Health Desk- 13 June, 2019: President M Abdul Hamid on Wednesday urged guardians not to put pressure on children over study or any other issue and let them flourish by creating a conducive environment, reports BSS.
“Don’t push children into any ominous rivalry . . . Ill-competition hinders their normal growth,” he told the “Jatiya Shishu Puroshkar Protijogita (national children award competition) – 2019” at Bangladesh Shishu Academy Auditorium in the city.
