Articles:Working from Home
Name: Editor The arrival of a new baby changes the complexion of a woman's life. It
becomes increasingly difficult for her, more so if she is working, to get
back to her original schedule. She tries desperately to snatch time for
herself amidst night feeds and nappy changes. In such trying times, many women zero in on working from home. However, this alternative needs a certain mental grooming and preparation.


1. Never regret your decision: Being a 'homemaker' is the last thing to feel unhappy about. Therefore, if you face any obstructions, it is just a short-term phase with long-term gains.
2. Invest in the right direction: Before starting on any venture, regularise a pattern for yourself, your child, husband and family. If you are a graphic designer, a writer, or a programmer, invest in a computer. Hire help, for professional and personal work. You might have to sub-let some work initially. If possible, you might have to redesign your house and allot some office space to yourself.
3. Believe in yourself: Working from home demands a definite regimen. It means saying no afternoon naps and frequent evening outings. It also means timely supervision in the kitchen. Tell yourself you can do it, and prepare yourself before taking the plunge.

hi there,
I was married at the age of 22 and after a year had my baby and then went back to india and had to stay for long until i finally joined my husband with my baby. As as stated i never had a career so far and now that my child is 3 yrs old, i have plans of thinking of a career so that i can have some self esteem and get some additional income for the family. I am just a commerce graduate with a diploma in computers with high speed typing skills. Do u have any ideas of home business that will suit me without any initial investment. I have no ideas of how the home business works. Can't i do some simple jobs just by sitting at the computer without a seperate office room etc etc. please advice me.

Great article
I really loved this article. I loved the points and tips. It was very helpful. Parents should try and talk with their children and not at them. I have noticed that many children are afraid of their parents. Parents should not give very strict and harsh punishments for children. I will definitely follow these tips. Thanks a lot.

Parents pressure on children

Some parents put too much pressure on children which is not right. They compare their children with other’s children and cousins which is not right. The relationship between parents and children should be such that children should feel free to discuss even personal problems with parents.

Play Games with your child
Play games with your child and teach them as you play. As you play with your children, teach them the important lessons while playing. During the course of playing, pass on to them those important morals and lessons you want them to learn. Your children will assume that you are only playing with them. My parenting tip.
