Increasing Wellness In Students

I believe that investing in our children’s development from the earliest age is the single most important contribution we can make as parents, teachers, and mentors. Young minds are very fragile and vulnerable, and they are influenced entirely by their environment and the family. Wellness for students encompasses a healthy body, a sound mind, and a very peaceful and tranquil spirit. Guiding our children and showing them a way on this path of wellbeing is surely our moral duty.

I am reminded of an incident when I met a student at his cousin’s wedding. Udit is a father of two and works in Melbourne. Catching up with him I noticed that his eyes became moist and he thanked me. He told me that during our Physics classes I had shared a couple of anecdotes and stories about life and its purpose. Udit took me by surprise when he said that those words left an indelible mark on him and he has since felt very evolved exploring spirituality and philosophy. Coming from a young successful NRI, it was a pleasant surprise and all we could do as two individuals was to share a warm hug!  I realised with great humility that our words, gestures, knowledge, experiences as teachers or mentors go a long way. When and where we leave our impression is indeed a puzzle.

Increasing wellness in young lives should be our constant endeavour and setting an example for them seems to be the best strategy. A determined focus on the value of gratitude does wonders to a failing morale or a low self-esteem. When we guide others on the joys and privileges that we have, we can mould a rewarding habit of being grateful and thankful. It is very easy for children to slip into a cocoon of self-pity, depression, and anxiety. They face many invisible enemies like peer pressure, broken relationships, and performance worries. A very important part of steering them towards wellness and stability is to give them support as patient listeners and non-judgemental guides.

Wellness to me is the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort. Parents face great challenges as they deal with the changing dynamics of kids and the expectations they have. Teachers must play an equally important role in convincing students that however difficult life may seem, there is always something they can do and succeed at.

Helen Keller said, ” Be happy with what you have while working for what you want.” Every journey is a learning experience and students need not feel alone and isolated. Their pursuit of a passion or a goal should be appreciated and even mediocrity should be applauded. As adults our own wellness stems from the spontaneous smiles and responses from youngsters. When the family, the classroom, friends and peers experience life with compassion, patience, inclusiveness, and selflessness then, we can hope for a better feeling of self-worth.

When ‘ I ‘ is replaced by ‘ We’, even illness becomes wellness.

As we feel like there is a shortage of quality schools in different parts of the country so we provide consultancy services for starting a school (Pre-school, K12) in India and abroad. So, if you want the best guidance related to it then feel free to join hands with Shri Educare.

Thank you

Dealing with Sibling Rivalry

“Sibling relationships are like Tom and Jerry. They tease and irritate each other, knock each other down, but can’t live without each other!” – Anonymous

Rivalry of any kind surfaces only where there is comparison and competition. While competition can be healthy, it takes on a negative form when coupled with unfair comparisons. And that is when problems arise.

So is the case with rivalry amongst siblings. The cause for this also remains the same. When parents begin comparing their children, and pitch them one against one another, rivalry surfaces. Sibling rivalry can leave traumatic memories for the children, if we as parents and other adults in their lives are not sensitive to its impact.

At the outset, the most important thing that parents must keep in mind is that each child is unique. They come with their strengths and challenges. Expecting one to match up to the skill or competency of the other is the most hurtful and unfair thing you could do to them.

Accept each of your children as they are, that is what unconditional love is all about. Try and identify their strengths and applaud them for these strengths; recognize and understand the challenges teach one faces, and support them, encouraging them to tr again and not give up.

When children see that you are there for them, irrespective of whether they succeed or falter, they will be motivated to move forward. When the watch you empathise with and support their sibling, they will learn empathy and in their own way provide support to.

Remember, there will come a time when we, as parents, will not be around. When that time comes, it will be the siblings who will provide the emotional support to each other. Make your children appreciate their own strengths as well as those of their sibling(s). Enable them to be sensitive to the difficulties the other is facing. Sharing and caring can only develop if there is fairness and unconditional love in the environment they grow up in.

When they get into fights or confrontations, don’t ignore them, or punish them. Sit them down and have a dialogue. Listen to both sides of the story. Don’t get into a judgemental mode. The dialogue should mainly aim at getting them to voice their anger or irritation. Your calm, loving and non-judgemental demeanour will enable them to hear their own version of the story. Most often than not, they will resolve the issue themselves, because now each one has heard the other’s version of the tory as well.

Explain to them how “He/She started it” is not acceptable. Let them understand for themselves the fairness or unfairness (or “rightness/wrongness”) of their actions/words. Remind them about their ability to make the right choices and decisions. Enable them to understand how these choices or decisions have consequences.

In doing so, not only do you establish an environment of open dialogue and discussion, but also help instill a sense of awareness, responsibility and confidence in your children.

Ignore small arguments between children, these are all part of growing up. In fact, these brickbats are the ones that strengthen the bond between siblings. If you see that they are resolving their differences with each other without you stepping in, let them do so. However, if it gets really bitter, intervene before one of them harms the other – physically or emotionally.

Have certain ground rules – for everyone, parents included. Top of the list should be Acceptance and Respect. When children feel loved and respected, they grow in the secure knowledge that they are valued for themselves. This security prevents jealousy or envy and the home becomes a happy place for them…… despite all differences.

A child cannot learn everything at home so sending them to school to learn real values is really crucial. The highly experienced teachers can teach them in a very fun way. As there is a shortage of quality schools in India, Shri Educare provides services for starting a school (Pre-school, K12). You can even start a high-quality preschool franchise in Gurgaon and provide education to many children.

Challenges Faced In School Project Venture – A blog by Shri Educare


Albeit, starting a school project venture in India is the major challenge in itself, but there are some other challenges as well, which largely hamper the process of building an educational body

With this post, I am going to draw your attention towards the number of challenges which occur at the rapid-fire speed and the ways to combat them…let’s read ahead…

Challenge #1

Infrastructure Planning

For an edupreneur, the infrastructure planning goes haywire when the construction comes into existence since the planning of construction always turns out to be different then what it is planned.

Pro Tip- Construct that much which may occupy the need of the hour and create product differentiation through building elevation and sizes. Include spacious labs, landscape, pre-primary zones, sports, and arrival zone.

With this approach, you can invest saved capital in other important aspects such as marketing, recruitment, and facilities.

Challenge #2

Execution of Construction Plan

It is the second most disturbing challenge, wherein the construction execution is expected as per the vision and design of school project. Meeting construction deadlines is extremely important since this delay reduces the time for admissions and marketing distress. Also due to this, parents lose confidence in the commissioning of school.

Pro Tip– Discuss with your school consultant and understand the school operations and school projects, and with the given experience pick the best suitable strategy of hiring an experienced and professional contractor to expedite the construction execution plan.

Challenge #3

Hiring The Services From A Right School Consultants

Unfortunately, this issue if not taken into consideration seriously, can cause the other factors to get disturbed massively since there is a flood of school consultants existing in the market, who all claim to be offering the supreme services but in fact are the leaders of hollow services wagon.

Pro Tip- You must hire the top and one of the most popular consultants in India, which has the required expertise and the exposure to fulfill your school venture concept, just like – SEL.
