Parenting - The Most Joyful Journey

Out of all the significant things we do in our adult lives from acquiring an education to establishing ourselves in a career and tö achieving financial stability, the task that is probably most close to everyone’s heart is that of raising children. Nothing else evokes the kind of tremendous sense of responsibility and commitment as parenting our children does.

It is therefore not surprising that it also brings in a lot of anxiety and stress along, where in, we question and introspect everything that we do and wonder whether we are doing enough and whether we are doing it right.

With joint families slowly giving way to more and more nuclear families we all miss the presence of the older generation as our role models and their voice of experience and guidance. The changing times and the accelerating pace of llfe also bring in their set of challenges and we are all left grappling with many questions and self doubt.

In this context, every parent looks to some space where they can share their anxieties and fears and ask questions and raise doubts without the fear of them and their children being judged or branded.
