New Language! German Language

Assalamualaikum wbt..

A quite long brake without any post. This happen due to my busy schedule for last two months. Currently waiting for interview result for elite pose in government. I hope the best will be chosen as the "decision maker" and hopefully I will be one of them. In shaa Allah.

Back to my title today, i would like to share with all of you regarding my new hobby. I love to study new language which is German Language.

Actually, i have been influenced by PTD Whatsapp group because they keep talking in German Language. Therefore, I though I also want to know more about what they are talked and I take the initiatives to study new language through Duolingo web.

Additionally, I also choose German as my new language because I already study Madarin during my degree for foreign language subject. On the other hand, I also already take Arabic subject for my PMR and SPM examinations. Luckily, my result for Arabic during PMR exam was 'A'.

Furthermore, I can add this language into my curriculum vitae (cv). Thus, now in my resume i will have five languages which are Bahasa Melayu, English, Arabic, Mandarin and German. Alhamdulillah. I will keep practicing because as we know the famous idiom said that "Practice makes Perfect"

Here, my result obtained from the Duolingo.

Guten Morgen! 
Ich HaiBt Liza. 
Ich Komme aus Malaysia.

My idol : YB Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh, Minister of Higher Education

A leader is a person who empower others (Bill Gates). A leader also can be defined as a person that holds a dominant in his/her field and able to influence others. We often heard the statement "leaders are born". But, in my opinion, great leaders were not born, they were developed through never ending process of self-study, education, training and experience (Jago, 1982). Therefore, all of us have our own idol to be emulated because a good leader is a good follower. 

The person who i admire and respect the most is our current Minister of Higher Education, YBhg. Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh. Briefly, he was born on Nov 19th 1955 in Terengganu. During secondary school, he attended elite school, Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman (STAR) and he was the one of the best students in STAR during his time. He was sent to Australia for matriculation. He came back to Malaysia before completing his studies in Australia because his father died and he attended Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and became overall best student there and gold medal award recipient of best student. 

He is a Malaysian Politician and he was the former of Menteri Besar (MB) of Terengganu and also the chairman of MARA. Currently, he is the Minister of Higher Education starting appointed on July 2015. 

Honestly, why i choose him as my idol is because he is very kind-heart person, especially to all the Kelantanese residents. He had determination to be great, very informative and humble person. All the kelantanese residents comfortable calling him as "Yeh" as his nickname. He had very generous heart and always help residents who had low income and had difficulties to continue study. 

To sum up, YBhg Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh is one of the great leaders in this country. Through diligence and experienced, they improved upon their opinions and feedback and constantly looking for the best step to accomplish goals for a group. Hence, all of us have the great potential to become leaders such as in communities, at work, organizations and etc. To be a good leader, we must possess an effective leadership such as expanding self awareness, practicing empathy, maintaining proper boundaries, criticizing artfully by praise them first before criticize, flexible to different people styles and following golden rule principles. 

Golden Rule Principles :

1. Treat people with respect
2. Show fairness
3. Display honestly in both words and deeds
4. Embrace the diversity

In a nutshell, to be a good leader, we must possess certain qualities. My experienced as student representative council at Johore Matriculation College and Vice President of Tun Dr Ismail residential college committees give me a lot of useful experienced to become a good leader in the future. Currently, waiting for Administration and Diplomatic officer (ADO) PAC result and hopefully i will excel and become an ADO in the future. In shaa Allah.

Do we only use 10% of our brain?

It's a notion that's been propagated by movies, magazines, and motivational speakers and repeated by well-meaning folks and shysters alike. They tell you that you are only using 10% of your brain. If you are only able to access a fraction of your brain power, just imagine what you could do if you tapped into all that unused potential. Read other people's thoughts, play the stock market, crush cans with your mind and levitate. Not to rain on your brain parade, but that 10% stuff is so far off that it would be laughable if it were not so widespread, and I kind a can't believe I'm still talking about it. 

So like many myths, it's hard to pinpoint exactly where it began. There is no definitive source, though some have linked it back to the American Psychologist William James and even Albert Einstein, who both suggested, in so many words, that we were only using part of our mental potential. 

But the fact is, we is pretty much every part of our brains. A lot of it is active most of the time, whether you are reading a book, or listening to music, or walking around town or even sleeping. How can we be so sure? For one thing neuro-imaging techniques like PET scans and MRIs actually let us see the brain in action. This images show as that nearly every region of the brain lights up during even simple tasks, like walking and talking. While, we don't use all of brain at once, just like we don't engage every single muscle at the same time, those scans prove that over the course of any given day you use just about all of your brain. It also stands to reason that if 90% of your brain was useless, you could remove large portions of it, as you might an appendix or tonsil, and carry on as usual. Brain damage and disease wouldn't be as much of a concern if only 10% of the organ was actually functional. But, in reality, there isn't a single area of the brain that can be damaged or diseased without resulting in some kind of physical or mental consequence, small or big. 

You may have heard of the case of Phineas Gage. the 19th-century railroad worker, who wound up with a spike through his head because of an accident. It actually didn't stay in his head, it went all the way through and then kept going for a quite while. It didn't kill him, somewhat surprisingly, and he still had his memories and his skills. But many of his friends reported that he had changed personalities. Now we don't actually know a ton of Gage, because a lot of people used him to try and prove a lot of different of points over the years, but there is little doubt that you can have a rod go through your brain and not have somethings messed with. 

Then, there is Clive Wearing, the British Pianist, who had a viral infection that destroyed his hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls the storage of memories. As a result, he is no longer able to recognize anyone but his wife, and he can't retain a memory for more than 30 seconds at a time. 

Every part of your brain has a function, and you need it in order to keep being you. Finally, we know that our brains are working all the time because we have to constantly feed them, literally. The average human brain accounts for about 3% of a person's body-weight, but it demands at least 20% of the body's energy to keep all those neurons firing. We are talking hundreds of food calories every day just so your brain can remind your heart to beat, or help you solve for X, or remember where you left your phone. Our constant need for food, especially foods rich in fats and sugars, has a lot to do with our brains. It wouldn't make much evolutionary sense for us to expend so much energy feeding a useless, wet lump. So, in the end, while telekinesis would be pretty awesome, our brains are already capable of truly incredible things. In fact, if anything, we only understand a fraction of what's going on up there, so instead of insulting its function, be thankful for all that your brain does, which is more than you know.

Zika Virus

What we don't know is often scarier than what we do, especially when it comes to public health. Earlier of this week, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared an international public emergency over the Zika virus, which in it's word, is spreading explosively across Central and South America.  

But, there is a lot we still don't know about Zika, and scientist are in a hurry to learn as much as they can because this virus has been fought for decades to be practically harmless, it may turn out to be responsible for a rash of serious birth defects. Zika is a virus, named after the Zika forest in Uganda where it was discovered on monkey in 1947. It's from the family of viruses known as flavivirus which also include dengue, yellow fever, West Nile virus, none of which are all pleasant. But infection with Zika seems most often to create little more than mild-flu like symptoms if any at all. It's spread by certain kind of mosquito known as Aedes, tropical bloodsuckers that spread other flaviviruses.

For decades, Zika has been circulating around parts of Africa and Asia, but it didn't appear to be doing much damage. People who were infected would come down with a mild fever, a rash, a headache, but that was it. Up to 80% of people showed no symptoms at all. So, it's been thought that a stable relationship was struck between human, mosquito and virus. People who are infected at an early age suffered mild illness and the developed immunity before they were old enough to get pregnant. 

Then, all of a sudden in 2007, the virus moved. There was Zika outbreak on Yap, an isolated set of islands in the southwestern Pacific. Nearly three-quarters of the population were infected. But again, the results were mild and nobody died or was even hospitalized. Then, in November 2015, health officials in Brazil raised alarm about worrying trend. Last year, nearly 4000 babies were born with extremely small heads, a condition known as microcephaly. For each of the previous five years, this number was more like 150. This was bad news. If babies do survive being born with microcephaly, they can severe physical learning difficulties their whole lives. 

Many things can cause microcephaly, including genetics and malnutrition and heavy alcohol use during pregnancy. But none of these things could explain Brazil's sudden increase in birth defects. What was new to Brazil that year was Zika, first detected there in May 2015, but largely ignored. There was no reason to suspect it, but tests on a handful of pregnant women with affected babies revealed the presence of RNA from the Zika virus. Now it's not certain that Zika and microcephaly are related, but new evidence is coming in almost daily and as now officials are assuming that they are related. 

Unfortunately there is no vaccine for Zika and it could take a decade to develop one. As a result, advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is based entirely on avoidance and vigilance. For example, women who are pregnant or think they may be, should avoid any of the 26 countries where Zika is active, mainly in Central and South America. For those who are living there should do whatever possible to avoid mosquito bites, like using repellent, wearing long sleeves and trousers, and removing standing water where the mosquitoes breed. In the meantime, researchers are working to clear up many things about Zika that we don't know. Like causing microcephaly all along in Africa and the South Pacific and it just wasn't reported? or is there something different about the virus in Brazil, or the way it interacts with people there?  while doctors tackle those questions other scientists are focused on stopping the spread of the virus. 

The Aedes mosquito lives mainly in tropical and subtropical regions and it's not likely that it will ever leave that range. The main worry is that the virus will find a different way to get around or mutate into an even more dangerous form like the West Nile virus did back in the nineties. Viruses are master mutators and human are master travelers, both of which could help Zika spread. 

Some experts think Zika came to Brazil around the time of the 2014 World Cup, among the thousands of traveling sports fans. This summer, Rio, Brazil is hosting the Olympic games, so it seems we have a lot to learn in very little time.

The over dependence on foreign workers and its effect to national security

The foreign worker is referred to a person employed in a country to which a person is not a citizen. These workers are hired to work in the host country. Based on the news reported by the Bernama, currently there are more than 2.3 million foreign workers in Malaysia. According to Foreign Workers Management Division of Ministry of Home Affairs, foreign workers only permitted to work on manufacturing, construction, agriculture, plantation and services such as restaurant sub-sector (cook only), cleaning and sanitation sub-sector and resort island sub-sector. Male and female foreign workers from the following source countries are allowed to work in all sectors mentioned, which are Thailand, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Indonesia.

Since the numbers of foreign workers in Malaysia increase gradually, and recently, Utusan reported that Bangladesh has been signed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) with malaysia by G2G Plus system to send 1.5 million foreign workers to malaysia. Thus, this situation will contribute to threat imposed towards the national security aspects such as economics, socials and politics of the country. The researchers from University Utara Malaysia (UUM) state that the national security includes all sorts of threats and not specifically focussed on military threats merely. Forms of threat are such as economy, environment, social and culture, politic, ethnic, energy source problem, migration, trafficking, smuggling, cyber crimes and terrorists are considered as a new form of threat to the national security. 

The overflooding of foreign workers especially with semi or unskills is continued and without control, it can bring a negative impact to local economic aspect, social tranquillity, national threat and political stability. According to the former Home Minister, Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein, the increased number of foreigners in Malaysia does not tally with foreigners record, including those registered with the foreign workers recruitment agency. He fears that the increase of foreigners including foreign workers will cause a bad implication towards aspects like social, security and peace until it tarnishes the country’s image in the eyes of the world (Utusan Malaysia, February 17, 2010).

In fact, Malaysia leaders have also voiced out their fears towards losing the security of the country due to the increasing number of foreign workers in Malaysia. The former 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad stated before during a meeting with former Indonesian Prime Minister Megawati Sukarno in year 2002 in Bali, that: “most immigrants or foreign workers who live in Malaysia are unemployed and are involved in criminal activities. This situation has raised a concern among the locals of Malaysia” At the same time, former 5th Prime Minister, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who then was the Deputy Prime Minister, stressed that: “the government needs to take actions to stop immigrants from entering the country. This step needs to be done because many criminal cases that occur involve illegal immigrants. Therefore, a stricter policy needs to be enforced and implemented”

The entry of foreign workers especially illegal migrants in large amounts has caused negative outcome towards the wage structure from continuously increasing. This is because most foreign workers are willing to accept any amount of wage and work any amount of long, flexible hours compared to the locals. For example, a manual worker from Indonesia who works in a big city like Kuala Lumpur will receive salary as low as RM12.50 a day and will have to conduct a different job in order to gain higher income. Usually, a foreign worker in construction sector earns between RM12-16 per day compared to a local worker in the same sector; that is RM20-25 per day for Malays and RM25-35 per day for Chinese, working in the same working capacity. If this phenomenon continues, it is feared that Malaysia will remain known as a country that orientates about low wage labour and as a result, the country’s aim to be a developed country by the year 2020 may be a difficult target to accomplish

Finance Minister made an announcement that up to June 2008, a total of RM9.12 billion has been channelled out of our country and is expected to increase and reach up to twice that amount by the end of year 2008. This is because there are 2.1 million foreign workers registered and it is assumed that each of them sends RM720 every month. This total does not include those who enter illegally, who are estimated to reach up to 1 million of them. Even then, the government considers that they will not possess threat to the growth of the country’s economy based on the belief that the reserve owned is way more than that amount. But then, in the long haul, it may damage the country’s economy especially from aspects of currency exchange and country’s balance of payments (BOP) when reduction in currency value occurs, and then soon it will affect the country’s reserve (Utusan Malaysia, October 23, 2008). At the same time, the entry of foreign workers into Malaysia can also increase the rate of poverty. According to Shari and Embong (1998), foreign workers contribute significantly towards the percentage of poverty in Malaysia. According to the research done, the rate of poverty among the poorest for foreign labours increased from 6.0% in year 1995 to 9.9% in year 1999. This shows that more foreign workers are earning equivalent to or less than the Income Poverty Line. This indirectly gives a negative outcome to the status and quality of life among the Malaysians.

At the same time, the presence of foreign workers has the possibility to threaten the social aspect of the country, such as health. There are foreign workers who enter the country without going through health check up required, and as a result, they bring along contagious disease. Most foreign workers who come in are from under developed countries and have very low levels of health and disease control. In year 1992, the government announced that 30 percent of the 337 thousand foreign workers are HIV positive. With that, the government ordered a rule where every foreign worker who wants to work in Malaysia will need to go through two health check-up processes, first in their own country, and the other in Malaysia (New Straits Times, July, 30 1992).

At the same time, Safety and Health Department exposed that 80% of the foreign workers in the plantation sector are positive for HIV. Based on this analysis and the observation made by National Anti Drug Agency, most HIV cases are among foreign workers in the plantation sector and this is due to the misuse of drugs and not sexual activities (Utusan Malaysia, June 12, 2008).

The presence of foreign workers can also increase the criminal index point in Malaysia. Because of the leniency of border control and management of foreign workers that lacks efficiency, especially the illegal ones, has caused criminal activities to expand vastly. Among the criminal activities that have connection with foreign workers are fights, theft, robbery, murder, smuggling, raping and many more.

The Home Ministry has once announced that 14, 809 out of 37, 446 prisoners in Malaysia are foreign workers where majority of them are illegals. This amount is said to exceed 28% of the capacity that is affordable for the Malaysian prison to support (Marzuki, W, July 8, 2008).

There are some illegal immigrants who already paid a lump sum of money to the ‘illegal agents’ to obtain legal documents and part of them managed to receive blue identification card, which is only specified for Malaysian citizens (Karim et al, 1999). In this regards, the authorities have captured an illegal immigrant in Sabah who tried to use a blue identification card to apply to enter the military. This situation is a serious matter where it may threaten the sovereignty of the country’s defense and military system (Berita Harian, May 14, 2008).

At the same time, the local media also reported approximately 300 thousand foreign workers were hired as security guards. Most of them are from Nepal and have experience in the military and this situation will possess a security threat to the country’s sovereignty. Therefore, Dato’ Seri Syed Hamid Albar who was the Home Minister at the time, said that: ‘although we admit that they (Nepalis who work as security guards) have contributed in the national interest, but then these foreign workers (security guards with military experience) have the possibility to bring about security dilemma in the country’s sovereignty’ (Abd. Rahim, T, February 22, 2009, pp: 7)

At the same time, it is estimated that 30 thousand illegal foreign workers are illegal immigrants traced to be working illegally in the local security industry including guarding housing and industrial areas. This has been exposed by the Malaysian Security Control Service Association which also added that most foreign workers are from Bangladesh, India and Myanmar, who are paid between RM400 to RM500 a month, for duration of 12 hours of service per day. As a result of the observation done by that association for the past three years, it was found that some of them were employed by individuals who operated without license. There are also Nepalese hired to work in Malaysia given work permits in the plantation and service sectors but in reality they work illegally as security guards in factories and housing areas (Kumar, January 14, 2011).

Despite on the negative contributions of foreign workers, bringing them to Malaysia also give positive contribution which the one who are willing to work in 3D sectors (Dirty, Dangerous and Difficult) because in reality, not many Malaysian parents want their children to do 3D jobs although their childrens think differently (New Straits Time, Feb 26, 2016). Mostly foreign workers sweeping the roadside, cutting grass, pruning trees and cleaning offices and toilets and the locals are preferred to work in air-conditioned offices or in hotels or shopping malls. According to Bill Gates, “We rely on skilled foreign workers for their math, science and creative abilities as well as their cultural knowledge, which helps when localizing products for world markets.”

In a nutshell, the foreign labour policies and regulations should be strengthened and re-ironed to ensure that foreign labour inflow could meet necessary needs of the local requirement of employment and rehiring of foreign workers policy is the best way to reduce the new employment of foreign workers. Finally, it suggested the best solution to enhance the efficiency of the government administration in employing foreign workers.

Kepentingan Pengangkutan Awam

Menurut kamus dewan edisi ke-4, frasa kepentingan merujuk kepada sesuatu yang penting atau keperluan. Manakala, menurut Kamus Pelajar Bahasa Melayu Edisi ke-2, pengangkutan awam boleh didefinisikan sebagai sistem pengangkutan bermotor seperti teksi, bas dan kereta api yang boleh digunakan oleh orang ramai di kawasan tertentu dengan kadar tambang yang telah ditetapkan. Maka, dalam konteks ini, pengangkutan awam meliputi semua jenis pengangkutan awam yang terdapat di Malaysia seperti bas, teksi, kereta api, KTM komuter, KL Monorail, Express Rail Link (KLIA Express dan KLIA Transit) dan transit aliran ringan (LRT). Maka, kepentingan pengangkutan awam di malaysia merujuk kepada keadaan di mana pengangkutan awam di Malaysia menjadi satu keperluan dan menjadikannya sebagai pilihan utama kepada masyarakat setempat samada untuk ke tempat kerja atau ke sesuatu destinasi.

Pengangkutan awam ini amat penting kerana pengangkutan awam memberi peluang mobiliti dan akses kepada tempat kerja. Selain itu, pengangkutan awam juga bertindak sebagai pembantu kepada mereka-mereka yang tidak mempunyai kenderaan persendirian. 

Kerajaan telah menaiktaraf pengangkutan awam di Malaysia melalui Nilai Keberhasilan Utama Negara (NKRA)  yang terkadung di dalam Pelan Transformasi Kerajaan (PTK/GTP) iaitu menaiktaraf pengangkutan awam di bandar. Kerajaan memberi tumpuan kepada penambahbaikan empat aspek iaitu ketepatan masa, meningkatkan kualiti perjalanan, memastikan rakyat mendapat akses mudah pengangkutan awam dan menyediakan kapasiti pengangkutan awam yang mencukupi bagi menampung penumpang sedia ada dan penumpang baru. 

Langkah-langkah seperti meningkatkan kapasiti KTM komuter dan LRT sebanyak 1.7 hingga 4 kali ganda dan penambahan sebanyak 22 set tren empat gerabak baru sistem aliran Kelana Jaya dilihat sebagai langkah serampang dua mata dan serius yang ditunjukkan oleh kerajaan untuk memudahkan semua pengguna pengangkutan awam. Selain itu, kerajaan juga telah menaiktaraf perhentian bas dengan menyediakan perhentian berbumbung bagi memberi keselesaan kepada pengguna. 

Di samping itu juga, kerajaan memperkenalkan 1 Tiket 1 Perjalanan dan menambah 6,800 tempat letak kereta bagi merangsang masyarakat terutamanya di ibu kota untuk menggunakan pengangkutan awam bagi mengelakkan kesesakan lalu lintas. Tambahan pula, Terminal Pengangkutan Bersepadu (ITT) juga telah dibina di Bandar Tasik Selatan yang dilengkapi pelbagai kemudahan seperti pasaraya, mesin ATM, bilik penjagaan bayi, medan selera, pusat bagasi, farmasi dan motel untuk kemudahan para pengguna pengangkutan awam yang berhenti di ITT. Di sana juga terdapat kaunter informasi, polis, KIOSK layan diri, kaunter tiket dan WiFi percuma. ITT juga mesra golongan Orang Kurang Upaya (OKU) dan mendapat skor 75% bagi audit mesra OKU. 

Antara kebaikan yang diperoleh apabila masyarakat di Malaysia menggunakan perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam ialah dapat mengurangkan kesesakan jalan raya, selamat digunakan dan menjimatkan kos, tenaga dan masa. Contohnya, menaiki KTM Komuter dapat menjimatkan masa berbanding menaiki kereta persendirian yang perlu mengharungi kesesakan jalan raya ke tempat kerja. Tambahan lagi, pengangkutan awam juga mampu mengurangkan kadar kemalangan jalan raya. Selain itu, perpaduan dapat ditingkatkan melalui interaksi antara kaum cina, melayu dan india semasa mereka menggunakan perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam. Tambahan pula, pengangkutan awam dapat memelihara alam sekitar daripada terus tercemar jika masyarakat dapat mengurangkan kenderaan di atas jalan raya. 

Natijahnya, pengangkutan awam penting bagi semua. Semua pihak perlulah menggunakan pengangkutan awam dengan sebaiknya dan mengelakkan vandalisme semasa berada di dalam pengangkutan awam seperti menconteng dinding bas dan sebagainya. Selain itu, masyarakat juga perlu berdisiplin dan menjaga kebersihan semasa menggunakan pengangkutan awam. Semoga usaha kerajaan dalam meningkatkan mutu pengangkutan awam dihargai dan digunakan sebaiknya oleh masyarakat dan turut sama dapat menikmati manfaat darinya.

Children imitates their parents

What is imitation? Cognitive development is the process through which the brain takes in "information to make meaning" which is something that our brains do naturally. The way baby's brain make meaning is through experience, which is made up mostly of interaction with the important people in his life. This means that learning is social, and for babies, involves imitating the people around them. Imitation provides the children with the opportunity to practice and master new skills. In addition, imitation also serve a basis for the development of empathy, or the ability to experience what another person is feeling. 

Based on the previous research that has been conducted by Andrew and Meltzoff (1999) shows that imitation is an avenue by which children come to understand their parents. Infants are born to learn, and they learn at first by imitation their parents. Imitation is such an far-reaching aspect of early development and it is not just a behavior, but a means for learning who we are.

Even at a very young age, children imitates their parent's behavior. Parent behavior presents powerful lessons to a child and leaves impressions on the developing mind. Children store in their mind both positive and negative images that may be imitated or tested at a later time.

For 1-year-old, imitation follows a four-step processes include watching and listening, processing the information, attempting to copy a behavior, and practicing. Language development offers an example. When 1-year-old form simple words like baba, they're really imitating the sounds they hear around them. Over time, after countless repetitions, they process this information. "Toddlers start to narrow down the sounds to ones that make sense, like Mama for Mommy," Dr. Klein says. Then they keep practicing until they can use the word in context.

What parents can do? Parents can give a good example and become children's idol by showing a good deeds to their children. For example, make a good sound from mouth and our children will imitate us. Moreover, we can sing songs with our child. A tambourine, piano, guitar, drum and xylophone are fun for older baby to try. Furthermore, parents also can tap a table or clap our hands and see our baby is copying us. 

Besides, parents also can teach on how to clean the house to their older children by doing physical activities such as mopping the floor, clean up the fan, sweeping the floor, washing the clothes, setting the tables, and putting away toys . On the other hand, babies between 12-36 months learn by doing, not just watching. Thus, we can show them on how to complete the simple tasks such as putting on shoes, holding a spoon, jump, hop, skip and crawl. 

In a nutshell, Experts say parent imitation/modeling is essential for kids to develop healthy academic skills. In order to have a child love reading, therefore, we must let her see us reading often at home. If we want a child to value learning, ask questions and learn new skills by ourselves. Model the behavior we want to see in our child and always congratulate and say please and thank you to them for their good deeds. Our child might not say it right away, but she will over time. We are the one who shaping our children.

Thank you.
