“Once you accept your children’s basic nature, you can contour your style to meet their temperament. To do so means letting go of your fantasies of yourself as a certain kind of parent and instead evolving into the parent you need to be for the particular child in front of you.” ?
SuperParents shares the story of Yuti Rahul Oza, a management consultant offering her services to startups and MSMEs, especially to women entrepreneurs and women led businesses in the areas of strategic business planning, financial reporting, market penetration and digital marketing. A CA inter qualified from The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), she started her career in the banking sector with ICICI Bank. She quickly realized her potential in providing financial and management services to MSMEs and had an exponential career graph.
However, priority changed overnight with the arrival of her little bundle of joy. She recalls of never being a 9 to 5 friendly person after her daughter was born. She devoted most of her time and was totally focused upon her daughter’s upbringing who is 8 years old now.
She firmly believes that nurturing a child is the greatest responsibility the nature imposes to lucky few and she never wanted to be deprived of the joy of being with her kid 24/7.
Once her daughter started going to school she restarted her career, getting ample amount of time for herself while her daughter is in school. Time management had initially been a tedious work but with the help of her family she could plan things well in time. She is a hands on mother, a teacher to her daughter and an amazing consultant . She admits loosing patience sometimes or being quick on reacting, however, she works on striking a balance between pampering & staying firm against any unreasonable behavior of her child.
Her parenting mantra keeps her cool during trying times. Every child has an inner timetable of growth. Growth is not necessarily steady, forward, upward.. It can be 3 steps forward, 2 back, 1 around the bushes, a few simply standing before another forward LEAP. She loves reliving her childhood and again passing happily through learning phase.
When asked about what qualities she would like to instill in her child, she mentions –
Sensitivity towards mother nature & a trait of being “Jack of all & master of one”. She tries to instill Gratitude, Self care, Self awareness, Honesty and faith in her daughter.
