In the last one year since our launch on August 1, 2013, Learning and Creativity has built up a treasure trove of short stories, poems, musings, opinions and reviews and also attracted a sizeable and loyal readership and a  rich repertoire  of authors and reviewers. We can proudly say we have the most varied range of authors – from 8-year-olds to senior citizens!

It’s time now to move into the next orbit.

With our first e-book Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm penned by National Award winning writer of books for children and young adults Ramendra Kumar, we venture into e-book publishing.

The occasion is just perfect. Ramendra Kumar, known as ‘Ramen’ among his friends and fans, has been conducting Creative Writing Workshops & Story Telling sessions in different schools around the globe.

Come September 5 – 9, Ramendra Kumar will be conducting Creative writing Workshops and Story Telling Sessions for school children in the age group from 7 to 15 years.

Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm will be released at a Special Session organized on September 7 by Dr. S. N. Subbramanian, Chairman, SNS Institutions, Coimbatore.

Ramen will then address the gathering of around 300 guests comprising parents from EuroKids, SNS Academy and SNS institutions followed by a Q&A session with the media. In other words, what can be a better place to talk to parents about parenting the right way than a workshop which strives to inculcate creativity, enthusiasm and enterprise in children?
Effective Parenting Book Release
Says Ramen, “My objective of writing the book is to share with the parents of today my hands-on experience as a child from a broken home, my observations as a writer for children and my own struggles as a dad. The book is by no means a profound model on the art and science of successful parenting, nor a quick fix offering an immediate and lasting solution. It is a framework offering only gentle suggestions, hints and thoughts which would hopefully serve the reader as a unobtrusive guide as he/she journeys across the tough terrain of parenting.”

Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm is about how parenting has to grow, learn and change with the times we are living in. During the time of our parents and grandparents parenting was no big deal. In fact, in almost all cases it was a shared responsibility. Since then the onslaught of change has created a new society and a new value system. The responsibility of bringing up the child now rests squarely on the parents. This apart, the expectations of the parents from the child and vice versa have increased phenomenally. With one and increasingly more often both parents busy in search of the 9 to 5 (or is it 9 to 9!) utopia, the situation is becoming a ‘pressure-cooker’ one.

Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm suggests a new avatar for the new age parent. A make over which requires he/she to be a Memory-Maker, an Empathy Emperor, A Humour Promoter, A Sports Catalyst and a Guru of Values.

Short StoriesThe book is neither jargon ridden nor infused with didactic advice. It is written in a reader friendly style and is peppered with slice of life incidents which are sure to touch a chord in most readers. An added bonus is the treasure trove of 25 delectable and inspiring stories punctuated with school capers and sports action, problems and pranks, madness and mirth, and lots more –  captivating tales  parents can share with their children.

As Dr. Anupam Thakur, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist and a faculty member at University of Toronto writes in his foreword – “Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm has the potential to make a good parent the best parent, or as my eight year old daughter put it when she was a pre-schooler: the ‘bestest’ parent ever!”

Why the book is a must read?

Says Ramen, “Since the time paradise was lost the ‘function’ of parenting has been steadily undergoing transformation. But never has the makeover been as cataclysmic as it has in the last decade or so, particularly in the Indian context. The joint family has morphed into double income nuclear family. The increasing competition, the quest for corporal nirvana and the obsession with the holy trinity of I, Me & Myself have turned every principle of parenting on its head.

The book offers a Paradigm of Effective Parenting comprising Five Pillars of Sharing, Caring, Fun and Joy, Healthy Living and Invaluable Values. I sincerely hope my straight from the heart, hands-on approach to parenting helps the reader become a more effective parent. ”

Effective Parenting: A New Paradigm

The new age parent has to be a Memory-Maker, an Empathy Emperor, A Humour Promoter, A Sports Catalyst and a Guru of Values.
