During the year of 2020, in one of the visual facilitation courses, I get to know Lamer from Chengdu, China. She is a woman that loves to share the inspiration of visual elements, from the case study of parenting sketchnoting till planning, supporting visual related courses, i always can see her active involvement.
And i still remember, when she helped me out for one sharing, her delicate mind, strong logical thinking, strong passion very inspired me.
这次的文字访谈了解到原来Lamer 目标感很强，自小成长经历很简单。但是原始家庭的价值正直善良，也在后来的职业旅程里秉承这样的信念 – 赤子之心，
From this article interview, I get to know her deeper. Despite she is a goal oriented person, her childhood is very simple with a family that focuses on integrity and kindness. And she continues this pure kindness heart into her career.
For her, taking responsibility for her own things and creating ease for people is a sign of discipline as well, and this indirectly brings out the value of “ do your own best, then you can help others happily”.
Being unselfish or altruism is her gene especially when it comes to giving and receiving. We feel the love naturally when we start being generous.
One of her experiences is helping her daughter’s friend to cure her cold, Lamer shared her tips such as how she brings her child to swim in the winter time, the secret of training the strong and healthy body to the mum. All these helping and sharing really benefits the mum. This is such an amazing thing, by sharing wholeheartedly we help to build other healthy children and family. This mindset helps to remove the egoism and also give others the opportunity to give. This time of balance give and take relationship really warms my heart, and this is how Lamer practices as well.
I guess the keyword is compassion, when we hold the compassionate heart, we not just learn, receive from others and also help others in the right way. Like the ocean, have the tolerated heart , living a lifestyle of being sincere and kind to others in this lifetime.

亲子绘图如何应用到日常/工作/家庭生活中？ How does Lamer use parenting sketchnote in her life/career/ family life?
For Lamer, she enjoys using creative ways to coach her children to finish the homework. They even have the habit of preparing the poem in advance since morning, they not just memorise but also use visual thinking and sketchnoting to express the meaning of the poem at night.
This habit helped the children to build her own awareness of visual expression, and started to learn how to draw different expressions of stickman. When the dad joined their study session, they would prepare an empty wall to do sketching anytime. They even make use of the wall for the discussion, from understanding and poem till present certain events and emotions, they already used to use a sketchnote to present.
During the process, not only is it simple yet it is a happy growing journey with kids beside developing visual ability.
Beside that, they even do family introduction for family gathering. At work, not only for reporting and creating important sentences, she also likes to use a paper to present her idea visually, not just attract attention, but also easy to organize the information for future use.
