OUT OF CONTROL KIDS
well, of course eventually i will have children of my own. but definitely it's not in the near future. i don't think i have enough patience to deal with kids yet. i mean.. just watching those videos made me wanna turn them into a soccer ball and you-know-what's-next! hehe! hay. hay.. kids. kids. kids.
one time, i had to baby sit for my 3-year old niece rocio camille. the moment we were left alone in the house, i closed my eyes, bowed my head and whispered, "lord.. help me." hehehe.. in fairness, she doesn't easily get out of control like most kids do. i wanna share this latest story about rocio camille..
her "other side" lola was giving her a sermon for doing something naughty..
lola: we will not feed you! we willl buy happy meal and we won't give you any!
rocio camille: (calmly) so what?
weehoo! way to go! atta girl! that's my niece! 3 years old. unbelievable. i think her "other side" lola was the one out of control at this time. haha. rocio camille was very much in control of the situation here! haha..
anyways.. for those people who missed that oprah episode and do need help for their out of control children, this book called "super nanny" may be of help. Jo Frost, the british author, was one of the oprah's guests and her methods seemed to work on those out of control kids who were featured in the show. i just don't know if it's already available here in the philippines. but what the heck? if it's still not out in the market, you can always close your eyes, bow you head and whisper.. "lord.. help me.."
trust me. it helps. hehe..
