P4P Teacher.

My students are my children, they are very dear to me, I want to educate them in the best way, therefore:

  1. I will not give physical punishment to my kids, my students i.e., will never hit them. I will tell my life-partner, family, friends and relatives of this oath, that I have taken.
  2. I will never mentally torture my kids. I will never verbally insult them. Mental violence akin to ‘holding toes’, comparison with others and thereby humiliating them, asking them to stand in class, throwing them out of the class, will never commit any such kind of violence.
  3. I will never commit to any kind of physical or mental violence of my students. I will publicly the oath of not insulting my students, at home and will also mention this in my school prayer, every three months.
  4. If I break the rule or commit a mistake, then, will not give excuses for the same, but will ask for forgiveness from the child and will promise to never do it again.
  5. I will see to it that the parents get at least 1 hour of training every month, or two hours every two months, on Parenting and ask them to take oath on the following:
    • They will never physically punish their kids.
    • They will not commit to mental violence. They will not insult their kids.
    • They will talk to their kids every fortnight, about punishments.
    • If they break the rule or commit a mistake, then, will not give excuses for the same, but will ask for forgiveness from the child and will promise to never do it again.
  6. I shall read at least 2 books on parenting in a year.
  7. Will discuss about at least 10% of the students, with the student and its parents about the student’s talents other than academic, and encourage them to pursue those talents as well, once in a year.
  8. Will arrange for training for 2 hours on Learning Disabilities, which, parents of students appearing to be weak in academics and all school teachers will attend. P4P will arrange for the training modules and one of the teachers will conduct the training.
  9. .I will visit the house of all students of my class, every month and will discuss with the parents.
  10. Every year, all teachers including myself will earnestly try to encourage at least five parents to quit addictions.
  11. By the word “kids”, I also mean, my own kids.
