On puppy love & pimples

From a broken heart to skin breaking out in pimples, students of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Tatanagar, have expert help to deal with teen problems.

Five teachers have been trained to guide youngsters of higher classes during the confused phase in their lives.

The school started an Adolescence Education Extension Programme (AEEP) earlier this month for Classes IX to XII to encourage teens to talk about their worries with teachers. Students from Classes IX to XII are a part of this programme, which started earlier this month.

“At this age, students are inquisitive but are not able to acknowledge the issues. They avoid speaking openly with parents. Thus, teachers have been trained to deal with students separately. They know that a teacher is always near to lend an ear to their woes,” said senior teacher S.N. Basu.

Female and male doctors have also been appointed for teens to understand hormonal changes in their bodies.

“We thought it better that a doctor addresses their concerns regarding physical well being, especially since this is the time they hit puberty. Classes with doctors will take place once in a fortnight. Joint counselling sessions for boys and girls will also be held,” added Basu.

School authorities added that the programme was not just restricted to the students.

Parents will also be invited for counselling rebellious teens in ways that they will listen and take heed.
