Parent Empowerment parent-empowerment

Affection without sentiment, authority without cruelty, discipline without aggression, humor without ridicule, sacrifice without obligation, companionship without possessiveness.-- William E. Blatz

Keeping in mind the crucial role parents play in nurturing their child’s personality, we at ripples offer Parent Empowerment programmes to help parents equip themselves with necessary know-how and hands-on ways of handling physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual needs of their children. Becoming aware of children’s needs help parents to nurture them in ways that optimize the inherent potential and make way for development and blossoming of wholesome and dynamic personality.

Home Bound Programme

Home Bound programmes are designed for children who don't have access to remedial help or whose parents wish to teach their children themselves. Based on the stated need and requirement of the child, we tailor individual parent sessions to equip them with specific teaching skills and techniques.

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I’d do more hugging and less tugging.
