Picking up habits

To built a good habits should start early on when our lil one are young .
Parenting is very challenge especially for the first time parents.
It is very important to teach a child good habits in order to make it easier
for us as parents as well for the child.
It can be overwhelming and frustrating at times… i experience this every time .
but teaching children good habits at a young age in the end can be extremely
rewarding and will definitely help them in the future.

We been practicing this few good habits with Jeremy months ago beside reading .
1st : Save moneyI didn’t really talking and teaching about $$ to Jeremy,
Properly he doesn’t know what is the important of money at this age.
But i think is good for him to picking up this saving habit .
The earlier your kids start developing a habit of saving , the better.
Sooner or later he will know the “important” of $$$$$$ … πŸ™‚

2nd : Motivating to pick up / tidyingThis habit is tough to pick up and it’s really really take time.
BUT is very helpful once they know !!
Kids aren’t neat and tidy naturally, they need direction and guidance from parents.
At first we parents need to involved and work together,
it go faster in this way …. they do like co-operate and work together .
We always practice this , ask him to clean up and picking up all the toys
before going on to any new activity.
So, i prepared few clear plastic container (pictures shown above) .
Slowly after few months of picking up .. this become one of the habits … yay…..
It’s work !! It’s work !!

Now .. BAD habit
Jeremy had a BAD habits which is “throwing anythings”
No matters what, he just love throwing things especially he get mad !!
He would throw toys, food, clothes, the remote, the telephone, etc. etc etc
Whenever he throws something, we assist him in picking it up,
but sometime it doesn’t listen to us and he even picking up the things and throw again 😦
We are in the process of teaching him NOT to throw things .

That one day, he was having my 2 foundation powder .
I was abit worry … cos once he throw… it’s broke.
So i quickly hold and ask him to give me back …
then he just get mad and throw them on the floor …..
The more i worry and “kan cheong” the more it’s happened !!
Cos this 2 compact powder was just newly bought ..
yuhuhuhu… RM300 + gone !!!
Still can used la… but not nice already lo …….

    I think Elizabeth is quite neat in nature. She will mess things up of course. But, she is automatically out them back too. Most but not all the time. hehe…

    However, I think Liz already understand what’s money for. But, she will want to take them out immediately after the coin drop into the saving box. Hahaha…

    By the way, so sorry to what happened to your expensive powder. 😦 Cane! Cane! Jeremy!

    Yeah, i agree that good habits are hard to cultivate in young children … but once cultivated…its for life! And make them better individuals.

    Ryan also same same. Likes to throw his cars. My mouth already dry from yelling at him whenever he throws them. But as he gets older, he seems to get the message. He will tell me “Cannot throw-ah!”! So sayang your compact. I will be so upset! You are very calm!

    Thanks for exchanging links ! πŸ™‚

    Sometimes kids is just like to play opposite game with us… When we ask them surrender something, they will throw instead of give us back…

    It’s vy good to cultivate such good habits from young. It’s rather difficult to train my boy to keep his toys. He jes doesn’t listen. N he likes to throw things too. Aiyo… so sayang lah ur foundation powder. But luckily can still be used.

  8. Pet Says:

    Oh dear…I will be quite mad if that happen (the foundation breaking). My daughter also loves to throw stuff, and she is very fast… things that she has thrown –> eggs, hp and remote into the aquarium which had to use hair dryer to dry the internal circuitry – works back!, her plastic bowl used for eating, her bottle, lots more…

    Now less since she is much bigger except when she is throwing a tantrum. 😦
