I once have a boyfriend whose mom insisted that all her four sons must be home for dinner every single day. She is Cantonese and therefore, the best disciplinarian of all Chinese women. I really admire how she managed to get her sons to listen to her.

Remember – the dining table and room is the heart of the home.
