Struggling to find the perfect gift for your child this Christmas? This guide will simplify the process and have you set in no time!
How are families different…
Structure - Some families are multi-generational, while others just have a parent and child. Some might have all adults leaving home for work every day; others may have stay at home or work from home adults.
Style – Tough love, consensus, free-range or any other kind of parenting – we all have our own ways of dealing with parenting issues though we all want our kids to be happy, healthy adults.
What do family meals mean to the family?
They help build relationships. When you eat together you see one another over a comforting plate of food and bond with one another day after day. You talk, laugh or even argue, get to know one another and observe how the other behaves, building a relationship as you go.
Inculcate better manners and politeness. When you eat together, you learn how to behave at the table. You listen politely, eat properly, answer questions and learn by observation.
What do festive celebrations do for us?
Festivals have a way of bringing us closer. When we celebrate something together, it automatically brings us closer and makes for a stronger bond. No matter how far away you are from your sibling physically, the arrival of ‘Rakhee ‘ ‘Rakshabandhan’ is bound to make you miss your sibling, feel nostalgic about the good times you have had together.
They create a sense of community. Those who celebrate together stay together. We all need a sense of belonging and community. Whatever the festival, from Eid to Christmas to Janmashtami, when we come together and enjoy the festival together, it builds a community. We exchange customs, adopt those from other communities and make them our own, thus creating and being a part of something special
As we celebrate the EveryWomen on the International Women’s day, we take a peek at what a few of them do every day to be themselves and how they shape generations.
Sharing your story is not easy in these times of glossy, sanitized versions of lives everywhere we can see. Life is not about the highlight reel but about what happens behind the scenes. We at shumee wish every woman balance for better every day! Every day is Women's day at shumee!
