Do all children have families?

Earlier, most people lived in joint families. Children who had lost their parents stayed with their relative as part of their family. In today’s lifestyle, when there are fewer joint families, it is difficult for orphaned children to become part of a family. That is why there are orphanages to take care of these children, and some lucky ones are adopted and hence they find a new home. In a family the children are protected and given emotional and financial support. Apart from having a family, it is also important to have friends.


 Why some parents are married and others are are not?

Many couples prefer to get married, and then have children. Others do not marry, and live happily together with their children. In some cases, the parents get divorced and live separately. The children then live with one of the parents. If the parent finds a new partner, who may also have children, they often make a new family together.


What is a joint family?

In a joint family, several generations live together. Children live with their grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, and cousins. Earlier, joint families were quiet common, but today they are an exception. In a joint family the workload is shared among the members. In most cases, the parents work and take care of the financial needs, the grandparents take care of their grandchildren, and the elder children either go to school or help in household or the fields.


What does adoption mean?

Being adopted means that an adult assumes the role of a parent for an orphaned child. Even children whose parents cannot or do not take care of them often love in an orphanage and can be adopted. Adoption can be done by a couple or a single person. Adoption is a lengthy process, and it often takes long time till a child gets a new home. A lot of checks re done before the parents are given permission to adopt a child: do the adopting parents have adequate space for the child? Do they have enough money to raise a child? Can they provide a stable, healthy family? The only important thing is that the child should grow up with security.


What is a baby flap?

Sometimes a woman feels unable to cope with her new born baby, and things that it would be better if someone else takes care of the child. Mothers like these can anonymously leave their babies in ‘baby flaps’ provided in some European hospitals. The babies left at the baby flaps are considered to be orphaned and can be adopted by new parents.


Why are friends important?

One can have fun with friends who have the same interests and hobbies. Friends play together and often go to the same school. One can share certain secrets with friends, which one would not share with parents or siblings. Friends need not to be of the same age, and children can also have adults as friends. There should be a good understanding and mutual trust among friends.

  4. Baby flap is predominant in Europe but in Asian countries such type of children thrown out in gutters or in dust bins....much awareness needs in this matter..

    1. Yes, people should know about this.

How Do We Communicate? And what is Sign Language?

  There are a lot of ways to communicate: speaking, singing clapping hooting. Even animals communicate with one another in ways different from the humans. Only humans can express their thoughts and feelings in words because of our superior brain. Both humans and animals also communicate through body language. Sometimes, we don't use words but make gestures like traffic signs or simple movements of the hand in order to communicate.   Why can humans speak, but not animals? A lot of organs such as lungs, larynx, mouth, pharynx, tongue, teeth, and brain participate in the speaking process. Although animals possess all these organs, their structure is different from that in the humans. For speaking, it is important to properly control the processes involved, mainly breathing. This is done for us by our brain. First the air is inhaled, and then deviated through to the larynx from the lungs. The larynx has small muscles called the vocal cords. When the air passes through the stretch

Is Our Brain Bigger Than That of the Dinosaurs?

  What Differentiates Humans from Animals Biologists classify humans as animals and part of the animal kingdom. Like our nearest relatives, the apes, humans are also mammals. Humans have evolved from apes, but there are features that differentiate us from other animals- including apes. These include the upright walk, our opposable thumb, our special ability to communicate by a language, and our highly developed brain. Our brain allowed our ancestors, like the Neanderthals , to invent tools.   Did humans evolve from apes? Today, one can think of humans and apes as cousins. They have common ancestors, but have not descended directly from each other. About 5-7 million years ago, a line of man-like apes grew apart, and evolved independently of the other apes. The oldest, almost completely intact skeleton of an upright ancestor of human- the Australopithecus - was found in 1974 in Ethiopia (Africa). The scientists named it ‘ Lucy’ .   Do animals use tools? Animals do make use o

Why are we thrown forward when brakes are applied?

  Objects fall because the mass of the Earth attracts them. The force that pulls us towards the center of the Earth is known as gravitation. It keeps us on the ground and the satellites in their orbits. This force of attraction is much less on the Moon than on the Earth-only one-sixth. For this reason, the astronauts bounce when they walk on the moon because they experience weightlessness. In the state of weightlessness, we do not feel any force of gravity and do not feel any weight. However, we feel the forces acting on us on the Earth, when we fall from a height or when we are thrown forward when brakes are applied.   What is mass, weight, and density? All objects have a mass. Because of the force of attraction on the Earth, an object has a weight. This is the force with which the body-that is, the mass of the body-is attracted. The force of gravity on the Moon is just one-sixth of that on the Earth. A person who weighs 60 kg on the Earth weighs only 10 kg on the Moon. The dens
