Parenting Tips

Greetings from the Edu-Paedia family.

We live in a world which is a melting pot of cultures. A question that has been bothering me is how do I define who I am ... I am an Indian but what is my identity? A strange question is it not? 

With the innumerable influences, we are exposed to, our young wards with an innocence embrace everything they see, hear and experience.  Our young ones should with pride proclaim that they are Indians.  Let us share with them the stories of our great patriots, tell them about our culture and traditions. Let them not grow up wondering what is Indian culture. Our culture is simple. It is about togetherness, sharing and giving back something to society.  It is about respecting elders and respecting our flag, national anthem and our national holidays.  

With the Republic Day, just a few days away, let us make it a personal celebration. Make sweets at home, celebrate the nation and spread the joy of being an Indian. Encourage your child to go in the neighbourhood and wish everyone on the Republic Day. We would thus create a sense of national pride.

Warm regards,

Happy Makara Sankranti, Lohri, Bihu, Pongal, Uttarayan

Greetings from the Edu-Paedia family!

Happy Makara Sankranti, Lohri, Bihu, Pongal, Uttarayan

We hope that your child has shared the significance of Sankranthi with you and has taken your blessings . Let us encourage them to visit two more neighbours and share the ‘yellu bella’.
There is a saying in Kannada "yellu bella thindu olle maathadi" that translates to 'eat the mixture of sesame seeds and jaggery and speak only good.
Looking for the good, seeing the good, hearing the good and speaking the good creates a positive outlook. There is enough violence and cruel things happening in the world. In the formative years, if we create a culture of identifying goodness, we can mould and nurture emotionally strong and happy children. Encouraging children to follow a few traditions and cultural practices at home, creates an awareness of their roots and they are quick to follow it. Discuss with children the significance of thanking the mother earth for her bountiful creations. The harvest time indicates the kindness of nature and we need to teach our children to respect nature and be thankful.

Warm regards,
