I want to ask you something. What does family mean to you? Is it only about children and parents? How about house, food, nursery, diapers, milk and etc? This list was on my mind when people asked me about getting married and having a family.
I remembered a friend once told me that when you have children, your problem/tiredness will be gone for a while when a cute face is waiting at the door calling your name with a bright smile when you come home.
At first I was sceptical, I was asking myself, “really? Are you sure?” haha until Damia was born on 9 Nov 2007. Those sparkling eyes, always calling “atte tahh” and smiling without teeth make my life totally different now. I don’t even bother about the list anymore. What list? 🙂
Family is my top priority now. When Damia accidentally fell from a swing, I hugged my wife and Damia and told my wife, Damia is not only our daughter but our life. I just can’t imagine life without her. She brings a lot of joy to me and my wife.
In conjunction with Nuffnang Friso Family Day Out, Nuffnang wants to know why Family day is important to my daughter. If I can, I want to spend every second with her and watch her grow. Why family day is important?
Build Up Confidence
I believe by spending more time with Damia, she can build up her confidence since she needs a lot of support to walk by herself. She is one year now but still using the walker or sofa to walk.
Hopefully by having a special day for her, she will gain more confidence and not be afraid to walk. Malaysia Boleh Damia pun boleh!
Research shows that families that spend time together are less likely to have teens that use illegal drugs or drink or get into trouble.
Improve her Brain Development
At this stage, it is important communicate with Damia to stimulate her brain cells/neurons. Input as much knowledge as I can. The earlier the brain cells or neurons are stimulated, the more synapses (connection of one neuron to another) are created. It is the early neural synapses that make us remember, learn, talk, think, count, and create better.
By having a Family Day sponsored by Friso I can gain a lot of new input and get to know new parent @ blogger. We can share and exchange our tips and experience especially for first time parent. Nowadays we are facing a lot of challenges from the outside world, online and offline. So its crucial for us parents, to equip ourselves with parenting knowledge.
