The Bliss That Babies Bring

My niece, Chloe, has brought equilibrium in the family. Dad used to be hard-headed that he comes late after work, but when Chloe arrived, he always bring something for her, and arrives at 7 p.m. Family dinner is always a delight. Our house helper would always cook hearty meals. Chloe could now eat what we do and she has her own red plate. No, you cannot take that away from her or else she would show you her sad eyes.

Praise for Parents

Parenting advice usually focuses on the challenges parents face, mistakes to avoid and effective skills we can use. But every parent and parenting "partner" deserves a pat on the back for doing something positive, even on a small scale, that means a lot to a child. I want to make sure we do that here, now and then.
