“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” – Pablo Picasso

Trying to seem cool, wanting to be liked, fear of criticism – these are some of the reasons why children give into peer pressure.

Adults have come quite a distance in life to have some understanding and clarity about their needs, desires, and capabilities and hence are better equipped to handle peer pressure without giving in or buckling up. But the condition and mentality of children is way different especially those of adolescents. Teens and preteens start developing certain notions and have an utmost longing to be appreciated and liked. Coupled with their raging hormones, their emotions can play truant if not channelized in the right direction.

In this time-starved world driven by technology, life is much more complicated than it was in
previous generations. Technology has shrunk the world and the flip side of this is that people need to be

work and work-related communication. Bringing work home is no more a concern, as it’s on our necks
24/7. How much can we shake it off to bring that element of happiness and bonding in our family life
and how much importance do we give for family time and shaping our children’s future is what
determines our parenting model.

bring up excellent humans, who will identify their gifts through our love and guidance to make their
world a better place.
