Mother's Day Special - Geeta Hansaria - Always keep communication channels open with your child.


A Mother is the heartbeat in the home; and without her, there seems to be no heart throb. This quote truly symbolises the compassion and unconditional love a mother has for her child. While most Indian career women have a tough time balancing their personal and professional life, we have Geeta Hansaria donning multiple hats and shinning bright in every avenue she has forayed into.

Her kid and home are at top priority and she swish-buckles all tasks with superior efficiency.  A Homeopathic practitioner, Social Media (Blue-tick Instagram verified) Influencer, Content Writer, Recipe Curator and mom blogger, Geeta shares some successful parenting tips to be the guiding force for your child. 

Is there a generation gap between youngsters with their parents?
Yes, there used to be but nowadays I think it’s lessened as parents speak on one on one basis with their kids. Likewise, kids also speak openly to their parents like friends. Today’s parents should treat their kids as friends and develop the trust element in them from a young age.

There are some things my daughter tells me that I wouldn’t imagine talking to my parents while growing up. We were in awe of our parents and little scared too during our times. Nowadays kids are sorted, speak their mind and are not scared of voicing their feelings if you have developed that trust in them. I strongly feel that parents should bridge this gap by taking the first step.

As a mom, what is the right way to bring up your child?
I feel parenting varies from person to person. My way of parenting is more like a friend to my 10 year old daughter. I have kept communication channels open and don’t judge her. This makes it easier for her to come and tell me everything.

I tell my husband that I would prefer that she will come and tell me some mistake she did rather than me hearing about it from an external source. This very trust is hard to build but once you handle them with kid gloves, the child will open up and confide everything to the mom/dad.

Any other memories or points besides this which you would like to add.
Moms are the best thing to happen to a child. I think we make the mistake of not listening to them while growing up and the only regret I have is that I should have listened to my mom's advice more.
