Sunday Citar




Too often we give our children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
-Roger Lewin







Princess had a few problems. She could not reach a toy. And she wanted so hard to get up into this chair. I could have been the kind of mom who passed her the toy or lifted her up into the chair. But I didnt. I let her figure it out herself.


Call me mean.
Call me lazy.

Or call me a mom who wants her children to figure things out themselves and not always depend on others.

Yes, she is only 14 months old.

So I am starting early.
