Sadhana Education Society’s Kapila Khandvala College of Education (SES-KKCE) is seeking proposals from qualified producers and filmmakers to create a set of educational films aimed at addressing behavioral problems faced by adolescents. These films will serve as a valuable resource for parents and caregivers, providing them with insights, knowledge, and practical tips on understanding, addressing, and managing various behavioral issues that adolescents may encounter. Some of the common behavioural problems mentioned by parents are: addiction to gadgets, arguing unnecessarily, temper tantrums, peer pressure, fear of exams, fear of stage or public speaking, bullying, sibling rivalry, difficulty in sharing, low self esteem.
The overall project titled: “Operational support for Roll out of parenting of adolescents program” is being conducted as part of a Programme Cooperation Agreement between Sadhana Education Society's Smt. Kapila Khandvala College of Education (SES-KKCE) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). This partnership project aims to understand the barriers, perceptions, perspectives of multiple stakeholders on parenting of adolescents; capacity assessment and opportunities in form of existing skills and platforms across multiple flagship programs to roll out the adolescent parenting program; and use human centred design approach to test prototypes and subsequently support any larger scale roll-out of the program. The project is dedicated to empowering parents with the knowledge and skills they need to support the healthy development of adolescents.
