My son is malingering in school, again. I was summoned by the school principal yesterday to visit her office. Before 5 in the afternoon I got there and I came to know that my elder son went to school for their testing day in civilian attire. He was sent home and was not allowed to take the examinations. I have not talked to him yet about this because he was not home yet when I came to the house. He slipped in maybe when I was in my room so I could not scold him. I only plan to talk to him. Scolding will not do any good. I hope he mend ways as he is graduating in high school.

My friend was right to always bond with children while they are young because there will come a time when they grow up that they will go their own ways. It is what my children are now. They are big enough that they have their own circle of friends. Later, they will have their own life and their own families. I always pray that they will grow up to be the good persons that they are.

My desktop is off for the weekdays. That is the rule in the house unless my sons have a research to make. On weekdays they can use the computer but only up to Sunday noon. I also make a close watch on my kids sleeping habit in order that they won't rise up late in the morning. They can watch tv but only until 9pm. When I will be away, my daughter takes my place in supervising them. I hope my sons grow up to be matured persons, soon especially my elder son who has been giving me headaches for the last two years already.

My son was prodding me to enroll in martial arts. Why, it is too late already because the opening of classes is very proximate already. He may have this next year. It would have been better if he knew about this a month ago. Anyway, my sons enjoyed the online computer games using my desktop. They even don't like to help me in bloghopping because they only wanted to play. Well, kids will always be kids. I am just happy that they stay at home most of the time rather than hang out with friends and go somewhere else.

A friend was enjoining me to become an online teacher. How can I? I am so busy already. I am a single mother, an employee and a blogger . Need I be more? I guess no more. I need extra money to augment my income to support my children's needs but I have to spend quality time with them, too. Being a single mom is quiet hard sometimes. Bills are soaring, prices of commodities are soaring  but somehow I keep to manage with the financial expenses. I once applied as freelance writer but since it took too much of my blogging time, I stopped. Somehow, my kids understand when I can't give them their wants immediately.

My brother complains of his son still bedwetting even at the age of 6. Well, bedwetting is common among young children. Most will outgrow the problem by age 6 to 8 as their bladders grow larger and bladder control improves. Bed wetting is rarely caused by urinary tract infection or emotional problems.

So, I told my brother to  limit the child drinks during the two hours before bedtime and to remind the child to get up during the night to urinate. It may help to provide a bedside potty chair and night light may help.  I also told him to reward the child for dry nights.

My children when they were babies then were sling babies.  I used to carry one of them around department stores, restaurants, and anywhere in the downtown area hands free. Since they only have a gap of five months, the other was carried by their nanny also in a baby sling. We could do our shopping for groceries, lift our luggages and board a public transport with ease.  It was such a great comfort to have a baby sling. 

How about you? If you have babies out there, let your baby be close to you, feel safe and secure as you go about your daily activities. You don't need to interrupt your household chores to pick up a fussing baby. All you have to do is pop your little baby into the HugaMonkey baby sling and go on with your tasks.  It is also very useful in your travel by plane or by train as it is really a breeze when a baby rides along in a HugaMonkey baby sling. You can carry your luggage and your ticket for inspection. Craddle your baby everywhere with comfort.Grab your good-looking baby carrier now! It is very afforable.

Do you know that giving birth to a baby through normal born delivery brings good benefot than caesarian born? Whenever a mother delivers i a normal way, the baby gets good bacteria from the birth canal of the mother that helps develop the immune system of the baby. Caesarian born babies do not have this, so they need extra.  My children are lucky because they were delivered through normal delivery.

The home is the foundation of child's emotional and intellectual learning. To parents out there, develop the intellectual capacities of your toddlers and kids by way of the Little Reader,  a downloadable software tool for parents and educators launched by BrillKids Inc. to teach children, four months and up, to read in an easy, fun and efficient way. This is an effective tool for me instead of letting the toddlers and kids view cartoon movies almost most of the time.

Press Release:

October 23, 2008 – BrillKids Inc. announces the launch of Little Reader HOME BASIC, a downloadable software tool for parents and educators who wish to teach children to read in an easy, fun and efficient way. Suitable for children aged four months and up, Little Reader enables users to easily create flash cards, using the computer as a powerful platform with which to educate very young children. Incorporating methods developed over several decades by experts in the early learning field in their product’s functionality and design, BrillKids’ Little Reader is able to take advantage of the right-brain learning capabilities of children during the critical early years. 

Following the success of their online community, BrillKids provides an answer to the needs of parents worldwide for a more convenient program with which to teach their young ones. Even with the burgeoning children’s product market filled with available educational videos, laminated flash cards, and pre-made slideshow presentations, none come close to providing complete customizable solutions for parents who want to teach their children in a more personalized way. “Little Reader is a groundbreaking program from BrillKids,” said KL Wong, CEO of BrillKids Inc. “Not only is it our very first software product to be made commercially available, it is also the project closest to my heart, having created it specifically for parents like me who could not find convenient ways with which I could create and personalize my little daughter’s flash card lessons. To know that Little Reader can put smiles on children’s faces when they see their parents’ pictures on the screen while being taught their first words about family is simply amazing.” 

Helping Parents Teach Their Children to Read 
Many parents have already witnessed the benefits of using the Little Reader program during the span of its three-month beta testing period. “I have thoroughly enjoyed using Little Reader - I thought I knew a lot about teaching reading to people of all ages - and particularly since I was a follower of Glenn Doman methods 40ish years ago,” said Amanda, a parent from Brazil. “That said - I have found Little Reader totally inspiring - it is very addictive, and it encourages the user to not only make use of the material provided in the program - but to create their own.” 

“My kids really love Little Reader,” adds Paola from California. “This software gives my children lessons they can relate to - their own body/family/toys/pets. And the fact that people from all over the world using any language - even dialects - can come together, share concerns and experiences, give one another support, and contribute to the whole is absolutely amazing. I can honestly say that I don't know of any other software that is as versatile, meaningful and enjoyable as Little Reader.” 

Making it Easy for the Busy Parent 
BrillKids also offers hundreds of free additional learning library files which Little Reader users can simply download through their online community – a balm for parents who do not have the time to create their own content. 

“In my very busy schedule as a working mother, I found Little Reader to be perfect teaching tool,” says Jane from South Carolina. “This program saves me so much time in preparing my teaching materials because it’s just so easy to use, turning ‘lesson time’ into ‘bonding time’ for my little Alyssa. The free additional library files are also fantastic – it’s so convenient to just download what I want, when I want them.” 

Created by Parents for Parents 
An overwhelming number of requests from parents worldwide spurred the creation of Little Reader, and BrillKids made it a point to take the development of this software closer to the hearts of those who inspired it to fruition through its customer-oriented forefront throughout the three-month beta testing period. The company took all suggestions and comments from an international pool of beta testers and integrated functions to satisfy what real parents need from an educational software program for young children. 

Little Reader’s release brings the company closer to their aims of enhancing the quality of life for parents and parents-to-be, helping them give their child the gift of early literacy.

Parenting is a very difficult task. Parenting means providing the children their physical needs, protecting them from harm and imparting them skills and cultural values. Raising and educating a child from birth until adulthood is a very undaunting process.  The children's foundation of education starts at home from their own parents and continues when the children receive formal education at school. Others say that the process of raising and educating the children not only starts from birth and childhood but also until adulthood. 

The manner in which the child is raised at home reflects in his social activities with others. That is why, it is very important that children are provided an atmosphere of peace and justice in family, where no one's dignity is encroached upon. It is also very important to provide the children a no-fear, no-threat, and no-verbal abuse environment. Despite the busy schedule of parents it is very much necessary to spend bonding times and share wonderful moments with children.

Don't you know that there is a new gadget invented that makes it easier for parents to pass on words of wisdom to their kids on a daily basis? Yes, there is a new gadget for this. If you visit Life Learning, it created a button that can sit on a desk, beside the coffee pot on the kitchen table or just about anywhere you pass during the day. When the button is pressed, it verbally relays secrets of life and words of wisdom to the children from some of history's greatest achievers. This is a perfect gadget that delivers motivational quotes at the touch of a button and is something parents have more to talk about other then the typical "How was your day at school?...fine" conversation. I wll try this one on my children. Try this on yours, too.

Have you found yourself drifting to sleep and somebody is asking you and your answers sometimes hit and most of the times don't? To the extent that you are already answering things that are out of context and you make yourself a laughing stock and you suddenly awaken to see your being laughed at for your silly answers? Yes, this happened to me today. My sons were laughing at me when i woke up. I feel stupid in front of my kids.

It is an irony that summertime is over here in the Philippines while it is only starting in the US. Supposedly, today was the first day of classes but due to the President's rationalization of holidays policy, the June 12 holiday was instead made today, June 9 as an extension of the weekends.  So, tomorrow will be the start of rush days.  Everybody is expected to wake up early, especially the mothers and students, and prepare everything to be early for school.

Some changes will have to be made in my and children's schedule.  After office, i shall have to be home to see to it that assignments will be made by my two sons.  And tutoring, too if they can't do their homeworks by themselves.  For my kids, they will miss their weekdays TV programs as i will ban TV viewing during classes days.  Friday nights until Sunday they can watch TV but only up to 5pm on Sundays.  I have to do this as part of instilling discipline on their study habits.

Temper Tantrums

Children often have temper tantrums when they are frustrated, want attention, or to get their own way. They tend to get more tantrums when they are tired, hungry or sick. My sons have their tantrums, too and when they do i usually go to my room and let time cool down my temper, too.

As a single parent, i learned that when my sons have tantrums i should stay calm. Getting angry doesn't help but prolong their tantrums instead. I dont like them to know that i have lost my control so i go to my room. After awhile i talk to them and try to know what tiggered the tantrums. It is indeed hard to be a parent. But, i know that i should not let tantrums change my behavior as a parent. I don't like them to learn that a tantrum is a way to get their own way.

Mother's Worries

Something worries me lately.  My sons are into the basketball fad.  A friend of them calls over the house and i was wondering who their friend was.  When i answered the call, i learned that the 19-year old boy friend of my 13 and 12 year-old sons is a school drop-out and has only a 3rd year high school educational attainment.  Gosh, i am composed  but i am worried that my sons might be having a bad influence friend.  I would appear bad to my sons if i tell them to stay away from this friend.  Lately, i knew that the boy is a suitor of my daughter whom my daughter turned down.  Its hard to be a mother to growing up adolescents especially the boys.  I should always be on watch over them, always.
