Reward Charts for Kids

Earlier when browsing Qoo10, I came across these reward tokens at a really reasonable price. Think it was around $5 or so and that inspired me to come out with this reward chart which was so effective with Sticky Bean. 

I've DIY'ed the reward chart using powerpoint and listed some items and activities Sticky Bean can redeem using the tokens she's earned.

For every positive behaviour such as brushing her teeth twice a day, not throwing tantrums, not pooping in the diapers, obeying our instructions etc, we will reward her with tokens.

We still need to fine tune the list of rewards though. For example, I do not want to limit trips to the playground with redemption only.

To ensure the effectiveness of this reward scheme, do try to use exclusive rewards that are redeemable only via tokens.
For example, I do not give her lollipops on a normal basis so the only way to get lollipops will be to redeem with her tokens.

Sticky Bean gets to practice counting and learns to grasp the concept of 'money' as she makes a choice to "save" the tokens for a better reward or to splurge them. She learns about opportunity cost as she decides if she wants to use the 5 tokens for a swim or to save another 5 to get a new addition to her Sylvanian Family Doll house.
It worked really well for my Sticky Bean especially when she's the stubborn kind where punishments and scoldings don't work.  She starts to initiate brushing her teeth so as to get her token.

We managed to get her to kick the habit of having to poop in diapers with this reward system in place! 
Say Yeah to our newly implemented rewards chart!

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.

We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …
