Child’s education in school is no less
than a family affair and which is exactly why it is a
JOINT effort of Parent and Teacher. A strong communication
amongst parent and teacher builds the
. basis of caring and fostering of children. It is
exceptionally important that both parent and teacher
understand, that the goals for the child are indeed mere
thoughts at such young age and it is in their hands to ensure
that the children are on the right track towards achieving that
goal in the best possible manner.
Considering the gradual and natural changes that are common in children with age, we should provide age appropriate guidance to satisfy their curiosity and needs.
Often it is seen that PTM’s (parent teacher meetings) doesn’t solve the entire problem and the purpose of such meet, reason being the missing third and most important entity of this triangle i.e. the Student.
GCS initiated with the concept of PSTM,
where all the three stake holders are involved in quality
communication to establish trust as issues pertaining to children
are discussed with great transparency and privacy between
the three entities.
Every child is unique and possesses their independent
skills and differences in the degree of intelligences
(Harvard Garner’s multiple intelligence theory).
It is thereby injustice on the part of a parent or a teacher to
compare one child with another and judge their understanding and
their true potential.
In order to understand child’s aptitude, interest and variations in the degrees of intelligences parents should spend quality time with their children and strongly monitor their daily routine. Parents should share the same with the teachers so that a special care can be taken to enhance the areas of improvement for their respective children.
