what usually happened or done by your kids when your house has no electricity supply for hours?

like my kids, they will not sit still and make lots of noise. sometimes i couldn’t even control them. they will start to fight over everything… from holding to a flash light to choosing which pillow they want to cuddle for their bedtime.

my neighborhood was blackout for 8 hours during the night last week. and as expected, my kids went crazy because of the warm room temperature. remembering from what i read from Mr. Zaid’s book, i managed to control them and make them sit quietly throughout the period. i played games with them. just a simple guessing game like name any animals that starts with the letter ‘a’ and so on. surprisingly, they participated in the game and had fun.

aside from making my kids behave during the blackout, i managed to educate my kids the spirit of winning or losing in any games. so, we as parents need to equip ourselves with knowledge and be creative as well.
