Do you find getting your child to do his homework a daily problem?
If that is so, you are definitely not alone. Almost all parents I spoke to told me they face this problem very commonly too. It is also one of the most common areas that children and parents fight over.
Does this scenario sound familiar to you?
Mother: DS, can you switch off the TV and go and do your homework?
DS: 10 more minutes, mum.
Mother: What?! 10 more minutes? You have been watching for the past hour! Don’t you have homework to do?
DS: yes, yes… But I don’t feel like doing…
Mother: You are such a lazy boy. Switch off the TV and go and do your homework now!

There are so many ways to express our love for our kids. Daddy and Mummy choose to B.L.O.G about our experiences. Memories, whether nice or sad (酸甜苦辣) are there for a reason. We would like to time-capsule our chidren's growth, and milestones. Maybe, when Daddy and Mummy have retired, we can look back at our Blog, and laugh ourselves silly :)
Here is a list of indoor playgrounds around Singapore:

With more and more videos for babies being produced and the sudden influx of new TV channels aimed at preschoolers, parents are once again asking "should I really let my child watch television?"
My baby Samson started watching TV at 6 months old with incredibly long attention span (an awesome hour!). I bet many of you would have screamed at me "YOU TERRIBLE MOTHER"! I can't help it. He is an active baby and when I played the babysongs, that's the only time I can get some quiet moment for myself while he enjoys.
Is watching TV really more harmful than beneficial for your baby?
There are two school of thoughts.
One says that babies under two years of age should not be allowed to watch any TV; the other says that limited amounts of high-quality educational TV accompanied by adult interaction are fine - and may even be beneficial. When DVDs are used correctly, the repetition and familiarity they provide can actually aid learning.
I have tried to make ice cream at home with 3 little ones recently. We have great fun. I enjoyed the process of making this ice cream with my kids. So do them. Of course may be they found a chance to taste a little bit of the yummy chocolate/milk mixture, whipped cream and chocolate chips when they help me to stir or mix it.
It tasted very nice and smooth. But don't keep more than 2 weeks as no preservative added. Share the recipe here:
My father loved to eat, and he loved to travel. He could not afford to travel before he grew old. After I started working, I brought him to visit many major cities in China. In 2007, my father had a major operation to remove a cancer tumor from his stomach. I promised to bring him to a cruise through the Yangtze river after he recovered. He fully recovered after a few months, but he could not walk long distances. I had to bring the wheelchair to the Yangtze river cruise. It was a big challenge for me because I was traveling alone with him.
I have written a blog about our trip : http://myyangtzerivercruise.blogspot.com/
Do you transfer them to your computer, file them nicely into different folders or just transfer them and forget about it? Or even worse, continue leaving them in your digital camera or video camera until it is forgotten?
I have a friend who still diligently prints out all her holiday photos and compiles them into an album, just like she would do if she had taken photos with a film. Another friend just sent me a pdf file, whereby she copied all her photos and put them into Adobe so that she can put in text commentaries.
