I am a family oriented person. I am a pro family no matter what.. I have a small family, I am the eldest and one sibling which is younger half my age.. I am 24 right now and he is going 16 this december.. Sad to say, my father died 3 years ago..I became the head of the family. I send my brother to school and took care of my mother.. But I am very happy with what I am doing:),

I am living now with my mother and my brother.. As for me I cannot afford to live without them and far from them.. I can live far from them but still have to visit them once in a while.. I am still single and If ever I got to have my own family I want to leave just near and I'd like my mother to live with us.. Thanks..

I am also a family oriented person. I feel like my life will be different without my family around. My family has been so far is the very reason why I am doing what I am doing and why I am persevering to achieve the dreams I have for my parents and brothers.

if i am at your position, i will d the same althoug i know there are some difficulties of being head of the family. i am the youngest and we are only two. my sister got his own family at the age of 14 and i am 10 years old on that time. she ddnt finished even high school, and my mother decide not to send me to school because of what my sister done, but my father argued because me is not my sister and my sister is not me. i finished college and now i got a job and also got married at the age of 24. im now 27 years old, we have 2 kids.

Hi nice its nice to know that you are also from the philippines. In your situation that happen also with my cousin, good thing for you that you still pursue into college..Unfortunately my cousin was not able to go to college because of what his older sister have done..After graduation in college elope with his boyfriend.. My auntie was traumatize with what had happen to the eldest but I strongly agree she should have not generalize her daughters for what might happen. Happy Mylotting!!

Hi dorothy,I admire you..that is a lovely thing to do especially at such a young age..my fsmily is close knit too and we see that as our parents have brought us up all our lives it is now our turn to look after them, even my son helps my mum and as my mum has said out of all her grandsons he is the only one whom has been there for him...it is a comforting thought that he cares that much for his nan too. It is lovely to know that you are happy looking after your family, and you should be proud of yourself...your dad will be bless him...hugs littleowl
