The rapidly changing dynamics of our culture and lifestyle are indeed challenging. The parents are finding themselves standing on a shaky ground, wherein they feel confused many a times about how much freedom to give and when?, How to control the amount of time spent on gadgets by kids?, How can they make sure that their child doesn't get bullied and doesn't become aggressive at the same time?, How to develop healthy eating habits not as a compromise but as a worthwhile choice? The dilemmas seem to be unending and parents certainly would benefit from expert advice in such matters. Parentune's initiative of providing service to parents through workshops and 1 X 1 interaction with experts is a great opportunity to bridge the gaps and smoothen out the parenting journey. Three CHEERS for Parentune !!! :)
