Challenges being a Mompreneur
Getting married at an early age has its own virtues. Did my course in fashion designing and got myself certified as a skin and color consultant in US. I always count my blessings because everything just happens for a great reason, When they were small I used to work only on weekends when my husband could be home with our two daughters. We always felt that grandparents should be able to enjoy the time with grandkids but should not be burdened with the responsibilities. Kids do spent some time alone with grandparents they also love it that way.
Didn’t want to leave kids in anybody else’s care, so me and my husband managed to homeschool them till they turned three and were ready for proper school. So we thoroughly enjoyed those years with them and the feeling of security that comes with it.
Coming back to India was the best thing that happened to me. Joined IIM-B and did the entrepreneurship course from there. It was after this “Wsol” was born.
Whenever in our household we do something for the first time we tend to prepare kids .We do have a chat with them about the things that may change in their routine , like some days I may not be there at home on time to help them with their homework or extra evening activities . I felt they feel more secure and are more adaptive if they know what is happening.
I have two daughters 11 year old and an 8yr old they do understand that their mom is working hard and going after her passion that doesn’t mean that they have become secondary. Things do get emotional sometimes especially when they need you to be physically present at some place.
We have kept Friday evenings only for kids, all of us together watch kids movie, dinner and ice creams .We don’t commit to any social gatherings on Friday, so kids eagerly look forward to Fridays.
They are also happy if I can surprise them sometimes, the surprise can be some snack they love or a small note to them in their lunch box.
Everybody in the house is assigned a household chore. We bake together; kids have to come up with recipes and have to collect the ingredients. These are some of the things we do together as a family.
