A good runner maintains a steady pace from the starting point, a good batsman develops a run-rate to ensure that there is no tension in the last overs, a person wanting to catch a train ensures that he starts early – then why is it that many of us tend to put away studies till the exams are on our head?
This question can be answered if we answer a few more important questions to ourselves, and be sure that we are on the right track. Ask yourself:
The curriculum has been designed for all round growth and to give you a solid foundation to face any type of situation in life. The world has become a global village. You may already be looking forward to going West for your higher studies, to work in the most exotic locations of the world, and to compete globally. To fulfill your dream, you cannot restrict yourself to only the subjects that interest you. You can develop an interest in all subjects by reminding yourself that these will make your foundation stronger, and will help you when you are making the strong attempts to reach the top.
Adopt the following simple techniques:
Adapt Stress relief techniques that are suitable to you, and keep practicing them regularly.
With joint families having become history, it is a pleasure if at least one grandparent is part of a household. There is so much of variety, different approaches to life, value systems, traditions, — and everyone learns more about dealing with life and relationships.
I do understand that at times some elders can be a little cranky or unreasonable (as per our opinion), but tolerating them and accepting their attitude is a small price to pay for overall well-being of the family – particularly children. There are ways and means of dealing with the elders, and there is a great deal to learn from them. It just takes a bit of change in attitude, and becoming open to adapting.
Let us all make sincere efforts to fill in the Generation Gap. Family is our last anchor in a world full of competition, changing relationships and uncertainties about future.

We have done extensive research and experiments on the ways and means of supplementing the social and emotional learning of children of all ages, and are presenting the techniques in our on-line program, open to all adults, named “Certificate in Child and Adolescent Development” starting on 15th May, 2021.
We will not only be teaching you through weekly sessions the practical ways to work with children and ensure their balanced growth and development, but will also give you sessions with qualified and experienced Mentors who will review and guide you every week on the activities you may try out with any child. This learning will be very useful far beyond the current pandemic, and will empower you to work towards bringing up a new generation of mature, sensitive and balanced children who will face the future world with confidence.
