Today, the challenge in front of schools, teachers and parents is alike how to handle / manage children who get distracted with so many external stimulants and lack the required discipline and dedication to pursue not just education but acquire right qualities to become successful in life.
There are no schools yet that teach parents how to raise kids. For teachers the burden of completing curriculum & other activities denies them the opportunity to address child behavioural issues. Schools in turn become victim of tussles and tension between Parents, Teachers and Students.
We address these challenges by bringing in an innovative approach. We empower teachers and parents to effectively "Nurture the kids" without altering their teaching methodologies, syllabus or introducing any additional work.
We have following school based engagements:
Basic Workshop (Individuals): 4 weekdays in a month, weekly once (Monday or Wednesday) from 6pm to 8:30pm for working individuals.
Basic Workshop (Schools): 3 half days spread across 3 weeks, usually on Saturdays but any mid-week day as per convenience of the school is feasible.
Annual Engagement: Beginning with Basic workshop and followed by monthly handholding visits & quarterly half day workshops for imparting new knowledge and offering new tools.
Orientation Session (Schools): It is a 90 minutes Seminar which gives you an orientation about the methodologies used during our workshops.
This session is free.*
Our regular program is spread over 3 days with a gap of a week between each day to practice and apply the learning. It has few generic modules and few that we tailor based on situation or culture or challenges of the institution we are engaging with.
The Program consists,
Future Vision: To take this knowledge to masses we would be using modern kits with audio-visual techniques that will comprise of:
14th November is celebrated as Children's Day!! Yet another day of activities, this one is for kids. Is this what it is and was supposed to be?
When I hear about any such day, I am always reminded of something important e.g. 14th November as Children's day, is actually symbolic. The celebration with and for children on this day symbolises that children are important part of our life and we must pay due attention to them not on this particular day but throughout our life. Same is true for Valentine's Day, Father's day, Mother's day ... in Indian context we can say Padwa,Bhaubij, Rakhi Pornima ... Have we forgotten the significance of this in our life?
Today, the trend is to celebrate on the day and to be forgotten from the next day onwards.
How about trying to understand a child on this occasion? How child develops into an adult and a quick audit on the role of adults during this development. This article is not to give any "gyan" but to get into an enquiry.
Let us first look at the common views through which we look at the child:
So basically we do not have a unanimous thought about child itself, isn't it? At times I wonder do we really even think about it ...
One of the researches about the child development says that the child develops in to his/her own self as an adult in about 21 years, passing through three major stages.
During first 7 years (0-6) (Play group, Kindergarten) the prominent development is of child's physical being to its complete capacity. Within these years they learns their motor movements, eye-hand coordination, hearing skills, voice skills including language and kinaesthetic skills. Basically their physical body develops to its potential.
In the next 7 years (7-13) (first std to seventh std) the prominent development is of their emotional being. This is the time when children express more through emotions. During this period they keep using their feelings & emotions to analyse, judge and control others and also themselves. Their emotional being develops to its potential.
In the last 7 years (14-21) (eighth std to graduation) the prominent development is of their intellectual being. This is the time when the children are more in the space of reasoning & questioning. They keep using their intelligence i.e. their reasoning & questioning skills to analyse, judge and control the world around them. Their intellectual being develops to its potential.
Now if this is the way the development of a child happens what do you think the role of an adult would be? Is it difficult to understand? What do we do in the early age where the physical development is happening?
Do we remain same when they are developing emotionally (7-13) or intellectually (14-21) and what do you think remaining same mean? If not, could this be the reason why we see children becoming non-cooperative, agitated or getting switched off as they grow. Let us look at one or two things.
Do we really know how to do this, protecting the emotional being or intellectual being? Do we get to learn about this anywhere? Unfortunately there are no formal schools to train us on these aspects. However that shouldn't stop us in doing things collectively, isn't it? We can definitely come together and develop some schools which would teach us (adults) how to care and support so that it would build the emotional and intellectual muscles of our children.
