TT; ” I love my Piapia (special name for his daddy)
My kids have a very good bounding with their father. I am glad that their father is willing to spend time to play with kids before they go to bed. Every day 🙂
On kids’ birthday he will take leave and we will spend time together going somewhere to celebrate kids’ birthday.
On TT’s birthday, last month, we spent time together at the Singapore Zoo. Kids are very happy, and they even rode the elephant for the first time. They love to see the map.. They think it is an adventure time. They will spend time to read the map with their daddy and will decide together which animal they plan to see next.
My kids should be grateful having Mr. Papa as their daddy. Not all daddy are willing to spend time with their kids on weekdays because some of them are very busy with their jobs. I believe that some of them also really want to spend time with their family, but they have no choice because they have to work hard for their families.
Mr. Papa will also spend his time every night with kids at home. Play with them, read the story for them, create his own story and sometime will ask the kids to sing the songs for him and will make it as it is on the show.
Mr. Papa will also spend sometime to having lunch with us, and will have a short walk with us before he come back to his office.
Fathers have a very important role in our kids’ growth, especially in their character’s growth. Kids will see how father love their mother. They will learn from their father. Yes our kids really need their father as their figure in their lives.
Most of kids want to become THE WINNER. Of course JJ and TT always want to become the winner.
Last time JJ cannot accept if he lose from his brother. He has learnt a lot since he has his little brother. Now he learns to accept when he lost. And his daddy always remind him with this word “Learn from your failures”.
Now that whenever TT fails on doing something JJ will say “Learn from your failures”. But it is not easy for TT to accept, and he always says that he wants to be the winner. I explained to TT that all of us will not always be the winner. Sometime we can be failed but at least we had tried our best and should never give up when we fail. I told him about how I lost from the singing competition when I was on the Primary school. JJ started to remind TT that when they played basketball, JJ lost and TT won the game, but JJ was ok and accepted it.
I think it will need sometime for TT to accept that all people will not always be the winner. It also happened to JJ last time. But JJ can accept that he will not always be the winner and he should learn from his failures. Never give up.
Especially, we as a parent, we should not push our kids to always become the winner. Just precaution that we might make them stress when they fail or cannot fulfill our wishes and their own wishes. Let our kids know that winning is not everything, but what they can learn from their failures is more important.
LEARN FROM YOUR FAILURES… Now become a popular word among my kids.
But I know that some parents may have different way of thinking… Please do share with us 🙂
