A Family Commitment To Change
It is a mere coincidence that both our kids were born in India. Coincidence because we were based out of Korea, not India.
So what's the BIG deal about having or raising healthy children? Why do expecting mothers and fathers go about consulting the best doctors in town - be it paediatricians or gynaecologists?
I constantly remind Rishab and Saanvi about the rules for healthy eating. Allowing them to differentiate between what's right or wrong for them in the long-term helps us to stay involved with them and play a crucial role in their overall development. We try to make it a family thingy.
Being a homemaker has given Sadhna an edge. No matter how busy my day is, Sadhna would never miss taking the kids out to the nearest park for recreation. One hour of physical activity in a day allows children to stay fit and happy. Sadhna knows how to mix it, so she encourages kids to play active games like hopscotch, tickle monster, soccer, etc. Whenever I get time, we go for walks together.
Value Your Kids Pursuit To Grow Healthy
Although Sadhna doesn't object to the kids watching TV or surfing web, she ensures that the children don't end up becoming typical couch potatoes. I have specifically asked her to pay attention to how much time Rishab and Saanvi spend in front of the screen. We have also moved the TV and computer out of their room and kept the same in our living area.
