PARENTING: IN RAISING CHILDREN, PARENTS NEED TO GROW UP TOO!
Everything has evolved through time. This includes our very own children we often say, “Children nowadays are so different. We aren’t like that when we were children.”
Sometimes as parents we do not realize that we live in another era, and we cannot help but being stuck in the older days. These differences make people, especially our very own children experience a “generation gap”. Parents could not force their children to live similarly like them in their time or raise their children the same way as they were brought up. Parents should keep an open mind and open heart, and learn to accept this. Ms. Sherrie Garcia, Principal of Middle School and High School invited parents to understand those differences through a seminar called “Parenting: in raising children, parents need to grow up too!”
In this seminar, Ms. Sherie shared her knowledge as a mother as well as a teacher from more than 10 years of her experiences. She gave the opportunity to the parents in the seminar to share their stories in bringing up their children.
The differences between the children of today and the past, various parenting styles appropriate for today’s children, including children needs were tackled in this seminar. The problems faced by parents and possible solutions were also discussed.
Ms. Sherrie said that this seminar was actually held by BINUS SCHOOL to educate the parents in raising their children, who are the future successors of our nation. The School is a place to study, but beyond the four walls, bringing up children are the parents’ responsibility. That is the reason why BINUS SCHOOL asked the parents to collaborate in educating the children.
