A happy and healthy childhood can ensure emotional safety of our children.
I recently visited a school of underprivileged children and I found happiness even though some basic resources were missing in the school.
The children were needy but expectations were less so they were happy with whatever they got.
I strongly feel the first and foremost criteria for a safe school is to check if our children are happy there.
I have noticed even in play school the pressure is so high. We parents feel, if my child is not acquiring enough cognitive skills they won't get a chance in a good reputed school.Eventually we will fail to secure her future. Hold on.The early childhood age is to acquire social,behavioral, emotional and other life skills .
Isn't it insane to give so much pressure of performing in such an young age ?
I remember it was an evening in 2015, I saw a pre-schooler going for private tuition with her mother. I talked to him and he told that he is not getting chance in good school that's why he came for tuition.
I felt very bad about him. He was just 3+ but started feeling guilty about his failure.
Now how can we expect a high self esteem from him in future ?
So request to every parent,teachers and other well wishers not to force a child to fit in this unhealthy environment. It is a huge mental pressure for them. Rather work on improving the environment of their surroundings.
If you feel the pressure from school or society is unjustified don't let your child to be trapped into that. Instead empower them to speak up the truth and fight for their happiness.
Eventually they will be successful in future.
