Cambodian cultural things for children

Postby FatherTime » Tue Jun 19, 2018 11:28 am

Now my office is telling me my child needs to be blessed by Buddha and I need to throw a one month old party. Umm, ok, what should I be doing for this?

What other surprises will I be expected to do?

Depends. Are you raising your child as Cambodian or from your cultural background? Do how you and your budget see fit.

Good one, I just forked 700$ for a nice goat and necklace replacing the one my mother in law bought for our second born that wasn’t to my liking.
But hey gold is gold and can be resold in lean times.
Very sober these days...
