Instant gratification is one outcomes of today's fast-paced world.

In a blink of an eye, everything happens instantly:internet technology, instant food, instant messaging, digital access to entertainment, instant calls, etc.
When everything happens in a blink of an eye, there is no room for patience to develop.
Patience is one rare virtue, the generation of today has yet to learn.
That is including me.

As parents, it is quite difficult to teach patience and waiting or even taking turns to children. How can our children learn the virtue when there is very rare practice?

I, for one, is guilty for the lack of it.
I hate waiting.
I do not like the agony of prolonged gratification.

Right now, I know I am given the loooonggg chance to practice patience. And it is not easy.
It is never easy to wait, hope and let the days go on without the outcomes right away.

How about you?
