    Being a teacher itself is a challenging job in today's world. Teachers in school just act as lecturers in college. They come just read and go. Feel bad about it. Heard abt a school in my place where teachers behave like that. being myself a tuition teacher having a tough time taking the subject for kids. More than the grownups, i feel its challenging to take a subject for kids. Also, the kids parents they make their kids join too many classes. We have to adjust to their timings too. Also, if a teacher adjusts to their timings, we need to bend too badly sacrificing of one's own interests. Also, the parents of kids are nowadays highly demanding. they fix the rules for tuition teachers. A very bad situation i feel. A pathetic situation for teachers i feel.. Gone are those days where we had a great respect for our teachers! Days have changed and we need to accept it and go along... Else, we loose the track.
    Just felt like sharing based on my experience. am not against any teacher or do not pinpoint anyone..Hope you all take it in right spirit. Thanks :)

    True VR - teaching profession has almost lost its charm and respect as the doctor profession lost. Teachers alone are not to be blamed, the parents, kids all are responsible for this. When education turned a business, this is inevitable.

    Dear Viraghu,

    In my opinion, it has always been like that but for a few individuals who remember their teachers well and respect them after they reach higher levels in their careers. Earlier, at least, people had respect for the teachers' time and now everyone thinks their time is more precious than the teachers' time.

    Discipline (unwritten law) was part of the curriculum in the earlier generation but now the teachers have no way of disciplining the children who makes mistakes. Children watch the actions of adults and unless the parents, guardians and teachers demonstrate high level of moral, it would be difficult to discipline the children.

    What you have told is100% true. In today's world parenting should be highly tactful n efficient else we cannot bring kids with high values.. One thing to be accepted is kids are very smart than adults on a positive note. People's mind have become very narrow n selfish to say.... They do not think beyond their circle!! That's the main reason behind.
    Thanks for sharing your valuable thoughts viswa :)

    Dear Viraghu,

    It looks that you are quiet stressed out with your situation.

    Just relax, and look at the positive side.

    I am sure you will find something to make you appreciate your chosen field.

    Don't worry dear. Take it easy. All days are not the same.

    For the time being perhaps you could go out for a movie with your family, or maybe go shopping. Retail therapy is the best therapy. Just leave all your stress aside and take out some time to enjoy.

    You will surely find success soon.

    No worries dear.

    You can come and vent here. We are all here to help you. :)

    Teaching was and will always be a noble profession.

    Being a teacher, I am sure you must be having a hobby of reading.

    Why don't you try reading the book 'chicken soup for the teacher's soul'.

    You will find a alot of inspiring, humorous and motivational stories, and you will develop a fresh zeal to achieve success in your teaching career.

    Best of luck :thumbsup

    Dear viraghu,
    present days teachers' job is stress-filled as well as challenging. There are too many students in a class from different kind of social back ground. In private schools more expectation from teachers in order to keep up the reputation of the school.

    There was a time when people used to say as teaching was the most easiest job.

    People used to say, " mattai meychanam kolai pottanaam," enru. Meaning after making the cows graze threw the stick.
    But now teachers have most responsibility. There are dedicated teachers who sacrifice their time energy to get good result.

    PS
