Last Friday is my eldest daughter recognition day and we take time and effort to attend and show too how proud we are for her achievements. It is sad that it is not the same with her other classmates. Some of the awardee approach our group to ask if someone from us could join them when it is time for them to go to stage to get their award. A parent even joke that if he was in their position, he will not attend the ceremony. There are students which their parents are abroad to earn a living but at least someone from the family should go with them in this important ceremony. Every awardee have done their best to deserve each honor and award that will given to them, I hope that their family will also recognize their effort. As the principal told in her welcome remarks, today is harvest time, not only for the children but also for the parents who untiringly supported their children the whole year round. I wouldn't miss this harvest time for anything in this world! I hope you too would take time for a every important occasion in your child's life.

I admire fathers who are spending quality time with their children and attends occasions in school. There are only few of you who are doing that because most fathers are at work which most of the time is abroad. Your kids are very lucky to have you. I hope you'll continue that way so that we could raise new generations of citizens which will help improve our country.

Hello there! What you said were true. I also attended my 7 year old daughter's recognition last week, but I am pleased to say that almost if not all parents were present to spend the hours of recognition ceremony to their children who studied and did their crafts wonderfully during this school year that's why they were there, to reap the rewards of their hard work. I am very proud of y daughter, she's an achiever ever since. Though she's not on the highest rank, being cited as one of the brightest was enough bonus for me and her father. I promise to myself that I will be at her side always, thru ups and downs, I wil be not just a mother but a friend to her, yes, I agree with you that all parents should be like this especially when their child needs someone to share his/her achievements like this recognition ceremony. This will enable them to pursue and work harder because they knew that they have someone to share their battles with. Good night!

Thank you for sharing the same sentiment with me. You're daughter is happier to know that she has a very supportive parents. For me, guidance and support to our children should not only through words, but we are physically with them. Congratulations to your daughter and God Bless both of you!

Sorry, I could not agree with you. For my daughter, it is important with her that we attended the ceremony with her.

We should be proud and supportive to our children whatever accomplishment they get or award the achieved. Attending their recognition is one way to show how important they are to us. Once in a while even how busy we might be, we should set a side some time other things and pay attention on our children's need just like an occasion like this, because this is rare occasion only done once in every year, every before school year ended and this is one of the obligations of parent to school whether it is public or private school.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. Imagine, how many of them in a class? In Philippine settings, there are 40-50 students in a class and there are at least 5 sections in a school level. Being one of those who excelled academically or in arts or sports, is a great honor... not only for the students but also for the parents. I personally think that during this moment, not only the students are being rewarded but also the parents.
