Has your child been endlessly worrying about his exam results this month? If these are Board Results you're talking about, we can only imagine the kind of stress he's been under! We live in a societal setting that lays way too much emphasis on - “So, what was your percentage?” And no wonder, everything seems to depend on your marks - right from college admissions to friend circles, career plans to what your relatives think of you!
But wait. How much do marks really matter? Will they really decide your child's future? If the answers to these questions seem to be a “Yes” right now, we bet that is going to change. Only ONE thing holds importance in the larger scheme of things. It is this one thing we need to tell our kids to remember...
Beautiful, wasn't that? Vir Das has urged everyone to share this message - with someone “who is stressed, has done well, hasn't done well...or is generally feeling overwhelmed”. Ever since the CBSE Class XIIth results came out, a number of parents have been interacting with him on his Facebook page. They are sharing how this simple message really helped their children see "results" for what they are - not a foretelling or full-stop on the future! Perhaps this reassurance, the willingness to work harder, and a supportive hug from Mamma will be enough to make things just right for our little ones.
