Gadgets in the lives of young children aged 0-12 is overrated!

Yes I know THIS and you know THIS very well by now if you have young children.

But what are we doing about this? I know if you have come this far and reading this page you are not one of those who simply like to leave things as they are especially when it comes to the well being of your child.

Me too! I am mother of two beautiful children and I realized back in 2015 that unknowingly I hooked my then 3 year old son to mobile and cartoon binging in the name of – learning and keeping him busy.

But as each day passed by and I was expecting my second child I realized this madness of my son being constantly addicted to the next screen time and all the manipulation around it has to stop. I simply could not afford two crazy humans in my home.

So I began my efforts, research, tweaks, to understand a whole lot of aspects of gadgets and its effects on young minds.

Today 4.5 years from then I am proud to say that I am helping my daughter learning very well without any gadget intervention and my son also enjoys his life outside gadgets.

Co-creating your family culture

Identifying your learning gaps
As a life and career coach I have received an opportunity to sit and coach people who are parents and I have realized a lot of knots and stuckness in their own life is the root cause of their own escapism and excuses of why they constantly feel tired and exhausted and confused being a parent. This constant negative chatter results in escaping in the lives of their young children naturally. This section will help us bring clarity so that we stop using excuses in our own life to be more available for the life we have brought into this world
