U ok? Coping alone.... Can elder boy help a little?

苦尽甘来? I think for first six years of tofu boy's life - yes. But he is still evolving. 以后什么 pattern 还不知道。



I never thought ah boy would become like this. I brou up elder boy with an iron hand, set good example in front of my boys. I used a much softer approach with ah boy as he was really really very 乖.

Pple always say children learn by looking. Yes, they look, but they also choose to either follow or do otherwise.

I told him it is very sad that our relationship is so strained now.

For some reason, your last sentence saddens me. It's painful to hear that from a mother to a child.

In terms of bringing up children, you definitely have more experience than I do, so I'm in no position to give you advice.

Having met both your kiddos a few times, I can tell that though they're brothers, they've very different personalities. Your ds1 comes across as someone who is reserved but with a high level of self-control, a bit like yourself.

Your ds2 is more unrestrained, more of a non-conformist type, and so may appear to be impulsive. Yup, they looked to me to be as different as day and night.

There's one thing I really like about your ds2 - he is extremely extroverted. How I wish my ds can be liddat too.

Have an early rest, Jen. You sound really tired...take care! Get well soon - to ah boy...Is it reflux or gastric flu? Did the doc give him a jab?

That is one thing I do with my boys- never hides your true feelings.

Trust me, it hurts me a lot to say those harsh words.

To many, love is unconditional. To me, it is only partly true. My love is conditional on the basis that you also give yours. I am not so 伟大 to be always at the giving end.
