Wow, thanks mommies!

My daughter is 2 y.o. Actually, I "teach" my child mainly through media-- videos, except for weekends when we are in a classroom mode, hehe. And, in fairness, she can easily grasp things from videos. Naglagay nga ako dun ng video ng Summer Nights (Glee version), which she can sing now; and Frosty the Snowman, na sinasabayan niya some of the lines hehe!

I also have a friend (bestfriend, actually) who's a psychologist, and sabi din niya wag ipressure ang kids to learn. Actually, she doesnt advocate early schooling for toddlers, as in super perfect timing daw 4 y.o. (but that's besides the point).

Malapit nanaman nga ang Christmas, I came to a point when I thought of teaching my child a Christmas carol, para lang may panapat siya sa pinsan ko. Haha! But now I learned... :-D

Super thanks mommies!

Thanks so much KV's mom!

Yes, you're right. Thanks for helping me go back to my senses and realize that my child is perfectly on track. I know naman that my daughter is, but sometimes, minding other kids' development shadows the thought of where your child is right now-- like what she can do, how she paces, etc.

Sometimes, nagui-guilty din ako kasi my husband is just (plainly) very proud of our daughter. Like he's very amazed of the things she can do, not minding other kids. As in he's really focused on our daughter's abilities. Minsan nga nasabi niya "Mommy, let's not forget that our child is (just) 2 years old". Maybe he thought I'm going overboard na.  :P

Of course I don't mind your long response! I also got teary eyed on some parts of your message. On instances when I feel pressured again in the future, aside from closing my eyes and think of how amazing my daughter is, I'll re-read you reply. It'd really help! And yes, I know that Janice-Margaux teleserye. What a scary mom! Haha!

Hi moms!

I have a cousin who has a daughter the same age as my daughter (well, actually, my daughter is older by months). But, she has this ugali to brag about her daughter's developments and milestones in social sites -- and some of those, hindi pa nagagawa ng daughter ko:( I feel irritated about this, because knowing her, she's really mayabang and I fear that she's comparing her daughter's developments with mine. And since she openly shares this in social sites, I fear that my parents/ inlaws would also compare my daughter with hers. So as a mom, I feel the pressure of teaching my daughter of things she doesn't know, plus of course, I feel the guilt that I'm not really alloting enough time to teach her (I'm a working mom, and I usu. go home late. It's really weekends when I get to really bond and teach my daughter). But it's not that I'm disappointed with my daughter's development, actually, she normally surprises me and my husband of her new "stuff" (nagpapasiklab so to speak), and these are stuff na hindi namin tinuro sa kanya. Lately, she can spell her name already, and write it also!

Please advise moms, lately this has been bothering me!

Hi mommies! I'm also a mom of a g6pd baby. Ask ko lang, does anybody here tried nonfat yogurt on their kids with g6pd? I read skimmed milk has no traces of soya. Please help!

Yaya Solutions / House rules for yaya

Hi there mga mommies!

I have a 15 mo. baby. She's very active, and very receptive to what we teach her and what she sees. Since this is, I'm worried about yayas' behavior when we're at work-- do they speak bisaya, do they spank each other (even if joking), do they shout? I'm just afraid our baby might learn these manners. I'm thinking to pose house rules when we're not around, and I also prepared a TV schedule for our daughter (actually, just to make sure of what baby is watchning, we locked some of the TV channels).

Do you have rules for yaya, and how do you make sure they're abiding by the rules? Many thanks!  :)
