Your mind is working at its best when you’re being paranoid. You explore every avenue and possibility of your situation at high speed with total clarity. As this proverb says human mind have the capacity to change the world if trained properly. So as we all know it is always better to start any training at a very young age so that it stays with us all through our life. It seems, at tender age we have the capability to take up any hard task as our mind and body will be very flexible. Once you grow up we develop our own set of boundaries which are very difficult to break.
So let’s talk about mind especially the mind of a child. Childhood is always supposed to be full of colors and dreams. But not always this belief is true. If we look around we can see many children going through various mental struggle and stress. The reason could be many things like unhealthy family atmosphere, stress at school, wrong friendships, and lack of care and protection and even in some cases mental diseases. All this can ruin the entire life of a child and their surroundings if not cured at the right time.
As responsible parents the first and foremost thing we shall do is to spend time with our children. This is the medicine for almost all mental problems. Kids always require attention and in today’s busy parents just ignore this fact very easily. So I would suggest only one thing, just go and sit with them, make them comfortable with the complex world, listen to all their crazy stories and incidents happened during the day, bring clarity to what they are doing and also make them feel that you are there for him/her all through their life.
Other than issues at home the problems at school also affects a kids mind badly. Over burden in schools in india is the major thing all children are always afraid of. As far as I believe school is the place where a child will get to know what relations are and how to build new one and maintain. So school should be an atmosphere where child is comfortable and happy. Very fortunately in our country there many schools especially best boarding schools in India who propagate the holistic education where the academic burden is reduced and children are provided a very healthy atmosphere to nurture.
Schools like Oakridge The international school in Vizag focus more mental development of a child and for that purpose they have inculcated experiential learning program to their curriculum. These methods can reduce the stress and mental struggle of a child but where medical assistance and care is needed should be made available for a positive result. All these efforts made are after all for a brighter future.
