Parenting is a difficult task. There is no set formula for raising the kids. In today’s fast-paced world, with economic crunch looming large over every ones head, most parents find it very difficult to spend quality time with their kids. With the advent of ‘nuclear family trend’, children are usually kept in the company of nannies. To compensate their absence, most parents shower expensive gifts on their kids and rarely say ‘no’ to them.

Over-indulgence and giving in to their every whim and fancy can turn them into’ spoilt brats’ as they will not value and appreciate the things.

In today’s E-age’, children are exposed to the modern gadgets and gizmos at an early age. To keep pace with the new age and surge ahead children need proper guidance, valuable advice, unstinting support, vigilance, caution and care of their parents. It is a tough task but rewarding and fulfilling.
