My 27th Month Old: Language Preference + Familoop Giveaway

While it’s true that I’m presently concerned with Chloe’s speech development I love the idea of exposing her to different languages aside from Tagalog presumably foreign ones like English and Thai. I know it would be extremely difficult for her to catch up and add more confusion to her slow speech progress but I’m looking into the longer-lasting benefits of hearing unique foreign sounds. And the catch is that kids learn languages more easily during these times while their brains are working feverishly great compared to mine. Yes, maybe she would have smaller vocabularies but I know she’s picking up countless words I’m telling her more than what she could actually say.

I’m working on this by taking a video of her during our “study time with Chloe” sessions wherein I encourage her to repeat the words after me. This strategy works well when she’s busy playing or watching TV than forcing her to say it again over time. I noticed this when her Dad tried to copy my style but with a twist of “say it!” in the end and Chloe typically responds with a default face blankly staring at the ceiling. Chloe just says NO to every single word. Lol!

While I appreciate people talking to her in English I encourage some to speak their native languages like Thai people we encounter on elevators and restaurants. I’m okay with only me doing the entire English conversations with her since English is not my main language and I can improve my confidence lingo along the way –you know!

And I can always buy her some books we could read together or lend her my phone and choose whatever youtube channels she can watch when I’m not around, as an additional familiarity that can boost her brain.

And speaking of technology when kids park themselves in front of the computer and ditch their toys over tabs and iPad the struggle of safeguarding them around the clock is REAL! You’re lucky if your kid doesn’t show a bit of interest to phone/computer but if your toddler can operate the phone or computer better than your adult self then we’re in the same boat and it’s not a good ride.

Luckily, Chloe’s online activities and gadget are installed with Familoop’s Parental Control Software wherein I can check what she’s doing, how long she’s staying online and if she’s running into trouble. This way I can focus on being a cool parent preparing her to be a multilingual kid in a foreign land instead of constantly battling over phone/computer limits.

How does it work?

Familoop Safeguard makes it easy for us parents to check on our kid’s online activity by managing all their devices in one control software. By bringing all this information together we’ll have a better picture of our child’s digital life and never will we get a feeling of missing something out.

My personal experience;

So I went to try on their 10-day free trial and have this amazing experience navigating their application manager. In fact, I'll extend this amazing experience to one year, yay! Since Chloe's personal phone I gave her for playing videos and games was broken a few days ago, I installed Familoop on my own device but with Chloe's account. The problem with our kids using our phone is that they might access our personal apps like online shopping and do terrible things. One day, this fear was realized when Chloe unintentionally answered my personal messages on Messenger  and even went as far as commenting on my friends' social media updates. (Mind you, my friend's online incident was worst, her kid bought expensive app game on her iPad by accident).

This is where Familoop Safeguard comes in when Chloe mistakenly click on my apps aside from her games a warning sign will pop out "this app is blocked due to age rating" and at the same time, Familoop will send me a prompt email that "Chloe launched an application Messenger". This way Chloe will not be able to open any application (esp spam messages or apps) or answer my personal messages by accident because Familoop will block it for her.

My Verdict:

The moment I receive warning signs, I felt a sudden relief and security with my child's online activities. I highly recommend you do sign-up at their website and try it for 10 days for free on all your child’s devices. You can also check and follow their Facebook page and Twitter for more updates. I admit, I was a bit lost between information but after watching their Interactive Live Demo I was able to navigate their website and know their product formally and quickly. Note: if in any case you want to uninstall the product, don't fret! You can always deactivate the product on your account then uninstall it from your device ;)

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

How To Instantly Add Luxury To Your Wardrobe

As you have probably guessed, I literally spend a good part of my day shopping online. Yep, when major sales popped out, I'll stop what I'm doing to catch a glimpse on which of those pieces look good on me. To the point, I recently spent a morning scrolling through a dozen items on shopping websites. Making me the perfect target consumer when it comes to social media marketing ads. Ha! Sadly, however, I can’t possibly purchase everything on my wishlist and so every now and then I blog about my current favorites hoping somebody can benefit from the fruits of my labor. While there are specific brands I love to cover on a weekly basis today I like to highlight and celebrate similar brands for cheap yet elegant staples to give you more unique and fashion-forward options. Just keep scrolling to get started shopping and see a couple of elegant dresses to keep your outfit on point.

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
