Why You Should Give Your Children The Gift Of Boredom

Time moved slowly when I was a child. The days seemed endless. It's a contrast to my children's childhood, where all their activities seem scheduled weeks in advance. They'd widen their eyes if I told them how much time I spent doing nothing. They'd look at me as I look at those older than me who boast about walking barefoot to school. The way you do when you catch an uncomfortable glimpse into a time before civilization.

The Best Getaway Of Them All...

Summers for me meant endless days at my grandfather's house, which was the enchanted land of do-what-you-want. We would arrive at his gates the moment our vacations began and leave, kicking and screaming, when July sprung upon us, all-too-soon and without warning. Our mother, to our unimaginable delight, was not only barred entry, but was also made to renounce all parental control.

Why I'm Not Sending My Kids To Classes Or Camps This Winter Vacation

I dread vacations, I really do. And, I think, almost every mother does. I order books, I buy crayons and colour pencils and paints. I pull out all the birthday gifts that I have successfully stowed away for months. And yet, when the vacations begin, I find myself terribly ill-equipped to handle the girls. Perhaps that is why, no sooner than the holidays start, most mothers, like me, want to pack the children off to some camp or the other.
