My Experiences with ParentEdge

A valuable thing I learnt at ParentEdge was the art of interviewing. This is particularly important because it can be applicable in any career – at some point, you are either going to be interviewed or hopefully, are going to be the interviewer! I conducted interviews with parents of children going to middle school, entrepreneurs, a teacher, and a psychologist. This usually involved sending them a list of questions before hand to read through, and fixing up a mutually convenient date and time for the interview to take place. Interviews were probably one of the best things about working with ParentEdge.

Writing the actual articles in themselves involved a lot of research on the topic. For example, my article on spatial intelligence required quite a bit of reading up on multiple intelligences, an area that I was completely unfamiliar with. After reading pieces on the background of the subject though, I was able to put the articles together with some degree of cohesion. The fact that these were concrete pieces that were going to appear in a publication of repute definitely motivated me to work harder and write with more gravity than I normally would!

ParentEdge has provided a wonderful platform for me to do what I love – write. It has taught me important skills such as how to structure an article, how to write questions for an interview, how to conduct an actual interview, how to stick to deadlines. I had an absolutely amazing and informative time working here, and I highly recommend all the budding authors and a writer out there to intern with ParentEdge, because it truly gives you an authentic experience of working with a magazine, as well as teaching you the skills you need to do so.

ParentEdge is a bi-monthly magazine for discerning Indian parents who would like to actively contribute to their children’s education, intellectual enrichment and stimulation. The magazine’s premise is that learning is a continuous process, and needs to happen both in and outside of school; thus parents have an important role to play in shaping their children’s interests and intellect.
