It’s all about the money – Financial Tips For Kids!

How many of us look back at childhood and wish we were introduced to money and financial tips at an early age?

KidEngage Reads : Pink and Blue by Ritu Vaishnav

One of the easiest way to introduce or reinforce a concept in the impressionable mind of a toddler or a preschooler is to do it through picture books.

The Most Important Life Lessons – Is Your Child Learning Them?

As parents we assume that our whole and sole duty is to feed, clothe and send our child to school. After they come back from school, we make sure that they do their homework, study for the exams or go to the tuitions.

So, getting back to the choc- a- bloc routine of the school after the long summer holidays can cause some serious blues to even the happiest of the lot.

Does Yelling Make You a Bad Parent?

Does Yelling Make You a Bad Parent?

But is it fair to weigh yourself down with the guilt of damaging their psyche on a permanent basis? After all, there are enough and more articles and opinions that talk about how detrimental it is to yell at our kids, and that there is no bigger villain than a parent who shouts! While I am in no way encouraging or justifying yelling, I

A Child’s Achievement – the Importance of “I did it!”

“I did it!” These three simple words are possibly the most important ones that your child will ever utter. For, not only has your child achieved a task, but they have also identified that they have accomplished said task, and feel proud about it!
