Check out these 5 useful tips for a blissful career!
As the lockdown eases in many parts of India, kids have a lot of questions and anxieties about stepping out.
Talking and listening to a child, and having an open discussion, is the best way to handle this challenge and prepare them. Now more than ever, parents need to focus on communicating and interacting with their children.
As a parent, I explained to my son that these changes in our lives are to be understood and dealt with, not feared. Some of the conversations we have had are reflected below.
His teachers and I shared facts about not touching anything unless necessary, washing or sanitising his hands, and maintaining social distancing. This helped him understand that his school will also ensure his safety, and that this is something we as a family, along with his teachers, and friends will face together.
I also helped him connect with his friends via WhatsApp chats, phone calls, or video calls giving them time to interact and to know that all of us are facing similar changes. This helped him understand that his fears are similar.
Knowing that all kids want to be safe and sharing simple examples of using gloves to keep hands clean, and using masks to minimise exposure helped allay his fears. I explained how just as we use covers to protect books, we use masks to protect our faces from germs – this was an example he could relate to and follow.
It took me some time, but we discussed the importance of routine even when regular classes could not be held. By setting new ground rules to ensure a smooth transition, we now have mornings for online classes, afternoons for schoolwork and evenings for play like before.
We make it a point to continuously share positive news only with our kid, recovery rates, positive effect on environment and more. It’s quite natural for kids to be anxious and worried during such times. Through timely interventions and adequate care, we need to prepare them for the new phase of Unlock1.0– Agaar taiyaari sahi ho, to jeet pakki hai – an article in association with ICICI Prudential Life

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
