Budget Parenting

The whole family (all the five of us, except for my mom) is sleeping inside one room – a very typical sleeping setup of an average Filipino family. As much as I wanted to get my children their own bedroom sets and teach them independency, I don’t have the luxury of spending another thousand on another air conditioning unit and on its monthly bill that it is going to generate in the future. We stay all together in a room for economic reasons none the less.

But, if I would be blessed to have more financial capacity, I won’t be fickle with my decision. I will buy my children comfortable bedroom sets and another air conditioning unit for them to sleep soundly at night. Aside from bedroom sets, I am also planning to buy them individual study tables and cabinet for their clothes. I want to teach not only independency but also develop independent study habits and responsibilities in taking care of one’s belongings. Not that I am not teaching them right now, but this one is for level ups!

  1. Yup, our Meralco bills are ridiculously high. I pray P-Noy would do something about that so we can have lower rates and our children could have their own room with air-con.
