There was a large gamut of teachers present as the audience. An Interactive drilling was done by the resource person. This made the audience involved, enthusiastic and participative. She highlighted that there is a dire need for a healthy rapport to be cultivated and maintained in the present times. A personal touch given by the teacher to her student is a must. The real education elucidates not only bookish knowledge but also talks about real – life situations and experiences. The negative mindset of the parents directly affects a child’s psyche which further weakens the bond between a teacher and a student. All behavioural problems and patterns seen in a student can be solved through counselling. The teachers came up with their own opinions and shared their thoughts regarding the lack of values among teenagers. Ms. Singh stressed that teachers need to be good listeners and emphasized that there should be a cordial coordination and honour to be exercised between parents and teachers and students.
