakes, we can recover from any mistake and that even intelligent people also make mistakes.

Teachers, please practice what you preach. Don’t feel ashamed when your pupils correct you or challenge your trail-of-thought. Instead of yelling “SHUT UP AND LISTEN!” take advantage of the interaction and engage them further. Then commend them for pointing out the mistakes.

As a teacher, be humbled by your mistakes. It brings you down from your high horse, and then turns it into something more positive by recognizing your errors and further expanding your mind by acquiring more information on the subject matter. It sharpens your teaching skills.


Teachers are sometimes expected to be superhuman. They are expected to KNOW IT ALL, NEVER MAKE MISTAKES, NEVER GET TIRED and NEVER HAVE BAD DAYS! This is obviously impossible, as teachers are only humans and prone to mistakes, just like the rest of us.

So, how should teachers handle mistakes during class sessions with their pupils?

When a teacher makes a mistake; though penitent, he/she shouldn’t dwell long on the mistake, but get into auto-drive to recovery from the mistake made—this makes you a better teacher over time. You learn to commit things to memory and put your improvement together in making you a better teacher.

Learning is a never ending pathway to greatness and being a teacher doesn’t grant you exclusion.

When pupils observe their teacher’s mistakes, they would most likely respond by correcting their teacher. Accept the correction without feeling incompetent, that way, you would have learnt something new and you would have taught your pupils to accept their mistakes, bounce back and be motivated to learn more.

HOW GOOD ARE YOU AS A PARENT? #igslekki #goodparenting


This is an indicator of a child’s well-being. It shows there’s some kind of stability and predictability in the home. Children thrive in such an environment. When there’s order, it helps them focus on what they’re meant to do – which is growing, learning and developing.

We try our best as parents to do what is right for our children. Sometimes the road is tough and could also be easy. So we must take the right steps by ensuring that we act in their best interest in firmness with love, fairness, patience and honesty.

Teaching our children good moral values to live by daily goes a long way in sharpening their behavioural patterns. Never relent on your efforts in teaching values, it often times stays with them and before long you’ll begin to see the fruits of your labour. Some children do experience difficulty, but effective and consistent parenting helps to clear the path for learning in every child.

You should be a go-to mum or dad; a confidante to your children. As parents, we should build the kind of relationships with our children that will allow them to trust us and be vulnerable with us. We should always try to listen to our children no matter how insignificant the issue may be.

“Children learn more from what we do, than from what we tell them to do.”

Have you ever thought about how our actions or the little things we do influence the kind of parents we are or will be? Let’s talk about that a bit and let’s see how well we are tracking.

Children need to feel loved and they also want to know that they are lovable. How do we do these? We can do these through our actions and words. They need a constant reminder that they are loved. It creates in them a sense of belonging and reassurance.

WAYS TO TEACH CHILDREN TO BECOME ENTREPRENEURS #igslekki #lekkischools #entrepreneurs


Teach them the importance of effective communication. This doesn’t only give them a winning edge in business but life in general. Teach them how to maintain eye contact. Help them work on their self-esteem as well. Always encourage them to write correctly, speak in a polite manner and respect others. Most importantly, teach them to always pay attention and listen to people.

You can also teach them how to create opportunities for themselves. Sometimes, university degrees are not sustainable. Dynamic employment markets are the makers of today’s world. Let’s teach our children to empower themselves at a young age, find themselves and impact lives positively.

“Independence creates confidence”- Lindy Abittan.

When you teach your child entrepreneurial skills, they learn to become dependent on themselves for their own success. To inspire creative thinking, ask them to share with you how to create money to get an item for themselves and work on it with them. It inspires creative thinking.
