Teachers to focus on trust

ABUSE affects children psychologically and this can hinder their academic performance, says Fiji Principals Association president Vinod Naicker.

Mr Naicker said one of the main things to consider was the fact that many children who were being abused were scared or frightened to talk about their problems.

He said one of the areas they were working on was to build a mutual trust between teachers and their students.

"This is where teachers need to motivate children to talk to them. We want to build that trust so that students can talk to their teachers if they are facing any problem."

Mr Naicker said there were programs in schools to help students identify abuse and where they can get help.

"The Family Life Education program helps children identify the different forms of abuse.

"Not doing anything will make the situation more complex and children might take other options like suicide or running away from home and school."
