My Sinchew/ Family

Cornerstone of a healthy marriage: communication

When my husband and I were dating, we could talk for hours about anything and everything. Now that we're married, we go out to dinner and have nothing to say to each other. What has gone wrong? Now he just keeps his thoughts to himself.


Raising my child as a single parent

What encouragement can you offer to those of us who are single parents? Each day seems more difficult than the one before it. Can you help plead our case to those who don't understand what we're facing?


Beyond adolescence

My sister's daughter went off to college at 18 and immediately went a little crazy. She had always been a good kid, but when she was on her own, she drank like a fish, was sexually promiscuous, and failed three of her classes.


Infidelity in a marriage

Do you feel that there is a kind of "blindness" that can occur when a victim of an affair denies the truth?


Cultivating good behavior

Children can learn very early in life about rewards and punishment and they also can be taught acceptable and non-acceptable behavior. The earlier we teach them, the less pain and embarrassment they are likely to cause us as parents and themselves as persons.


Cultivating respect

Showing respect towards elders is a much valued virtue in our society.


Every action has its own consequences

As parents, we have the task of teaching our children responsibility and it is often equated with duty or obligations, reliability and dependability, or just "getting the job done."


Disciplining children (Part 2)

The term discipline is often associated with punishment. Punishment may suggest inflicting a penalty for an offence, while discipline aims to train a child for correction and maturity.


Disciplining children

During a recent children's camp, children were asked to provide their opinions on discipline. A large majority of the children gave a negative response. Some commented that their parents discipline them for anything and everything, and others wished their parents would not enforce rules and regulations.


Attention deficit disorder in children

An ADD/ADHD child can pose a big challenge to his parents. Since he is very easily distracted, he needs help to cope with schoolwork. Mother's patience may wear thin because his hyperactivity constantly gets him into trouble.
