Personality development

Posted by The Visitor மேல் செப்ரெம்பர் 16, 2008

இதைப் பார்த்ததும், ஏதோ பர்ஸனாலிடி டெவலப்பமன்ட் கோர்ஸைப் பத்தி எழுதறதா நினைச்சுக்காதீங்க. இது நாம் ஏன் இப்ப இந்த பர்ஸனாலிடியோட இருக்கோம்ங்கறதைப் பத்தி இருக்கிற சில தியறிகள் (theories).

Personality Development

Psychosexual development – Sigmund Freud – One of the earliest theories; என்னடா கதை விடறாரேனு தோனும்.

Psychosocial development – Erik Erikson – Appears to be more acceptable.

இதெல்லாம் conclusiveனு சொல்ல முடியாது, but தெரிஞ்சு வெச்சுக்கறதில தப்பில்லைனு நினைக்கிறேன். Could be useful to young parents in raising their children. எது எப்படியோ, நாம எப்படி வளர்த்தாலும், நம்ம குழந்தைங்க கிட்ட “என்னை நீங்க சரியை வளர்க்கலை” னு வாங்கிக் கட்டிக்கப்போறது என்னவோ உறுதி. சந்தேகம்னா லதா வைக்கேளுங்க. 🙂

Some time-pass: நீங்க என்ன Personality typeனு தெரிஞ்சுக்கனுமா?.

You can get more info on this test on the net. Here is the wiki page on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test.

Returning to india

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் மார்ச் 20, 2008

From someone whose parents returned to India.

Parents think that children are ‘just children’ and adapt easily to any kind of surroundings.  But that’s not the case.

[…..]

People wanting the Indian culture to raise their children, please return to India before your children can differentiate between Papa and Mama because otherwise there is all chance that you may be cursed to death by your very own offsprings.

Remember the episode on mommy bloggers and Internet security? It continues….

It continues with  a little change in direction, but in a healthy way.

Mommy blogs and internet security

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் திசெம்பர் 5, 2007

– You take up a blog-name, call your kids bubble-gum, laddu, jaangiri, what not, to keep their identities private, but paste their pictures all over the blog and in every post.

A very heated discussion. Followed in the comment section too.

Ceekay’s take on this issue,

is thought provoking yet very irritating for the “better than thou” attitude it projects.

Poppin’s Mom’s take:

I’m proud to be a mommy blogger. This is a mommy blog and this is the identity you’ll be seeing here. To be called Poppin’s Mom. Yes my identity begins and ends with my baby. I don’t have a life. I don’t give a damn what you think. So will you please leave us alone to our mushiness, nobody asked you to join the party!

Inbavalli asks a question,

 Just imagine somebody actually DOING it with our kids’ pics. Pretty horrifying. So what if we never get to know about it. Isn’t the very idea sickening?

What lies ahead

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் ஒக்ரோபர் 10, 2007

Boo has a wonderful post on how babies change your life. The post is old, but very relevant for my current condition. 

Here is an idea of what may be in store for me

Did your mother tell you that you were a difficult child, fasten your seat belts; you are in for a tough ride! You are never prepared for this! You never know what you are getting into irrespective of how many books you read, how many moms you speak to! You just have to take the plunge!

.

She is MY daughter after all. What else can I expect? I love you mom and I am sorry for everything. Please forgive me fast and redeem me before Ashu hits her teens!

Though the second set of lines are from a different post of Boo, I thought it is very relevant here.
