7 Resolutions Every Threenager Parent Must Make


    



The New Year brings a new opportunity to make important changes in your life. What’s on your list? ‘Be more patient’ or ‘Spend more time with your children’. But the one goal underlying in common – Be a happier parent! 


Here are 7 simple resolutions to support you in infusing a positive change in your home.




Intend to do these 7 things better this year:


Put down your phone


When you’re home and your kids are around; spend quality time with kids and not your smart phone! It might be for your work purpose, but children won’t see that when they want you to team up with them to build their blocks. So, try to model a better digital life which helps your children become less dependent on technology.



Start inculcating more traditions


Introduce some habits or traditions the coming year so your children may continue it in the years to come. Take them to a festival show. Like, kite flying on Sankrati and carol singing on Christmas.




Get outside


Going outside doesn’t have to mean to go for shopping, entertainment and the likes. It can be a simple 10 minute walk around your home or something as simple as watching stars in the night. Make time to do it!




Live every moment to the fullest 


With a blink of your eye your three y-o who was a toothless, drooling baby is going to be a graduating kindergartener and sooner they will have outgrown all childish acts. Sharing laughs while kids are young keeps the parent-child connection going strong from the threenager and beyond. 




Say 'no' to over-schedule


While you sign up your children with different activities throughout the day to keep them busy, remember sometimes it’s okay to just do nothing. Ditch the activity class at times to find extra time to play.




Schedule ‘me-and-baby’ time


Kids crave one-on-one time with their parents, too. Parent-child dates allow kids to feel special, having all the attention focused on them. Get involved in an activity together, something that makes you both happy. If your hobby is dancing, may be trying some free dancing with kids and bring these kinds of dates into a regular practice. 




Improve routines


Regularize your child’s morning, after-school and bed-time routines. Work with your child to implement improved methods in such a way that there are no reminders required.




We hope these resolutions inspire you to make positive amendments for you and your little one.


Be your best parenting self-beginning January 2018! And tell us what's on your list of New Year’s resolutions as a parent? 

CULTURE EDUCATION – WHAT ROLE DOES YOUR CHILD’S PRESCHOOL PLAY IN IT?


From trying not to overdo the little one’s Halloween costume, to rejoicing every Indian festival with utmost grandeur. As parents of the 21st century, trying to raise global citizen, we often find ourselves wondering how and what festivals should be introduced to our little people. 


While we welcome the celebrations of the west, some of us secretly worry about how we can best imbibe Indian values and gift our children the bounties of Indian culture. 


CULTURE EDUCATION – WHAT ROLE DOES YOUR CHILD’S PRESCHOOL PLAY IN IT?


In this age of westernization, it is important that we find strike a balance between being modern and rooted with our culture. While Parents can only teach their child about their own culture, preschools play an important role in making children learn about different cultures, countries and continents; allowing them to grow and become a modern, yet rooted individual.  With examples and hands-on experiences, learning about festivals and celebrations at school leaves a great impact on children. 


The real purpose of culture education is to imbibe great values in leaders of tomorrow. Different traditions and cultures can teach many important lessons of life that your children will surely benefit from. 


Three things your child will learn from festivals and celebrations at school:


1. It multiplies the joy of togetherness and allows them to bond and share the beauty of every festival.


2. It beautifully communicates the differences and similarities of a vast number of communities, allowing children to appreciate and celebrate the same. 


3. It harmoniously unites children of all backgrounds to respect and understand the values of another’s religion allowing them to be global citizens in true sense. 




These experiences teach children to embrace differences and grow into becoming responsible global citizens that respect all religions and regions. So choose a playschool for child that will make him/her an individual that by all means is a global citizen.
