Online Classes, Pandemic &Teachers: Stand with them, they are doing their best
Support each other, don’t pull down others
Similarly, when a teacher teaches, they are confident only when they go at their own pace. The ultimate goal of any tutor is ultimately a good result. This is because they are teachers, moreover, their careers depend more on these factors. In the schools, a teacher’s capability is analysed with the kind of appreciation they get from the parents as well as the results they gives. Isn’t it illogical to act as a cosseting parent?
Teach Compassion, Comfort & Kindness
I think instead of helicoptering our child, we should be strapping some parachutes on their backs made out of things like kindness, courage and common sense. If we cosset them, then how can we inculcate a sense of morality or respect in our kids? Instead of being a hovering parent, we need to collaborate and trust each other. The new phenomenon is on either side and both have to mutually come forward and make the situation better to make learning more effective. Today, teachers are suffering from a high level of anxiety and if we talk about mental health, the issue is more serious. At this point kindness, compassion and community engagement are the need of the hour says Dr Sangeetha Madhu, a clinical psychologist. Let us save our children and teachers from becoming a generation of entitled victims.
