Quality and Love - Sweta Thapli


Quality is the characteristic that something or someone has. It refers to how good someone or something is in comparison to others.

When we talk of people, quality refers to the attribute or characteristics that they possess.

Case-I- A student who does a shoddy job with classwork and homework. 

 We can deal with such students by:

  • Finding out the reason- As a teacher, I will try to find out the reason that why the child is not performing well with homework or classwork. Maybe the child is going through some trauma or maybe he is facing some problem at his home. 

  • Praise their work and effort- We can appreciate another child in the classroom who are doing good with their work. Seeing everyone getting appreciated the child will focus on his study and he will be able to do his homework and classwork properly. 

We can also mention their academic achievements to the other teachers and also to the students.

  • Encourage the child- Encouraging a child will help them to achieve good results.  We should always be available to our students for their questions and concern as teachers.

  • Individual time- Spending individual time with the students help them to understand things properly and easily. This will help the teacher to get to know the child better.

  • Limited work- We should not give plenty of work to the students, this loses the interest of the students in doing things. We should give them less work so everyone can do it without any difficulty. 


"Love yourself first and everything falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world." - Lucille Ball

Love is a strong feeling that you have when you like something very much. It is the feeling of liking a friend or any person in your family.

School is the place or extent to which students feel personally accepted, respected, included and supported by others in the school environment. 

It is the psychological feeling of attachment that makes the students want to go to school every day. 

Cave-II Two underage students in a romantic relationship. 

We can deal with this situation by: 

  • Not scolding them for things rather explaining to them that it is the age where you feel attached to someone. But that is not love it's just an attachment. Like:- you love dogs, chocolates, family and friends. You are attached to them. 

  • We can have an individual talk with both of them. 

  • We can have a discussion with the parents. 

  • Counselling can be done to both and explaining to them that at this age you must focus on your studies and your career. 

  • Explaining to them the importance and value of their time and their future.

There's a famous saying by Buddha:

When you like a flower you pluck it, but when you love a flower you water it daily...
