Hi Ziyad,

Good to be connecting with a friend and colleague...I recon that you are happy and doing well there in Australia. Our regards to your wife. I know you guys have gone thru a lot of changes ... good and maybe not so good ... but just as well - being together with a loved one and going thru those changes and challenges make it more memorable and interesting. Just like the song..."The Power of Two!"

Do keep in touch - my family and I are planning to visit Australia in 2010. Will hook up if and when ...

Stay genuine and talented!

Hello CJ,

Long time since I have heard from you. I trust you and your family in great health and happy as always. I was surprised from this site from the first site, yet excited to keep in touch. I loved the idea of this site, fascinating and inspiring. It is a visionary journey through a window to your life. I am enjoying my time here in Australia perusing education far a way from home in a western county. I just felt how much it takes to be far away from home and family, enduring different life style, communicating with different types of minds, and finding it difficult sometimes to find friends around. However, it is a lovely experience and I am sure it will change my life for good.

Best regards,

Hi Glyn, good hearing from you and congratulations (not for being unemployed) but for being a responsible mother to your child...your boy is at a significant age where parents should really come in. Children ages 4-11 is the age group that needs focus and attention. Whatever goes on the life of any child between this age determines what kind of personality and character he will have and will strongly affect the kind of teenager and adult he will become. Even if they dont remember or recall their experiences in this period, the emotions they felt and the lessons they learned are strongly retained in their subconcious and the neural pathways of their brains. As much as we would want to keep them in our wings, we should likewise learn how to assist them in their flight. Kids at this age now are learning and enjoying some sense of independence. While we see them as still frail and fully dependent on us parents, learn how to supervise from a distance so they can grow confidence when they accomplish a task. Do not underestimate their competence - they can do more, you will be surprised! In fact this is a good age for them to learn basic chores, (i.e. making their bed, help fix the dining table before a meal etc) because they are eager to learn - just make sure you give them the necessary recognition so that their self esteem gets a boost as well.

Thanks for dropping by and best regards

hi sir cj, mam azel...parenting is my main job now for a 6 yrs old boy. It is a 24hrs job, no day off and no holidays but the package is extremely uncomparable. A hug and a kiss at the end of day from my son ease all my stress. Knowing all his ups and downs on his way to the road of LIFE makes me feel dizzy coz the feeling of excitement, proudness and fear linger like feather in my mind. But that is parenting is. I brought him to life to give me happiness so it is my responsibility to give him everything he needed in able to cope in this world and most especially I"VE GOT TO BE THERE FOR HIM ALL THE TIME.

Sir Cj thanks for your very meaningful site. MAkes me realize what my life purpose is. Eventhough I'm jobless for a year now, I know I have more tasks to do in my family.

GOD Bless.
