A child is like a clay, the way it get moulds, the shape it takes. And just like clay, it cannot shape itself, someone else has to do it. The potter of a child’s life are his/her parents and teachers. A child spends most of his/her time with his/her parents and teachers and they have a lasting effect on him/her during the growing years. So, if a child gets lost on the way of success it is the duty of parents and teachers to ensure that he/she comes back to track.
Most of the children admire their parents and teachers, they are his/her first idol and they truly want to become like them. So if children have unhealthy lifestyle it might be possible that they have seen it in their idols. The first step towards changing a child is to make sure that you yourself don’t follow the unhealthy lifestyle. Even more children don’t have a fair judgment of right and wrong and so parents must ensure that they are watching and listening the right things. For example-: often television shows stuff that could be easily grasped by children and is quite inadequate for them.
At present times most of the schools have become just a source of income for many. To change something in a child punishment is often granted. But rather the root of the problem must be found out and this can only be done by a teacher. It is only through interaction of parents and teachers that a child can truly learn.
Overall, a child can truly grow and lead a healthy lifestyle if the parents take their child as their utmost priority and teachers as their responsibility to make sure that child grows to be an asset for the country.
