School, Jodhpur as part of the Parents' Enrichment Program. Mr. Abhishek Parihar, Psychologist Counsellor of the esteemed institution, facilitated the workshop. Parenting has become the most talked about matter of fact in the present situation. Parents are those who nurture a child in a rightful manner and guide him to lead a proper life. During teenage, Parents serve as role models for their children by being sensitive and responsive to each one and by showing interest in each child and in his/her experiences. Therefore, a good relationship between a parent and a child will facilitate positive behaviours on the child’s part, therefore reducing indiscipline and enhancing positive self-development of the adolescent. Quoting Hodding Carter - "Two great things you can give your children: one is roots, the other is wings.” He spoke about the importance of providing healthy environment that encourage exploration by guiding, supporting, listening, questioning and supplying appropriate information that encourages teenagers.
