We were without a cable or dish TV connection for more than 1 and ½ decades. Yeah, my children grew up not watching TV and they are fine, even though I assure you that it was not an experiment conducted on them so see if children can actually live without TV or not. It was just that I felt we were watching TV whenever we are bored without using the time for some creative activity or outdoor games. So, out went the TV from our lives and in came computers.

“My counselor did not criticize me like others; she was the only one to support me in my most important decision of life.”
Where it started?
Jamie, a 27 years old transgender from France was on the hospital bed, scared and perplexed. He was going to get operated in a few hours. It was the life changing operation. He was about to undergo a gender transference surgery and was missing his close ones.

In today’s competitive world, acing board exams is one of the ways children can ensure a financially secure future for themselves. Apart from being a good method of gauging what students have learned in the school, board exams also help students successful study skills, learn to correct their errors, develop the habit of practice and preparation for success, and also learn to handle the stress of competition in a healthy way. Though teachers are there to help the students understand subjects and learn and recall the information to write the exam successfully, parents can contribute a lot to the success of the child in board exams with their support.

One thing I have been highly successful at – Parenting! It has been an amazing experience for me to watch my children travel their journey of life and reach adulthood successfully. There have been tons of those moments when my son has appreciated me for being his mom. I know that my children appreciate who I am and admire and respect as much as they love me. But then are those special ones which we really appreciate and remember with love.
When Rayyan was in SSLC, he had tough time learning Urdu, which was compulsory for him. He was in a school where Urdu was a part of his syllabus. None of us had been exposed to the language during our school days.
Rayyan is mildly dyslexic and has trouble with languages in general. Urdu and Kannada turned out to be tormentors. He is a good student and follows the rules of schools well. He listens to his teachers and tries to learn the way they teach him. But unfortunately, with all their good intentions, our teachers are not equipped with methodologies which help children with LD to learn a language. In fact, we can say, that they cannot handle a child with different needs.

All the blessings in my life can be summed

into a wonderful human being.
