Joan - Writing WIthout Tears

“I run a preschool and always on the lookout for knowledge. Thara’s workshop was totally worth it. If you are a parent or an educator, this workshop is gold.


“Your content was much simplified and loaded with too much of knowledge. And I’m running out of words to appreciate your way of teaching.


“Writing without tears was the first online session I attended by Thara, and it totally blew my mind! They say knowledge is power, and that’s what I felt.


“It was an eye opener for me! His preschool is pushing him towards tracing I am helping him to build his hand just because of your session.

Questions you might have!

What is the 'Writing Without Tears' Program?

Writing without tears is a 6-day program to help parents to address early age writing. With this course, we aim to make children fall in love with writing. This course will touch upon all the foundational skills that aid in writing, activities to encourage these foundational skills, the importance of pre-writing skills. It also gives an insight into when is your child ready to right, the ideal grasp, and its development.

Where do I take the course? Is this a WhatsApp-based course or a Live workshop?

This is not a WhatsApp-based course or Live session. Instead, we have designed the weekly “micro-learn” format that fits naturally into your parent’s work-life.

Once you enroll, you will download the Totto Parents App where you can access the course in our “micro-learn” format. From the starting date, you will be able to view the videos, one day at a time. You will receive notifications for each day’s video and other learning tasks/activities that accompany them.

Why this weekly “micro-learn” format? How much time do I have to spend each day?

In the micro-learn format, content is delivered in short focused bites. Five to eight minutes. One bite at a time for a limited number of days.

This format also allows you to watch/listen to it at your convenience – without disturbing your daily workflow! And you will have practical solutions or activities to do and experience each day that can ultimately solve the problem you’re facing.

Can I not attend a webinar or watch it all together in one day?

How much do you remember from the last time you took a session? Maybe 5% of the whole session?

The most important aspect of the micro-learn format is this – it is scientifically proven to increase retention by up to 75%. In contrast, after attending a 2-hour webinar, you would have forgotten 75% of the information by the end of a week, even if you have taken notes!

Naturally, at the end of the week, you will have access to all the videos. And you can watch it together or return to any day’s video as many times as you want. This might be better than watching a 2 or 3-hour-long recording for reference later.

Is 5 minutes a day really enough?

The 5-minutes-a-day are time you will need to set aside each day to get all the information. We have taken extra care to design the program in a crisp and easy way to accommodate the content into very short videos. 

This will also include ideas and tips for practical activities you may try while spending time with your child. It works out well if you are a parent who is able to spend at least 15 minutes of uninterrupted time with your child every day.

How long do I have access to the course?

You will have lifetime access to the course on the Totto Parent’s App. As long as you’re on the app, you can return to any day’s video as many times as you want. 

Even more valuable is that you can use the discussion form (the comments section) to ask your doubts and get clarifications from the Totto Parent Mentor or course facilitator – even months after you’ve completed the course.

What else do I get apart from the video lessons?

Free printable, cheat sheets, etc depending on the accompanying activities. For example, a worksheet printable for writing practice.

Free one-to-one mentor connects – to discuss specific parenting issues. 

Course-specific give-aways – like a book, or bonus videos.

How do I know if this is the right course for me? I am confused.

We can help you find it out! Talk to our parent happiness associate or chat with us. Share your areas of concern and see if this is the right course for you.
