Teaching Our Children to Be Peacemakers

We should teach our children how to resolve conflicts among themselves or with their friends and other people they know. They should be the one who perform the task , not the parents.In a long run , our children will be able to face confrontation and make the correct reaction. Imagine how much better life could be for you and them.

Always let them know that "Wise-way choices are better than my-way choices"!

Enviromental Awareness

Too many natural disaster had happened. Experts said we had caused that ! Too many tree been cut down. Too much pollution , too much ignorant development . What can we do about it?

One of my tips to share is ,cut down the usage of paper. I read E-book , I reused paper . Even my daughter had a project to re-make paper at school. Now , there are even e-magazines available!

From the least we start , we will bring giant!

Water - 水

My daughter had a science project for the school that day. It was about "water"....... She found out that in a minute a dripping pipe will lost 6.6ml of water. I was shocked by the result..... It is because I was one of those never bother about dripping pipe ..........

Came across some articles about how important water to us and also report about shortage of clean water around the world. But somehow when we see a dripping pipe , it never bother us much. Most of the time , I might used 5 to 10 minutes to take a hot shower. The draining of clean water always make me feel guilty . But yet I still take my time and enjoy every shower.

I believe these happen to a lot of people. We actually concern about a lot of thing and yet we do not really put our effort to do the right thing. I am starting to off my tape properly ever since the experiment and advise my kids to do so. I hope from the smallest act I can change something which is big.

If you know about Japaneses language , you should have know that "Midori" means "Green" .Yes , color green. Green color happen to be my favorite and I really love the pronunciation ! Besides , nature is what everyone desire for...hope you do!

My unforgettable encounter with nature was my last visit to Mount Kota Kinabalu which located at Sabah. I was not planning to climb all the way to the summit but instead I took a two hours drive to the town "Ranau". I was driving up the mountain with my family of five by a SUV. It was raining all the way but fortunately the traffic was easy. There is a thermometer inside our car and we all noticed that temperature outside was dropping by every mile we drove up the mountain. And by half way up to "Ranau", we saw cloud moving around us like we were in heaven and my kids were so excited . They even reached out their hand tried to catch some cloud ! I am very sure they will never forget about this trip which actually bring us so close with the nature!

How long have you not been with the nature?Maybe take a break walk out your garden or so to appreciate the nature while we still can.
