I have to admit that when I saw her blog address underneath her own comments, I actually gave it a once over. But after reading several more of the comments below hers, the one person who gave a thumbs-up toThe Good Chinese Mother’s site provoked my curiosity.
I went on to kaypo on her site, and found her style of writing quite appealing. There is this sense of honesty, so down to earth and oh-so-earnest kind of feeling to it. It was written with so much love, respect and a holy sort of gentleness only experienced mothers would have. She’s got a very interesting background too!
Reading on, 2 particular posts had me almost teary eyed. Despite the lump in my throat, I ended the read with a smile on my face. I like her parenting style, and deep inside, I wish I could apply her wisdom to Spud later on in life. From her 2 essays on “Do I have to take a bath” and “Why do I have to go to bed now?”, she struck me as someone with the patience of a saint…
So much to learn, and this is one site which has some practical, tried and tested advice which I find extremely useful for our later years in parenting.
I know I just need to work on that thing called patience a little bit more.
