WHY CHILDREN MUST UNDERSTAND TIME DIFFERENCES.
<html>
<p>Sometimes children do not understand that they cannot &nbsp;phone their grandparent living at the other side of world when they want&nbsp;to, because it might be night there and they will really get the fright of their lives if someone phones at night.&nbsp;<br>

It is very important for children to know the &nbsp;difference &nbsp;between day and night. When a child phones grandma at a wrong time<br>
she might just get the fright of her life.&nbsp;<br>

It is so easy if you watch this video. &nbsp;It very important for children to know that somewhere in the world it is &nbsp;day, and somewhere it is night.&nbsp;<br>
We have to teach them that earth turns &nbsp;on an axis and it takes exactly one day to do this which is exactly 24 &nbsp;hours. That is the reason we have different times at different &nbsp;countries. &nbsp;<br>
The earth turns from west to east and, that is why the sun always &nbsp;comes up in the east and sets in the west this will also teach them &nbsp;&nbsp;direction. &nbsp;<br>

In my post I will explain the how the seasons work as this is &nbsp;just as important, but once you understand day and night it might be a &nbsp;bit easier to understand why we have 4 seasons a year.&nbsp;<br>
Some kids have &nbsp;Christmas with snow, but we who live here in South Africa have hot &nbsp;Christmases.&nbsp;<br>
This we will explain when we do seasons but first we are &nbsp;only doing night and day.&nbsp;<br>
The axis of the earth turns at about 23.5 &nbsp;degrees which mean that is not up straight, &nbsp;but a &nbsp;little tilted.&nbsp; Activity for kids.<br>
1.Go and do some research about the earths axis and write a paragraph or tell about it in class.&nbsp;<br>
2.Draw a picture of the earth spinning round its own axis.<br>
Please enjoy &nbsp;learning these small little things when you can, because it will make &nbsp;you understand the world a little better. I truly hope children enjoy my &nbsp;posts because I just love writing them.<br>

So only by explaining this to children will really help.<br>
Have a wonderful day from me.<br>

Don't you believe it, they can go to the UK for their big OE, in their 20s, get the idea to do an E.T. and "phone home"
The phone rings, at 1 - 2 am, a groggy hand picks up the receiver and brings it where the ear might be, not too sure where it is, it is dark, and still asleep.
A cultured voice asks "Will you accept a collect call from England?
Ah, What???? , too late, it is connected, and a bright, cheery voice spends the next 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour bringing you up to date with what they have been up to.
2 kids did their big OE, and neither of them thought of time difference, they just wanted to update the oldies [who didn't really mind, but still pull their legs over it now and then when the chance pops up.

Oh that is so funny I did the same to my parents when we were on honeymoon 49 years ago can you believe it.  We were in Thailand and we worked it out wrongly.
