Ying: “Mummy, I want Ah Ma (grandma in teow chew) to switch on the light for me.”

Me: “It’s ok dear, I’ll help you. Ah Ma’s leg is painful.”

Ying: “Why Ah Ma’s leg painful everyday?”

Me: “Ah Ma is old already.”

Ying: “Why Ah Ma’s old everyday?”

Me: “…”

Another brilliant listing from Magical Childhood site:

– That every child learns to walk, talk, read and do algebra at his own pace and that it will have no bearing on how well he walks, talks, reads or does algebra.

– That being the smartest or most accomplished kid in class has never had any bearing on being the happiest.

– That our children deserve to be surrounded by books, nature, art supplies and the freedom to explore them.

And the toughest among all, which I struggling a lot:

– That our children need more of us. We have become so good at saying that we need to take care of ourselves that some of us have used it as an excuse to have the rest of the world take care of our kids.

Yes, we all need undisturbed baths, time with friends, sanity breaks and an occasional life outside of parenthood. But we live in a time when parenting magazines recommend trying to commit to 10 minutes a day with each child and scheduling one Saturday a month as family day.

That’s not okay! Our children don’t need Nintendos, computers, after school activities, ballet lessons, play groups and soccer practice nearly as much as they need US.

– She should know that she is loved wholly and unconditionally, all of the time.

– She should know how to laugh, act silly, be goofy and use her imagination.

– She should know that it is always okay to paint the sky orange and give cats 6 legs.

– She should know that she’s wonderful, brilliant, creative, compassionate and marvelous.

– She should know that the world is magical and that so is she.

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

如阁下想栽培一位当医生的孩子,切记要教导他们有良心,慈悲心,同情心,同理心,医者父母心。问一问孩子,学医是为了什么,为了赚大钱?还是为了普救众生?如是前者,劝请他们放弃这念头吧!积积德。

也许听了太多医生为了赚多点钱,动不动就要病人开刀,给些无关痛痒的药吃。幸运的没事,向我爸就倒霉了。腰痛医生就说他有尿酸,结果傻傻的吃了十多年的尿酸药,弄得现在得了不知什么药物中毒,皮肤像烧伤一样,红肿,痒,脱皮;食欲不振,胃风,晕眩,无力;成天需躺在床上。

而且刚刚听说了一位友人带小孩看儿科医生,只是普通咳嗽,结果拿了一大堆哮喘的药,医生还劝他吸用nebulizer。

 造孽咯,那些医生的良知在哪儿啊。人家已经不舒服了还落井下石。

所以,父母们,要从小对孩子灌输良好的道德观啊!要对得起天地良心啊!

身为父母,我们有很多的责任要扛。很多时候我会忘了这最重要的一个:要好好保重自己的身体。

我很幸福,父母都健在。我们有幸在他们的保护下长大成人。

结婚生子时,这想法也不成出现过。至到最近,看着两个小冬瓜一天一天的长大了,开始开车特别小心,不再割车,不再超速;尽量不开夜班;尽量少吃油腻的食物;限制自己一天只可以喝一杯我心爱的Nescafe;多吃水果;多吃蔬菜;回到以前小时候,早睡早起。真的好怕,现在的社会这么糟糕,如果我们走了,他们怎么办。

我的朋友曾经对我说,”I always eat first. If I don’t eat first, where can I get energy to feed and take care of my children?”
