Stick To Your Resolutions
Mother & Baby India|January 2022
Just because you have a new baby does not mean that you cannot make New Year resolutions. M&B works out some cool ways to keep your promise...

Trip to Paris. Fit into college jeans. Get a new job. Fuelled by year end cheer and holiday hope, you’ve drawn up a list of resolutions that seem so obviously do-able that you chide yourself for not having tried already!

But before you realise it, your baby has been cranky all night and you’re reaching out for chunks of chocolate and cheese the next day. You hate your boss’s sexist jokes, but worry about finding a new job where you can take off for last-minute appointments with the paediatrician. The invites to weekend getaways from single friends have reduced to a trickle, because every time they call you go, “Hello! Who’s going to take care of the baby?!!”

It’s time to transform marriage and motherhood into an unstoppable force that drives you to your dreams. Realising your resolutions is more about the mind and not so much a matter of circumstance. After all, single, footloose and fancy-free women fail at resolutions all the time! (Remember your previous life?) Mums who’ve been there and done what you probably want to do, demonstrate how you can juggle individual goals and motherhood efficiently, and come out on top of the world...

“As a mother, you have to stop being completely selfless, stop just meeting demands and learn to make some of your own too,” says Namrata, while tending to her second child — two-month-old Surya!

“In the long run, your children will respect you for having fulfilled your dream, you contribute monetarily to the household and also get a sense of immense personal satisfaction,” she adds.

What’s not worth the stress of a baby under one arm and a business plan under the other?

Parenting A Social Media Generation

Social media gives kids a way to connect with friends and family, and express themselves to a larger audience. However, there are also many dangers to it: false perceptions which lead to unattainable standards, the lengths people will go for creative content, and online bullying, to name a few. And while those worries are normal, they can be balanced out with some helpful and hopeful information.
