Are kids born naughty or are they just spoiled?
Why do kids misbehave?
Is it nature or nurture?
Dr. Dawn Harper and Dr. Ravi Jayaram will explore these questions in a new documentary series called ‘Born Naughty?‘ on Channel 4 (UK only). The series will start tomorrow, 14 May 2015 at 8pm.
I really hope that this programme will give describe the complexity of the development of behaviours. I guess we shall see…
It was Yom HaShoah yesterday, also known as Holocaust Rememberance day. The whole world were reminded of the horror that happened relatively recently in our history. Six million people were killed just because they were Jewish; just because they were different.
I cannot begin to imagine what those people went through- young, old, men, women, almost all practically walked and worked to their deaths. I also can’t imagine how the Nazi soldiers were thinking while they did what they did. It’s horrible, it’s depressing, but we need to remind ourselves of it to make sure that it does not happen again.
What can we learn from it? Well, we should treat people fairly. We should not discriminate against anyone who are different from us. Difference in s colour, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, psychological and physiological states, gender and sexual orientation should not matter. We deserve respect from each other.
The Science of Dr. Who starring Prof. Brian Cox and Matt Smith (a.k.a. The 11th Dr.) is a scientific look at the beloved British programme. Enjoy!
This week is anti-bullying week in the UK and I want to share the things that I have read, watched and heard about how to fight against bullies. Also, I want to share how bullying affects everyone. In the video below, Dr. Dan Olweus explains what bullying is and why it is important to stop it.
In the next video, children explain their experiences with bullying and how the Olweus Programme helped their school stop bullying.
