Know About School Lockdown Drill

school-lockdown-drills

A free evolved and developed society comes with a price and we now live in an increasingly violent and dangerous world. Places that were once considered safe havens are a source of potential crisis. Schools are such a place being both vulnerable and symbolic. They house the nation’s future, they symbolise society and the value of education. They are an important component of not only the educational system but also the community at large. We all have a responsibility to protect our schools and everyone there. If a person enters the school campus with the intent of doing harm then the decision and the actions we take in the first minutes can be the difference between life and death for everyone involved. How we react at the first few minutes of the situation can really dictate the next several hours and as well as the distant future. We should educate kids about all safety measures and must impart age appropriate information to them about such incidents.

When it comes to safety in schools today, many schools are not only implementing the fire drills but lock down drills as well. Lockdown drills are also different from evacuation drills. Evacuation drills are designed to prepare students, teachers, administrators, and other people in the school to leave the building quickly and in a pre-planned and organised fashion in the event of danger such as a bomb threat, when conditions outside the building are safer than the conditions inside the building.

School lockdown drills involve teaching children and adults how to barricade themselves in classrooms and hide from an armed and violent intruder. This may be necessary for situations where an evacuation would not be appropriate.

Steps of school Lockdown drills include:

Quietly and quickly enter the nearest classroom whenever there is an announcement about a lockdown emergency. If you are already in a classroom stay put and if you are in the hallway or out of your classroom do not loiter to find your own classroom, instead just walk into any nearest classroom.

Doors to classrooms should be closed and locked by any teacher or a student. Try to close the door without entering the hallway. Do not panic and do not close the door with a loud bang.

Barricade the door quickly with portable furniture. Students should barricade the door from inside by moving classroom furniture like the nearby tables, desks and chairs towards the door. This will create a block for the intruder both physically and mentally. Stack furniture as high as safely possible. Should an intruder get the door opens their vision and paths will limit their desire to enter the room.

Secure the windows and pull down window shades. While the barricade is being put up, another student can just go and close and lock the window to block any view from the outside. Any open window must be closed to prevent any intruder from entering the safe area.

Turn off lights, projectors and monitors in the meanwhile. It is important to know where the light switch is and turn it off immediately without causing any panic.

Stay calm and composed at such moment of crisis. If you panic then you are likely to make a wrong move. Just breathe in and breathe out and stay quiet.

Students should move to the safe area of the classroom without any panic. The place where you hide should be the least visible area of the classroom to any potential outside threat. It is tough to stay quiet and composed in darkness but such an emergency situation demands right actions.

Next, take attendance of the students. Once all the tasks are completed and you are settled down safely inside the classroom one should make a note of all the students who are normally present in the classroom and of those extra students who have entered the room during this emergency.

The red and green sheet is required as an indication. If there is a danger or a threat in the classroom or if you need immediate emergency assistance turn the sheet to the red side and stick it up on the window facing out as your class sign. If your classroom is secured leave your class sign with the green side facing outside.

Never use the phone to make any calls outside. Remain quiet and seated during the lockdown. Do not use the classroom phone unless there is an emergency inside the classroom.

End the Lockdown when you get an all clear signal from the recognisable officials.

Schools these days make it mandatory for students to follow a Lockdown drill. If your school hasn’t performed a lockdown drill yet, we have listed all the safety measures above to help you.  Regardless of whether a lockdown situation occurs because of an intruder, it is important to plan for what happens after the lockdown is initiated.  This is true for schools, and also for hospitals, government and retail locations that have similar plans in place. In order to determine the appropriate course of action and ensure the highest possible level of safety for occupants, first responders require as much information as possible about an emergency. The greater the situational awareness they have, the more effective the response will be. After all, we must hope for the best but prepare for the worst!

Sibling Rivalry: Handle with care!

 

Sibling Rivalry

We have all read about sibling rivalry and fairy tales like Cinderella but what happens when you experience such a tiff in your house. Sibling rivalry happens when kids feel envy, jealousy or resentment, and can lead to arguments, fights, and competition for attention and power. So when are brothers and sisters having a normal spat and when it is a real problem, how can parents tell that and what must they do to keep peace.

It is a concern for almost all parents of two or more kids. Problems often start right after the birth of the second child.  Sibling rivalry usually continues throughout childhood and can be very frustrating and stressful to parents.

While it may be common for brothers and sisters to fight, it’s certainly not pleasant for anyone in the house. And a family can only tolerate a certain amount of conflict. So what should you do when the fighting starts?

  • Sibling rivalry starts even before the second child is born, and continues as the kids grow and compete for everything from toys to attention. It is important to give responsibilities to the older one and small tasks like helping while changing the younger one’s clothes and nappies, to feed the milk. Make sure you watch over!
  • Don’t get involved. Step in only if there’s a danger of physical harm. If you always intervene, the kids may start expecting your help and wait for you to come to the rescue rather than learning to work out the problems on their own
  • If you’re concerned by the language used or name-calling, it’s appropriate to “coach” kids through what they’re feeling by using appropriate words. This is different from intervening or stepping in and separating the kids. If you do step in, try to resolve problems with your kids, not for them
  • Sometimes it’s best just to give them space for a little while and not immediately rehash the conflict. Otherwise, the fight can escalate again. If you want to make this a learning experience, wait until the emotions have died down
  • Next, try to set up a “win-win” situation so that each child gains something. When they both want the same toy, perhaps there’s a game they could play together instead
  • Set ground rules for acceptable behaviour. Tell the kids to keep their hands to themselves and that there’s no cursing, no name-calling, no yelling, no door slamming. Solicit their input on the rules — as well as the consequences when they break them
  • Don’t put too much focus on figuring out which child is to blame. It takes two to fight — anyone who is involved is partly responsible

Remember, as kids cope with disputes, they also learn important skills that will serve them for life — like how to value another person’s perspective, how to compromise and negotiate, and how to control aggressive impulses.

Music helps brain development

Music boosts brain development

Music boosts brain development

Music is often considered as the universal language by all. Regardless of your age or where you are from, a good melody is something that everyone can enjoy and will reciprocate.

Experts do agree that it is essential to let a child learn to play a musical instrument as music provides strings of benefits. Music is an essential part of every child’s development. A great melody can often light up their eyes, cheer them up, encourage them to move around and dance, and even help instil confidence right at the beginning. And it doesn’t end there.

Studies have shown that music can help with language skills and develop fine motor skills right at a young age. A budding mind can grasp language real quick. A child’s speech is developed as he hums the right words of the song. But make sure your playlist has the right songs with clean lyrics! Nursery rhymes are often melodious and have easy lyrics that help kids to develop their speech.

No one knows for sure but some studies indicate that foetuses can hear and react to music. The study found that exposure to music in the prenatal period seemed to be linked to increased attention, more sound imitation and earlier vocalization in the baby. Soothing, classical music and nature sounds are believed to be soothing, while louder types of music may startle the baby.

Kids who learn to play a musical instrument often seen to have developed a sense of accomplishment that boosts their self-confidence. Children who become involved in a musical group learn important life skills, such as how to relate to others, how to work as a team and appreciate the rewards that come from working together. Music unites people!

If you want your child to develop their confidence, learning to play a musical instrument can help. Every child will need lots of encouragement and no judgement!  Appreciate your child every time they show the courage to play in front of others.
