MOTHER: IS IT NORMAL FOR ME TO BE NAKED IN FRONT OF MY SONS?

My two boys are 5 and 8. I still allow them to see me naked while I am bathing or changing clothes. The reason that I did not stop them is I don't feel the need to 'hide'. Wouldn't it make them feel more curious to know about mummy's body or maybe other girl's body in the future if I keep hiding from them. I tot maybe if they see it frequently, it will become 'nothing' in their eyes so their mind will not get too excited or curious about women's body when they grow up. I don't want my sons to grow up being to curious about sex and want them to treat it as a normal part of themselves.

S'PORE PARENTS STOP STRESSING YOUR KIDS & LOVE THEM WITH ALL YOUR HEART

I fully understand the tremendous pressure of the Singapore's education system and your great love for your children, wanting them to excel and do well academically but life is so much more... Love your children as much as you can but stop seeing yourself as the authoritative figure, trying to control their lives... Guide them well, step by step... commune with them as good friends do... be there always no matter what kind of results they get... The roads are theirs... you cannot dictate them to walk the paths you want them to... even though you may think yours are better ways...

The mother had restricted the movements of her 13-year-old son and always told him he had to stay home after returning from school. She thought it was the safest way to keep him out of trouble or getting involved in vice activities. Only the maid was at home while both the boy's parents went to work. The mother would call several times a day to ensure he was either at school or at home. However, due to loneliness, the young teenager invited a classmate to his home and the two boys later became a "couple" and had gay sex at the house for the past three years.

Sengkang Swimming Complex and Sengkang Floating Wetland

This complex is great. Eight waterslides – I mean how can the little munchkins not be happy with that? I’ll tell you how – for six of the big slides, you have to be five years old AND 1.2 meters tall. Both of my lads did not fit the requirements, and surprisingly, took it in their stride. I really did expect a fight, but they were very cool – phew. They would have loved it though. So be prepared if you go there with little kids.

Singapore Air Show with the RSAF family day

This weekend (Feb 15-16, 2014) promises to be an exciting weekend for families! The Singapore Air show is here in town, and tickets will be open to the public.
