An interesting boy is coming to my life

Filed under: Parenting 101 — admin @ 8:03 am

I forgot to post an entry yesterday.
Yesterday morning I received an email sent to my office inbox. It was from my sister in Beijing, telling me that she and her 10-year-old son would come to America on 7/20, which is the coming Sunday. This is a pleasant surprise. I wrote down many things that I needed to do after I got back home. Thus I forgot posting.

Her son will go to school here, most of time under my care when she has to go back to China to take care of her work there. From my talk with her over Skype, I understand it is going to be a challenge to lash out the discipline to him.

I realize next 3 to 4 years will be a critical forming period for him, and the task might fall on me if my sister cannot be here all the time.  I am honoured or shouldn’t I be?  Lucky for me that my daughter agreed to help out on this.  On the much bright side, I have one more person to love and to be loved, to care and to be cared. Don’t you envy me for this?

  1. It will be hard to help raise other’s children. Hopefully the boy does not have problems listen to you. Well, on the other hand, if he can feel your love, I think it won’t be a big issue at all. I admire your sacrifice on this big help for the boy and your sister.
