If you want your kids to remember the things that you teach them, be a role model first.

Have you noticed when I said “uh-um” to her instead of “opo” or “yes“? She adapted it right away! I should’ve said “opo” so that she would answer in the same manner. But I, too, sometimes forget. When I realized I was wrong, I corrected her by telling her:

What uh-um? What do you have to say?

I’m proud that she remembered and said opo afterwards…

  2. grabe Mitch, ikaw ba yung nagsasalita sa background? parang terror ang dating ng boses mo, medyo nasindak ako. πŸ™‚

    you know what I observed, ang galing na ni Deye maghawak ng spoon at grabe mag simut ng ice cream ha.

    nga pala, ASAP yang pinapanood mo noh?

    Ako nga yun hahaha! That’s why D always tells me I have a sungit voice and tone daw when I speak. :p Pero di naman ako galit nyan normal na yan sa akin. :p

    Pero dati lefty sya, lagi lang namin nireremind na dapat kanan, ayan nakuha din. Malinis syang kumain kasi maarte.

    Oo, ASAP nga kagabi nyahahahaha! Alam na alam ah!

  3. Ahh the Opo word. I am Cebuano and Opo is an alien word. My parents who were Tagalog never taught us to say “opo”. My relatives thought we were rude. hehe. Yes parents are role models. I hate it when my husband curses because the girls follow.

    My friend was telling me about that too, she’s from Surigao. Sabi nya nga wala daw opo sa kanila, basta daw kelangan pag sasagot something like “Oo, Ma”. Sa amin kasi dapat ganyan otherwise… :p Sermon!
