Famous author Kahlil Gibran once wrote: “You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.”
And to raise children for “the house of tomorrow,” where we cannot reach even in our dreams, is a big challenge. The new book titled “Secrets to Raising a Smarter Child” by Dr. Dheeraj Mehrotra (published by Notion Press) deals with parenting secrets in crisp and actionable capsules to help parents in raising their kids in a smarter way.
