Parenting Workshop - Olcott memorial School Chennai,July 05 2008

Parenting Workshop – Olcott Memorial School - July 5th

This is a school run by the Theosophical Society Besant Nagar. The school is for the under privileged students. Students are from the near by fishing kupam. Many of them are first generation learners.

27 parents of five year olds who recently joined school had a one day workshop on parenting. In recent times there is a government law against corporal punishment for children in schools  we had interesting debates about should parents beat their child the discussion was interesting about disciplining children. Role of parents in the behavior of the child. We discussed nutrition that children should have.

We did activities that showed teachers and parents were on the same team.The parents seemed to enjoy the meeting and requested for a regular meetings once in 6 months in the future.
