Every child is different. Acknowledging this makes the parenting journey that much more fun. Vinay, a father of two little girls, each very different from the other, speaks about the relationship between them. Today he is happy to go with the flow and explore the world around through his daughters and that makes every day 'father's day'. "Parenting is way beyond expectations when you let your little ones lead you where they will", says Vinay who juggles a demanding career with being an engaged father to two tween girls.
Bringing a new life home is just the beginning. What happens when a devoted father has to let the apple of his eye explore the real world so she can discover herself and grow to find her space in it? He draws up a long list of requirements and even mulls over alternatives like home-schooling (and in wild moments - opening his own school).

How he drew from his daughter's personality and needs to find what was just the right fit for her - a school that lets her explore at her own pace, one she cannot wait to go back to!
