Have you ever observed your child closely? When you start observing them you will come across such activities which might appear absurd at first look but soon you will realize that it may become their strong talent. The only thing required is continuous polishing and mentoring to make it stronger. Only school studies cannot help in providing answers to unanswerable questions of children. Every parent and teacher must encounter a lot of difficulties in answering their questions like “Why there are only 9 planets?” or “Why Bitter gourd taste bitter?”
One must be very careful while dealing with children and answering them. Here, mentor plays a very crucial role as they closely work with children to polish them. There are various student mentorship programs where children are guided by a mentor. These mentors provide a unique mix of understanding and guidance to children in terms of so many talents which school and parents must be unaware of. There is a popular and largest online portal that provides student mentorship program. The website of FairGaze Skills Pvt Ltd i.e. www.fairgaze.com will make you enter into a world of three hundred different careers with their renowned mentors. The student mentorship program organized by them charges nominal fees but provides your child with lifetime experience.
David Stoddard rightly said “Getting the most out of life isn’t about how much you keep for yourself, but how much you pour into others.” This is the heart of mentoring. Everyone must remember the learning from the quote mentioned above. It’s not about how much knowledge you keep with yourself but it’s seriously about how much you spread that knowledge to others. Keeping knowledge with you does not produce any worth. It produces worth when it benefits others.
Mentoring is all about expanding the boundaries of children and allowing them to envision beyond heavens. Children should feel comfortable and relaxed with their mentors. They should feel that they are not confined to the rules of this barren world. A good mentor is one who is open to all sorts of questions and ideas from their students. Thus all student mentorship programs consider a mentor good in overall terms. A mentor’s attitude towards a child should be polite so that he/she learns fast. The art of mentoring is not that easy as it seems to be. It’s all about development and welfare of children.
There is one quote “We all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how.” These people can be any from one’s teacher to eminent personalities who inspires one to perform better at every step. These people mentor us indirectly and subconsciously at every moment. Student mentorship program also take children to the horizon where they meet such people who left an impact on them. Many children want to become a dancer just because their dance teacher dances well. Many other children want to become an astronaut when they listen to the story of Kalpana Chawla. This is impact also helps in knowing and building the talent of a child.
Mentors should take an inspiration from character Nikumbh of movie “Taare Zameen Par” and students should take inspiration from Geeta and Babita characters of movie “Dangal”. They very well portrayed the concept of being a mentor and mentoring along with how to be good students. There is one mantra for all the mentors conducting student mentorship program that “Stay calm, become their friend, make them learn and learn from them.” All the students are also advised to grab as much as one can from their mentors. Learn as if it is the last chance got in your life.
