Hi and Salam to all.

I just thought of having a thread to discuss about our kids and how we are bringing them up.

Allhamdullilah I have been blessed with a boy who has turned 7 this year. He was born in the UK, however I always make him aware of his Bangladeshi heritage.

At home we speak to him mostly in Bangla. He understands alot but we encourage him more to answer.

I and my brother in laws practise playing cricket with him back yard. Maybe next year I might put him in a cricket club for proper coaching InshahAllah. We will be taking him to watch his first game next year at the World Cup.

His favourite player is Shakib Al Hassan, because he watched his first match on tv against New Zealand where he had a brilliant innings.

Mine is turning 14 this August, he is good at multiple sports.

But currently I am a bit worried about his inclination to online gaming, youtube etc. This is becoming a challenge.

Advance Birthday wishes.

What kind of sports does your son play?

I think swimming is the most essential thing. I got my son to swimming classes when he was 3 years.

Yes the online world and social media can be such a rough place for kids. I am studying on how to deal with this issue when my son starts using such platforms.

We have an youtube app that is child friendly.

I allow my son to play games but not online. He enjoys the lego games and Grand Turismo. I really want to get a Raspberry Pi so we can both play the classic games.

Break his console and introduce him to programming.

Is there any kid that plays with action figure these days? I dont know if it is a good or a bad thing, but born in 84 and growing up in 90's I used to love the He-Man toys (used to have to wait for my birthdays for my mom to buy me a new character). I know it is not programming or anything intellectual, but it helps kids to develop creative minds according to my folks. May be I am wrong.

I used to have a He-man too, and I loved that little micro comic they used to give along with it. I was looking for one myself a couple of years ago. Wanted to remind me of my childhood.

My son plays with his action figures and some of his friends do too. Among his collection Iron Man, Hulk, TMNT and Transformers. He has three sizes of Iron man and loves that thing. That is the action figure I like the least. But nowdays kids have so many choices. I think its important as these things make children create their own world and open their mind.

Very good thread!

Adam bhaiya, One World bhaiya, Tonmoy and Dinraat,

Since your children are still very young: The following will be my suggestions (based on things that interested me as a child and an young adult, and still do and helped shape my life).

Comics
Lego
Drawing/painting - After school classes?
Any kind of crafts (after school/community classes?)
Gardening- plants - fauna and flora
Pets - Small fish tank- few fishes and aquatic plants/cats, dogs or rabbits adopted from a shelter

Music playing: instruments: In the West - violin, piano. and also maybe introduce tabla and harmonium and sitar/tanpura if possible.

Now I understand all of these won't work on all kids - some will, some will not.
Pets and plants will teach compassion and caring for another living being, possible rise of a conscience to help a (the) helpless.

Bicycle and swimming are great! Any sports and martial arts would be great. Adam bhaiya, you already started cricket with our bhaitja, that is great.
Teach them to make their own food at a very early age.

Teach them to stand up for the weak and down (in the society). Teach them to love.

Start getting them into geography and have encourage them to read books, stories - whether very young or not - stories with illustrations.

Collction hobbies: stamp and coins. die cast toy cars.

i still do all of the above. + I also do model trains (HO scale). One world bhaiya's son can start model train, since he is at the perfect age for that. Adam bhaiya's one may be a few years later.
Make model planes, ships, wooden boat. Radio control flying styrofoam planes.

I do all of the above except that I do not have any RC planes and my wife and I do not have a dog now, not anymore.

Some excellent suggestions from Bujhee Kom bro which is Ironic to his nick as he understands alot

Lego is really important I agree. My son waters his grand parents massive garden from a very young age. I think in our home we will start to grow some plants , especially ones that bears fruits and vegetable.

My wife wants to get a Hamster for him, but I hate pets.

Yes musical instruments I think are important as I think it enriches one life as well and helps concentration.

I have collected some Asterix and TinTin comics which I will share with him soon. But tbh comics are not encouraged in the UK. Also it is not widely available. But during my childhood Archie and Billu/Chacha Chowdhury would give me much pleasure.

Thanks for reminding me about his own cooking. But also important is to do the shopping.

Nah he if wants to game, introduce him to PC gaming, even though it's a niche, it still has all the triple A titles, but most importantly he will be exposed to the computing environment. If he does(obviously he will cause we are Bengalis) go to uni, he will have a nice foothold when it comes to using computers.

Try to get him into chess, I know it sounds old fashioned, but chess really forces you to think, analytically and think ahead.

But for PC games, I started with racing games, then I learnt about piracy, watched YouTube videos, and started pirating my games. You would want him to be familiar with computers, the world is shifting to the digital age, everything is computerized.

NOT ENCOURAGING PIRACY HERE, YOU SHOULD OBVIOUSLY SUPPORT DEVELOPERS.

Games I recommend.

Need For Speed Franchise.(No violence)
Far Cry Franchise(little violence less than Call of Duty)
Elders Scrolls(becareful with this one, it can get him hooked very fast)

One more thing, make sure in school, try to put extra emphasis on Maths, Have you asked him what he wants to be when he grows up if its along the lines of Doctor,Engineer or Scientist, make sure he FOCUSES on math alot.
Till this day, I see first years fail all there uni level math subjects due to incompetence and preparation. I know he is only 14, but its crucial you prioritize math, before other subjects, since it is most widely used at a tertiary level.

Some good points here. I am trying to get those Pi gadgets to play retro games the ones which I have enjoyed in the past like contra, streetfighter, etc etc.

BBC has alot of good programmes which build higher skilled career awareness. But we are now focusing on developing his skills on maths which he enjoys.

Adorsholipi is good if you want yor kids to learn Bangla. That’s how we all started in kindergarten and home. O te Ojogor, I te Idur.

Mina is a good educational cartoon teaching family and societal values.

So these are not bad suggestions for anyone who wants to raise their kids with some Bengali language and heritage.
