My Sinchew/ Family

Living with a teenager

One day we will wake up and ask--where has my darling little son (or daughter) disappeared to? It seemed like only yesterday when we "ran" their lives.


Communication in marriage

Good communication is the cornerstone of a healthy marriage relationship. Unfortunately it is often the most troublesome aspect in a marriage. When a couple is courting they never seem to have any trouble talking to and understanding each other however many couples report that once they get married good communication is the first to go.


Cultivating good attitude

Remember the nursery rhyme about the little girl who had a little curl? It goes like this, "There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. And when she was good, she was very very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid."


Mother-daughter relationships

Like all relationships, how we perceive ourselves as mothers or daughters is central to resolving problems related to the relationship. A basic understanding of the purpose and role of women in life is also important in a world that is fraught with gender issues. We need to see and understand who we really are and why we are here on earth.


Nature Vs nurture

Educators, sociologist and psychologists have debated this topic for decades with varying results. Most parents today are convinced that if they provide as many opportunities as possible for the child, they have done their duty and their children are destined to become “success stories”. But this may not be as simple as it seems.


Disciplining of children

Parenthood is costly and complex and we don't go through a 4-year full time course to obtain a degree in Parenting. Yet, it is a lifelong commitment from the moment our child is conceived. We first enter parenthood without any experience and can only seek the advice of our friends and relatives.


Healthy relationship built on principles of tough love

Here are some words of wisdom from Dr James Dobson on tough love for singles during the courtship period.


Consecrate time with family

The Oxford Dictionary defines the word Consecrate as 'devote as sacred' and rightly so. We need to devote as sacred time with our family. Often time, due to our commitments, time with our family is being compromised.


Children's health and well-being

It's easier to measure the physical well-being of a child than his psychological or emotional well-being. There are weight and height charts for us parents to gauge how our child fare compared to the average child. There are milestones of development indicating that our child is more or less on track. These are generally objective measurements. We know our infant is doing fine as long as he grows into a toddler who can walk and talk, and is gaining weight and height.


Disciplining the pre-school child

Methods and philosophies of discipline have been the subject of discussions and debates through the years. Psychologists and paediatricians have been providing suggestions and expertise; often contradicting one another.
