Children are like wet cement, they are imprinted with all that is taught to them.

Relationship between a
teacher and a student should more be personal than professional. A teacher motivates the students
towards a better growth. A teacher should teach in such a way the students get pleasure from studies.
Students should never try to insult the teacher. Rather, they must be respectful towards them. Attitude of
the teacher towards the students sets the foundation for this. Students should complete a given work in
time and respond positively. This is one of the ways in which to show appreciation to your teacher and
give him/her the confidence in his/her skills.

A teacher alone can't lead to a student to success. "Practice makes perfect" is an adage that will always
hold true.When the student-teacher relationship is good, students grow up to be sincere human beings.

Communication is an essential component in fostering a good relationship between students and

teachers. Talking to a student can help a teacher understand a student better. A teacher should come
across a student as a friend, guide and mentor, empathise with the student by being one like them. Once a
student feels that the teacher appreciates what it feels like to a student, the students feel they are on the
same wavelength as their teacher. Consequently, they will trust their teacher more. We criticise a student's
action but students are so used to criticism that they develop a defence mechanism. We need to make
them feel safe enough to relax their defences and and turn even the most difficult student to into a
positive member of the class. Tips for teachers: Praise students before scolding. Never let fear be your
image but love. Give them a sense of belonging and not empty threats. Avoid comparisons as it is deeply
resented. One must never label a child but try and understand their needs. Keep doing all this and one
would soon find students as a teacher's best friends confiding everything in the teacher.
