The session was well appreciated by the participants. On Day 02 the topic was: Behaviour Patterns. He helped the boys to understand what conditions their behaviour. He also helped the participants to understand the make-up of the Human Body (male & female). On the final day, Father Parmar helped the boys to better understand 'Friendship' , 'Infatuation' & 'Love'. He also explained 'Human Sexuality'. The boys also got an opportunity to ask questions and clear their doubts on the topics covered over the 03 days.

Father George Miranda-Rector Don Bosco Snehalaya exclaimed, "this is the 1st time I have noticed among these youth that they were glued to the animator and participated fully in the seminar." He further added, "Amrutdhara Don Bosco Animation Centre, Kapadvanj and Don Bosco Snehalaya will have a once-a-month exchange-intervention programme with follow up programmes for all the boys, either through sessions, group discussions, or personal counseling."
