In My Own Words:
Here's an app developer in Kuala Lumpur. Besides my compulsory reading mostly on the internet to find latest information on IT, I enjoy leisure reading. Give me newspaper, magazines, and books. True stories gets an extra point from me. And I am still getting myself comfortable with non-fictions.
But hey, I'm not a nerd. I also enjoy movies, travelling, (some) sports, and other outdoor activi… Read more

Her Daughters Eyes by Jessica Inclan
Her Daughters Eyes by Jessica Inclan
4.0 out of 5 stars Sad.. sad, May 31 2004
After reading it, I lost my appetite to write a review. I was disturbed by the reality of our life. What's wrong with us adults..?
This is not so much about the pregnancy or the birth. 17-year-old Kate is secretly pregnant and her younger sister, Tyler, delivered the baby. That concludes early in the book. So does the half-mystery of "who's the father and why the secret". (I won't spoil)

She actually suffered from the trauma for many years and didn't even realize that. She went through it all and journeyed the recovery. And the brave soul finally found home.
Personality Plus for Parents: Understanding What M&hellip by Florence Littauer
Having read Personality Plus and thoroughly enjoyed that, I bought "PP for Parents" as gift to my sister (and read it too).
I'm single, but I suppose the book is really helpful for parents to understand their children better. How many times we hear parents say "I wish you're more like your brother!"? Every child is different and each should be treated differently accordingly. This book explains how they differ, and guides us on how to more effectively deal with it. Parents could also avoid unnecessary or even damaging reaction/treatment to the differences.
Since the personality of an individual is innate, recognizing it in a child is easier. And critical. It is beneficial to start… Read more
