How Far Will Your Love For Your Children Go?

This morning, I was dumbfounded when I saw this post on Yahoo News:



Truth be told, most of our young people nowadays are having an exceptional attitude- some are mean, while, (a good thing) there are still those who are getting the right values from their parents. Like this particular teen who pushes his new BMW into the river simply because he doesn't like it. I really felt sorry for the parents. I do not know how the parents would feel with the ingrate son. Instead of thanking them, he displayed such a disgusting attitude.

Loving our children is our obligation, however, we, as parents, should know our limitations- or our boundaries. We can pamper them but we should not spoil them like giving them everything their hearts desire-even if it's beyond their needs. It's just like raising a lion that will readily devour us when they will get the chance. 

Let us raise our children in accordance with what is right and proper. Let us give them all they need, but we should not feel obliged to give them what they want.
It is called- DISCIPLINE.

Why Do We Need to Get Insured?

If there's one thing that I regret the most because I procrastinate is getting myself insured. Well, every time I have applied for a loan in a private lending institutions, it always comes with a life insurance however, it is co-terminus with the number of years that the loan was applied for.

It was only last year that I fully decided to get one. Good thing my financial adviser was able to explained it well. Only then I realized that have I got it way back when I was still young and capable, I would have already enjoyed its benefits by now.  But anyway, it's not yet too late. In spite of the fact that I have so many financial obligations for my family, I have to pursue this. After all, it;s been a year already and I am so happy that I made it!

Being the breadwinner, this is one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Thank you Lord for sustaining me.

The All-New GCash Apps

I've been a GCash user since it was introduced to the public, even before its apps is not yet available at the Google Playstore. The features of GCash and everything that they offered is just so amazing! From online money transfer to almost all banks to paying bills and even e-loading- they are all so awesome and so helpful for a busy working Mom like me. Sad to say, not all were totally aware of its existence and if they do, they have less appreciation about it.

GCash app is very easy to use and its interface are so user-friendly. There are still other great features about the all-new GCash but maybe in some other time. If you are interested, just leave a message!
