Parenting is a major task! All you want is for your adorable young one to have all he or she desires.

When we become parents, we all share the same concerns. As time passes, this simple request becomes the most difficult task of all. Let’s have a look at how Ayurveda can assist!

Parenthood is celebrated in Ayurveda. Giving birth is an extremely vital part of the human race’s survival. In Ayurveda, conception is defined as the union of sperm, ovum, and the soul. We should love and worship this soul, according to Ayurveda, because it is a small portion of God (Supersoul).

Garbhadhana sanskar is a technique that assures a baby’s pleasant impressions are created by the parents-to-rigorous be’s habits. Once the baby is born, all efforts and activities must be directed toward the child’s best interests.

Ayurveda is divided into eight branches. One of these is Koumarbhritya, which is devoted entirely to children’s health and well-being. The Kashyapa Samhita is the oldest Ayurvedic work on koumarbhritya (childcare). It goes on newborn care, immunity-boosting herbal formulas, and children’s healthy growth and development in great detail. Here are 10 parenting tips based on koumarbhritya notions taken from Ayurvedic principles.

In Hinduism, Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of Shodasha samskara (16 rites of passage). These rites represent significant changes in one’s life path. Samskara literally means ‘to purify’ or ‘to generate favorable impressions.’ These samskaras are designed to highlight your child’s positive nature while also assisting them in adjusting to their new stage of life. They instruct us on what to do and when in the context of parenting. 

Two instances are provided below.

  • At 6-8 months of age, when the teeth have begun to emerge, conduct Annaprashana sanskar (first feeding with rice/solid food other than milk).
  • Upanayan sanskar is performed when a child reaches the age of eight. It’s all about preparing to enter the school system and spending time to learning. This highlights the optimum time to move your attention away from fun and toward study and discipline.

Infants under the age of one year should not be exposed to particularly bright and/or artificial light, according to Vaghbhata, the author of the Ashtanga sangraha treatise. A modest quantity of mellow sunlight improves vision, but too much bright sunlight can harm visual development. In today’s environment, spending time in front of the TV or computer takes up more time than spending time outside in the sun, therefore we’ll turn our focus from sunshine to screen time here. For youngsters under the age of three, screen time should not exceed one hour.

Recognize and realize your child’s Dosha and manas (psychological) constitutions.

The Dosha constitution will inform you about potential health problems and how to avoid them. Manas, or psychological constitution, will aid you in recognizing and comprehending their personality characteristics.

Ensure that your children go to bed and wake up at roughly the same time each day. 

In all aspects of life, Ayurveda believes in keeping a natural rhythm. The greatest strategy to ensure overall health is to follow the daily circadian rhythm (waking up by sunrise and sleeping by 10 p.m.). Keep your children’s resting and waking schedules consistent to help them stay in line with their natural body rhythms.

Give your children a well-balanced diet.

Always feed your children organic, fresh, home-cooked, satvik, nourishing meals. Seasonal fruits should be included.

Apply sound logic to the task at hand.

The Charaka Sanhita expressly states that you should never instill dread of evil or monsters in a child’s head in order to force them to accomplish something. When you ask a child to complete a chore, provide them with logic that they will grasp. This will help you develop the habit of looking for and understanding the reasons behind your decisions. They will enquire further. This may irritate a parent, but it is a technique to encourage their innate curiosity and inventiveness. 

As your children grow, change the way you treat them.

‘Kids are to be loved till the age of five,’ says a Sanskrit saying. Discipline and norms should be imposed from the age of five to sixteen. They should be treated more like adults once they reach the age of sixteen or seventeen.

Allow children to watch, experiment, and experience the environment over the first five years. Treat them with love and respect so that they will learn to treat others the same way. The educational period of a child’s life begins after the age of five. The disciplined effort is required to gain knowledge and master abilities 

Do not make comparisons between your children and others.

Every child is one-of-a-kind in their own way! Encourage them to reach their objectives without comparing their progress to that of others. Allow children to understand that failing is okay; what counts is that they try their hardest.

Assist them in developing their intellect.

According to a recent study, today’s children are more anxious and stressed than children in the 1950s. Overwhelming demands placed on children and their ability to meet them cause stress. Introduce them to yogic breathing techniques and aasana practise to help them enhance their motor abilities, concentration, and cognitive processes.

Try Ayurveda for yourself!

Children learn through seeing and listening to adults. If you begin to live an Ayurvedic lifestyle for yourself, your children are more inclined to do so as well.
