Thank you, Lord, for the gift of children.
As a parent, I would want my children to succeed in everything they do. And sometimes, I am the mean mother who pushes her boys past their limits because she believes they can.
True enough, they can! Our Big Bunso is grade four’s over all first honors. His grades greatly improved as well as his conduct.
As for our grade six lad, his academic average likewise improved. It’s just that those in the honors roll also studied doubly hard to better their chances in the class standing. Our boy placed fourth. He told me though he will make up for this coming quarter. I believe in him.
Our teenage kuya, on the other hand, earned an average worthy to be considered for third honors this first trimester. But, he had an Approaching Proficiency grade in Science which disqualified his eligibility for the said honors. Still, it only proves that he can be part of his new school’s honors list without his parents’ help. We do not tutor him any more because we could see that he had already developed good study habits and can study well on his own. He could still approach me though and consult on complicated topics. Also, before he retires for the night, I check his notebooks and make sure he has completed his homework.
So again, to my three diligent boys, congratulations and we are happy of your achievements. Even at your young age, you three show that you can handle well your responsibilities and studies.
