Do you also need to know these??? OR you are so blessed that it never crossed your mind to even think about knowing these???
Things had gotten bad lately. As much as i am glad that the boys are growing healthily & cheekily, i was actually quite upset with their behavioural growth !!! ya... i know i know... the myth was : parents are "the one" to be blamed for any misconduct of the children !! But it sincerely wasn't our wish to mould them in such a way!! As i've mentioned over & over again, they fought a lot....just over anything under the sun! The fight now no longer stays physically but already extended to verbal. They will just retaliate to any sentences that do not sing the same tune as theirs!! No matter how 'nice' we tried to talk/advice, it just gets so hard for them to listen and both of us, having short & hot temper would end up raising our voice. Obviously they picked this up too, .... much to our dissapointment!! Dady has especially been in deep upset not understanding why his boys are so naughty. Being not a very good 'tutor' himself, most of the time he resorted to the 'hard' way.... i.e. the 'wrong' way in response to the boys' untolerables!! The worst part was, huby did not realised the root of the problems! Despite a heart-to-heart talk, how could i expect a character change to a person who has it carried in him for the past 40 years!!! It's near impossible, i would say. Now that i realised the fact, i will just have to pick up the 'guidance' role to not just the boys, but also the 'old man' (he might be old in age but definitely young with parenting skills)!!
This afternoon, we brought the boys to a bookstore for some reading. And my eyes got caught up with that book & instantly i picked it up without any hesitation as i believe it is still not late for remedies...... I must admit that both huby & I are not born with 'PATIENCE'.... in fact, seriously lack of it. Obviously without this imperative criteria, it's tough to be 'good' parents!! I'm in crucial need of a 'brain-wash' so i'm hoping that this book will give me some tips to improve..... yes, just improve, not that i want to be any expert !!!
Together, we STRIVE to be better parents !!!
On a separate topic, while my mind was bothered with these parenting matters, my dear huby picked up another book for me!! Guess what it is...........??

As he recently saw me getting much addicted with this bento stuffs (including making sushi), he thought this basic book about sushi would certainly helps !!! I think he was right, after quickly browsing thru the index, there were many basic tips about sushi that i was not aware of. Since it costs only RM14... no harm getting it !!
