Mountain Mama: The Importance of Ski Lessons

first_imgAfter picking up subs from the grocery store, buying a used helmet, and renting skis, my five-year-old and I were ready for a great day on the local ski hill, or so I thought.We headed over to the magic carpet, the one part of the mountain not drenched in sunshine, but dark and shadowy. The moment my son clicked into his skis, his body turned into a wet noodle. He waited face down sprawled in the snow, waiting for me to lift hum up and untangle his skis. The more I asked him to focus, the less capable he became. My voice had an edge to it as I begged him to just try and stand up. The more determined I was for him to have fun and love skiing as much as I do, the more he resisted.I thought I’d have no problem teaching my athletic and coordinated kid. After all, I had spent a season teaching people to ski, but being a ski instructor didn’t translate into being able to teach my own kid how to ski. Reluctantly I shelled out fifty bucks for one-hour of ski instruction for my five-year old. I thought I was buying some time to mentally regroup and avert the meltdown I could sense was about to overcome my son. I had no idea that in one hour the ski instructor would transfer my limp-bodied-determined-not-to-ski boy into a kid who loves skiing so much he won’t leave until the lift closes.Within minutes of meeting his ski instructor, my son waved me away. He listened to her every word and seriously tried. I went off to squeeze a few runs in during his hour lesson. Forty minutes later I was equal parts elated and terrified as I saw my five-year old and ski instructor load onto the chairlift. My five-year-old who couldn’t manage to stand on skis thirty minutes ago was now headed up the mountain.From a season of well-intentioned parents interrupting the progress of their kid by popping in, I knew better than to interrupt his lesson. Still, I couldn’t resist the urge to watch his first real run. I trailed behind them at a respectful distance. His ski instructor expected more of my son than I would have. She skied out in front and made him scoot himself over the flat sections. She refused to push him along or pick him up, instead patiently explaining how he could do it by himself. She used positive encouragement. Not once did he whine that he couldn’t do it or flop onto the snow in despair.At the end of the lesson, he couldn’t wait to show me how much he learned and we spent the rest of the weekend skiing together. Turns out that hiring a ski instructor was the best decision I ever made on the slopes.last_img read more

PREMIUMJobs law offers tax incentives to attract investment

first_imgThe government is hoping that the new tax incentives introduced in the recently passed Job Creation Law help to grow the economy by attracting more investment and creating jobs.The Finance Ministry’s Fiscal Policy Agency head, Febrio Kacaribu, said Monday that the new incentives, in addition to the ones offered in Law No. 2/2020, could make Indonesia’s tax regime more competitive globally.The jobs law eliminates income tax on dividends earned in Indonesia and on certain income, including dividends earned abroad, as long as they are invested in the country. It also introduces 10 percent value-added tax (VAT) on coal and relaxes administrative sanctions and taxes for foreigners with certain expertise.The provisions in the omnibus law aim to complement several regulations in Law No. 2/2020, which was issued earlier this year to gradually lower the corporate income ta… Forgot Password ?
