HAPPY CHILDREN’s DAy.
Good morning friends,
Today is the 133rd Birth Anniversary of India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He loved children, thereby, getting the sobriquet of Chacha ji ( Uncle). His birthday is, therefore, celebrated as Children’s Day.

Rabindranath Tagore Quotes ( Rishika Jain.com)
To all the parents all over the world.
I humbly request you not to:
- To discourage your children by negative or hurtful comments.
- To constantly compare them with other children. Just imagine your plight if they turned the tables on you and start comparing you with other parents.
- Use foul language in front of the kids. Their basic learning starts at home. We have to be model parents so that our children can look up to us.
- While discipline is very important, we should not be very harsh towards them. If we keep scolding them for even a minor mistake, he or she will lose self-confidence. The children would be scared to admit their mistakes and turn into habitual liars.
- Some parents expect too much from their children. Instead of letting the children to choose their own career, they force their choice of education and career. And if their child fails, both the child and the mother is convenience blamed. Sometimes, even teachers are held responsible for failing to guide the student properly. This is completely wrong.
- Do not forget your own childhood before lashing out at children. This would drive them away from their parents. We have to be firm but polite in our approach. Let them make mistakes and learn from it.
- We have to teach children to be self-reliant. Spoon feeding will affect their character development as they won’t be having confidence to do even simple tasks.
- Appreciate them when they do well and encourage them to perform better, rather than lecturing them about how you lived in their age. Personally, I feel like we must take our children to visit orphanages so that they could realize how blessed they are to be living their parents who provide them with every comfort.
And now some nasty habits of adults that could affect children:
- Blaming others for your failures.
- Giving lame excuses for not doing your duty.
- Greed for money.
- Bargaining with the poor while shelling out exorbitant money at any five-star restaurant or shopping mall.
- Corruption begins at home. We promise children to give them gifts if they secure first rank in their respective classes. This habit should be curbed because it will create a misconception that we should do our duty only if someone bribes us to do it. The “What’s in for me?” attitude is completely wrong and immoral.
- Promoting religious discrimination and instigating hatred is the most unforgivable thing to do and we should never differentiate between children on the basis of caste, religion, or gender.
And the most important thing is to teach them to be a good human first, then a responsible citizen, and then comes the religion and caste. I wish there could be only one religion, humanity, so that people could stop fighting with each other over trivial matters.
