Do we really need the rod?

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 29, 2007

I guess caning kids had never been the culture of my family. Even as early as my grandfather, he never cane my mum. And, of course, my mum never cane me as well. However, we still have cane in the house. But, that doesn’t mean we have to really cane our kids. In fact, the cane is mostly used to frighten the dog.

I will give you a good example why we shouldn’t cane our children. My hubby has been cane by her mum when he was a boy. And, he practically tell me every now and then that he will never do that to his girl. And, as for me, I feel proud of my mum every time when people told me they’ve been cane by their parents during their young days.

Just ask yourself a simple question before you use the cane, if you believe canning can solve the problem.

” Do you like people to cane you?”

“If your answer is no. Then, do you still expect your kids to forgive you for canning them?”

I believe there are so many other ways to discipline our kids. It is not necessary to use cane. I still strongly believe that our kids will appreciate it so much as they grow up, if you never cane them. At least, I did.

I guess that’s it. That’s what I want to share here. Thanks to Judy Chow and shoppingmum.

My First Tag

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 25, 2007

Looks like Elizabeth got her first tag here now. This is sweet as she just get her first award for this blog about a week ago. Really thanks to this vain mummy who has sent this first tag to mummy. However, mummy thinks it’s more appropriate to do it here rather than in her personal blog cause it’s about “The age that I wish my child will stay to be “.

Oh! I just can’t wait anymore. Can we start now? Yippie! 😉

It’s really hard for mummy to decide as I am still so young. However, I think she would prefer me to grow up faster and stay in the age of 3 or 4. This is because through her experience of teaching in Kindy before, she still feels children in the age of 3 to 4 is really cute and lovely.

This is the time most of them will talk fluently. They start to communicate well. They are still clingy. But, they can be independent in certain ways such as having their own ideas. They learn up things real fast in this age. Thus, they will always surprise us with their unique thoughts and impressive deeds. Also, they are still busy exploring and just won’t easily give in to rules yet. They are still cute cute baby, but just much more intelligent one. 😛

But, Dear Elizabeth, just take your time to grow cause mummy enjoy every moment of your growing time. In fact, no matter how old are you, you are always my little girl. :)

And, I would like to pass this on to:

2) Chinnee
