for the kids, i start with a tshirt, then thermal underwear, then a sweater, preferably turtle neck, a scarf then with the down feather jacket. winter socks, snow boots and gloves complete the outfit everytime we go outdoors. looked huge and bulky but feeling warm is most important. when we were indoors, just remove the jacket.


i just realized i forgot to let the kids wear pants! :rotflmao:

if want to ski, needed those waterproof, windproof pants. if not, just thick jeans will do. for the colder nights, i added a pair of stockings too. :smile:

as parents, with our best efforts, best brainwashing techniques, when cupid shoots his arrow, love strikes, nothing matters anymore other than our blessings.

i tend to see things a bit more open. partner they'll have to face day in day out, as parents, we want to lead our own life once our job is done. they have their own life to lead too. :smile:

Haiz, what else but issues with our kids and drive us crazy.

At the rate dd is going, I'll be lucky if I still have hair to pull out when she does her PSLE. Got a couple of calls from her teacher regarding something she did in school. And that was right after a stunt that she pulled with me.

She is grounded for 2 weeks, no TV, no going out in the evening to play with friends, no phone, no computer access unless it's for work. But doesn't seem to affect her at all. She kept herself busy with painting her toe nails, making silly bookmarks for all her friends, composing nonsensical songs. I have to bite my tongue to keep from scolding her further each time I see her like that. The issue has been raised, talked about, she acknowledged her errors verbally, promised that she will not 'do it again'. I have to take that as it is. Problem is her actions tells me otherwise. haiz. see :frustrated:

Sorry, don't mean to rant.

funz, i can totally understand the frustration u have. but, in all honesty, i must say you have a unique character in your dd that is similiar to yours. that never bow down, never say die attitude is a sure winner when put to the right situation. when both of u is put together, you'll get sparks. that's why she gets to u so much.

rant all you want here, get back some sanity in the meantime. :hugs:

Nothing I can offer, but some experience.
DD was the same in her tweens - defiant, sometimes just for the heck of it. Drove me crazy. But the bright side is the teenage years are so much easier. During her tweens I dreaded even thinking about her teens. We share a more friendly relationship, we can discuss issues like adults ( mostly) , the immature child in her stills lurks around , but mostly manageable.

So hang in there.
