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

Positivity Amidst The Crisis

The past few months have been very difficult for all of us. It all started with several calamities that greeted the year 2020. It was really pretty devastating for most of us who are coping, thriving, and trying to survive of what was happening.

When I became a mom, I lost my carefree self. My younger self isn’t used to worrying a lot of things. The anxiety and paranoia just all started when I had my children. It all suddenly grew on me and here I am, that worrisome slash paranoid mom. I become scared on a lot of things and sometimes my husband would tell me that I am not the same person anymore.


On some occasions, I couldn’t sleep for days properly especially when Ashfall from Mt. Taal happened because there we earthquakes and the quality of air got really bad. I fear for the health of my children and so many other things that is running in my mind. I can calm myself by watching Kdrama until dawn, and also by praying the rosary or when look at my children until I fall asleep. Now, this Covid19 pandemic happened and everything went on a cycle again. I worried on the food on our table because everyone stopped working, I worried that I might catch the disease for going out to buy us supplies, I am worried until when is this pandemic going to end. I worry non-stop the past few months.


Honestly, everything is a test of our mental stability. Even though I am used to working at home, and can endure not going out for the rest of the week, the past months is quite different. I have children and a husband to tend to. They are hungry and needy most of the time of my energy and it is quite exhausting to say the least. It came to a point where I shut myself inside the room and just stood there until I calmed myself from not becoming a monster mom.


One day, I saw The I Am Band and got hold of it, tried it on as it claims to remove negative energy, spiritual attacks and Created to Stop Bad Luck, negativity and anxiety. I tried it on and been wearing it for the past few months and during the first three weeks of wearing it, I felt calmness in my inner self. I was able to sleep properly at night and I don’t get mad at the children easily. It also helps that I am always wearing it as I am reminded on how I should stay positive amidst everything that is happening. It helps, but a challenge. Even though it may seem hard to cope with our new normal at home, this helped me a lot. Also, it helps that it is pure silver that even during bath and in between chores, I could wear it without worrying of causing me skin irritations.

I just hope that everything will end soon and go back to normal. Let us all continue to go through this together and stay positive amidst all the crisis that is happening. Let us all stay healthy and safe!

How are you all holding up in this pandemic?
