Book Review – Keep Calm And Mommy On by Tanu Shree Singh
You instantly know the difference, when a book comes from a psychologist cum a Mommy. And ‘Keep Calm And Mommy On’ is that book.
This book focuses on issues that come accrued with kids growing up and also growing up a mind of their own. With examples from her own life as a mother of two teenagers and other stories from fellow parents, Dr. Tanu Shree Singh, insists that it’s a cruel world out there and if we want to protect our kids from getting carried away or misguided, then there is only one way out. COMMUNICATE. Be it issues related to religion, intolerance, sexuality or crimes, children need to be provided with a balanced perspective of these ugly realities and thus the author insists that we as parents should play the important role of the information bearers for our kids. Lest they may find information from biased or extremist sources and develop a skewed view of things.
Among the several parenting self-help books that I have read for AtoZ Challenge, this is the only one that talks about bringing kids face to face with the concept of Death. Such is the extent of rationality the author brings along with this book.
I liked the writing style of the author very much, with right amount of humor sprinkled through her stories in her home. The conversations shared between her and the kids are very heart-warming and also thought provoking. As a mother of two boys, I identify with Dr. Tanu Shree’s concerns when she says that it is a task to bring up boys who respect women and are empowering specially when our household is not the silo where the kids stay. With involuntary exposure and various external influences, the author reinstates the significance of her first and most important parenting lesson – COMMUNICATE
