The hot, hot days of summer are here. And afternoons are meant for relaxing with a book and a bowl of healthy treats in a cozy corner. By daughter is sacrosanct about her reading time, and is very clear that she is not disturbed! If only I had that clarity when I was a little girl.

But summer is also a time you need to be careful and steer away from challenges and competitions for kids. While it is a good idea to keep them motivated and inspired to read more which does them a world of good, we also need to ensure they do so willingly and not by coercion or threat. ‘Coz that won’t work. At all.

The more you nag the kids or ask them to chase a cut-off number, the more they are going to repel from it. While you can try inducing interest in your own innovative way by gratitifcation, appreciation, etc- make sure your child enjoys the process.

What Smart Moms of Readers Do…

What’s your book budget- for everyone in the family? Do you have a weekly or monthly allowance on how much you are willing to spend on books?

Not all have. And it’s awesome if you have a limit too. It’s just that make sure you encourage your kids to spend more on books and reading than on other stuff- simple.

And if you are looking to ways to save more while not cutting down on your reading time. Here is an awesome offer- only on Kidsstoppress!

The One New Thing To Try This Week…

I am someone who loves the comvenience of online shopping. Be it groceries or kids’ clothes or even books, I love how easier it is than to step out during inconvenient times. And the last 2 years just made it mandatory, that I eventually got sick of it. Anyone else feel the same?

Now that things are returning to normal, in addition to planning a trip to parks, malls and restaurants with the kids, make sure you carve out some time in a month to visit your neearby bookstore.

However small or big they are, bookstores are the lifelines of the books industry and at a time when many bookstores and libraries are fast shutting down, showing our support to them, is the smart thing to do- as readers and parents of readers.

Heading out to a bookstore must be a joyous occassion for the kids- something they look forward to. For instance, the Crossword Bookstore at Kemps’ Corner, Mumbai reopened reecently and my colleagues at Mumbai haven’t stopped gushing over it yet. From a complete makeover to special reading nooks for kids to drown themselves in the books, it is indeed a book lovers’ haven.

And in case you feel you are lost in a bookstore with the multitude of options and titles and your kids wanting to buy simply every title they lay eyes on, relax. You have already taken the right first step.

Just earmark our rcommendations week after week on this newsletter (you can also access them from the Profile page in the website for a re-read later) and voila! You have saved easily upto an hour every week in choosing the right books for your kids!

Word Of The Week


Anything that is puzzling

Usage: He tried too hard to understand the political conundrum, in vain.

Conversation Starter Of The Week

My daughter has grown up seeing me reading the papers and discussing with my husband the current affairs. We have also always been conscious of what we discuss in front of her because it isn’t age-appropriate. So how then, do we get our kids to understand all that happens around them? We tell you.

On we share news and other fun facts for kids on I Am Not Bored – India’s top podcast for kids. Here you can get your children to listen to snackable news content like why Russia went to war with Ukraine, to even fun knock knock jokes that are a great ice-breaker in schools.

In today’s episode, we talk about the economic crisis happening in Srilanka and why that is concerning. The idea brewed when my family and I were talking about it, and I thought it was an important discussion to have with my daughter to tell her how people are struggling and standing in long queues just to get milk. We always talk about how to parent in the 21st century, and how we get our children to have gratitude and stay humbled.
