Being a working mom and reaching home at 8 pm, I am in no mood to tell my daughter stories when she goes to sleep. Am I a bad parent? I would not consider myself to be.
But we do go through the peer mommy pressure and try to be supermoms. But sometimes it is really difficult to be one. You cannot be a perfect mom in everything.
As a child, I loved listening to stories and the same is inherited by Krisha (my daughter).
There were days when I would tell a story to Krisha and go off to sleep, with Krisha asking, Mumma what’s next in story?
Over years I have found various podcasts that help me with regaining Krisha stories and much knowledgeable facts and giving me the much-needed rest.
Let me share with you the secret set of podcasts I have found making my life easier and also help reduce her screen time.
