Bend Plants, Not Trees

Realization And Acceptance

We have to make them believe that we realize that they are passing through a transition phase of life and this is a normal biological process. We accept their changes and understand their contemporary challenges. The core objective is to continue their participation in the main stream of the society.

Choosing Role Models

Famous people for whatever reasons become role models of teenagers and we can see them following their fashion, hair style and language. Rarely do they know whom to choose and why to choose. If we don’t tell them about Swami Vivekananda and APJ Abdul Kalam then they will be left with options like Yo Yo Honey Singh and Emraan Hashmi. At times, they have to choose among lead or follow.

Acts And Their Repercussions

Now a days, it is quite easy for them to fall prey to unwanted and unacceptable things under peer pressure like smoking, drugs, alcohol, pornography and sexual experimentation. The results can be disastrous on their health and character. Various addictions and teenage pregnancies are a matter of serious concern worldwide. If we can realize them about the repercussions of their acts then they can make a willful choice for the betterment of their physical, mental and emotional health. An open discussion about these subjects can help them develop a better logic so that they can weigh the pros and cons clearly and know where to say “NO”.

Impact On Society

No doubt our youth is full of tremendous potential and their acts have long lasting impact on society hence they cannot be left directionless. They must be equipped with proper skills, strength and sanskar. Remember, what they do today, will impact the future of India.

Importance Of Country, Culture And Gender Sensitivity

Their active participation in retaining our ancient ethics, cultural values, morals, principles and developing new sciences, technologies and methodologies for the progress of the mankind can give them the feeling of a meaningful life. Gender sensitivity is the prime need of today’s youth as so many cases of violence and crimes against women are being reported every day.

We are sure that this program creates an impact on the teenagers and helps them take better decisions in life and live a meaningful life.
