It would be a busy busy time during Chinese New Year for me and my family as we celebrate the year of the Horse together. I just want to take this opportunity to wish all my readers, my clients and the parents out there a blessed, wonderful and prosperous Chinese New Year.
I told my kids that it’s important to spend time and absorb the wonderful moments and memories of CNY with your family and loved ones and not just be absorbed in their world of gadgets. Otherwise, when they grow up, they won’t remember much about the quality time that they spent during CNY but rather just the memories of playing Temple Run, Clumsy Ninja or even Angry Birds.
I know it’s much easier for us parents to use gadgets to entertain our children and to get them occupied. But I urge you as parents to find the time to spend time with them and perhaps play some board games with them during CNY – memories of shared fun and laughter will linger on and will be cherished even more as they grow up.
