St. Stanilaus High School, Bandra – 29th July
The PTA representatives of St. Stanilaus High School, Bandra invited Fr. Leon Rodrigues sdb, the director of AVEC, to speak to the parents on the occasion of their annual PTA meeting.
Fr. Leon addressed the gathering on the topic ‘Time out for Parents – Teenage Management’. He began his talk by highlighting the fact that Parents have a big responsibility on their hands – they are called to help their child venture into the big-bad world; they are called to help their child face the world.This would require that children be treated with respect and love.
He noted that adolescence is a great time and children need to be acknowledged during this phase of their growth. They need to be made partners in decision making. They need to be groomed for mature living and thus be given responsibilities.
Fr. Leon was thanked for his wonderful insight.
