‘Value-based education is the need of the hour’
The upcoming generation has to face greater number of challenges to compete with modern society.
“In such a scenario, imparting value-based education is vital to overcome such challenges,” said Shaukat Perwez, principal, International Indian School-Riyadh (IISR).
He was speaking while inaugurating a session on effective parenting and family health organized by Islamic Cultural Foundation of India (ICF).
Parents should not enforce their wishes and choices on children. “Instead, they should mentor and guide them to choose and build the career of their choice,” he said.
