The Holy Week is one of the most revered and sacred holidays for most Christians. It is a time to reflect, repent and return to the Lord who so graciously gave up His life for His people. It is also a time for families to reconnect and bond. The Marriott Manila opens its doors to patrons for a blissful family retreat where mommies, daddies and their kids can enjoy a relaxing weekend together.

It’s right around that time when students are bombarded with their quarterly examinations and completion of first quarter requirements. It definitely is a stressful time for both kids and moms alike. While some parents capitalize on the weekends to catch up on lessons and do some advanced reading, I am a firm believer in keeping weekends fun family bonding time.
In my many years of teaching, I have noticed how different school work has become. It seems that children are expected to learn so much more in shorter amounts of time. Sometimes I am shocked at the concepts being discussed as early as the first grade. Also, kids seem to need more tutoring and academic support, as compared to how it was when I was younger. This deserves it’s own blog post in the future, but for now, I’d like to focus on this: spend weekends for fun.
Taking the kids to the park or the mall, watching a movie, or playing boardgames at home as a family, for example, does not necessarily have to be just a “fun” experience. These can be venues for lifelong learning of important life skills.
