CAN PARENTS DECIDE THEIR CHILD’S CAREER?

Ms. Margarete is 38 now and works as an Administrative Officer in an auditing firm in the UAE. She turns out to be a total disaster whenever she handles situations of conflict. In her words: “It’s just this… some clients who approach me behave very arrogantly and my response is not very humble as I am supposed to be.” However, if we listen to her clients or her co-employees, we get a different story.They talk to her in a normal way, but it is often perceived wrongly and leads to despicable responses from her side....

BUTTERFLIES DON'T KNOW ANY COVID !

While I was teaching in MMHigher Secondary School,Thalassery in Kerala, India, a student, who was terribly down with some illness, attended my class after taking leave for a week. "Sir, my disease is not a contagious one!", she responded when I showed my concern for coming to the class even before she was totally alright. "Not because of that. You should have taken some more days' rest to cure completely. I would have given you special sessions to catch up with the portion!" "It is quite boring to sit at home doing nothing, sir! It is impossible for me to pass even a single day more without my friends and teachers!" Though I was ........

Student is Misbehaving… Or?

I too, like majority of you in our teachers' community used to blame students for not able to manage the class well, in the initial years of my career. As time pass by, I experienced myself evolving as a teacher who is having a good command in the classroom. I realise now that, it was possible by gatheringsome indispensable qualities ofa teacher from the field experience.

Adroit teachers discipline the class with encouragement and kind words much more often than shouting, rebukes or reprimands. The objective is to help students feel good about themselves and their behavior in the classroom. .....





INVOLVED EMOTIONS

We often get astonished when we remember some moments from the past so alive that we could see them as a sequence of movie scenes in our mind screen. We know that this occurs only for a few incidents in our life. Very often, we are unable to categorise such anecdotes and we find it difficult to attribute specific reasons for those memories to be sustained immortally. When I discussed this phenomenon with apsychologist friend, he defined them as 'peak moments'. Few examples are: wedding, academic achievements, participation in some stage events, moments of recognition in a group etc. But I can list a lot many other moments which have no such significance in my life but still remain in my mind minutely detailed and afresh. So, it is evident that it is not the importance of the events that matters, but the way we perceive themmakes all the difference. When we try to recall such memories from our school life, there could be many to list – excursion trips, youth festival, quiz competitions, specific moments with friends etc.Strangely, all those memorable moments happened outside the classroom, probability theory does not agree with this though. If at all some are there from classroom, it could be some sweet or sour experience due to some comments from teachers.....
