Honest wish to GOD


God! Take away these soaring eyes, take away;
don’t need them in this way.
Stoned Eyes lost charm in this bay,
Everything here is now dull & grey.

There were times eyes loved each sight,
now things looks meekly in terrific plight.
Nothing more good to view even in broad day light,
everything seems wrong nothing is right.
 
Wish to God- Aura Of Thoughts -MeenalSonal Poetry
Honest Wish to GOD!

Armour of Bravery


Daniel never worked for money and his fineness was always appreciated.

One demanding day, country lover lost his part in masterful victory. He didn’t welcome empathy besides was shattered over his brevity at the camp.

4 Ways for smooth Back to school phase


It’s time to get back to routine as the school summer vacations is getting complete. Long break is very
refreshing and fun for all of us but at the same time stepping back into the routine is not an easy task. So why not just drew away the routine blues by following these 4 simple ways. One of the ideas may work for you and your children and you can remain stress-free on first day of school.      
AuraOfThoughts - Transition from Holidays to School
Ways to make smooth transition from holidays to school days

1. New books - New lessons:  
Make sure that your child new books are neatly covered and labelled. Read few poems and chapters from it, and make the whole process interesting. Tell them how newness will add more colours to their schedule. New teacher’s new lessons new classroom all this new mantra keeps the spirits of a child up but a few of them feel a bit anxious. For anxiety parents can look for things with which child is comfortable. As a parent you understand every tiny bit of your child, pick the right notion at right time.
                                          
2. Party Poopers:
It is a great idea to throw a party just few days ahead of school reopening for your child and their friends and let them enjoy to the fullest. Let them be like free birdie singing, dancing, and playing and end the holidays with a bang and welcoming the new session with cheerfulness.

3. Yummy treat: 
Let your child cherish the favorite food in lunch box. Now-a-days there are ample videos through which we can prepare munch and lunch boxes healthy and yummy at same time. Yes look for what your child loves and present it with twist and innovative packing.

4. Walk the first step with kids:
First day tantrums are common for all age groups and kids are no exception. Let give school bus a miss and drop your child to the school. If that is not possible then go to bus stand with your child. Keep everything scheduled a day prior to avoid last moment hush –hush.

Handle the separation wisely and politely. A parent knows their child inside out, create the environment smooth and fill it with love and care for reopening school days and then you will realize that whole session is a great start. Yes to end a matter wisely, one has to start wisely, treat child carefully to gain their trust seemingly.

Unfair Comparison


Our parenting lessons just can’t be complete with this post on uniqueness of every child.

Every child has an inherent quality and this can be clearly seen among the contrasting nature of even the siblings. Their likes, dislikes, favourite food or color dosen’t match at all. If one easily makes friends while the other find some time to mingle.

Tantrum


Our 20th chapter in #ParentingIntangibleWonder series deals with tantrum and it’s effect. If you are thinking only children have tantrum and we adults manage things accordingly, then my friends you are half correct because even adults have tantrums and kids deal with it. Only difference is that kids can’t manage or explain us but we as adults manage their tantrums and sometimes play harsh on their unwanted demands.

Yes, friends it’s only that adults name their tantrums as habit, behavior, or so called their need to survive. Lets see few simple situations where we adults show our tantrum triat as kids.

Sound Sleep


Sleep and its importance in children and parent life is one the important aspect to deal with. You maybe wondering what is rocket science in this feature but let me tell you in this 19th part of the series #ParentingIntangibleWonder that SLEEP has few nuances and if done with few conditions then there is a magical transformation in child.

Yes, sleep is important part of our daily routine and most important for children too. It is advisable that children aged from 2-7 years sleep for 11-12 hours and 7-12 for 9-10 hours. Sleep is required rest by the body and mind, or one can say system reboots after a GOOD sleep. How one gains from a sleep is the key? Do you find child irritated after sleep or you meet an energetic child after sleep? Why contrasting outputs by same hours of sleep you may wonder.

Rejection


Lets hover over our 18th topic on how to teach the kids to handle rejections? This is among the pivotal lesson that every child should be taught.

We have seen many children getting annoyed or rather get very cranky when they lose a game or a competition. It is human nature where each one want to be at the top of the ladder, but that is not possible; sometimes we win and sometimes we loose. But the main prospect is to deal with the rejection with grace.

Quality vs Quantity


No we are not going to discuss quantity of toys or books or dresses your child demands. These are trifle issues when the matter comes to TIME.

Our 17th parenting topic is about Quality Time vs Quantity Time. 
Quality time is what kids need the most from you. One must savour the quality moments spent with kids as that lasts in our memories forever and will never come again.                                   
Lets us take a simple example from our day to day life. If you are with your child and busy with your laptop or phone the whole day and if you say that they have spent a day with kids then you are incorrect!

Perfect Partner


The 16th extract from #ParentingIntangibleasset speaks about how one must involve the kids in the activities we do.
It’s very important to involve the kids in the activities of the house to let them understand the importance of each task in every aspect and moreover they feel attached to the activities and responsible.

Many a times we have seen elders avoiding the involvement of kids thinking they will not be able to windup things as fast as we elders do or they may put up ample questions which would delay the task. But it’s not the right way, we know children are great observant and are curious to act like us.

Negotiation Skills


“I want this Avengers game. I want it, want it want it!” Came the verdict from a child to his mother next to me in a toyshop, where I waited for the reaction of mother.
She said “we have a similar one at home”.

“But this is a new version, and even my friend has it”, replied enthusiastic child; and the next moment his mother even added this Avengers game to the billing list.

I kept on wondering child gave a proper reasoning to receive the game but here his mother couldn’t reason out for NO.

Leniency


The twelfth lesson on parenting deals with, when to be strict with kids, how much.
We will take each aspect one by one:

WHEN:
Its very thought provoking concept as to when we as elders should correct our kids and sometimes even possibly taking strict action. Its not right to always keep pressuring the kids to be focused should be an absolute no-no. Make them learn by setting examples; you do a task in a particular way then let the child observe you.

Kick Start Mornings


Lets walk towards our eleventh parenting topic, hurdle of waking up our kids in morning to get ready and off to school in time.  So many things need to be completed on time probably I should say in time.
