Boys & Trains

Cars and trains are Aiden's favourite companions at home, on the road and he started requesting for these prints for his pyjamas too.  He would ask to play with his trains first thing he wakes up and right before he goes to bed.

I enjoy observing him putting the tracks together, sometimes struggling and I will encourage him to try again and take his time. He gets impatient at times and ask for help very quickly. Both Daddy Darren & I try to motivate him to give his best, before we guide him to achieve what he wants. He is much happier, and loves the sense of satisfaction when he manages to work on the tracks independently. I love seeing his eyes lit up when he completed a track route and have his trains run on them.

We recognize that it is important for us to teach him about giving his best shot before giving up on a task, so we don't step in immediately when he asks us for help, instead encouraging him and guiding him to complete the task.

Thanks to Daddy Darren, the boy gets to build creative, complex train routes and it is also a perfect bonding time for them.

What a smile on the captain's face.
Ready to go!

Let's load the cargo.
This is the way to do it.
Nice to see you Percy.
