Learning Activity 2: Self-Speech in front of Mirror: Do a Self-Speech in front of the mirror by following all the formalities and techniques of public speech about the importance of bringing parents in the process of school education.
If the teaching activity only concentrates on children, we can’t attain the social goals of education. The students should get experiences from the parents and other family members like the experience he/ she is getting from teachers and school. Otherwise getting an education aim becomes very difficult.
Womb is the First School
From the pregnancy period onwards, the behaving of others influences the child. Researchers proved that from pregnancy onwards a child absorbs and receives experiences from others. So premarital and post marital counselling and training is very important. Before reaching the school, home is the school of children. So they need to get scientific and systematic experiences from family members. In its absence, the children face difficulties when coming to preschool. If there is a clash in the experience from school and home, it creates tension in the mind of children.
Reform starts in Parents
Any reforms and changes in education should start with parents. Students spend more time in the house than in school. Moreover before reaching school children spend their fulltime in their home. So the character, behavior, personality etc. of parents and family members influence children more than teachers. So reforms and changes should start in parents and family members. So give training and awareness to parents and family members the same as students. Lagging in this fact is the failure behind the implementation of changes and reforms in the education field.
