Teachable Moment With Kids: Needs vs Wants

My kids and I have a lot of bonding moments at home, especially now that we are in the second year of this pandemic. They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money. As a parent, it is one of the primary life skills children must learn at home to manage their liquid assets properly. Even in their younger years, I let them use their piggy bank. Any coin that they get changes from the food they buy. They already keep it in their piggy banks.  But how soon must we teach our kids proper money management? As soon as my kid starts to count and recognize money and when they begin receiving monetary allowances, I should start teaching them the importance of money and how to manage it wisely. Before teaching our kids proper money management, they have to learn the diffe

Five Love Languages; A Realization

After finishing the book, Five Love Languages of Gary Chapman (months ago), it helped me contemplate on few facts in life and relationships. I thought, based from my life experiences, it was already enough to make me a better person or should I say, better me in a relationship. But the book helped me understand everything including my attitude towards another individual as well. Here are few of my realizations:

  • Relationships are not meant to fall apart, if and only if couple will compromise. Being out of the relationship is solely a choice between two parties if they really don’t really come up with a common agreement.
  • Not all men are bastards. There are just some who opt to be difficult and chose to play around.
  • Women is a creature who is difficult to decipher but once you get to know her love language, men will surely be head over heels. 
  • Once in a while arguments are healthy, which serves an avenue to know well each other, an opportunity to kiss and make up and connect with your partner.
  • In order for the couple to understand each other, they must speak the same dialect and know each other’s love language.
  • Each person has its own flaws and shortcomings but arguments can be avoided if both parties if there is acceptance.
  • Sometimes it helps to calm before flaring up and think a hundred times before uttering any word. Hurtful words can never be taken back.
  • Time is an element meant to share with someone no matter how busy we are. Again, go back to compromise.
  • Don’t expect your partner to do things beyond their capabilities. Expectations will only kill your hopes, which leads to frustrations. 
  • It is never too late to share your emotions. It might be the start of your ever after.
Now if you think you have a lot to improve with your relationship and want to learn more and understand more your partner in happiness, craziness, and gloom, I recommend reading this book because it really helps a lot.

  1. I married the man of my dreams. But as the saying goes, "Nobody is perfect." We used to argue a lot, too. Sometimes it was his fault, but for the most part it was me. I am kinda bratty and stubborn. If I am mad, I don't talk to him. Gusto ko sya ang mag-sorry kahit ako naman ang may mali. Well I mellowed %50 when our little one was born. Now we are happier but needs more work. I will try to read the book you recommended. 🙂
