I have read a lot of parenting books and articles. Right now, this book is the one that I am reading and loving!! I think kids should enjoy their childhood and be free to explore and develop on their own. Boredom and frustration can be good for them. I am not pushing my kids to be super achievers or to read by the age of 3. Of course I want my kids to be successful, but most of all I want them to be secure, independent and happy.
It's been awhile. Again. Life sure is busy and I rarely get to my desk top anymore. Anyway, we went to Honolulu in March. It was the first time for Emmi and the third time for the boys. We had a fantastic time. The weather was great and the kids did well on the flights.
