Today marks the first anniversary of the book launch of Raising Pinoy Boys (See The Launch). As I mentioned in my yearender, I am very thankful for so many things that have happened since then.
I wish to share with you a poem entitled BE THERE which I included in the final chapter of the book. I wrote this during a writing class I took up under Tweetums Gonzales in January 2007. We were asked to write a poem that teaches a lesson. I chose to write a lesson on child rearing. I usually end my parenting talks by playing this poem because it somehow describes my take on parenting. I invite you to listen to the poem and imagine your own parenting journey with your precious children. I hope you enjoy the experience which is made special by the background music composed and performed by my son Enrique.
Happy listening and happy parenting!
