If you are an adolescent, needless to say, your "student years" would be replete with crushes, budding relationships and hormones playing havoc on changing bodies. In a cultural context like India, where discussing such matters with parents might be uncomfortable for many teenagers, reliance on the internet or friends for guidance is common. Recognising this gap, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has taken a commendable step to address the complexities of teenage relationships in its Value Education books for Class 9 students. Users applauded the move for its relevance in today's digital age. The CBSE's initiative includes dedicated chapters that delve into the intricacies of dating and relationships. These chapters aim to equip students with essential knowledge and also go on to define terminologies, such as 'ghosting,' 'catfishing,' and 'cyberbullying.' Additionally, the material covers topics like crushes and "special" friendships through relatable stories and examples.
