Learning Tagalog

Yes, I am having a hard time teaching my youngest daughter to understand Tagalog or speak our mother tongue. I guess it is my fault because I let her speak in English when she was a little and did not give any attention that somehow it can affect her study. I just realized it now when I transferred her to this school.

Unlike in her previous school, the teachers in Filipino will just translate the question during the exam to her. However, with this school since it is a standard school, they will not adjust for their students. They need to understand and at least answer it in Tagalog the best that they can. My youngest daughter was not able to understand anything on their essay question and so she wrote, “I could not understand the question”. When I learned about it, I was so pissed since we did our best to study the night before. She was able to answer with multiple choice and fill in the blank except the essay and their exam is almost essay.

Thus, last 2 nights we were doing extra effort with it. I let her read “Ang pagdating ni Magellan sa Pilipinas”. Of course, since she could not understand every word of it, she resisted everything. I explained but it was not enough, I need help! I already speak Tagalog to her, there are words that she was able to understand but still could not speak to it.

I research online what are the best ways to teach the kids in speaking Tagalog and I was able to find this video:

 

I’ll be checking this one later, I might be downloading some tutorial in you tube. I hope this could help.

Stop Fighting!

I was so ready for work but damn I need to wash the dishes from last night. I thought it was already taken care of by my eldest daughter or my niece when they went home last night but nope they did not. I wasn’t able to take good care of it last night because I was too tired and I felt like just a slight blown of the wind I will be knock out in no time. So right after Faith is done with her Kumon, I hit the bed right away.

I was so confident that Mj doesn’t have school and she won’t go out since she already went out yesterday for their P.E. practice, I was positive that somebody will watch after my youngest daughter. I know that Faith is already 10 years old and somehow can take good care of herself at home but I can’t let her since she have easy access in our computer and TV. I don’t want her to spend her day just in front of these two equipment, I am telling you, it would make her very hyper, the worst is it would make her imagination explore. I can’t let her watch or use the computer without us around, you know how kids can be curious of some “things

I was about to prepare for work but Mj woke up all so sudden and said she have school and blah blah blah. I was so surprised and I was so mad, she just blurted out without explaining anything. I lose my temper, I gone mad and I was shouting already. I felt like a volcano ready to explode but Faith woke up and crying, she told me the reason why she woke up. Faith was awakened by my loud voice, she went back to the bedroom but I didn’t stop yelling at her sister. I thought she went back to sleep but to my surprised I found her crying while saying this word “stop fighting!”

I approached her and explained why I was so mad, she then answered that she could not help to think that I will disown her sister. With that her being said, I took a breath, let myself calm for a minute, and then went back to the living room where Mj is seated.

Understanding, sometimes we may think it is easy but the process is hard. You have undergo commotion, arguments even negotiation for us to be able to know the causes and the circumstances ahead. We may like it or not but we have to come up with a deal that will be fair to everyone involved. We may not be able to understand it at first but what matters most is that, we were able to decide, it may not be the best but it is agreed upon for both parties.

Putting Together a Memorable and Festive Event

When you are in charge of planning a party or celebration, you may at first fail to appreciate how much work is actually involved with it. You have to book the venue, hire a caterer, decide what music will be played, and shop for and find decorations to just name a few.

Rather than handle all of these steps by yourself, you might decide that you need help to put together an event that will be both fun and memorable. With a professional caterer, deejay, and party planner nj hosts like you can outsource the greatest tasks to people who are trained and experienced for handling them.

Choosing the Venue

One of the foremost tasks you have to take care of involves choosing a venue at which to hold the party. The type of venue you choose will need to match the type of celebration being held. For example, if you are planning a child’s party, you will want to hold it as a child-friendly location like the zoo or a skating rink rather than a nightclub.

The planner you hire will know what venues are most appropriate and available for the event. He or she can tell you what dates are open so you can choose the one that best aligns with your calendar. The planner can then book it for you and tell you how much of a deposit you must pay.

Food and Music

You also must decide what type of food and music to make available to guests coming to the party. As with the venue, these factors should match the age of the audience you plan to host. The planner can give you ideas about cocktails, drinks, entrees, and music selections if you are at a loss for either.

Putting together a memorable party or celebration calls for you to take care of every minute detail. You may lack the time and the experience needed to pull off a big gathering. You can outsource the most important tasks to experienced planners who can book venues, decide menus, and more.

About The Tooth Fairy

It was Mariel’s birthday celebration that we went out to eat at Vikings. Mariel was free since it is her birth month as long as there will be four of us to pay for the buffet. While they were still enjoying their food, Faith blurted out her opinion about Tooth Fairy. My apology to those who believe in Tooth Fairy, spare my youngest, she is just being opinionated.
