Online Children's Magazine from India
From the very beginning of life, even before the birth of a child, parents start making plans as to what their child will become in the future. They start the research for good schools as they consider that schools are the only learning centers. But is this the truth? Which is more important for learning, school or home? This question is such that needs a balanced approach.
A child spends roughly 7 hours in a school daily. This time is crucial as he learns companionship, interaction with others, team spirit and a sense of sharing. As far as knowledge is concerned, a child learns more than enough of it in school. But is that knowledge the surety of his learning? Today in a class there are nearly about 40-50 students. So the classrooms are increasingly becoming impersonal such that it is very difficult for a teacher to give personal attention to each and every student. The intelligent students remain in the good books of the teachers whereas weak students are generally neglected so they become the prey of bad companies. Schools and teachers are so bogged down by the pressures of syllabus that they are not able to do any remedial teaching.
Moreover, nowadays the schooling and teaching has become a business. Everybody is after money only. They inculcate very less good moral values in their students. Schools are more concerned with academic studies, results, competitions rather than ethics.
So now here lies the duty of parents. It is the parents’ responsibility to actually show children where they are right and where and why they are wrong. If they have difficulties, parents have to solve them, if they have to finish a lesson left incomplete at school, parents should make them do it. Parents are responsible for the overall development of a child.
The involvement of parents in a child’s life gives him the sense of emotional security. It is generally seen that a child who is having full support of his parents does well in the studies but on the other hand a child from a disturbed family does not do well. Helping children, learning more about themselves and their environment can be a key step in preventing school and youth violence too. Parents want children to be safe, and children want to feel and be safe. Remember to make time to listen, take time to talk...these can be precious moments. Always communicate with your child.
Meet your child’s teacher to know how he is doing in the class. Always take interest in the friends of your child. Be a friend of your child for his bright future.
BE A ROLE MODEL
* Warm family relationships protect children from falling into bad company
* Talk to them and, most important, listen to them.
* Do not always tend to be bossy.
* Spend valuable time with them that includes fun activities.
* Know their friends
* Find out where they hang out and make sure it’s safe.
* Teach them the difference between good and bad.
* Guide them but do not impose your wishes.
After all children do need someone to guide them, and more so in the modern times of competition and fast pace of life.

Dimdima is the Sanskrit word for â€˜drumbeatâ€™. In olden days, victory in battle was heralded by the beat of drums or any important news to be conveyed to the people used to be accompanied with drumbeats.
