Summer Fun…the Old-Fashioned Way!

After all, the best memories from my childhood are from the endless hours I have spent playing with my friends, without being rushed to go home, the mischief we did together, the pranks we played on each other, tirelessly reading about Enid Blyton’s enchanted forests and wishing chairs, and the time I have spent with my parents on holidays, when they were with me without an agenda. I hope to enjoy the holidays like I did as a child, create some beautiful memories with my children this summer…the old-fashioned way!

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.

    I enjoyed reading your blog. An evocative description of your childhood summers that took me back to mine! Yes, quite sad how we load our kids’ lives to keep them busy and engaged and forget about down time to do nothing. This is perhaps why we have children who get ‘bored’ so easily and cannot sit for more than five minutes if they have nothing to occupy them!

      Thank you Kritika! I also see a lot of parents enrolling kids into whatever activities possible to keep them out of their hair and get some peace themselves.

    Rightly so Aditi. It was in these fun filled holidays that everlasting bonds were made- with siblings , cousins or friends. This was children also learn to keep themselves occupied on their own. Many grown ups ,I find, have this need to BE with someone all the time – they cannot do anything alone. Perhaps they were never left to their own means as children.
