As parents and teachers we tend to be sensitive to issues that bother our children, our students. Therefore we try our best to help them deal with their problems and make their childhood / school days happy. Counselling is one useful tool that parents and teachers could use to secure the desired objective.
Counselling is a one to one dialogue between the child/student and a counsellor. It can be done individually or in group. The child (or children) gets an opportunity to ventilate his/her feelings. This helps to change one's behavior in a positive manner.
Counselling is not magic. It is a purposeful, planned activity that could be of variable time duration. It works well when it is a joint effort of the child, teacher, parent and the counsellor. If all these stake holders whole heartedly participate with patience and faith in the process, then the chance of success is extremely high.
