This is it!

I saw this post from a parents group whose children are grown and flown. I can relate to it because, like her (the mom), we will be making our final college tuition payment for our youngest child this month.

It’s no mean feat to support a child to college, and yes, we did it. 

We are also thankful that the child persisted through the difficulties of online learning. A few more months ‘til graduation, we can start saving for our home project and perhaps for our retirement.

School Update

It’s been a while since I posted about my younger kid here. No longer a young kid though, he’s actually in college now. By next year, we hope he will earn his college diploma.

K is currently enrolled at CIIT, taking up Bachelor of Multimedia Arts (BAMMA) through virtual classes.

By the way, the school sent this certificate to my son last month. I’m just happy and appreciate this young man for all his efforts despite the difficulties of online classes.

Also, it is my boy’s birthday today. I love you, son. I pray to God to continue to bless you with good health and a sound mind. May God grant your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans. 

Tips to help kids do well in school


Kids with good support system at home normally perform well in school. We, as parents, can give our kids the learning tools that they need; guidance and proper nourishment to keep up with the demands of a busy school life.

Initially, young kids should be taught the value of time management by setting a regular or fix study hour. Some kids do their assignments right after taking their snacks. Others prefer to study after dinner.

You can invest in school materials like a cute study desk and comfy chair to develop a liking for studies. Make their little corner appealing to them, buy hdmi cables if necessary. Essential school items like dictionary, pencil and paper should be placed within their reach. Distractions such as playing gadgets and computer use should be minimized during regular school days.

Prepare simple yet nutritious food for your kids. Properly nourished kids are more alert and learn better in school.

As for teenage kids like I have, it is the stage when kids are very curious and want to try things out. It is very important to be there for them and let them know how important their studies are.

You should ensure that your kids have a specific space and furniture for their studies. When they perform well, you must reward and praise them for their good deeds. Be patient with them and never compare them with other kids because every child is unique. You can also let them choose a study time that suits them so that they do not have to be pushed around.

Review your teen’s assignments everyday and show interest in their studies by asking them what they learn in school. Ultimately, remember that motivating your kid is not a onetime thing but lasts as long as they are in school.

Teaching our kids and supporting them do well in school be it the preschool in Thornton CO  will give our children the foundation to be successful later in life.
