Early to bed early to rise

As it is always said 'EARLY TO BED EARLY TO RISE MAKES A PERSON HEALTHY WEALTHY AND WISE' It is very important for a child to go to bed early so that he/she doesn't face any problem in getting early for school.
Here are some ways by which you can help your child sleep at proper time at night. 
#kids #jugnukids #kidsparenting

-Having a consistent bedtime routine can be useful in giving the child cues that sleep time is coming. There are likely things that you do each night before bed, such as putting on pajamas, brushing teeth, reading bedtime story, nursing or rocking, and so on. Try to do those things in the same order to help your child understand what is coming next and learn to calm down through that process.

-Children need time to calm down and prepare for sleep. Create a calming environment during the bedtime routine. For example, turn off any bright lights you can switch on dim light. Television and loud noises should be turned off at least an hour before bedtime. You can build a massage time in the bed time routine.

-Lots of Fresh Air and Exercise is the single most important factor in determining how well your child will sleep at night. Let your kids go out and play as much as as they can. You can also increase the number of hours your children play outside, for example if your child is playing for two hours outside let them play for 3-4 hours. Take your child out to gardens, play with them, let them play on swings, go on several short trips, find places where they can do exercises. Our kids need that exercise and fresh air anyways, it is a good thing. It will help them in sleeping and also good for their health and keep your child strong.

-Diet play another role in your child's sleeping routine. But if you want to have a good sleeping pattern for your child then you must say no to food items like foods high in sugar, artificial colouring, preservatives, foods high in protein etc. Now Its time to replace these food items with those who promote good sleep like fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

-Reading bedtime stories to your kids is another way to make them sleep. Reading always helps in sleeping better. A story before bed makes for a peaceful transition from waking to sleep.

-The color that is painted on the walls will influence mood, thoughts and emotions. For the most soothing sleeping environment, choose a color that evokes calmness and relaxation in your child’s bedroom. The color plays an important role in your child's room. The colors like red, yellow, orange are very vibrant, they shows power and feeling of excitement. These colors indicate strength, power, excitement, joy. The bedroom should have the calm and cool colors like blue, brown, green white.. These colors are soothing and calm and helps us sleep faster. They lower the body temperature, relaxes our mind and body.

For Parents kids will always remain kids no matter how older they get. Every parent love to do their kid's work and feed them even if they are capable of doing it on their own. It may create problem for them and that is unwillingness to do any work. It will make lazy.

Invite children to help you in the work and let them learn that it is a teamwork and it has to be done together. It ill help you spend time with them and lesson for them to do household chores and search for the things.


Demonstrate and explain them how to complete small tasks. Show them the place where the things belong to.

Road Safety is another important thing to teach your kids. The rules and regulations of the road and traffic should be taught to kids at the young age only. So that when they grow older they will follow all the rules and it will become their habit to follow the traffic rules. It is important for the children to know about the road safety rules and regulations.

-Know Your Signals

Help your kid learn about the traffic lights and signs, and what each color indicates.
Green means ‘go’: Only when the signal turns ‘green’, vehicles move ahead.
Red means to ‘stop’: When the signal turns red, all the vehicles have to stop.
Yellow means to slow down: When the signal turns yellow, vehicles should slow down and prepare to stop.
The ‘Walk’ or a walking man symbol at intersections are for pedestrians. Cross the road only if these signs turn green. But look to the left and right to ensure no vehicles are approaching.
Never cross the road if the sign says ‘Don’t Walk’ or if the walking man symbol turns red.
Sometimes a hand symbol is used instead of the walking man or ‘Walk’ signals. Tell your kid about that too. If there are other symbols for pedestrians, you should make it a point to let them know. Gradually, teach your children about the other essential traffic signals they should know.

-Stop, Look, And Cross

Your child may have to walk to school or the bus stop and back. They may only have to cross the street after the school bus drops them off. Even if they don’t, they may have to cross the street to get to a friend’s house or a neighbor’s. Whatever the case is, you should teach your kids to cross the road safely. Always look for signals and use the pedestrian crossing to cross the road. 
In the absence of such markings. 
Here is what you should do:
-Look to your right and then to the left to see if there are any approaching vehicles.
-If yes, wait for the vehicle to pass and then cross the road.
-Never cross at bends.
-Never cross between stationary vehicles.
-Adults should always accompany children aged less than six and hold their hand when crossing the street.

-Pay Attention 

Teach your kids that they may not always be able to see an oncoming vehicle, especially if they are standing near a bend. Therefore, they should listen to know if a vehicle is approaching. Cars and other vehicles on the road often use the “horn” at bends and at unmanned intersections to indicate that they are nearing. Tell your children that If they hear a horn, stop and look to the left and right to see if any vehicle is approaching. Listen for engine sounds nearby to know if there is a moving vehicle – explain how a loud noise indicates the vehicle is nearby, and a faint sound means it is away.

-Don’t Run On Roads

Children may not always have patience and may tend to run across the street to get to the other side. They may also run along the road in your neighborhood while playing. Tell your kids never to run across or along the road. Children can get distracted easily and leave their guardian’s hand to run or sprint away. Teach your kids to stay calm on the road and never to run or sprint.

-Always Use Sidewalks

Teach your kids to use the sidewalk when walking on the road. Set an example for them by using the walking paths yourself. Whether it is a busy street or not, encourage your kid to use the sidewalk to stay safe on the road.

-Crossroads and Pedestrian Crossing

Kids have a tendency just to sprint across the street, anywhere they like. That can be dangerous as passing vehicles do not slow down unless there is a signal or a crossroad. Tell your kids to cross only at an intersection and use the pedestrian crossing. If they are in a small neighborhood where there is no crossroad or marked crossing, they should follow the rules mentioned above. Lessons on pedestrian safety for kids are important and should be included in school curriculum as well.

-Never Stick Hands Outside The Vehicle

Kids tend to put their hands out of the school bus even when it is moving. Some of them may even put their head out to look back and wave. This is common with students taking the school bus. It may seem like a fun idea but sticking hands or head out of a moving vehicle can be highly dangerous. If children are not careful, they could be hit by vehicles approaching from the opposite direction.

-Never Cross Road At Bends

Bends are the blind spots for motorists. When you cross at a bend, you do not give the vehicle drivers enough time to spot you and stop the car. Tell your kid never to cross at a bend as that can increase the chances of them getting hurt.

-Staying Safe On A Bicycle

If you have an older kid who rides his bike to school or around the neighborhood, make sure he is aware of and follows the following cycling rules to stay safe on the road:
-Always wear a helmet when riding a bike.
-Check if the bicycle is in working condition before using it – check for breaks and light, if using at night.
-Always use the bicycle lane. In its absence, ride the bike on extreme right or left side (whichever is right in your country) of the road and move along with traffic. Keep your eyes and ears open to make way for larger and faster vehicles behind you.
-Always use a light in areas with poor visibility and at night, to be easily noticed by motorists.
-Do not allow kids to ride a cycle on busy streets without parental supervision.

-Staying Safe Inside A Moving Vehicle

In a moving car, you can make sure that your kid is safe with the help of a car seat or seat belts. To see that they are safe in a moving vehicle without you, make sure they learn and follow these simple rules:
-Never stand inside a moving vehicle, especially a school bus or van.
-Students should not move around inside a moving school bus.
-Stay seated and hold on to the hard rail inside the bus for support, until the vehicle comes to a stop.
-Do not put any part of the body outside the window of a moving vehicle.

-Always Get Out At The Curb Side

If your kid takes the school bus every day, help them remember these safety tips:
-Start early and be on time to avoid running for the bus.
-Always stand in the queue when boarding and alighting the bus.
-Always get off the curb side when getting off a car or the bus to prevent being an obstruction to the other vehicles on the road.

-Be Seen, Stay Safe

Dressing in black may be a bad idea when you want to walk at night. It is important that vehicle drivers notice you if you want to stay safe. To be seen:
-Wear light colored clothes or reflective material when walking or biking at night.
-Wear bright clothes during the day.
-Wave your hand if you want to indicate your presence to an incoming vehicle.

-Don’t Rush

Children can get excited and rush in an attempt to get to a place or meet someone. That can be dangerous. 
Teach your kids to:
-Not rush when getting into or off a vehicle as it can be hazardous.
-Not get distracted or suddenly drag the parent or guardian in a particular direction as this can throw the adult off guard.
-Stay calm and do not rush when walking on the street.
-Not open the car doors suddenly as they can get into a habit of opening the doors only after you say so.
-Do not play in the bus bay or on the roads.

Why we celebrate diwali?

Why we celebrate Diwali? Every child asks this question and sometimes it is very difficult to explain them the whole story. 
So here is the easy way by which you can narrate your kids the story of Diwali.

Why we celebrate Diwali?

Diwali is a festival of joy and prosperity, and a celebration of the victory of good over evil. This is the story of Ram and Ravan. A story related to this festival.

The most well known story behind Diwali is in the Ramayana, the great Hindu epic.
Thousands of years ago, in the city of Ayodhya, there was a wise and good king named Dasaratha who ruled along with his three queens and four princes.

The eldest, Ram and his beautiful wife, Sita, lived happily along with his other prince brothers and their wives. But one of King Dasaratha’s wives was jealous of Ram and demanded that he be exiled to the forest for 14 years so that her son, Bharat, be made king.

Having once promised his wife to fulfil any wish of hers, the helpless king exiled Ram to the forest. And so, Ram set off on foot accompanied by his loving wife Sita, and loyal younger brother, Lakshman.

A few years into their exile, a demoness named Surpanakha saw Ram and fell for his looks. She asked Ram to marry her. Ram refused and asked her to go to Lakshman instead.

But Lakshman also refused. Enraged, Surpanakha showed her true form and Lakshman cut off her nose and ears.

The demoness went wailing to her brother who was none other than Ravan, the demon King of Lanka. Ravan was furious and swore revenge.

With the help of another demon who took the form of a golden deer, he distracted Ram and Lakshman and kidnapped Sita from their hut.

When Ram and Lakshman returned, Sita was missing! They realised that something bad had happened while they were gone and immediately rushed to find her.

On their way, they came across an army of monkeys and bears that agreed to help them. Among them was a monkey named Hanuman who had once vowed to be at Ram’s service.

Now Hanuman was no ordinary monkey. He could fly over mountains, change size at will and had super-human strength. He had the power to leap across oceans in a single stride. So obviously, he ended up being Ram’s strongest ally.

It was Hanuman who finally found Sita, imprisoned in one of Ravan’s beautiful gardens. Hanuman reassured Sita that Ram would be here soon to rescue her.

He came back to Ram with Sita’s whereabouts and the army of monkeys, bears and men marched to Lanka.

Soon, a great battle started between to two mighty armies and Ram’s soldiers managed to kill all the demons, except one – Ravan.

The battle was now between Ram and Ravan. He gave Ravan one last chance to apologise and return Sita. Ravan instead rained down weapons on him. Ram too fought back relentlessly but despite all his efforts, nothing seemed to kill Ravan. Finally, Ravan’s brother Vibheeshan told Ram that Ravan’s weakest point was in his navel. Using an arrow given to him by the gods, Ram shot Ravan in the navel and killed him instantly.

And so, Ram and his love,Sita, were finally reunited.

Soon after, upon completion of their 14 years in exile, Ram, Sita and Lakshman returned home to find the entire city waiting for them! The streets were decorated with flowers and lamps and there was happiness everywhere

And this is why every year on Diwali Festival Facts, you see the streets, homes and offices lit up with lamps, like the city of Ayodhya, in celebration of Ram and Sita’s homecoming.



Diwali is INDEED the most awaited festival of the year. It is the festival of lights. Love, new clothes, and lights all over. Children await this festival more because of fireworks and sweets.
