Informal Education

I believe in informal education and I guess my husband supports this. Whenever we are with the children, be it traveling, visiting or shopping, we love to encourage them to observe people and things around them and often, that's when informal education comes in. When we see a tow truck with a trailer hitch, towing a car, we would ask the children to look and then explain the process and reason. When we see a lorry, we would ask them to guess and analyze what it is carrying. When we see an accident on the road, we tell them the importance of safety belt. Even through movies, we teach them the important values. Informal education is great as it involves everything in our everyday life.
