Inspiring Your Children through the Power of Social Work

Every parent wants to be an inspiration to their children. Every day, you try to be a good example for your children, acting as a moral compass so that they can make good decisions in their personal lives. Although no one is perfect, it is important to be constantly aware of your actions in front of impressionable children. If you are going to go into a career based on improving and enriching the lives of people who need the most help, your children are going to learn a lot of useful lessons as they grow up.
Parents who decide to go back to school often do so in an effort to increase their salaries while giving them more time to spend with their families. Going for your online masters of social work via the Rutgers Online program will not only enrich your life; it will give your children a look at what it takes to make the world keep going around. Show your family from an early age that making a difference is possible through consistent effort.

Leading By Example

You can’t tell your children that they need to be leaders and ambassadors for their friends and school mates if you aren’t giving them specific examples. Sitting down and paying the bills with your children looking on at the dining room table will help them to learn responsibility. Taking them with you when you go to renew your voter registry will show them how to exercise their rights. Going back to school for an online MSW will teach them many lessons in civility, respect, and actually, help them to appreciate what it is that they have at home.

Doing Good Things for Other People Makes You Feel Better

When you work with a specific set of people who have needs that are not being properly met, every step that you take to get them what they require should be considered a blessing for all involved. There are people who don’t know where their next meal will come from and children who don’t know if they will ever have a caring and responsible guardian. People with addiction issues can struggle with applying for jobs as well as staying sober. Whether your outreach efforts consist of asking clients about their personal lives or making strides to help them to meet more tangible goals, your children will see that it feels good to help others.

Showing How Making Sacrifices Pays Off

Not every person that you work with as a social worker is going to have the most positive results. Some will need more specialized help and others will simply disappear off your map right when you are in the middle of working on their cases. On the other hand, there will also be lots of examples of success beyond your wildest dreams. Those are the examples that you will want your children to pay attention to as hard work always pays off in the end.
If you want your children to be filled with pride when they talk about your career, consider taking on a job that focuses on others. Social work isn’t an easy profession, but it does come with benefits that cannot be described in words. Be someone who is giving and selfless if you want to raise healthy and well-balanced children.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
