How much times do you spend with your children? Have you thought about that? A recent
studies shows that parents are actually finding more time for their kids these days,
despite growing number of moms and dads in the workforce.
For moms, 48% spends all day and every day with their children (this should stay-at-home mom), while 36% see their children
every morning and every evening (I believe this should be working mom). For dads, 5% spends all day,
every day with their children (stay-at-home dad), while 73% see their children every
morning and every evening (obviously, they are more dads out there working). Interestingly,
8% of dads responded that it's been days since they've seen their kids …8-), while 0%
reported for moms.
By showing you these figures, I'm not out here to criticize working moms or stay-at-home
moms and I hope you don't too. I just want you to think about how
much times have you spent with your children and try to highlight the important of balancing
between family and work. We all know that it is challenging these days to find more times with our children.
So no matter what, please make sure you don't fall into the category of
"it's have been
days since I've seen my kids". Here is a great quote about life:
"No other success in life can compensate for failure in the home." -- David O. McKay

way to be smart
TheStart Online July 8, 2004
Intelligence is not fixed but is something we can develop. All of us can be smarter in the
eight different types of intelligence, says Dr Spencer Kagan, an internationally acclaimed

"The more we use any intelligence, the stronger it gets. There's something called brain
plasticity; the more we use our brain, the more we develop it," says Dr Kagan, 60.
