#LetsFaceIt: Not all mothers are loving and kind. Some are TOXIC...very TOXIC. Some spew negativity unknowingly and a large percentage uses an array of emotions to manipulate and control their children. The relationship with the mother defines what the child becomes in life. A child's self-image and view of the world largely depend on this relationship. If it is toxic then it can put serious roadblocks in life.Do you have a dark side? CLICK to find out...
Christmas is NOT about Christmas Trees and Santa Claus. It's much more than that. Its the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, our savior. This blog post is an attempt to put Christ back in Christmas.
The onset of monsoon season brings in much relief from the harsh summer heat. However, as a mother, it worries me when the sudden climate change brings its own set of challenges. Especially in a humid city like Mumbai, viral fever and the blocked nose is a common phenomenon. I used to spend a lot of sleepless nights tending to my cranky child who was unable to sleep because of a blocked nose. Here are some of the best solutions that I have used for my children. Each of them has been effective and I hope you will find them useful too. Please consult your pediatrician before trying anything on your little ones.
When I got an invitation from Time Zone, Malad, being sceptical was natural for my husband & me. However, we took the chance. Little did we know that we were in for a pleasant surprise :). Timezone is breaking myths and stereotypes. The variety of games that cater to each and every generation combined with the setup, price point and quality takeaways make it a family destination. The key words being AFFORDABILITY & FAMILY FUN. We took a quick tour and realised there were so many reasons to smile.
We entered Kidzania at 2 pm and at 9 pm, I had to literally drag my children out, they plainly refused to come! For those 7 hours, both of them had forgotten their phones, i-pads, computer games and television. Both had so many stories to tell me, the car was buzzing with their happy voices. There is something magical in listening to a child's description of happiness and success. My story, however, didn't end here, the next weekend, I was back at Kidzania - this time the 1.5-hour drive from Malad to Ghatkopar didn't seem like an ordeal, maybe because I knew that the return on this investment is going to be multi-fold! If you are a parent who wishes to lend wings to your child's creativity and imagination, Kidzania is definitely a must-visit for you.
