    Giving birth to a child and raising the child are two different things. The later is a commitment and needs oodles of love, self regulation and trust- If it couldn't be done today... tomorrow would be anothe

    Feeling Happy? Wow!

    Feeling Sad? Hello, why?

    Emotions are emotions be it frustrated, cheerful, sad, angry, jumpy, happy et all. What is it about the negative emotions of our child that makes us go uncomfortable?

    ‘Mamma, only office is important for you’

    ‘Papa, you couldn’t take me to park again today’

    ‘Papa, you love only my little sister, her gift is always better than mine’

    Be aware about our triggers. It’s always about the child….and not us.

    When we set a limit for a child, the child is giving up something that means a lot to him to take up what you want him to do....for the sake of your relationship with him.

    Does this put an onus on us to be kind while setting limits?

    With kids even when the child is doing things for attention, be kind. Give the attention to the child in a way that reinforces the limits and trust in the child's abilities. All throughout keep the calmness intact.

    Behind 'My child is not respecting me', are we looking for unconditional obeying me instead...They may be two different things.

    Thought for the moment:
    Are we raising our children today in a way that they want to spend time with us when they have a choice tomorrow?

    We give consequences when a child comes home beyond the cut off time…at the same time are we noticing and praising when he comes on time as well, be it once in four times?

    While consequence could work to kick start a behavior, it loses its appeal in the long run. Praise is what keeps the behavior
