New Delhi, July 25, 2020: To enlighten parents about the right mantra to nurture a young mind, a workshop was organised via Zoom on ‘Creating Your Child’s Bournvita Mantra: Building Resilience in Children’.
Strategies like co-parenting, consistent parenting, and giving constructive criticism to build resilience were discussed in the session. Practical and pragmatic solutions for the same were also explored with mental health specialists. The idea of ‘self-care’ in parents was focussed upon so that children emulate the same and build the ability to grow in the face of pressures or threats.
The panelists included the School counselor, Ms Naina Midha, who coordinated the event, and mental health experts Ms Purwai Ravah, Ms Sanjina Bose, and Ms Devika Khanna. The question-answer session with the parents proved to be fruitful. This interactive session motivated the parents as they shared their willingness to reflect on their own practices and strategies after attending this workshop. The event was conceived by the School Principal, Mrs Smita Amit.
