Happy Parenting : I just feel nowadays, we need to change our parenting skills. Children of new generation are not the same as the previous generation. You just must take the values and ethics from the ancient times and put it into your child in a different pattern. Let me tell you what I feel about the modern-day parenting.
- BECOME YOUR CHILD’S FRIEND
If I would share my experience with you, I have a 15-year-old daughter. She has so many friends but still I’ve managed to become her best friend and she managed to become mine. I’ve started competing with her in learning the answers/ reading the chapters. I go shopping with her, chit chat a little with her, talk about my school times with her and trust me she enjoys a lot and so do I.
Even if it’s late, I realised that the best way to know in and out about your child is becoming his/her best friend.
- TRUST YOUR GUT FEELING
Use your intuition to raise your child. I would like to tell you that there are no fixed rules or steps which are needed to be followed in parenting. Every individual is a different parent and so is every child. Tailor your parenting techniques keeping in mind, both, what suits you and what your child needs. Keep your child’s interest in mind but stay alert and very careful not to fall in the trap of helicopter parenting.
Make some time everyday to spend with your little one. It can be anywhere, like in your bedroom, parks, beaches and have a conversation with him/her. I personally feel this is a master tip among all the tips. By communicating, you get to know your child much better in many ways. I make sure to take my daughter to a park daily and we sit there for almost 30 to 45 minutes. We have conversations regarding her friends, teachers, sports, latest trends, etc. which is again so much fun to do.
Those 30 mins are the most relaxing ones in my entire day. You can also make this time very productive by teaching her values, ethics, manners, difference between wrong and right, discipline, respect etc. If my daughter does something wrong or behaves in an inappropriate manner, this time becomes the perfect time for me to make her understand and realise about her mistake. Yelling and shouting at their mistakes doesn’t work these days.
- STOP COMPARING YOUR CHILD
Now this is again a very big mistake which we as parents make. It’s high time to understand that every child is meant differently, has inherited different traits and qualities of different parents. Latest studies have proved it that comparing your child leaves a bad impact on him/her. Let me share a story of my neighbour Shamita and her daughter Diya.
Diya and one of her cousins were preparing for an IIT entrance test. Unfortunately, Diya could not clear it even after 2 attempts, but her cousin did it at once. Her parents started comparing her with her cousin. Their every conversation would end up comparing both the kids. As a result, Diya went into depression, and totally lost herself confidence. She became very unconfident about her decisions. She required a medical help to recover from that phase of her life.
We as parents always want the best to happen in our child’s life, but this method of comparing children is clearly not working nowadays because the repercussions are very bad. Nowadays, it has become the most dangerous step towards raising a child.
- EXPRESS YOUR LOVE IN ACTIONS
My daughter loves it when I give her a hug or cuddle her. She respects me to another level, and this is what makes our bond so strong. Being a child, he/she cannot understand your feelings without being expressed. His/her mind is not yet developed much to understand the unexpressed thing. As a result, he/she will not be aware of your love for your child (regardless of how deeply you love him/her)
Parenting is not such a small topic to be discussed, rather, it is a very huge and important chapter in our lives which needs to be discussed in a huge crowd. The thing about parenting rules is there aren’t any. That’s what makes it difficult. But keeping your precious time in mind, I would like to end this conversation here. Hope it becomes a helpful and useful content for you all. And last but not the least, I want to wish you “HAPPY PARENTING”. Author – Ritisha Jain

Visiting Cluster places
There is this obvious idea of planning the trip before entering the city and it is indeed very helpful. Since, London has a huge number of attractions and places to visit, travelers can easily fall into the trap of seeing everything at once and burning out without exploring properly. Thus, they should prioritize on visiting such locations that have maximum number of attractions nearby. This will not only save time but also a lot of money and there will be lesser or almost no zigzagging at all during the trip.
Using cycles to travel through London
It is one of the best ideas for exploring the great city. London has a system of providing cheap bicycles known as “Boris Bikes” that allow people to pedal their way through the city. These bikes can be picked up from any of the docking stations for less than about two pounds and park them back into another one at the destination. There are about seven hundred fifty docking stations and more than one thousand bikes. For travelers, this can be an excellent opportunity to explore every bit of London.
Go beyond the central regions
People usually only explore the center of the city and end up battling the crowds and wasting a lot of time and peace. Exploring some different sides of the city can be a different story altogether. Areas like Shoreditch, Hampstead, Greenwich, Stratford and Richmond have a lot to offer like massive parks, riverside pubs, top view of London city, local cuisines, Aquatic center of London and the epic Hampstead Heath.
Getting cheap accommodation
Acquiring cheap accommodation in such a busy city is not easy. However, one can lookout for some cheap hostels for tourists or if they don’t like the dorm beds then they can go for some capsule beds in some private dorms with multi-bed facilities.

Going for cost-effective locations
The location for the party can take a really big chunk of parent’s budget for the party. Usually, the places that are opted for are rental spaces for party like bowling alleys, recreational centers for kids, club houses, theme parks etc. Now, these places often charge a lot because someone else is making arrangements for the party and putting their personal services in. Going for inexpensive places like public parks, beaches, backyards or personal farms can be quiet a cheap deal. Plus, it will give ample amount of personalization opportunities for parents to express their love for children creatively.
Choosing the right time
Another key idea to keep the party budget under control is to opt for the right time and schedule for it and it is largely based on the quantity of supplied food. If the parties are being scheduled during noon or night time as per proper etiquette, then arranging for meals becomes imminent and those can take a good deal of cost. Otherwise, if the parties are during evenings or breakfasts, which are quite a fashion these days, it will require just some small snack servings and will cost considerably less.
Making digital invitations
Technology can be very helpful in pulling your parties under budget. Herein, one can use digital invitations like images, virtual cards, e-mails, messages to the guests instead of physical cards that are expensive. There are specific websites on the internet for designing and sending invitation cards.
Opting DIY solutions
Another key consideration is to go DIY as much as possible. This implies for decorations, making cupcakes, meals, desserts, designing playful games etc. One can also use quick and easily prepared snacks and food items like burgers, pizzas, hot dogs etc. These foods can even be opted as party themes, especially if they are being hosted during mealtimes.
