The school had organised an enriching session(Positive and Healthy Communication with Children ) for parents of std V and VI. Dr. Saleel Kulkarni, prominent Music Composer + Film Maker and Dr.Bhooshan Shukla, renowned child psychiatrist were the speakers for the session.
Dr. Saleel Kulkarni through his several humorous anecdotes and vast experience enumerated the importance of story telling and highlighted the positive and ideal way of communication with children. Stories strengthen the child’s understanding of language and allows them to explore their own cultural roots. Stories are embedded forever in a child’s mind. He also emphasized about the articulate use of words while breaking a news to a child.
Dr. Bhooshan Shukla addressed different aspects of social and emotional health of children. He threw light on the virtue of patience on the part of parents and teachers while dealing with children. His parental tip about communication was that while communicating with children we must let it flow more organically rather than keeping it rigid and timely.
The parents attending the program seemed thoroughly engrossed and posed several queries to the experts which were answered in a comprehensive and satisfying manner.
The program concluded with an interactive session with parents.
The session left parents and teachers with a positive attitude.
We thank the enthusiastic presence of parents.
