Teachers’ day is observed annually on September 5 in India, commemorating the birth anniversary of prominent Indian academic Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
The day is celebrated on Radhakrishnan’s birthday to commemorate his work, and it is believed that he considered it a privilege.
The Indian academic had a master’s degree in philosophy and attracted global attention to the Indian philosophy.
It holds great value for students and educators and is marked by revelry and different programs planned for teachers in schools and colleges.
The bond between teacher and student is very special, and as Egyptian children are back to school in September, so, it is important to teach kids to appreciate their educators.
Kids are smart and fast learners, here is how to flourish that bond and teach them to be respectful towards their teachers:
Acknowledging the teacher’s presence is a part of the basic etiquette, and make sure the child follows it.
Pay attention in class
It takes a lot of effort for the teacher to prepare for class and make it both informative and engaging for the students.
Advice: make sure you tell the child to be attentive in class and not get distracted while the teacher is teaching.
Teachers can be very friendly, however, that does not mean that the child should talk to them without being respectful.
Advice: teach your child to be humble and polite to their teacher.
Don’t encourage gossip about teachers
Kids tend to criticize and gossip about teachers a lot, starting with their teaching skills to their personal lives.
Advice: parents should address the child’s concerns in case there is some problem with a teacher, however, kids should be taught to refrain from unnecessary gossip about their educators.
Talk to your child about school
In case your child is unhappy with a teacher, do not support their judgment immediately without actually understanding the actual reason behind the problem.
Advice: parents should ask the child about what the teacher did to upset them and try to work out a solution.
A token of love
Be it a school teacher or a private tutor, a token of love from a child can make the teacher feel special.
Advice: Get the child make cards, DIY crafts, bake a dish or write a speech for the teacher.
