CBSE Official Emphasizes Sibling and Family Love Can't Be Replaced by Screen Time

Himanshu Gupta, the secretary of the CBSE, stated on Saturday that spending time with children is very important and that no amount of screen time will ever replace the true love of siblings and family.

''Times are changing. Before the age of six, our children spend more time on screens than they do on worthwhile activities. Investing time at this young age is vital for a child's growth. Gupta spoke.

Gupta was speaking during the 30th anniversary festivities of the Delhi Public School - Rohini, where he was the chief guest.

''None of the gadgets and (no amount of) screen time can replace the genuine love of siblings and family. Therefore, the most important thing is relationships and it's crucial to dedicate time to our children,'' the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) official said. Discussing the country's future, Gupta said the country looks to the youth as they will build the future and teachers play a crucial role in shaping children.

The 30th-anniversary celebrations of Delhi Public School - Rohini were organized in its senior wing where the principal presented the annual report for 2023.

''Ekjut @ 30 was celebrated in the presence of chief guest Himanshu Gupta; Namita Pradhan, chairperson of the Delhi Public School - Rohini; and special guest PK Tripathi, Delhi Public School managing committee member,'' said Kanika Sachdeva Govi, the school principal. ''In today's times, children are learning faster. There was a time when our children stayed indoors for two years during the COVID-19 pandemic. After that, welcoming children and starting again was challenging,'' she said.
