Preventive Points from Suicidal Actions::

Preventive Points from Suicidal Actions:

Slide 30:

Frequent interaction of Housemaster with the students to be developed in order to attend to the problems of children on regular basis. Proper regular counselling of the children is to be done to help the mentally disturbed children who are under depression. No student should stay inside the dormitories during class hour. All the dormitories should be locked after the classes are commenced.

Slide 31:

Psychological behaviour of the students should be watched closely in order to avoid shyness, depression, and aloofness of the students, which may cause any sort of unforeseen incidents. Corporal punishment to the students is strictly prohibited. Insulting in public referring to their parentage, caste, community etc. by the teachers will be viewed seriously and necessary action will be initiated against erring staff.

Slide 32:

The education process will be pleasant, attractive, and motivating to the child if firm trust is established between a child and the teacher. The bond of friendship and affection can be strengthened if the teacher understanding and sympathetic. Knowledge of the child psychology will help the teacher in understanding and dealing with children of different abilities, aptitudes and dispositions who come to JNVs from heterogeneous socio-economic background.

Slide 33:

The teacher is the best judge to identify any behaviour , emotional, social,language problem in child and to provide proper stimulus, appropriate activities,necessary guidance, and plentiful insight. Each teacher should be a guide, friend, and counsellor to a child only then he/she contributes to overall development of children.

Slide 34:

Proper counseling should be done either by Housemaster or class teacher/Principal in case of any mistake like stealing, telling lies by the students. In case the student is not mending his behaviour it should be reported to his parents and after giving one or two chances for improvement, necessary action should be taken.

Slide 36:

Student’s problem must be listened patiently, politely and solved. Housemasters should ensure that the students get their daily use items and all other assistances in time. Suicidal tendencies may be deep rooted. Family history plays an important role. All housemasters should collect the family history of the child through informal chitchat with the child/guardian/visitors and will keep a record. They should invariably inform the Principal.

Generally, the suicidal incidents take place due to the child being over protected at home, feel badly homesick, gets disturbed. Unable to tolerate fear of getting fail, fails to come up to expectations of their parents, extreme humiliation by the fellow students/teachers/principal etc. These may be taken care of.

Slide 38:

Vidyalaya should develop a good social, authentic and environment friendly education climate If any child is noticed disturbed, he should never be left alone. His attention should immediately be diverted in an activity of his choice. Awards to good students play effective role than punishment. Children should not be scolded in public on their mistakes

Slide 39:
