Upbringing: State Push To Include Dads In Holistic Upbringing Of Kids | Bhubaneswar News | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

Bhubaneswar: On Children’s Day, chief minister Naveen Patnaik launched the ‘Ama Kuni Pilaa’ campaign under which the state government will give capacity building training to fathers and male members in the family to help develop a child’s brain at an early age.Wishing children on Tuesday, Naveen said, “Children are the source of strength and progress of the country. If children are provided with the right education, healthcare and environment from infancy, they can become great citizens.” Under the programme, fathers and male caregivers would be encouraged to actively participate in a child’s early stimulation for holistic development. They can engage in activities such as storytelling, play and exploration, fostering strong emotional bonds. “Promoting shared responsibilities in care giving helps create a supportive environment, positively impacting the child’s cognitive and social development. Encouraging open communication about the importance of their role in early childhood can enhance the overall well-being of children below three years,” an official source said. The first thousand days of a child are a time of tremendous potential and enormous vulnerability as it has a profound impact on a child’s ability to grow, learn and thrive. “This is because the first thousand days are when a child’s brain begins to grow and develop and when the foundations for their lifelong health are built,” the source added. The major components of this programme are sensitizing parents and care givers on the importance of early years, involvement of father and male care givers through men-streaming (incorporating men into gender and development interventions), engage young children with low cost contextual and child-friendly toys by parents and care givers. Various information, education and communication materials like ‘Mo Bikash Patra’, ‘Kuni Calendar’, ‘Aama Kuni Pilaa’ flip book, ‘Sukhada Lalana Palana’ hand book and ‘Aama Kuni Pilaa’ toy kit have been developed to support the initiative.
