  • Empowered Kids Corner: Aspiring Chef

    thumbnail

    Unexpectedly my daughter, Summer, is very much interested in cooking and baking. My husband and I are hardly the average cooks. But boy how we love food. Anyway, there are times when we cook something  that we learned from our parents, but nothing fancy.  It is something for our family to consume. It isn’t worth bragging about to friends on get-together or worth sharing to my readers.   The same goes to our kitchen.  If I am to describe it, […]

  • High-Delay Children: Challenge Result

    thumbnail

    Previously I made a post about delayed gratification challenge my husband and I gave our kids.  I am happy to say that they were able to wait for 5 days, and of course we kept our part of the bargain.  So on Songkran Festival Day (13th April), the kids woke up early and excited. Eating breakfast miraculously went without qualms and complains. Putting on their attire for the day and wearing sun screen went smooth, no shouting and no resistance. Getting […]

  • Make your home safe for your kids

    thumbnail

    Children are naturally curious and resourceful. You’ll never know what they will do, touch, or tinker next. They can’t help it. Jumping from one chair to another, rolling in the mud, getting dirty, playing with their saliva, sticking objects into electrical sockets, swinging on doorknobs or cupboard doors, are their kind of things. Babies and children assimilate information from the world around them through these. Call it ironic, ridiculous but this is how they learn. It wouldn’t be beneficial in the […]

  • Introducing the NEW Educents Marketplace

    thumbnail

    Introducing the NEW Educents Marketplace I just received an email from the founders of Educents, Kate and Kaitlyn, with some really exciting news. Until today, Educents was a website for parents and educators to take advantage of daily deals. But those deals expired… And there were only 50 deals available at once… I wanted saving money to be even EASIER. Kate and Kaitlyn agreed. So they created the new Educents Marketplace. It’s even easier to discover affordable educational resources that […]

  • Improve Spoken English through English Conversation Strategies

    thumbnail

    For ESL students who have less to zero exposure to English, teachers have to create an environment where they can practice as much as they can and overtly teach the strategies which native English  speakers would acquire naturally growing up. So it is important to be conscious about these conversation strategies. Wh-and-H questions are one of the basic ways we use in a conversation like Who?, What?, Why?, Where?, and How?. Aside from these though, there are several Conversation Strategies where […]
