Times have changed and so have the ways kids learn. That’s where smart play and logical activities that help them learn in an interactive way become effective. 

In a candid interview with BabyChakra, mum Disha Shah shares how sensory play, logical activities and interactive games have been her way.

Disha Shah Shares Her Parenting Mantra

1. Please tell us a bit about yourself. 

I was brought up in Indore, MP where I did my B.Sc and M.Sc in Biotechnology. Then I started working in a pharma company for a while before I married. After marriage, I did B.Ed for a year and taught primary school kids for three years. After which I went on a break, I gave birth to a beautiful daughter Tvisha who is now 4.4 years old.

2. Please tell us about your profession. What motivated you to do what you’re doing and how did it start?

Content creation is my profession and it’s my daughter who motivated me to start this page. When my daughter was around two years old I used to involve her in a lot of sensory play and then I started documenting my journey on video and shared it on social media to help other mums as well. We completed two years of this journey on 1 July 2022.

3. How was your pregnancy journey? Did you face any challenges?

My pregnancy journey was good but yes postpartum was not easy. She was in NICU for fifteen days and had a pneumothorax and bacterial infection. Those were the most difficult days ever.

4. Husbands play a crucial role in raising a child, what are your views on equal parenting? How has your hubby helped you co-parent?

Yes, a husband does play an important role in equal parenting so when times were tough, he used to take night duties for the baby so I could get some rest. He used to spend time with her during the mornings and evenings. He would read to her and he still does that.

5. What future do you see for your daughter?

I just want her to be a good and kind human being first,  it is very important. Besides that, she can choose what she wants to do. Sometimes she wants to be a vet and sometimes an artist! 

6. Can you suggest some ways in which children can improve their fine motor skills?

For fine motor skills, I believe parents should work on the pincer grasp of the child. Doing an activity with pom-poms, spatula, forceps, etc. helps in the finger dexterity of a child.

7. Why do you think that sensory play is important for kids?

Sensory play has its own benefits – it calms the child and it has worked for us till now. Sensory play helps develop all the senses of a child which include touching, smelling, feeling, seeing and hearing. Sensory play helps finger muscles too.

8. What are skilled-based activities for kids and why are they important?

Skill-based activities are activities which help the child in improving particular skills. It can be either social-emotional, cognitive, bilateral coordination, or early maths skills 

Mum Disha Shah says parents must provide a healthy and happy environment for their children to flourish

9. How can kids improve their learning skills?

Kids can improve their learning skills by practising each topic they decide on daily and reiterating it with them. I would say adding an element of fun to learning is most important. Use various resources to make learning activities fun and at the same time logical too.

Last but not the least, I believe that kids are like wet clay. They will be moulded the way you mould them. So let’s give them a healthy and happy environment to live in and teach them good values.
