Chennai: The Modern Gurukul:

Are you confused about raising your child? How many hours should they spend with the TV, IPad or XboX? Do you worry about what should they eat, drink and read? As the urban, nuclear family is becoming the norm replacing the traditional joint-family, what happens to the children who grow up with one singular support system? In The Modern Gurukul, popular actress Sonali Bendre Behl shares her three principles of parenting that will help you find a balance between tradition and modernity, and show you how to raise your child in the digital age. Personal, anecdotal and honest, it highlights the need for a return to our roots to raise a healthy, curious, and, most importantly, a compassionate child.
