The Importance of Having Patience in Parenting

SAMSUNG CSC

It’s 2am and I can’t sleep. I watched something awful on Youtube and it is haunting me still. It’s a cctv recording of a father and his teenage son arguing. The father took out his gun, placed it in front of his son, dared him to shoot the dad but the son shot himself instead. Without even hesitating, the son took the gun and pulled the trigger. In just a fraction of a second the […]

Parental Guidance

Parental-Guidance

Thankx to Nuffnang we got the opportunity to catch this comedy Parental Guidance at e@Curve recently.  When his daughter goes away for work, a grandfather (Billy Crystal) finds himself having to take care of his three grandkids using 21st century methods — though he soon resorts to an old-school style of parenting. When I watched this movie, I kind of like relate to Alice but I’m sure I’m not that bad-lah. At least I let […]

Raising a genius

baby-on-ipad

“I tell you, I really think my 12 month-old boy is a genius! Just today, I was playing some music on my iPad and he came near to increase the volume! He can actually adjust the volume!” Sounds familiar? In this present world we live in, too many parents think we are raising an Einstein just because our kids can do things that we are incapable of when we were younger. As much as we wish […]

The RIGHTs and WRONGs of parenting

I don’t know where to start or where to end but I know I have to write this out or else I’ll get more and more people buzzing me asking if I’m okay. Yes, I was upset today and yes, my Facebook status says it all. Out of a random chat with a friend, this came out, “be honest, i think ethan still need to learn to respect u and william more. If he ever […]

Spare the rod and spoil your child?

spanking

To spank or not to spank? It is an age-old question. I would love to tell parents not to spank their child but I can’t, because to discipline a child we need to look at the complete picture. But what I like to say is if you need to spank, please do so only on the bum or hands; never hard enough to leave scars or unsightly marks of your handprint or the rod. Handprints […]

Parenting Conflict

parenting conflicts

When my son was born he was not delivered with a user manual attached to him. My husband and I went through endless trials and errors raising him and we are still learning. It can be quite an adventure – rewarding one moment, challenging the next split second. Raising a child is no different from marriage; it is all about give and take. Playing the role of a co-parent is no easy task. It requires […]

Stressfree Childhood – Is it possible?

thumbnail

I wrote this article during my writing stint for an online magazine last year. I wrote a total of 7 articles on parenting and contributed some craft ideas and then I had to stop due to time constraint. I shared all my published articles in another blog of mine but I’m shutting down that blog soon. Before I shut down that blog, I’ll share those articles here instead starting with the last post I wrote […]

The fon dropped and it broke!

Ethan is having a one week break from school and is now with me 24/7. Gone are the mornings when I have 2 whole hours all by myself to update my blog and blog hop. Now, the first thing I do is prepare breakfast, then do laundry, then cook lunch, then wash dishes, then house chores that can go on and on and never end and when I finally have the time, I’ll play with […]

Money sense in kids

I don’t remember at what age money first fascinated me. I do remember though that I was always on the look out for coins on the ground. The joy of discovering them was just priceless; not that I could do much with them though. Kids these days have it better than us. They are often pampered with luxury but I try not to splurge on my kid. I want him to learn to appreciate money. […]

Handling Tantrum

Many parents find disciplining a toddler to be a very difficult task. Some would take the ‘easy’ way out by resorting to military style disciplining. Unfortunately this method usually only involves a one-way communication where the parents dictate and the toddlers listen, or rather are forced to listen. The more patient parents will use various methods of disciplining a toddler. There is no one sure way to discipline a toddler. It usually involves around the […]
