Kung may sampung utos ng Diyos na dapat sundin ng sangkatauhan, ikaw bilang magulang, dapat mong sundin at ibigay sa iyong mga anak ang kanilang karapatan bilang bata. Ang pagiging magulang ay hindi basta-basta. Ito ay napakalaking responsibilad sa Diyos, sa lipunan at sa iyong mga supling.
Paki-check lang po kung nasusunod ninyo ang mga karapatan ng bawat bata. Baka isa ka sa nakalilimot o ngayon mo lang ito nalaman???
1. Karapatang maisilang at mabigyan ng pangalan. (Right to be born and be given a name). Hoy, ineng at takeng nabasa niyo, ‘to? Pag-isipan ang isang bagay bago gawin ha? Hindi ‘yong ‘pag nabuo ay ‘hindi pa ready’ ang isasagot. Kawawang bata sa sinapupunan ang magsasakripisyo. At ikaw naman ina na nagluwal sa iyong anak, pakirehistro po ng anak niyo sa civil registrar sa inyong munisipyo. Hindi iyong grade one na, wala pa ring Birth Certificate. Saka lang kukuha kapag kinukuha ni titser kasi ‘di tatangapin sa paaralan. Isa pa, saka pabibinyagan ang anak sabay-sabay. 4 in 1, parang kape? Siyam na anyos na si panganay, pito si pangalawa, lima si pangatlo at dalwa si bunso, nagalit tuloy si Padre Damaso.
2.Karapatang maging malakas at malusog. (Right to be strong and healthy). Hindi dahilan ang pagiging mahirap o kawalan ng regular na trabaho kaya ‘di makakain ng masustanyang pagkain si anak. Iyan lagi ang daing sa akin ng mga nanay sa field. Haller ‘nay kahit sa lata o butas na timba, o lumang gulong puwede kang magtanim ng mga gulay. Wala ka mang lupa na taniman o may malawak kang bakuran, magtanim lang po at marami na kayong maaaning gulay at prutas. Marami pong bitamina at protina na nasa gulay at prutas, ‘di man tayo madalas makakain ng karne o isda.
3. Karapatan mong mabigyan ng maayos na tahanan. (Right to an abode). Sabi nga po, “aanhin niyo ang bahay na bungalow, kung ang nakatira dito ay kuwago. Buti pa ang isang kubo na nakatira ay tao“. Ibigay po natin sa mga bata ang may pagmamahal, makatao at responsableng pag-aaruga. Iyong tinatawag nilang kapuso, kapamilya at kapatid na pagmamahal upang masabi nila na sila ay nasa kanilang maayos na tahanan.
4.Karapatang tumira sa isang malinis, maayos at ligtas na kapaligiran. (Right to live in a clean, peaceful, and safe environment). Malinis – kahit barong-barong ang inyong bahay basta malinis, daig nyo pa ang nasa palasyo. Sabi nga sa kanta ng Eraserheads na TOYANG:
” Bahay namin maliit lamang
Pero pero pero malinis ‘to pati sa kusina
Kumain man kami laging sama-sama”
‘Wag naman ‘nay, ‘tay iyong nasanay na tayong m’yembro ng ating pamilya si ipis, si langaw, si daga na para bang komportable na silang palakad-lakad sa ating bahay at tipong kalaro na ng iyong mga anak. Saka si lamok, uso pa naman ngayon ang dengue. Kaya kung may kalinisan at kaayusan ang kapaligiran, siguradong ligtas ang ating kabataan.
5.Karapatang makapag-aral. (Right to education). Natutuwa ako sa aming Gobernadora, at nagkaroon siya ng programa upang maging maayos ang edukasyon sa aming lalawigan. Isa sa programa niya ang OB Montessori approach sa mga Daycare Center na naka-focus sa mga batang nagmula sa mahihirap na pamilya. Makakapag-aral na sila na may kalidad na edukasyon at ‘di ganoon kataas ang tuition fee tulad sa ibang private Montessori.. Salamat po.
6.Karapatang maglibang. (Right to play). Kaya mga magulang, baka masyadong nalilimutan na ito. Naalala ko ang isa kong kaibigan, proud na proud siya sa kanyang anak at achiever sa klase nila. Kaya naman pala. Pagkatapos ng klase, tuloy sa tutorial center. Pagdating sa bahay, pagod na pagod na ang bata. Tulog agad tapos gigising ng maaga para pumasok ulit. Ganito na lang ang routine ng buhay niya, at ‘pag weekend ay tutorial pa rin – voice lesson. ‘Di naman talaga kagandahan ang boses, frusrated singer lang ang ina kaya gustong maging singer ang anak. hay, buti nakinig sa payo ko.
7.Karapatang malinang ang angking talino. (Right to enhance talents and interests). Note: siguraduhing aking talino ng bata at ‘di angking kagustuhan ng magulang. LOL. Hindi ko na po hahabaan ang explanation.
8.Karapatang magkaroon ng pamilyang mag-aaruga. (Right to have a caring family). Bawat bata ay may karapatang magkaroon ng pamilya na mag-aaruga sa kanya – pamilyang magmamahal, mag-aalaga at gagabayan siya sa kanyang paglalakbay patungo sa kanyang mga pangarap at hindi pamilyang magiging sanhi upang ‘di nya maabot ang mga iyon.
9.Karapatang matuto ng mabuting ugali at magandang-asal. (Right to learn proper and good behavior). Kapamilya, napaka-importante na ito ay inyong malaman. Ang kabutihang asal at ugali ng isang bata ay unang natutunan sa kanyang kinagisnang pamilya. Kaya kung ano ang kanyang bukang bibig at gawi, ito’y reflection kung anong klaseng pamilya mayroon siya. Kabutihang asal at gawi po ang kanyang karapatang matutunan. Kung ito ay ‘di niyo naituro sa kanya, nalabag niyo na po ang isang karapatan ng batang si Juan.
10. Karapatang ipagtanggol at matulungan ng pamahalaan. (Right to be supported by the government). Mmm… isang banat lang sa ating Gobyerno: Huwag ibuhos lahat ng panahon at budget sa hearing ni Corona at Arroyo. Nasira na nila ang kinabukasan ng ibang mga bata at kabataan na umaasa sa kanilang pamumuno.Bigyan niyo naman ng atensyon at panahon ang mga kabataan at batang nasa paligid niyo na tumatanaw na magkaroon pa sila ng pag-asa at magandang kinabukasan. Maging mulat ang mata ng mga tao sa gobyerno.
Bawat isa sa atin ay responsable sa mga karapatan ng mga bata, Kapamilya, kapitbahay, kaibigan, kabarkada,kasangga o kakwentuhan ka man, dapat ikaw ay may kamalayan sa iyong kapaligirang ginagalawan dahil sa bawat sulok nito ay may batang nakatingin at ang nakikinig sayo.
About Angelaisang babae na may positibong pananaw sa buhay, mapagmahal sa asawa't anak, madaling umiyak at madali ring mapatawa. May misyong gumawa ng mabuti sa bawat araw sa kapwa kahit sa maliit na pamamaraan man o malaking bagay... Isang ngiti mo lang may pinasaya ka na nakapaligid syo... Masarap mabuhay ng may pagmamahal!

The college essay is tough. It’s not writing it that’s the hard part – it’s deciding what to write about that can be difficult. What’s most curious about the college essay is that many of the topics on this list (those that should be avoided) also happen to be some of the most commonly used topics out there.
But, why? Why are students writing about boring, tired out subjects?
A lack of creativity? Certainly not! Students know how to be creative.
A lack of gumption? Doubtful – many students even take it upon themselves to create their own version of an anti-essay (see number seven on the list).
For many students, the issue is the narrative, which begins at the essay’s focus: the topic.
A boring essay details a summary of Joe’s mission trip to Guatemala, where he volunteered at a local school with his family.
A great essay details Joe’s experience during his mission trip to Guatemala, where he volunteered at a local school with his family. It was there he met Anita, a local elderly woman who wanted to learn how to read but came from a poor family so she never had the opportunity. Joe and Anita developed a friendship…
See, you want to read more of the story, right? But, the first essay example didn’t make you want to continue reading on to learn any more details. That’s the difference.
You may think you know what you’re going to write your college admissions essay about but, before you do, read this list to learn what topics you should avoid and why.
1. A Summary of Your Accomplishments College essays are similar to life and, in life, nobody likes a braggart. These topics are broad, unfocused and make a boring read.
You may have accomplished a lot, but let your essay speak by allowing the reader to get to know you as a person through your experiences – not through you telling them how accomplished you are.
After reading your essay, a person should be able to come up with their own assessment of you – people don’t like to be told how to think.
2. Highly Polarized or Sensitive Topics The key topics to avoid here are the same as those at the Thanksgiving table: politics and religion.
Avoid preaching about sensitive topics, no matter how passionate you are about a particular one. You never know who is going to be reading your admissions essay and the goal at hand is to gain admission into college.
3. Sports The sports essay is predictable and should be avoided, if possible. Everyone knows how an athletic story will play out, regardless of the story or the sport. Find another topic that is unique and hasn’t been covered a million times over.
Admissions officers have heard enough about “the thrill of victory” and “the agony of defeat” in relation to high school athletics and they are sick and tired of pretending to care.
4. Humor Stop trying to be so funny. You may have a story in your essay that’s funny and that’s okay – but that’s different. Make sure you’re funny for a reason and not just funny because you’re attempting to be. If it comes out naturally in your essay, great. If it doesn’t, then don’t force it. Admissions officers will see the futile attempt – and likely not find it amusing.
5. Why You’re SO Lucky We get it. You’re privileged and you appreciate it, which is great. However, discussing it doesn’t make for a great essay. It’s actually super boring and, perhaps, may cause some eyes to roll.
Avoid this topic at all costs unless you’re starting with that followed up with some along the lines of, “…so I decided to leave my cushy private school to switch places at a public high school in Detroit with an inner-city teen and this is what happened.” Now THAT would make for an interesting essay.
6. Volunteer Experiences & Trips This may be one of the most popular essay topics out there…and it’s also one of the most boring clichés around. Nobody needs a summary of your vacation – people know what happens on mission trips and during volunteer hours.
While you should feel free to mention a great experience or trip, but your entire essay should not talk about your one experience volunteering during a mission trip in Costa Rica.
If you do want to bring up these topics, try to think of something interesting or unexpected that happened during your trip.
Did a particular person or experience have an impact on you? Specific happenings can make great topics – try to think of something unusual and craft your essay around that experience, instead. (See example within the opening of this article.)
So, you’re creative, smart and so over this whole essay thing. You’re not going to be put inside a box with a regular essay; you’re going to do your own thing. You’re going to whatever you feel like writing. Some of the best and brightest students do this: basically, they create the anti-essay.
Fine, but be prepared to write whatever you feel like writing from a college that may not be your first choice.
Whether it’s a poem, a random stream of thoughts, sarcasm, or some other form of writing in order to feel more creative, it’s not always the best idea. Before you do this, remember one thing: the sole purpose of your college essay is to get into college. You can show off later.
8. Illegal or Illicit Behavior Drug and alcohol use, sex, arrests and/or jail time are topics that you should steer clear of, even if they are life issues you’ve worked through.
You would not want your judgment to be called into question for the decisions you’ve made (even if they are in the past) or for making the decision to write about the decisions you’ve made. Either way, it’s risky business to go this route and is not recommended.
9. The Most Important [Person, Place, Thing] in My Life Read this aloud. Doesn’t this topic sound like an assignment that a second or third grader would write about? It really does and, if a child can handle it, it probably won’t gain you a lot of points with college admissions officers.
10. Tragedies Topics like death and divorce are cautionary because they can be extremely difficult to write about.
While these topics are tough, if you feel passionately that a particular tragedy impacted your life significantly and you do want to write about it, try to keep the essay’s focus on you.
Think about your feelings regarding the situation, how it affected you and what you learned from the experience rather than just simply recalling the situation or the person you lost.
