Because of Youtube, my children learned the ABC, the shapes, numbers and everything without me teaching them. But teaching my child how to read is something that I know my child will really need my guidance.

And as a new mom I know it will be challenging for us to teach them to read. Because it will actually need a lot of patient and time.

And here are some steps on how to teach your child to read:

1. Read to your child - It is not only  a special bonding between you and your child but also it instills in her a love for book.

2. Ask questions - It is not only great for encouraging your child to interact with the book but it also effective in developing his ability to comprehend what he is reading.

3. Be a good example - Even if your child is fascinated in reading books this fascination is can be easily be gone if he doesn't see anyone in your home as a reading model. So even if you are not an avid reader yourself, make a conscious effort to let your children see you reading at least a few minutes a day.

4. Identify letters in natural settings -  At around age of 2 1/2 your child will start asking the letters. And that is how they learned to spell. I remember my child sometimes asking me about a signage. She said "Mama why is there an ABC there" (she was actually referring to the letters on the signage). In technical term that is called environmental print.

It is very unusual for me to have whiteheads or pimple break outs. But lately due to excessive eating of junk foods and oily foods. I think I am now having a white heads and problem.

And so I searched for the best home remedies for pimples and white heads and I remembered one from the past that has been very effective for me. And you know what that is? Tooth paste and salt.

I know that there's a lot of pimple cleansing product out there in the market. And I also know that most of people can afford to buy those products as well.

But there are also few people who preferred using home remedies instead and I know that it is just right to share this with them.

Note: I don't recommend this as it is not medically recommended and I am just using this as it is effective for me.

So moving forward. All you need for this white heads home remedy is just a pea amount of toothpaste and small amount of iodized salt.

And there you have it!

Just put the right amount on the affected area and rub it gently.

After that rinse with water. smile

Hi just this morning I decided to re-do my nail polish but unfortunately I ran out of nail polish remover. And the worst thing is it is not available at the nearest store. sad

And so I tried to research if I can make my own DIY nail polish remover using things that are available at home or in the kitchen. And luckily I got one from youtube using lemon juice + vinegar.

Teaching your child how to share is a bit challenging for a parent. Children have difficulties in sharing specially young children because it is a part of their development. And the first step in helping your child is to know this and teach him how to be generous.

Selfishness comes before sharing -The power to posses is a natural part of child's growing awareness. A one- year old child has difficulty of sharing her mommy; a four -year old child has difficulty of sharing her teddy bear and so on.

When to expect your child to share -You cannot expect a 2 1/2 year old child to easily accept sharing because children of their age are into parallel play. Playing alongside the other children but not playing with them.

But with your guidance and generosity, they can become a generous and three year or four year old child. They will learn how to cooperate and they will learn the value of sharing.

Don't force a child to share - Instead, create an attitude and environment that might encourage your child on wanting to share. To you a toy is just a "toy" but to your child, it is a valuable thing. Respect you child's normal possessiveness while you encourage and model sharing.

Get connected - A child gives as he is given to. It has been observed that children who received attachment parenting during the first two years of their life are more likely to become sharing children in the years to come, for two reasons; children who have been receiving end of generosity follow their model and also a child who feels right is more likely to share.

Model generosity when you teach your child how to share - It is very important that as a parent teaching your child about sharing, they should also see you doing the same thing. Because if you are teaching them how to share and they saw you as being selfish, you might be sending a different message to them.

Hope this could help! smile

If you want your child to grow responsible, one of the best thing you should teach them is  how to save money.

As soon as we started sending our children to school, sometimes some moms started giving their child some money as well aside from their pack lunch. 

And of course we do not want to give them too much money that they don't need.

When I was at the 1st grade, my mom used to give me a pocket money as well. But for some reason I am hesitant to spend those money that my mom was giving me. From there I learned how to save and how to be thrifty.

Even though my children are still young and don't understand what money is, I am now teaching them how to save each and every coins that I have left after grocery by letting them to put those coins to the piggy bank that I got somewhere.

Since then, every coins that they see on the floor or table, they automatically put it right into their piggy bank. smile 

If your child is matured enough to understand, you may inspire them to save up by telling that they can save money for something they really like or something they wanted to buy. For example they want a new shoes, you can tell them that by saving money they can buy the shoes that they really like. In my own opinion, children will become more appreciative by doing that. wink

During pregnancy, your immune system is likely to change. With this changes, we cannot avoid having cold or cough at some point in time during pregnancy. And this may last longer.

The good news is the symptoms of cold and flu are not typically dangerous to your baby. But in order for you to avoid this you must have to maintain a healthy lifestyle and eat nutritious foods like vegetables and fruits.

In addition to that, during pregnancy we do avoid taking OTC during this stage because there are some contents that are bad for both moms and babies.

Here are some helpful home remedies to treat colds at home:

1. Get some rest- take a nap, sit and relax to give your body much needed rest.

2. Drink plenty of fluids - drink, water, juice or broth.

3. Eat well - If you cannot eat larger meals, try eating small frequent meals.

4. Reduce Congestion - Place a humidifier on your room.

Last time I have shared some tips on how to conceive a baby boy. Now let me share with you how to conceive a baby girl. I got these when I was on my early stage of pregnancy trying to guess what the gender of my baby might be.

It is not a hundred percent sure but as long as it is not harmful you have nothing to loose. smile

1. Know the Shettles Method - According shettles method for to be able to conceive for a baby girl, you should have to sex two to four days before ovulation.

2. No Orgasm - It is claimed that avoiding orgasm may be the key to conceiving a girl. The female orgasm releases alkaline secretion which may help boy sperm to survive longer by creating less hostile environment. Without these secretions, boy sperm may find it harder to survive and less chance of reaching the egg.

3. More Sex -  When trying to conceive for a girl, you should have to aim more sex. More often sex will reduce sperm count, meaning less fast swimming boy sperm available.

4. Veg out - According to study, eating fruit and vegetable can improve your chances of conceiving a girl. Specially if you eat foods such as spinach, nuts and broccoli.

5. Low salt - A low salt diet is also said to improve your chances of conceiving a girl.

Have you been wondering before if there is anyway you can conceive a baby boy? Or have been wishing that you conceive for a baby boy?
Well here are some information that might help you on conceiving a baby boy. 

Note: These information are all based on scientific reasoning.

1. Have an Alkali rich diet -  having an alkali diet favors the sperms carrying Y chromosomes ( Y sperms are responsible for having a baby boy). And hence maintaining a high ph in your body helps the Y sperms to stay longer and swim faster.

There are several foods like banana redmeat etc. which contains a lot of sodium and potassium, it helps to keep the Ph level high which is required for having a baby boy.

2. Choose the intercourse position carefully - It doesn't occur all the time to all of us. It says that rear entry position helps to deposit the sperm as close as possible to the entry of cervix, so that the Y sperms has to cover a less distance and gets a head start.

3. Ask your partner to have coffee - Even though this has not been tested scientifically, many women have vouched the fact that it helps to conceive a boy. It is says that caffeine possibly helps sperm in some way.

4. Keep your partner away from heat - The Y sperms do not perform well and tends to die in heat. So it would be better, if your better half can wear boxers during conception period. It's also recommended to avoid hot bath for the same reason.

As we get older, it is getting harder to get fit. It is getting harder to maintain those flat abs.

And our then flat abs usually replaced with big belly.

So let me share with you a 10 minute abs workout and let us get back to our old sexy abs.

As a kid, we are use to watch Sesame street, Bananas in Pajamas and whatever kids program that is being aired in our country during our own time.

But during our kids time, I think they are starting to discover  their very own TV program which is quietly as entertaining and educational as the TV programs that we knew.
 So let me share with you what I just discovered my kids watching lately.

They are really educational and entertaining. Here are sample videos from youtube.
Corn is considered by many as either vegetables or grain and corn is also a good source of antioxidant carotenoids, such as lutein and  zeaxanthin. Yellow or colored corn may promote eye health.

1 small onion, chopped
2 tblsp cooking oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups of white corn, shredded
1 cup malunggay leaves cleaned
2 tsp garlic minced

Steps on cooking:

During your pre-natal period, you might be having few things in mind that you might be uncomfortable to ask with your ob-gyne. What would that be?

Related to that, here are some questions that a new mom might ask:

1. Will I poop during my delivery?

That is actually possible and it happens a lot since the rectum is already underneath the uterus during your last phase of pregnancy but you shouldn't really have to worry about your bowel during your delivery. The people on the delivery room are all professionals and respect privacy and they are there to support you. So you have to focus on your baby and not on your bowel during your delivery. 

2. Will I get stretched out down there?

The answer is no. Your vagina is made to stretch to accommodate childbirth and then contract backto its normal size. Your vagina has a muscle memory and it is highly recommended to do some kegel exercises in sets of 10, four to five times daily pospartum.

3. Would I still be able to control my bladder after pregnancy?
Bladder control will tend to decrease after pregnancy and childbirth but doing some kegel exercise will also help.

4. Can I have sex during pregnancy?

Yes. Most are afraid to do this because they are afraid to hurt the mom or the baby but having sex during pregnancy won't hurt the mom or the baby. 

5. Why is intercourse more painful after giving birth?

There are some trauma that needs to heal and for breastfeeding moms, hormone level changes too. especially estrogen levels which may lead to problems with lubrication.

They say education is one of the best thing we can give to our children. As a parent it is our obligation to send our children to schools and give them right and proper education. We always wanted to make sure that our children is learning things they should have to learn in school.

But it is also part of our role as a parent to make sure that it would be so stressful for them.

During my time as a student, I was having a lot pressure being on top section. More activities on schools and more take home activities. Even in weekends we do have home work. And as child, I also need to play and socialize with other kids but it doesn't happen all the time.

May that is one of the reason why other kids are cutting classes and dropping out. They are being bombarded too much in school.

Can it just be school time is study time and getting home is relaxing time?

As a mother, are you in favor of take home activities or homework for your children?

Support your answer.

Do you know that vinegar could help you remove stubborn stains on your laundry?

Yes! Vinegar is also known for removing stains on laundry. My grandmother taught me that, before washing white clothes, I must soaked them first in a vinegar with a small amount of water and leave it there overnight.

It doesn't only remove the stains but it also leave your white clothes with a clean white color.

When I was not yet a mother and have never been experienced to become a mother. I am wishing for a baby girl or a baby boy.
As soon as I got pregnant, I was wishing for a healthy baby boy. But when i learned that my child will gonna a baby girl, I was wishing for a healthy child.

By that time I have realized that no matter what my child's gender is, I am always okay with that as long as he is well and very healthy.

But once there is someone asked me what if I had a gay son? How would I accept it? Actually for me and my husband, that is fine. We still love him no matter what. 

I know there are some issue about homosexuals vs religions, same sex marriage or whatever but for me, God created them. Everything that they are God created them. What they feel, what they have become, for me God allowed them to be those things. 

So as a parent, whom am I not to accept my own child? Right? 

If I were to ask you? How would you accept if you will have a gay son? Feel free to post comment smile
