Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
Learning, methodology, pedagogy, results, grooming, development, fee..all are important factors no doubt about it, but MOST important is the safety of our kids.
Incidences of child abuse within school premises are always shocking. They stir something inside you. We as parents feel confused and doubtful when it comes to our child’s environment- but how much importance do we attribute to this factor while choosing a school?
We struggle a lot for our child’s admission.. choosing the right school and the right environment is not easy these days. I have seen people asking on what should be the criteria for choosing the school… well, Curriculum… Methodology… Board…Pedagogy… Past Results.. all are important but, above everything else, keep your child’s safety as the topmost priority or criteria for your choice.
How to assess school safety standards:
Ask: Ask the school representatives about their Child Protection Policies. They should be able to share some documents or if not so, then at least tell you the detail around the measures taken. As per POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offense) act 2012, every school is required to establish its Child Protection Policy. The policy must apply to all employees of the school, who come in direct or indirect contact with children.
Check: Now cross check with the parents you bump into while at the school if those safety measures are in place. Ask them if they are happy with the safety practices of the school? If yes why…if no, why not so? This will give you some clarity. Try to understand how active is the complaint redressal mechanism and how sensitive and supportive is the school towards the children.
Get a feel: Last and most important is to get a feel because here you are not depending on any secondary source of information. While inside the school or around, observe how the kids are managed. See if the younger ones are attended to at all times. Check for the responsibilities of the male staff and how safe otherwise is the school premise. Check how small kids are being handled.. bus safety..etc. This will give you some more clarity around the environment of the school!
Learning, methodology, pedagogy, results, grooming, development, fee..all are important factors no doubt about it, but MOST important is the safety of our kids.. if the environment is not safe for them, everything else becomes irrelevant! So choose wisely!

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
