 Parenting is not as simple as it was before. The challenges are increasing by the day. Keeping in view the increasing difficulties in bringing up children, the School organized a special orientation programme for the parents of Grades V-VI on the topic ‘Dynamic Parenting’.
The programme was conducted by two renowned life coaches from CoachGrab. CoachGrab is a team of highly enthusiastic, internationally certified and professionally trained life coaches from various parts of the World. Their distinguished resource persons, Mr. Alok Sood and Ms. Kamna Raj Aggarwala gave guidelines of vital importance to the parents. Mr. Alok Sood who belongs to Mumbai has been mentoring and coaching in professional work environments for over 15 years. He has served in all aspects of mining business, with global experience at the CEO and Directorial levels. Ms. Kamna Raj Agarwalla is a certified Empowerment Life Coach. She runs an NGO - Edumust, to help improve education and health of 600 underprivileged village children.
The distinguished resource persons, discussed at length the growing difficulties of bringing up children in the present scenario and how these problems could be dealt with. They mentioned certain general issues between parents and children and suggested how parents could handle them smartly. They acknowledged the fact that parents today should not just be mentors to their children but also become their best friends. 
The one hour session was very helpful in enlightening the parents. The parents came up with queries which were answered patiently and effectively. The Vice Chairperson Mrs. Neerza Mayor and the Principal Mr. J.S. Hundal , who themselves attended the session , were impressed by the effective tips given by the eminent resource persons. The parents suggested that such orientation programs must be arranged for the parents with children of all age groups. They even mentioned that whatever they had learnt from these life coaches would be very beneficial in fostering a better relationship between them and their children.
