Last week, Ethan was down with chicken pox and instead of wifey staying home to look after the children, I told her, I will do it. After all, I’ve been rather busy over the past 11 months and since things have slowed down alittle, I thought its time for me to do my bit as a father.
While the children were down with chicken pox, they remain rather active, jumping, playing and shouting around at home. I took the opportunity to do home teaching.
At the time when there is strong emphasis of home teaching and involvement of parents in the growing up years of children, I thought there is much more that I can do. One example is to spend more time with them and talk to them more to understand them better.
In my opinion, how our children grow is not determined by what is taught in school, but more importantly, everything starts from home. Its the responsibilities of the parents to determine how our children will be. And as I spend more time with my children, I started thinking of becoming a Stay Home Dad! I know that its impossible for now, but at some point in time, if its possible, I will want to be one.
