Pari is a home-body. She loves being at home, reading, doing art, watching movies, listening to songs, cooking in the kitchen, writing blog posts, conversing with us. We understand this need of hers and try our best to balance – between the fun of going out and exploring this beautiful place where we live (Goa) and her need to cocoon at home.
Children need the TIME to BE themselves. Give them the time and they will surprise us all in more ways than we can imagine. And, when our children can just BE without being driven by the clock all the time, that will be the best TIME for this planet, for they will know how to be happy from within rather than go seek happiness in external factors.
You see, having time and being happy – there’s a lot more connection there than one can comprehend. The biggest connection is, if there’s time, there can be conversations, there can be communication, which will lead to better understanding and that results in great relationships – between the parent and the child.

Relationship – isn’t that the key? The kind of relationship you share with your child, your partner – will determine the atmosphere of your home. If the home atmosphere is amicable, fun, easy, non-judgmental, you’ll want to stay home. Home sweet home.
