Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has been appointed ambassador for the Swasth Immunised India campaign, says educating the women will help in spreading awareness about the initiative of child vaccination in the most impactful way.

Kareena told the media here on Thursday: “This is a special and personal project for me because I am also a young mother and Taimur is going through the process of vaccination. But at the same time, I would also like to mention that female literacy is equally important to get success in this campaign.

“Without a mother who is educated enough to understand the importance of vaccination…she won’t take her child to the doctor. And I know it as a matter of fact that a mother takes the best care of a child. So, we have to create awareness among the parents and we need a lot of public support to prevent the future generation from diseases, and have a healthy well-immunised India.”

Adar Poonawalla, CEO of the Serum Institute of India, and Natasha Poonawalla were also present at the launch event.

Some women who were a part of the event pointed out that one of the problems they face is when a child suffers from fever after taking the vaccine. So, it makes them hesitant to take their children for vaccination.

Kareena said: “Yes, a mother can be concerned on such grounds, but you should discuss those matters with your doctor. Educate yourself, trust your doctor and understand that by vaccinating your child, you are securing his/her future from some of the fatal diseases.”

On the importance of the involvement of a celebrity with such a campaign, the actress said: “Well, we can see how the polio campaign is successful in our country where we have managed to eradicate polio from a generation. Thousands of people who saw that Mr. Bachchan (Amitabh Bachchan, the brand ambassador of the polio campaign) was urging parents to take their children for the vaccination, they connected with him, so they thought if Mr. Bachchan is saying it’s important, surely it is.

“Similarly, I am sure that many young mothers will feel connected with me because I am doing this for my child. If my baby is growing healthy after taking the vaccine, it is safe for all the babies.” (IANS)

In order to raise better and more successful human beings, positive parenting is the key as children are the reflection of their parents, experts said here on Friday.

The way parents deal with their children is the key factor to determine the approach children will take towards problem solving, decision making, goal pursuance, handling stress, understanding and managing their emotions, dealing with success and failures and so on, they noted during the ‘Positive Parenting Seminar’ here.

“The worldviews, beliefs and values of a child are implicitly developed and influenced by those of parents,” said Sanjeev P Sahni, Behavioural Scientist and Principal Director of the Jindal School of Behavioural Sciences (JIBS), a value-based research Institute of OP Jindal Global University.

According to Sahni, parents play a very important role in supporting the development of their child during the crucial period of 0-7 years.

These years of child development are crucial to the health, wellbeing and overall trajectory of the lives of the children in a variety of ways.

“Fortunately, there are many things that parents can do to help their children develop and grow,” he said. Sahni also emphasised on the behaviour patterns of parents and consequent influence on children.

These behaviours can be both consistent and inconsistent. There is an adverse effect of parents’ inconsistent behaviour on children and how their behaviours are modeled as a result.

According to Sahni, there can be communication roadblocks, which can also adversely affect the mental health of the child. At home, children occasionally become embroiled in conflict with parents, which is inevitable.

“Helping kids develop healthy confliction skills does take time and a consistent approach. Children always watch how parents behave,” he noted. According to the Social Learning Theory, people learn by watching others.
