Just the other day, I had a long-overdue conversation with a friend. It seems she’s been busy running after her toddler, getting all her chores done, and of course, has little time left to herself. I remember offering what I thought would be some reprieve, that her daughter would be starting school soon, to which she replied, “It’s barely three hours a day. Sometimes, I wish it were a little longer. She has way too much energy and it’s getting hard to keep up with her!”
Of course, it didn’t end there. She went on about how difficult she found it when it came to getting her daughter to open up at the school interview, or when it came to shopping for everything she needed for her school year. It was a nightmare. This discussion got me thinking. Often, simple things that aren’t really issues, do end up being the biggest reasons for stress. This is why, our June issue is the ‘Back to School’ edition. From must-have school bags, identifying your child’s learning styles to give her the right start, to helping her crack that school interview, we have something that we think you need. Perhaps, this is our own little way of trying to ease your worries.
Apart from this, we have an article that will help lull your child into a restful sleep, some mother and baby yoga poses to make exercise fun, and an article answering that muchasked question: ‘What is it really like to give birth?’
We do hope our June issue makes for an interesting read. Till next time!
