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. Last night, my brother Mike told me he will buy term papers but had to take Chloe first for a walk. It was only my mother who refuses to spoil her. She would ask Chloe to arrange her own toys, properly sit on the toilet, and not play too much with the dogs. I understand that mom wants my niece to be responsible at an early age. We just can't help but pamper her sometimes because she is such a darling to everyone. But, learning from mom, we should know the limits and boundaries that come with rearing a child.
