    How to make your kids bedtimes happy & effortless

    “Sleep is the best meditation”

    -Dalai Lama

    But making kids to sleep is like reaching the Mount Everest. I meant to say, it’s not an easy thing 🙄. The first thing happens in most of the houses is, the kids running or hiding themselves when they are called to go for bed. Isn’t it?

    How to change these dramas when it is time for bed🤔? The solutions are very simple. Let’s switch the angle from the parent side to the kids side. Lets take a look of the topic briefly right here!!!

    Go to bed with your kids:-

    Shouting at your kids to go for bed and theirs refusal is a most annoying thing that happens in most of the houses on a daily basis.
    Instead of shouting at them to go for bed, you better go with them by finishing all your household works earlier. Accompanying them during bedtime would result in no arguments, anxiety etc..

    Make a happy bedtime:-

    Always enjoy the bedtimes. It is the place where you can spend some valuable time with your kids  as a relaxing spot, writing down the gratitude journal, chit chat etc.. Make the bedtime the most happiest, awaited time for the kids and you as well..

    Play some mind games/storytelling:-

    Kids do not like to go by following strict rules like go straight, turn left, drink water and come back and all 😛. Rather if you add some entertainment factor to it, they would do the same thing without their consciousness. Likewise, apply the same rule for the bedtime too. If you keep on asking them to sleep, definitely they won’t sleep. Instead, involve them to play like some mindgames or to tell a story, they would be very excited to do so. Play for some time and have fun.

    Gratitude journal & chit chat:-

    As I said sooner, make your bedtime to do these habits as a healthy rituals. Ask your kids to write down any 3 gratitude moments of that day on the diary. And have a discussion with them about it and about their day. This habit really makes them to look forward to life in a positive way.

    After finishing all the above rituals, your kids would be very happy to go for bed without stressing them. Isn’t look simple?? If you think the situation is unmanageable, do not panic,  always change your glasses for the other angle to make it easy to solve the problem. Life is so easy if we think in a simpler way.

    WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

    Autism is not a tragedy. Ignorance is..

    April is the month of world autism month. One in 150 kids is autistic these days. The autism spectrum is growing. I wish, every parents must be well aware of autism in today’s date.. Let’s get briefly into the topic to enlight the awareness in each one of us..

    Disclosure:- I am not a medical expert or a doctor but I am sharing my thoughts from my experience what I got to know from my friend who is a psychiatrist.

    What is autism?

    Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. Autism is a complex neurobehavioral condition. It has many types and stages. 

    Autism symptoms:-

    Autism spectrum disorder appears in infancy and early childhood, causing delays in many basic areas of development, such as learning to talk, play, and interact with others.

    If you find one of the above disorder or lag in your child or in your family. Don’t accept the wait-and-see approach. Many parents and family members say, wait-and-see some may take time. But kindly do not pay attention to their terrible advice. If you feel something wrong with your child’s behaviour, then never ever delay your approach to the doctor.

    Some children with autism starts to  develop communication skills but tend to regress when they age between 12 and 24 months. For example, children who say mamma and  pappa may stop using the entire language. Likewise, children who used to play peek-a-boo or waving hands may stop playing social games. Loss of any speech, social behaviour, gestures are needed to be taken as a serious issues. Regression to these behaviours is a major red flag for autism.

    Parents support to the child:-

    A diagnosis of autism is difficult for both the parents and the children. Although these disorder cannot be cured, most children can lead a happy life in taking part in the therapy. Parents must be the pillar of strength for the children especially for the autistic children. Mostly those parents are the very strongly willed people, I must say. They face various kinds of challenges on their daily basis. A big salute to those great people.

    Let’s make a change:-

    As a contribution to those lovely kids, let’s all join our hands for the support and accept the people with autism. If autistic souls are near you, stop starring at them instead spread love and kindness to those sweet people. If you can, kindly donate financially to the autism society. Last but not the least, if you are not facing such kind, pay your loads of gratitude to the God.

    How to create healthy eating habits to your kids


    “Kids who are fed healthy foods grow up loving healthy foods”

    Kids loves junk foods. They enjoys eating it. We couldn’t control them. They refuse to eat healthy foods. So, letting them to eat anything, to have something in the stomach, says maximum parents. Do you agree with that?? But, I totally deny with this statement. Yes, I really do..

    Let me explain why I am denying it. Kids are like a clay. We can mould them as we do. They can easily adopt the tastes how we feed them. It’s all about what we are preferring to feed them from the early stages of intaking foods. The truth is, we (parents) are the one who loves the junks most. Through us the kids get influenced to have junks. I hope most of us would agree with this!. 🤔

    I am not asking you to go totally for organic, homemade foods for kids at all the time. I know it  would be tough in today’s world to go like that. Especially when we are out. Restricting our kids during parties are highly difficult . Eating junks occasionally is okay, because of social environment. Here I need to make a clear point that junks as routine and junks as occasional is entirely different from each other. Junks in daily diet needs to be prohibited.

    There are some kids who does not show interest in eating. For those kids parents needs to take extra efforts to feed them (but definitely feed them) by diverting them with toys or making a game out of food or even take them out of the balcony for giving them options to watch different things to feel like eating,. Be very very patient when you are in the game of feeding. Do not never ever leave the kids with empty stomach or giving some junk foods to munch on. If you do so the kids will take advantage of asking for the junk or unhealthy food at that right time. Always remember that kids are way smarter than the parents. But you must show your extraordinary skills to prove them wrong.

    The reason we go for junk food easily is, it’s readymade, packed, needs no cooking, tastier with high sugar,oil, spices, preservatives (which is absolutely unhealthy). And many parents find it easier to carry the packed snacks while traveling. There are some options too you can introduce your kids to nutritious way of eating.

    Dates and Banana:-

    If your kids loves to eat sweeter. Carry some dates or banana. It gives instant energy and fills the stomach. If u fear of any accidental mess up, you can prepare an easy homemade cake using these two items. Carry the yummy yet nutritious cake to your kids. I am sure your kids will love it..

    Dry fruits:-

    If your kids likes to munch on. Carry some mixed nuts with you. Some kids don’t like to eat raw nuts . For those, roast the mixed nuts in ghee for flavour and carry. If your kids loves spiciness, u can toss the nuts by adding some salt or spices,  which is completely optional.

    Fresh juices:-

    If your kids likes to drink  juices. Instead of giving store-bought soft drinks. You can swap it by giving fresh juices, tender coconut, sugarcane juices or even buttermilk (it will suit this summer heavenly)

    “If you want to make a change, start from yourself”.

    Taking some effort for better change in your kids eating habit will result in good health.
