Earphones or Headphones?

28 August 2013

Whether my son is using his Kindle Fire, my netbook or iPod, he still likes to use earphones or headphones, instead of just turning on the device's build-in speaker. I am worried that he's abusing his ears by turning on the headphone's sound full blast.

I should buy a Pro-Ject Pro Audio speaker or an earphones /headphones that wouldn't destroy his eardrums even with the sound on full blast. It will all boil down to my son to be responsible in adjusting the volume that's not too loud for his ears.

Positive Parenting Style: Dolphin Parenting

03 August 2013

It takes a village to raise a child. ~African Proverb
Raising a child is not an easy task. I only have one and it has not been an easy journey for us. I am a semi-tiger mom which I also combine with other positive parenting style to balance the tiger's strictness with something that's laid back.

I read an article about this new parenting style called Dolphin Parenting. Shawn Achor, a Harvard-trained psychologist who teaches at Wharton Business School and author of The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness, said that parents should try out dolphin parenting. So why is it supposedly the parenting style that everyone should follow instead of Tiger or Helicopter Parenting?

Dolphin Parents are those who raise playful, sociable and smart kids because they're flexible, playful and kind parents.

I will stick though with my own parenting style, a combination of all the parenting styles mentioned above. My son needs the strictness that only a tiger mom can give, the playfulness of the dolphin mom and the "hovering" of the helicopter mama.
