Mom ! Please Bear With Me
- Hits: 21656
I remember my mother running after me with a stick, shouting and saying things like " Are you alive just to trouble me ? or ‘ I don`t know why I gave birth to you ? But never did the words hurt, as I knew and understood the love behind them. Many books, poems and essays have been written about ‘Mother’ and her ‘love’. Parents need to be strict with children on some occasions. But maintaining balance is essential.
Sometimes, in the name of the child`s future good parents and teachers do go to extremes, beating and penalising them. Recently we all heard of a school teacher in Nashik throwing a duster at a student. The child was so scared that he started getting convulsions and had to be hospitalized. It was all over the news channels.
Ultimately due to the recurrence of such events the government has made a provision for an year of imprisonment, the first time, to the person responsible for such violence, and a fine of Rs. 25000/– and 3 year imprisonment, the second time such a thing happens. This will becomes law only after the parliament approves it, but will such a law really bring about any deep rooted change in the attitudes of parents, teachers and students?
In todays competitive world, only if we are able to give our little ones, the right value system, then the dream of our former president Shri Abdul Kalam to make India the future. Superpower will come true. Mahatma Gandhi said that education which is not accompanied by moral values leads to degradation. Sane Guruji saw God in children and stressed the need to place before them examples of positive thinking and noble conduct. Todays child is tomorrows citizen, and every parent must be aware of the need to nurture and support them for the bright future of the country.
