I Blog About What I Know , What I Learn And What I Am Curious About.


For most of the parents it is sometimes difficult to understand the mental health of a child, or some of the parents judge their child on the basis of his grades.

 I have seen when both the parents are working, they get very less time to spend with their child….sometimes the child faces problems with the peer group because of this irrelevant grades scoring competitions………. 

Many of such cases motivated me to write about this current topic. 

Well… I think most of you will agree with me that mental health is more important than grades. It is needed to observe a child’s mental health time to time to provide him healthy and developing environment. 

Here are some points which will definitely provoke you to think thrice before talking  about grades and just grades.

You have to score to compete with this world: 

1. Desire of scoring good grades creates extra burden…… which results in poor mental health.
2. What If, I don’t score good marks……child feels scared.
3. His focus is quantity instead of quality.
4. stress can make him sick.
5. It affects his health, relations and self-confidence.

My Child, always be happy and give your 100% in whatever you do:
1. He will follow his heart.
2, He will feel satisfied.
3. It will improve his mental, emotional, social health.
4. He will become a good human being, who understands others’ emotions, enjoys the happy and healthy life.
