About The Book: Jumping from the top of a mound of sand, you would say, is child’s play. And that’s what 11-year old Nidhi is doing one twilight, alone in the neighborhood making fun of the idioms “a leap in the dark” and “once in a blue moon”. What starts off as an innocuous prank makes the ground slip from under her feet, literally, and she falls into a world called Graria where events and people have tumbled out of a dictionary of idioms. Little does she know that there is someone out there who doesn’t want her to go back…

Self-Esteem has a great bearing on mental health and well-being. Most psychological issues find their origin in low levels of self-esteem.

This workshop aims at helping participant parents increase their awareness of some of their own issues, so as to be more completely available to their children. The session is interactive and draws on participants’ learnings from their own experiences, and helps participants introspect about their own self-esteem and how it was shaped, and then look at ways in which they can positively influence the self-esteem of their children.

The session is being conducted by Maullika Sharma, who is a counsellor with Kumaran’s School and St. Joseph’s Boys High School, and also offers counselling to adults, children, and adolescents, through her practice called Personal Orbit Change.

Date: 2nd July, 2011

Time: 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm (2 hours)

Please Note: This session is open to members and their guests only. This workshop is only for parents. A fee of Rs. 350 is applicable for this event for members and guests.
