FYI, children at age 3 to 6 are very dominant in their right brain.
They are creative, imaginative, asking lots of surprising questions.
Parents have to be often observed this behavior and find the correct ways to teach them how to make use of this talent!
Some tips to teach your lil angel:
To be able to teach a toddlers class, you will need to understand something about child development, and structure the classes in such a way as to compliment and reinforce this.
Child development has four main aspects, and these are as follows (collectively, these are known as “PIES” (easy way of remembering them!):
Teaching toddlers can be an extremely rewarding undertaking as you can often see the results of your efforts almost immediately *Insya-Allah*. It is well worth the extra efforts involved 😉
Recommended teaching methods for toddler & preschoolers:
Children of this age have:
- A great deal of energy
- A very short attention span
- An ability to learn quickly
- A love of games and play
- Varying levels of coordination
This means that your lessons will need to be the following:
- Safe! (safety first).
- Short (30/45 mins max).
- Kinaesthetic (emphasis placed upon “doing”).
- Interesting, challenging and informative.
- Have plenty of variety.
- Contain lots of the “fun” element.
Practice make perfect 😉 Practice is the last secret.
Keep on trying mommies Homeschooling is the BEST!
May Allah swt always bless & help you. Amin~

Wish you were in the pink of health dear mommies 😉
For this week updates, we would like to contribute on Extreme Sport; Parkour Sensation for Toddlers & Preschoolers.
When I found out about parkour from my beloved hubby, I was like, ‘Wait, it’s a sport?‘ ” ^0^
- It’s like urban gymnastics!
- It’s like acrobatic style freerunning ~
- At its purest, its nothing like any of those things at all 😀 *oh so clueless rite?*
Understand that this art has been created by few soldiers in Vietnam to escape or reach: and this is the spirit I’d like parkour to keep. You have to make the difference between what is useful and what is not in emergency situations. Then you’ll know what is parkour and what is not. So if you do acrobatics things on the street with no other goal than showing off, please don’t say it’s parkour. Acrobatics existed long time ago before parkour~David Belle (Founder of Parkour)
Warming up >_<
What is Parkour?
- Parkour, which originated in France, is a way of getting around objects in the quickest way possible, often by climbing, jumping or vaulting over them instead of just walking around them.
- Parkour is also sometimes called free running, which is thought of as a more aesthetic version of the techniques.
- Two French teenagers, David Belle and Sébastien Foucan, developed parkour in Lisses, a Paris suburb. They drew on their experience in gymnastics and martial arts, as well as the obstacle-course training that Belle’s father underwent as a soldier in Vietnam. The name is derived from the French phrase, parcours du combattant, roughly translated as “military obstacle course.”
- Practitioners of parkour are known as “traceurs“.
- Although their movement looked natural and unscripted, parkour has its own lexicon of maneuvers.
- Like the martial arts that helped inspire it, parkour is a mental discipline as well as a physical one.
- Parkour is getting more and more attention thanks to media appearances and stunts in films like the latest James Bond flick, Casino Royale. Brands like Nike, Toyota and Adidas began using parkour in ad campaigns. Soon enthusiasts all over the world were using Internet message boards to swap tips, share pictures and arrange practice sessions, known as jams.
My angels ^-^
Chubby lil baby HidE-cHan
If you think that parkour sounds like something that young kids are fanatic about, you’d be totally right.
The King a.k.a PaPa, personally had been teaching our kids “parkour” since last year and they really love it *alhamdulillah* 😀
These are some of my kids weekly workout routine as beginner in this utmost games (more to learn, Insya-Allah):
- Safety first, look before you leap, how to know your limits and know the risks.
- How to control your body movements, and making them more efficient.
- Learning basic skills:
– Jumping and landings
– Soft and silent landings
“There are no limits, only obstacles, and every obstacle can be overcome” ~ Parkour
Below are some of our kiddies pictures to show their moves 😉
Almost touch the sky >_<
Great job bro!
Smooth landing sis ^_- Good job!
Go on sis!

“Haters are confused admirers who can’t understand why everybody else likes you” ~ Sir Paulo Coelho
My melody for Dear Haters:
Check It Out [by Miss Nicki Minaj]
Stepped up in the party like my name was “that b***h”.
All these haters mad because I’m so established.
They know I’m a beast, yeah I’m a f**king savage
Haters you can kill yourself.
In my space shuttle and I’m not coming down
I’m a stereo and she’s just so monotone
Sometimes it’s just me and all my bottles all alone
I ain’t coming back this time 😀Who’s Laughing Now [by Miss Jessie J]
She broke out of the box
Swallowed your pride
You got that ego cough
Let the haters hate
You’re like way too late
Click click to see I got a message from you
“Hola, I’m proud of you”
“Oh my God babe your voice is like wow! “
My reply: Who’s laughing now? 😉
Oh, so you think you know me now
Have you forgotten how
You would make me feel
When you drag my spirit down?
But thank you for the pain
It made me raise my game
And I’m still rising, I’m still rising
So make your jokes
Go for broke
Blow your smoke
You’re not alone
But who’s laughing now
But who’s laughing nowSo raise the bar
Hit me hard
Play your cards
Be a star
But who’s laughing now
But who’s laughing nowWho’s laughing, laughing now?

All the writings is 100% based on my personal know-how derived from my experienced & reading through the wonder of Internet and books.

Nevertheless, thank you so much for your support. May Allah swt bless your kindness family. Amin~
Some of FAQ that I loved to share:
- “Loved your site, but you misspelled x and it turned me off or too bad about all the typos”
Well… if this means that you are volunteering to edit my future written work GREAT!
Honestly though, I get really tired of people pointing out to the dyslexic gal that she spelled whatever.
If I were blind you, wouldn’t tell me my taste in clothes sucked and that my clothes didn’t match.
- “Loved your site, – you misspelled x. Plus with grammatical error”
Thanks – for skipping the guilt trip please feel free to send me any misspelling or grammar issue you see.
As you see, you won’t be here to read about us if you want read / learn; on the subject of “Guide to Grammar & Writing” *I wonder; why are you at our site at the first place?*
Oh, maybe you didn’t know what is the meaning of personal blog a.k.a private journal (Did you need a teacher to grade your diary? LoL)
- “Did you received any award?”
Alhamdulillah, we had obtained lots of International & Asia-Pacific Award since year 2002 and still counting (Insya-Allah) *plus my writing had been published in USA *yep, a book with ISBN*
I don’t think I should revealed ’em all here or attach my resume to you? *ahaha damn funny*
Phenomenon of Internet Persona non Grata? *yay*
Who ever you are, may Allah swt blessed you and embrace you with His Almighty 😉
On my personal side, I am no one to be proud of.
p/s: Now I puzzled over, why on earth; I never gain any criticisms from abroad readers *wink*
(even thought my hubby already traced your I.P *cheerio*)

Hola dearest dedicated mommies 😉
What did you do this weekend with your toddler?
If you don’t have any particular purpose, you could just make lacing card craft with your lil angel >_<
Cheerful boy with his favorite dinosaurs 😉
Lacing projects are a great craft for toddlers to complete anytime.
Lacing teaches hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, basic sewing skills, practice tying knots and bows (shoelaces!).
Print out, laminate fun lacing cards for your toddler. Punch holes around the edge with a single hole punch, then pass out shoe strings/ribbons or yarn and let the fun begin.
Some of our kiddies lacing cards collection 😀
Things You’ll Need:
- wool or ribbon
- single hole punch
- card stock, poster board or construction paper
- We prefer the thicker card stock for lacing projects
- You may allow the children to cut out their card stock shapes with safety scissor (available in the market).
- You also may ask the children to help make holes around their shape (about an inch or two apart).
- Provide the children with a length of wool or ribbon. You can wrap some scotch tape around the end of the wool to make it more like a shoe lace. Have the child thread the wool through the holes.
- Practice tying knots and/or bows to tie off in the center.
Optional: Let the children use glitter, paint or stickers to further decorate their completed project.
Have fun mommies.
Just remember: safety first! 😉
May all the best to you. Amin~
