My Sons' Collection

Yahmir is an avid fan of Batman since he was a year old.  He's been watching Batman movies in DVDs every now and then.  I remember when he was 3 years old, I heard him reciting the lines in the movie while watching it, for he already had memorized the lines and sequence of the story (lol).  He had collected numerous Batman action figures and Batman car toys.

Both of them are very much interested in computers, the reason why we put up an ICafe business before, to enhance their computer related skills and JM’s hands-on for his IT (Information Technology) course.  They also have different gadgets from Gameboy to Playstation, Nintendo DS,and PSP.

  15. Children are above average, but if i don't remind, they really concentrate very less. So i am required to with them. How i can generate interest within themselves. I am feared with time, i may not be able to spare time with them. Two boys in the same class and school, primary school children. Any suggestion that can help. I am serious about this.

  16. i would suggest you talk to your kids heart to heart, explain why you have to work, it does not mean that spending less time with them means you are neglecting them. as i always keep on mentioning in my posts/articles, opening the channels of communication with our kids is very important. kids nowadays are very smart and intelligent, for as long as you build the best bond between you and your children , you will have no fear :)

    this suggestion is based on my humble opinion :)
