Let me first take this opportunity to commed you'll for such a useful topic. The children nowadays are not strong mentally enough to face challenges head on. I want to understand what could be the reason for the same? Has it got something to do with the parenting, or the environment or the technology and role of media? What can we parents do now so that our children are strong mentally to face any situation in life and not start crying or looking for support when facing tougher circumstances. Thanks in advance!!

Namaskar Madam! My children are 11 and 9 years old respectively. They are not concerned about what they want to be 10 years down the line. They are more focused on fighting with each other, watching Movies, ipad, playing games and arguing with each other. Whenever I bring up this discussion they say there is lot of time in that. How do I make them future oriented from now on so that they are perpaed for it and are aware in which direction to move ahead?

Hello Ma'am ! I watch all your sessions and these are very useful to me. My 8 year old daughter does not have a high opinion about herself. She gives up sometimes even before beginning a task. She keeps saying , ' I can't do that, I am smart not like others'. Earlier I used to be very critical of her and gave her a frank opinion about her performance, probably that's why she is so underconfident. But now I think a lot before, telling her and use my words judiciously so that she doens't feel demotivated? Please advise what else can I do to make her feel confident?
