Fatherhood will bring in a lot of changes in your life which are clearly not what you were expecting and will give you a jolt of surprises, but of course in a good way.
Confusion Rules – ‘To be or not to be’ is the question. There will be a high level of emotional uncertainty. There will be a mixed feeling of helplessness as well as pride on being able to give birth to a new life.

Being a mom has made me so tired. And so happy. — Tina Fey
The lines above truly capture the essence of motherhood, don’t they? Motherhood is a joyous, rich and rewarding experience in itself, but it also brings about its own fair shares of anger, frustrations, squabbles and the like. Ask any mom whether she is happy, and the spontaneous answer will be a ‘yes’. Ask them to go into some details and most moms will start telling you about how difficult it is to parent a child between other responsibilities, and the daily struggles that they have with kids. And this is where the importance of being happy beyond the smile comes up.
Are You Really A Happy Mom?

We would like to very cautiously answer this as a NO. In short, there are no medical evidences that suggest that ghee helps in recovery of joint strength after delivery. However, we in India have been traditionally using ghee for postnatal care and there are many who follow it and swear by it to date, although the exact “science” behind it is not known. Let us look at both sides of the argument so that we can arrive at a logical conclusion ourselves.
Why Is It Believed That Ghee Helps In Strengthening Joints After Delivery?
During pregnancy, a woman’s joints weaken. After delivery, more so. Our body joints (e.g. knees, elbows) behave much like hinges or levers in a machine. And when the hinges or levers in the machines stop working well, what do you do? You put grease in them to reduce friction and ensure smooth movement. Some people believe that this is exactly what ghee will do to a weak joint in human body. It acts as a lubricating agent, smoothening the movement and strengthening the parts around. In addition to strengthening joints, ghee is also believed to heal the internal wounds that....

The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky – Margaret McMillan A child’s play is not just all toys and indoor games. Children acquire knowledge experientially through play, experimentation and discovery, which can be most effectively learned through outdoor play. Playing outside provides an opportunity for children to experience the world with all of their senses. To encourage outdoor play and learning, Action for Children’s Environment calls upon you to participate in a global movement Outdoor Classroom Day on October 12th 2017. A recent research shows that 73% of parents of a global survey strongly feel children acquire the art of teamwork when they play outdoors and 74% of parents are of the opinion that children become better at social skills when they play outside with friends more often. Additionally, 82% of parents believe that their kids are more creative when they are NOT hooked to technology. However, a new survey points out that 56%....
