ADDRESSING PARENT CHILD RELATIONSHIP & MENTAL HEALTH
BONG, CHIBBO & PUDUNG KALIMPONG
The pandemic that lasted for more than 24 months has had dramatic changes in the lives of families- parents and children alike. GFF Helps representatives felt the need for a session that would help promote healthy socialization as well as support effective behavior of children and families. Ms. Dechen Y. Bhutia, a psychologist at Army Public School Kalimpong facilitated the session. The main aim of the session was:
- to help parents understand their own roles and responsibilities
- to maximize positive outcome for children and their families
- to help parents understand their children’s individual needs and development
The target group for the session were parents of Bong, Chibbo and Pudung villages, that was held on the 13th of May, 19th of May and 20th of May respectively. The session was rewarding as many doubts were cleared and clarifications made.
‘I thought I could control my child in every way possible, but this session opened my eye. I am truly grateful for attending this session.’
