One thing I have been highly successful at – Parenting! It has been an amazing experience for me to watch my children travel their journey of life and reach adulthood successfully. There have been tons of those moments when my son has appreciated me for being his mom. I know that my children appreciate who I am and admire and respect as much as they love me. But then are those special ones which we really appreciate and remember with love.
When Rayyan was in SSLC, he had tough time learning Urdu, which was compulsory for him. He was in a school where Urdu was a part of his syllabus. None of us had been exposed to the language during our school days.
Rayyan is mildly dyslexic and has trouble with languages in general. Urdu and Kannada turned out to be tormentors. He is a good student and follows the rules of schools well. He listens to his teachers and tries to learn the way they teach him. But unfortunately, with all their good intentions, our teachers are not equipped with methodologies which help children with LD to learn a language. In fact, we can say, that they cannot handle a child with different needs.
