My Daughter’s Interests

  • Sumo

My eldest daughter loves to read. This is one thing that she really loves to do since immemorial. But she loves more if I or her dad reads for her before she finally dozes off at night.

As she grows old, her interests also progress. Aside from reading, she has started to enjoy drawing and writing letters for me and her dad. Sometimes I amazed of her drawings especially how she draws a person. It is very detail and she even the name of the person in her drawing. I remember that during her age, I can only draw stick people. She is better than me, I must admit 😀

Writing to my parents is something that I have never done because I was not mold to do such. So I am so happy whenever I received a letter from my daughter. She even wants me and her dad signed it.  I keep her letters because I want to show it to her when she is all grown-up.

Recently, she is showing interest for puzzles. Last quarter, she used her merit money, the credit given to the students in their school whenever they got a perfect score in their PACE test, to buy a small puzzle, a doll, and marbles. I will not be surprised if she will ask me to buy her cobble hill puzzles in the future. That is if her interest and enthusiasm to complete a puzzle didn’t subside.

  1. my youngest daughter loves to read and she has written short novels well. I think it was because of her love for reading that she is able to write well.

  2. I have read that enhancing our child’s interest and where they are at bestis much better than encouraging to do multi-task. I can also see my son loves books and music so we will focus much there. 🙂

  3. With the advent of electronics, many of the kids are not into reading nor into crafts or writing letter.This is very special that she still does this. I am hoping that my son would read more even if it is in the iPad or computer but these gadgets tempt them to do many other things!

  4. my daughter is into puzzles too. whatever she likes to do, we are willing to support her as long as it will hone her interests. i’m just having a little trouble when it comes to reading. she loves to read but she wants me to do it for her rather than do it by herself. 😛

  5. I think you may have a little artist there. 🙂 Puzzle solving is a great way to exercise a child’s brain. Identifying and learning through visual cues is the easiest way to learn especially now when everything is so visual.

  6. I still have a long way to go for Julia to start reading. I’m starting off with her vowel sounds, the old school way “BA BE BI BO BU” hahah. Sabi ng asawa ko, what is that you’re teaching her, tagalog? I think the way Arabs teach their children to read is different from our standards. Visiting from CommEx Oct16.

    1. I observed that it is better if the child learns first the proper pronunciation of the alphabet in English rather than in Filipino. Mas madali makacatch-up ung bata sa Filipino kung matuto muna syang magbasa in English 🙂

  7. It’s really fun to be with kids and guiding them as they grow old. Discovering their gifts are the most exciting part.

  8. That’s sweet 🙂 Seldom does my son write me a letter but he gives me a number of his drawings a day. Instead of writing a ‘sorry letter’, he gives me drawing of a heart crying buckets of tears 🙂 Agreed. Your daughter will treasure her letters that you kept when she’s older 🙂

  9. It’s really nice to hear about kids growing up in the proper way, with interests that I am sure will take her places. I think she’s gifted on the artistic side…literature, drawing, etc. Reminds me of someone I now very much… 🙂

  10. If she loves to read, I wouldn’t be surprised if she takes to writing eventually. 🙂 It’s great that she also dabbles on creative arts and toys that stimulate logical thinking.

  11. That’s so sweet of your daughter to be writings for you. It must be so nice to receive letters from her. When I was a kid, I only wrote to my dad when it was required by the school (during recollections and retreats).

    I hope my Henry writes me letters as well. But as of now, I am just so happy when he asks for hugs and kisses.
