Children enjoying clay…

Children of the wednesday class were curious and excited to use clay. They were given a choice of learning from the facilitator or making their own thing. Some of them wanted to learn, some wanted to do their own thing, some wanted to learn from others.

Children were not sure what to make with the sand. Slowly they let themselves go and then their imaginations would not allow them to stop 🙂 Crocodile/a pirate story/the milky way/eclipse and many other things.

Think-beyond workshop @ MagicHive by Mathangi from Think-bag

The four sesssion workshop (21st/22nd/28th/29th) on making children think beyond the obvious started on 21st at MagicHive. Children have been stretching their thoughts and have had fun sharing their ideas without any inhibitions. Learning from each other and enjoying listening to each other is fun and exciting.

Story telling @ MagicHive

Rashmi Kulkarni (rashmiwithstory@gmail.com) took children of 3yrs to 10 yrs into a world of imagination and joy. Children thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. Thank you, Rashmi for being with the children and allowing them ‘to be’ 🙂

Children exploring at MagicHive

Children have been exploring the medium of colours in different ways..spontaneous and the fun way with no right and wrong. Giving up their inhibitions of being clean and enjoying being messy. The younger ones exploring their emotions by creating a tool.

‘How prepared are we and our children’- Sex Education workshop for Parents 25th Aug @ Magichive

Talk on “How prepared are our children : On Sex Education”

As parents, we are responsible for the safety of our children. But can we be there for them all the time? Wouldn’t it be great if they are empowered to look after their safety? Is it possible? Is there an age to start? What would you do or How would you respond to the following situations –
You are watching TV with your child and you have some intimate scenes (ads??) that are broadcast in between
Your child wants to know where he or she came from
Your child asks you why she has to sit on the pot whereas her brother does not need to and many other questions
Do these questions make you uncomfortable? Join us in the parenting workshop on the above topic. The workshop would enable parents to look at options/provide perspectives. The session will explore common beliefs about sex education.

Some testimonials :
I learnt about the importance of learning the process of thinking and instilling it in your child. The sessions provided me a different perspective of things around me. Subha was wonderful and really effective in reaching out and connecting to the participants.
Sajid
We as a family are implementing our learnings from the “Chetana” workshop. It has helped us change our thinking and we learnt how to move forward.

I really do not have words for Subha. I was really skeptical about coming to a parenting session as I expected it to be too weird (with lots of questioning on our parenting style etc..). But you made it so comfortable for each of us that we were able to let go of our inhibitions and discuss everything with each other.
I am able to look at things from my son’s point of view now. My relation with my family has improved – be it with my son or husband. I am able to “own” up to my deeds. I have also stopped judging on anything and everything. The list goes on…. Thank you so much !
Fahmiya Sajid
Subha is very good interested in clearing all of the doubts we had. The way she took the class was quite interesting.
Mahalakshmi V
Excellent. Lots of energy and passion towards passing the learings. Chetana is a step towards human empowerment. Keen on attending the follow up sessions.
Chinmayi Anantha
Simply awesome! I re-located from the US 8 years ago after spending almost 2 decades out there. I have attended numerous corporate programs/workshops. I must admit that since my return to India, “Chetana” is perhaps the best program I have attended. This is one workshop that I look forward to attending every week and do not get tired of attending… God bless in creating more…
