What are the essentials to instill in our children?

Since I will have more opportunities to direct the growth of Little Prince from autumn 2017 (InShaAllah), I have brainstormed on what are essentials for him. “Grown men can learn from very little children, for the hearts of little children a pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show children many things that older people miss.” […]

How to be independent?

As parents, one of my prayers for our children is that they will grow into independent people. At the most fundamental level, independent people are able to care for their food, clothing, accommodation, and travel [4], collectively termed as 衣食住行, which are the basic necessities of lives and termed as the physiological need by Abraham […]

What are self-actualizing characteristics?

Tonight (20150923), I feel a little hurt because a young man whom I just helped in the morning, complained a minor thing regarding my help.
