Be a Role Model

When I was a kid I always hear and read this phrase “Kung ano ang ginagawa ng matanda ay gagayahin ng bata’’ so when I became a mom, I always watch my words and actions because I’m afraid that my son will imitate me.  

But I’m not a perfect mom so sometimes I also fail. Look at these pictures.




Just last month my son stops eating the sides of the bread and I told my husband about it and he said, “kanino pa magmamana”.  I’m guilty about this because when I was a kid, I don’t like eating the sides of the bread even pizza crust unless it is a stuffed crust but of course I changed. Maybe there are moments that I’m unaware that I’m still doing this stuff and my son saw me. My bad, it’s been a month now and I can’t convince him to finish his bread and no leftover.

  2. It's really hard to convince children to eat what they don't like to eat. But my solution to that is be more creative in serving the dishes :D

    I agree with you on what u said about kids followed what they observed or saw from the elders that surrounds them---

  7. Haha! But what you said is so true: monkey see, monkey do. It's difficult to always be mindful of all your actions as a parent but hey, no one every said parenting was easy.

  10. Role modeling gets into the nerves of our children. Let's not our children see the bad things we do, so that they won't emulate them for themselves.

  11. kaya dapat good exampla pala nakikita at naririnig ng mga kids.i remeber one time while hubby was driving.nagsabi sya ng bad words at narinig ng bunso ko .ayun nakisigaw rin sya .kaya careful na si hubby magsalita kahit bwisit sa mag driver on the road.

  12. Bata pa yan, pwede pang matanggal yang habit na yan. Hehe. Ako naman before, di ko inuubos food ko. Ewan ko ba, gusto ko laging may tira.

  13. i know there are loaf breads w/o the brown sides na...at least no left overs...

    a little convincing or compromise cguro, like to leave only the brown part if he really doesn't want it...

  14. Hehe... we all have our quirks especially when we were young.

  18. Tama nga naman, parents should be role model to their kids. this is a classic example pero sa akin naman, from what I understood, preference sa manner ng pag-eat un so ayos lang. careful nga lang tau kasi even in attitudes and disposition in life, kids mirror their parents.

    This is a great post. Thanks for this Michi

  20. Recycle the crust of better yet, you can also buy some crustless bread> I saw one before in the grocery. I just can't remember what brand. =)

  21. Ganyang ganyan din mga girls ko dati. But once I tried filling each piece of bread with sandwich spread or jam from edge to edge. UBOS! Walang natira. So from then on I made it a habit at ginagawa ko pa rin hanggang ngayon.:-)

  22. I have no problem with what you show here. I liked it when our children did those things when they were still young because I like to eat them when they are gone. :)

  23. I'm sure its a phase. If he sees you eating it, eventually he will again. Don't force him though.

  24. there is no permanent in this world, but change. :) Marami pa siyang malalamang kaalaman at magbabago rin yan. Of coz wag kang magsawa sa guidance :) Have a nice day!

  25. you can cut the sides naman before you give it to him. And you can use the "uneaten" sides in making burgers or toast it and crumb it. :)

  26. ang cute ng example mo ha - not eating the sides ;-) eventually he will discover it by his own - he might actually try to eat those in the soonest time

  27. You have more time to correct your child. Try to enlighten your child about hunger. There are too many people in the world died from hunger. I always tell that to my daughter never left any rice as possible in the plate. Or just get food enough for you. Kaya ginagawa ko kung may left over kinakain ko kaysa itapon ang pagkain. I know one day she'll understand how to value food, learn from me and wasting food is no good to practice. good luck!

  28. ika nga, what you do is louder than what you say.

  29. I think it's normal for kids their age. Ganyan din ako nung bata ako. Binubutas ko ang bread for me to eat the center. Ganun din sa pizza. Pero ngayon medyo okay na. HAHAHA.

  30. Dont worry, sis. In time he'll learn to like the sides again. Si poj ko he used to refuse to eat the sides kahit kami naman we eat it. pero ngayon he doesn't seem to mind it as much na =)

  31. i can't agree more...i hope it's just a phase for him 'coz my daughter was once like that, but now, it's the first thing that she eats already :)
