- 3 April 2023
Oakridge International School Bengaluru hosted a Positive Parenting Session with renowned Rajyoga Practitioner and Spiritual Leader, BK Shivani, on Saturday, 1st April 2023. The session hosted by the school’s Principal, Ms. Pallavi Mishra, was held in the school’s campus.
The event was designed to help the Gen Z and Gen Alpha parents understand and implement positive parenting techniques in their daily lives. BK Shivani, an ardent advocate of positive parenting, shared her valuable insights on how parents can raise happy, confident, and future-ready children.
“We have reached a stage where we go online to learn ‘how to nurture my child’. We are moving away from what is natural, innate and intuitive”, said BK Shivani. She further talked about how simple lifestyle changes can balance physical, emotional, intellectual and social health. “Reducing pressure on children is not the option, increasing their resilience is the more important choice that parents should make”, she added.
Ms. Pallavi Mishra, Principal of Oakridge International School, in her opening remarks said, “We believe that parents have a crucial role in shaping their children’s future, and Oakridge is committed to providing them with the necessary resources and guidance”. “We are delighted to have had BK Shivani as our valuable guest for the Positive Parenting Session”, she added.
