A question that we always ponder upon is, how can we encourage our girls to be their own ‘shero’? What characteristics must we work upon to help them be successful in life and become versatile and balanced women? It takes effort, compassion, understanding, and patience to develop and hone skills in a child. At The Maurya Girls’ School, we believe in co-parenting and are here to help you raise your kid.

Remember when we were always interested in knowing why, what, where, when or how of each and everything under the sun? The fire in the belly to gain knowledge and learn trivia often erodes with growing up. It is important to understand that this curiosity – the ritual of asking questions must be nourished and encouraged rather than being seen as an annoying habit. Many top-notch entrepreneurs and inventors have evaluated their ingrained curiosity as the genesis of their success. Curiosity should be regarded as the most tangible and definite characteristic of dynamic intellect. Thus, must be thoroughly nourished. There is a popular saying, “Curiosity dimed is a future denied”, and we at Maurya, second it.
Integrity is integral
Don’t wait for a call from the teacher regarding a dishonest act at school to have a family discussion about the importance of honesty, to explain what it means to have integrity. In an ideal situation, your child must be prepared mentally with the ethos of integrity before she is put in situations which are ethically challenging. Explaining and talking about real-life scenarios will aid her in distinguishing between right and wrong. For instance, ask her what she would do if she saw a friend stealing stationery at school or a packet of chips when they are at a shop. Engaging in elaborate discussions on such made-up situations will assist her in understanding what is right to do, even if it isn’t fast, cool or popular.
Assertiveness – a fine line between exceedingly confident or a timid starling. It is imperative for us to impart the wealth of assertiveness to our girls. We have grown up witnessing our mothers and grandmothers maintain absolute silence, not expressing their thoughts and viewpoints. Fortunately, those times are long gone and we need to prepare the kids to be a part of the new world order. The stepping stone onto this journey is for them to realize and absorb the fact they are to be heard and not just seen. Thus, the focus must be on developing self-confidence in young girls, allowing them to be bold and giving the opportunity to speak up, yet being respectful at all times. The parents must explain a range of communication methods, try role-playing various real-life situations to make their child learn and practice how they can be assertive efficiently.
Don’t be so sensitive!
She’s so sensitive! She’s a cry baby! She’s always cribbing! Or even worse- she’s such a girl. Thanks to society, ‘being emotional’, ‘caring for others’, ‘being sensitive’, are considered as traits of a weak person. The harsh reality of today’s society has led our offspring to value their achievement or happiness much above caring for others. Consequently, the norm of scoring better grades than becoming considerate and empathetic members of the community is much more sought after. Therefore, it is actually up to the guardians to persuade and encourage a natural sense of empathy for the living beings around. It is important to understand that raising an empathetic girl will not just be beneficial to the society but also will help them develop higher emotional quotient and aid them in becoming even more successful – as an all-rounded individual. There are a couple of ways to work upon developing emotional quotient of children. Guardians can attain this by expanding the child’s social circle and putting an to engage them with people who are different from them. Also, they must be encouraged to read and watch characters in books and movies who are sensitive, caring and have higher emotional endurance.
