What makes us human?


ABSTRACT
The purpose of this article is to explain how we can be a true human. Is it our cognitive ability, our storytelling, our beliefs, our curiosity, our ability to cook, our culture that makes us human? Are we half ape or half angel? It has been an interesting challenge for me to have had the opportunity to write this article and to try and organize my thoughts on human exclusivity, inspired by the various contributions. There can be no doubt that this article will make us think about the basic question of what makes us human in a new light. We will also, no doubt, make our own choices of what it takes.

What makes us human? What makes a human different from other animals? This question can be read in several ways. We all know how to identify humans: (1) upright primates with (2) lively hands, (3) big brains, (4) short faces, and so on. But do we really feel that these qualities are enough to be a human?
We are the only creatures on earth that possess a brain which is developed to such an extent that we can ask this question to ourselves: Who exactly am I?  Someone who's heartless, is unkind and insensitive to other 's feelings. Being an emotionless human we can have a better life than the one we have now. We may impulsively answer ‘no’ to this, but let’s think about it. Think of all the emotions we go through every day, some good and some bad. We would be sacrificing the good but could that outweigh not feeling the bad? All of us at some point will go through heavy emotional blows in our lives and the consequences of these could last years. Many people now going through a particularly tough time would possibly jump at the chance to be emotionless. However, emotions do make us human. Answers will be very subjective, and no doubt some people out there who have been through a crippling life event would be desperate not to feel the pain and willing to sacrifice anything to be free from it.
To become a better human, we need to engage ourselves in a process of continual self-improvement and learning. This is done by creating a system of good habits and simultaneously eliminating “not-good” habits which over time will give us the right mental framework for dealing with people, situations, and unexpected events as they arise.
Tips to be a True Human (TH)
If we want to be a “True Human” or a better person or employee. It could be a simple matter of adopting the right behavior. Here I mentioned some qualities to be a good or True Human.
         Be Emotionally Open
         Be open and honest with those we love. Express our opinions and listen to others without criticizing.

         Be Honest
         Honesty is a way of life. It means we don't steal, we don't cheat and we are faithful enough.

         Be Happy
         It's not about money, looks or status. Being genuinely grateful for what we have.

         Be Confident
         Be confident in what we can--and cannot--do.

         Be Disciplined
         We are strong enough to say no to life's many temptations, from food to drugs.

         Be Respectful of Others
         When we treat others as we would like to be treated, we are showing the ultimate kind of respect.

         Take Pride in Yourself
         A feeling that we  respect our self and deserve to be respected by other people, While too much pride can be seen as sinful.

         Be Easygoing and Fun
         As the old saying goes, "Live, laugh, love." fun, is something that is a source of enjoyment, amusement, or pleasure.

         Be Empathetic
      Being empathetic to the needs of others, suffering for the sake of another is the act of kindness and goodness we accomplish as human beings.

          Have a Sense of Humor
         We have to be able to laugh, especially at yourself. And laughing is almost always better than crying.

NEW AGE COMMUNICATION



The Technological revolution brought with it the information revolution which, in turn, ushered in the communication revolution. It is quite ironical then, that the generation which spent its adolescent years in this communication revolution lack, the basic communication skills.
We live in a world where youngsters have a limited repertoire of expressions. These are the kids who spend rest of their time pouring over online social networking websites-a time which is limited to superficial interaction with acquaintances and most of it goes into just browsing over other people’s lives. The days of letter writing with comprehensive description of one’s life are long gone. Those were times when communication could not make with the click of a button hence it was a necessity to have effective communication skills. but now the current generation has developed a new language which is better known as the” sms language” where the vocabulary is significantly reduced to a few functional words and even those select few functional words are reduced in length. For example,”How are you” becomes “Hw r u “,”tomorrow” becomes “2moro”,”awesome” becomes “awsm",and so on so forth.

Parent Child Relationship



Parents are the ones whom a child learns to trust. Parents and families are the most important people in children’s lives. The many different relationships people form over the course of life span, the relationship between parent and child is among the most important. 

The parent-child relationship consists of a combination of behaviors, feelings and expectations that are unique to a particular parent and a particular child. The relationship involves the full extent of a child’s development. 

Parenting is gardening – The universe blossoms in the face of child. By bringing out the best in your child , you bring out the best in the universe. The sleepless nights, the career sacrifices, the postponing of your so many activities . The prize of parenting comes at a price.  Parents show their children how to live. In childhood, children cannot face troubles and parents show them how to conquer problems. Parents keep away them from danger and warn them. Besides that they support their children with no expectation. 

“All children behave as well as they are treated.” When parents have warm, trusting and reliable relationships with peers, family, they are more likely to have positive relationships with their children.
Spending time with children is necessary because most of the parents are working and they do not have sufficient time to pay attention to their kids. As a result of which the child is left almost alone. You must need to give him or her company apart from paying attention to other daily routine work.
Tips to boost your child’s confidence and self-esteem:

Attitude makes a difference



Do we know what is common among all the successful people in the world? It is their  attitude. As rightly said by Winston Churchill- Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. We may possess countless skills, talents and capabilities but it is the attitude that makes us or destroys us. People with treasures of resources, innate innumerable abilities and greatest opportunities available don’t succeed because they are not blessed with positive attitude that makes one grow progressively in life and become efficacious in career. A person with constructive attitude is always a great performer.
Life is always uncertain. We usually have little or no control over things. But certainly there is one thing which is under our control is our attitude. External events may be beyond our control, but our reactions are completely under our control which if optimistically applied to life will contribute positively to our personality. Those who don’t know the art of handling uncontrollable things in life will surely fall down. This is the reason different people react differently to the same event. If we hold the right attitude we will enjoy each phase and event of life beautifully.
