Neel's first publication

                                       Published in the Assam Tribune dated (16.12.2021)

The experience of publishing in mass media is one of a lifetime. If it is for the first time and even at a tender age, it gives immense pleasure. As a parent, we are putting our effort into a good environment for our budding children. 

We are not helicoptering parents but we always monitor each and every activity of our child. We would not impose matters on him but guide him to do what is right or wrong. 

But as an intelligent child, he evolved as much faster than us. Accordingly, we are also trying to develop ourselves in relation to certain environments.  

Reading different aspects of books is our normal routine. We prefer to read general books and kindle on our Ipads. We read newspapers and keep sharing and discussing major current affairs.

 As such, our son also developed reading habits newspapers and eagerly waits for weekly supplements. He reads it regularly and we always discuss what he learned from the newspaper. 

He loves to share with us. There is an editorial and letter to the editor sections. Neel always loves to read these simple and inspiring sections.

We, therefore, encourage him to write one letter to the editor about the theme of  Why he should read a newspaper. Neel's mother tuned his sentences and finally sent them to the editor with a photograph. 

Finally, it got published today and when he saw his name and his writing in print, the child was speechless for a moment.

He was so happy that he grabbed his mother and spent a few moments hugging her before giving us the brightest smile.

And lastly, he said, "Daddy! I have become a writer just like you."

Do I need words to describe how I felt?

Daddy's time for his son during Pandemic

I am a father of 7 years son and trying to provide quality time in the midst of a busy work schedule. Professionally, I am a wildlife biologist as such I spend many days from my house inside the forest with no connectivity. But as I return home I am turned into a family man and a father. How can we (my son and me) spend time: Early morning : I am an early riser and always left my bed between 4:30–0500am. This is my me time. From 5:00 -7:00, I do my all work- walking for half an hour, meditation and daily journal, and reading. 7:30 I wake up my son with a kiss on his forehead. I open windows and softly request him to wake up. Every night we sleep at the same time and I give him suggestions to wake up as I request so there is no hindrance. He usually takes 10 minutes to freshen up. then I give him the first glass of water and two biscuits to start the day. Thereafter we read his books (either textbook or reference) and request him to read loudly. I correct his pronunciation and maintain

How to Encourage Your Child to Wake Up Early in the Morning

I always encourage my son to wake up early. I have early wake-up habit since my childhood.  During my childhood, I used to study, go to our paddy fields, or fishing in the early morning. Today, it is not possible for my child to indulge in the same activities as my childhood. Still, I am glad that my child wakes up early. I always make sure to get morning freshness and it boosts up my energy for a whole day.  I encouraged my child to wake early to maintain the same good habits from his childhood. He is always prepared to wake up early the night before.  I set some morning plans for him like a workout for 30 minutes, reading, and working in a small garden for a few minutes. Sometimes we counted birds around our backyard.  A gorgeous sunrise can sometimes be seen from an open space, and we are able to feel the greatness of the universe. As apparent I am doing it continuously. Sometimes I set free him to do as he like and he enjoys his own work schedule. This also helps us to avoid a mo
