Earn Cash just by filling up a survey

Posted by greaterknowledge on May 9, 2008

I have been very fond of filling out surveys since I love to share what I think of certain things or products. It is very helpful for organizations and companies to know what people think of their products and services.  In this way, not only that their advertising themselves. But also, they are allowing each person to share their insights and willingness to upgrade the quality of a company.  Sometimes, thinking that a person might give a negative comment to such product would lead to a downfall.  No! Actually, these negative comments are the ones which gives these organizations and companies the idea of what to improve and what to retain.  That is why customers are very important to these companies/organizations.  Your word is theirs to keep.

There are  a lot of ways to help. But this is one way of helping at the same time earning some dollars too.  This is very good students, people who work at home on their PC, and people who wants to earn extra cash.  All you have to do is share your thoughts and join conversations. That’s it.

Leave me a note/comment if interested. Whether you just want to just join conversations or be an igniter and manage conversations yourself.  This is very interesting. Helps a lot of organizations groups, companies etc.

Top 5 Best Outing for Children

Posted by greaterknowledge on April 30, 2008

1.  The Zoo

Not only does the children enjoy being with the animals. They get to know different information about the origin of each. Here , they could learn how to appreciate animals and get to know how we can take part in taking care of them.  Zoo keepers has a big role in making the trip exciting.  Allowing kids to touch and feel certain animals would give them a one time experience  of this  opportunity they would never forget.  But of course, you have to make sure that they are well guided. That, there will be no kids left unattended.  Accidents do happen once in a while .

Check out the list of zoo around the world.

2.   Amusement parks

Kids love rides. They love popcorn, cotton candies, and a lot more goodies.
Children who are active wouldn’t want a place that is quiet and boring.  This is a place for them. They may even get to watch magic shows and a lot more.

3.   Beach Resorts

There’s nothing compared to a warm, cozy beach.  Building sand castles, a walk in the beach,  the late night bonfire gathering, play volleyball, sand bathing, etc. There’s a lot of things you can do in the beach.  We only experience this once in a blue moon. So, why not go for it.  Bring your children to a place of wonders.

4.    A Day in the biggest Library

Children loves to read books. They crave for more knowledge.  This is a good place where they can get busy.  Reading all types of books just feels like you’ve already traveled around the world.  Kids will also join storytelling sessions.

5.   Get involve in Sports

May it be basketball,  golf, soccer, tennis, and a lot more.  Give a child something to be inspired of.  I remember bringing my child to a basketball tournament.  This has helped him be more sociable and start communicating with other kids.  He even asked me to buy him his own ball.

There are actually a lot more places for children to go to.  But, these are just the places I decided to post.  I’ve asked certain number of kids on what places they enjoy most or they prefer to go. That’s why I came up with this examples.

Voted “The Best Family and Parenting Site”

Posted by greaterknowledge on April 30, 2008

If you are someone who cannot seem to find a school for your kid. I recently found a site where parents are able to research and compare schools. Don’t be stressed out. This is a brilliant opportunity for parents to make sure your child goes to school where he or she feels comfortable. There are multiple things to consider in choosing the right school for your child. This includes; the environment, the distance of the school.

In the US, there are a lot of schools from different states to choose from. You can choose between private and public schools. They allow you to browse through top-rated schools or schools that are near to your home. They also have a Parent Community where you can join groups and seek advice about your children. They have groups for preschooler parents, grade school and high school parents. also, the have this group which talks about learning and attention difficult among kids. Parents should not feel different. Thinking that their children are the only ones who is experiencing such behavior. Communicate with other parents to know or whether they have similar problems like yours. I believe that only Parents can help other parents.

Greatschools has come up with articles about how important family travelling is. They give tips and advice on how to make it as enjoyable and memorable to your kids. Actually, they give all sorts of advice regarding raising up kids. That is why this is a very useful outlet for parents.

Try joining discussion groups. It’s very addictive. You can really find solutions to your problems here.

Be Proud for the Graduates

Posted by greaterknowledge on March 22, 2008

I was with some of my friends the other day. Things were going well and everybody was happy. We were gladly enjoying ourselves. Exchanging our stories to each other. Then, one of my friends told us that her sister-in-law has finally graduated in College. Not only did she graduate, but she finished her courses with flying colors. She became the cum laude in her University. I was really proud. You see, her sister-in-law has worked so hard for this. Being a mom of 3 kids and a housewife is hard. The fact that, she was trying to balance her time with her family and studies, we have to give her credit for being patient and goal-oriented. That makes her an outstanding person. Regardless of what her negative attitudes were. We can still say that we ought to be proud of her.

It’s just sad when others can’t seem to really see the point of just being happy for that person’s achievement. There may be some things we can’t explain why a person succeed but, we have no reason to doubt how that person succeeded. Giving the person a thought of doubtfulness is mean. There are other people who just can’t bare the fact that some people are better than them. Though, they may think they are better. It’s just a matter of keeping it to yourself. You don’t have to say it out loud that, there must’ve been something that made her get reached that high. The earth is round my friend. It’s not always you who’s on top. Give others a chance to feel proud of themselves.

Imagine yourself being in the same position as her. You know you did your best. You’ve worked so hard even though nobody sees it or nobody even tries to notice it. Then, one day, you were finally given a chance to be known as one of the best in your school. Isn’t it that, you want to feel support and you want them to be happy for you? Doubting you would make you feel hurt. The fact that they’re not always around you, to judge how you got that achievement is not fair.

Don’t worry my friend. There may be other people who are envious of what you have right now. But, there are still more people who are very happy that you’ve finally reached your dreams and are here to support you all the way. I’m so happy for you. Keep it up! You deserve to be an Architect.

Improving your writing skills

Posted by greaterknowledge on January 23, 2008

Sometimes we thought that we are not capable of writing a very inspirational article or maybe a book. It takes practice for a person to do that. Well, I cannot say that I am a very good writer. But, I am open to getting to know more. Asking other writer’s advice is one way to improve yourself. Don’t be afraid to receive criticisms because this is your key to your goal. Being a good writer needs motivation, hard work and creativity. You must like what you do to become a very good writer. To be honest. I am not a writer. But, I love to share my thoughts and point of views to other people. I think, this makes me one of hell of a writer. I may have similar thoughts from other writers. But the fact that I’m having fun and loving it. Who cares? I just want to write.

I once read an article called Good Writing. It says;

In order to start with a good writing; you must want to produce a good writing. Second, you have to or you must believe that you are able to produce a good writing.

You see, I’ve highlighted the words you must remember. These are the tips on producing good articles or writing. You also have to have confidence in yourself for to you to be able to show the readers that you know what you’re talking about.

Writing always starts with a bad draft. But a good writer makes sure that he gets rid of the impurities until he comes up with a very good article. You don’t have to lose hope if you feel that your writing sucks. It’s a matter of rewriting it over and over again. Until you reach the best of your writing.

Love, want and practice. I’ve recently discovered a site where you can write reviews. Well, this is one way of practicing because people get to vote for your review. These reviews are rated in some way. The best part here is that, you get paid for writing a review. Try it.

So, goodluck for those aspiring writers. Everybody can be one, you just have to want it.

Choosing the right school for our children

Posted by greaterknowledge on January 10, 2008

The weather is getting really hot these days. This is just a sign that summer time has just begun. School has just finished and my kids are getting ready for our yearly family outing. Our children have waited months for this season to come. As early as April in the Philippines, us parents are already thinking of a better way to give our children proper education and comfortability of which school to go to. In my case, we have relocated into a new home. Thus, the distance between the school and our new home made it more difficult for us to travel. We had to wake up really early to prepare. Imagine the traffic my son has to face before going to school. By the time we reach our destination, I could see my son tired and exhausted. This made me decide to look for a nearby school. Unfortunately, I learned to appreciate the teachers in his old school. They’ve learned to understand my son’s behavior. We’ve also got attached to each other’s stories during PTC meetings. Even though my son has his own unique personality, he has learned to keep up with his grades. Giving me and my husband a place in the honor roll.

Choosing the right school is challenging for us. We have a lot of things to consider. I am very particular with the method how the teachers teach our children. I also choose a school where their primary language is english. It’s not that I dislike my children to speak their own native language. I just want them to hone them. So, when they reach high school and college, they are ready.

The school must be safe for our kids. The establishments around it should create balanced atmosphere for them. IF the school is near a computer shop or a billiard hall. Do you think our children would be inspired to study instead of just playing video games and billiards somewhere else?

I am a very concerned parent who is scared to see my children putting their future to waste. Time is very precious. Parents should be conscious on putting our trust on other people to take care of our kids in school. Teachers, their crowd and the environment are the main tree of influence. As our children spend most of their time in school than our home.

Constant guidance and love is what we can give to our children. Bless us all parents. As we may be given the strength and power to settle with the right decisions.
