Out Of Control

I am not the kind of person who gets frazzled easily. I feel like I am a rock, it takes a helluva lot of beating to break me. I was always sure of what I wanted from life, being married and having two kids was almost priority number one and I stuck to it. The first time I got pregnant I was 26, young and excited. That pregnancy didn’t last beyond the 5th month for reasons I still cannot comprehend very well. Sometimes on days that are gloomy and depressing I wonder if I gave up too soon then....

Kids Do Everything #JustLikeMom

As my husband and I drove back home, tired and worn out, I was gathering strength to tackle my 7 year old daughter‘s tantrums. I thought she might be little upset with us!  We had gone for the usual weekend grocery shopping leaving our 7 year old daughter at home. She likes going out with us in the car; listening to some of her favourite songs and chatting with her dad! But grocery shopping doesn’t excite her much and so she reluctantly decided to stay back at home with her grandparents.  I rang the door bell, expecting to see my daughter...

And the shrill alarm rang at a horribly unearthly hour. Ma AllJazz rolled over, shut her phone with vehemence and slipped right back into her benign dream world. She was rudely woken up again, by what seemed like the retching sound of a week long undigested chicken. As she slowly came to life and as her brain cells powered up, Ma AllJazz discovered that the culprit was her phone, belting out her son's version of music. Perhaps, his way of getting even with her for the previous day's dinner, comprising of a very bitter gourd? Apple of her eye?...

(The author runs a blog called NIRVANAMA at You can go to NIRVANAMA to read more posts about becoming a happy and stress free mom) We all love talking about women empowerment. We all are staunch proponents of it. Today I am going to bring your attention to a class of society whose empowerment is overlooked most of the time. Many don’t think they need empowerment. Most of us don’t KNOW they need empowerment. I am talking of our children. Children need empowerment. From day one. Whether it’s a toddler or a teenager, we need to consciously empower...

4 ways parents and teachers can make kids learn from their mistakes

To err is human and kids are no exception. In fact, in our formative years, we all have had a history of making small and big blunders. Most of the important things that we learn in our lives do not come easy. So, one must understand that making mistakes is only the first step to learning valuable lessons in life. A child shouldn’t be termed as a failure for making a mistake as it would deter him from even trying or participating in challenging tasks. Kids are reprimanded, beaten even for failing in exams. Such behavior is not suitable...
