Dr Alice Green
Dear Cathy: I think youre a good mother. You love your children, so you hope they all be able to become famous or successful people one day. But you should think about their feelings. Theyre always busy with their schoolwork and other talented classes. They have no time to do things by themselves .they have no freedom to relax themselves. Youll find it difficult for them to plan things for themselves. If you give them a bit more time to themselves, theyll be happy and thankful . I hope youll become a wise and helpful mother.
