Parenting contributes to a child’s holistic development which includes responsibilities of being a parent enumerated as a caregiver, nurturer, teacher, role model, and a financial provider. Parents aim optimal growth and development for their children that involves giving them adequate biological, emotional, and psychological growth. They take care of the biological needs of their children providing them physical care to meet those needs such as proper food, fresh air, enough sleep, recreation, and to protect them by ensuring a safe and nurturing environment. Mothers and fathers also aim to give their children the best education, teach them about life and the community, facilitate learning since they were young, and guide them to become the best of themselves. They are also listeners, supporters, encouragers, and show their children to be optimistic which foster their children’s socio-emotional development.
So is privacy, a privilege to be earned. The way for your teen to earn more privacy and freedom is by building trust.

The aims of equality policies and procedures in early child care and education is to encourage children and adults to achieve their full potential, making the environment a place where everyone feels valued and respected. The staff working with children should improve their knowledge about culture, beliefs and disabilities, in order to prepare children to live in a diverse society.

Staff and parents meetings should be used also for discussion about discrimination and prejudice concerns in order to be solved and to create new strategies and programme to use for making children understand the equality and
Samantaray (1971) researches on teacher effectiveness have established the fact that teachers attitude and teachers effectiveness are positively related. Examples of these attitudes include wanting to teach and “doing it from the heart” enjoying the work, being dedicated to the job and to the children. Positive attitudes towards teaching and one’s own performance can in my view significantly contribute to classroom success; there is also the positive interpersonal relationship which is necessary to foster a connection between the teacher and students. Participating in student activities, enjoy being with them, caring for them, being interested in them and trusting them displays a positive attitude. Hence the fact that research has shown that “Success in the classroom is mapped to positive behaviours.” Samantaray (1971).
It is important to respect children especially to accommodate to their special learning needs. When a child feels that they are respected, then it will allow them to be able to enjoy learning and want to continue to learn.

Value based education instils educational and cultural values among students and aims at achieving multi-faceted development of a human being namely intellectual, physical, spiritual and ethical development. The values incorporated in a value-based curriculum may include cooperation, responsibility, happiness, simplicity, unity, peace, respect, love, tolerance, honesty, humility, and freedom. The main purpose of holistic education is to prepare students to meet the challenges of living as well as academics. Education can be considered as a means to impart general and specific information; teaching skills and most importantly inculcate values. Education should be a process of acquiring true knowledge.
Another thing I liked that Mrs. Michael did with the students was separating them into groups. The groups the students would go to were based on their objectives of the week. In the classroom, they have objectives for the week, some of the objectives might be to learn a new word, or solve certain math problems. Mrs. Michael let me help some of the students in the groups read or help them solve the problems. I really liked the way Mrs. Michael always encouraged the students, and how the students reacted when she was encouraging them.
All these are linked to health and emotional wellbeing. Because Montessori allow children to develop and nature their sense of wonder, to feel free to explore, to express themselves; to learn to understand, accept and respect different values
