I am her Mother

At the Oprah Winfrey show for mother’s day, Helen Williams, mother of actress and singer Vanessa Williams, when asked what she thinks about moms and daughters getting along and being best friends, simply replied

“I am her Mother, she has friends …”

I guess a parent’s job is first and foremost to be a parent to one’s child. Although establishing a rapport and getting on their good side is also good, being honest to them and enforcing what you think is best for them simply comes first.

I can only hope to be able to strike that balance when my time comes.

On another note, “Ang Tanging Ina”, a Filipino film about a single mom (Ai-Ai de las Alas) and her twelve children, often gets shown on local or cable TV, during this day in the Philippines. The movie is simply hilarious but quite a tear-jerker as well with Ai-Ai borrowing famous lines and dialogues from other well-known drama movies in the Philippines. This may have been intentionally done for humor but I believe these are actually reminiscent of a typical Filipino family. All these melodramatic scenes we see on TV and in the movies are actually affecting our lives and influencing how we react in more ways than one. I swear one scene from the movie was spot on to an experience I just had a few weeks back.

Remember how our parents reprimand us from watching too much TV? Now that were older, can we advise them of the same? ^^ TV and the movies are really entertaining but for our sakes, we should really limit this and find other forms of entertainment.
