I am sorry for posting this quite late. I had a lot of backlogs and it had coincide with Holy Week where I had to spend time back in the province. But as they all say, it's best to be late than never. Where do I begin my blog post about the bloggerfest? Thunderbird Resort in Binangonan Rizal where the bloggerfest was held was truly breathtaking. Imagine seeing the entire Metro Manila right before your eyes. It's also quite a long trip from Makati, where the shuttle buses had been waiting. It was a bit sad that my good friend Vix wasn't able to come. Her son Jared had a cold and of course, family comes first. So no matter how Mommy Vix would love to come and attend, she had to stay at home to take care of her little one. Even my friend Momo Adam could not make it that day, she was suffering from colds, cough and headache.

learning how to learn from example is important since certain moments change lives. But we must not follow anyone blindly. "Never idealize others," says author Leo Buscaglia. "They will never live up to your expectations," he warns. This is a constant fear of parents; that their children idolize celebrities or athletes who send them a mixed message.
Jan Faull, an educator and author, advises parents that at "age 10, a child is old enough to understand that people are complex and have many dimensions." She says that if an athlete a child admires has been in the news for troubling behavior, parents should discuss with their children why they look up to that person.
Acknowledge the player's amazing free throws, incredible record, and great charity work--but also point out bad off-court choices, " she continues. Children may be disappointed to find that a superstar has feet of clay, but they might also realize that their "hero" doesn't really deserve their adulation or emulation.
Without introducing a wholesome range of good examples for young people, "you are deferring to what's on television," noted Dr. Antonette K. Yancey, co-author of a study on young people and role models. Dr. Yancey advises parents to "make sure there's a diversity of images available in your home--in all books, magazines, artwork.
It takes a village to raise a child--is good but it needs to be extended. I say it takes a tribe to raise a child...If you don't pass on accumulated wisdom and experience, where does the child get it?
Growing up with a single mom, my aunts were hanging out by the windows of our home, looking after us kids in the street...I couldn't get into trouble by this network of aunts and uncles and cousins, and when you were caught, the speed of my relatives brought it to my Mom and Grandma for retribution before I even made it home.
It's known that children who have positive role models are more likely to succeed at school, have higher self-esteem, and are less likely to fall into substance abuse.
What they see is what you get... it is indeed difficult to be a good role model. Good luck!

Summer Giveaway Alert:
If you have been my follower since last year, you would know that I have actually started my blog in February 2010. But I’ve been too lazy to write anything until October 2010 where I’ve started to blog seriously. So as my post-blog anniversary gift to my loyal followers/friends, I’m having a summer giveaway.
Up for grabs: I’ll be giving away three tubes of Banana Boat Baby Sunscreen Lotion in SPF 50 to three followers (one tube each). I’d also be giving a set of Body Natur’s mid-warm roll on wax with 20 pieces of depilation strips to 1 follower. And the latest Bob Ong book for 1 follower. And I’d also be giving a Gift Certificate from 7107 islands cruise for an accommodation on an A Deck cabin with buffet meals onboard for two. The said gift certificate is valid until March 2012.

- Samsung Smart TV’s ultra clear panel enhances the color, contrast as well as all the other details to give an excellent viewing experience like no other.
- This smart TV has a feature of clear motion with its 240Hz motion rate making each viewing smooth and flawless in every frame. It even has a unique backlight technology combining the proprietary algorithms to lower the response time and doing so would mean a higher clear motion is produced.
- With Samsung Smart TV’s ultra clear panel, regardless if you are viewing premium quality 2D pictures or seeing incredible 3D, images are turned into astonishing quality with Samsung Full HD.
- Say bye-bye to blurring with its clear, precise TV experience. Plus, it has the Digital Noise Filter feature making sure it has everything you ever wanted in High definition resolution plasma TV.
