Make your child feel special with these 15 ideas

Our lives with our kids are going smoothly. We are happy and contended but whether our kids feel so? 
Kids are very imaginative in nature and they believe in freedom, trial runs, and frequent changes. On the other side, we adults like a stable life without much change or experiment. It's always easy to live our lives without excitement and surprise but for kids tiny surprises or random moments of being silly break the usual boredom of life and make them feel the top of the world. Here are some of the things that we parents can do to surprise our kids and make them feel special. Not every day we should do them and some of them can be done once in a while but testing out these ideas with little customization will show your kids you are thinking of them.
Some super cool ideas which kids love:
1. Your kids must be doing art/craft work. Get their artwork framed and put it in your living room. Let others know your kid's talent and when guests admire your kids, they'll feel special and happy.
2. After picking kids from school, you are heading for home. How about stopping at any ice-cream corner and let them enjoy their favorite ice-cream? If weather allows, take them to the nearest park and let them play. Life can wait for few minutes but these moments will bring lots of smiles for your kids.
3. You always teach kids how to do things, instead let your kids teach you things, like a new game on your cell phone. They'll be delighted to get the opportunity of teaching elders something.
4. Mothers, let your girls wear your jewelry for play. I remember when I was a kid, I used to love trying out my mother's necklace. For precious ones, let your daughters at least try them with a note of being careful.
5. Have you thought about wearing jewelry made by your kids? I have seen many paper jewelry projects for kids which make really awesome bracelets and other stuff.  If you wear them they'll feel so proud. 
6. Change your phone's background with your kid's snap. You can change them daily or as per day/occasion. Like festival special pic, school pic, picnic snap or any other their favorite one. 
7. Surprise your kids with having breakfast with them on the bed only. Make their favorite breakfast and have with them on any holiday.
8. Say 'yes' for things for which you usually say 'no'. Like, stopping for candy or having another chocolate piece. Let them skip dinner and order outside food. 
9. When kids play, we normally keep us busy in TV, laptop, phone, books or in other domestic chores. Make your kids perky with playing with them.
10. Send them smiley notes in their lunch box. Not always they want healthy lunch so once in a while junk food in their tiffin box can bring a big smile on their faces. 
11. Kiss their nose, forehead, and cheeks when they are happy. But don't wait to hug them whenever they feel low.
12. Postpone domestic chore for reading storybook/comic for them.
13. Make mundane things enjoyable, like a tent with old saaries, playhouses with misquoting net and bath in open using garden water pipes. 
14. Praise your kids in front of their teacher, your relatives or friends. Or make sure they hear them directly or indirectly. 
15. Go to bed early a day before and get up early on Monday morning. Instead of yelling "hurry up", get them ready early for school. Instead of going through school bus, drop them school yourself. On the way, you can wait for noticing butterflies/flowers or can visit the nearby temple.  
When you wish to execute any of the points above, is totally your call. But doing these things will definitely assure your kids that you love them, you understand them and you care what they like to do.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
