When you’re a mom of two or more kids, you’ve probably had your share of breaking up fights and wondering if you’re doing it right. Surprisingly, for parents Saab Magalona Bacarro and Jim Bacarro, they have never had to deal with fights between their children, Pancho and Vito.
In their vlog, The Magulo Na Bacarros, Saab explains that both Pancho and Vito are not yet at that age where they think the world revolves around them, and they don’t understand why they need to share or take turns. And as parents, Saab and Jim don’t force them to do so.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Instead, they “divide and conquer” whenever there’s tension between brothers, giving them time and some space apart. Saab says that this works for her and Jim, and they want to keep the peace as much as possible.
“They don't really fight. As parents, we try to keep it that way as much as possible. Especially at their age, we know that they don't really grasp the concept of sharing and taking turns right now,” the mom shares.
Saab says that both brothers are naturally patient and loving towards one another, and it’s just natural that sometimes things will happen that will annoy the other sibling.
She reveals, “Pancho is generally patient with Vito but he does get annoyed when Vito gets very hyper and noisy. Sometimes he will try to reach out and squeeze him and hahampasin niya 'pag nainis siya so we have to make sure that doesn't happen."CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
With Pancho in therapy, Vito is his kuya’s number one cheerleader. Not only that, the younger Bacarro is as patient as he is kind. Saab says, “Vito is super duper patient with Kuya unless, you know, Kuya is playing with something, and then Vito has to have that toy. But generally, Vito is Kuya Pancho's biggest cheerleader."
Pancho and Vito are lucky to have each other as siblings, and we can’t wait to see this pair of best friends grow up— they’ll have each other’s backs no matter what!
Jim Bacarro shares how Pancho was able to defy the odds here.
