Proud to be a teacher!

What a great Halloween Party!  We had lots of witches, fairies, vampires, ghosts, pumpkins and other Halloween characters. It was a delightful evening with lots of laughter. Kids were so excited, they danced, sang, coloured, watched funny Halloween stories and  Snow White (the Host) gave them „little presents”.  Thank you for your participation!

Principles of Good Parenting

There is no more important job in any society than raising children, and no more important influence on how children develop than their parents.

” 10 Basic Principles of Good Parenting” by Laurence Steinberg

Highly recommended for all parents, teachers, coaches and any other youth workers.

People define good parenting in different ways…In my view, good parenting is parenting that fosters psychological adjustment — elements like honesty, empathy, self-reliance, kindness, cooperation, self-control, and cheerfulness. Good parenting is parenting that helps children succeed in school; it promotes the development of intellectual curiosity, motivation to learn, and desire to achieve. Good parenting is parenting that deters children from antisocial behavior, delinquency, and drug and alcohol use. Good parenting is parenting that helps protect children against the development of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and other types of psychological distress.” Laurence Steinberg

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s day at the United Kingdom

Mother’s Day is more popularly known as Mothering Sunday, the origins of the holiday date back to centuries when it was considered important for churchgoers to visit their home or „mother” church once a year. During Lent, the practice became quiet popular, and in a society where children were often sent off to work in other villages at a very young age, it quickly became a time for family reunions and celebrations that were fondly cherished. A special cake, might also be brought along to provide a festive touch. Later, Mothering Sunday became a day when children and domestic servants were allowed a day off to see their families. Celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, Mothering Sunday remains a time to pay mothers their due rewards for all their love and encouragement with flowers, candies, cards, and other tokens of appreciation.

How to Cook Good Kids!

First wash them with

Plenty of truth, love and affection

Then dip them into positive activities

Mixed with trust

Let simmer in joy, opportunity and education

Then bake in calmness and understanding

While cooling, keep your heart open

To see if any more ingredients may be needed

Such as: success souse and empowerment juice

Before you bring them to the table of life

Wrap them into some warm stay strong bread

Enjoy! 🙂

Life’s little pleasures: Dark, White or Milk?

It’s Chocolate National Week in UK!

The eating of chocolate has long been associated with love.  Apparently, the Aztec emperor, Monteczuma (c1502) drank fifty cups of chocolate a day to enhance his ardour.Chocolate contains Phenylethylamine and Serotonin both of which also occur naturally in the human brain. These mood lifting substances are released into the nervous system when we are happy and when we are experiencing feelings of passion, creating a a rise in blood pressure and heart rate and inducing a feeling of well being. So, when you need a lift – eat chocolate!

The first chocolate house was opened in London by a Frenchman. The shop was called the The Coffee Mill and Tobacco Roll. Costing 10 to 15 shillings per pound, chocolate was considered a beverage for the elite class.

History of Chocolate

1502 – Christopher Columbus introduces chocolate to Spain from his fourth voyage to the New World in 1502 but not as the product we know today. It was only consumed as a drink. The word „chocolate” was derived from the Aztec word xocolatl which means bitter water.

1615Anne of Austria (wife of Louis XIII) declares chocolate as the drink of the French Court , although this was only after much skepticism, as initially it was considered a „barbarous product and noxious drug”.

1640 – chocolate finds its way to England, among other European countries.

1657–  the drink becomes a best seller in England and excessive duties are imposed on chocolate. It takes almost 200 years before the duty is dropped.

1828Dutch chocolate maker Conrad J. Van Houten created the hydraulic cocoa press. The press enabled chocolate makers to crush the „nibs,” or centers, of roasted cacao beans into a paste (Chocolate Liquor). After crushing, some of the cocoa butter was extracted.

1848 – English chocolate maker Joseph Storrs Fry created the first eating chocolate by further refining the cocoa, adding sugar, and mixing the cocoa butter back in.

1875 –  Swiss Daniel Peter added condensed milk  to  chocolate and marketed the first solid milk chocolate bar.

Have a bar of chocolate! It makes your day sweeter! 🙂
