Hi! We are Himani and Kalyani – two moms who turned into partners for their new baby – Partners in UpBringing. We both have a lot in common. From being trailing wives to living in the same condo, from being curious about parenting to being moms to two children, from talking to parenting experts to creating a podcast on parenting, we share a lot and have come a long way.

In this parenting journey, we have realized that the world has fast-forwarded, and so has parenting. While we can take inspiration from the upbringing techniques of our parents, we cannot exactly implement their parenting styles. Why? Because the parenting world has modernized. With unlimited exposure to the digital circuit, everything is now accessible at your fingertips. The social pressure to do better, multiple stresses, attractions, etc., increases parental tensity.

While living in nuclear families, away from our real homes, and with the demanding work life, we lack the ecosystem needed for the holistic upbringing of children.  Without much contact with our nieces or nephews and adapting to the fast-paced life with long working hours has made parenting a daunting task.

Many parents like us crave a piece of advice, wish to explore different perspectives, learn about the latest developments, and share their side of the story to inspire others. We want to be partners with these peers and share our learnings. ‘Partners in UpBringing’ is our endeavor to be the much-needed support parents need to smoothen their parenting journey of raising a child and make it more enjoyable.

Whilst achieving our goal, we crossed our path with many child psychologists, doctors, teachers, parenting coaches and fellow inspiring parents. Today, along with them, we have established an ever-expanding network that shares parenting tips, ideas, and stories and inspires parents to raise happy and confident children.
