"The foundation of a child's character is laid in his formative years"
In a day, a child spends one fourth of his time in school and three fourths of his time with his parents. Understanding this
fact, parents should never think that by sending their ward to a good school, they have got rid of
their responsibilities. The parents and the teachers work in partnership for the all-round
development of a child. It is important to teach students to respect school discipline and be
proud of it.

COMMANDMENTS FOR GOOD PARENTING :
- Parents should spend quality time with their children. They should sacrifice their leisure
hours if they want to see their wards fulfill their dreams.
- Criticism of the school, the Principal and the teachers should be avoided in front of children.
Such criticism builds disrespect for the school and the child may find himself in a state of
confusion regarding following the rules and code of conduct laid down by the school.
- The school rules should first be followed by the parents, such as paying fee on time,
attending all PTMs, coming to school on calls from the teachers, the Wing Head or the
Principal. Seeing the parents' positive response, the children will readily accept their teachers'
- Don't be impulsive in pleading your ward's case if a teacher of the school has punished
him/her. Try to know the reason by first talking to your child and then talking to the
concerned teacher or the HM.
- Never say, "We are earning & doing hard work for you; what we have belongs to you". Delay
instant gratification and learn to differentiate between need and want. Raise children in
- Parents should regularly check the bags and belongings of their children at least once a
week. A few children sometimes bring unwanted material to school, so parents should not
mind if the bags / pockets / bottles are checked by the school authorities.
- Parents should never allow unchecked, uncontrolled, unsupervised access to the
internet and social networking websites, especially Facebook, Instagram, Twitter &
Google chats to their children. If the children feel bad about it, let them feel so. Parents
should be firm on their decision as it is a question of their ward's future. Such websites
invite distraction as there is an abundance of objectionable material available on the
internet. Bad is always bad, and bad will make the child worse if he is not monitored and
guided at the right time and the right age
- Mobile culture should not be encouraged during school life. Experience conveys that there is
more harm than good due to mobile addiction. It is a device which distracts most of the
children from their studies. Physical activities such as sports should be encouraged, for the
healthy development of the child. If the children are too young to go alone, their parents
should take them to the playground.
- Involve your sons as well as daughters in household chores such as washing, cleaning,
dusting, ironing clothes, cooking and gardening, which may be taken up for half an hour
twice a week. This channelizes their energy in constructive work and also teaches them
dignity of labour, apart from reducing the aggression in them.
- A careful combination of firmness and leniency should be used. Excess of pampering will be
problematic in later stages of school and college. Over-pleading the cases of wards will bear
negative results in life ahead. They might become sympathy seekers.
- In the wake of deteriorating moral standards in the society, parents should keep a close
watch on their child's friend circle, including tuition friends. They should frequently visit
tuition classes (if they attend) to check if there is a noticeable change in his/her behaviour.
- The parents must keep track of the expenditure of the pocket money of the child and also
help him to develop a habit of saving money. They should refrain from giving excess money
to their child. School doesn't demand money from parents & SMS will be sent to the parents
in case money is required.
- Be patient with your child; never show paroxysms of anger, give off-the-cuff remarks or jump
to conclusions without listening to him / her. Give your child time, advice and love and see
how beautifully you can ward off all the negative thoughts of your child.
