A research paper was presented in Australia by Dr. Deepak Gupta on a study on the perception of quality of parenting practiced by ‘Udayan Care’ in its four residential homes, out of the existing six. Through this research, an attempt was made to study child rearing practices and parental (mentor mothers/care takers) attitude of rejection, overprotection and emotional warmth, as well as the Individual Programme Plan (IPP) on the part of the mentors and a sense of acceptance/rejection in ‘Udayan Care’ children.
Caregivers shared their experiences with one of our volunteers, Ms. Vibhuti Sharma in the workshop held in July while the August workshop was directed towards improving their relationship with the volunteers frequenting their homes.
Workshops aimed at inculcating good behaviour in children and making them understand the importance of following rules marked the month of July while in August, informative workshops commemorating Friendship Day and Independence Day featured most.
