Who should care?🤔
Caring about others is a heroic act by itself.
As we (children) are busy growing up, we tend to forget that our parents are growing old at the same time. And the most precious things we can give to our elders are time, love, and care.
@wearedadstoo knows that caregiving for our elders has never been a walk in the park. With the empowering culture of care involving every level of society from the school, youths, employers, neighbours, doctors and nurses to the friendly aging policy changes in the government.
We can have compassion, empathy, and a culture of care as a reality. Listen to this episode featuring Dr. Chan Yeow if you are curious to know who should be responsible for taking care of the elderly at Spotify @wearedadstoo!
Son: Dad, I’m going to make a cup of coffee to stay awake for final EURO 2020, would you like to have a cup? I can make it for you.
Dad: Oh dear, it sounds tempting, but I’m good. Thank you for asking.
The above conversation might sound normal with the son being considerate and caring. But, to have these values inculcated actually takes a lot of practice in a family household.T here are a lot of family values, but what we can do is to choose and pick those values that we can put into action on a daily basis.
The more the values are being practiced, the more it becomes second nature to the family.
Come and join us @wearedadstoo Spotify if you are curious to know about the three pillars of family culture and how family values can be translated into action.
Which types of parenting styles work for you? Authoritative? Indulgent? Indifferent? Collaborative?🤔
