    BBC Dad

    A clip that has gone viral across the world shows a professor in a BBC video interview talking about North and South Korea when his 2 children (4 and 9 months) wander into his home office, and his wife bursting in to quickly move them out in a bid to salvage the situation.

    Parenting is a marathon

    Here’s an interesting read at TGC by Chap Bettis, about running a marathon and the parallels, similarities to lessons on parenting.

    Parenting is like a marathon. Before the race you are fresh and rested. You start with excitement. But this is not a sprint. There are painful moments. There are times you hit a wall and think you can’t keep going. But one day, it’s over. Infants are grown. Bedrooms are empty. The house is quiet.

    Summary:

    1. The race requires endurance.
    2. Running with others gives strength.
    3. Encouragement makes a big difference.
    4. You will be given needed resources at the right time.
    5. You aren’t competing with others.
    6. Others who care about you are watching.
    7. It’s all about the joy of finishing well.
    8. Keep on running

    Preemies are babies born prematurely, often having to struggle to stay alive. Most of these preemies stay at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or Special Care Nursery for weeks to months before they are ready to leave the hospital to be at home with their families. World Prematurity Day is celebrated on 17 November every year, a day when we honour all our Superhero preemies, for their admirable strength in their journeys of survival and growth. Together with their parents, we proudly present some of our KKH Superhero preemies! Check out their Superhero traits! #kkhearlybird #preemie #worldprematurityday
