Where is my 5-year old?

Hi Parents
Tonight, would like to jolt your memory back to the time when you were a 5-year old kid. What was it like?

Well, as far as I can remember, my 5-year old had been a care-free one. No school yet, all I did with my siblings and neighbours was eat, play and sleep. Although there was no computer, we had fun doing things like:
  • playing marbles
  • throwing 5 stones
  • jumping the BIG balloon
  • rope skipping
  • playing catching
  • watching TV (black and white) in neighbour's house
  • blowing soap bubbles
  • tapping paper balloon
In Singapore, working life can be rather stressful. But no matter how old we are, there is always a child inside us. Should you feel very tense on certain days, why not go to a nearest playground and sit down. Just watch the children play. If you want to join in the fun, go ahead. Or, just be a 5-year for a day and do what you want to do as a 5-year old.

This is one good way to de-stress. Try it and you will be amazed that you find joy again.
