Undoubtedly, Mother Sparsh is a Better Choice to Keep My Baby Skin Smiling!







Motherhood arrives with a lot of responsibilities and the same was for me. I had transformed into an extra careful and over possessive Mom, from the day my angle arrived in my womb. A phase of hasty decisions and carelessness vanished. I took decisions after verifying and cross-checking all the pros and cons of any article to be used for the baby care.

Imbibe Habit of Regular Studies in Children! #Parenting #Studies





These days’ parents are over ambitious pertaining to studies of their children. They want to see them faring with excellent marks and attaining higher ranks in class. It is the wishes of all to see them excel but how you train them to attain, Matters.


The competitive world gives goose bumps to parents and they fear the uncertainty of getting a good job placement or achieving a feat in their career.


Moreover, in spite of a growing number of educational institutions, still, it is tough for the kids to get admission in better institutions of the choice preferred by the parents.

To get through, the cute little tiny tots are prepared with required courses rigorously to get admission in Nursery classes.



Stress & pressure to compete mounts on the toddlers and the kids from the early age of 3. The overambitious parent’s leaves no stone unturned to get a break in best educational institutions.

What route is followed?

If the child is coaxed and pressurized then there are a lot of chances of a misfire. The child might lose the interest in studies or get bogged down by intense pressure. The child turns into irritant self and at times, they become dull and it plays havoc in their later life.




Whereas if the learning is made interesting for the children by allotting them hours for regular study along with the enjoyment of playing and other extracurricular activities. They will do well and develop interests in their subjects and the consequence will be positive…they will become inquisitive and curious, a positive sign of a worthy student.


The parents have to choose the proper path to imbibe habits of regular studies in their children to see that they are transformed into intellectuals. They don’t emerge as a bookworm but an all-rounder with knowledge on all subjects, ranging from textbooks, GK, sports and hobbies.


The pattern of parenting and handling kids have gone under great transformation, these days.


I find the parents are quite stressed, related to studies of their children. They want to give their best and even wish that their unfulfilled ambition is fulfilled by their children. The peer pressure too works a lot because parents wish to show off their pride and status by remarkable feat and grades achieved by their children. They are more concerned that their children should rank above the neighbors and secure higher marks than neighbor’s and colleague’s kids.


During exam sessions, I come across long faces of parents whose children are studying in the nursery, primary or secondary, all reel under great stress. They mount pressure on kids to excel and make them sit for long hours to mug up the lessons. Both parents put in their maximum efforts in preparing questionnaire and answers and even prepare the projects all by themselves with the sole aim, EXCEL.


I find this situation absurd because I never implied these in my parenting style and I used to remain cool and composed during or before the exam.



I believe in Regular Study and there are great advantages to Regular Study. I imbibed the habit of regular study from Day One and made sure that they stick to it. In a few instances, they went astray but normally, they followed the pattern of regular study.

How Regular Study Benefits Children

    Regular study keeps the child updated with the progress of studies at school.

    Every day, the child must revise the lessons that have been taught at school. The contents taught in school remains fresh in mind if it is revised at home and it is easily absorbed.

    Attend all the questions and answers related to the taught chapter.

    Jot down all your doubts and queries and get it cleared in next class.

    Read one extra page or next lesson for the next class. When it is taught in school, it seems that they are aware of the contents of the chapter and the lesson seems interesting and is easy to understand.

    The child does well in surprise quiz taken at school for the chapters taught in previous class. They are on par with the lessons taught.

    It boosts the confidence of the child and he initiates in asking a question in classes to clear his doubts and respond to the questions asked in class.

    During examination time, the regular students don’t require to invest extra time to update their knowledge quotient and preparation.

    They don’t reel under the stress of appearing in the exam.

    They transform into confident students and are happy and curious to appear for the test.

    It inculcates the habit of sitting regularly for the study session.

    The assignments seem easy and interesting due to regular study.

    It induces the habit of self-study. They are not reliant on parents and their confidence enables them to do well and progress.

    Regular study boosts their concentration power and they catch the lessons fast.

    Children get recognition in class for being proactive and alert.

    In a sum, regular study boosts them to do better in studies. They are well versed with the chapters. They develop the interest in studies.


Additional Benefits of a Regular Study

    The health & growth of children is better because they don’t require to stay awake for long hours during examinations.

    There is no stress in the children, exam phobia, and nervous breakdown.

    The parents don’t have to take stress to cover up the chapters for the exams and life at home is peaceful and calm.

    There is a close bonding between parents and children because both don’t stress each other.

    The children enjoy healthy bonding with the teachers at school.

    The children enjoy other aspects of life being regular in a study as they get ample time to invest in their hobbies and sports.


My children followed a pattern of regular study and they never had to sacrifice their play and extracurricular activities to pace up with the studies. It was peaceful for me because I did not have to take extra stress for their studies. The accomplishment has been great.

I never stressed them to stand first but made them understand the power of grade and knowledge in life. I even encouraged them to watch films and other healthy shows, read books and magazines, catch up with their hobbies and regular play.

It plays an important part in their grooming and they come out to be calm individuals because they are not deprived of the benefits and they never feel left out in any niche later in life.

The parents should make the children understand the importance of regular study and try to instill the habit in them.

Once the habit is inculcated in children, they will realize the importance and will follow the suit throughout life.

These are my views in the field of parenting. Do share your views and leave a comment.


My Baby’s Smiles are Back!





                                                                           Image Courtesy: Pixabay




My baby used to sleep peacefully at night and never did she wake up crying in the middle of the night since she was born. It was a great relief for me because I enjoyed a good sleep at night after being sleep deprived for the whole day. I fed her at regular intervals as per her stage and she cooperated.


Due to a peaceful sleep, my day was perfect and I felt full of energy and managed all the household chores all by myself and with the support of my supportive husband when he used to be at home.

Our relationship was going fine, without any disturbance and we were happy.
However, since a few days, my baby Avni, began to cry while being put on the bed. I thought, maybe, she was suffering from gas or stomach ailment. I tried all sorts of home remedies to sort it out but all in vain. When I took her in my arms, keeping her on my shoulder, she was good, but as I put her back on the bed, her tantrums started again.


The whole night, she was restless and was missing her peaceful sleep. Gradually, even during the day hours, she started getting restless and lost her appetite. At times, she vomited the whole thing that she was fed.


The consequence was that all three of us were disturbed because we could not sleep peacefully. My hubby started getting irritated because he had to catch his office early morning, and being deprived of sleep, he was not able to concentrate on his duties. Even, I could not get enough time to manage my sleep because the baby had gone cranky and she longed to be in my arms only.


Now, it was time to see her doctor and get her reviewed because I could not find anything missing, and Avni was getting restless each day. In the corner of my heart, a feeling crept in of evil eye. I don’t believe in superstitions and blind faith but when it's about the baby, fear grips in. 

I discussed with my MIL in the beginning, but she laughed out at my apprehension, because she knew me well and that I never bothered about these things.

She said coyly, “Yeah, today, I am talking with a Mom and a Mom is so paranoid about her kids that she can go to any length for them.”


The appointment was fixed with her Paediatrician and Avni was thoroughly examined.


Avni was suffering from nasal congestion, and since babies are obligatory nose breathers, she was cranky and did not sleep peacefully.


The doctor explained to me with a slide show, how the nasal congestion was bothering her and she was not comfortable in taking food, playing or sleeping. It was a type of allergy and she needed medication to get relief. She found solace on my shoulders because it was easy for her to breathe with her mini-nose, but it was difficult for her to breathe while lying down on the bed.


The Paediatrician prescribed Nasivion® Pediatric (Child) 0.025% Nose Drops. Avni was 15 months old and the dosage prescribed was 1 drop into each nostril thrice a day for 5 days and was asked to get re-examined if the problem persisted. She reaffirmed that it will bring relief to my baby and she will be back into her original self, hale and hearty.


I bought the nasal drops from the Pharmacy and the details of the medicine are as under.

Ingredients

One ml of Nasivion® Child Nose Drops contains:
- 0.25 mg Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride USP (active ingredient) in buffered aqueous solution
- 0.3 mg Benzalkonium Chloride Solution 50% IP (as preservative)

Packaging

10 ml glass bottle with dropper

Dosage

As prescribed by Paediatrician.


Gradually, she got respite and was back to her earlier routine. Her crankiness and irritation disappeared and my chubby Avni’s smiles were back.

All three of us were having a peaceful night and were vibrant with energy to finish our chores and play with our cute doll, Avni all over again.

Her smiles brought solace to my heart and all the fright and fear of the evil eye vanished.

Thanks to the Paediatrician and Nasivion® Pediatric 0.025% Nose Drops for providing relief from nasal congestion. Nasivion Nasal Saline Solution being the first line of treatment, as it is safe and can be used by anyone. If the problem is aggravated then after consulting the doctor, one can opt for Nasivion (Mini) Baby Nose Drops or Nasivion Pediatric (Child) Nose drops depending on the age of the child.

Media, Change the Style of Reporting to Improve Health of Our Nation! #News








The newspapers, social media and TV news is flooded with the nuisances, such as murders, killing, rapes, eve teasing, molesting, kidnapping, cheating etc. All evils are reported and we take for granted that Humanity has disappeared from our Planet.


When I gave some time and explored on other aspects, I concluded that the news of rogues are reported. The positive news aren’t explored and reported because media don’t feel like reporting nor we people ever discuss.

If a murder takes place, it goes around and the news is on the tip of the tongue and spicy stories are embedded along as it moves from place to place.

If some acts of goodness are done, they aren’t even discussed in community gossips or in personal conversation because people don’t pay heed to it.

“Mr. X ka beta is grounded for taking bribe” is the hot topic of discussion.

“Mr. Y has helped his maid with a good sum in her daughter’s marriage” don’t do rounds, rather the news is nipped with a grumpy comment, “Unke paas hai to diya, kya bada kaam kiya.”


In a population of billions and billions, the level of crime, torture, murder, rape is quite low and good deeds do exist on this planet.


I am not against evil reporting but my wish is that we should include positive and inspirational reporting too so that the faith of people don’t wear and tear. People don’t get filled up with negativity. The positive news will have positive signs on people and people will try to compete with goodness, doing rounds of goodness by extending help to needy, stand for disable, speak out for the downtrodden and exploited and on more and more subjects of humanity, positivism and goodness.


I request all to bring a change in reporting style and state facts to people. Unearth news that shakes the faith and simultaneously unearth the news that sends the messages of brotherhood and fraternity among people.

Faith of people will grow in humanity and people will move towards positive goal been encouraged by positive acts of others.




Hope all who read my post do agree with me and plan to sign a cause to improve reporting in our country building a positive nation.

Share your views and your comments will show how many people voice my opinion and agree that HUMANITY IS EXISTENT IN THIS WORLD.

Disclaimer:  It is my sole opinion and no biasedness against anyone. I felt like sharing my feelings and my inner voice took form of a post that I penned down.

I Missed Blogging Dearly!






Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers





I shifted my domain from Big Rock to another and this process took a quite long time hampering my blogging activities.

I did not anticipate that it will take so long, as of approx. 20 days. The Big Rock did not wished to release me and it kept on hold for a long time requesting, Abhi Naa Jaa.

Finally, it was released and my website was up. I missed my writing activities dearly.

Mostly, I write in impulse and the contents are spontaneous…all those went haywire.

Writing in impulse shoots idea automatically and you cannot write afterwards, however hard you strive….the intensity and the ideas churned disappears with time.

I was in fear that I might lose a good number of traffic and website status. Thankfully, it remained static…neither I gained nor I lost.

Dear Friends, I am back and will share my writings on regular basis. Writing keeps me connected and my feelings gets a positive vent to share.

A Film Packed with Lessons Learned from Life - Sanju!







Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers




A week before, I along with my friend went to watch Sanju…a biopic of Mr. Sanjay Dutt, directed by Rajkumar Hirani and the role played by Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju.

There are wide difference of opinion regarding the role of Ranbir Kapoor, some agree that he has justified his role as Sanjay Dutt and some are disappointed…divided opinions and it has to be…millions and zillions cannot hold same view…perception of each individual differs.

I have never been a fan of Sanjay Dutt nor have I ever tried to watch his movie on priority…watched if got a chance.

This time, I watched Sanju on preference as I was eager to see his biopic and what was it that had made people crazy for Sanju.

Normally, I prefer weekdays to watch movie and that too noon show is preferred because this time of the day, I am free with all the family and self-obligations and there is less crowd at the venue.

The scorching heat did not deter people and the Cineplex was packed with young brats, hopefully many had left their classes and studies to watch the movie.

Been a psychology student, I view and perceive things differently and I did the same with this movie, rather I got a chance to prove my point through my subject.

I discovered that there are umpteen lessons to be learned from the movie, Sanju. The lessons are for the teenagers, for the parents and the society.






The story of Sanju revolves around the real life of Sanjay Dutt, how he got into the habit of drugs, how the indifferent attitude of parents affected him and how he went deep into the abyss falling into bad company.

Let me start from the angle of Teens.

Teenage is the most vulnerable age in an individual’s life. There are number of changes within, physio and psycho and are the cynosure of socio eyes. The individual in this age is volatile, daring and energetic and weird dreams and desires keeps him occupied. The movie shows how Sanju is allured by the people, who are into drug business. He is a known figure in society and people knows his affluent background. The indulgent in the business introduces him to drugs that starts with fashion, gets into passion and finally, he lands as a drug addict.


It is a lesson for the Teenagers to be away from the strangers or friends, who provoke them to booze, use drugs, smoke cigarettes, or any type of abuse which initially takes them far away from the real world. If ever any teen comes across such people, confide in your parents, guardians, siblings or well-wishers and acquaint them with the incidents that is been confronted by you. They can take the stock of the situation and can weigh all the pros and cons and tell you the veracity of the incident.

Teenage is the age, where you cannot trust yourself and then how you can trust the world…you need a guide, a mentor to pass through this phase.

Next comes the Parents.

Paresh Rawal has enacted the role of Sunil Dutt and Manisha Koirala is in the role of Nargis. The movie shows that Sanju was emotionally very close to his mother. Father loves him a lot but there is an emotional barricade between them. He does not exhibit his love openly and the son feels that he is been ignored. There is immense pressure on Sanju to perform to carry his father’s legacy in Bollywood. He is perplexed and not able to concentrate on his role. In the meantime, his mother gets diagnosed by cancer and leaves the world forever. Sanju is devastated. His drug addiction leads him to drug rehabilitation centre and it is a tough time for him. He gets weaned out of drugs but has to pay a heavy price for it. When he gets out of drug addiction, he comes into contact of underworld mafias and he gets framed with the charges of a terrorist in the severe bomb attack in Bombay. Arms and ammunition are discovered from his possession and once again, trouble seethes him and his family. In the beginning, father is unable to come to terms with it but the unconditional love for him makes him blind and he wants to wash the charges of a terrorist from his son’s life and for that he is ready to give up his high held principles.

Lesson for a Parent

Never overburden your child with your desires and ambitions. Don’t discourage them or build grudges against them. Exhibit your love and concern openly because your child cannot foresee your wrapped love and emotions. Further, if your child is proven wrong, punish him for wrongdoing so that he understands his mistake. Make your child comfortable in your company so that he can share all that he goes through or want to share. Be friendly with them and discuss everything under the sun. Educate them with right and wrongs of life. Befriend their friend and watch their company, the child is in. Been a parent of a teenager is not easy, you have to walk an extra mile to watch his mood, behaviour, perception and they need to be handled with care. Never ever suggest them to take a wrong path or a short cut to save their skin. Don’t wash their dirty linen in public but confide in them and take required action so that they repent their wrong doing.

It was an emotional moment for the people watching the movie when Sanju read the letter on the demise of his father. The boundaries raised between the relationships held him back to exhibit his concern and love for his father in his lifetime.


A Worthy Friend




The movie Sanju has portrayed the character of a worthy friend Kamli, who stands by Sanju & his family through thick and thin of life. He tries by all means to correct Sanju and shows him the path of righteousness. He is there with Sanju in the days of his addiction and his wrong doings but moves apart when he comes to know that he is framed under the charges of possession of RDX. The trust in Sanju and his family is breached and he cuts off his relation with Sanju, though feelings exist for them. I am not sure whether such character do exist in real Sanjay Dutt’s life but such friend is a possession in one’s life. The reel character is played by Vicky Kaushal. The character of friend Kamli is so positive in the film that the people has fallen in love with the character of Kamli.


When you are stuck on wrong path, it is difficult to return back on right track. However, hard you try to rectify yourself, the media, the society and the onlookers starves you and makes the path all the more difficult. The bad elements poke in their nose so that you don’t return back into the world of consciousness.

This movie is with a strong message for the youngsters and the parents, both should share a strong relationship and confide in each other.


My take: The teens are vulnerable, illogical, blunt and daring, use their burning energies tuning them into positive energy. Let them speak out their thoughts so that you can read their mind and their thoughts they are sailing through.
