President-elect Rodrigo Duterte will hold parents responsible if their kids are caught after curfew hours, reports say.

The child must be taken into custody by the police and the agencies concerned," he told reporters at the Hotel Elena in Davao City. For repeat offenders, "Then, go to the house to arrest the mother and the father for the crime of child abandonment," he added. (gmanetwork.com)
3. Assunta de Rossi dead-set on having a baby this year
Since her husband, Negros Occidental congressman Jules Ledesma, is stepping down as congressman this year, Assunta de Rossi really wants to work on having their own child. She said they both decided to not run for another government office to focus on family. The two tied the knot in 2002, and are parents to Jules' two kids from his late wife. Assunta is already 35, while Jules is 54 years old. "I have so many problems kasi physically. Hahayaan ko na lang yung doctor ko na lang umayos," she said. Her OB-gyn assured her that she can still get pregnant at her age. (pep.ph)
