Review – Conversations With My Children by Sivaram PusaPati
During the last three months, while I have been all scampered over parenting books, I have been particularly enthusiastic about books written by men….to be precise… by fathers. My husband is rather a reticent father, who believes in doing and not thinking or philosophizing. And I am exactly the opposite. I can’t do or understand until I have some philosophy to hang on to. And that’s why I was extremely fascinated by Conversations With My Children by Sivaram Pusapati.
The author has done an excellent job of fathering two kids and instilling in them certain values and ethics from a very primitive age. And how he did this? By seting an example through his actions and by talking. Yes, he has made sure that he never missed a chance to have an elaborate discussion with his kids whenever possible.
This book, Conversations With My Children is a go-to guide about the various topics parents should talk about to their kids. The conversations may be categorized as child manners, gender sensitivity, moral lessons by great ones and religious and cultural sensitivity.
Some of the most difficult conversations that are going to remain with me will be where the author talks to his kids (all of 6 and 5 years) about menstruation, sex and child birth. The clarity in the authors thoughts is reflected in these conversations, where the author makes sure that his kids get an unbiased understanding of the Ws and H of these supposedly Taboo topics (atleast when I recall my childhood) I am going to keep this book and bookmark these conversations for future reference for they are the light that will guide me through when it is time to tell my boy why I shop for sanitary napkins everytime I go to the supermarket.
