Welcome to Mommy Labs, and thank you for stopping by this page to know who’s breathing and living behind this blog 🙂
My name is Rashami, and the little girl you see on every page of this blog is my 6.5-year-old daughter.
I do homeschool my daughter without following any curriculum, textbooks or instruction. I believe that given a creative, lively, loving environment, learning will flourish most naturally. And in the company of adults who nurture the children’s natural sense of wonder, participate in their conversations, and support their interests and strengths, creativity and free thinking will bloom.
Above all, in a home where the mother or the parent is doing interesting things out of her own curiosity and interest – her enthusiasm will rub off on the kids. They will participate without being asked to. I’ve seen this firsthand. You can read more about our homeschooling journey over here and many other more which a mother and daughter can do at home without consulting experts and utilize their time in learning for free .
So, what you will read on this blog are ideas, activities and thoughts that stem from this passion of mine – to make learning what it should be – inspired by life, by nature, by art, by one’s own curiosity and by living in respect and freedom.
If you’re new here, you can begin by exploring some of these articles, in which I share an activity/idea and the thought behind it:
- Writing: How Genuine Conversations Make Writers Out of Children
- Nature and Children: How to Enjoy nature with Kids and Nurture their Sense of Wonder

I recommend that you subscribe to Mommy Labs to get articles as I publish.
You can also connect with me on Facebook and Pinterest. I share articles from around the web on these places.
Finally, I’d like to tell you that this place, as much as it is about our creative learning journey, it’s equally about YOU.
YOU are our most important friend and community on this path. Without you, this blogging journey would be lonely and dull. Your comments, feedback, Facebook ‘likes’ and ‘shares’, and tweets – keep us going; helps spread the word and the spirit for creative, child-led learning.
It’s my utmost joy to have you on board. Welcome to this creative community.
Much love and hugs!
