A couple of years back, it was the time of the year when I did a cleaning of my home. The session was over for the kids, and vacations were on. They would start their new standards after a couple of months.
It is OK for a girl to be a “Daddy’s girl,” but it is not OK for a boy to be a “Momma’s boy.”

I remember when I was a kid reading storybooks and comics was very common in kids. We did not have so many gadgets and channels. Nowadays, hard paperback books are replaced by online versions. But still reading books has its own charm and can be very engaging. With COVID 19 making everybody stay at home, introducing kids into this habit can be a beautiful way of engaging them.
“Mummy, you know what my friend did today? …..” And my chatterbox will go on and on once she is back from school.

Teenagers go through a lot of experiences the first time in their life with full consciousness. Hence, it’s obvious that most of the times they do not know how to react in certain situations. This makes them confused and sometimes agitated. As they are in the cusp of childhood and adulthood, they feel they know everything better than others and they are right in their reaction while they are not most of the time. Moreover, they do not prefer to open up to their parents anymore, they become closer to their friends.
