Last Wednesday we went to the booksale of the school where my daughter is enrolled. Some of my mommy friends are also excited since it's our first time to have books for school. We were talking about good it was to buy books and that we can have the option to sell back textbooks later. It is a nice feeling to have books that are approved by Dept Ed. It means that this books have been passed through different hands for review and are on track with our children schooling. Now, we don't have to worry of grammatical errors in worksheets.We also have guidelines when it comes to the pace of learning of our kids. We know that what the kids learn are in parallel with what is required or mandated by the Department of Education, they won't be subjected to topics that are only regulated by the teachers. Yes, I am just grateful that we were able to transfer.

I always tell my husband that I think our daughter needs a little bit attitude adjustment. Oh she can be very sweet most of the time but when it comes to her attitude when she found herself in a difficult situation she would throw a tantrum and just give up. I am linking this behavior in the practices of her old school. Since according to their teachers there won't be any forcing the kids to do stuff she does not want, the kids end up a bit of a spoiled brat. Based on what I see, I would say it's really is good not to force a child but it's not okay for me that the teacher would give up teaching the child. If she says no, the teacher being the adult and responsible in that situation should find a way to interest the child in learning the lesson in such a way that the child will not feel that she is being forced. Somehow that is where they are lacking. And unfortunately opinions like this are not being considered since those 'adults' are not ready for opinion that does not favor them.
Yes, I am so excited to buy school bag for the little girl. We already got her books, she has 9 and 11 notebooks. So that means we have to have bags with wheels :) At first she was asking me if she can have a lalaloopsy bag, I humor her and we look in different malls unfortunately they only have lala dolls. So I talked to the little girl and told her we just have to buy a different one. She already agreed. But I have to push it aside because I wanted to know first what the school approved. I will know the details when we have our orientation. A friend of mine also told me that they also need a small bag. I am now thinking if I should buy Osprey Exos backpack for her or would that be too much? Anyway, I'll get answer on Friday. I am one excited mom!
