Child Guilt

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Your Say -

(Fe­bru­ary) re­ally struck a chord. My mum passed away ve years ago, so my dad now lives at home with a helper. My brother and I have asked him to live with ei­ther of us but he says he likes his in­de­pen­dence. I think he doesn’t want to bother us. Al­though we meet up ev­ery weekend for lunch, it’s not enough. Your ar­ti­cle re­minded me that it’s nor­mal to feel guilty about our par­ents, but it’s not healthy to feel guilty about ev­ery­thing that we can’t do with or for them. I’ll pay closer at­ten­tion to my dad’s needs and hope that he will see my love and ef­fort. Luah Moi Kee The story Do You Have “Child Guilt”?

De­li­cious Por­ridge

I was send­ing Hubby off at the air­port’s de­par­ture gate while think­ing of what I should cook for my daugh­ter, when I saw a copy of the Fe­bru­ary is­sue at a book­store. Buy­ing it was my best de­ci­sion that day, as I found recipes for por­ridge in the Home & Food sec­tion. They use easy-to-nd in­gre­di­ents but look in­cred­i­bly de­li­cious. Thank you for solv­ing my prob­lem with my fussy lit­tle eater at home. Joleen Tan

Baby­mak­ing Guide

I shared my copy of Sim­ply Her with one of my girl­friends when I found out that she and her hubby have been try­ing for a Horse baby. We had fun read­ing The Mar­ried Sex Sur­vey and thought the 8 Baby-mak­ing Mis­takes To Avoid and tips from other women were help­ful.
