Dalai Lama'sViews on Education, Children's upbringing



January 2007


Dalai Lama thinks that ideally children should be brought up compassionate, caring, peaceful adn tolerant. He or she should learn how to be a good citizen in the ancient Greek tradition.The ideal student , he says, will see his fellow student as his brother or sister.

Salai Lama says that "heart education" is more important that head education.

The Dalai saya that we can raise students who are not fullof fear, anxiety and hatred; but rather are full of"self awareness, anger management and impulse control."

The Dalai has aplan for this which I will go into next. First, do you beleive that this is possible? To what degree? How much outside support and teaching (tutoring one-on -one) would this take? Please give us your opinions!

In other words, if it workd for you, tell us why please.

If it doesn't work for you, tell us why please and what would be better in your opinion.

I say AMEN to more heart and less head education! I personally feel far too much emphasis has been placed on academics and far too little on the emotional intelligence of our children. It has been proven that happy children will "manage" themselves far better and academic results will improve. I teach children aged between 6 and 10 years and even those children who are weaker academically cope better if the teacher "handles" them with heart and not just head!This is not easy, but praying for patience daily helps!  I agree with Bea that children need better models to identify and emulate! As a teacher himself, Jesus knew that SHOWING love first results in love!(1 John 4:19 "We love because He first loved us!) I can't wait to see the Dalais' plan either!
