So far, she’s been surprised that her husband is much more of a “family man” and doting dad than she had expected.

Annie Cheng

Annie talks to TNAP about how her husband has helped shoulder some parenting responsibilities, made impressive sacrifices for the family, and transformed into an expert at night shifts with the baby.

TNAP: How did your husband help you cope during those early days right after you and the baby came home from the hospital?

Luckily, my husband was able to take one month off work to help me take care of Everett. It was extremely stressful during the first couple of days home from the hospital, and having my husband there helped a great deal. He took the hardest night shift (the “witching hour”) when Everett was at his fussiest), changed diapers, bottle-fed the baby and soothed him to sleep. Most importantly, my husband helped ground me whenever I got overly stressed about the small things. He calmed me down and was the voice of reason.

TNAP: How do you split or share parenting responsibilities?

My son is only 6 months old so thankfully there are no school or extracurricular activities to deal with yet. But because my husband has a very demanding job that requires traveling four days out of a week, it leaves most of the parenting responsibilities to me (feeding Everett, putting him to bed, etc.) when I get home from work. I do anticipate my husband to take over more as our son grows, though! He’s already so excited to play tennis and basketball with Everett once he’s old enough.

TNAP: What are the specific ways your husband has helped and supported you during your motherhood journey?

Financials are a big thing. As unromantic as that sounds, it has been a big relief to not have to worry about the hospital and pediatrician bills. There are enough hardships as it is! Other than that, my happiest moments are when my husband comes home after several days of traveling and holds Everett and kisses him, and Everett smiles a huge smile back. Knowing that somebody else on earth loves Everett as much as I do is a big support in itself.

TNAP: What do you think is the bravest thing or biggest sacrifice your husband has made for the family?

Withstanding my illogical angry outbursts. It’s not easy to live with me when I get overly emotional and high strung. But my husband keeps showing patience and affection throughout the difficult times, and I do think that is a big sacrifice to his ego – especially when he has to bear the brunt of my temper.

His freedom to go out is also sacrificed. Socializing has always been extremely important to him. He’s an extrovert who loves going out and having fun with his friends. But now instead of going out every week, he only goes out every other week. It’s not really that fatherhood has changed the person he is. It’s more that his priorities have shifted. I know he genuinely cherishes the time he spends with our son, even if it means passing up on drinks with his buddies sometimes.

Also, initially my husband wasn’t as ready as I was to have a kid. He’s actually a couple of years younger than me. While I wanted to try to conceive right after we got married, he wanted to wait longer. But he eventually agreed for my sake. A lot of marriage is about compromise – and it’s the same with starting and building a family.

TNAP: What is something new you’ve learned about your husband since seeing him as a dad?

He is a very family-oriented guy. He always thinks of his family first. I know that Everett and I are his #1 priority and the reason why he works so hard at work.

10 Marriage Tips Every Husband Needs to Hear http://thenewageparents.com/10-marriage-tips-every-husband-needs-to-hear/ http://thenewageparents.com/10-marriage-tips-every-husband-needs-to-hear/#comments Fri, 12 Feb 2016 04:23:31 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=105232 Contrary to the many romantic movies you may have seen with your better half, marriage is not about having that picture-perfect home, an adorable brood and hearty home-cooked meals every day, although those things can be the icing on the cake. Real marriage is hard work. You might have days when you feel like you just can’t understand the woman you married, and completely at a loss as to what to do.

10 Marriage Tips Every Husband Needs to Hear

1. L-O-V-E

A man’s greatest need is to be respected, and a woman’s greatest need is to be loved. Demonstrating your love does not have to be a lavish affair, but it should be an integral part of day-to-day life. Love to a woman is rarely just about sex. From the way you speak to her in private and public, to whether or not you contribute to managing chores at home, to the time you spend together on weekends – every little act you do can speak volumes to your wife. There will, of course, be days when your wife just seems unlovable, possibly after harsh words have been exchanged or a seemingly unreasonable request made, but remember that no one is perfect. Remember your marriage vows, to love and cherish “for better for worse”.

2. Know her love language

marriage tips for husbands

All of us give and receive love in different ways, and one of the best gifts you can give towards your marriage is to understand yourself and your spouse’s love languages. According to psychologist Gary Chapman, the five main love languages are Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Gifts, Acts of Service and Physical Touch. Find out what is your love language here.

3. Treat her with gentleness and respect

Even the most independent, assertive woman wants a partner who will treat her with gentleness and respect. Not out of fear of incurring her wrath, nor out of a sense of male superiority that thinks of her as weak and ineffective, but out of a genuine desire to lead the marriage by example and honour his wife.

4. Listen well

Most men are natural problem solvers, and gravitate towards finding the solution to any problem that presents itself, including your wife’s. On the other hand, most women are not as interested in solving their problems as they are in finding someone to come alongside them in the journey. Your wife wants your empathy, not your suggestions. She wants you to set aside your newspaper to listen to her share, not for you to brush her worries off as “trivial”. Guys, learn to listen well to your spouse first, and discuss options later.

marriage tips for men5. Make time for romance

When marriage begins, it doesn’t mean that your dating days are over. Often, the daily routine of everyday life can squash out the sparks of romance that were so much a part of your courtship, and it will take effort from both parties to keep the flame alive. Romance begins at home – from the littlest things, like making her breakfast in bed, or surprising her with a bouquet of her favourite blooms. Plan one-on-one special dates on anniversaries and birthdays, and random days in between. Make time to share your dreams, plan your next holiday, talk about your fears, or even explore a new hobby together.

6. Communication is key

The root of most relationship problems is a lack of communication. There is no substitute for open, honest communication in a marriage. Many women make the mistake of assuming that their husbands will be able to read between the lines or know what to do, feel, say in response to what they have shared. Conversely, many men prefer to “say things as it is”. Sometimes, your wires will get crossed. Husbands, don’t give up! Communication is truly a fine art that takes much time and experience to perfect, and even though it may be frustrating at times to try to “read” your woman, keep trying. The effort alone means more to her than you may know.

7. Share responsibilities for the home

It takes two hands to clap, and it will take both parties in the marriage to make the house a home. Granted, not every man is house-husband material – nor should he have to be – but men are not exempt from housework simply by virtue of their gender. This is especially true today when most households are dual-income. At the end of a long day of work, your wife is at least as exhausted as you are, so surely she shouldn’t have to bear the brunt of the household chores. And husbands, if your wife is a Stay-At-Home-Mum, know that she has not been sitting on the sofa shaking her legs all day – the job of mothering is one of the toughest jobs there is.

8. Take time to get to know her family and friends

You might not like every single family member or friend of your wife – you don’t have to – but now that you’re married, it would mean the world to your wife if you would at least try to get to know the people that matter so much to her. So if you haven’t done this pre-marriage, make it a point to get to know these key people in your wife’s life.

9. Don’t compare

Comparison is a great thief of contentment in any marriage. Resist the urge to compare your wife with your buddies’ other halves or characters on-screen. No woman is perfect, and the same goes for men. This is especially dangerous when it applies to a man’s sexual fantasies, and is one great reason why so many married men turn to porn to satisfy their desires. And yet, by doing that, they are effectively ruining the actual sexual experience for themselves, and ultimately, the relationship will suffer.

10. You are not her father

That moment when the bride’s father hands his beloved daughter to the groom can be one of the most poignant moments in a wedding. For a man, it can feel like he has been entrusted with a priceless treasure to protect and keep – and in some senses he has. But sometimes, concern can turn into over-protection, and leadership into a dictatorship. Always remember that you are not your wife’s father – she already has one. Husbands: Love, respect, protect and support your wife as an equal, not as a child in need of your parental authority.

My Husband, My Hero: Charlene Low http://thenewageparents.com/my-husband-my-hero-charlene-low/ http://thenewageparents.com/my-husband-my-hero-charlene-low/#comments Tue, 09 Feb 2016 04:44:00 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=99925 Charlene Low has two boys with her husband of nearly four years. Before their second son was born, they set aside one night a week for date night. The couple also loves to travel together, both with and without kids. Even after becoming parents, they’ve managed to travel to Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, Lankawi, Phuket, Taiwan, and China.

Charlene Low + Family

Charlene and her husband have their hands full with two kids less than two years apart. Here, she shares glimpses into their parenting journey, and the moments that made her truly appreciate the man she married.

TNAP: How did your husband help you cope during those early days right after you and the baby came home from the hospital? What about after you gave birth to another baby?

Our confinement nanny arrived shortly after we got home from the hospital. She needed us to get quite a number of things, such as certain confinement cooking ingredients, and my husband would go with her to buy them. It was great having him deal with all of that whilst I rested.

Seeing my husband changing diapers, soothing the baby when he was crying, taking over some of the bottle feedings, and just generally doing his best to make himself useful made me feel like I wasn’t alone.

When our second kid arrived, my husband did spend more time with our first kid especially when the little one needed to sleep or be fed.

TNAP: How do you split or share parenting responsibilities?

Since our kids are still so small, my husband and I handle most of the parenting responsibilities together. But sometimes I work on the weekends, so he’ll take our boys for jabs and play with them until I’m done. He also takes care of sporty things like kicking a ball around with them while I’m usually the one who does the reading and singing.

TNAP: What are the specific ways your husband has helped and supported you during your motherhood journey?

I was determined to breastfeed but initially it was very hard. What I appreciated most was the support and encouragement my husband gave me during this period. He never gave me stress or put me down. Instead he encouraged me all the way. It was during this period that I truly appreciated the man I married: someone who was supportive of what I wanted instead of asking me to take the easy way out.

TNAP: What do you think is the bravest thing or biggest sacrifice your husband has made for the family?

He gives his time to us. He gives up the time to sleep in and sacrifices drinking with his buddies to spend time with us.

TNAP: What is something new you’ve learned about your husband since seeing him as a dad?

I’ve learnt that he is such a softie at heart who can’t really say no to his kids.

TNAP: Favourite memory of your husband and the kids or favorite thing to see him do with the kids?

My favourite memory is of him passing out on the couch holding our sleeping newborn in his arms. It had been a particularly difficult night; the baby wasn’t sleeping and my husband had spent a long time trying to get him to sleep. They both finally got so tired that they just passed out. It was such a heartwarming sight.

My favourite thing to see is my husband playing with the kids. Any kind of play makes me happy.

It’s not common for older generation Asian parents to say those three words openly to their children. But that doesn’t mean they don’t express it at all.

Sometimes, we just have to stop, and read between the lines.

My Husband, My Hero: June Ho http://thenewageparents.com/my-husband-my-hero-june-ho/ http://thenewageparents.com/my-husband-my-hero-june-ho/#comments Sat, 06 Feb 2016 04:49:48 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=99934 When June Ho met her husband, she knew right off the bat that he would make a great dad. Part of what attracted her to him was how great he was with kids. Now they have two boys of their own.

June Ho and Family

In the following interview with TNAP, June, a stay-at-home-mum, shares how her husband helps balance her kiasu-ness, the important role he plays in her motherhood journey, and why his nickname is the “alarm clock of the family.”

TNAP: How did your husband help you cope during those early days right after you and the baby came home from the hospital? What about after you gave birth to another baby?

My parents came to help me and prepare food for me during the first couple of months after my babies were born, since my husband didn’t have paternity leave at his company. When he was off from work, my husband also helped take care of the baby, like bottle-feeding and diaper changing. Every night he would rush downstairs to prepare the bottle so that I didn’t have to get out of bed.

When our second child was born, my husband always took our first son out for morning walks so that the younger one and I can sleep in. I appreciate how he was so considerate.

TNAP: How do you split or share parenting responsibilities?

I’ve never been a morning person. When the kids went to elementary school, my husband prepared breakfast for them and walked them to the school bus stop. Now the kids are older and he’s still the “alarm clock” of the family. He sets three alarms because everyone wakes up at slightly different times. We all rely on him to get things in order in the morning. And he still prepares breakfast for the kids.

I’m the one who always reminds the kids to do homework and get good grades. You could say I’m the nagging one. When the kids were small, I tutored them. Now that they are older, I still constantly remind them to do well at school but sometimes it’s beyond my ability to help them with high school math and physics; that’s when my husband steps in to teach them. When the kids and I get into arguments, my husband plays the role of mediator.

We also split weekend and weekday driving duties. For example, my husband drives the kids to their Chinese and tutoring classes on the weekends, and I drive them on the weekdays. As far as parenting responsibilities and tasks go, I feel like we make a pretty good team.

TNAP: What are the specific ways your husband has helped and supported you during your motherhood journey?

He helps our kids with the things I can’t help them with. For example, he taught them how to ride bikes and he taught our older one how to drive a car. He takes over some house chores and prepares meals for us on the weekends. There are countless ways he’s supported me. Whenever I need anything, he is there to help.

TNAP: What do you think is the bravest thing or biggest sacrifice your husband has made for the family?

He left his family—his parents and sibling—to come here and establish a family with me. I know he wants to go back to Taiwan but because of me, he has stayed here to raise our kids together. I feel safe knowing that I can count on him.

TNAP: What is something new you’ve learned about your husband since seeing him as a dad?

He is patient. He never scolds the kids for getting bad grades. Instead, he searches for things that can stimulate their interest so that they can learn at every opportunity, not in a forced setting but in natural, fun and spontaneous ways.

TNAP: Favorite memory of your husband and the kids or favorite thing to see him do with the kids?

Lots and lots of things. Everything he does for the kids is my favorite.

MOSH! Singapore’s First Immersive Edutainment Facility http://thenewageparents.com/mosh-singapore-sentosa/ http://thenewageparents.com/mosh-singapore-sentosa/#comments Fri, 05 Feb 2016 03:43:41 +0000 http://thenewageparents.com/?p=33539 Imagination comes to life in Singapore’s first digital creative future space

Orchestrate fireworks, create one-of-a-kind aquatic creatures, or launch a jumbo jet from your hand – MOSH!, Singapore’s very first immersive edutainment facility, will showcase state-of-the-art multimedia technology to allow guests to create imaginary worlds of their own.

“MOSH! is created from the belief that imagination fuels innovation. Some of the greatest innovations for the past centuries have positively changed the way we lived and shaped our society to what we know today. It starts with the simple question of ‘what if?’. Through this new creative future space, we want children, and even adults, to gain confidence in their own creativity, and to share this creativity with others in a fun-loving environment,” said, Ms Hitomi Komuro, Director of Creative Future Park, the parent company leading the project.

A showcase of the best in technology from Japan, the digital media playground will showcase an exciting line-up of five installations from three partners. Award-winning Japanese creative studio 1->10 Holdings Inc., which has won over 150 local and international awards, including the award for Creative Use of Technology at the prestigious Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, has come on-board to develop the edutainment installations for MOSH!. Global imaging and electronics company, Ricoh Group, which is known for its quality of technology and tradition for innovation, and leading Japanese digital technology company, Coconoe Inc, are also involved in the project.

Each technological masterpiece employs advanced gesture recognition and motion design, coupled with multi-touch detection and projection mapping capabilities to create an immersive virtual experience which is real-time, responsive and reactive.

Ms Hitomi added, “Our immersive creative space enables everyone to appreciate each other’s creativity and imagination in a shared environment. They allow us to understand how our individual choices and actions, expressed through a visible form, can affect and cause changes in others.”

The five attractions of MOSH! Singapore are

:
Land: MOSH!cot Hide and-Seek

With these five attractions, MOSH! hopes that its visitors will leave the space with a deeper understanding in pattern and causality recognition, spatial intelligence, logic thinking, power of expression, and a respect for diversity.

The creative future space will be the latest addition to Sentosa’s wide array of world-class entertainment offerings. Ms Susan Ang, divisional director of Sentosa’s Island Investment and Branding team said, “MOSH! adds a new dimension to the offerings of The State of Fun, providing the entire family an opportunity to learn from digital play while spending quality time together. Its innovative use of multimedia will be sure to fascinate and appeal to a younger tech-savvy generation. We believe MOSH! will enhance the fun experiences for all on Sentosa and we look forward to the opening of this new attraction.”

For the SGD2.5 million project, Creative Future Park also partnered with several Japanese agencies including writing instruments manufacturer, Mitsubishi Pencil Co., Ltd, which will be introducing their products outside of Japan for the first time; furniture and interior multi design awards recipient, Ichiba Co., Ltd; as well as renowned Japanese artist, Sensyu Yasuko, who is well-known for her use of colours and brush strokes that adds a child-like quality to her art.

A platform for adventure and self-discovery, MOSH! is Singapore’s first edutainment facility for the next-generation family committed to nurturing innovative leaders of tomorrow by inspiring every park visitor to live with the outlook of embracing possibilities.
