Parenting experts sharing their experiences with the bloggers.
Oreo has invited three childhood parenting experts to share their opinions with the parent bloggers on how to promote family bonding in our busy working life in Singapore. Among some of the tips we learned were:
1. It is not the quantity but quality of bonding time that is important. Bonding with your child could be as simple as listening to the same music and talking about it after that, going for a short cycling session or playing games together.
2. Let your child set his own time table instead of setting the time table for them. For example, you could tell your child on a normal school day, he needs to finish his home work and also complete his reading and then he could have an hour of watching TV or playing computer games. Then, let him decides what time he wants to do his home work and what time he wants to have his free time to watch TV or play computer games. By letting him set his own schedule, he will be empowered to complete the tasks better.
3. Let your child have enough play activities and not focus too much on his academic studies. Through play, children learn to relax and able to tackle more complicated tasks in their lives.
