About Me

I am a stay-at-home father of five and half-years-old twin daughters, and also a home-schooling parent. A proponent of FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement and slow, conscious living, I quit the corporate rat-race when my twin daughters turned two and half-years-old. My wife re-joined her enterprise, Dirty Feet, our first child.

As an experiential and hands-on parent, I undergo the revelations on this refreshingly unpredictable journey and the bliss and anguish that comes with parenting full-on. Along the way, I chronicle my experiences, thoughts and goof-ups whilst learning to grow up together at mydaughtersandme.com.

From the day-to-day obvious of how to make children eat all their veggies, have milk daily, take medicines without a fuss, I wander about child-led parenting, gender stereotypes, labelling, rewards/punishments in my blog. Also, the outdoor escapades and the simple joys of our daughters’ childhood.

Hitherto unschooled, we are planning to home-school our daughters as they turn six years. This is helping me develop a perspective about our country’s education system (not too charitable, to say the least). I articulate these opinions as well on my parenting blog.

Welcome to our world.

Thank you for your time. Hope you like it here. My name is Chirag Mehta, a stay-at-home father.
