PRACTICAL LIFE – Cutting/Snipping Activity

Checklist is a great way to record the progress of a child’s activities at an interval period of time.

It is regularly used in school. I also use it to record my mum’s progress or digress. It is important to be aware of the needs of senior citizen so that lessons can be developed, in particularly with activities to strengthen the hand muscle and eye-hand coordination.

It is important to remember that we record a child or a senior citizen’s achievements, not their failure to do something.

And sometimes lessons need to be tweaked a bit to suit a certain criteria in their development.

For example, my mum can snip real well along a  given line. However she finds it difficult to stop midway as per instruction. Instead of using words to ask her to ‘STOP’, just make a large dot on the finishing line.

Take note to use black colour pencil to draw the line on a drawing paper material.

What does LOVE mean?

A group of professionals asked a group of children aged 4-8 the above question, and the answers were deep and meaningful than one can ever imagined.

You can read more about it at https://m.dailygood.org/story/158/what-does-love-mean-see-how-4-8-year-old-kids-describe-love-ladan-lashkari/

For me, the answer to the question is in this picture.

My mum, battling with depression and not able to cook for more than two decades, helping me to stir. I only have childhood memories of her delicious food.

What is your definition of LOVE? Please share in the comment.

与孩子临在 Be present with the children

🌺 【临在与释放】网课平台🌺
第四系列/【临在与释放】

经常与你孩子临在,久而久之他们就会发现你其实真的在乎关心他们,你有在聆听他们。然后你们才会有机会真实地分享自己的想法和情绪,真正地去聆听彼此。一段功能良好的关系指的是你可以在他人面前诚实地表达自己,不必假装或隐藏自己,也意味着我们不会指责对方,为我们自己的情绪负责,而且不带埋怨地对自己的念头和感受负责任。

对于如何理解与自己孩子关系的业报,可能不是我们可以理解的,我们也理解不了,也没有必要去理解。它是怎样就是怎样的。

Rambling About Writing.

Today, I sit here and check my old Yahoo inbox messages.

Nine years ago, I started to follow this local Malaysian traveller’s blog. He has a Facebook now, still travelling and giving photoediting workshops. But his blog stopped at posts of 2017. I can still follow him on FB , but I miss the days of writing and reading blogs. I guess he has the same issue too. FB can reach out too many people obviously with just an image and a one line post.

I miss writing . I miss the simple writing routine of putting my thoughts on a space, and not to be bothered by how many old or new followers are trolling, drooling or loving my post. I just write and get on with my own life.

As I sit here typing, after watching ‘Ta-Nehisi Coates on Creative Breakthroughs’, there seems to be only one way to keep writing – Perseverance. Write,, put it aside, revise over and over and over and over again…

I don’t and I can’t write to become an influencer or hoping to have a line of followers. I clash with Google Analytics.

I write not hoping for a breakthrough. If it comes, great; if it doesn’t, I don’t have to hang my head and declare defeat. I write another word the next time or the next day.

So 15/6/2022, here I am again on writing. Write to tell what I know or don’t know Write to share my knowledge. Write to the Creator’s content. Write to leave some trace in this beautiful world.

* You can watch Ta-Nehisi Coates, a writer from The Atlantic, offers his advice to new writers, or even rusty old writers, here:
