In one of my ECS class , I have read this story and found it the good one to share with everyone .  This  story  is  related  to  a  single  parent  children  as  well  as  adopted  children.Families  are  groupings  of  individuals  who  may  or  may  not  be  living  together,  but  are  perceived  by  the  child  to  be  “family.”   Different  ways  of  teaching  are  shown  like:  curriculum  should  include  media  materials  and  visual  images  which  reflects  respect  and  diversity  in  families.  Instead  of  creating  family  photo  albums,  students  should  be  encouraged  to  prepare  collages  of  different  families  in  order  to  learn  diversity  in  family.  On  Mother’s  Day  or  Father’s  Day,  tell  students  to  select  someone  closest  in  his  or  her  life  and  make  cards  or  some  gifts  for  them.  These  kind  of  activities  will  not  cause  any  sense  of  discomfort  to  anyone.  Parents  and  teachers  both  should  work  in  constructive  ways  so  that  students  are  encouraged  to  learn  effectively  and  do  not  feel  themselves  different  from  other  students.
