10 things to learn from Prime Minister’s teacher’s day speech.

10 things to learn from Prime Minister’s teacher’s day speech.
A must think for teachers and parents.

Values. Connections. Jokes. Facts. Vision. It was all there in the PM’s teacher’s day speech. Here are 10 simple inspirations to take back from his speech and easy to implement by parents and teachers for happy healthy children.

1. Childhood is dying and we need to do something about it. Children are getting too little time as children, they grow up too fast too soon. Let us help children enjoy childhood. Let us keep the ‘child’ within us alive at all times. This will help them grow up as happier and healthier adults. – lets not pressure cook childhood.
2. How many times a day do you perspire? You should perspire at least 4 times a day. Exercise is what today’s child requires to keep healthy. Our sedentary life style is causing too many health issues both physical and mental. Do some physical activity so that you perspire at least 4 times every day. Don’t limit your day to sitting in school, doing homework or watching television. – lets help kids have physical activity in their routine.
3. It is not climate that has changed but the way we are treating our climate. Our attitude towards our environment has changed and thus has lead to change in climate patterns. We need to bring back our reverence towards the environment and soon global warming will be a thing of the past. Lets change our attitude and connect with nature and take our responsibility seriously. – let us practice sensitivity with reuse, refuse, recycle.
4. We would call the moon ‘mama’ and sun ‘dada’. Our culture taught us to respect everything, even the moon and sun. There was a reason for it as it helped us create a relationship of belonging. We need to bring this sense of belonging if we want to leave natural resources for our kids. – our cultural roots make us smarter. Let us go local to be global.
5. Read, read life stories. The more you will read for pleasure the more you will learn. Read life stories of people to get your daily inspiration. It can be that of a farmer, a politician, and a businessman. When you read life stories it is an education in itself. – let us give kids great books and articles to read. Lets discuss such topics on the dining table.
6. Need teachers help to make toilets in every school. Girls are dropping out of schools because of lack of toilets for girls. Lets give girls the basic right of having a toilet so that they are safe and are able to continue in school. When you teach a boy you teach an individual but when you teach a girl your teach two families. – let us give all kids their basic rights and let us make personal hygiene our agenda.
7. In Japan I saw more learning and less teaching. We need to change the way we teach in our schools. We need to inspire even our most intelligent and successful students to become teachers. There was a time when kids looked up to teachers as role models, we need to bring back this respect for teachers. – teachers can bring the respect back by changing the way they teach and parents can applaud schools that teach differently and not just for grades.
8. Teachers must not discriminate. Every child has some or the other positive and negative quality. We need to see the positive and work on the negative and not reject children. We need to stop discrimination and help every child succeed. – stop interviewing children. Respect the hidden ability in each child and work to bring it out.
9. When I talk to kids I get charged. Like a battery needs charging, our souls too need charging. Talk more to your kids and charge your batteries. – lets spend more time face to face and less on facebook!
10. Mischief is good! The PM revealed how he would make mischief as a child and this gives everyone the message that mischief and kids are synonymous. Let us not reject kids because they are mischievous. Let us not take away the fun from their lives. – being naughty is nice so let kids be kids.

A very inspiring speech given by our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi on the occasion of Teacher’s day. I really remember our days of childhood when we use to spend more time playing outdoors connecting towards nature but the present scenario is such children are playing alone with video games, no physical exercise no bonding with nature. so it is very important as a parent as an educationist to think and to bring back the childhood in the children.

10 things to learn mentioned in article taught hundred things to me. It's true, When you teach a boy you teach an individual but when you teach a girl your teach two families. We should aware about kid's basic rights. It is also important to make personal hygiene our agenda. Parents can help children to bring back respect for teachers as they have learn this in their childhood and now it's time to teach to kids. We will have to spend more face to face time with kids to teach these values; but this should be in our mind always that not to take away fun from kid's lives. Let kids to be kids!
