An unexplored arena for me… Would like to try and check possibilities.

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!

  1. Yes, you are right. To engage children in something or more precisely into things you want them to be engaged in is story telling. Adding to this I would tell you that to engage children with you, you need to know what they like. Once you know what they like you can always use those things to divert them from some mean things. But beware that such things should be used at appropriate places only, overuse or misuse of such distractions can cause the child to loose interest in that particular thing.

    At last I want to tell you that your blog is really nice. Keep posting such good articles.

  2. Thanks, Prasad. This blog is just a medium for me to post stuff which i read and would like to save somewhere and read again and again.. So will keep posting.. 🙂

    And regarding the way to engage kids.. Rightly said.. Sometimes in the want to have children to “listen” to us, we might pamper them with unnecessary distractions. So will have to be doubly careful. And then, like to everything else in this life, Balance is the key…
