    Pauleen could not be prouder of her 4-year-old daughter's latest achievement and took to Instagram to share her congratulatory message to Tali.

    Posting photos of Tali taken during her virtual moving up day, the celebrity mom wrote, "This little girl graduated Nursery today. I can't believe we survived 1 whole school year of online class!"

    Pauleen then expressed how much she's looking forward to Tali getting a feel of being in an in-person class setting. "I cannot wait for the day when she'll be able to bond with her classmates in person but I am grateful for the time we spent (and fought) during classtime! Congratulations Tali!" she shared.

    Having her fair share of online class struggles with Tali, the actress-host also acknowledged and gave credit to all the parents and guardians who "patiently guided all their children this SY (school year!)." She followed it with a shoutout to Tali's teacher.


    In the succeeding post, the Pauleen shared videos during the virtual school rites, including one where Tali's name was being mentioned. We could only imagine how proud Pauleen was during that special moment!

    Help Kids Through Blended Mode Of Learning

     Currently, the Philippine Department of Education (DepEd) has allowed more schools to implement face-to-face classes. However, attendance is not mandatory, and children still need to secure a waiver from parents before attending in-person classes. 

    Since the onset of the pandemic, DepEd reiterated that blended modes of learning or the approach combining the conduct of traditional in-person classes and online classes will remain in the foreseeable future.

    As online classes are here to stay, it does not hurt to keep tips on making them more manageable for kids and, in turn, for parents.

    Dr. Ann-Louise Lockhart says it's only natural for kids to encounter challenges in virtual learning, "especially if this is a new way of learning for them." A pediatric psychologist, Dr. Lockhart, shared several tips to make hybrid learning easier for kids in an article for PBS KIDS for Parents. Here are some of them:

    1. Be approachable. Listen and lend your time whenever your child expresses concerns or difficulties during classes. However, Dr. Lockhart advised parents to "listen without trying to solve their problems." Validate the uneasiness and worries they feel but also encourage them to be open-minded about the new experience.

    2. Acknowledge kids' efforts. A little pat on the back would be a good motivator for kids to rise above fear and anxiety over the new experience.

    3. Be calm but firm in the face of distractions. Getting a child to sit still for a couple of minutes is challenging already in itself. Getting them to focus on a screen while distractions surround them inside the house can be a tiring battle. But nagging at them angrily would only add fuel to the fire and inflame their anxiety over online classes.
