Unless you have been with an autistic child for quite some time, it is difficult for you to understand and gain their trust. It is true that children with autism (ASD) mostly share the same pattern of behavior, and if you did your homework, you are utterly aware of it. However, I still insist that each kid is born unique in so many special ways. Hence, you may find an autistic child completely different in personality and development than the other.
With the different formula brands that the market is offering nowadays, choosing one that is perfect for your baby can be difficult and confusing, especially if it’s your firstborn. Without the expertise of an experienced parent, the choices out there may cause your stress level to rise. Rooting for a trusted brand like Similac doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy.
Well, you need to choose as well. Start by learning the difference between Similac Advance and Pro Advance as an example. You might find it surprising to know it may be what your infant needs!
A popular topic amongst my other Mummy friends is how do we fit everything in. And in particular, how do we fit the weekly cleaning in. I established a great routine because I got fed up living in chaos all week, then spending all weekend cleaning. Once I started to use a simple routine, with a little bit of cleaning every day, it helps me to keep on top of everything (most of the time!). And even with a child, crazy work schedules (even though I’m working from home), I still am able to stick to this routine.
When I started cooking for my kids, I know that I’ll be doing it forever. Why won’t I? I love the job! Knowing that their health depends on what I feed them, I make sure to give them the best nutrition there is.
Planning a well-balanced diet for everyday meals comes out as a routine for me. However, I never stopped finding ways to keep the food not only delicious but also healthier than the way it used to be. Hence, I am going to share with you some healthy cooking tips that a wise mom should know.
If you see your child getting fascinated by watching you sew, it is high time that you consider transferring your sewing skills to him/her.
However, this is not an ideal thing to do if he/she is very young. Although children can learn sewing at least from age 5, the best time to teach them is from age 6–9.
At this age, they are neither too young to master new skills nor too old to consider it as a boring thing to do.
Well, this 6 – 9 age bracket is recommended for a couple of reasons. These include:
I bet that once you go back to your usual working routine, you cannot focus entirely on knowing that you left your baby back at home. Even with the help and assurance that she is well, but still, you fear of her safety. I am aware of the countless things that I need to ensure to keep my baby’s security when I am away.
Here are a few tips I have learned and used while I was working away from home.

Amidst your busy life, can you still afford to pause for a while and spend time with your aging parents? However easy it may sound, in reality, it’s a challenge for every child. Balancing your time between your career and family needs commitment and patience.

Who can predict accidents? If only we can, then there will be no emergencies and other unfortunate events. However, keeping a well-stocked first aid kit will help to alleviate the impact of the situation. Keeping this medical box at all times is the best way to prepare for unexpected circumstances.
As a mom, I made sure in placing a first aid kit at home and in my car. I check the contents regularly to make sure it’s always ready. Here is my personal checklist of the stuff I keep in my first aid kit.
I’ll be honest to say that taking care of children with autism cannot be taken lightly. I’ve been there. I have volunteered every weekend at our Sunday school as a teacher for these precious children.
The time I spent with the kids were never dull. It was full of life and compassion. Some instances were difficult to control, but I was not alone. I admit I need all the help I can get especially from autism doctors.
