Annual Problem for our Generation?

Ever since the start of the school break, which in my case started a week earlier than the official date, I have had mothers asking me, "How do you keep your kids busy and occupied for the school break and still remain sane?" Well the answer is simple. NOTHING!
Honestly, kids are kids, and they have the world's best imaginative brain most adults only can dream of having once again, or ever. Many psychologist have ruled out the fact that kids need immense entertaining to get through the day, when actually they don't and it's us adult who psycho too much thinking our kids are dead bored just being home. Well the truth of the matter is, they aren't! It's us who are getting bored for them which seriously is a complete waste of time.
While some mothers think they need to take their kids out every day of the holidays, there are some who forget its a holiday and drill their kids with loads of homework. Some forbid their own kids to play in the comfort of their own home, all because they are too "BUSY" to clean the mess after. There are also those who compete with other mothers around them, as to see who's doing more with their kids, as if there's a pot of gold waiting for them once school reopens. Immaculately, there are also those who just wake up in the morning, and decide as the hour comes what shall be done, and get on doing it, rather than being NATO (No ACTION TALK ONLY) sorta person and that's ME! Well I'm sure there are many out there just like me, but hey this is my blog so note the point here ok?
Anyway it's just the beginning of December and we have some what a whole month more to go, so hang in there, and just remember that the routine below
  1. Wake up in the morning
  2. Breakfast
  3. TV
  4. Play time in the room/PlayStation/Colouring a book/ Moulding play dough for a birthday party with 100pax guest.
  5. Lunch
  6. Nap/TV
  7. Tea/Milo Break
  8. Playground/Pool
  9. Shower
  10. Dinner
  11. Story book time
  12. TV
  13. BED ZzzzzzZzzzzzzZ
That alone can be a great day for a child. A day with ZERO cost, and 100% oh well may be 90% of parent children quality time. So who says it's got to be a holiday by the beach or up a Mountain? As long as you don't have CANDICE for a sister, you can do it all like Phineas and Ferb!!! Seriously when it comes to the holidays just do it the Malaysian style cause no one does it better than the Malaysians... "LEPAK AJE LA BRO!!!"
