Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed parents at ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0’, an interactive session held in the backdrop of approaching class X and XII, exams at the Talkatora Stadium in Delhi today (29 January), reports ANI.
Modi said, "I request parents, do not expect your children to fulfil your unfulfilled dreams. Every child has his or her own potential and strengths. It is important to understand these positives of every child.”
“I hope parents do not make the report card of their children their own visiting cards because if that is the aim, then the expectations from children become unreal," he added.
Answering a question on the effects of technology on studies, Modi said that he won't term it as a bad thing and that its good that students are getting acquainted with new technology. He added that technology should lead to expansion of the mind.
He said that exams are important, but cautioned against children facing too much pressure over the results.
He emphasised time management as the most important thing to learn saying that everyone has 24 hours to get things done, but the ones who manage their time best will go through their life effortlessly.
The event’s participants included college students from 24 states and union territories, with almost 675 students from across the country attending it.
