Showing Love and Respect for others

"The most important work you will ever do is within the walls of your own home!" - David O. McKay

Many people ask me how I manage 4 children and stay in workforce for so long, especially in Singapore context.

Well, showing love and respect for each other is very important. From young, I ENCOURAGE my children to:

E njoy doing chores for the family such as cooking and housework
N ote each other's likes and dislikes
C are for the younger ones and teach them when they are in doubt
O wn up wrong-doings such as telling the truth and face the consequence
U se appropriate decision-making skills
R ecognise that everyone needs privacy at times
A void criticism and name callings
G reet
their elders, be it at home or when they make visits to their homes
E xchange ideas when doing projects

Hope parents will find the above tips useful. As the saying goes, it is up to us as parents to teach important values such as love and respect to our family.
