Written Testimonials


MagicHive
1. I learnt more about myself, my beliefs and how it impacts my kids and family.
2. Parenting is a joint effort by a father and a mother to learn about each other, their beliefs about themselves and others and using that awareness to construct a family. Marriage and kids doesn’t entitle one to become a parent. Openness to learning, sharing and committing to the development of their kids is a first step towards becoming a good parent.
3. Everyone was surprised to see a father sitting among 10 mothers to learn parenting but I was surprised that not a single father was there in your class. But it gave a good perspective of how mothers think, their concerns in raising the kids and how as a father, I need to support and contribute to the family.
4. True success at the end of life doesn’t come from being called a ‘High achiever’ in one’s career. True success comes from peace in all areas of life whether it is work, family, money and community. Even if one pillar is not happy, we cannot be happy. Children grow up very fast and we should not regret later that we lost out on ‘living’ with them. If we want to achieve great things in career, then we need to first find the balance in life. Once we achieve the balance, we can succeed in anything.
5. To sum it up, Kids need our presence and not our presents. The i-pads, i-pods, the Wii’s cannot match the ‘Hide&Seek’ that I play with my kids.
