Look Who's Blogging Now...

Can a 10 year old handle blogging? Yes, I promised to monitor all his cyber foot prints, so don't worry.

I have found that blogging is good training for children.
- It makes my kid conscious of writing correctly. Especially in these jejemon times, that is a big help.
- He will learn good manners and how to treat people correctly in the net.
- He will also learn to be cautious about the boundaries of the net world.
- Most importantly, he gets lots of practice of how to organize information in his head. It's his inherent skill, fixing data neatly in his brain, but this is a great exercise.
- Plus we have another thing we can sit down together for, to think, organize, laugh, and just... hang.

I wish my teen would be interested in blogging because of the many benefits I mentioned above. However, he is not interested.

But you know how siblings go. what one has or does, will definitely pique the interest of the others.

I hope it'll be a long term thing, this blogging of his. I hope he'll learn to love writing.

That's great. Hope he enjoys blogging. It's really a great way to enhance his writing skills.

Kids in this generation are so tech savvy. My son is turning seven a few months from now. He wants his own laptop as a gift. :)

Diliman Preparatory School QC Rocks

Summary: This is a School Review, based on our family's experience.

If you are looking for an excellent school in Quezon City for your elementary or high school children, Diliman Preparatory School along Commonwealth offers up-to-date competitive curriculum in Mathematics, Sciences and Reading. They also have excellent extra-curriculum activities that will help give your children a holistic education.

Last week, at my son's academic achievement awarding ceremony (he got the no.1 honor in class again, yay! Good job, son!), the CEO of the school talked to the parents about the achievements of the school for the year, and the changes for next year.

To be quick about it, this year, Diliman Preparatory School:
- started with the Singaporean Math curriculum
- used the very new Learning by Design Reading program (it's a research-based and assessment-based reading curriculum)
- I noticed they introduced Robotics this year
- There are more changes I approve of but I won't list …

Another birthday...

I can't believe my teen is now 15!

I saw my old post about Isiah's birthday in 2008 and wow... time does fly.

Well, Isiah's 15 today and things are still quite smooth sailing.

No honors in school this year, but that's alright.
He is passionate about his music more than ever. I admire that he regularly sets aside time to study and practice music on his own.
He is not as relationship-crazy or girl-crazy the past months, I wonder why.
He is totally into new-age yikies like meditation and chakras.
Seems like he is generally enjoying his school and friends.

I do bare my fangs for him mostly over his chore of washing the dishes, but that's about it. Yeah, boring.

But for this kind of boring, I am totally grateful. Yay.

Happy birthday son. Thank you for honoring my life with your presence. Love always,

You Know They've Grown Again When...

I've never done this to my kids, but some parents tell their kids "If you're bad, I will go away."

I knew my 10 year old has grown again when I told him before my night out, "If you're going to be so difficult, I will stay in and cancel." Watch me watch you the whole night.

Yeah, that pretty much got him behaved. I was able to go out. ;-)
