Abu Dhabi, 6th October 2018: GIIS Abu Dhabi conducted a knowledge series on Positive Parenting with Principal Dr. Heena Rachh, a certified professional on early years, speaking on its different facets.
Dr Rachh shed light on the facts that it is important for parents to spend quality time with the child; be a good listener, show respect and compassion, have tons of patience while dealing with them and use positive yet firm discipline. Discussion also was on how Parents live their dreams through children and over protection by the parent thus denying the opportunity for decision making and self-establishment which worked so well in their own case.
The objective was to discuss about and to ensure how the right kind of environment nurtures holistic growth in children as that would also support the endevours at the school level.
The parents also shared their experiences and challenges they face in turn. It was a very productive and highly interactive session which was well received by the parents. These sessions happen periodicaly and we are confident that it will only help build a stronger foundation for the little ones.
Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Good parenting is pivotal for the child’s growth.
