Advice to give your son

Your son will grow up to be a man someday and he will need to navigate the world by himself. Here are 8 pieces of advice you should give him to become a better and stronger person.

There is No Substitute for Hard Work

Life will present several shortcuts to do things. However, you should always question whether this shortcut is the right way to move forward and worth taking the risk.

Life is a marathon. Do not hold back yourself from putting effort into achieving your goals. Hard work always pays in the long run.

Respect People

Our patriarchal society usually puts men on a pedestal leading to believe that they are superior to women. Break this stereotype. Treat every woman in your life respectfully and equally.

You should also respect every person in your life, be it elders, children, employees, colleagues or friends.

Be a Gentleman

Act like a real gentleman. Your actions, words and manners should be such that people know that chivalry is not dead. Be honest and authentic in whatever you do. Always dress up smartly and present yourself well in both appearance and character. Do not do anything immoral or illegal.

Do Not Take up Bad Habits

Stay away from cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, gambling and other bad habits no matter how much stress or peer pressure you face. These things will adversely impact your health, shorten your lifespan, and may ruin your relationships.

Be Smart with Money

When you start earning money, you will feel a sense of freedom and an urge to spend it all. However, the wisest thing to do is to save first and spend later. Start investing your money in good financial schemes early on so that you build a sizeable corpus by the time you marry, have kids, or retire.

Make Time for Your Health

Personal and professional responsibilities may take up most of your time. But, don’t ignore your health in the process. Dedicate a few hours a week doing some form of exercise. Whenever you feel things are overwhelming you, take a pause.

Be Compassionate

The world needs more kind people to reduce the suffering. Don’t let your ego, anger, frustration or superiority come in between you and others. Show compassion and empathy to people at every chance you get. Forgive others and ask for forgiveness. Be humble.

Love and Trust Your Family

Family is above everything else. It is the family that you can always depend on in the toughest times. They will have your back. So, do not take your loved ones for granted.

Can you resonate with these life lessons for your son?

Here are some sample reviews from parents, to help you to share your own experiences:

Best classes for mathematics in Erandwane/Kothrud area. Limited kids per batch and give personal attention. We had a very good experience. My daughter is happy with teaching by ***** teacher.

Very engaging and fun filled sessions for the kids .My 8 year old throughly enjoyed all the sessions. Kids get a platform to express their views on various topics. Suggestion is to make this workshop extended from 1 month to 2 months or more.

My child has made excellent growth. The teacher gives attention to every child adequately and my child is very eager to attend the classes. And the teacher also has excellent skills in art.

We have seen ***** school growing from a pretty new school to a developed school in last four years. They focus lot on academics, extra curricular  actives and lot more.  They embed a lot of fun activities with academics which makes kids picks the basics as well as advance topics pretty well.  Teachers are attentive and they provide a very elaborated feedback about the child on quarterly basis. In short it's fairly a good option for kids for their overall growth.

Highly mismanaged branch of *****. Poor planning. No proper communication with parents. Teacher retention is very low. Good teachers gets transferred to other centres. In past 3-4 years 3 principal changed. Everything they do is for name sake. Workshops/ seminars are more of a sales  pitches. 10% return of value for your money.
