I’m pretty sure that when Manny Pacquiao won his legendary eighth world title yesterday, several parents said in jest, “Mag-boksingero ka na lang anak para maging milyonaryo tayo.” (Son, take up boxing so that we can be millionaires too.) LOL. Not all of our kids are called to be boxers though. Their interests may lie somewhere else. Or if they do like the sport, they may not have the natural ability nor the discipline to become a great sportsman like Manny P. Don’t despair. Although they won’t grow up as rich and powerful as “Pacman,” they can still be winners in their own field and champions in life which are really the most important thing, don’t you think?
I would like to share with you my article published on Health Today Magazine that talked about the importance of instilling healthy habits in your child early on. Good habits do result in good behavior which is then translated to living the “good life” worthy of a true, patriotic Filipino.
