Slow Down Time

Image
Whether we're working moms or home managers, life goes on in full swing from morning till night. 
And life gets all the more tough when we've kids. We've to manage home, work, and kids. And each work seems important and urgent to us. 
Day by day, we get into the trap of stress for not being able to give our 100% in everything.
Self care usually seems unimportant on our to-do list.
What is slow-down time?
Slow down time should not be mistaken as a separate time for self care, as it is an integral part of that. Slow down time means pausing for some moments, and enjoying what we're doing. For example,
Look at the joy in your child's eyes while giving her a bath.Savor the taste of your tea while you're doing chores alongside.Feel the morning freshness for a minute or two through open windows.Smilingly look into the eyes of your child while dropping her at school.Touch leaves while going to park/office. Nature gives enormous positive energy.Look at the birds for a fe…

Why don't kids like to sit still in classrooms?

Image
This blog is intended to bring into light a very common problem being faced by most parents and teachers in school.

"Why don't the kids sit still?"
I've finally found the answer to this question after reading a lot, which I'd like to share with all the parents and teachers.
Problems being faced by parents and teachers
Many parents get a feedback from their kid's teacher that she/he doesn't sit still in class. They talk to each other or look elsewhere when the teacher asks them to look in the front.We parents, at home too, face this problem when we ask our kids to study. They give hundreds of excuses when we ask them to sit and study.Kids are more interested in playing outside for hours. But it's difficult for parents to be out with them for too long because of too hectic schedules, and we can't leave them alone outside. Teachers are bound by the daily time schedules, and so the kids can't play outside everyday in school too. When we look at the sit…

My Dad always says "Money is important, but not more than family and health." He's the most stress free person. Always cool minded, no matter how big the life's problem is. This is what I've learned from my Dad, which I try to implement in my life everyday:




Listen to everyone, but do as your heart says - As we grow up and move outside our home for school/college/jobs/marriage, we meet so many people who've different beliefs than ours. They'll tell us that we're wrong, and we need to change. We can't openly defy some of them, so it's better to keep quiet (not at all times), and later do what your heart says is good for you.Take it easy -  As we get married and have kids, we start taking stress over every other little thing. The key is to understand that these things will keep on going the entire life, and those don't need to be stressed upon too much so that those affect our health. Problems will remain as long as we're alive.Money is no…

Too much control is not healthy

Why 'Over Parenting' is harmful for kids

Image
Nowadays, we as parents have developed the habit of over-parenting: We have started worrying too much about our kids’ future believing that we need to keep a check on them to make them successful.We have started expecting perfectionism from them, be it in any area – eating habits, sports, music, dance, arts or overall marks.We have started making a checklist for them for daily activities too. They've been made to act like our robots.There's no time for free play, because there's a lot to do at school - projects, homework, extra studies to remain ahead in school.So what is wrong with this kind of parenting? We're their parents and whatever we're doing is for their good future. 
But "excess of everything is harmful"
We're just looking at the benefits, but let's take a look at its harmful effects on us and kids. 
The foremost question to ask ourselves is: Are we happy? And are our kids happy? I guess no.

7 simple steps to calm down an aggressive child

Image
Has it ever happened to you that you are upset about something and you vent out your anger on your family?
It happens to all of us. And we're all the more upset with the fact that everyone just sees our anger, but no one really tries to understand what we're going through. No one is interested to sit with us and listen to what is really bothering us.
We're judged as aggressive and angry, but no one tries to look deep inside us. 
Have we ever realized that this is exactly the same what we do with our kids?
Whenever our kids cry or are aggressive, we get angry on them without trying to know the real reason behind it.
We are old enough to understand our own feelings. Still we find it difficult most of the times to express those feelings clearly. Our frustration or tiredness comes out in the form of anger on our family.
Our little kids' minds are underdeveloped. So, they are unable to know what they're feeling.
What we usually do when our kids cry or show tantrums or …
