In our work as educators, we have had plenty of opportunities to interact with young people and it is indispensable that parents and educators take time to listen to what children between the age group of 11-15 in India are saying today. They do appreciate their parents and elders even if they do not express it always. Here are some of their statements:
- We want our parents to be open with us and share more.
- Please give us confidence wherever we are.
- Teach us the path of truth and share with us everything
- Thank you for saying ‘no’ to us.
- Because of you parents we are here in this beautiful world.
