    Tantrum: an uncontrolled outburst of anger or frustration in a young child or like in a young child.  Children of any age can throw a tantrum. A tantrum leaves most parents agitated and lost on how to reconnect with their child. The situation can become even worse if it takes place in a social setting, causing embarrassment to join the mix of emotions for both the parent and the child.Tantrums stem from built-up emotions coming out over a seemingly small issue. You may find your child with a closet overflowing with clothes in tears because they “have nothing to wear.” You may find your toddler crying that they’ve lost their Lego figurine, complaining about how they lose everything they love, and you as a parent never help to find it.

    Choosing a Career in Unpredictable Times

    There was a time, not so long ago, when there would be only a handful of premium careers to choose from if one was serious about doing “well” in life.

  • Parenting Mistakes We Make

    Parenting Mistakes We Make

    Remember when they were tiny tots and were struggling to wear their clothes or tie their shoelaces? When we parents are not in a rush, it is a delight to watch them master a thing that is so simple for us that we don’t even give a conscious thought. The same adorable act becomes a bit of an irritant when we are in a rush to get things done by a certain time so that it can fit into our schedule. From getting ready for school in the morning to writing a statement of purpose for college applications, when we run out of patience and time, we get frustrated and end up doing it for them. We tell ourselves we are helping them, but we are doing much more than that. When we do things for them unintentionally, we are sending silent signals to them.

Irrespectively, at the end of a 17-hour day, there would be a nagging question on my mind – am I doing enough?

    Coping with Children's Anxiety about the Coronavirus Outbreak

    As you can see, our current situation has all the factors that make a person stressful. Most of the parents I have talked to are stressed out themselves.
