Parenting Articles

Here are quick links to parenting articles that I've published on the South Asian e-zine ABCDLady.com. I don't feel the concerns of my generation of Indian-Americans in the role of parents has been addressed anywhere. Not only are we balancing homes, family, career, but traditions and culture. Also, we have to balance the expectations from our family, our friends and ourselves. It's not easy, is it?

I liked the article on food allergies. It's purely hypothetical but I wonder about how hard it will be to raise a vegetarian child someday. I was fortunate in that I could always go home for lunch thru out grade school and HS.

Taamommy - I think so, yes..it does ring a bell now ;-)

ZenDeni- I don't think raising veg'n children is hard as long as you can control their food. Once they want to make their own food choices or follow their friends' leads, I think it'll be a challenge. (This blogsite is begging for a post abt veg'nism, isn't it?? :-)
