Our Definitions


I was travelling with kids to a farm for harvesting groundnuts. I was with seven kids of age 9 to 16yrs. Kids were

putting down
making fun
showing off
making fun of each other

At the same time, they were not staying with one action. If they were putting down someone, second moment laughing with the same child….But I was staying at “putting down” and urge to correct them, I did not move ahead while they did not stay there.I was pondering – are these terms “putting down, low self esteem, confidence, feeling positive…..” are the terms defined by us and we give our definition to kids? They do not label them right or wrong, they just do and move ahead. But we are left behind with our definitions.

First we give definition, then we create opportunities to correct them and then we analyze the effectiveness of the same :(.
