A view from the playgrounds of iNTELLYJELLY’s comics. One can find all types of characters on a playground. Among the regulars are the explorers who try out every swing, slide, and obstacle in the playground. The shy ones who spend their entire playtime either in the sandpit or on one swing till they are called to go home. The naughty ones who like to play pranks on their friends and are always giggling and grinning and are usually covered with sand or mud. And a relatively new character among the kids are the observers, they aren’t always among the crowd but they can recite stories from the playground with expressions and enthusiasm that will get you to listen to them no matter how you may be. One can find all these characters in various editions of a kid’s magazine.
The sights and sound of a playground are always quite amusing. Parents watching over their children playing can sometimes be seen having a laugh at the antics of their children. However, it is important to keep a watchful eye on children because even before parents realize, children pick up ideas and words from other children, mostly older children at the playground. They use these words or implement these ideas in other settings, being careful not to do so within the view of parents. Thus, teacher’s notes and principal’s calls become more frequent and not for the right reasons. So how are these problems tackled?
Watching over kids like a hawk?
No, the answer is not to watch over your kids like a hawk and disrupt their self-development. The ideology has been portrayed in many editions of India’s no.1 Kid’s Magazine, iNTELLYJELLY. Parents and guardians alike should be observant like the peer characters in iNTELLYJELLY. Like Dadaji watching over Arjun, parents must pay attention to their children and be a silent observer in their lives. Thus allowing them to make a blunder but catch them in time before it goes out of hand.
In the magazine for kids, the importance is not comic relief but morals, etiquette, and ethics. iNTELLYJELLY shows children through its cartoons that it is wrong to hurt someone knowingly and it is incorrect to pretend nothing has happened. Not only this, iNTELLYJELLY empowers the kids to make the informed decision. In fact, it should be the earnest duty of parents and elders to guide not only their own children but others they come across who might be treading on the wrong path. Many of times, one may find people interested to correct their own kids or move them away from ‘bad children,’ however, that is not the suitable approach.
Playground manners are an important aspect of a Child’s Life. All Children should be privy to such knowledge so that they can share good positive ideas on the playground with their friends. Playground manners are not only about calling out people on the wrongs, it also includes Identifying ‘bullying’ and ‘bad play’. This way kids are well informed of the many things they will come across in their day to day life and have a general idea of how to deal with things.
iNTELLYJELLY believes that educating children with worldly ideas is very important and keeping them current is equally important. Addressing various issues that children and parents face is a large part of the ideating process at the magazine. Any wonder how we are the best at what we do?
Until next time!
Intelligent reading is fun! Happy reading!
