What's bothering you, my dear?

There's a famous quote from the book 'Newbie's guide to Positive Parenting' by Rebecca Eanes, "Positive Parenting starts with me." Though I've read this quote many times, but I recently unleashed its true meaning. I've written a couple of blogs on yelling earlier, and this is my third one on the hot topic.
Parents! Please stop yelling and start understanding kids
How to make our home a No Yelling area Even after writing these 2 blogs; I failed several times when it came to applying those strategies in the heat of the moment. The reason was I was so overwhelmed by anger, that those strategies rarely came to my mind.  And I was on a yelling train. 
So I dig deep inside to find "How can positive parenting start with me?"
This blog shares no bookish knowledge that I've acquired over 2+ years. Rather, it is filled with my own experiences and learning therefrom, which helped me at the right moment.
Yelling at kids is not instant, but is actually the ou…

Being Sensitive is not a Taboo!!

What is sensitivity?
Sensitivity in simple terms is “feeling too much”. But this “too much” is only when it is compared to other people who are not so sensitive. So the real problem arises when we compare the intensity of our feelings to others.
Book 'The Highly Sensitive Person' by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D states:

"Having a sensitive nervous system is normal, a basically neutral trait. You probably inherited it. It occurs in about 15–20 percent of the population. It means you are aware of subtleties in your surroundings, a great advantage in many situations. It also means you are more easily overwhelmed when you have been out in a highly stimulating environment for too long, bombarded by sights and sounds until you are exhausted in a nervous-system sort of way."

So truly speaking, why should one feel embarrassed by his natural trait? 
How does our society view it?
The society views it as a negative personality trait. How often do we hear “Why do you get upset over such small …

I'll never go to school, Mamma!!

Tina is a 4 years’ lively and sporty girl. She loves outdoors and, obviously, doesn’t like to sit still at home and in school. She’s a sensitive girl, and gets really hurt when someone talks to her rudely.

This Monday morning was a little difficult for her mom, Ruby. Tina woke up with tears in her eyes, followed with sobbing. Ruby was trying to understand what was wrong. She kept asking Tina as to what makes her cry, but to her vain. She recalled that she has to comfort her first, let her calm down, and then they can talk to find out the real reason.

Ruby held Tina in her arms, helped her drink some water to soothe her. After 10 minutes, Tina got the comfort that her Mom is 'with her' in this difficult situation, so she stopped crying, but was still sad.

Ruby asked, gently touching Tina’s face with her hands, “Why are you sad, my sweetheart? Tell Mamma, I’m with you.”

Tina said sadly “I don’t want to go to school, I don’t like school”

Ruby again gently asked “Think for a minute, an…
