Hi MieVee, oh it's so nice to meet a parent who understands that the method is about how we parent. As for home practice, too often I get people complaining that the parents must do home practice - I always tell them it's the same as learning any other skill, like playing the piano - you have to practice and practice and practice, and the child cannot do it by himself.
I note you are based in KL - would you like anything from Singapore - we are travelling back to KL next week. Would be no trouble to help you get anything you need from here.

You're too kind! :) My baby #2's arriving in about 4 weeks, so we've sort of gotten everything needed. Haha, reliving the excitement again.

(Be safe driving in KL. Already 2 robbery cases within my circle recently. 1 ended quite badly. Make sure handbag is out of sight, esp when stuck in traffic jam.)

And my observation on home practice: only a small minority of Shichida parents do it consistently, and over many years. The rest are simply too eager to see results, then give up when they don't see any. The thing is every child blossoms at a different age and we parents just need to keep guiding him/her. And the real pleasure comes in seeing the child's amazing abilities when we aren't expecting any. :)

Have a smooth delivery MieVee!

Yes, Shichida is not an easy discipline. But good things don't come easy! I was hoping to find some mummies here who are enthusiastic about Shichida so that we can support and motivate each other, but seems not many leh.

There're only a handful who are enthusiastic and only a small portion of us in this forum, so very hard to find. Tried joining Shichida's parents volunteer group? I think the "serious" practicing parents are there.

So far, I've a circle of 3 other parents really into right brain education. 2 from Shichida, 1 with Heguru & Tweedlewink. We exchange flashcards and materials to save each other's time. 5-year old daughter of one of them is showing very excellent output, so the effort certainly pays off. :)

During this pregnancy, there're days or weeks when I'm tired and don't feel like doing any home practice. After a break, I pick up momentum again cos son asks for his "class"! I'm glad he enjoys home practice so much.

If you've soft copy of homemade flashcards & materials, we can exchange too. Just drop me a mail at http://www.mummysreviews.com/contact-me/

MieVee, yes I do have a few friends who are very into home practice but we don't swap that often (we tried to set up an arrangement but nobody followed through!). Oh well.

Someone must take the lead then, to keep the momentum going. That's why I prefer exchanging to uploading materials online. Exchanging keeps everyone accountable and on the ball.

Just contact the mums again to exchange. Sometimes we just get overwhelmed with other things. :)

Hi mummies,

my kids are in shichida too.
I would love to exchange home made practice materials.
I try to do home practise with them everyday.
