Celebrating International Women’s Day along with the rest of the world, the Kyong Hungjantaren Ekhüng (KHE), a non-profit association of like-minded educated Kyongs, commemorated the day with a seminar on the unique role of the mother in a child’s education at school and at home, here at LTC Hall Wokha Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion as chief guest, Nagaland social welfare additional director Khevito Shohe said mother’s influence not only the children, but also all around them – the house, compound, neighborhood, and even the house pets and animals.
The chief guest expounded on the beautiful qualities of women by ending his exhortation with a paragraph from a newspaper article which he read recently which says: “Give her the sperm and she will give you the child; give her a smile and she will give you her whole heart; give her the house and she will make it a home.”
Speaking on the topic ‘The unique role of the mother in the child’s education at school’, Wokha GHSS headmistress Orenponi Ezung said responsibilities of mothers include supervision of their children’s nutritional needs and cleanliness among others.
Ezung advised the gathering, comprising mostly women leaders, to understand the capabilities and weaknesses of their children and not to compare their children’s results with others, not to change their children’s schools frequently, not to criticize teachers in front of their children, and to instill in their children respect for others.
KLBC women leader Nyanchumi Kithan, who presented a paper on ‘The role of the mother in the child’s education at home’, said mothers were the first and best teachers of children and quoted George Herbert to emphasize her point: “One good mother is worth a thousand schoolmaster.” Speaking at length on the responsibilities of mothers towards their children’s education at home, Kithan said mothers are mirrors, peace ambassadors, the first book for their children to read, and the depositor of their children’s trust including their hurts and worries.
Earlier, Kyong Eloe (Women) Hoho chairperson Zuchobeni Ezung delivered greetings, while KHE chairman Likhao Y. Humtsoe welcomed the gathering at the commemoration function chaired by KHE vice chairperson Chumchano Kikon.
