This Friday we decided to use the hula hoop as a group and had loads of fun.
We had a follow up session for the participants of Group 3 and Group 4 . We took up situations which we face everyday with our children and did role plays on that. We tried to understand how we could connect with our children and in a funny way realised that we were more into trying to get them to do what we wanted.
Over chai, chips and biscuits, had a discussion on how certain things work and some just don’t. We will be meeting next month in January 2012.
We had an interactive and fun 2 hour session at our office on how to understand and connect to oneself and to the child. We had role plays and activities. Different perspectives were shared by the participants which made the session interesting. Participants were enthused to try out different ways of connecting to one’s child and iteratively discover the ideas that work for them.
The session was taken by Subha Parthasarathy.
The Friday activity class is a 2 hr , once a week class wherein children are free to express views, share thoughts, explore possibilities through activities, role plays, games etc.
Learning with and from Children :-))
We started parenting sessions on “Understanding oneself to understand Children” in right earnest today. We had a lively and interactive session wherein participants went through various activities that attempted to highlight one’s belief systems and its impact on the way we look at our children / world.
These sessions are spread across six weeks that is held every Thursday between 12 PM and 2 PM.
Warm welcome to Group 5 ! We hope to enjoy this journey together and learn from one another.
We had an interesting 2 hour interactive session with the parents of children studying in “Aura Montessori” school in JP Nagar, Bangalore on 26th Nov 2011. Around 25 parents attended the session which was conducive to incorporating some activities to highlight some of the issues related to learnings etc.
Parental concerns regarding learnings, discipline, behavior, expectations etc.. were explored through activities & shared experiences that enabled parents to question some of their own perceptions.

We had the last session of “Module 2” with Group 4 on 23rd Nov 2011. We delved into different aspects of discipline and the effectiveness of “Co-operation”. The group wanted to meet again to stay connected to the various ideas imbibed across sessions and continue to share their learnings.
Welcome to our Blog. We would keep our visitors updated on events that are happening at Magichive. Some of my friends wanted me to put up a website and share thoughts/events in the public space. Better late than never. Hence this effort on the website / blog :-))
