According to Erick Erickson's theory of psychosocial development, the infant is uncertain about the world he lives in, which makes him look toward his primary caregiver for consistency of care and trust. Horror comes alive when the infant learns to trust the mobile phone over his primary caregiver; parents. It means we have lost our ground.
We are more than ever getting wired. It's high time when we reclaim the innocence of our little ones. First we the grown-ups got to refrain from overindulging appetite for technology that has infiltrated our family and social life. Then we will be morally empowered to inculcate the value of meaningful relationship in our younger ones. Let us vow that we shall make our home where caring tete-a-tete is encouraged, where we charge ourselves by engaging in active listening, where we read bedtime stories to our kids so that they drift in dreams of enormous possibilities, where personal edifying examples of parents nurture respect and love for fellow human beings and environment…
The future of our little ones is in our able hands. Collectively we have to create a conducive atmosphere so that they grow trusting in the loving presence of their parents and society. The motto of the school "Lead, Kindly Light" motivates and inspires us to march together towards a brighter future.
