Let's paint the Town Red - Happy Holi!!!❤️


Hi,

Bonani (Counselling Psychologist) is back with this special edition on Holi…🤩


I hope you have started implementing the morning habits that I told you about last week. 😉

Anyways, how are the festival preparations going? 😃

I fondly recollect my childhood Holicelebrations, where memories of colourful abir (powders), sweet gujiya, warm sun, and pure joy with loved ones flood my mind. Even the preparation, like cleaning the house and cooking traditional dishes, was eagerly anticipated. However, as time passed and distance separated me from my family, I can't help but feel a sense of nostalgia and longing for those carefree days of my childhood. It seems the stories and importance behind the celebration of Holi have faded away, leaving me longing for those happy times spent with my loved ones.


Holi is not just about splashing colours and having fun; it's also an excellent opportunity for parents to strengthen their emotional connection with their kids. I remember holi was an emotional bond back in our times. What a time it was when:


  • We use to Engage in Playful Activities: Holi is a time for fun and frolic. Engage in playful activities with your children, such as playing with water guns, and balloons, or colouring each other's faces. This will not only generate laughter and joy but also create lasting memories. 💚



  • We were taught Gratitude and Empathy: You can also do this, parents. Take this opportunity to teach your children about gratitude and empathy. Encourage them to share their sweets and colours with others and be grateful for what they have. This will help them develop a sense of kindness and compassion towards others. 💛


  • We created Traditions: Traditions play a vital role in creating emotional bonds. Establish family traditions such as making a special Holi dish, playing certain games, or visiting a particular place every Holi. This will give your children a sense of belonging and create a feeling of togetherness. ❤️


  • Strengthen Emotional Bonds: Holi is a time to strengthen emotional bonds with your children. Spend quality time with them, play games, sing and dance together. These activities will help you create lasting memories and strengthen your bond with your children. 💖

And And...


  • We were taught to respect Diversity: Holi is a festival that celebrates diversity and inclusivity. Take this opportunity to teach your children the importance of respecting people from different backgrounds and cultures. Encourage them to celebrate Holi with their friends from different communities. 💙


Remember, Holi is not just about the festival; it's about creating happy memories and building strong relationships with your children. So, let's celebrate Holi with love, joy, and warmth.


Can we bring those little, happy and lovable times back by encouraging the same values in our kids?


Happy Holi! 💚💛❤️💙💖
