Understand what problems your child is facing

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!


Finally, a family friendly credit card

B.L.O.G , meaning I love you

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 :)
