The nesting period
The maternal instincts kick in for women generally in their mid-20s and can go on till they actually have a baby. During the fifth month of pregnancy; the "Nesting" instinct can set in.

Dealing with teenagers

Mistakes happen
Last week we discussed on managing pre-teens and gave you tips on this universally challenging issue. We also mentioned that you’re not alone and that every pre-teen or teenager (as we discuss in this blog) displays more or less similar characteristics. Teenage period in a person’s life is said to be very confusing and a time where mistakes happen. It’s perfectly alright to make mistakes but learn from them. There are two kinds of people - those that learn from their own mistakes and those that learn from others mistakes. Go back in time to when you were a teen, what kind of person were you?

The troublesome teenage period
Maggie is a mother of a 23 year old daughter but both of them remember the time when Trupti was in her teens and both agree it was a difficult time. Trupti was rebellious; she talked back and was very adamant. She had to win every argument and didn’t like it when things didn’t go her way. She also didn’t take anything seriously. She would waste too much time on unnecessary things like spending hours in front of the computer or on her phone. She was addicted to her phone which would constantly beep whether they were eating, watching TV or spending time as a family.
Comedian and talk show host Ellen Degeneres tried something recently when she put a typewriter and an old telephone in front of kids and they had no clue how to work them. It’s important that kids know the importance of old gadgets as well as modern ones. They should especially know the importance of books and not electronic gadgets.

Dealing with teenagers
If you’re reading this, are a parent of a teenager and are facing all the issues we’ve written about (see your kid in Trupti) then you are certainly not alone. Relax, there are thousands out there grappling with the same challenge like you are. To read up on tips on how best to handle your teen click here

Early signs of reading difficulty

Travel through books
Amy loves to read and always lists this as one of her favourite ‘to do’ things. The author she loves is Sidney Sheldon, the way he writes, sketches characters, the many twists and turns of the plot... What fascinates her is the way she can travel through time and space just by sitting in the comfort of her home. Amy also enjoys thrillers and mysteries and loves to read conspiracy theories - about famous singers who are thought to be dead but are actually alive, like Tupac Shakur, Elvis and Johnny Cash.

Her love for reading didn’t come to her very early. There was a time when she was younger and couldn’t read. Amy was a slow learner and took longer than peers. She was around eight or nine when she grasped the concept of stringing words together to form a sentence.

Early signs of difficulty
There are many such cases where children learn things late and are slow bloomers. This isn’t something to worry about because they will learn as they grow. Children show many signs early on and if detected measures could be taken to tackle the issue. One thing to look out for is the way they handle spellings and the interchange of letters and numbers - a sign of dyslexia. This isn’t a major issue either because many of the brightest minds and celebrities are dyslexic. Albert Einstein was one and so is Tom Cruise. There are sure signs and to know more about it and how you can identify it early. For more information, click here
