@Komal Kriti Sharma It is good idea to start a business in or around Koramangala. It is a super busy place with some great office spaces available on rent. Also there are some good schools like Orchid International. National Public School and Bethany among many others. Also there are some nice recreational parks and Cubon Park is at 8 kms from Koramangala and the Lakshmi Devi Park is also a wonderful place for children, in Koramangala.
@K V Veena I am living in Bangalore for the past 37 years, and believe me, it has changed. But, people are still very helpful, just that as you are saying that we have become too busy. And, our children will definitely not see the beauty of the city the way we had seen it as kids.

Dear parent, Behavioural issues in kids between 2-5 years are very trying for every parent. But they are common and temporary when handled appropriately. You can do the following to manage behavioural issues in your child: Control your own emotions. Before you respond to your childs behaviour, its important to pause and get in control of your own emotions. Screaming, yelling, or worse hitting your child will only make the situation worse. Empathise with your child. Even if your child is whining or wailing for something that seems illogical or irrelevant to you, its important that you empathise with your childs feelings by asking yourself how is my child feeling right now? Then in a calm voice, tell your child you understand what she is feeling. Have firm rules in your family. Rules regarding behaviour should be laid down firmly, with the involvement of the child. Its important for the child to understand that these rules are non-negotiable and everybody in the family has to play by these rules. Also, involve your child in deciding on the consequences if any of the rules are broken by any family member. Teach your child ways to manage his feelings. We often tell our children what not to do - dont hit, dont run, dont jump, dont push but we rarely tell them what to do, say, when theyre angry or frustrated or upset. Teaching your child ways to manage his big emotions by brainstorming, demonstrating, and role-modelling will help your child express his emotions appropriately. Watch out for signs of hunger or fatigue. Most of all, dont judge or label your child when he gets cranky. Its possible that he is simply hungry or tired or sleepy. So, rule any of these reasons out before you jump into applying other strategies.

@Anonymous Dear teacher, I applaud your concern for your student! Being slow could be due to a number of reasons: does the child have a specific learning disability (SLD), or is the child demotivated (again, could be due to a number of reasons), or does he have an unsupportive or a disturbed family environment? You could, on a priority basis, get an SLD assessment done for the child from NIMHANS or any other Special Educator trained in doing such assessments. Let us know if you would like us to suggest any names to you. The assessment report is likely to indicate a possible direction for intervention. If the assessment report does not indicate SLD, we could take up exploration of other underlying reasons. Kindly stay in touch with us through the ParentCircle platform. All the best!
@Anonymous Dear teacher, it’s very understandable that you are concerned about your students’ behavioural problems. If the behavioural problems are occurring within the school context and impacting not just the target student but his peers as well, you have every right to involve the parents of the target child. In fact, as you know, a healthy partnership between the teachers, parents, and students is the foundation of a good education. When you involve the parents, however, do keep the following in mind: Be prepared for the parents to be in denial or be defensive about their child’s issues. So, avoid blaming or accusing anyone, including the child, and open the meeting with sharing your concern and its consequences for other students. Describe the problem clearly, encourage input from both the parents and the child, brainstorm all possible ideas to tackle the situation, choose a solution by consensus, and develop a plan. Always focus on the solutions; avoid criticizing the child or her parents. Encourage the student to talk about her perspective in front of her parents. With these steps, you will definitely be able to help your student and hopefully, nip the behavioural problem in its bud. All the best!
