Besides being a passionate blogger, I am a freelance writer for Gulf News in Dubai, UAE. I primarily write for their MyGuide magazine covering lifestyle, wellness and education related reviews.
Being engaged with them for the past 2 years, my scope of work has included several topics on children and parenting. And since these write-ups are so relevant to this blog of mine, I am taking the opportunity to share it with you.
This one’s for your bed-time reading. Hope you enjoy it.
