Sudha showed me our ParentEdge fan page today – with “100 people like this” text sitting happily in the sidebar. When the ParentEdge marketing team was planning the social media outreach plan for the magazine a few months back, we were laying out plans to get more and more people to “like” us. It has taken time with 2-3 fans coming in every day, but Rome was not built in a day. Through a lot of diligence and word-of-mouth publicity, we can now proudly say that “we have scored a century!” It may seem like a small achievement, but we are in a mood to celebrate!
- Like a toddler who draws his first squiggle
- Like a young girl who gets her first Barbie
- Like a 6 year old who scores his first goal
The key is to give yourself good karma points for even the smallest of achievements – both yours and your child’s ! So, what are you waiting for? If your daughter gets a star in school for finishing her lunch box cleanly, get her that promised lollipop. If your son’s essay got selected for the school’s essay writing contest, buy him a new pen. If you managed to pack your child’s their favourite meal and get her to the bus stop first before anyone else – give yourself a pat on the back Go ahead – celebrate every small moment of joy!
