My twins have learning difficulties. They attended day care and 2 years of sped. I was under the impression na although non graded sila may record at nagmomove up. I just found out recently na that was not the case. Medyo magulo school na yun parang kanya kanya silang rules. Now my kids are 7 years old and almost able to catch up. My question is ang day care service ba can be considered kindergarten? Please help. I am really confused and wondering if i screwed up really bad.

Tweens and Teens / 12 year old with very poor listening skills
« on: January 20, 2016, 04:54:24 am »
I believe my son does not mean na maging matigas ang ulo at ayaw sumunod. It feels like he really does not understand me at times. If i give him for example a multistep instruction he will only understand the 1st one. Is this just a phase na medyo confused o do i need to get him help? I already have two sons with special needs  am i just being over vigilant? I worry kasi kung pano siya makacope sa high school if he can't follow simple instructions.

Other Relationships / husband's ex sent me a friend request on facebook
« on: September 12, 2014, 08:35:26 am »
if i can remember correctly she first sent me a message nung july. then sent me two friend requests after that and a couple of messages. nangangamusta lang naman saying na ang dami nang magagandang nangyari. i am just puzzled as to why she is friending me di naman kami magkakilala before or even after their break up. i can understand why someone would check on their ex boyfriends's fb page, even i am guilty of that. pero to go as far as send a friend request to his wife di ko magets kung bakit pa. would it be rude if i just ignore her?

Special Occassions / church wedding after civil...
« on: February 02, 2014, 05:27:11 pm »
we have been married for 13 years na with 3 kids but still we want to get married sa church kasi catholic kami. I really don't like attending weddings much less being the bride. ewan ko ba I have something against being the center of attention but I do want  God's blessing. if we get married in church need pa ba talaga sundin lahat ng ceremonies. merun pa rin ba dapat na entourage saka sponsors and the like? should I wear white pa ba di ba akward na yun since 3 na kids ko? I want it to be special pero not too expensive since we do have a lot of financial obligations. suggestions on where to buy cheap but tasteful gown or formal dress fit for a wedding? suggestions on unique but affordable giveaways? suggestions on invitations. I love DIY stuff so feel free to post pictures. thanks so much in advance.

Family Fun / new year events for kids suggestions
« on: December 06, 2013, 04:46:28 pm »
we used to live in Makati but after my twins were born three years ago ditto na kami sa liblib na province. we're planning on taking the kids to manila to welcome 2014 para ma experience naman nila ang sibilisasyon  ;) any suggestions on where to go and sights to see, yung tipong mura lang if not free admission. mababaw lang naman kaligayahan ng mga anak ko since wala naming mall dito sa lugar naming (really). yoko naman kasi na maubos lang yung Christmas bonus sa ilang araw na libutan lang. I have already read the article on 100 Christmas attractions so aside from those mentioned ano pa mga sis ang suggestions niyo? TIA

Other Relationships / Nursing home thoughts...
« on: December 02, 2013, 07:43:11 am »
I'm just wondering why it's perfectly alright na ang bata Iwan sa yaya pero if you leave your parent sa caregiver parang ang walanghiya mo nang anak? We're not yet in this situation naman pero my father has a degenerative neurological disorder that will need full time care later on. Masama ba akong anak for thinking that I don't want my kids to see their grandfather drooling all over himself, at least not day in day out. Kasi right now my father is still superman to them and I want them to remember him that way. My memory kasi of my Lola is my annoyance every time I had to deal with her pooping in our bedroom. Kung ano man happy memories merun kami di ko na maalala because of all of those little hiccups. Am I making any sense?

Sexuality / never had an orgasm with my hubby.
« on: November 02, 2013, 07:36:42 am »
I have been married for 12 years and never pa akong nagclimax. don't get me wrong I do enjoy having sex hindi lang talaga ako nag oorgasm not even close. I have orgasms when I do it on my own pero lately after three kids kahit self help orgasm parang di na rin bonggang bongga tulad ng dati. I feel that I am no longer that sensitive down there. mga mommies nag iisa lang ba ako sa dilemma ko na to? may hope pa kaya for me?

Home / Feedback on profriends developer?
« on: April 14, 2013, 06:32:38 pm »
We started paying for our house in Lancaster estates over a year ago. We are having communication issues with them, they don't answer emails and inquiries tapos pag sumagot makakaiba pa ng sinasabi. May nan gaming may 2013 turnover tapos Nung nag follow up kami 0% pa daw construction sa November pa daw. I am getting nervous kasi sa dami ng bad feed backs sa kanila na imbestigador pa sila di ba. Ang Hirap kasi while we are paying them nag rent pa kami and ang pinaka worry ko safety ng family ko kasi Baka nga substandard quality ng houses nila. Feed backs please good and bad. I want to know what we got ourselves into.

Other Relationships / How to deal with noisy neighbors
« on: April 14, 2013, 06:16:35 pm »
We have no firewall like those in the city it's a barely there chicken wire fence. I am trying so much to be patient. For the last six months merun sila inuman at sugalan on their yard and when you combine alcohol with gambling sa away ang uwi Kung Hindi man maingay pa rin at wala silang  oras minsan 7 am till 2 am. Ngayong election time natigil siyempre papapogi kala ko matatahimik na kami. 2 days na ngayong nagvivideoke from 6 am till 3 am San ka pa? NASA open space pa sila ha at dalawa ng dipa lang layo sa room namin. La silang pakialam sa ibang Tao kasi feeling nila Sobrang powerful nila kasi mahilig silang kumabit sa mga pulitiko. Hay I feel so depressed right now. All I want is a nice place for my kids to grow up, Hindi naman ako mahilig makipagtsismisan o manira ng ibang Tao, I try to be friendly and civilized with my neighbors but still keeping boundaries. I try to be very considerate why can't other people do the same?

nowadays with FB it's so easy to keep in touch with people from every part of your life. pero sometimes i feel embarassed to keep in touch kasi most of them are very successful in their fields na being doctors and lawyers and wives of business tycoons. but me i am a SAHM, don't get me wrong i like staying at home with my kids but i can't help minsan na mainggit sa kanila because they have been around the world while i have not even left luzon, I barely even leave the house. they have their huge houses and fancy cars while i don't have a cent to my name. i sometimes peek at their fb accounts, gathering the nerve to hit add as a friend but i can't help but see how amazing they look and how i have aged considerably as i have battled with depression. there are times when i just want to crawl under a rock. but i know my kids deserve better than a mom who hides from the world...

Other Relationships / What did your mom teach you about being a mother
« on: November 29, 2012, 09:18:20 am »
Sometimes I feel ill equipped to be a mom kasi I grew up with nannies. Even when she's there she lets my father deal with me. She's not the kind to change dirty diapers and such. She never went to one school event not even my graduation. I have never seen a picture of us together, at least not one where she is holding me. All I can remember about her is when she gets me in trouble with my dad because she would cry about something I said or did no matter how trivial it is. So growing up I learned to stay away from her so I would not accidentally hurt her "feelings". The one time I ever came to her was when I was in high school and I told her I had a bf. she told me not to tell my dad. And when my dad found out she totally denied ever knowing anything about it and made me a liar. So never again did I open up to her about anything. I think I never trusted anyone again after that, not even my father because he only found out about my bf by reading my diaries. That's the reason I feel that I'm emotionally bankrupted. I don't let anybody get close to me. I'm just afraid that my kids will eventually pay the price for that. I guess if my mother taught me anything, it is to make my children my priority, coz I never felt I was even in her radar.

Real Parenting / My son lies all the time.
« on: November 27, 2012, 07:49:26 pm »
I need your advice. I don't know how to deal with my 9 year old son anymore. He lies all the time, even about little things. I used to be able to tell when he's not telling the truth pero ngayon napaninindigan na niya. I would understand Kung may nagawa siya mali at natatakot siya mapagalitan  but he outright makes up stories. One time he said na la pasok kasi may meeting mga teachers yun pala tinatamad Lang siya. I have been a SAHM since he was two kaya I'm really surprised sa laki ng pagbabago niya.

i have always been flat chested and i was ok with that nung single pa ako katwiran ko take it or leave it pero when hubby admitted that he likes big breasts and can't help but stare at them i was really hurt and insecure. especially now that we have three kids and my body has changed a lot lalo ako nainsecure. i am afraid that he will cheat on me again

i was raised by yayas and had a hard time with emotional connection when i was growing up. even now i don' feel connected to my mom. so i vowed to myself that i will not let that happen to me and my kids. pero lately i've been feeling down kasi i feel pressured to work, parang people are looking down on me because i am a stay at home mom, what hurts the most eh yung mom ko pa madalas mag pressure sa akin, she keeps comparing me to my former classmates na kesyo doctor na daw o kaya napadala na parents sa abroad. di naman mayaman si hubby kaya we're just making ends meet pero di ba mas important ang kids more than any material thing? i feel so unappreciated and disrespected. :'(
