The fault in our upbringing

October 25, 2017
gender roles in society

When I observe the evolution both Genders have experienced in the past few years- I see Men lagging behind. Do not take me wrong but really, this is what I see from my end.

choosing a preschool

Choosing a Preschool is like cracking a tough nut. Its always difficult for Parents to leave their Child in someone’s hands who is not a part of the Nest.

I cursed myself for letting it happen but I am thankful as it ignited me to…
