Grayscale Thursday: Ocean Adventure Kids

"If a child cannot learn the way we teach,
we must teach in a way a child can learn."

Ocean Adventure Kids

This post is not only to show framed images I took during Matthew's field trip in Ocean Adventure but a sort of reflection too.

Yesterday, Matthew went home with many small stars and a sad face. This indicates that he did not behave well in school. Then his yaya told us that she was informed by the teacher that Matthew bit his classmates finger and hit another classmate with notebook.

As soon as I knew what he did, naiinis ako, and I want to go home right away and talk to him. But I need to control my temper and wait until got home.

Children are great imitators.
So give them something great to imitate."

Mommy and I had to talk about it why he behaves like that lately. She sends me an article on how to discipline kids positively.

From there article, I realized that Matthew should not the one to blame on but, maybe, us. Oftentimes kasi, we used to scold and shout on him whenever he started his pagiging makulit.

We get easily lost our temper on him and there are times when he wanted to talk to us, he needs to catch our attention first.

I think the change should come from us first. Just like the quotation above, kids used to copy whatever we do and we should show them a good example to copy.

From now on, I will try to understand and discipline him in a positive way.

Flower Power Tuesday: The Tridax

"Many people have never learned to see the beauty of flowers,
especially those that grows unnoticed.
For instance, when you walk outside and look down on your feet,
you may see tiny flowers nestled in the moss
and clover hiding under a curled fern.
Most people stem on them. I paint them."
-Erika Just

"Where flowers bloom so does hope."
- Lady Bird Johnson

The Tridax

These flowers were framed in one of my visits in Tarlac. They look beautiful in clusters despite the fact that they are weeds and need to pull out.

As to the quotation, we used to neglect simple things that comes to ur daily life. Some of these are even  blessings that we forget to appreciate.

And for the second quotation, every flower than blooms might serves as an inspiration for us to keep on having hope.

Happy Tuesday!

Family Day Sunday: Matthew and the Sea

"The greatest gifts you can give your children
are the roots of your responsibility and
wings of independence."
- Denis Waitley

"We must teach our children
to dream with their eyes open."
- Harry Edwards

Matthew and the Sea

This is one of the random photos I took during Matthew's Educational Trip in Ocean Adventure in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

He is watching the sea and waiting for the dolphins to appear. Unfortunately, this is a pen for sea turtles.

Happy Sunday everyone!
