Uncles and Aunties

A growing child needs an environment of discipline, love and support. Parents are often the main source of interactions and upbringing to the child and he is molded by the values parents impart on him. Yet a family without relatives to help the child grow is handicapped to an extent because uncles and aunties who have vested interest in the child's growth also help him realize that there is another world beyond his father and mother. His growth is that much enriched when uncles and aunties visit and share goodies with him or bring him out to play or have some fun.

The Persatuan scenario may not be exactly like what I've just painted but similar. The committee members are the parents and the rest of the association's membership are the uncles and aunties. Today I went round collecting membership forms as well as giving out some. I have different reactions, some positive some hesitant. Overall we have identified many members to participate in our inaugural meeting. I pray that it will be a good meeting. No, change that to a great meeting.
