    Let kids be kids

    Let kids be kids.” This is what my husband tells me – all the time.

    We are opposite. I say no. He says yes all the time. I make rules. A lot. Here are a few:

    • Gadgets can only be used up to 9pm on weekdays provided they’re all done with their homework.
    • I allow them to be on Social Media but yes, I have all the access, all notifs go to my inbox.
    • Or they have to finish their homework first then they can go and play outside, in the condition that they should be home before the lamp post opposite the house turns on.

    You can’t blame me. He’s not here. What they become will definitely reflect on me and how I raised them. No, I am not trying to be a perfect mom here but I just feel it’s the right thing to do.

    On Encouraging Your Shy Child To Socialize

    This has been my question for the past 8 years “How do you encourage your shy child to step out of her comfort zone?

    Looking back at how my eldest was, I never thought we will go through this stage where I’d worry about her so much. She used to be a people person during her first 4 years but 8 years ago, there was a sudden change where she wouldn’t talk to whoever she is not familiar with, that included her classmates and teachers.

    Cosmetics Dentistry Procedure on Chipped Teeth

    It was around June last year when my daughter, Ishi, met with an accident at school and chipped her two front permanent teeth, which at that time had just grown. See image here of last year, while the below image was taken just before the procedure.

    A year later, when she’s already ready for the procedure, we once again contacted and visited Dra. Maggie Santos of Oradent Oral Care Dental Clinic, located at Baraca, Subic, Zambales

    How Parents Can Help Their Kids Avoid Cavities and Tooth Decay

    When you think of diseases and sicknesses keeping kids out of school, you probably don’t think of cavities and tooth decay. But anyone who’s been struck with a toothache knows how physically debilitating and downright uncomfortable they can be. Take a page from George Hatzigiannis and do everything you can to help your kids keep tooth decay and cavities at bay so they’ll have great smiles and have one less reason not to go to school and get a good education.

    Develop a Tooth Brushing Routine Habits are easy to develop and hard to break, so make sure all the habits your kids develop are healthy ones. When it comes to their teeth, they should brush at least twice a day and floss after every meal. While they might not like how much time this takes out of their day at first, express to them that their diligence is sure to pay off in their later years when their mouths aren’t filled with holes and signs of decay.
