Open toddler's minds

Hi friends! Its been long since I wrote in my blog. I was a bit tied up taking care of my daughter. Today, lets talk about how to open toddler's minds towards academics and other interesting things.

  • Always remember children love to play and dont really enjoy to study. So the more you nag or force upon them, the more they will show their irritation.
  • Try to make them study while they play. Its not necessary that small children should sit and concentrate at one place. While they are busy playing, you can teach them alphabets, numbers, poems and so many stuff.
  • Children love colorful picture books. So you can buy them online and make kiddos learn important animals, birds, fruits, vegetables, etc.
  • Try buying real good activity books that are loaded with puzzles, matching alphabets, numbers, writing and so on and so forth. Yesterday my daughter enjoyed making dress of a tortoise by writing small alphabets on them. That was an interesting activity book exercise.
  • So, this way you can open your kiddos mind towards study in an interesting way.
  • Children love to learn new things, but boring red and blue line notebook doesnt interest them. You can even get writing books that have the same red blue lines, but they look attractive. 
  • Try various books for children's study and allow them to explore their min

Top Ten Healthy foods that Boost energy in kids

Hi friends, Hope you guys are doing well. Today lets talk of top ten healthy foods that boost energy in kids. Time and again we see that children tend to feel tired or fatigued. So why not serve them healthy and energy boosting snacks.

  • Almonds- Almonds contains magnesium and B vitamins that help convert food into energy. We find children often who have deficiency of magnesium and Bvitamins get bogged down fast, irritability and even feel lack of concentration. So almonds are super kings in snacks.
  • Bananas- Bananas are filled with Bvitamins, potassium and fibre. They taste yummy when you mix them with milk or yogurt and make healthy drink.
  • Oatmeal- Oatmeal are high fibre content that tastes yummy when cooked in milk and fruits. You can also make mouthwatering steamed rava oats idli with it. Keeps kid's stomach full and packed with energy.
  • Pistachios- Pistachios have a great combination of fiber, protein and monosaturated fat thats tasty and adds a great flavour to your tastebuds.
  • Fruit Smoothies- Prepare protein rich, fiber rich fruit smoothies that will instantly give power and energy to your kids.
  • Apples- Fiber rich apples are disease fighting powerhouses. Add apples in milk, smoothies, or juice or simply devour an apple. Its the best fruit. An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
  • Yogurt- Yogurt has high concentration of potassium, calcium and vitamin D. They also aid digestion.
  • Cheese- Say cheese. Cheese is a great source of protein. So go cheesy in kids' sandwiches and toasts. Or simply offer cheese slice to them.
  • Go berry- All kinds of berries are high source of energy and fiber.
  • Fish- Fish definitely adds its midas touch of omega-3. So try to add fish in kid's diet.
Enjoy parenting and have a great time!!!!

Stress among children

Hi friends! How is your day. Lets today talk of stress among children. Its a myth that elders often get stressed out but not children. Its absolutely wrong. Kids too get tired and fatigued. Lets find out what are the factors that lead to tiredness in children.

  • Lack of sleep
  • Medications
  • Stressful activities. If the kids have stressed out work schedules then they tend to feel worked up. Nowadays parents along with school send children for various activity classes like phonics, dance classes, singing classes, etc. But please parents remember dont stress your kids too much. Try to gauge your kid's stamina and schedule. Rome wasnt built in a day.So, dont expect your children to turn out super talent stars within short period of time.
  • Bad food diet. Nowadays, children tend to prefer junk food over healthy food. So they are deficient in iron, vitamins and calcium. Regular balanced diet is the need of the hour.
  • Lack of physical exercise- Today children are more glued to video games, laptops as compared to spending time in parks, and other various outdoor activities.
  • Prolonged Illness 
  • So, please parents try to be kind to your little toddlers and let them flow with time in a stress free environment. Dont pack too much in their schedules. They have enough time in their hand to learn new stuff.
Enjoy parenting and have a great time!!!

How to divert a hyperactive toddler and keep her engaging

Hi friends! Thanks for liking my articles and recipes. Today we will talk of ways and means by which we can divert a hyperactive toddlers. Remember that kids who are hyperactive and mischievious, they have too much energy in stored in them. So you as parents, try your best to utilize their energies in the right manner.

  • Often hyperactive toddlers want to play or learn new things. You can ask them to do role play of their teachers at home and teach.
  • You can engage them in innovate kitchen cooking as well. Chop cucumber, tomatoes, corn, lettuce and ask them to prepare a salad. You can act as the chef's assistant and add salt, pepper and lime. 
  • Kids love to play supermarket with their parents. So get their stuff aligned and pretend to be their customer.
  • Dont encourage watching TV/ laptops or playing video games to keep them engaged. Its not good for their eyes and brains.
  • You can take your kids to grocery shopping and engage them. Children love to explore supermarket counters and feel delighted to see so many things under one roof.
  • I always, like to invest my money and time in getting good knowledgable books online. You can get lovely activity books for preschool toddlers., Amazon,, have great collection of books. Colorful, tempting activity books will brighten your kid's IQ and aptitude. 
  • If your child isnt interested to study, then take him for some regular outings, parks for some fun time.
Enjoy parenting and have a great time!!!!

Role play is an important tool to teach toddlers

Hi friends! Lets talk today of importance of role play in teaching toddlers. Remember all kids love to enact and pretend to be a bumble bee, a dinosaur or even a teacher. They love to copy someone's actions and behaviour. So hy, not encourage and make them learn new things in the most easiest way possible.

  • Role play, stage play or simple act can explain tough concepts of stories, fairy tales easily to children. My daughter understood why Ganpati is elephant headed, because of her school's annual day play on Lord Ganesha.
  • Innovative and creative ideas improve a child's power of imagination and helps him nurture his developmental skills.
  • So, as parents allow your kids to do role play at home too, as teachers, mother or anything they would like to be.
  • Fancy dress, costume party or for that matter even poems help kids to get into the character of the particular animal/bird or even a personality that they are trying to portray. 
  • Now, with action, the kids also need to memorise few lines of description. That really improves their memory power, confidence and orientation skills.
  • Just boring studies is not only a method to study. Encourage your children to participate in extra curricular activities at preschool/primary and secondary schools to keep them interested in varieties of things.
  • Today's genx need to gear up fast to face the world.So get set and roll.

Enjoy parenting and have a great time!!!

Good posture important in children

Hi friends! Today we will discuss how important it is to teach good posture in children. As we are moving towards globalisation, the usage of information technology has seen a rampant change in the lifestyle of people across the globe. But what is dampening, is that today's children are getting more prone to bad postures and habits.

  • Educate the children the importance of good posture. Always sit straight while reading or writing. Dont stoop or bend too much. Dont lie down and do any work.
  • Always lead by your example. As we say practise what you preach. Children will start getting tuned to good posture if the family is conscious about it too.
  • Dont keep nagging the children. Calm down and always praise your children if they start adopting good posture.
  • Invest money in good furnitures that will help your children and give them comfort.
  • Too big a chair or too small one isnt a good thing for your child.
  • Regular exercise is a must for today's young wires.
  • Dont allow the children to lie down and watch Ipad or mobile. Always teach them to sit up straight.
  • If you inculcate good habits of posture from childhood itself, kids wont face much problem as they grow into teenage or adolescence.
Enjoy parenting and have a great time!!!!
