Raising children is one of the most rewarding and difficult things that you are likely to do in your life. And what makes it even harder is that they do not come with instructions! The opportunity for social interactions with parents is important for the growth of all children. Considering these facts our Headmistress Smt. Bharati Godse organized an Awareness Programme on “Parent – child interaction which was held on 26th July 2019. Resource person was Dr. Naresh Tambe Psychologist and Psycho Therapist. The programme commenced with welcome note. This was followed with a Doctor’s Speech of introduction of himself and what is the role of psychologist. He made them aware that we need psychologist in various things such as behavior, studying, at the adolescent age, changes in their behavior, for carrier guidance, to understand child’s caliber. So for all this things we need not be insane but we need proper guidance. Then he gave examples of love marriage how at the beginning everything is good but when we start staying together we come to know each other’s faults. Then he gave one more example that when people retire from their jobs but act as if they are on the high post and everything should be still in their control because now they are jobless and then they go in depression. So for all this things we need to seek Psychologist to solve such problems.
The next category he highlighted core problems with children in various stages like Peudopsycholgy where some school are being trapped for fake assessment of their kids’ future. Then with the help of story he came to main topic that parent – child interaction namely
• Color discrimination • Writing and learning disability • Slow learner • Under achiever • Socially disadvantage • More intelligent While introducing these problems he narrated a story of famous scientist Thomas Alva Edison where he was having physical disability. From this story he made aware that we should encourage our kids but not to impose their disability on them. • Never compare your child with other kids. • Never underestimate girls In our social life we think girls are weaker than boys. So to make aware he narrated a story of Savitribai. With this story he made aware that girls not less than boys, they have more strength than boys. So we should encourage girls to be more educated. • Never misguide our kids for wrong cause. • Teach our child to be time bound and utilize it in proper way, so that he/she will be successful in their life. • Children learn through their parent’s behavior. • Respect opposite gender. • He also made aware that girls are more open to change whereas boys are dependent according to their culture and family environment. After Doctor’s valuable speech there was interactive session with the parents and many of their queries were solved. This awareness was very effective and enlighten the parent’s false believes.
