8 Travel Tips With Babies

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.

The Importance Of Festivals For Our Children

The state of festivals today

Today festivals have been reduced to marketing calendars dotted with ‘Sale’ seasons and ‘Big Discount Days’. While I do think that we know of more local and regional festivals today than ever before, like say for example, Varalaxmi Puja, Akhsay Trithiya, Vishwakarma Puja, Teej and Karwa Chauths etc. over and above the regular Ganesh Chaturthi, Christmas, Id-Ul-Fitr, Janmashtami simply because these are bumper days in the kitty of a marketing head. But how much of our festivals and their importance do we really know? How much of it do we actually know enough to pass on to our kids?

7 Important Things You Must Say To Your Kids

Children look up to their parents for support, for validation, and for encouragement. They look up to their parents to emulate them, to teach them right from wrong and to hold their hands when they falter. So the onus on us to be all that to them is even more than we would like think! It’s an oft repeated statement that we should be careful of what we speak to our kids and what we speak when they are around. It is equally important what we say to them through our gestures and words. Kids are like those highly absorbent sponges, soaking in everything they see us do or hear us say.

Right from the birth through one’s lifetime, body weight is one of those parameters here to stay. While it makes sense from the medical point of view that being obese does bring with it a cartload of health complications, the other end of the spectrum is also equally worrying, especially in the case of kids.
