Kids App, Lipa Land!

The Playful Box made our day. As we tossed all favorite toys into the box and the kids took turns at picking anyone and hiding it from all other players. My eyes were closed and I picked up a toy. I exclaimed, its yellow colored, has a furry texture and a brown ribbon… What can it be? And Arham proclaimed at my back, it’s my Bunny, the plushie in the box. Yay, and it was my turn to guess now!

Who said kids need those costly games and toys? Even a table napkin can make them

Baby Gift registry

Being a new mom is a lot of work! The last thing you need in addition to that is a pile of gifts you’ll never use. And that’s why every mom-to-be needs to welcome the latest trend of baby gift registries—the most amazing and practical trend for new parents.

Am I giving enough Quality Time to my child?

Am I giving sufficient time to my child? Are his Emotional and Psychological needs being met with the right amount of time he needs? But what is the right time? Being together for 4-5 hours and watching your favourite show or cooking something in the kitchen, while your child is busy playing all by himself, may be video games or watching videos?

Yelling silences your message..Speak quietly so that your kids can hear your words instead of just voice !!

“A year back, we were at a small kids party. Between the fun, we saw 2 kids making a mess out of cheeseling’s. Their mum’s took turns to convince them to stop, but they didn’t, after-all it was fun for them. And it ended with some yelling’s and suddenly everything sounded callous to me. Though I could see the guilt and remorse in a mum’s heart, I saw anger in the eyes of kids. Many days pass

The curious world of Inquisitive Kids : Part I

Curious Kids

“Why is water always wet? Even when it is in sunlight, why doesn’t it dries up? OMG! How to answer that, help me mommies.”

Well, the other day I was bombarded with “n” curiosities by my preschooler, which went on back to back in a loop. Those who are following me on Instagram, would have seen the post. Pondering over where to put a full stop, I was way too puzzled. Few answers didn’t come even with the help of Google search, was it my bad? I didn’t want him to say that mama doesn’t knows … Continue Reading

Gender Neutral Parenting ?

[The days have changed so much, you know, I love pink shirts for my son! And I’m so happy that Gender neutrality is seeking attention in India. Mumma! As we turned to see, her 5year old boy fell from the bicycle and hurt himself, crying vociferously. We all rushed to pamper him. “You are a strong boy, my child, it will all be fine in few minutes..Sob..sob! Why are you crying like a girl? See everyone is looking at you.” That child looks around feeling ashamed and hugs his mom!]

Silence, a deep silence struck me. … Continue Reading

Raising Digitally responsible Children

Are our kids Digitally responsible ?

Its a Digital Era and whatsoever measure you may take you cannot keep children away from Online Social world. But are you raising Digitally responsible kids? #digital #digitalkids #parenting #parentingtips #mustread #onlineworld

We don’t have a choice on whether we do Social Media, the question is how well we do it.”

In this era where even schools have started to follow the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) rule, it is far-fetched to think that we can keep our kids away from the digital world. What gets guardians more concerned is the means by Continue Reading

Effective Ways to Teach Your Child Respect

Effective Ways to Teach Your Child Respect

Inculcating Respect in children

In order to live harmoniously in modern society, a person must have respect. We are all taught to respect other people and be polite in their company, which is a basic social standard and while we may have the very best of intentions, your own behaviour can encourage disrespectfulness in your child. Ask any child expert and they’ll tell you that children pay far more attention to what you do than what you say, and should you scold a waitress or speak your mind where you shouldn’t, you are, in fact, being disrespectful. For those who Continue Reading
