Little Man Goes to School

Stolen shot of Qays carefully walking and playing during his first day school recess. Carefully as not to sweat too much or dirty his new outfit.

Mr. Independent wanted to do everything himself, including buy snack at the canteen (he initially refused to get anything, even threatening to spit out anything we give him, but big brother Husen knows better, he got Q some fried chicken ball and the kid even asked for seconds). He's also appeared very responsive in class, actively asking questions and all, quite the opposite of his old self at the kindergarten. I think he's going to do well here.

*fingers crossed that he doesn't take after you know who, her mom had to wait for her in school for three months!*

Look at that pose, ain't that's one hip kid we have there.

tough love parenting, when required

My respect goes to parents who send their problematic teenage children to the welfare department for rehabilitation when they realized that they are no longer capable of disciplining the child.

Of late we come to the realization that it's no longer just the boys who are the troublemakers, more and more of the most innocent looking young girls are proving to be the mastermind behind the 'crime'.

So peep, do accept that your sweet little angels may not be so perfect after all. And heaven forbids if things gets tough, do get proper help. Don't keep blaming yourself or others, and try to sweep it under the carpet until it's too late.

There's nothing wrong in tough love parenting, when required.
