The kaleidoscopic lifestyle is a bit annoying now a day. Too much entertainment and attractions making the kids demanding and that affecting their psychology. Human psychology is a weird subject to understand. It will never make you sit contented even if you get the Moon in your hand, it will go next to own the Sun. Considering this fact, every day the parents are facing a lot of challenges. How tactfully to tackle their kids without disturbing their sudden impulses totally restraining the demands on the spot, is a lesson to learn for each one of us. Parenting is one of the toughest jobs to handle and the success reaches the summit when the parents watch their children at the pit of success. Now this word ‘Success’ is complicated and confusing. And each one of us has a different definition and vision for Success. A survey has seen that most Indian parents mainly the Bengali parents seek success in scoring good marks. That means the pressure for opting good scores in exams making the little brains overloaded. Even the schools are to be blamed for it too. Too much pressure of study is hindering the mental age. Kids now a day are maturing ahead because they are learning everything before age and the childishness is getting killed at an innocent age. Therefore, it is very necessary for the parents to understand the kids’ psychology and their needs. Affection can make them a better person. But affection doesn’t mean to shower plenty of gifts to show how much we love them. We need to give them our time, play with them and hear their stories for hours. I raised this topic only to know as a parent what kind of challenges do you face and how do you make your parenthood successful. I have thought of writing serial posts on parenting, the challenges we face as a parent. I will share few incidents that were really challenging for us and how we tried to solve that matter from my next post.
I always feel Food makes a relationship and bonding more stronger. Believe it or not, for me, it really works. The relationship with Miss Picky Pie always gets better when we are making any dish together. She will choose a dish and we both will work on it. She will learn the ingredients and the procedures how to make it. She will help me with her tiny little hands. And we will share few secrets i.e what is going in her school. I will teach her the role of good behaviour in our life. How Honesty makes one perfect. One should have the courage to accept his/her fault – that makes one stronger and happy at the end of a day. I have seen my mother never scolding us rather she would shower us with affection at our each fault and explain why it was bad. And believe me, we had never ever repeated that thing in our life again. I have seen anger and scolding making Miss Picky Pie more agitated and the next day she would repeat the same thing the way I acted. I realised then that kids are actually the mirror image of our life. Maybe we don’t understand or pay attention to it they copy our each and every action, even the way we talk, the words we are using everything. Therefore, as a parent, we realise that first we have to set an example of an ideal person in front of them. And that is an exam that we are appearing every day. At the end of the day, I evaluate my score and prepare myself for the next day. These Simple Cherry Vanilla Cupcakes are one such dish that we both mother-daughter enjoyed making together. Most of the part was made by the little one. It is very simple to make and should be consumed within two days. It should be stored in the refrigerator. In Celebration of the Cherry season before it fades off here is the recipe of Simple Cherry Vanilla Cupcakes.
