Of different parenting styles.

Google ‘types of parents’ and a lot of articles come out from all over. What kind of parenting style do you think you fall under? We are not going all judgemental here and go about how others parent, but time to time, I do a self-check on myself to make sure that I am adopting the right style and approach (that I want) to guide Charley as she grows. There are 4 categories of parenting: Authoritative parenting; Authoritarian parenting; Indulgent parenting; Neglectful parenting. Of […]

2016.

It’s been awhile. I have taken some time off my blog to digest some thoughts. But more importantly, I’ve taken time off to spend real quality time with Charley.  Why would I say real? You mean all these time I’ve spent with her wasn’t real? It is! Facing each other all day everyday is definitely being together. But what I really want is to not be preoccupied with other thoughts and things to do; to sit down and play with […]

Happy 23 months!

I love you to the Moon and Back. Oh wait. Yes I love you very much. But there are days that you really drive me crazy. By crazy, I mean fuming hot and speechless, and sometimes forcing out inaudible laughters.  Happy 23rd Month darling!   In another few weeks you will be 2 years old and these days, I have been getting a taste of what ‘Terrible Two’ entails.  It must be a good thing in a positive way, because […]

How to Guide your Children (Colours)

IMG_5774

from Every Moment is a Teachable Moment, by C. — When planning to teach a concept, focusing on one attribute helps make your instruction or expectation clearer. E.g. When you want to introduce “Yellow” and “Blue” (with the topic on colours in mind), you may want to use two objects of the same kind and size, but differs in colour to emphasize the main focus of the lesson, as size and object remain constant. 1. Start by showing only one (e.g.ball). “This is a yellow […]

Is it time for school?

Each time I look at Charley, she seems to grow a little bit more than yesterday. It is a joy watching her grow. Although I cannot deny it can become a chore trying to make her go to bed these days. I guess that’s the start of the terrible twos, where cute little babies turn into cookie monsters.  I’m hoping it gets easy for me when the time really comes. We are currently 4 months to 2 years old!  Happy 20 months […]

Little Suite for C!

Whenever I go out shopping with Charley, I am always swooned over by how cute those little girls clothes are. This, that, trust me, I want to get every piece of what I’ve seen that sometimes I ended up buying something forgetting how these material affects my little girl when she wears them. Take for instance, I’ve bought this really awesome jeans looking shorts from X brand, but they are too thick and the material is rather coarse (not forgetting […]

Happy 15 months!

Charley turned 15 months and here is an artwork from her (I swear no help was given by me!)   She is quite capable of letting us know what she wants/ likes/ dislike. When she wants something, she starts pointing at that particular thing and refuses to go away till she gets it. Of course, she doesn’t always get what she wants. Especially when she starts throwing tantrums. She has also learnt to throw away her diapers into the dustbin […]
