Effective Parenting Book Creates A Splash
Ramendra Kumar, author of Effective Parenting : A New Paradigm conducted a workshop based on the ideas culled from his book at a leading school in Rourkela.
Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm, written by the well known writer Ramendra Kumar (Ramen) has been very well received. The book which is the first print publication of your favourite e-zine Learning and Creativity went into its second edition within a month of its publication.
It comprises Five Pillars of Sharing, Caring, Fun and Joy, Healthy Living and Invaluable Values. The book is based on ideas culled from the author’s own experiences as a child from a broken home, his observations as a writer for children and his own struggles as a parent.
Recently the writer conducted a workshop for Parents at a leading school in Rourkela. The Workshop was based on the ideas culled from the book. Attended by more than 250 participants workshop was a huge success.
In the writer’s own words, ‘The response to the workshop was amazing. A teacher came up to me and said, “This is the best talk I have heard in my life.”
“As you were speaking I could visualise the interactions which my child and where I was going wrong,” was the response of a young parent.
“If I had attended this workshop a decade ago, I would have been a far more effective parent,” told an executive whose kids were now ready to fly the nest.
Clearly I had touched a chord……’
The book was officially launched at Rourkela at the annual district conference of Lion Clubs International earlier this year.
The launch was preceded by a talk on Effective Parenting by Ramen. He touched upon various issues including the importance of spending quality time with children, the need to stop treating the child as a performing monkey, the invasion of the idiot box, the omnipotence of technology and value added teaching.
The talk was well received with the audience asking queries, making observations and sharing their thoughts on the theme of effective parenting.
