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.

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:

#MyFriendAlexa - Is Your Blog For Everyone?

A Bit of Introduction 

Two months back, I joined a new company as a software project manager. And with this, I also shifted to a new city. I could not write much during this shifting time, as there were many other things that needed my attention on priority. With a new job, new city and a new house, I faced challenges of finding a new school for my kid, a new market where I can buy staple items and a new setup for my family which was in habit of living a comfortable life in Delhi. #MyFriendAlexa I took as an opportunity to proffer life back to my blog which was the most neglected entity of my world during this movement and adjustment span. My target is to write 8 posts for #MyFriendAlexa campaign in which 4 will make you a bit more compassionate person, and remaining 4 will make you more informed.
