Children are heading to school in a couple of months/weeks across the world after almost 1.5 years. All over the world, child psychologists as well different organizations which are dealing with children are advising that unless the schools are opened up shortly, we would be losing an entire generation of kids to online addiction. That’s the reason why most countries are contemplating opening up the schools at the earliest. But as a parent, we only know the extent of social anxiety that got built up in our children, due to staying at home for so long. …


Especially in the current pandemic stricken world, Self-Care has become the most important buzzword, that every person is talking about.

People keep discussing, how SelfCare is most important for any person, how it's not really selfish to take care of oneself. I am not wrong if I proclaim that a day will not be complete, without seeing at least one self-care post on social media. Since there are so many social media platforms, one gets to see that many self-care posts as well.

Have you ever wondered, why the word self-care has become a real buzzword these days? It’s because…


Have you ever wondered what kind of Parent are you really? I started thinking about this question after I watched the “Yes Day” movie with my child the last weekend. This is a family fun movie based on the children’s book with the same name “Yes Day”.

I am not trying to review this movie here, rather, I am just trying to share my thoughts about Parenting, which this movie has triggered in me.

  1. I started observing myself, as to how many times I am saying NO to my child in a day?
  2. Also, whether I am giving the space…

Last week, I was handling a storytelling workshop for my kid and his gang of friends. All these kids approached me to conduct a week-long workshop, after attending a similar workshop with another blogger friend of mine.

I was under the illusion, that it's going to be a simple storytelling workshop that would keep the kids engaged during the hot sultry afternoons of Chennai (India) and take their minds away from all the bad news and sufferings happening in the outside world. I was requested by most parents to remove the kid’s insecurities about the pandemic and its repercussions.

Are you a Health Conscious parent like me, who wants to introduce your child to a healthy lifestyle by involving him in some sporting activity? In that case, you need to read further before you go ahead and admit him into sports.

If you would have observed, play is the job of a child. He keeps playing one game or another right from the day he was born. When the child is just a baby, he would be shaking his legs, arms, and head to keep himself amused the whole time. There is a reason for that as well. By…


In this fast-paced world, most of the parents are rushing from one task to the other. It’s not that childcare is not in our priority list of tasks. It’s pretty much an important task, which we do attend and complete. But honestly, how many of us can say loudly without any fear that we are present 100% with our kids, without getting distracted by the gadgets or other thoughts.

I was in the same boat till the last few months but learned a big lesson about it, which is why I am here to talk about it. This got triggered…


Vocabulary is an integral part of any language and without vocabulary, there is no development of the language. Then what do you think, we all should be learning and practicing the vocabulary only during our learning days? Any idea as to when and how to start learning vocabulary?

There is no such point called as the starting point while learning the vocabulary. It all starts when the baby is in the mother’s womb itself. As the words and language is an integral part of human life. So where is the need for these special programs to learn vocabulary?

Bonding with the child has become the utmost concern for all the parents these days. Irrespective of whether the mom is staying at home or working, her routine is also as packed as other members of the family. Amidst all those meeting deadlines, and delivering/completing projects on time, the interpersonal relationships at the home front are taking a big toll in most of the families.

Thanks to the International lockdown, we as a family got a chance to understand and relish the family time together. Now that most of the countries are opening up slowly, it’s time to carry forward…


‘The Family Man’ on Amazon Prime has taken the country by a storm and you can see a lot of people discussing and reading the reviews about this Amazon Prime video web series. This blog post is not another review of ‘The Family Man’. I am not going to talk about the storyline or the characters, but going to concentrate on the parenting tips that ‘The Family Man’ brings to our attention.

The entire series is worth binge-watching through the tightly knit story and good actors who assayed their roles with relative ease. …


As a parent, all of us strive to give the best education to our kids. Every parent feels that his/her kid is a unique, inquisitive, creative, hands-on kid and is different from other kids. But are the kids retaining the above qualities which we found in them as a toddler, when they grow little older?

NO right? Then are the kids going wrong, or are we as parents treating our kids in a wrong way, that by the time they enter into schools, their love for exploration and their inquisitiveness gets subdued. Have you ever wondered why?

The reason is…
