Parents’ Day 2014
Created by Parentune Support Updated on Jul 23, 2014
Every year I would hear about events like Fathers’ Day and Mothers’ Day catching pace in India, trying to stand at par with the international observations of these days. Last year, however, something unique caught my attention; it was Parents’ Day. Intrigues, I found out more about this event and landed on parentune.com: an online proparent community that aims to empower parents by working toward a positive shift in child development. On exploring a little further, I discovered that the 2-day carnival was a celebration of the warm and endearing bond parents and children share with one another--it was a mix of activities that made parenting more meaningful yet simpler. For someone to dedicate two days just to understand the essence of this bond seemed too special for me to resist attending it. And the experience was only better than what I had expected. Parents’ Day 2013 had an unprecedented participation from more than 3,000 parents-- attending workshops, learning from each other’s experiences, interacting with experts and discussing some key aspects to child development in the rapidly changing and evolving surroundings.
The good news is that parentune.com is now celebrating Parents Day again this year on 26-27th July at Select Citywalk, Saket, Delhi.
For any discerning parent, this is going to be a chance to experience first-hand the on-ground manifestation of the mission of parentune.com--parents helping fellow parents, receiving in time expert advice to achieve more for their child. This will be done through a gamut of activities and sessions on parenting and its challenges. The two-day exposition will include workshops that will shed light on Education and Learning, Nutrition and Food, Pregnancy and Infant Care as well as Behaviors and Attitudes, with prestigious experts, some of whom are listed below:
Steven Rudolph: An American educator whose path-breaking multiple natures theory helps you to understand and unleash the potential in your child’s personality.
Ishi Khosla: A renowned nutritionist, who through her experience of more than two decades in child nutrition, will aid you in tackling the challenges of feeding your children, something urban parents struggle with frequently.

Through interaction with these experts, a parent will get a chance to absorb their insights and make parenting their parenting more substantial. And there is something for the little ones too!
Parentune will also take care of your children. Along with workshops, parentune.com will be hosting activities for children as well. Children of all age groups will have the opportunity to indulge in a mix of skill-building and developmental activities such as musical storytime, clay modelling, art & craft and free play. These activities will be supervised by trained professionals and balance play with constructive development. This year the event is being powered by Pigeon--a world renowned brand in the area of infant and child care. Pigeon is also supporting the pregnancy and infant care workshop, perhaps a must attend for each expecting parent or a parent of an infant or a toddler. Similarly, the nutrition workshop is being partenered with Philips Air Fryer. This new age appliance not only makes life easier for a busy mom but at the same time does not compromise on the healthy living either.
Parents’ Day, in it's second edition, shall empower a sustainable impact on parenting as well as fostering child’s development. As urban parents, it’s indeed hard to find sufficient time for a child, but events like these can really make a difference in how we nurture our child because after all, “At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.”
