Parenting can sometimes feel like a lonely job. As parents, we want validation whether we are parenting right or not. We also get curious to know –
- how others are nurturing their kids,
- what attitudes they are instilling,
- what kind of an example are they setting as role models.
It helps us improve and grow. So we met 2 parents from the WOW Parenting family and asked them about their parenting strengths and weaknesses and how they are applying the WOW Parenting course.

ONE real-life implementation from your learnings from ‘Wow Parenting’
- I have consciously applied the Perfect Parenting video techniques on and off since I went through it diligently.

- I now see things from my child’s perspective and not just mine!
- I do not carry any guilts of my parenting mistakes. I learn and I move on. I see the new day in a new light.
As a person, what has been the impact of ‘Wow Parenting’ on you?-
Naren’s practical guidance and his unconditional love for me because I am a parent has increased my confidence. I do not carry the pressure of being a PERFECT parent. Like any skill, I have realized, I have a scope to make mistakes too. It makes the experience real. I do not need any pretense. I am aware I am not a perfect parent but I can keep working on it under his loving guidance.
I really sometimes feel when parents say my child has this problem .. or my child has that problem… I wonder if the problem is actually with child or parent. Sometimes parents don’t see where they go wrong or how they may affect the child. I was in the same boat. I am not perfect. I have opened up all doors and windows and aim to have a beautiful family.
Imagine that your child has written an autobiography. In that autobiography, there is a chapter called ‘What I learned from my parents’. What do you think will be the main points of that chapter?
WOW, what a question 🙂 too hard to answer but yes
- they may write about how I made them do things independently since a young age which helped them become smarter with their work.
- How I helped them learn to share and understand others emotions..
- How I made them understand that only winning is not important.. the entire process matters equally.
- How life gives us many opportunities and we mustn’t give up.
Now I really wonder what my kids will write. Amazing exercise Naren and Wow Parenting team!! Left me speechless 🙂
