    Reasons Why Dads Should Stick around Their Boys

    As I had to move out of town for my assignment work early in last year, my two kids (almost-12-year-old girl and almost-8-year-old boy) shown up a retention to my ‘decision’. Thankfully –as time went by, Rasha –the elder one- proved that she could get along with the situation. But Attar -her brother- didn’t walk on the same way. He kept whimpering and clinging to me more. At the outset, I didn’t take it a big deal as I thought time would eliminate his whining behavior, until I found myself mistaken. As my wife told me, I found that the absence of me had brought about behavioral degradation on my…

    Labels on Items: No Missing and Cool!

    All this time, each time my two kids asked me to mark their school equipment – or as instructed by their teachers – in order not to get missed or overlooked, I always had them marked with a board marker manually. Names of my kids written down on pencil box, tumbler, towel when swimming, and even underwear for an outbound activity. It did work. That hand-writing kept the belongings detectable and stuck around. However, it only left one thing: no aesthetics. Yes, that was just less beautiful to look. It sometimes needed some artwork touch on goods, even kids’ school equipment. That was then. It all changed as I found…

    Blessings in Our Gains

    In our daily life, we might have met a man whose small income in return for his work, but his children could reach higher education. They could afford to enroll to college. They are happy, have no debts, and really enjoy life. On the contrary, there was another man who had been knuckling down, leaving home early in the morning and returning late at night, but his life was felt far from sufficient. Debts were kept outstanding and not likely to get  paid off. Problems in life overwhelmed never-ending. Why did it happen? The first man is blessed with all he gains, while the latter the blessing in what he…

    Children’s Adversity Quotient: A Challenge to Parents

    As parents, I and my wife felt like having an instinct to help our kids out in every single thing they might do, even on their trivial workout. Many of things, like tying up shoe laces, getting dressed when about to go to school or go out at weekend, combing the hair, feeding my less-appetite boy to keep him mouthful, even bathing them from hair to toe. Being overwhelmed with those bits and pieces is all of the parents’ nature! It’s a duty, a responsibility, a requirement that we should embrace. That’s the good deed of parents. But I found an enlightenment in understanding more about my role in raising…

    Too Young for School?

    Too young and not ready yet for enrolling the Elementary School stage. That’s the fact you can find on Attar, my son. He’s now on the second stage and about to reach 7 years old while he was 5.10 when entering Elementary School. And the other fact is that he has got less satisfying results on some of his evaluative exams. Is this likely to blow my head up? Maybe. But I’d rather get my feet firm on the ground and look ahead. Some friends and relatives had warned us beforehand about the consequences of enrolling class prior to the standardised age, 7 years old of age. Quite staggering, respective…
