Do you have concerns relating to your child’s emotional development and social development, relating to his/her academic performance and performance in extra-curricular activities or about not getting enough time to spend with him/her?
Then, you are in the right place because we completely understand your concern and are here to help you.
But, before we begin, let’s reflect on our and our kids’ everyday lives….
1. Kindness. Resilience. Empathy. Honesty. Respect.
Don’t we want to inculcate these qualities in our children?
Of course, yes!
Then what about the so-called “negative” emotions like anger, sadness, fear or doubt?
Is it bad for children to express themselves?
Or, do we label children inappropriately when they express these emotions?
2. We want our kids to excel in academics, dance, music, painting, sports, and various other extra-curricular activities.
But, do kids really need to attend these many hobby classes?
And even if they do, do they need to deliver “outstanding” results in “all” of them?
3. Parents usually have busy weekdays and taking out time for children is a task. Though weekend might seem to be the best time to spend time with children, we are sure there would be ample of other things lined up already, like a mini get together with your school friends or a grand wedding of your best friend, a big discount event at the supermarket or a long list of teeny tiny tasks pending to be completed.
So, how can you still make time for your children, and not just on Saturdays or Sundays but every day?
Also, while you spend time with your children talking about various things, how do you make these conversations fun yet meaningful for them?
You may wonder that the answers to the puzzling questions asked so far would be complicated.
But with our experts answering them, we don’t think so.
So, what are you waiting for?
