Guest Lecture Dr Chandrakant Sanklecha and Dr Nalini Bagul
Teenage is a fundamental stage of life that each human being passes through. Some people face this period of their life strongly and positively, while others face problems and difficulties. This depends on the environment these young adults live in, their parents, their friends, their living conditions, their education, and many other factors. Teenagers face problems such as becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol, being influenced negatively by their peers, self-image and weight, or even arguments with their parents. To provide genuine guidance to these youngsters of crucial age, we invited the guest lecturer Dr Chandrakant Sanklecha and Dr Nalini Bagul who addressed our children of grade 8th , 9th and 10th and helped them in growing up positively.
