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.
