A Few Tips to Try these Summers-
- Go for long walks and discover your child’s imagination.

- Go to your in-laws or cousins’ place to let them make new stories.
Set them free to unlearn the old and try your hands at a novel experience – cooking, art, language, sport, or anything they are anxious to know about. Basically, give them an experience that’s memorable. Give them your time, undivided attention and an experience of a lifetime.And for this, you don’t have to spend money.

This would really be awaited each year and give your family a re-boost for the new year.
So rethink and rejuvenate your soul these summers!!
