Why do children learn about people who help us
Learning about the past through the theme of ‘People Who Help Us’ – ‘People who help us’ is a popular learning theme in the Foundation Stage. It helps children develop their knowledge of the world around them and understand how they are part of a local and wider community. Aspects of this theme can also provide opportunities for children to develop their understanding of the past.
Who helps us in our community
There are lots of people who help us in the community and it’s great to learn about how they help us in our day-to-day lives. Some of these people help us in emergencies, like firefighters, police and doctors and nurses. If there is an emergency, you’ll need to know how to get in touch with the right person to help you (however old you are).
Other people help us to stay safe and healthy, like opticians, dentists and refuse collectors. Anybody can do a job that helps other people if they have been trained properly – maybe you’ll want to do one of these jobs when you grow up. Note for parents: Learning about this topic helps children to make connections between themselves and the outside world.
It aims to make them more aware of the different jobs and roles people take on in their own homes, in school and in their local community. It can help allay fears for children who worry about going to visit medical specialists or have concerns about intruders or fire.
By educating young children about the people who try and prevent these things happening or help us if they do we are showing children the systems in place within our society to ensure that we live in a safe and supportive community. The topic also provides key life skills for children (for example, knowing how to dial the emergency services, who to ask if they get lost, how to test smoke alarms, etc.).
This topic encourages children to notice places and people in their community and, show them that they are part of a wider community and opens up possibilities for them to consider future careers. If taught well it can also play a major role in helping to break down gender stereotypes and ensuring equal opportunities for everyone.
Who help us in daily life
The names of people who help us in our everyday life are given below, – – Doctors When we fall sick, Doctors examine us and treat us according to the disease or ailment. – Farmers Farmers work hard to provide us with food and vegetables. They work in fields whether it is a hot, cold, or rainy day.
- Soldiers Soldiers fight with enemies for us, they protect us, and they readily sacrifice their lives for the country.
- Tailor Tailors stitch clothes for us.
- Clothes are our basic needs.
- Sweeper Sweepers clean our home and make us feel happy.
- Washerman Washerman washes our clothes.
- They make the dirty and greasy clothes bright and shiny.
– Vegetable vendors We get vegetables at our door due to vegetable vendors. – Pharmacists Pharmacists provide us with medicines.
What is the role of a community helper
Role of Community Workers – The main role of a community helper is to guide and help the members of the community to make their lives easier. They have different roles depending on the specialization they work in. However, the general role of a community worker is to be in charge of society.
Community workers provide emotional support, guidance, and counselling to individuals and families facing various challenges. They may help with issues such as health emergencies, fire in facilities, crime reports, and lifestyle issues, performing the jobs such as house help, serving, plumbing, farming, and more.
Now that you know who is a community helper, let us look at some examples of them and learn what they do. Also Read : 11 Engaging Gandhi Jayanti Activities For Kids
How can I be a helpful child
5 Ways to Become the Child Your Parents Always Dreamed Of
- 1 Listen to your parents. It’s important to remember that your parents have more life experience than you; therefore, they know more than you. In fact, there’s a saying “Father knows best.” So, no matter how much you think you know, your parents will know more and will know what’s best for you. By paying attention to your parents, you are letting them know that you care about hearing what they have to say. There are some things that you can do to show your parents that you’re not only listening, but you’re actually hearing them.
- Give your parents your undivided attention. You are demonstrating to your parents that you’re open to communicating with them and you respect what they have to say.
- Don’t try to talk over your parents while they are talking. This is a sure sign that you’re more interested in talking rather than listening.
- Don’t be rude by talking back to your parents or by interrupting them with rude remarks. Making rude comments creates tension and things can quickly escalate.
- Avoid pouting, whining, throwing a tantrum, or making gestures and faces to indicate your irritation with your parents.
- Don’t ignore your parents when they are talking to you or asking you to do something. By ignoring your parents, you’re showing them that what they have to say doesn’t really matter, which may cause them to become agitated and upset.
- 2 Do what your parents ask you to do. Once you reach a certain age, you may think that it’s okay to do what you want to do instead of what your parents ask you to do. Remember that they are your parents and not your friends. If they ask you to do something, make sure that you do it even if it doesn’t make sense to you or you don’t feel like doing it.
- Make sure that you do your chores. It’s best if your parents don’t have to keep asking you to do your chores. If you know what you have to do, whether it’s daily or weekly, make sure that you get it done.
- Don’t be lazy. One of the best things that you can do for your parents is to be helpful. Not only is it important to do your personal chores, but you can offer additional help with things like yardwork, putting the groceries away, preparing meals, doing the laundry, walking the dog, and washing the car.
- 3 Avoid arguing with your parents. It’s common to think that your parents are wrong and you’re right. Even if you are right, you don’t have to prove you’re right by arguing with your parents. There’s a saying “You don’t want to win the battle and lose the war.” It’s okay to disagree with your parents, but by constantly arguing with your parents, you run the risk of shutting down future communication between you and your parents.
- Be patient throughout your conversation with your parents.
- Avoid raising your voice by calmly stating your point of view.
- Allow your parents an opportunity to share their point of view.
- This doesn’t mean you can’t ask questions! If you don’t understand what they’re asking you to do—or why they’re even asking in the first place—respectfully ask for more info.
- 1 Use proper manners when interacting with your parents. The way that you respond to your parents demonstrates how much you truly respect them. It’s important that you speak to them in a respectful manner. It helps to use phrases like “yes, ma’am,” “no, sir,” “please,” and “may I” when addressing your parents, as well as using a respectful tone.
- Avoid screaming and yelling at your parents, even if you feel like they don’t hear you.
- Don’t make demands to your parents. Remember they are not obligated to do what you want them to do.
- The slang that you use when you address your friends is not the same language you should use when you address your parents. So, terms like “dude” or “chick” and “girlie” should not be used with your parents.
- Whenever you’re ending a phone call with your parents, make sure that you say “goodbye.” Never just hang up without saying anything.
- 2 Communicate effectively. Being able to communicate effectively and authentically with your parents shows that you respect them. Whether you need help or advice, need permission to do something, or you need to share some bad news that may disappoint your parents, it’s important to start the conversation. It’s okay to express yourself and say how you feel so long as you’re respectful.
- Determining what you want to achieve from the conversation can help you stay focused on what’s important.
- Maybe you are unclear about your parents expectations of you. Don’t be afraid to ask them, and be willing to listen without interrupting.
- If you simply need to tell them about something that’s bothering you, and you don’t necessarily want their advice, make sure that you communicate that in the beginning.
- When your parents notice that something is bothering and they ask you, be honest and tell them exactly what’s wrong. Don’t deny it; it will only fester inside of you.
- 3 Acknowledge the presence of your parents. Whenever your parents enter a room or you’re seeing them for the first time that day, be sure to greet them.
- You should never give your parents the silent treatment, even when you’re upset.
- When you are entertaining friends at your house, you will need to make sure that your friends also acknowledge your parents by formally greeting them.
- If you’re out with your parents in public, don’t pretend like you’re not with them because you find them embarrassing.
- 4 Show genuine appreciation for your parents. No matter how old you are, your parents have a strong track record of taking care of you and providing for you. Make sure that you show gratitude for what they have done and what they continue to do for you.
- You’ll want to avoid taking your parents for granted.
- Always say “thank you” whenever your parents give you something, share something with you, or do something for you.
- Let your parents know that you appreciate any sacrifices that they have made for you.
- From time to time, you should let your parents know that you deeply value the lessons they’ve taught you.
- 5 Understand that your parents will have to tell you “no” sometimes, and it’s more than likely for a good reason. You will not get everything you want when you want it. Your parents are entitled to say “no,” especially if it’s for your own good.
- You should not question their decisions or underestimate their ability to decide what’s best for you.
- Don’t challenge their authority.
- Never try to manipulate them into giving you what you want.
- If you ever want to state your case after being told “no,” try writing it out in a letter. It’s a lot easier to process how you feel and explain what you want when you write it down.
- 1 Make your education a priority. You can make your parents proud by doing your absolutely best to get good grades in school, and staying out of trouble. Your academic achievement is one of a few things that will follow you all throughout your life, so it’s important that you take your education seriously.
- Study for all of your quizzes, tests, and exams.
- Don’t be ashamed to let your parents know if you’re struggling with school work and need a tutor.
- Give yourself plenty of time to complete your assignments before the due date.
- Be an example of a well-behaved student, and don’t allow peer pressure to steer you in the direction of risky behavior.
- 2 Take some initiative by getting involved in extracurricular activities. Parents take great pride when you participate in team sports and activities that require dedication and commitment. Whether it is athletics, the marching band, the debate team, or volunteering in your community, parents are thrilled to come out to support you and even brag about your performance.
- 3 Show your parents that you can be responsible. Honoring your commitments, being trustworthy, taking care of things, finishing what you start and doing what you’re supposed to do is a delight to your parents and puts a smile on their face.
- If you tell your parents that you are going to do something, make sure that you do it.
- Be honest about where you’re going, what you will be doing, and who you are with.
- Take responsibility for your actions. You are not perfect, and you will make mistakes. Don’t be afraid to apologize when you do something wrong that disappoints your parents.
- Make sure that you take good care of the things that your parents give you or allow you to use. For example, if they buy you a car or loan you their car, don’t trash it.
- 1 Show your parents that you care about them. You may have heard the saying “It’s the little things.” Telling your parents that you love them on a regular basis can warm their hearts; however, doing little caring things, when they least expect you to, will show them that you truly do love them.
- Do something to surprise them. Make them a meal, do a chore they generally have to do, or do something else that they wouldn’t expect.
- Write them a brief love note, send a thoughtful text message, or give them a touching greeting card on an ordinary day.
- Arrange to spend some quality time with them.
- If they are feeling “under the weather” offer to help nurse them back to health.
- 2 Accept your parents for who they are. Just like you’re not perfect, you’re parents are not perfect either. They are human. They also struggle with various things, and can often be under a lot of stress. You can bring them joy by simply embracing them.
- Allow them to make mistakes.
- Avoid judging them.
- Make sure that you forgive them.
- Encourage them every opportunity that you get.
- 3 Show your parents affection. Teenagers are notorious for feeling awkward and uncomfortable with displaying affection for a parent. But sometimes just a touch can go a long way with a parent. You’re never too young or too old to be affectionate with your parents.
- Surprise them with a kiss goodnight.
- Give them a warm hug when they least expect it.
- Wrap your arm around your father. Hold your mother’s hand as she’s walking.
- 1 Be true to who you are. As much as your parents may want you to conform to the ideal child, you should still be yourself at all times, and be true to who you are. Also, if you’re desperately trying to fit in with a certain group of people, make sure that you don’t pretend to be something that you’re not.
- Be willing to be your own individual without be ashamed of any quirks and unique interests.
- Be a leader instead of follower.
- Don’t ignore your conscience or your instinct, even if it goes against what’s popular or the norm.
- If you feel different from everybody else, don’t be afraid to embrace it and express it.
- 2 Be proud of yourself and your accomplishments. Even when your parents and peers are not exactly praising you or celebrating your accomplishments, be proud of yourself.
- Give yourself a pat on the back when you achieve a personal goal.
- Ignore negativity and discouraging words that minimize who you are and what you’ve accomplished.
- Reward yourself by treating yourself to something special when you overcome an obstacle.
- 3 Be willing to take risks. Maybe you don’t consider yourself talented or athletic, but try out for the drama team or a sport to see if you have what it takes. Most of things simply require practice.
- Write down the things that you want to do and achieve, then post it on your mirror or bedroom door.
- Try. Read the poem “It’s Better To Try And Fail Than Never To Try At All.”
- 4 Do your best. Realize that your parents may have unrealistic expectations and will never be satisfied when it comes to you. In fact, you may already be working hard to please your parents, only to find out that you can’t please them no matter what you do. Just remember that all you can do is your best.
- Decide which expectations you can meet and which ones you can’t.
- Avoid harboring feelings of guilt or shame when you fell to meet an expectation. Always forgive yourself.
- Always know that you’re good enough.

What can we learn from community helpers?
Community Helper activities and lessons encourage preschoolers to think more closely and appreciate all of the people in their community who work to keep them safe, healthy, well-fed, and educated! Use these activity ideas during Circle Time, at play centers, and in small groups. Everyone lives in a community. Some communities are large busy towns and others are small neighborhoods. Children love to learn all about the people who help in their own communities. Here are some ways to engage little learners investigating community helpers.
Why is it important to learn about people?
Recap: What You Have Learned About Social Learning – In this article, we have explained the two types of social learning and why social learning is an important skill. First, learning from other people’s behavior and their resulting mistakes and successes is more efficient than figuring things out on your own.
Second, learning about other people by interacting with them can help you to learn who you can trust and help you to build good relationships. When what actually happens does not match what you predicted would happen, prediction errors are calculated in the brain, and these prediction errors result in learning.
Prediction errors are calculated in the ventral striatum, which the mPFC uses to update the information already stored in the brain. Now that you know more about social learning, perhaps you can think of your own examples of when you learned from or about others.
Figure 3 – Researchers use MRI scanners to study people’s brains. A research setting in which one researcher positions a participant on a bed that will slide into the MRI scanner. Two other researchers are behind a computer screen, where they will see images of the participant’s brain after they start the MRI scanner.
What people do to help the community is called
Ukrainians doing street cleaning as a form of community service. Community service is unpaid work performed by a person or group of people for the benefit and betterment of their community without any form of compensation. Community service can be distinct from volunteering, since it is not always performed on a voluntary basis and may be compulsory.
Why is a family important?
Why is family so important? – The family unit is recognized as the most important social institution whose primary and crucial role is related to child care and development.
- Love, equally necessary for social and emotional development of a child, is received in the family through positive family interactions.
- Family love and nurture is an important prerequisite for healthier relationships later in life.
- Family provides protection enabling an individual to feel protected and free to fulfil their potential.
- Family offers some of the most valuable notions about life and the first role models, primarily through the role of parents, but also through other family members, such as siblings, grandparents, uncles and aunts, etc.
- Although school has an important role in children’s socialization, family is essential to the process. Simply, family provides the first level of education and socialization, as it instills essential and lasting values, which are later transferred to one’s descendants.
The truth is that some of the fundamental family values are actually the bedrock of our society since a family is a small-scale reflection of a society, in its structure, clearly defined roles and duties, rules, and responsibilities.
What is an example of a community helper?
Some examples of community helpers are: doctors, nurses, chefs, bakers, astronauts, soldiers, teachers, dentists, mail carriers, bus drivers, coaches, babysitters, fishermen, plumbers, firefighters, farmers, librarians, and volunteers. Think of all the people in your community who do these jobs.
What should we say to those who help us
I value the help you’ve given me. I am so thankful for you in my life. Thanks for the support. Thanks for all you do.
Why do we need other people to help us?
1. Being around other people makes us healthier. – Physiologically, not having a social support system is actually a source of chronic stress for our bodies, Simon-Thomas explains. Studies show that when people feel lonelier they have higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol,
And that type of chronic stress raises risk of cardiovascular disease and other challenges to health and wellness, Simon-Thomas adds. Conversely relationships can encourage behaviors that are good for us, too (like eating right and exercising). So it makes sense that studies show having fewer social ties is associated with more heart disease, cancer, and impaired immune function, as well as with worse recovery when it comes to those health problems.
Research dating back to the 1970s suggests people with weaker social networks actually die younger (due to any cause) than people who have more extensive social networks. A more recent review of 148 studies concluded that on average having stronger social ties increased likelihood of an individual’s overall survival by as much as 50 percent.
