abosolutely Phenomenal

Posted on Updated on

is the response from my most regular readers on the FB n on my blog n a few frens who never comment but still read about my latest post,that m back blogging… It really made me feel nice the my blogger friends n my other friends who read my blog really look forward to my writing… M really feeling great about it…Thanks Guys..All of You made my day 🙂

Yesterday night was a time when I had to educate Yuvan one more time about what smoking is and how dangerous it is to health using many facts and a little explanation but in detail, about the germs and the smoke affecting the parts of the body..

It all started again when he saw one of our neighbours whom he is really fond off… having the cigar in his hand… n though he tried to hide it …Yuvan responded as below

Y : Uncle what’s that in your hand ? ( We were waiting for the lift in the lobby)

C : (Very embarrassed )”thats paper “

(tries to throw  it )

Y: Uncle, be careful..there’s fire in it.. u are gonna burn u’r fingers…

me n C : **** SHOCKED****

During our everyday study time yesterday I noticed Yuvan trying to hold the pencil in many different ways in his fingers on to his writing paper.. including the cigar position,which shocked me… whether or not he did it intentionally…

Thats when my lessons on smoking came back again…

I saw a SCARE in his eyes after I list down how smoking affects one’ s health ,body,and how it works on the negative side.. he was almost into tears… n jus nodded…. I can sense his fear.. and I don’t want only his fear..he must truly realise  and acknowledge the ill-effects of smoking..,which I believe will happen over a few more  anti-smoking lessons…

Job done…. Follow up will be reviewed….

This is part and parcel of bringing up a Boy.. and I Believe in the style of parenting that he must know everything when he has the inquisitive to know and he should be able to learn the good and bad from everything… And I believe in saying the facts and no beating around the bush!


M more happy that Yuvan’s blog is also getting the due attention from my blogger frens 🙂 thanks guys.. u are My Inspiration!!!

@Angel : Guess what ? U are the one to write the first comment in Yuvan’s blog too.. the ritual continues… thanks n Hugs dear 🙂

    Hi Suhanaya,
    Happy to see u blogging after a long time. Nowadays kids are very shrewd and I really liked the way u educated Yuvan about the danger of smoking. My son often ask some strange questions , I usually give him a one line answer but now after reading your blog I understand my mistake, will try to explain him better here after. Thanks. Keep up the good work.
