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 paediatrician before trying anything on your little ones.
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.
We live in an unsafe world. Rape is a genderless issue. It can happen to a boy or a girl. Rape and abuse can be committed by a man or woman. The challenge is to bring up a confident and assertive child despite the dangers lurking around.
