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!

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 :)

Is Watching TV Really More Harmful Than Beneficial For Your Baby?

See video

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.
