Save Girl Child

I was the princess of my house, any wish that I had was command for my father. I was pampered and was loved by all. My brother or my mom everybody adored me. For my grannies I was the apple of their eyes or the shinning star and they fondly called me Lakshmi of the house. We were given a very beautiful upbringing with moral values instilled in us. We were always told to support the good and stand up against the evil. Still whatever I wanted was given to me be it a new dress or permission to go for outings with friends but yes there was a code of conduct to be followed.

IS IT TRUE BETIYAAN TOH PARAYA DHAN HOTI HAI IS IT TRUE BETIYAAN TOH PARAYA DHAN HOTI HAI

I have been an account student for more than five years and did my majors in this subject only. Also economics was my favorite subject. Thus a basic rule of the subject is that profit is what matters. It says that all investments should yield returns or you need not invest there. True any common person or uneducated person will also agree to these basic rules. As per the market trends you should invest in any investment or property or capital that yields good profit or belongs to you. All those investments that yield good and profitable results become hot cake and are appreciated by all. Isn’t that true? Where would you put your stake in your property or someone else’s property? I can see you nodding and thinking that am I crazy enough to state all this nonsense and ask such silly questions. You would say even a small kid can understand these basic rules and work accordingly.

All the above conversation is not useless all I want to prove is or state that the age old saying “betiyaan toh paraya dhan hoti hai.” Is either false or the laws of accounts or economics that run the world economy or the betel shop at the corner of your lane is false.

The answer is obvious you cannot dare to say that the laws of economics or accounts cannot be false. Then why are the daughters an exception? Starting with the birth of daughter let us travel the journey and try to visualize that is there any reason for her standing out of the common law? The mother endures the same pain as that of the son, or is there any concession when giving birth to daughters no or did the doctor or the hospital charged you a bit less while delivering the girl child as was so called paraya dhan. No luck, you feed your girl
child when she is hungry as you feed your boy child. Till now there was no difference so the time, money or resources invested is same. Lets not get in the love quotient as all child gets the same love from parents but daughters are more dear and near than the boys, all the love and pampering goes to them or lets say they have the upper hand here. I still remember the interview of David Beckham where he had tears in his eyes while discussing about his little angel. Getting to the education scenario girls or boys get the same education and for the same fees charged(we are not taking in to account those plans of government where to protect girl child or help her progress because of the society’s malpractices) As parents we try to give both our child similar opportunities.

Then why does a daughter stand to be “paraya” and your son be your own. I do not understand why eating at your girl child’s house after her marriage is not taken well or why does a daughter cannot take the responsibility of her parents and prove to a successful investment. A son is deemed to take responsibility of his parents even if does not want to do the same.

In an educated, civilized society if this attitude towards the female child does not end then at any point of time a lady will not get the love and respect that she deserves. We need to get in the gender equality society without any grudges in our mind. A son and daughter both should be your eyes. A daughter is never paraya she is all yours.

Stop Comparing Your Child!

When 2 parents meet the first thing after greeting each other all they talk about is Comparing the Child!. The comparison is the most common way to judge the performance of the child. It generally starts with comparing their weight, height, marks and what not. you use the same information to boost your child by saying see Tanu aunt’s daughter has scored 95% but this is the worst way to encourage your child. Stop Comparing Your Child!

A parent should understand the fact that each child is different, one can be artistic the other can be excellent at singing. Basically, a fish cannot fly and the bird cannot swim.Everyone has their own set of talents which should be acknowledged and motivated by the parents.

Stop comparing your child, it has a very bad effect on them when they grow up. you may consider comparison as a way to instigate the competition in the child, you may consider it as driving force to increase the performance but it doesn’t work that way. Comparison is the worst thing, which a parent can do to their child.

Here are some negative effects of comparison.So, Stop Comparing Your Child!

1. Building Up Stress
When you compare your child to other kid, your child feels burdened and you are indirectly pressurizing the child. This can have an adverse effect on the kids overall performance and they might be stressed.

2. Lower Self Confidence
When your child is being compared to others, your child believes that they are lower than others and others are always the best. They conclude themselves as incapable of doing anything since they cannot meet the expectation of their parents. The comparison can badly damage the self- esteem and confidence level of growing child.

3. Runs Away From Taking Responsibility

If you are consistently taunting your kids by comparing them with others, they will run away from responsibility. Because at the end of the day they are going to be insulted for their act. They will also avoid public interaction as they consider themselves as incapable and worthless.

4. Unrecognized Talent
your child may be an excellent painter but you want them to be an athlete because some other child is an excellent athlete.They will suppress their talents because they understand that it is never going to be appreciated. The painting talent will go totally unrecognized.

5. Avoiding Interaction
The child will clearly distance you from their parents since there is a lot of negativity build up by the parents. It is very clear to them that they are not going to get any appreciation from you and you will hurt them. The kids get usually insecure and avoid interaction with the parents.Eventually, it can lead to developmental issues. Some kids also have behavioral issues and aggressive nature.

Positive Approach to nurture the child
1.Create a benchmark
Appreciate each and every effort of the child. Let the child be his own competitor. This will increases the confidence.

2. Support them during the weak time

Always support and encourage your kids when they need help and guidance.

3. Praise their performance

Even if your child has scored the 3rd position and not 1st, praise their
efforts and hard work.

Will My Vegetarian Child Face Nutritional Deficiencies In Future

We both as a couple are pure vegetarian since we belong to the marwadi community.We have passed on the same values to my daughter. my little one is totally an animal lover and hates when animals are harmed. Additionally, she is also not very fond of the strong smell of all non-vegetarian food. But, I also agree with the fact that vegetarian food diet is not enough to fulfill the child's nutritional requirements in the long run. They may require growth nutrients and minerals which are available only in non-vegetarian food sources.

Ultimately the question Will My Vegetarian Child Face Nutritional Deficiencies In Future rings up in my mind and you may think majority of us grow up being pure vegetation and all are doing good. They why suddenly this question. But, with the time , change in lifestyle and environmental factors the nutritional values of food items are getting low
day by day. We need to pay a hefty amount to buy organic and pesticide- free food, which may or may not be even trustworthy. The vegetarian food available today is no longer fresh and are genetically modified. All this is totally unsafe for the child.

My biggest concern was to ensure the best practice for healthy vegetarian eating in food. I don’t want to force feed my child at the same time I don’t want her to grow up with inadequate nutrient values. I have replaced the
non-vegetarian items with healthy alternatives so that my child does not face any nutritional deficiency in their growing years.

1) Protein
Growing kids require a good amount of protein, the vegetarian food options like cheese, paneer, tofu, soya chunks, curd are a great source of natural protein. They are yummy as well as healthy protein options. Apart from this, you can include legumes, lentils. These are commonly available at Indian households and you can always sneak it into your child’s diet.

2)Calcium
Milk, soya beans, ragi, sunflower seeds etc are loaded with natural calcium sources and are excellent for bone development. They can be easily digested and you can include them in kids diet .

3)Iron
Iron-rich food is extremely important for overall growth and development of the brain and other vital parts. you can include spinach, dates, raisins, ragi into the child's diet to increase their hemoglobin level. Additionally, you can also give fruits like gooseberry, guava to your child they are loaded with Vitamin C and it helps to increase the iron absorption in the body.

4)Vitamin A
Vitamin A is very essential for eyesight and overall vital organ development. Load your kid’s diet with red and yellow bell peppers, carrots, tomato ect. Vitamin A is best to boost the immune system of kids.

5)Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are very significant for the brain development.Vegetarian food options like flax seed, walnuts, canola oils are loaded with natural omega 3 fatty acids.

6)Iodine
Iodine is crucial for the mental development especially in kids to avoid health issues like a goiter. you can include natural unflavored yogurt, iodine salt into the meal of your child.

10 FUN ACTIVITIES AND GAMES FOR CELEBRATING CHILDREN’S DAY AT HOME AND SCHOOL.


14 TH November is approaching and its time to gear up to celebrate Children’s day. I truly believe that each and every day is to be celebrated with our little sun shines, but dedicating a day exclusively for them is wonderful and it was a day that even we used to look forward to, during our childhood days. Lets take a trip down the memory lane and enjoy the fun filled day with our little munchkins.

1] Bake a cake– The kids love to bake a cake and what better start the day with your kitchen filled with the smell of freshly baked cakes. Try some innovative recipes, make a savory cake with the child to surprise the people. The kids can bake a chai cake with salted icing to surprise their dads.

2] Get your dream job– Every child has certain dreams and aspirations ask the kiddo what he or she aspires to become so if possible let them have a dummy session of their desired job. If they wish to

3] Marathon– Provide them a booster on health and importance of fitness regimes. Organize a marathon for a good cause, the main idea should be completing the race and not winning it. Each child should rejoice the feeling of
completing the race.

4] On a picnic– Nothing is better than going on a picnic, the winter has approached and taking a sun bathe in the park can be a wonderful idea. Carry some snacks and games to play at the picnic spot.

5] Visit to some museum– Plan an outing to some famous museum of your city. It would be an educational plus a fun outing for the kids.

6] Visit to some place of worship– Taking them to place of worship will inculcate a good value in them right from their budding phase. The power of prayers and its importance will be understood by the kids and it will help them to relax and distress.

7] A cycling expedition– In the wee hours of morning take kids out in a pollution free and traffic free zone. The fresh air will just freshen up their body and mind and get the day started for them. After the cycling tour just head for some protein packed healthy breakfast. A gift of health and inculcating healthy lifestyle in them will be the greatest gift for the kids.

8] A crafting tour– Get your kids started with some gift making. A recycling or upgrading program will just get them to know the creative side of their personality. They will learn a new art and rejoice at the fact of creating something new and interesting.

9] Dance party– Just groove to some peppy music and get the party started. Tap your feet to latest Bollywood tracks and have fun as you match beats with the kids and learn new moves.

10] Simply talk to them– The kids are exposed to various matters of stress from a very early age. Nuclear families and working parents all of these just leaves them alone. They do not have anyone to deal with their problems, big or small. They cannot share their feelings and talking to them will help them to unfold and open up. They will be able to get comfortable and get their issues resolved.

Small boy talking to his mother

The whole concept of celebrating Children’s day should be that kids have fun in an organic way rather than spending time in useless handful playoff or they should be introduced with few aspects of life.
