Being a good parent is hard work. As a parent, it is our responsibility to give the right nurturing and guidance to our children to help them discover their passion and purpose, and have a bright future as they blossom into confident, competent young adults.
Take a look at some of the best ways to raise a well-rounded, happy & healthy child.
Every child has his/her own genius. As a parent, your kids' innate talents are bound to surface, and it's important to encourage them to follow what they love, whether it's dancing, art, singing or sports. Do incorporate 1 or 2 activities into your child's daily routine.
Praise your children for a job well done, but don't forget to praise them for attempting something new outside their natural talent. This instils the importance of growing new skills and creates a passion for life-long learning.
As a parent it's up to you to regulate the time your child spends on gadgets. Whether it's engaging in imaginative play with their toys, or playing downstairs with friends, it's important your kids develop creative skills and actively socialise with children of their age in a fun environment.
Read to your children every day to help them develop a love for the written word and build their listening vocabulary, which will go a long way in their academics. Encourage diary-keeping from a young age, and respect their privacy. Writing will help your kids structure their feelings and find a healthy outlet for their emotions. At the same time, listen to what your child says and encourage them to talk freely and confidently which will help them build successful communication skills later on.
It's important to discipline your children and impose limits. At the same time try to understand them as little humans with individual thoughts and opinions. Encourage them to be independent and let them take responsibility for their actions. They will respect you for it.
Be your children's strongest support system. Love, affection and attention are crucial to their emotional & behavioural development. This does not mean spoiling them with material gifts. Words of love and praise will go a long way in boosting a child's self-esteem. Touch and contact help establish a sense of security for your child. Hug your children, it's the easiest stress buster for you and them!
At Gera's Song Of Joy we believe that a child's character development starts right at home. Good parenting requires consistency, patience, dedication and the right opportunities. Here's how we make parenting easier and enjoyable for you and your child.
I’ve been a sports person, and also captained my throwball and volleyball teams. I understand the importance of extracurricular activities in our growing up years.
Trainings provide a child with the required discipline when working within teams as well as gives one the chance to follow what makes you happy. It also enables an overall development!
Dance has been my passion since I was a child and I have been thrilled to see both my little ones have this in their genes too.
This opportunity really came to my doorstep through Gera. My daughters Lavanya and Diya have had an enthralling experience being a part of not just one but three Academies (The Shiamak Davar Dan..
I cannot thank you enough for making our journey with Gera so so interesting and mind-blowing. I had never ever imagined my life taking a beautiful turn with me beginning to start my career as a music teacher that too with SMA (Shankar Mahadevan Academy) and all this has been possible only because of GERA and YOU my dear.
It is only because of your efforts and kind gesture that I could meet the man himself (Shankar Ji) and have a small recording session with him. That was like a dream come true.
I am super excited to start my journey with SMA and Gera as a teacher now.
Apart from that, Me and Prateek have always been grateful to you for making Shiamak happen for us and I ..

The Christmas event organised at Astoria was a big success and a big step in bridging the gap between us and Gera. It was a memorable event as we are still in the beginning of our journey of life in our little home at Astoria. The kids have been the happiest of all and what more can we ask for when we see smiles on the faces of our little ones. Kudos to you and your team for making this event a huge success! Looking forward to many more in the years to come...
The Christmas party organised by Gera at Astoria this year was a great success with good participation from kids and parents. Our children Sia and Saish enjoyed the party to the fullest. Sia, in particular, had a gala time and reiterated her stand that Anita aunty's parties are THE BEST.... We as your customers take much pride in informing our friends that such goodwill gestures are one of the many differentiators Gera brings to us, which no other builder in Goa can boast of. Many thanks to you and your team for doing an excellent job in putting up this event. We look forward to the next one! A big thanks to the Gera Management for its efforts in community building...
