Parenting Tips: Your child is a diamond, do not suppress it under the burden of your aspirations.

Your child is a diamond. He has talent. He is promising. You concentrate on honing it. Parenting experts say, do not burden any child in your neighborhood with your expectations. Papa says bada naam karega, son humara kam karega karega This song was composed years ago, but now this statement has started applying to the mother more than the father. In earlier times, children were afraid of their father and used to tell everything to their mother, but now the father has become a friend of the children. Although there is nothing wrong in this, one's fear is fine to create discipline in the house. The problem is that the mother wants her child to be an all-rounder today. When a guest comes and there is a small child in the house, the mother immediately asks the child to show his skills, Son, show uncle a dance or son, make aunty sing a song. In earlier times, only studies were given more importance and if the child had any other skill, it was ignored and pressure was created to study. Then the movie 'Three Idiots' came and people understood to some extent that not every child can be good in studies and can make a career in other fields also. This reduced the pressure of studies on the child, but the pressure of expectations remained the same because the dialogue of the film 'Gupta ji kya Kahenge' is still prevalent in society and the issue is also stuck in the same place. 'Their children are doing it, why aren't you doing it?' In the age of social media, where there is nothing personal left, due to this, there is double pressure on children, because now there are many big platforms to showcase their skills. Small children are becoming very famous and becoming a part of reality shows. There are also many such schools where along with studies, extra activities like swimming, dancing, singing, skating, and horse riding are conducted. Parents also want to enroll their children in such expensive schools as per their capacity, in which they can learn everything. Now there are dance academies and singing studios on every street corner and teachers have started coming to the society to teach karate, taekwondo, and skating, who come to the children's homes and teach them. In such a situation, the child whose school does not have all these activities learns here by paying a separate fee. Then competing has always been a human habit. As seen in the neighborhood, sometimes a person goes beyond his means to improve his status among the relatives, which impacts the children. The mother works hard with the child, and takes her to different classes so that her child also learns every new thing like other children. If a relative has a child who is famous for singing, then she also starts preparing her child for it, without understanding what is the specialty of her child. He just has to show it to others, because today's world is about 'showing off'. Pressure starts coming on the child from an early age. Today mothers proudly tell their friends that their 2-3 year old child can use a mobile phone. They have no idea how much ill effects it has and will have. Every day we see in reels and shorts that innocent children are making such reels that are beyond their understanding. It is not being noticed that children's innocence and childhood are being snatched away due to this. When the child is unable to do anything according to the mother's wishes, he has to face the mother's anger again and again and he starts fearing her. Although many children around us are indeed all-rounders. But every child cannot be looked at with the same expectations. Due to being engaged in different activities, children are not able to spend quality time at home. Many times, it becomes clear that the mother has made her child a show-piece. We have to change our ways, otherwise no one else but ourselves and our children will suffer the consequences. Know the teacher's opinion also Gaurav Rathore, a geography teacher at Daily College, Indore, says, I see that mothers are wasting a lot of talent of their children in their efforts to make them all-rounders. We explain that it is okay to do everything, but the focus should be on one thing only, but this is not happening. Due to this, instead of becoming an all-rounder, children start learning every activity little by little, due to which they are not able to learn even one thing properly and instead of being an all-rounder, they become a mess. When a child does not listen to his parents, they come to us and request us to convince the child to agree to participate in every field. Most of the mothers come to the Parent-Teacher Meeting (PTM) and try to show us how aware they are. She tells us what activities her child is involved in after school and how talented he is. Papa understands, but Mother interrupts. Prasun, a class 12 student, says, after completing his studies, he wants to take his father's business forward. For this, I also help them in their work from now on and hence I do not want to go to regular college after 12th. But my mother again and again makes me fill some form or the other for a government job. She wants me to prepare for a government job, but I want to do business. I have also convinced my father about this. (PC: Freepik)

Loan Tips: Difference between home loan and construction loan, know which has lower interest rate..

Generally, everyone knows about Home Loan, but do you know about Construction Loan? How is it different from a home loan and do banks pass it as easily as a home loan? There are many such questions that often come to the mind of those who take loans to build a house. If we look at the banking rules, there is not much difference between a home loan and a construction loan, but the biggest difference between the two is that a home loan is taken against the constructed house, whereas by taking a construction loan you get the vacant property. Build a house on the land. This is the reason why banks also impose different terms and conditions for both types of loans. First, let's talk about home loan If someone wants to take a home loan, then he chooses a ready-made house and applies for a loan from the bank to buy it. In this case, the bank accepts your loan considering that property as a kind of collateral. However, for this, your CIBIL score and income proof should also be better. Generally, a home loan is available up to 90 percent of the market value of the property, but banks also determine it on the basis of your ability to repay EMI. Construction loan is a slightly different matter If you have your own land and want to build a house on it, then you apply for a construction loan in the bank. Before applying, you will have to tell the bank how big a house you want to build and how much it will cost. A quotation will have to be made and submitted to the bank. If your income and CIBIL score are good, then banks can give you 100 percent of the cost of building a house as a loan. Many banks allow loans up to 90 percent of the total market value of the land on which you want to build a house. For this, you will also have to submit solid land documents to the bank. However, both home loans and construction loans are available to you for a longer period. So you may have a long time of 30 years to repay it. Construction loans are a bit risky, hence their interest rates are slightly higher than home loans. What are the rules for tax exemption? Be it a home loan or construction loan, you will get equal tax exemption on both. Under this, through Section 80C of Income Tax, you will get a tax exemption of Rs 1.5 lakh annually on loan interest. At the same time, under Section 24 of Income Tax, you will get tax exemption of up to Rs 2 lakh annually on payment of loan principal amount. PC Social media

Income Tax: If you are investing to save tax then first know this important thing..

Everyone wants to save some part of their earnings. People also want to make more money from this remaining money, so they invest this money. At the same time, many people also invest just to get an exemption in Income Tax. If you are also one of those people who invest money just to get tax exemption, then you should know that it also has some disadvantages. Let us know about it and understand how you can do better investment planning. First of all, understand why to invest If you are thinking of investing money, then first of all you need to understand why you are making that investment. You have to understand where you want to use that investment money. This is important because there are different types of instruments for different types of investments. At the same time, the lock-in period of these investments may also be different. So before investing, decide what to do with the money. When should one not invest for tax savings? If your expenses are high and you are investing money in various schemes just to save tax, then you may have to face a shortage of money. There are many tax saving schemes which have a long lock-in period. In some, you can withdraw money only under very special circumstances, like NPS, PF, and Sukanya Samriddhi. Apart from these, you cannot withdraw money for about 15 years in PPF and for about 5 years in FD. If you break your FD prematurely, you will suffer huge losses. In such a situation, if you need money, you may have to take a loan from somewhere to fulfill it. If you have a good understanding of the stock market or understand mutual funds well, then you can get huge returns by investing money in them. In mutual funds, you can get returns of up to 15-20 percent, whereas in the stock market, you can make more money with your wisdom. Whereas in tax saving tools you will get only 7-10 percent return. In such a situation, do not invest money just for the sake of saving tax. First, understand what you want to do with the invested money in the future. What are the tax saving schemes? At present, there are many tax-saving options available in the market. If we talk about some popular tools, then the Public Provident Fund (PPF), National Pension System (NPS), Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY), Senior Citizen Saving Scheme (SCSS), Equity Linked Saving Scheme (ELSS) and 5 years tax saving. FD is the most special. PC Social media
