Hello mga mommies, ask ko lang baka may mga mommies dito with their families who are overseas? Mas extra task kasi ang parenting in this case unlike if nasa Pinas. I suppose we all want to instill to our kids the basic and "good" Filipino values pa rin even if we are far from home like respect for elders, "po" and "opo" (if they are still speaking tagalog) and the like...How do you deal with it? Maybe we can share ideas...thanks po...

sis I think that is case to case basis. i have relatives who are in the US and some in canada. As much as possible they still bring up their kids filipino style and they even talked to them in tagalog. It's nice kc everytime they visit the phils. their values are still very filipino like but syempre since they live in the US and canada hindi maiiwasan na yung values nila ay maaafect ng culture kung saan sila lumaki. Especially once they started hangging out with their american and canadian friends.

we're currently based overseas and i could say na i raised my little girl well.  she would always say "thank you" and "excuse me".  when we dine out two weeks ago, she returned a toy given by one of the staffs.  they said she has such good manners.  even kapag nauwi kami for a vacation, people  notice na she's magalang, madunong sya mag-mano kahit hindi un uso dito :)

i guess it depends din on how you teach your child and your set-up at home.

naku nagwoworry din tuloy ako, maybe in less than 3 years time (hopefully) makarating na din family ko here in Canada. I plan pa rin na i-instill sa kanila ang filipino values although siyempre mahirap din kasi ma-adapt din nila ang culture dito. Like ko din kakausapin ko sila in tagalog kapag sa house, kahit na di sila magsalita atleast naiintindihan man lang nila para if ever we decided na magbakasyon sa pinas di naman sila magmukhang ewan..  ;)
So there's this boy who stole my heart, he calls me "MOM"
