Book Blurb – How Your Personality Makes or Breaks Your Child by Dr. Chayanika Singh

There are various factors both positive and negative which exert influence over a child’s behavior. We, as parents, make a lot of mistakes in the way we rear our children and some of these mistakes are unavoidable. Our innocence or ignorance may turn a child with an innocent mind into a difficult child!

We need to identify the repercussions of our own problems on our children, and look for ways to overcome them. If not, then we run the risk of our children going astray.

The objective of the book is not to instill any fear in parents or would-be parents. The author’s aim is in the direction of imparting discipline to parents and also to shed light on the problems and issues of parents.

This book is an opportunity to introspect, because everyone has unique problems, and has to manage their own behavior and consequently their children accordingly.

Book Blurb – All You Need Is Love – The Art of Mindful Parenting by Shelja Sen

I accept and love you the way you are. You are unique, you are different and you are you. I will not compare you with others, I will not constantly keep expecting and demanding what you might not be able to do or give. As parents, we foist our dreams and aspirations on our children, push them to be more than we could ever be. But do we have the courage and honesty to look within and ask what drives our parenting – our own needs or those of our children?

Book Blurb – Innocent Wings – Dyslexia/Childhood/Parenting

Mother Nature is kind enough to accept one and all, irrespective of their differences. But we as human being create classes of differences and disregard those whom we think are not at par with the norms stated by us. If we would also accept people with a variety of differences equally, then there wouldn’t be any issue left in the society. Little Rudra and many other children like him face various issues because of their incapability in academics and other fields. We have assumed that the benchmark of the child’s performance is his good grades, otherwise, he or she is incapable. Innocent wings is about a child who with assessment and interventions, became from no one to the one in his school. All that is required is lots of love and little care to support their capacities.

Book Review – Handbook of Day to Day Parenting Tips by WOW Parenting

If you are tired of reading pages after pages, posts after posts about positive parenting, its time to graduate to WOW Parenting.  The parenting concepts shared through 27 chapters in this ebook available only on Blogchatter Ebook Carnival portal, may not be pathbreaking, but they definitely are convention breaking.

As for me, a mother who is constantly seeking motivation to train my thick head towards positive parenting, I was bowled over by the crisp but new age coinage to some well know parenting behaviors. One of the concepts that I found to be really insightful was ‘Age Based Communication’ and ‘Parenting Structure’. I wouldn’t spoil the fun by elaborating on these concepts here.

Finally I found one parenting blogger cum author in the form of WOW Parenting, who believes in the power of free play. The fact that kids need to be allowed to get bored, so that their creativity can find its natural course out has been emphasized upon very aptly.

Another reason why I am very impressed with this book is that it talks about the harsh reality that we as parents might be incapable of being the ideal role model for our kids.  What do we do in such a circumstance? As per the book, we set our kids up with people in or outside the family who can prove to be role models. Or expose them to stories of people who live by certain emulation worthy qualities.

P.S. – The focus of WOW Parenting throughout remains on defining our role as parents as facilitators and help our kids to prepare to move out of their comfort zone and honing up their creativity. All the while remembering that we are always there for them as their anchors.
