“Every ordinarily organized child may become a superior man, if only he is excellently educated.”

:

“Remember, dear Karl,” he would say, in effect, “these poor people have not had the advantages enjoyed by you. If they do not speak correctly, if they do not always behave as they ought, it is because they have not been taught properly in their youth. You must not do as they do, but neither must you condemn them. On the contrary, remember that they are God’s children like yourself, and that in spite of their shortcomings, they are precious to Him.”

The Education of Karl Witte or The Training of The Child

最近阅读这本安徒生童话精选,为了准备孩子晚上的睡前故事。可是发现有些故事不太适合我的小孩,至少我是这么认为。让我列举几个。

打火匣

我怎么回答孩子以下的问题,而且故事有点误导:

– 为什么士兵没有keep他的promise,拿了金子还要拿巫婆的打火匣呢?

– 那士兵为了拿巫婆的东西,砍死巫婆。这样教小孩似乎不真确。

– 士兵用抢来的神奇打火匣,让狗儿偷闯皇宫带走公主,这行为也不对啊!

– 士兵的狗儿为了救士兵,竟连公主的父母(国王,王后)都咬来乱扔,摔成血浆。这情景对学前小孩太血腥了吧!

– 公主还很高兴可以和杀死双亲的士兵结婚,实在太说不过去了。忠孝何在?

Ling and Ying like to play the Logico Primo .

Logico Primo

It is a gift from my hubby’s close friend. But one thing need mentioning is that they like it because daddy plays with them.

Same hold for another good tool we both: Mind Sparklers.

Mind Sparklers

If we are both busy and no one entertaining them, they don’t seem like to touch the toy at all.

Another nice article by  Dr James Dobson I bump into from Edu Fun Club 

Today I brought dad to do a CT scan. But I didn’t know that to perform a CT Scan of the abdomen, we should not have anything to eat for at least 4 hours. Need to have fasting. Same apply to gastrointestinal endoscopy procedure. The best is fasting after the dinner the night before.

Luckily after such a long wait in the hospital, the result turned out to be fine. At least not the C that huanted me the whole night. What a relief.

I heard from a friend’s friend that her mother was having the same symptoms as dad: excessive sleepiness, bloating( a lot of winds), fatigue, loss of appetite, and after seeking fews doctors and no answer given, finally met one good one who did a CT scan and discovered she had pancreatic cancer.

After hearing this, my heart sink like Titanic. Fast fast go check it out from the net. 

Pancreatic Cancer Symptoms

The main symptoms of pancreatic cancer include the following:

  • Pain in the abdomen, the back, or both
  • Weight loss, often associated with the following:
    • Loss of appetite
    • Bloating
    • Diarrhea or fatty bowel movements that float in water (steatorrhea)
    • Rarely may present with new diabetes in a person with weight loss and nausea
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)

The symptoms of pancreatic cancer are generally vague and can easily be attributed to other less serious and more common conditions. This lack of specific symptoms explains the high number of people who have a more advanced stage of disease when pancreatic cancer is discovered. 

By the time that pancreatic cancer is diagnosed, most people already have disease that has spread to distant sites in the body. Pancreatic cancer is also relatively resistant to medical treatment, and the only potentially curative treatment is surgery.
