Exams and academic performance can be a source of stress for both parents and children. However, the focus on excellence in the classroom and the associated stress may not be necessary. MTV’s Question Marks workshop in Mumbai aimed to change the parent-focused mindset and emphasize the changing world and opportunities available to today’s generation. The event featured speakers, including Shaheen Bhatt, who shared their life experiences and knowledge.

The experts at the event offered some guidelines on how parents can be better parents and help their children be the best they can be:

Don’t Make Academic Success the Sole Criterion

Shaheen Bhatt stressed that parents should not base their pride solely on their child’s academic achievements. It’s important for children to know that their parents’ love and pride are not contingent on being a top-ranking student.

Don’t Impose Your Dreams

Anureet Sethi, co-founder and chairperson of Trijog — Know Your Mind, advised parents not to force their own aspirations and dreams onto their children. Children should be allowed to pursue their own interests and dreams.

Accept Your Children as They Are

Sethi emphasized that when children come home, they don’t want to be judged. Parents should accept their kids as they are and provide support to help them face their challenges.

Avoid Emotional Burden

Aanchal Narang, founder of Another Light Counselling, warned against burdening children emotionally with the parent’s problems. Children are not meant to be the emotional support system for their parents.

Winding it up

In summary, the MTV Question Marks workshop aimed to change the perception of exams and academic excellence, encouraging parents to support their children’s individual aspirations and talents while avoiding undue pressure and emotional burdens. It promotes a more balanced and supportive approach to parenting and education.
