PLAYING WITH HEALTH!

As someone who often writes on parenting, it’s quite natural that I get invites to Facebook pages dedicated to parenting. I accept them because I do believe that it’s a great way to network with mommies who are also making the same parenthood journey that I am. Contrary to what a lot of cynics might think, I’d say quite a lot happens on these pages. From recipes to travel tips to DIY projects to hacks to job advice. I mean

ARE YOU DEALING WITH NARCISSISTIC ABUSE?

But that doesn’t mean just because you are a woman, you keep working

DISPLAY OF ANGER IS YAY, DISPLAY OF LOVE NAY?

In many Indian households, expression of anger and outbursts in front of the whole clan, neighbors, outsiders is a very common thing.  We all might have observed this.  Criticizing, ridiculing, passing sarcastic comments is alright.  Parents fighting like cats and dogs in front of their children, parents yelling and beating their kids in front of everyone in the name of discipline, daughter-in-law being humiliated in front of strangers, etc., is something which we Indians don’t mind at all. But…how many

I plead NOT GUILTY

It was a Friday night and we were all seated at the dinner table. As I served the food my 9-year-old shrieked – “No spinach please!” I could immediately sense my husband’s piercing eyes on me as if asking – “Why doesn’t she have the greens?” Even before his looks could transpire into words I retorted back, “Don’t ask me why !!” My daughter has already fractured her hand twice and sadly both the instances were in my presence.
