Development of qualities like courage and emotional strength are necessary for creation of confident citizens

Mother’s Pride has a vast network of schools and we have a lot of experience in child education. We have learnt that the main purpose  of a child’s education is to be able to make him a happy individual. The child should be successful and powerful in his endeavours and  should contribute to the society and the nation.
Education should inspire and motivate children, so that they can become future leaders of our country. We inspire the children to  change their signatures to autographs to encourage them to become successful entrepreneurs who can create employment for others. At Presidium,  we believe that ‘education for  life’ has three main components: academics, talent and life skills.
Many schools pay a lot of attention to academics, but the focus has to shift from rote learning to experimental learning. To foster  future leaders, we have to make life skills like vision , mission, passion, commitment, courage, decision making, dealing with problem and dealing with failures are part of our education.
Children should be taught the skill of being courageous, so that they can deal with the most difficult problems without fear. India has a growing rate of suicides because children are not capable of handling failures. Children have to be taught to be emotionally strong so  that they can take success and failures in their stride.
Teachers and parents are equal partners in child’s development and we have to develop healthy parenting environment by conducting  seminars and workshops for them. At Mother’s Pride we train and guide our teachers to nurture the children to be confident and courageous and make them the facilitators of the child’s progress.
It is only when parents and teachers become experts in life skills, that they will be able to set the proper example in front of the  children.
