Growing up I always understood the importance of being self-reliant. This is why, as Mysha grows up, I want her to have the confidence to make decisions and follow her heart. Some of my mantras for helping Mysha build independence are:

I use chores as a teaching tool:
Accomplishing simple day to day tasks helps her develop a sense of achievement and responsibility. I have ensured that Mysha washes her plate after dinner to help her understand the value of hard work and self-reliance.

Allowing her to solve problems and only helping when required:
It is important to let children make mistakes as this helps them understand how to solve problems on their own. Mysha was once stuck with a few problems on her class work project but instead of solving it for her, I allowed her to find the solution on her own which she eventually did.

Positive risk taking:
One of the ways to develop independence is to teach them how to safely navigate the environment outside of home. Mysha is very fond of cycling & skating and when she adventures out alone, I tend to worry, however, I have learned to be ok with this as it helps her build confidence.

Along with ensuring children develop an independent mindset; it is equally important to make sure that their future is financially secured. One way to do this is with a plan like GIFT from ICICI Prudential Life. This plan offers a life insurance cover, along with benefits in the form of guaranteed lump sum or guaranteed regular income to help us secure our children’s financial future. It provides tax benefits on premiums paid & maturity benefits.
With this plan we can GIFT our children a brighter independent future!

Kyuki agar tayari sahi ho toh jeet pakki hai!!
