在職爸媽家務育兒分工不均?
Working Parents Unequal Division of Responsibilities at Home?

雙職家庭的爸媽都要外出工作,
有些家庭會選擇聘用外傭或鐘點傭工做家務,
有些家庭則會選擇父母分工,
各自負擔某些家務。

假如能平均把家務分成兩份就最好了,
可是家務很難以數量計算的。

分工不均,
很容易令較重責任的一方感到難受,
久而久之,
可能會引起衝突,
甚至影響夫妻感情。

假如你和伴侶也面對相似情況,
有甚麼方法可以解決?
以下是一些建議,
希望能給大家一點啟示。

Music is the Foundation of Learning

Our fifth episode of “Parenting Talk Series” is another interview that every parent of young children should watch, whether you’re in HK or anywhere else in the world. Our topic is about how music is the foundation of learning for children. As parents, we all know that music is important for children such as being told to listen to music when the baby is in the womb to using music to put them to sleep. However, a lot of parents do not really know the benefits of how music is the foundation of future learning for children. So, we brought in Crisel Consunji, trained early childhood educator and founder of Baumhaus, Hong Kong’s #1 Kindermusik program for many years running, to explain to us how children learn using music with specific examples and tips on what parents can do at home to create an enriching learning environment through music for their kids.

侍產假對家庭有多重要?
How Important is Paternity Leave to a Family?

傳統社會,不論是香港還是西方社會,
媽媽都是家中主要的照顧者,
懷孕的是媽媽,
生孩子的是媽媽,
餵哺母乳的是媽媽。

但爸爸可以參與其他育兒的工作,
例如替寶寶換尿片、洗澡、與寶寶玩等。

如果爸爸在寶寶出生後沒有任何假期,
未必有時間分擔照顧寶寶的工作,
自然會依賴另一半照顧孩子。

侍產假是近年家庭友善政策的熱門話題,
究竟侍產假對家庭有甚麼好處呢?
