Always do your best
Teaching our children to always do their best and strive hard will make their lives better in the future. I will bear this in mind!
We learn through practice
This is so true! Practice makes perfect nga di ba? Just like teaching a child on how to tie a shoelace. With patience, they will learn to tie shoelace on their own.
I am here whenever you need me
Open communication and + sense of security are really important. These words of assurance will help children to openly communicate with their parents.
I think of you when we are apart
I have to tell my children that I think of them whenever we are away from each other. Nasanay na yata ako at sila din na nag-wowork ako ever since they’re born, kaya di ko ito masyado nasasabi sa kanila. Isang factor din siguro yung marunong na sila gumamit ng (landline) phone at nakakausap ko sila whenever they need something.
You make me so happy
Our bunso is the makulit na may great sense of humor in the family. He never fails to amaze us with his funny antics. Ate and bunso are both thoughtful, too. They kiss and hug us a lot.
You can change your mind
At home, we don’t impose – especially when it comes to extra curricular activities. If at the moment, Thea wants to learn how to play piano, but decides to join art classes instead when summer vacation comes, no problem. It’s perfectly fine with us. We will support her hobbies all the way.
You are beautiful
Of course! mana sila kayo sa akin eh. hahaha joke lang. Kidding aside, as parents, we should be the first one to believe in our children and assure them that they are beautifully unique individuals.
How did you do that
Asking them these make them feel that we are interested in what they do.
Children’s simple act of kindness and thoughtfulness should be reciprocated by saying Thank you.
You are really interesting
Arrgh! I’m sorry, I am (sometimes) guilty of saying the opposite lalo na pag paulit-ulit sila at maraming questions at pag may ginagawa ako.
So that’s it! I am grateful that author of the article for helping realize my shortcomings as a parent. I will do my best to be a positive parent. Parenting, really is a tough job and requires continuous learning and practice.
