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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
