Super Mom Bloggers - Preparing Kids to Face Social Stigmas

This season of "Chiming with Supermom Bloggers" comes to an end in this episode where our super mom blogger of the week Sanskriti Ramgad talks about "Preparing Kids to Face Social Stigma". Children often face certain discriminations while living in the society - be it related to their skin color, obesity, dominant left hand, gender-bias, or anything else – all these stigmas can leave a huge psychological impact on kids even as young as toddlers. They lose self-confidence or tend to become more conscious, turns aggressive, and abusive at times due to external criticisms. It is very important as parents to observe your children and their actions and try to understand the underlying reasons behind that behavior. The child is often giving silent shouting signs of "Help me!" but not able to put it in words.  Parents should not blame the child in these situations but try to understand what they can do to ease it out and help them fight inner daemons. Also, it is very important to not to blame your child but extend support and love towards your child. Sanskriti goes to on relate a very pertinent example of how she prepared her own daughter to handle social stigmas. She feels that parenting has changed a lot since our childhood days in our country as earlier there were limited luxuries and it was need-based which is no longer the case for millennial parents. Education has accelerated, technology is everywhere and all this makes them super confident and also competitive. But as parents, we need to draw a line somewhere and ensure kids are not going down the wrong path especially online. Sanskriti also feels that kids have been confined due to pandemic and online schools are not able to provide wholesome education like physical development, sports, etc. While social distancing is going to be a new normal till vaccine comes out but the road to complete recovery is going to be a long one. Sanskriti feels that is quite unfortunate that even schools have gone online but she personally doesn’t support and hence the screen-free entertainment platforms like Chimes Radio comes very handy especially for young kids and avoid adverse effect on their health. Too much screen time can impact kids in multiple ways like watering or drying up of eyes, headaches, sleep patterns, social skills degrade, etc. and need to be monitored. www.chimesradio.com FB: https://www.facebook.com/chimesradio/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vrchimesradio/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChimesRadio   Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/chimesradioSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
