    “helping them make good decisions especially when we are not around to (do their thinking for them) guide them.” – Vidya ma’am, thank you for this post. Even as I make my toddler choose between blue socks and brown, I know I am laying the foundation of decision-making, choosing the appropriate and rejecting the irrelevant. It is true that I do not want to do his thinking for him, but I know that when he learns by example/experience he will know who to pick to be the voice in his head – even if it’s his own. And I can hardly wait for a day when he’ll come to me and say with full conviction – ‘Don’t worry. I know!’ :)

    Imparting life skills are truly important but life often has different plans and no amount of training on due diligence, the importance of making the right decision etc, will ensure that your child makes the right decision…..

      True, Sunita. Yet, preparation and practice do not go waste. :-) Thank you for your comment!

    Your posts always open new doors of learning for me as a parent. Of course, I agree that decision making is a very important life skill and must be inculcated from a very young age. Your tips have been noted for future reference. In fact, you know, we sometimes ask our 2-year-old in the store to choose between things. May be it is a small step but I just hope it works out well in the long run :-)
