The Strong-Willed Child

I’m currently reading Dr. James Dobson’s “The Strong-Willed Child”, a very good book on how to discipline, treat a strong-willed child. It would guide any parent, teacher, caregiver, nanny, and others on dealing with a child who is not so compliant. As described by Dr. Dobson, a strong-willed child is someone “who seems to be looking for a fight upon exit from the womb. Such a child comes into the world smoking a cigar and barking orders in the delivery room…”

Three Books for Today

I went to Cubao this afternoon thereby leaving my things to do on the side. I ran an errand for my mom. I opted to go this afternoon so that I can start my academic thingy tonight until tomorrow. Going to Cubao was quite tough for I had to walk for a couple of minutes, say 30 minutes, from the MRT station to Alimall. I am not sure if I’m exaggerating. Or maybe the right term is that I am just so darned lazy to walk. What an excuse!

Anyway, my consolation in going to Cubao is that after doing the errand, I then had the opportunity to indulge myself in the countless books at the BookSale stall in Alimall. Last month, I also had the luxury of buying books at Edsa Mall. Until now, I haven’t read all of them. I’ll read those books when I reach K*it. But it seems that there are some things that cause the delay of our travel.

For this afternoon, here’s what I bought. I will list them first as ordered list, but I hope to post the pictures of each of these books later. In my later postings, I will make some commentaries, feedback about these books. ONLY in my spare time.
