Parenting is a balancing act, just that at times we do not know how to balance it right. Not just in the real world, a plethora of social media platforms have raised the stress levels of the new age parent. Is it okay to let my child WhatsApp her friends? Should I go through my son or daughter’s facebook friends list? Is it okay if my teenager posts photos on Instagram?
With a rise in social media platforms and dating apps, intruders are finding new ways to honey trap people. Sextortion is one such cyber crime that blackmails victims with sexual information or photos to extort sexual or monetary favours.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
