National or International: Do Children ought to know the daily news?

National or International: Do Children ought to know the daily news?

We have all sorts of technology today. The young generation is indeed flooded (or maybe over flooded) with such technology 
Kids of this age do use this a lot, but how far is it actually 'good'? If you understand what that means, you are a great observer!
Now, back to my point- How many of our children are actually aware of the world around them?
You see, apart from good food, parties, Iphones, and videos and mobile games, there is grey area in this world- that does not look very pleasant.   
A world of hardship, a struggle for existence, success, career, diseases and so much more. 
Kids ought to know....
If you do not make them aware, they will be lost and less equipped for the competitive future that lies ahead of them.
Mama, what this?
Not my boy, but I had an Indian family staying near our house about 5 years back. Their child was only 12 years, but he made it a point to read all the news that came by his …

Mom, This is what I am- Help Me!

Mom, This is what I am- Help Me!


This is one experience I had come to feel and it still stays at the back of my head. I am a mother, but God’ grace I have never a lot of problems with my kids, or even other kids who belong to our same family.
Boys are boys and Girls are girls!
The story I would like to share dates back to a long time ago. At that time, I was working at a hospital as a volunteer. The job was really nice. It changed the way I looked at people, life, and even bodies. Oh, don’t get any wrong ideas about my last thoughts. But it is true!
There was a time, I felt that if a child is born as a boy- then they turn to grow as a smart lad and then into a handsome guy. The same goes with a girl child.
So, once a couple is expecting a child, they go in for medical gender predictions and also the very famous Chinese gender predictor.
Frankly, I feel that sometimes medical tests can fail, but I came across this one special CHINESE GENDER PREDICTOR.
I first tried on my elder cousins, aunts,…

Should you co- sleep with your baby or not?

Should you co- sleep with your baby or not?



A hot question of concern to all new moms or the first time moms and even women who have had their second child.
What’s your opinion on this matter? Okay, all of you who are reading are in some way or the other connected to motherhood. A time to love your baby, and at the same time- we doubt whether we may overdo this love showered parenting. We are all in the same boat!
This is why I thought maybe I could discuss with a few mothers here.
How do you manage putting your baby to sleep?
Now, there are those days, I cannot just come to open my eyes until my lil gal sleeps off.
Seriously, a small toddler could test your patience to the max! But still, as a mother, or grandparent, and perhaps certain nannies- that small gurgle from that baby is all it takes to melt our hearts away.
My experience with Babies
From a very young age, I have been dealing with a lot of kids. I belonged to a large family, where my father and his sisters and their families lived u…

Don’t Repeat That, Jamie!

Don’t Repeat That, Jamie!



‘Give those back to me! You ought to listen to me. Don’t do that, Jamie!!’
The yells and the chase went on and on, and there was no end. Last Jamie asked me, ‘ Why are you after me? You never shout at uncle for this!’
I was shocked, and for a second, I did not know whether I should laugh, or get angry with him- because what he said was true.
Oh, before my thoughts wander off into thin air, I owe to give you an idea of what commotion is going on – in Jamie’s house!
It was the weekend and his dad had gone for fishing with his boy gang. A few of the women joined in, but since Jamie was not well, we both decided to stay back. By the way, I am Jamie' mom!
So, they would be back after four days only. I was relieved to a certain extent, as Jamie could take rest and get better. When his dad was around, he never sits quietly.
Back to Reality
So, why was I yelling at my lil Jamie? I know you would have thought about that. You know children, they are silent when are s…

How I tried to decode the Tantrum Challenge?

How I tried to decode the Tantrum Challenge?


A shout here, a scream and the next thing I see are a string of soft toys being hurled at me. I escape a few and then the last one hits right on my back! Whoa, that did hurt my neck a bit!
Wondering what this is all about?
An old experience I would like to relate to. Before that, I would like to give you a picture of my family. We have a huge family. I mean my dad had 7 brothers. These uncles got married and each one has their own sweet family. My dad was the eldest and I also happened among the eldest of the cousins.
I have one elder brother and one elder sister and by the time I was 12 years old, they went off to study in graduation college. At that time, I guess it was the baby season and I had a lot of cousins aged between 2-5 years old. All our moms had a tradition- to relax once in a month.
Freak out, Moms!
Once in a month, the wives of all the 8 men planned an outing. It could be to the park or a club or whatever. All they did is chat …

Can someone suggest how to calm down a child with tantrums?

Can someone suggest how to calm down a child with tantrums?



Tantrums, is a phase of toddler life that we all have to confront, face and cope up with. So, do you have a solution for this?
I NEED THAT!!!! (this is tantrum zone, and this is all he says when he gets fussy)
The time when you little baby is born is one of the most exciting moment of your life. Especially when you are a first time mom, the moment of realization that you actually carried a baby in your womb for nine months. I really don’t know- it is beyond words. The baby is so fragile, so dainty, so delicate and to top it all- so lovably adorable.
I am not saying this because it happened to be my lil bundle of joy, but any new born is just too adorable. I mean you could stand and admire their toes, finger nails, their facial expressions, the way they go to sleep, smile and my list could go on.
My confession: Till the baby is about 6- 9 months old, that cutie pie is surely a bundle of joy. Now after that, I rather not say!

Love can soothe anyone..So give a little love and it will back in double to you!

Love can soothe anyone..So give a little love and it will back in double to you!



Hey, it’s ok, I am there for you... Remember anyone telling you this? Take you time and think . Over the years, there may have many people, but then if you think a bit more- these sweet words were probably uttered by your mother or grandmother or maybe the lady who took care of you- in your early stages of life.
Ah, yes, now you may have recollected. From anywhere, and everywhere children comes up with some mess or the other and all these mommies hear are, “Mommmaaa!!”
As I had mentioned earlier, I lived in a large family, wherein more than 15 youngsters lived under one roof. Of course, we did not belong to one mother, but this was a joint family family system where the children of all the uncles and aunts- we, the cousins lives together.
Now, what I would bring up here is that- whatever be the day or the occasion, our mothers were always busy. I never realized this when I was young though, but as I grew up- t…
