Kids do what they hear and see

09 March 2012, 22:19

This goes out to everyone who has a child at a day school. I have a four year old and a three year old, both at a day school. The things they come home with are scary!

Now, I don't count myself an Angel. I also swear, a lot actually.

One afternoon, when I went to go pick up my children, I saw my four year old wasn't well. I asked him what was wrong. He replied by saying that the one kid in school said he is going to kill my son!! A mean that child is four and he scared the living daylights out of my son. Apparantly this child swears at the teachers, hits the little girls and doesn't listen to anything they say.

Now, this might be a problem manifesting from somewhere else, but something has to be done to keep toddlers from being exposed from violence.

Some childrens stories on tv, even those the grown-ups watch can do harm to these little people. If your child is 10 and a rated 13 program comes up you should change the chanel or ask your child to leave the room. Children are extremely vulnerable, they believe almost anything. This can be dangerous. Like with this 4 year old, if he at this age starts acting out violently he will be very troubled when older.

Just be careful of the environment your children are raised in. This will determine their future.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...

We all know what do when we cut or scratch ourselves, right? Our first response, without even thinking about it, is to go for the medicine cabinet – grabbing the antiseptic ointment and a plaster or two.  Read more...
