炯叔叔的兒童書單 - 教小孩上大號

爸爸媽媽是很奇怪的一群人,他們很喜歡💩。

真的。

💩不可怕,爸媽最怕是BB幾天拉不出。當BB真的幾天沒有拉屎之後突然能拉出來時,這些💩真的讓爸爸媽媽開心屎了!

💩不可怕,爸爸媽媽們還會拿在手看著看著研究💩的形狀(一粒粒的?和稀泥的?)、顏色(綠色的?棕色的?)、氣味(帶酸味的?)、狀態(硬的?軟的?半固態?多水?)擔心BB吃得太多太少太寒太熱。。。

💩不可怕,爸媽最怕小孩拉錯地方。啥?這就是當BB進入小小孩(幼兒)時,開始需要坐便訓練(Potty training)。

小小孩學在廁所/便壺(Potty)坐便不容易的,因為這是他們一個人生的改變。

首先,你先要小小孩不怕💩,之後要小孩願意戒掉用尿片(這個不是容易的),願意嘗試用廁所/便壺(potty)。坊間很多「十大教小小孩坐便訓練清單」,炯叔叔不在這裡說了。

但炯叔叔在Alison身上的經驗是,什麼「坐便訓練清單」其實是硬技術,不重要的。最最最重要是先改變小小孩的心態,先不要讓小孩害怕,要小孩歡迎這個人生的改變(welcome change),這是思想教育。

那麼思想教育從哪裡入手?當然是書本啦。

所以,今天炯叔叔介紹當年我對Ally做思想工作最多的兩本兒童書給大家。

一本是Taro Gomi(五味太郎)的“Everyone Poops”,另外一本是Leslie Patricelli的”On My Potty”。

“Everyone Poops“ by Taro Gomi

這本書的內容其實超簡單,就是告訴小孩所有動物也拉屎,拉屎是超級正常的事。同時,每一種動物有不同拉屎的方法,而人就是這樣拉的。完!

很簡單很簡單。 42 more words

Productive Procrastination: Just Go With It

Hello, hello!  It’s been a slow couple of weeks writing-wise.  I’ve been re-reading Garnets and Guardians in preparation for another round of edits (it really shouldn’t have taken me two weeks to get through it, but I was lazy and not so productively procrastinating).  559 more words
