Dear Mom and Dad,

 
At last on my 15th birthday, I have an iPad! The MoneyMaze Cube Puzzle you gave along with the iPad made me realize it wasn’t so bad growing up without the constant influence of technology.

When I was 5, I had beautiful memories of our family flying the kite in the park. On my 10th birthday, the Rubik’s cube you gifted me developed my love for puzzles, escape rooms and other mind-stimulating activities.

Now that I’m in highschool, you’re probably worried if I belong, get cyber-bullied or succumbing to peer pressure. I’m aware kids my age are infamous for...

Traditional toys are making a comeback. Sales reports reveal how there’s an increasing number of sales for traditional educational toys. Parents now prefer giving their children traditional toys, particularly educational games such as puzzles, mazes, cubes, over their electronic counterparts.

However, there is still a continued debate on whether or not educational games can ever be as fun and enjoyable to play for children as other forms of toys or if it really imposes learning as to what it claims to do.

The answer is: it depends on the parents and whoever the children plays the toys with. This is where parent/s' interaction plays a crucial role. Interaction with parents makes learning more effective for children.

Toys are merely instruments that improve the bond between the parents and their children. Fun is gained when you have a good game or activity to pair the toy with. So regardless if the toy is meant for educational purposes or pure pleasure, its efficiency in laying out its purpose would depend on the activity and the person the child is playing it with.

Recent study from Oxford University reveals that a dad's emotional attachment and strong bond with his child has the most significant effect on a child’s behavior. Children of emotionally-involved fathers are almost 28% less likely to suffer from behavioral problems in their teens.

The study also showed that fathers who consistently gave emotional support to the mothers also influenced their children's positive behavior. Dads who are more confident with their parenting skills also tend to have a stronger connection with their family.

According to Maggie Redshaw, Ph.D., developmental and health psychologist at Oxford and co-author of research, "It is the emotional connection and the emotional response to actually being a parent that matters enormously in relation to later outcomes for children.”

The study is based on a sample size of almost 10,500 kids between 8 to 10 years old who were living with both their parents. The parents answered a questionnaire about their and their child’s mental health, their attitudes to parenting, time spent on childcare, and child behavior and development.

Being a mom is already a tough job. However, we have to take time to commend women who choose to multitask: be a mother, a wife, and be on top of their careers. 

While being a mom is already fulfilling, the feeling of self fulfillment of excelling in your chosen career or pursuing your passion through business can also give one the same high as the fulfillment of becoming a mother.

The question is, “How do they do it?”

Most mothers fear that they might end up having less time for their children and family if they pursue their passion. Fear is normal. It is normal to feel threatened especially if it’s your family that’s on the line. However, this is where you will be tested.

You owe it to yourself to explore how strong and courageous you can be. If you don’t feel scared, then you have to dream bigger.

Before reading through this article, take your time to sit down and analyze your child’s behavior. Can you tell what kind of a thinker he is? Does he believe everything he reads or sees on TV? Does he always figure out how to get what he wants?
