WELCOME TO MY SITE AND HAVE A GOOD DAY
If this is your first time in this site, welcome. It has been my dream that my province, Marinduque, Philippines becomes a world tourist destination not only during Easter Week but also whole year round. You can help me achieve my dream by telling your friends about this site. The photo above is your own private beach at The Chateau Du Mer Beach Resort. The sand is not as white as Boracay, but it is only a few steps from your front yard and away from the mayhem and crowds of Boracay. Please do not forget to read the latest national, international, and technology news in this site . I have posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes on this site also. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringement of your copyrights. Cheers!

What to do if your Child has a Low Self-Esteem
The other day, I learned that my 11-year old grand daughter thinks she is ugly. In fact she is a beauty, not because I am her Lolo, but that is the reality ( see photo above). She is a Filipino-American MESTIZA with an Irish-Italian father. Because of her poor image of herself she lashes her anger and frustrations to her Mom. I started reading several articles on the subject. However, the one I found helpful was published on empoweringparents.com. It is a fairly long article, but the following are three things a parent should do to improve his/her child self esteem and poor image of himself or herself.
1.Teach your child how to identify the problem at hand.
2.Guide your child as they learn how to solve their problems.
3.Set limits on your child’s behavior, which ultimately shows her/him how to be more independent as they develop.
My own personal opinion is: Love your child and pay more attention to him or her. There is no better solution than to praise your child as often as you can without being a fake.
If your child think she is ugly, tell her she is pretty and beautiful and that you love her for who she is and not what she thinks she is.
