How I am answering questions from my child on the Corona Virus!

With the Corona virus epidemic gripping the entire world, these are confusing and scary times for all of us. As many of us are overwhelmed and anxious, homes are rife with conversations about the pandemic and its far-reaching effects – social, psychological, financial and political and out little sponges are absorbing it all in. Psychologists and children’s organisations have warned that children could be vulnerable to feelings of stress, anxiety and sadness and respond in different ways such as - being more clingy, anxious, withdrawn and aloof, angry, agitated, with a recurrence/ increased instances of bedwetting etc.

What can I do to help my baby and toddler learn counting and numbers.

What can I do to help my baby and toddler learn counting and numbers.

Children learn best when they’re interested in something. If a child is doing something they are particularly interested in – be it about dinosaurs, dolls, cars, building, insects or whatever – we can use and explore maths concepts with they while they play.

However, learning happens at a different pace for each child and it is important to remember to have fun and make memories while doing all this. While there are teaching opportunities in everything, there are also opportunities to bond, build social skills, make friends etc.

How to teach kids to stay fit for life! Kids’ fitness.

All those articles that keep popping up in the news feed about obesity and an unfit world? They are mostly true. The world is slowing down, getting more comfortable and settling in. There are screens everywhere, kids have school work, maybe there is a paucity of space – the reasons for this slowdown may be many, but the result is the same. A less fit younger generation!  Rising child obesity is a global concern. So what are we doing about it?

In the busy schedules of today, how do you inculcate child fitness?

One of the good things of having a Yoga day in focus is that it brings to fore the idea of fitness for all. It prompts us to think about fitness. It is not just about physical fitness either. Study after study has proved that the benefits of exercise far exceed just the body and affect the brain, the mind, emotions, etc.  In fact, exercise seems to affect every part of life.

Teach your child to make better choices each day. Here's how.

We vote for things every day and make choices that impact our lives in big and small ways. Do I take up the job far away from home, or do I work from home? Both choices have different impacts on our day to day lives. So while the elections may be coming just every five years, we do have to make choices and teach our children how to make better choices each day.  Make them independent, confident, happy adults.  Happy choices!

How to teach your kids polite conversation

“But that is not what you said mommy!” Hearing a childish treble pipe up with those words in the middle of a social conversation may be what most moms fear, but there is more to teaching a child about conversation than when to ‘shusshh’ or keep quiet. We have some tips for you that will have them talk and listen attentively and politely.
