“Children with family issues will have behavioural problem, not performing well in studies, often getting illness, leaving school or home and may also get addicted to drugs,” Venkata Rayudu said.
The CEO, commenting on the grandparents' day celebrated in his school, said, “our teachers conducted a study to know why few children are not doing well in studies. It was found that those children have problems at home.”
