Bed Time


Recently T has been going to bed late. In effort to convince her to go to bed earlier, I told her I would take away her playtime if she goes to bed late.

Me: T, if you go to bed late, you will lose play time the next day.
T: Why?
Me: Because there are only 24 hours a day.
T: I won’t lose play time then.
Me: Why?
T: I’ll just be losing bed time.

I am Dr. Esther HioTong Castillo. I am Panda Mom. I'm a biracial sociologist mama with a 4 year-old daughter. Four years ago, my complicated birth and the sea-change in my career and family had thrown me into the downward spiral of depression and anxiety. Now, I'm sharing my story and writing my way to health and wellness at the intersection of trauma, intergenerational trauma, family, and parenting.
