Small Talks which can be a better start

Ideas to make them help in the kitchen with vegetables.
  • In a week decide a day they going to clean these vegetables or peel it
  • Tell them we going to use these cleaned vegetables which they cleaned to cook and let everyone know they helped with the cleaning of vegetables.
  • Praise them, children love when they are praised, appreciated, applauded and given attention
  • Pick a game such as counting, name the colour, parts of plants, racing, and make them sit.
  • Make them put each vegetable in the container and let them open and close those containers.
  • Children love to play with containers and open and close the lid many times. This will keep them occupied much more time.
  • Let them carry those containers and keep them in the refrigerator or designated place. They enjoy doing these tasks of carrying as well.
  • Give them two containers one is for waste and one is for vegetables. This will improve their analytical skills and sorting activities.
  • Make mistakes and see how they correct you. Example-Mix waste and vegetables in one box and see how instantly they correct you.
  • If you asking them to peal boil potatoes let them smash those potatoes. They will definitely help you next time.
  • You might ask them to make potato balls and count them.
  • Enjoy bonding time with them
  • Look at their precision
  • Tell them how plants and vegetables are grown. Who grows them etc.

Lockdown:Father -Son bonding

This pandemic might be tough for parents and caregivers due to lots of reasons, managing household, children, office and whatnot. Living in a metro city doesn’t give you much time with your family. Working parents are not able to give much time to their kids or themselves. So this lockdown is considered as a boon even after so many cons and other days to day challenges. We look at it with the eyes of a father.

The hormonal changes which are at the highest and strongest point in your whole life are going to make you cry at any poi
