Kelloggs Chocos - The Mantra of Buddy Parenting


Kids they drive you crazy, they make you seem dumb, and they make you happy. But altogether the time spent with them is precious. The sweet moments that we enjoy with them are like a passing mist, it just melts off so quickly. The time flies by and they are out into the big wide world, leaving you gasping with empty nest syndrome.

Neymar haircut

The kids are having their summer holidays in the Middle East countries. The son wanted an X-box 360 and a haircut like that of his favorite football player, Neymar. I really do not have any knowledge about the video games, but I wanted to inculcate certain strong values like hard work and sincerity in him. Moreover, I wanted him to know the value of money.


So I asked him to do some cleaning of which he gladly agreed. We have two balconies, one of which is cleaned almost weekly. The other one was quite dusty. The boy offered to clean that. It was very hot outside.

But he worked so sincerely and cleaned the entire balcony. I felt a wave of happiness inside of me. As promised he had his Neymar haircut that same evening. His father was so pleased with him that he bought him the video game.

The boy is so happy that he devotes his time to clean the shelves, shoe rack, kitchen drawers on a daily basis. At the end of the day I feel so happy that I have taught him the value of hard work.

Barbie play

The daughter is very much interested in dramatics, but less interested in maths. She does puppet shows with her Barbie dolls, enacting the story of the Disney film Frozen. She makes me sit and watch all those boring plays, while my mind busily plans ways of how to teach her skip counting and multiplication.


And so I made a deal with her. I will watch her boring doll show for 15 minutes and even publish her doll’s photo in my blog so she can brag about it to her friends, in return she has to study maths for one hour without murmuring, complaining and whining.

Well the deal worked out, but with a little murmuring of course, because I extended her study time to another 30 minutes. At the end of the day I got my work done and she made me see her puppet shows, without me dozing off in the middle.

She even threatened me that if I dozed off, she would never ever study maths again in her life. So I applied glue to my eyes and watched her doll show. This is how life is all about with the kids.
Take care
Swarnam
