Dear Shyamala, Thank you for sharing your niece's story! So glad to hear that she is doing what she loves! My post might have given the idea that we are putting pressure on our son! Actually, it's quite opposite. We try to raise our kids as normal as possible. Our normal might be a bit different though. We all relax with a book (now my kindergartener has learned to read, we all can sit down with our book), bedtime involves reading for 45 min to an hour and we discuss work at the dinner table (I know it's not advised but that's when my husband and I see each-other usually).
