Help! My son doesn't eat fruit!

When I was little, I was forced to eat prunes everyday despite the fact that I hated them.  I had to sit and eat three prunes every morning to be "regular".  The prunes would sit and slowly dissolve in my mouth for what seemed like hours, and I would try not to gag.  Of course, I vowed never to impose foods on my own children.  Little did I know that I would face myself in spades. ...more

Introducing Kids to Classical Music

In typical Asian mom fashion, I’ve enrolled my children in both piano and violin lessons to pass on the stereotype that I had been brought up with. In my case, it has blossomed into a life-long love, where I have enjoyed both playing and listening to classical music to this day.
