Starting from the basics, like counting the numbers and identifying the hands of the clock and moving on to advanced time telling with calculations for how many minutes past or to a certain hour and for how many minutes did a particular activity occur, this time telling activity can leave your child puzzled if not done gradually and properly.

Since the last couple of years, I wanted to avail my time in a productive manner and “do something” and earn a few bucks while doing so… I thought of many ideas, one being to start a fashion designer’s boutique, the other, opening up a learning centre to teach kids skills like mathematics and language e.t.c. but none of my ideas managed to even start working out for lack of space or lack of facilities did not venture up the project right from the beginning!
One day, I accidentally tumbled upon a freelancing site and then lo and behold! there was no looking back after that.. I made my account, registered myself and started applying for a decent writing job with the hope of working hard myself and not getting any pay at all! Continue reading
