From the Expert

Five year old Rohit walked around his classroom, aimlessly intimidating his younger friends, kicking them randomly for no reason and playfully smacking their backs. When confronted by his teacher, Rohit said “ I thought that’s O.K. as my dad always smacks me when we are together.” Here you have the case of an innocent five year old who has socially learned that it is ‘harmless’ to physically abuse others. The time spent with his dad left a detrimental impact which is very challenging to ‘unlearn’. It is a well established fact that how parents spend time with their children has an unfathomable impact on their holistic development.

Born and brought up in the cultural city of Vadodara, it was like a dream to get married to the love of my life, despite the little struggles. My husband was a party animal and he loved taking me along to all his booze parties.

You know what I tell these people? “It can’t be women always! There’s something called ‘Sperm’ responsible to make you pregnant, if the sperm count is less, the chances of fertility narrows!”

Being a mother is the desire of every woman. Once she becomes a mom the child becomes the centre of her thoughts and actions. If the kid is just a baby, stroking and cuddling the baby would be more of a concern.
