Cultivating resilience in childhood

I had a very happy childhood. I may not have realized it at the time, but it was: I lived in a safe neighborhood with lots of friends, we had family nearby, and we were very active in the community. Even after my parents divorced, I was a happy kid. And it may be because of their divorce that I had to grow up a little more and take on more responsibilities. In other words, I had to learn how to be more resilient.…

Adventures in Nostalgia

দৌড় (Run)

[English version has given below]
ছোট বেলায় সবাই আমাকে ডানপিটে বলত (আমার তা মনে হ্য়না)। ডানপিটে বলার কারন, আমার দৌড়াদৌড়ি আর চঞ্চলতায় সবাই ছিল বিরক্ত (আত্নীয় স্বজনের কথা বলছি)। স্কুলে গাছে উঠতাম (কিছুদুর উঠতে পারতাম, বেশি না) বলে অন্যান্য ছাত্রীরা বলত "কলমি" (একটা…

Let Them Be Little

Kids grow up fast, real fast. One moment they are sitting in the back of the car singing the ABCs, then next moment they are singing ‘hot line bling’. If you think about it, childhood is just small portion of life, not even 10%…I’m not sure who decided that childhood should be so short, but whoever made the decision, they totally got things backwards.

As parents, we want to raise our children to be functioning members of society. We want them to be good people, to know right from…

Growing up too soon

On the days that I think about it too much, I can't believe that my son is already five. Like most parents, I think that I blinked and he went from being a gurgling baby to a chaotic, smart, loving kid.…

Little hearts & curious minds

It's not surprising to see kids speak their mind, ask questions until convinced and have a say in everything that's happening around. We all agree technology rules the world today and kids being so smartly adapting to it is no wonder a boon in a true sense.

The Way We Remember

After I posted 50 Facts, a friend mentioned to me that she didn't know if she could write one herself. And it got me thinking in tangents about things I thought about writing here a while back when I had little time to blog but plenty of inner-chatter to chat out, if you know what I mean.



I explained to her that truthfully, that list of 50 took me a few years to complete. A little idea jumping out here and there on occasion, and…

Inspiring Resilience, Creating Hope

May is National Mental Health Awareness month. We have come a long way as a nation over the last couple of decades in how we view mental health issues, however, we still need to continue to improve the way people with a mental illness are viewed and treated.

Mental health is simply our emotional, mental, and spiritual health. It is just as important as our physical health. In fact, the two go hand-in-hand. It is important for us to realize that people of all ages, race, ethnicity,…

Asthma in Children – What is Asthma, Causes, Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment

I remember my oldest son had a lot of problems when he was a baby with frequent upper respiratory infections, wheezing, difficulty breathing, and asthma.  I never found out what triggered his asthma problems but I am assuming it is because he has sensitivity to environmental allergens.   In fact, now he only has to use an inhaler when he exercises outdoors,…

The Importance of Fathers in Their Children’s Lives

If you knew there was one thing our nation could do to improve every area of a child’s development, would you be in support of that one thing? Research shows children that have involvement from both a father and mother perform better in all developmental areas. Children need their fathers to be involved. For far too long, our country has seen fathers at best as an add-on to what mothers provide for children and in some cases fatherhood has been discounted altogether.
