My six-year old knows most aspects of menstruation and how babies are born. Yes, you read it right. If you want to know the whys, hows, and what ifs of it, then read on. I hope this will prove helpful to all those who are on the fringe of whether or not to talk about the bird and bees.
So, it all started because my husband and I had decided not to lie to my son or give vague answers when it comes to feeding his curiosity. I am always a proponent of normalizing menstruation talk and pushing it beyond hushed voices and taboos.
My son asked how was he born, and we would both told that he came from my tummy. As he grew his questions grew and he asked how was he able to breathe inside. We explained him everything about the umbilical cord and how it transferred nutrients from mom to baby.
His questions obviously did not end at that, he went on asking more questions and the maximum that we could tell him was that you need two seeds to form a baby, one from dad and one from mom. Luckily at this very time @our.world.of.words posted a very interesting book by @corysilverberg "What makes a baby" I highly recommend this book to all parents because it explains the concept of sperms, egg, and an uterus without sexualizing it. This provided a great insight about how he was born in an age appropriate manner.
Then what about menstruation? How and why that topic?
I suffer from dysmenorrhoea, which gives me immense pain in my lower back during periods. My son would hear us talking about it and see my husband giving me a hot water bag. Once while we were talking, my son suddenly said, "are you talking about Whisper? (a sanitary napkin brand)" We were stunned to hear this and realized he has seen sanitary napkin ads on television. Because we had decided not to lie, we explained him how this occurs to women only starting from teenage, how the egg (he had learned earlier from the book) passes out of the uterus, and the cramps gives pain while bleeding.
This is all he knows. And I am so glad I explained this to him because the other day he told my husband to gift him a hot water bag for Diwali 🙄 Guess why? He wants to take care of his wife when he grows up 😁

; Tips to motive; kids for their successful and joyous future; ; ; ;; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; Quite often every parent have a question in their minds that how kids can be educated and successful in their future? What habit should we cultivate to make their life better in future? ; ; If you want to give your kid a better life then start cultivating 5 habits not from today but from now. ;Sharing
Make it a habit in children to give. When we were small, we are told to share whatever we get to other members of our house whether it's a chocolate or some kind of sweets. When my kid was a toddler, he never used to share anything with anyone. Then I keep on explaining to him that giving is good symptoms of good boys. Then he started sharing things with others.we can't force them but can make them understand with a good set of examples. Reading.
Children should have a habit of reading books. Knowledge comes from reading books. Children often watch TV YouTube, but they get information from them.we as parents should develop this habit from a young age itself. Exercise.
As we can see, competition is growing rapidly fast. Only one thing remains between all these races is that their health. Put them in activities from a young age so that they should be healthy. If your child is successful and not healthy then he cannot be happy. So do engage them in activities like sports yoga, swimming classes etc. Appraisal
In today's era children don't value the thing which they get very easily. Children learn by observing us. From now on, we also have to do appraisals for everything. Then, children will start appreciating after seeing us.
Try something; creative;
We should encourage our kids to try something new like drawing, craft or DIY activity. While they grow up this habit will make them confidence and they will start an experiment. In that way, they learn quickly. The people who are successful have tried so many new things. If our kids want to try something new be with them encourage and support them these are the chances to become happy and successful. Every Sunday Instead of taking your kid in a restaurant or any mall try something new with them and this makes fast development of your kid's brain.
Why should we stop yelling at our kids? ; ; As a parent we always worry about our kids when they flee here and there.our concern making us to yell at them.i know we should give them chance to explore but what to do they are everything to us.once we yell at them for some reasons we feel bad after sometime and make us guilty that we should not have done that instead of explaining them about our concerns for them.;
; ; ;But it effects them in many ways like
Kids who are being continuously yelled at ,they lack self confidence and always step back whenever they face any challenges.They start to ignore the friends.They will start to show aggressive behaviour like fight and hit their friends which; will make bad impression for other kids as well their parents .They won't speak in public places mostly.And the main point is lack of concentration.Children are afraid of shouting at them Children often think that mother and father do not love them and hence they are angry.Children often think the same, so they do not able to study.
; ; ; ;It is very difficult to control; the anger when kids not behave properly isn't it.but we have to control otherwise it will effect them badly .
; When my kid would not listen to me I would get angry and smile falsely grab him near to me with love and try to make him understand with examples or share my childhood experience. And make sure that he should not repeat it in future . sometimes I make promises to buy him his favourite toy or to read him stories.
; ; ; We should make them understand the reason behind it and we should say sorry if they got harm by our words.And our voice should be low when talking to them.They should know that we have value for their help
; ; Let ur kids know that you love them you like them . Encourage them for their skills and talents which would get better in future.Most important one is let them know that mistakes can be happened at any time with any one .We can learn many things from mistakes.
; ; ; I hope you are agreed with my post .if you feel some points has been missing to add please share ur points in my comment section
This is a true candid photo that my son clicked while I was working from home yesterday. There is no coffee in the mug. I was holding this mug because my son offered me some fake coffee with LEGO blocks 😂. And if you know this, you cannot say "no" to this offer.
I decided to use this unedited, unfiltered version just to show how similar we all are. We all are sailing in the same boat. None of us get dressed to work, none of us really care if hair are undone. All that matters is we continue to remain safe during this #covid2019 pandemic. .
There are innumerable reasons why I am grateful. There are others who are infected and had to be quarantined, there are some who are away from their homes just waiting to go back, while others who pray they could earn just one more penny to get through the day. .
We've got this. This will end, soon.
If you are reading this, I hope you have enough reasons to be grateful 🙏. So what's your reason today?
