The child himself also never fails to create learning opportunities for himself. For instance, he is a German class student but learned French from a friend who is a French student. He is also a self-taught guru of Spanish counting.
The Golden Parenting tips that his parents apply-
Mr. Pinank Doshi(Father) & Mrs. Mitali (Mother)- “Do not compare your child with anyone else, every child is unique!” she further added that parents should not put any pressure on them to excel and understand that “Sun shines in its own time during the day and Moon shines in its own time during night”. Thus every child shines in his/her own time.
They also added “Parents are a child’s first teacher and mentor, be a good role model for them. Children do as you do and your child watches you get clues on how to behave in the world, so use your behavior to guide him/her. What you do is often much more important than what you say. If you want your child to say ‘please’, ‘sorry’, ‘Thank you or something else which is good say it yourself first or do it yourself first. Also if you don’t want your child to raise his/her voice, speak politely, quietly, or gently yourself. Make time for your kids and make communication a priority. Discover your child’s strengths. Work on your child’s weaknesses. Teach your child to make his/her weakness as his/her strength. Teach them never to give up attitude. Playing games and having fun with your child can help your child feel happier, be more relaxed and build resilience. Sharing special times can be great for you too it’s your chance to be a kid again and have fun with them. Sharing happy experiences helps to build your relationship with your child. Get down to your child’s level. Always encourage your child to tell truth and the importance of honesty is always the best policy. Don’t follow physical punishment. Praise and encouragement are always needed. Praise your child for his strengths and praise efforts as well as an achievement. Teach them winning is good but losing is also a part and more than winning, participation is most important, and not giving up is more valuable. Correct them for their mistakes. Don’t try to hide it or stand for the wrong. Don’t compare your child to others. Every child is unique and every child has its calibre and capabilities. Comparing them to others will itself make them lose their battle and their morale and self-esteem will become very low. Don’t compare and asked them to be someone’s copy and tells them be themselves. Give your support when they need it the most. Always speak positively and use positive affirmations. If they do good then give those rewards and privileges. Teach them discipline and the value of time and money. Teach your child to have goals and be ambitious. Love them unconditionally and hug them always”.
In the end, through our platform, his parents want to thank his school’s Founder Principal Dr. R. Varadarajan Sir and Head of school Primrose Ma’am for providing children many opportunities to explore their talents and bring out the best in them.
