Ask Mum & Dad

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Parenthood -

Mum and Dad­dan­swer­an­swer all your ques­tions about par­ent­ing. They may not al­ways agree but they’re al­ways full of ad­vice. If you have a ques­tion for Mum and Dad, send it to kids@time­out­ Dear Mum & Dad, I’m a stay-at-home mum of two – my son is three years old and my daugh­ter is just about to turn one. I get bored at home all day (and so does my son) so I’m try­ing to think of ways to get out of the house and keep both chil­dren en­ter­tained. How can I plan an out­ing that suits both a three-year-old and a one-year-old? Need­ing Time Out in Malacca. Mum: You do need to get out and prefer­ably some­where with other par­ents who you could meet again. A play­ground would be good, but an ac­tiv­ity cen­tre is bet­ter given the heat in our coun­try. Or you could also look out for kid-friendly cafés with play ar­eas and baby chairs. That way, you can ren­dezvous with friends while the three-year old en­joys the play­ground and the one-year old

stays by your side. Dad: I’m not great at or­gan­is­ing days out, but might I sug­gest read­ing more of this es­teemed jour­nal and its web­site time­ for many more places and ideas for what to do with your fam­ily. If it were up to me, how­ever, I’d sim­ply take the tots into the gar­den – which is also out­doors – for a lit­tle rough and tum­ble.
