I look forward to your replies and advice." Hi Silabay, As a filipina from Philippines moving to what you called "The First World Country " i do manage with my Philippines school taught english. Our school and education are not of that you callled the first world standard, but i am proud to say, that we send Filipinos abroad with first world standard of works quality and dedication. Children will learned as they grow, and the best lesson you can start them learning is to adapt and to be resourceful in any endeavours come their way. You know that your children life will be well and better than yours, its because, you want the atmost best for them. Knowing too, that whatever they want in life is not in your control but them at all as they grow and choose their own path. Think about your remaining retirement days. Make the most of it with happiness with your family. Your children has a life of their own to make and your example to make yourself and your family happy is the basis of your children best future. Life in general is not at all about what we learned in school, but what we learned everyday and being a person with good values, honesty and perseverance to live a decent life.
