Ever Said 'Do not touch' To Your Kids?

When you say "Don't touch this" indicating something to your children, what happens? Their curiosity bones keep tickling them to touch that thing which is supposed to not touch.

Children these days are very curious about their surroundings. They want to touch and feel every new thing around them. Their continuous exploration of the world mostly happens with touching objects that pull their attraction. And they are unstoppable when they are being told to stay away from them. Stray dogs, dirty swings of the park, dust-covered vehicles, as you said "No, don't touch it", the first thing children do is to touch it to find out why not to touch!

For kids, touching is learning. They understand new things mostly by touching and playing with it. And in this process, they get their hands dirty and come in contact with a lot of germs. This is the thing that we mother fear. We want to keep kids safe from germs and any kind of bacterial infection. That's why we keep saying No to things that look dirty to us. 

However, just one habit that can keep our kids safe from falling sick is "Hand washing". If we can inculcate the habit of hygiene in our kids, they can keep exploring the world withing getting sick. To showcase the same idea, Godrej protekt conducted a short experiment by putting objects in front of kids and telling them to not touch it. Thus instilling a sense of curiosity in them to check the object by touching it. Watching this video below to understand this cute experiment.

In this video, we see kids staring at the ‘Do not touch’ signboards wondering what to do, and then going ahead and doing just what was expected of them – touching! We find them touching everything, from wet paint to dirty cars, to learn more about them. 

Godrej protekt as a brand believes that parents must let their children be children and encourage them to step out of their homes to explore the world. They feel that parents should allow children to touch everything in their surroundings to understand it. And with their hand hygiene products, Godrej protekt is helping parents in encouraging kids’ natural tendency to learn about the world around them, through touch.

As parents, we can't keep our kids always inside our houses. They will go out for sure, and once they find the reason to touch something, they do naturally. They will do what they instinctively feel like doing, and that’s how they learn. And we parents must not really come in the way of their fact-finding. Rather we should focus on instilling good hygiene habits (like Hand Washing and use of sanitizer when needed) in them. We should make sure they stay safe and healthy during their exploration days. Let's stop germs, not our kids.

#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.

The First Post Of #MyFriendAlexa 

Coming back to the title of this post, I know you might be awed to read it. Of course, there is no discrimination who can read the blog and who not. Our blog…

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…
