Three-year-old Little Jo is playing with his trains. You need him to get ready to bathe. 

Want to interrupt your child (and need him to do something)?

Stop what YOU are doing. Avoid shouting out your instructions. You can move within an arm's length instead of saying it...

How were the TWOrrefic years of your little one? Still have energy left?

By now I hope you've eased into the Present Parenting principles. Here's a recap:

20 days in Hong Kong and we are almost broke. Broke and happy. We finally got to be reunited after 9 months of unexpected separation! I barely remember the direction or the transportation routes and the roads as the last time I was here was 2005. 

There is nowhere...
