The colonial masters introduced education systems in Republic of India to form clerks and civil servants, and that we haven’t deviated a lot of from that pattern until nowadays. If once the kids ready en bloc for civil services and bank officers exams, they currently prepare to become engineers. If there are some centres of academic excellence, for every of these there are thousands of mediocre and terrible colleges, faculties and currently even universities that don’t meet even minimum standards.

अपने बच्चों को उनके काम के लिए फीडबेक (Feedback) देना माता पिता के लिए व विधार्थोयों को फीडबेक (Feedback) देना अध्यापको के लिए बहुत मुश्किल काम हैं. आप आगे पढ़े इससे पहले ही ये बता देने उचित हैं कि हम फीडबेक (Feedback) को केवल रिजल्ट में मिलें ग्रेड व अंकों से परिभाषित नहीं कर रहे हैं. फीडबेक (Feedback) से हमारा आशय हैं बच्चों को ये बताने से कि उनके द्वारा किया गया एक्शन कितना सही या गलत हैं.

फीडबेक के रूप में आपसे प्रशंसा पाकर आपके बच्चें motivate हो सकते हैं व आलोचना सुनकर demotivated, इसलिए फीडबैक (Feedback) देना इतना भी आसान नहीं हैं.

इन पांच बिंदुओं के जरिये हम इस मुश्किल कार्य को कुछ आसान बनाने में आपकी सहायता कर सकते हैं.-

1. फीडबेक (Feedback) देने की शुरुआत पॉजिटिव पॉइंट्स से अगर करें तो ज्यादा बेहतर होगा, अगर 50 प्रतिशत भी बच्चा अच्छा कर रहा हैं तो पहले उसे उसकी अच्छाई बताएं बाद में उन हिस्सों का नाम लें जहाँ मेहनत करने की अधिक जरूरत हैं.
2. अपने शब्दों का चयन भी सावधानी से करें. जैसे अपने बच्चे से ये कहने की जगह की आप उससे नाराज़ हैं अगर आप ये कहें कि आप परेशान हैं क्यूंकि उसने दूध नहीं पिया, बच्चा आपकी बात को सकारात्मक तरीके से लेगा.
3. जब आप अपने बच्चें को फीडबेक (Feedback) देती हैं तो आपका उद्देश्य आने वाले समय में अपने बच्चे को बेहतर बनाना होता हैं, इसी को ध्यान में रखते हुए past के विषय में बात न करें. जैसे यदि पिछले टेस्ट में आपके बच्चे के मार्क्स कम आए हैं तो आज उसे पढ़ाते हुए ये ने कहें कि पिछले टेस्ट में कम नंबर आए थे इसलिए मैथ्स पर ध्यान दो बल्कि ये कहें कि आने वाले टेस्ट में और अच्छे नंबर चाहियें तो मैथ्स पर ज्यादा ध्यान दो.
4. यक़ीनन आप अपने बच्चें से बहुत प्यार करते हैं और उसे यह कहना या समझाना आसान नहीं है कि उसने कुछ गलत किया हैं, अगर आपको ऐसा कुछ लगता हैं जिसका फीडबेक (Feedback) नेगेटिव हैं तो बिना अपने शब्दों को प्यार या दुलार की चाशनी में लपेटे हुए अपने बच्चें को समझाना ही उचित हैं. साथ ही कुछ गलत होने पर में हूँ ना कहने के बदले “पहले खुद से ठीक करने की कोशिश करों” कहना बेहतर हैं.
5. अंत में ज्यादा तारीफ व अधिक आलोचना दोनों ही बच्चों के लिए ठीक नहीं इसलिए अधिकता से बचें.
