We have just finished celebrating Independence Day therefore, it is a good time for teaching patriotism to kids, share the concepts of desh bhakthi and national pride. As parents, our main concern is to give our children clear message of what national pride is. Here are some ideas to weave into your conversations, and to show by example.
A first time mother walked in with her 3 month old daughter; looking haggard, tired and quite frustrated. She uttered most oft repeated words, “Doctor, my M has unique sleeping pattern; she sleeps through the day and stays awake the whole night!”
Music, colours and books opens windows where doors are shut. Read more if you want to find out how to foster creativity in children.
Whole world listens to babies’ first words. After all another little being has just made his presence heard!
Little P’s first word was “DA”.
It was a long weekend and we as a family decided to take off to a nearby destination to chill, relax and do some world heritage sightseeing, all in tow with a toddler. My girl loves to travel. She has been travelling since she was twenty-one days old. So I was assuming that I have now mastered the art of travelling with a tot. But no, that does not happen. Every trip of mine is a new lesson in parenting, gives me a new perspective to how she will absorb all the activities going on around her, the innumerable fraction-of-a-second decisions that I would have to make and still ensure we all enjoy the trip.
So here are my travel tips with babies and some anecdotes on how I learnt my travel lessons the hard way and I hope you feel encouraged to backpack your little one for your next travel soon enough. Please do share your tips with me too. Am sure I can learn more.
Are you enjoying seeing your baby growing up into a toddler? I am sure you are!!

Continuing my diatribe on common mistakes made by parents, when it comes to following discipline, most parents err mostly being – too too rigid, too dominating, very over protective.
