一个男人的告白:

“我是个有洁癖的男人,我不随便和人共用东西;我的沙发,我的床,我的你。”

“我是个有洁癖的男人,无法接受一夜情,无法随便和人发生那种关系。我想婚姻关系是蛮适合我的。”

有个傻想,所以我们要从小教导孩子们身自爱。

(TIPS FROM PUBLIC HEALTH – SEATTLE & KING COUNTY)

WHEN TO KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME

HOW CAN WE LIMIT THE SPREAD OF H1N1 VIRUS (SWINE FLU)?

The most important thing is to keep sick people away from healthy people. So if your child is sick, you must keep your child home. Staying home when sick stops the spread of the flu and helps the sick person get well.

Answer these questions every morning before sending your child to school or child care:

  1. Does your child have a fever (100º F or 37. 7ºC)? If you don’t have a thermometer, feel your child’s skin with your hand. If it is much warmer than usual your child probably has a fever.
  2. Does your child have a sore throatcoughbody achesvomiting, or diarrhea?

If you answered “yes” to both questions above, your child might have the flu. Keep your child home from school for 7 days or until symptoms are gone for 24 hours, whichever is longer.

If you checked “yes” to only one of the questions above, keep your child home from school until symptoms are gone for 24 hours.

I also use the Kumon Workbooks for Maze, Tracing, Numbers and Words. One thing is that I do have to control them and not letting them finish the whole book in one day. 🙂

Kumon Workbooks

This is another follow up post about teaching languages.

I bought this Professor Parrot Speaks Spanish DVD for my children a year back. Also in our library, we have a few Spanish books. Just thinking to at least give them some exposure to this language, get some familiarity and comfort.

Professor Parrot Learns Spanish

2 months ago, my eldest daughter just come and tell me, “Mamee, I know how to count in Spanish from 1 to 10, uno, dos, dres, cuarto, cinco, …..diez”.

My point is: they won’t get confused after all.

Below are two sample worksheets I created f or my little princesses.

Sample worksheet For 3 years old 1

Sample worksheet For 3 years old 2

When I do the worksheet with them:

– I read the instruction aloud, point to the instruction word by word. I don’t expect them to recognize or pick up all the words. But I highlighted on keywords like ‘CIRCLE’, ‘START WITH’, ‘WRITE’.

This is another things I learn when managing the reading center, some sharing from some parents. Their children know the answer or how to do math, but when come to exam, because they don’t know how to read the instruction, they score poorly.

– I don’t expect them to know the word describing the picture, but at least I introduce to them what that object called in English (since we are chinese medium family) – another way to enrich their vocab.


1. 不看孩子的缺點,多稱讚孩子的優點。
2. 視小孩現有的舉動為成長必經的過程。
3. 不追求完美主義,視〞不會〞為理所當然。
4. 不拿孩子和別人比較。認同孩子的個性。
5. 不以學習能力為主。避免造成孩子之間競爭與壓力。
6. 認清現狀,相信孩子們的可能性。

For age below 3, the worksheet normally are surrounding maze, tracing. I did survey and compare Shichida worksheets and mainstream early childhood program like Kumon, they also has similar thing for this age group. This is the first step to train their writing / motor skill. And my two princesses enjoy it.

And what I learn from Shichida, we buy the whiteboard marker, and we put the paper into plastic ( those transparent paper holder you put in ring file one), then the kids can trace using the whiteboard marker again and again. No wasting of paper, and just nice for them as pencil is still to dangerous and a bit hard for them to grab at that age.
