My husband is fixing the zamboni machine at an ice skating rink in an SM mall.
We bring along our daughter with us. We picked her up from home and bring her along with us. At present, she is just walking around and trying to keep herself busy. Given her age, she finds the white polar bears interesting.
My parents always brought us with them when we were young. After school, they’ll pick us up and we will tag along with them wherever they’ll go.
We would go with them during business meetings. Even when my dad plays mahjong, my brother and I will be in the other room with my mother, doing our homeworks or watching VCDs.
It’s nice to see that we’re doing the same thing with our own offspring.
We bring her to the office everyday since she was 1 month old. By the time she was 4 months old, she’s been to more than 20 malls around Metro Manila.
When I see her much exposed to various experiences, it makes me happy. I feel that I am reliving my parents’ footsteps.
And I liked how I turned out.
How about you? Does your child accompany you often? What are your beliefs in child rearing?
