Straight Talk: Mobile Phone for My Daughter

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.I’m currently looking for an inexpensive cellphone unit for my daughter. She wants her cellphone with Internet access so she can check on her friends on Facebook and DeviantArt. At the moment, it’s just me and hubby who are using a prepaid cellphone connection. We are also using a common cellphone number to reach out to relatives or call a friend. Prepaid is convenient because we don’t have to worry about due or unpaid phone bills. Then a friend recommend Straight Talk phone service and its offer to sell reconditioned phones for only $10.00 with camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability. It has everything you need in a phone service for an affordable price.

If you are a heavy phone user you can avail an unlimited monthly service of calls, text, picture messaging and Internet use for only $45. With all the nice features Straight Talk can give, I guess mom knows best if I choose to avail one for my daughter.

Para sa aking kabiyak, kaibigan, kaasaran,  at kung anu-ano pa,
Aba at tayo pala ay naka-abot na ng kinse.
Labinlimang taon ng pagmamahalan at pagka
minsan ay tampuhan. Hindi naman mawawala
‘yon sa kahit ano pa mang samahan.
Matagal na panahon na pala ang lumipas,
tanda ko pa ang mga araw na ako ay mistulang
“cry baby” sa mga problemang akala ko ay
walang katapusan. Andun ka sa tabi ko upang
ako ay patawanin. Minsan nakauwi na ako sa
amin, pero ang ngiti sa labi ay namumutawi
pa rin.
Ah, ikaw ang nagturo sa akin para maging
matatag, taga-alo, taga-gabay, inspirasyon
ko sa buhay, maski na sa pagsusulat pagka
minsan ay editor ka rin.
Ikaw na, ikaw na nga, sino pa ba ang gusto
kong makasama hanggang sa pagtanda. Sana
manatili tayong ganito, simpleng
mag-kaagapay sa lahat ng dumating sa ating
buhay.
Korni? Sabi mo lang ‘yon. Mahirap atang
humabi ng mga salita sa Tagalog tapos may
‘rhyming’ pa. Tingnan mo nga at matatapos ka
na sa pagbasa.
Paano ko ba tatapusin sobra na ‘tong mushy.
Sige na, ending nito sasabihin ko lang na salamat sa lahat,
labs kita at sana’y mag-kasama tayo sa mga
susunod pang anibersaryo…

When your kids won’t listen

Hasn’t it happened all too often that you want to sit your kids down for a serious talk but they’d much rather something else? What’s worse, they sometimes even snap back at you. What can you do to grab their attention, long enough to get your message across?

First of all, make sure your kid is not hungry, tired or sleepy. Catching him in a bad mood is hardly the perfect time to talk to him about an important matter. Make sure he’s well-rested and in a fairly calm mood.

Try to lure him with his weakness. It could be a bucket of ice cream, or engaging him in conversation about his favorite basketball team. Again, the key is getting his attention.

Afterwards, you can gradually sneak in the topic you wish to bring up with him. He should be in a good enough mood to listen to you. Be sure to speak in a calm tone, as aggression will only elicit a negative response from your kid.

Kids do need respect from us too. If we give them that, they will unconsciously return the favor, and listen intently to what you have to say.
