my daughter is in the learning process on understanding the concept of friend. but i’m not sure whether to emphasis on the concept now or later… or just let she experience herself.

this morning, i prepared breakfast and lunch box for my daughter. the statement of “this is not enough for my friends”… had really bothers me for a long time since last year. i began wondering the kind of friends she’s having? then, i started to nag / advice to her by saying that…

“you need to find a friend who likes you of who you are. not a friend who is taking advantage of you just because you bring her lunch everyday. i don’t mind you sharing, but i prepared this lunch box is for you and not your friend. i want you to have the energy to learn… i’m more concern about you… you may let your friend have a taste of your food but not get them full… i want you to get full, not your friend…”

was i too harsh on her? maybe she meant well… or i’m just being too protective of her… maybe i should just let her make some mistakes huh…
