There are 40 crore kids in India today. Like everyone else they have the right to live with dignity. The episode brought forward the issue of how kid’s are taken for granted, irrespective of whether it is by parents, teachers or anyone in general. Parents and teacher’s especially play a huge role in hampering a child’s morale by scolding them in a fashion which hurts their self respect. Verbal abuse, excessive scolding and threatening damages them thoroughly. When asked, kids stressed on being talked to with respect, no verbal abuse, encouragement, support during crisis and being given the time for playing also. It should be taken care of that even though a little bit scolding is necessary if a child is going wrong but excessive beating and pressurizing affects them badly and might lead to suicides.
