Parenting Counseling Session
“Education is about awakening. The awakening parent’s steps back and allow their child’s spirit to unfold.”
Parents / guardians fulfill a primary role in the lives of their children. In the best interest of its students, Delhi Public School, Ranchi organized a seminar on ‘From unconscious parenting to conscious parenting’ to help the parents understand the issues faced by their children and give them suggestions to deal with the issues at hand in the most effective manner. It was a customized seminar organized separately for the parents of Prep-V grade.
The resource persons of the session were Mrs. Naaz Khan and Mr. J.K. Sinha of a counseling organization Vikalp, Bokaro.
The programme started with an interactive session with the Principal Dr. Ram Singh where the parents shared their views, problems, concerns and suggestions.
The session began with the questions “What are your hopes from your child?” and “What do you do for your child?”. With help of these questions the parents were asked to know and analyze what they know and understand about themselves and their child. The parents were also asked not to panic on their child’s changed behavior as it is the part of growing.
During the session the parents were encouraged to help their children develop confidence, creativity and build character. The parents were told to encourage their children instead of saying “you can’t”. They also insisted to raise the potential of the child through physical, emotional, and spiritual development. In order to do so the parents were educated to follow some remedies such as to teach the children to be happy and positive in life. They also urged the parents to become mindful of their behavior, engage with the children and connect with their emotional needs.
During the session with the help of several activities and stories the parents were helped to understand the basic nature of the child and then contour their style to meet the temperament of the child. They asserted that the parenting is an art and unconscious parents carry emotional baggage and have not raised themselves to the level they need to, to raise another spiritual being – a child.
Dr. Ram Singh the principal of the school exhorted that each and every child is unique and special. DPS Ranchi believes in the collaboration with parents to create successful and happy human beings. Our children pay a heavy price when we lack consciousness, despite our best intentions. Such seminars bring awareness and enlighten us.
At the session parents shared their views and said that this session has illuminated them and helped them to realize how as parents they can have authentic conversations and develop new practices designed to transform their ties with their children.
