Building Young Healthy Minds Today for a Better Tomorrow

  • 23 min watch

It is often said “It takes a village to raise a child “. Today’s children are tomorrow’s future; and how we choose to raise our children determines the outcome of the world’s and our future.

A happy child grows into a happy adult and any harrowing experiences in childhood can have far reaching impact in the child’s life as he or she grows into an adult. In the current world with overload of information, constant exposure to digital devices, gaming mania, busy work lives of parents, raising a child has become a multidimensional activity and has no right answers. With the pandemic bringing in changes such as limited exposure to external environment, constant monitoring by parents, many kids are facing social anxiety as they slowly move back into their new social lives post pandemic.

If you are a parent wondering :
- Is my child doing okay ? Is there a right way of parenting ?
- What can I do as a parent to promote my child’s mental wellness ?
- Increased screen time - consequences and what can I do?
- Wondering how would my child react when it steps into this large world after being in the confines of home for close to two years ?
- Why is my child refusing to go back to school and is comfortable with online schooling?

Do watch out this space as Ivana Fertitta engages in an interesting and insightful conversation with Dr. Manjiri Deshpande Shenoy, a child mental wellness expert, who shares succinct and practical tips on mental wellness for children.

As Dr. Manjiri wonderfully sums it up - “There are no perfect parents, no perfect children but there are definitely perfect moments along the way and it is important to notice them”. Join us in this journey of conscious parenting and promoting mental wellness in children for a Better tomorrow.
