Roots and Wings- A Handbook for Parents (Rupa & Co)
As parents, our dreams for our children are noble-we want them to be successful, confident, happy and good. We do our best, even stretch beyond the available resources-time, efforts, finances etc.- to provide an environment that would facilitate their optimal development. Yet more often than not we find ourselves at loggerheads; frustrated, exhausted and uncertain of the rightness and efficacy of our parental efforts and skeptical of the potential of our children as well. Often our efforts fail. We find them struggling with low self-esteem,
loneliness, boredom, obesity; suffering from stress, burn-out, depression. Our instincts tell us that something is not right, yet what is, we do not know. Kids do not come with a manual and the jargon of work on parenting is often conflicting and polarized.
This book addresses parenting conflicts and dilemmas; how to manage the thin line between freedom and structure, space and control, being a mentor and being a friend, our expectations of the child versus his native endowments. This book is about giving our children roots, so that they can stand firm; and wings, so that they may soar and achieve their potential.
With in-depth research and interviews with such personalities as Kumar Mangalam Birla, Jaya Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Jogen Chowdhary, Mrinal Sen, Hemant Trivedi, Kiran Bedi, Javed Akhtar and Sanjeev Kapoor, Roots and Wings shows you ways you can help your children along the long and winding road of discovery - within and without, of the self and of the world at large.
