Sharing notes on WhatsApp a bad practice in parents
Do you encourage your child to get notes via WhatsApp when your child is absent from school? Is it proper for parents to encourage the practice of sharing notes in this manner instead of directly from the friends at the school itself?
In today's generation gadgets have become very essential in our daily life. But such necessities should not be a practice for children or kids. Why I am raising this because today in my child's school a parent asked me to send the notes in whats app right from the beginning of notes without any pleasing manner. I just asked her why your child had not come to school? She Replied "He had, but his notes are incomplete "- with a big smile. Later I just mentioned I will when I am free. But immediately she asked are you working or a housewife? The discussion continued and then ultimately I just escaped by saying I don't have data pack in my cell.
Actually, I do send notes to most of the parents of my kids class but today I rejected because she didn't have any pleasing manners so to speak.
The purpose for raising it in the forum is that is it not a bad practice that we are cultivating in children that if their notes are incomplete then we can copy it from WhatsApp at the time of examination?. If our child has incomplete notes that day then it is our duty to see that our child completes the notes next day by referring to his friends' notes in school. Taking via WhatsApp can be done once or twice or if you are absent from school but it should not be a regular practice to our children. As a responsible parent, we should teach our kids to complete the notes then and there and not keep it incomplete or complete it during the examination.
This is my perception * I would like to know ISC members' views.
