October 29, 2020
Minimalism with Kids

Minimalism with Kids is possible without making your Kids feel deprived. There are some easy ways which you can use to bring the change slowly and effectively.

Because you want them to enjoy nature more than screens and shopping. Because you want them to value people rather than things. But it’s not as…

We don’t have Television at our Home.

settle abroad

Before starting to discuss why I don’t want my Kids to settle abroad I want to clear out that it’s not for my selfish motives. I am a young Parent writing this and not a sunset one who wants to keep my kids with myself in my old age or retirement age. You must be wondering if I thought the same for myself when I was a Teenager or a young adult? Yes, I did. I never wanted myself to…

foods in monsoon season

Monsoon is the time when our bodies tend to retain fluids. This weather triggers the spread of diseases. Temperature and Humidity take its toll on our immunity, leaving our bodies susceptible to ailments. There is much more moisture in the air which allows germs to multiply. During this time of the year, intestinal functions, as well as the digestive system, become weak resulting in slow metabolism. Diet is the only thing we can control. So, do not let weather taking…

Whenever I ask my Husband to find a particular cloth in Kids wardrobe, his obvious reply comes “I didn’t find”. This is why I always keep Kid’s changing clothes outside while I leave for Office. Unlike adults, Kids wardrobe demands frequent visits. They need to be organized more frequently and de-cluttered timely. This is because- Cloth size is small There are many categories of clothes- Sports wear, school wear, party wear, night wear, regular wear and so on. Searching by…

things that matter to Kids

In these 4+ years of parenting, I always tried to find out the things that matter to Kids. You buy your Kid almost everything they ask for. You take them for rides every now and then. You make them join art/music or sports class. But nothing of these matter much to your Kids. You must be amazed at this but this is true. Rather, there are so many small things that matter a lot to Kids, more than we think.…

Do you regret having Kids?

regret having kids

Let me make a confession first– Our first Kid was not a planned one. I was not at all ready to be a Parent. Even my Husband was not. But it happened. I happily announced it to everyone around.   I tried not to show the disappointment to my partner but once when we were out on an after-dinner walk, I started crying. My husband was clueless. I was reluctant to tell him the truth because, by default, women are…
