    • Roles Playing Fun

      Yesterday before bed, I had a fun time with my children. We switched roles, pretending to be each other:

      Timothy, the mummy:
      Faster go brush your teeth now or I get the “sar tan” (aka cane)

      Emily, the Timothy: It is Transformers, not transform us. *with angry expression*

      Mummy, the Emily: Don’t touch me, go away. *whining sound*

      I shall go no further otherwise all our secrets will get out.

      We had a good laugh. We also acted out how the other person actions. It is really a good way to see ourselves in their eyes and let them see themselves too. You can try it at home with older kids.

      I created a way to discipline my children by themselves. I told them during Christmas each will receive a present. The size of the present will depends on how good they are. When they are naughty, don’t listen to me or disobedient, I will start to put 2 hands apart and shrink, saying your present is getting smaller..*tit* *tit* *tit*. Instantly they will obey or listen.

      Of coz, when they are good by doing things on their own, I will say “your present is growing bigger, bigger, bigger….oooh mummy cannot carry”. They will be very happy and excited. Emily would say, “Quick ask papa to carry!” Let’s hope this will lasts till Christmas.
