Dental Care for Children

Last week, we took all our children to the dentist.  We usually schedule them for dental cleaning and check-up twice a year.  We try to keep that schedule to assure they get proper dental care for children.

The dentist had not so good news for Kristel and Janel.  She said that we had to do something about their cavities.  Kristel, right there and then, had one tooth applied with dental filling to prevent further decay.  Janel, on the other hand, has several teeth that are starting to have cavities.  The dentist suggested that she place sealants on them to prevent further decays.  But we decided to schedule her for another visit.

Emmuel, my eldest son, also had his first dental x-ray.  He is already 10 and the dentist suggested that he should be seen by an orthodentist.  His teeth are getting crowded and are not growing properly, so we need to seek advice from the orthodentist what is the best thing to do about his teeth.  Since the orthodentist was not available, we also had to schedule him on another appointment.

It is important for our kids to take care of their teeth. It will help them have a healthy smile and boost their confidence.  We, moms and dads have a role to play in teaching them how to. I have made a post before how we can take care of our kid's teeth.  I also found a website called Children's Choice Pediatric Dental Care.  They have informative articles published in their site that would help us in our children's quest for healthy teeth.

Hi Yellow Bells. If I remember it right, depending on the age of the child, the orthodentist would determine if there is indeed crowding of teeth. My son had some teeth (2, I think) which were extracted because of this.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
