Nice article,small small things happening daily but get a chance to recollect after reading your article. My 4. 5 year old daughter always mention to her dad when sometime he raises a pitch while doing conversatiom "dont shout papa.... talk aram se". I find a change in my husband... actually he mind now his pitch before he starts. there are number of things which our kids are precieving from us whether its from teacher,neighbours,in laws and friends.

Nice article Neetu... I am becoming a fan of yours... I too have learned a lot from my kids... I let them be what they are without mending them too much... My son, 8 years old, is an introvert and doesn't share his emotions easily.. But since I started spending time with him, he is opening up... Growing up fast... Daughter is his opposite, makes friends easily and tells everything.. Both of them are beautiful in their own ways and make me complete. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Every one has one question to ask kids without fail. That is - What will you be when you grow up? A nurse who visited my mother twice a week asked my daughter, then 9 yrs, the same question. In total calm she replied... Haven't thought of it yet. The nurse pounced back with a few more of them. My daughter simply said.... Why is it necessary to become something after growing up. Can't we just be. And hence taught a lesson that before even thinking of making our children good, responsible & independent human beings, we fix professions on them.

I am raising my daughter almost alone, as wife is behind her career. I several times learn from her about my mistakes and reactions to her. She is 6 years old, but use some words which are really thoughtful. Like sometime I was angry on her for her mess in house, she used to say "take help from others or dont do too much work". This is really surprising for me. She is reflector of my behaviour and my best teacher !

Beautiful Neetu! What I liked the most about the blog are the real experiences you have mentioned. We do forget little things and think that all our actions are correct; we never easily admit our mistakes. Sometimes we do need that nudge and we get it from our children- even things done everyday can be made fun. We are reminded of unconditional love, talking silly, laughing out loud and also respecting others, whether people or animals. Very nice blog.. Loved it :)

So many times we are so wrapped up in our daily lives that we fail to notice such little things that turn out to be big lessons for us..... thanks for reminding us to look up to our children to re-learn the forgotten virtues like patience, forgiveness, honesty love and simplicity

Shilpa.. this beauty is just never ending. Yesterday my child told me he does not like when I bargain with rickshaw pullers and auto drivers. He said,"You always tell them its not that far but I always see that it IS that far. " We had a small yet meaningful conversation on the rickshaw ride and I promised him that I will be more mindful next time onwards. I admitted that we cannot measure their physical labor in terms of money. Thank you for taking the time to read and share your thoughts.. Love to your baby.

Wow... Neetu this is just amazing!! My kid aged 3 now has really taught me the meaning of life!! He is the energy of my life and i just don't know how you could manage so beautifully to give words to my emotions. excellant write up... sometimes we happen to ignore life's most beautiful things... just spending time with our kids, just a hug or two, a peck here and there and above all listening too your child... can make us better humans!!

My daughter is not a spendthrift. She always chooses for hours before she buys anything. Until extremely useful and needed she never spends a penny. But once she took our camera to school for a project and unfortunately it was stolen by someone within minutes. The teachers called us and when we went to school I could n't control my tears as it was our lucky one. But my daughter kept herself composed and said 'mama please don't cry in front of others. It is embarrassing. U have told me many times not to crib over spilt milk'. I found a spark that day as how weak I had been in handling tough situations. One day when I fought with all my might with my husband, my son came with tears and told me, 'the fault is yours mama, u need to be patient'. It was striking on my face that day and I felt ashamed for behaving so. Lucky to learn life lessons from kids!

Excellent write-up Dear Neetu! After reading this article I was lost in my thoughts for a long time and found how many times my kids have taught me good things.
