The Power of Constructive Parenting (Part I)

Haven’t met the royal family yet? Here’s our Little Vihaan to help you! 😆

Little children are such wonders that with them, we tend to fall back to our childhood once again. This is an interactive video of our 2-year-old Little Vihaan building a castle with the little figurines we got with the colgate packs. I did the cutting work for him and we started to build the castle together. He learnt these new characters of the royal family today – King, Queen, Prince, Princess, Knight and also, Castle, Tower, Witch and Dragon. For some reason, knight was his favourite 🙂

I don’t know if it might look trivial to some. But having closely watched a child grow, I’ve developed a sense of admiration to the little creative surprises that he gives me. I had no idea what story he would come up with the characters. And it was a surprise to watch him bring alive his own swimming fantasy in the characters too, many of whom he made to swim in the river next to the castle 😆 For a two-year old, this little act is also a magical story, isn’t it?

When I asked him, what else he thinks will live with the King’s family, he said ‘Animals’ 🙂 For the animal lover and water lover in him, I made him stick some aquatic animal characters around the castle.

I am glad to have helped Vihaan in learning new characters and spur his creativity in idealizing a magical story out of his fantasy. For a parent, it is such interactive play-and-learn times that remind us of the power of constructive parenting.

This shall remain a memorable play session for both of us. My thanks to Colgate and Indiblogger!
