Old filipino values and traditions



What are your concerns as a Filipino today?

1. One of my concerns as a Filipino today is to let our new generation kids and the next generation kids to come the old filipino values and traditions that our parents thought us way back when we were kids then. Most of the kids right now are no longer saying "OPO" and "PO" with our elders, mostly the grandparents nowadays. How come we all forget all of this teachings coming from them as their gift to us so that when we have our own family and kids we can teach them the proper values as a person. Hope and pray that from this day on i can still see some kids says or response our elderly "OPO" and "PO" when they are having conversations. Only a few grandparents are alive nowadays who are still trying to teach their grandsons and granddaughters the old filipino values and traditions. Another one is to introduce kids about money and how they can save and spend it. Let's give our kids the opportunity to teach them how to save and how to spend money. Next is to teach them the ways how to groom themselves with proper hygiene too. Proper grooming is very, very important specially with proper hygiene too, as parents you should be the one to be their models so that when you go out and have some time together you are all presentable in the eyes of the people.
