A Malaysian sharing his thoughts with the world...
dear pak idrus ,I had more or less finish reading your past entries.I'm impressed,congratulation to you on your success in educating your children.You must be proud of having 3 doctor in your family,you had also led a very colourful life.May i know the secret of your success on how you educate and disciplined your kids.My daughter is only 4 month old and it's a trial and error for me on educating my kids.
Hi Pak Idrus,Thanks so much for this kind gesture. You are so right a little help does go a long way.Thumbs up to your for being active in blogging still. We miss your presence on Facebook.I wish to say something to xplorer. Xplorer, I hope Pak Idrus will give you tips here as a blog so all of us will benefit from his wisdom.I have met Pak Idrus on a few bloggers meet before. From my observations Pak Idrus has been successful with his family because he is a big hearted, open minded person. I believe he is more as friends to his children than a mere strict father. That friendship he nurtures with his kids must be the magic formula. Kudos to you Pak Idrus.
Xplorer, thanks for the visit and the good words on me. Well to tell you the truth there are no magic formula in parenting. From the beginning we, that is my spouse and I decided to give education our priority. Education is actually the basis of any development of the kids. I meant education not indoctrination. It start with the home and here where the mother play a very important role because kids are more close to the mother then the father at an early age, so do not allow the maid to play the role of the mother. Love is a very important ingredient to the success of the kids and they do need plenty of it all the time and Love could only be given by both parent and not anyone else especially the maid. By education it is not only going to school but the in home education is very important indeed. That is why I would advice folks not to send their kids to live in hostel. Of course kids would love to go the hostel but as for me I never allow my kids to attend boarding school, the school near one's home is the best place. And because the need to excel in school subjects we have to send them to tuition class all the years. As they grow up take them out to dinner from time to time so that they are exposed to fine living and they would eventually want to have a better quality of life for them later on. Explain to them that to be successful one need to get a better education and only with good education one would be successful. Only successful folks could afford a better quality of life.Another important things is that kids should start mixing with the kids of other races at an early age, for this I would suggest you send you kid to a English medium Kindergarten where they would learn the English language early and at the same time learn to understand others culture. Well, I guessed that would do for the time being. Have a nice day and take care.
ruby ahmad, thanks for the visit and the good words on me. I am indeed flattered. Your sincere thoughts is much appreciated.Well, we as parents always want the best for our kids and as I have narrated to Xplorer there are no magic formula toward that. Anyway as parent knows that the one ingredient to success is Love and no one could give that except the both parents. I hope to see more of you in blogsphere. Have a nice day and take care
