      As Jane D. Hull has stated,‘At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.’ Our Principal, Mrs Manju Mehra, on behalf of The Modern School, Gzb, cordially welcomed Dr. Sameer Malhotra , the Director of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, Max Group of Hospitals, Max Healthcare toextend a Parenting Workshop . Dr Malhotra highlighted Parenting as an art, skill and a never ending journey. He also mentioned that teachers and parents role are exchangeable in terms of duties. We as parents should make children learn to assert, but should stop them from becoming over ambitious and aggressive. Discipline and learning habits should be inculcated from the very beginning. One should refrain from parent and child conflict, as it involves intense emotional distress and a significant disconnection between a parent and child.  Special emphasis was laid on communication. Communication is not only talking but also observation. One should always observe, listen, absorb, process and express. Parents should inculcate the habit of listening more than speaking within themselves as well in children and not rush into arriving at judgements. Cake should not only be baked well but also iced well to be cherished.  He emphasised that a positive and polite body language also plays a pivotal role in communication. Harmony within leads to harmony in relationships. Parents should maintain harmony among themselves, in order to that their children adopt the same. Parents should give their kids attention and time rather than surplus gifts as there is no replacement for love and care. Dr. Malhotra also talked about two web based surveys conducted during the pandemic for adults and children, targeting emotional stress and lifestyle which showcased 55% adults suffered from anxiety and 27% from depression. Strategic and violent games have caused disrupted sleeping patterns in children.  Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. Hypothalamus, a brain element works in regulating emotions, mood and hormones. He suggested that delta sleep pattern should be followed (11 pm- 7 am) as inadequate sleep leads to a disorganized day. Parents should avoid drugs of abuse as the children take them as stress busters. Dr Malhotra also stated that children should include vitamin N in their life as it will increase their ability to listen to No. Rules and responsibilities should be divided in families and also make the children aware of the fact that no work is small.  We should keep everything clutter free so that our mind also remains uncluttered. Blame game should not be played, rather one should work towards finding the solution to the problem. Parents should highlight the positive qualities of a child while making them aware of their misconduct to strike a balance and give discounts .As Plato stated, “ Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.”  Exercise in any form aids in maintaining a healthy lifestyle which leads to a positive mind.

        Mrs Manju Mehra , thanked Dr. Sameer Malhotra for sparing his invaluable time and being with us ,for the very befitting , enriching , thoughtfully planned Session and concluded by saying  that she was sure Parents would have benefitted by it and would implement his message in their lives .
