Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes.

Today : Sharing


When we were kids, my mom would usually buy each of us toy so she can be spared from the fight between us siblings. It was good because I was spared from danger of broken toys caused by my younger siblings.

I thought of doing the same to my kids. I would buy D and A separate toys so there will be no fighting-over-a-single-toy. I think there were times that we buy them different toys but they would end up still fighting because D wants A’s toys and the other way around. But then, it was time to teach them the value of sharing. Whenever I decide to buy them something, I would only buy one and talk to both of them and tell them about sharing. At first there will be crying mode and fight in between but later on, I would find them sharing and playing with each other without fighting.

Just this morning I found them sharing a pad of stickers and each of them are sticking it one by one on each other's arms without crying and fighting. I also constantly remind them to share food and toys. 



How about you? How do you teach your kids the value of sharing?
