To be parents is very challenging. Rearing our cherished possession can be a source of happiness and fulfillment but may sometimes be a source of heartaches. As parents, what can we do to care for our family or to improve in rearing children? I guess there is no easy way to be a successful parents. We have to face hardship in disciplining our respective children for them to be become a better individual.

I read an article entitled, SEVEN STEPS TO BETTER PARENTING, the advice is very reliable. I hope these steps will also be of help to you.

STEP 1: Seek Good Advice
A better way to seek advice is found in the Word of God

STEP 2: Create a Loving Home
Have a regular and quality time together as family to developed and maintain the love within (No TV watching please!). Tell your child or children that you love them and that they are important. It is also very helpful that married couples must spend time together alone to keep the romance in the marriage.

STEP 3: Exercise Your Authority
This involves discipline. Be authoritative yet loving. This means that parents need to be supportive of their children yet maintain firm limits. Not too lenient not excessively harsh.

STEP 4: Define Family Rules and Enforce them Promptly
Have a simple and short written household rules that we feel our children need to obey. Review such rules regularly and explain that punishment will come in if refuse to comply. Make sure that the punishment is reasonable and we are willing to enforce it.

STEP 5: Establish and Maintain Routines
Establish a habit to eat one meal a day together and discuss day's activities or laugh together.
While children are very young set a regular and firm bedtime. Such bedtime must be pleasant. Create a relax bedtime such as telling your child what you did while they are at school and ask them if they want to tell you some of the things they did in school. Or we can also read to them.

STEP 6: Acknowledge Your Child's Feelings
Allow children to pour out their positive and negative feelings. After they pour out, correct the negative feelings. This will help develop trust between parents and children. Parents should not always or habitually contradict their children's feelings. Otherwise, children will start to doubt their ability to feel and think of themselves or will not open up their true feelings.

STEP 7: Teach by Example
Words oftenly imparts information. Actions teach. This does not mean that parents should act perfectly, rather, strive to be good. If we fall short like making a bad decision which affected the chilren, never hold back from saying "SORRY". We, parents, need to apologize if we made a mistake. This will help the children to apologize when they make mistakes.

There you have it!

I Cannot Sleep

I cannot sleep because my princess has a fever, cough and colds again. Adding to my worries is that she is having a nose bleed. Actually, she a fever last Friday to Sunday and gone last Monday. By Tuesday, she was already OK and went to school. She fell asleep at 7 pm, so by the time I went home she was sleeping. But when I kissed her, I noticed that her temperature was not the normal temperature she had. So I grab the thermometer and check her temperature. She had a 38.2 degrees Celsius. I told my hubby about it and we decided to wake her up to drink her medicine. After an hour or so, she again woke up and shouted, "Mama, blood!" Her nose was bleeding! I guess it was due to her fever. Since it is still dawn in our place, I am just watching her. By the time the clock hit 9a.m we will be going to her doctor. I hope nothing serious about her. I hope it is just a a mild flu since most of the children in our place are getting sick due to the sudden change of weather.

It makes job, researches easier and it restores data and execute list of instruction. I guess most household nowadays, have computers. These are really helpful in doing researches and assignments or tasks at home.

Before, the only computer available are desktops. Desktop are personal computers use in a single location. People dreamed of having to carry a computer everywhere they go. As years went by, the packaging of computers are getting compact and lighter.

With the advent of technology, laptops, notebooks, netbooks and ipod touch came to exist. It functions as personal portable computers. You can use such computers anywhere you go and can easily access the net anywhere as long as network is available. Although all such computers are portable, those have distinct specification or function.

It has a rechargeable battery if fully charge, can be use for 2 to 3 hours. Laptops and notebooks are frequently used by students, business owners and the like.

These stuffs are ideal for all persons who are constantly travelling and needs to access the net or the web without hassling themselves to bring bulky laptop.

Worried for my Sisterhood

My elder sister resides in Davao City. She is pregnant with her second yet first baby. I say second yet first baby because she lost her first born after carrying him for nearly 7 months. She was devastated then. After mourning with her first baby boy, she got pregnant again. So another new member of the family will be coming soon. We are happy but at the same time worried because we know that anytime this week her bag of water gonna blast and she is far from where we are. My mother left last Monday to be with her. Having our mother besides her neither a relief. I remember when my younger sister gave birth and was having her labor pain, my mother was also crying and acting as if having her labor pain too. So as when I gave birth too. But what can we do, mothers will always be mothers. No matter how we grow old, in their eyes we are still their babies! I know the feeling because I am also a mother too. I cannot imagine myself to see my princess getting married and gosh! having her labor pain! Grhhhhhhhhh! So much for that.

I hope all is well with my sister and to her baby.

Summer Camp

Summer means vacation! It is a time for hiking, parties and going to places such as beaches. It is also a time to have a break from school works and assignments. In our place, people usually spend their summer on beaches or pools and some do visit their loved ones and relatives in other places.

Last summer, I enrolled my daughter in a Learn to Swim Summer Camp. She had instructors who had taught her how to float and how to perform the various swimming styles. Now she already know to swim. Actually, there are various Summer Camps in our place but I preferred swimming camp since my daughter loves the water but does not know how to swim.

Summer camps are very useful in the well being of every child. They can meet new friends from different background, schools and ages. It is also a way for them to learn new things and practical ideas. Plus, it does help the children to develop their Emotional Intelligent Quotient (EQ). Such summer camps do not only provide benefits for the children but it also help to build stronger family ties.

If you are looking for summer camps for your child or for your whole family, try Yovia. They are offering various summer camp events.



Transformer 2

We have watched last Friday Transformer 2 Revenge of the Fallen. I can say it is better than Transformer 1. The effects are so amazing. It was a very thrilling movie and at the same time funny.

My daughter was disheartened when she saw that Optimus Prime died.

So to those who have not watch this movie, watch it!

See the trailer!

How helpful are directories? Are they really helpful? What is a directory? What is its purpose? Directories make our search easier since it organizes files, numbers, database, services and etc in an organized manner. Take for instance; just imagine yourself without a phone directory. I bet you will have a headache in finding numbers for homes, commercial, industrial, office or establishment and the like. Now, let us go to a larger scale. How can we find a systematic topic that interest us or research some subject matter without a web category? You will surely break your head in finding useful and arranged information in the topic you are researching.

Many people nowadays are very thankful for having directories online. They could find the subject matter they wanted. Others are also pleased to include their sites in the directories for people to read or visit.

Actually, a web directory is neither a search engine nor a list of web pages base on keywords; rather it is a list of web sites that are arranged categorically and sub-categorically. The category is based on on the whole web site. There are various types of directories. Most directories are of general in nature. One of the best examples of general directory is Yahoo! Directory, which is freely available to all. Another is the DMOZ. Some directories are limited since such directories are constraint in a certain region or concentrating to one or two languages or may be designed for specific sectors. Some directories are automated submission web directories and some are human-edited directories, such as SEO friendly web directory. Whatever type of directories are available in the World Wide Web, one thing for sure, it facilitate easy access and useful information to people around the world. It even assists to people to shop in the web.

What Will You Do?

What will you do if you will find out that our child was being punished in school for misbehavior. Will you get mad? Will you talk to the teacher or what? Will you get mad if the teacher punished your child? I guess it depends upon the degree of the offense and the degree of the punishment.

Last night, as I was talking to my daughter, I got to know that one of her teachers punished her because she playfully threw a stick to her teacher. So the teacher got mad and let her faced the wall. I do not know as to how long she faced the wall. Actually, it slipped her tongue when she told me about it. I asked her, why did the teacher punished her? She told me, she is afraid that I will get mad at her. And I said, "no I will not get angry unless you lie. I would be happy to know from you rather than me talk to your teacher or I will get to know of her misbehavior from other people." And so she told me of the details. Even though I got mad but I kept my promise. I have not shown her that I was angry neither did I spank her because I believe if similar things happens, she will already keep it from me. My husband and I see to it that she hide nothing from us. And so I was able to talk and apologized for the misbehavior of my daughter. And the teacher told me that it was okey. Actually my daughter felt sorry and she did apologized.
