MANILA — How can parents ensure that children know their values?

In an interview on DZMM, Bro. Clem Guillermo, a professional counselor, believe that the problem lies with how children and the youth are trained.

“The problem is, who are to train? Right now maraming pamilya ang wala ang mga magulang, so hard to train. Pangalawa, maraming nagtetrain at maraming nagtuturo na ‘yung sinasabi ng lips, hindi ginagawa ng buhay, so walang credibility,” he said.

This lack of proper training leads to misunderstanding of values, making children and the youth belief certain truths and facts based on their own experiences.

“Ang nangyayari ngayon, marami tayong mga kabataan, wala na silang, ‘ika nga eh, ang mga kabataan natin ngayon, nagdedevelop sila ng bagong kultura, na mayroon silang sariling value system. So, ang maraming kabataan ngayon, ang katotohanan sa kanila ay personal, at saka ‘yung tinatawag natin na experiential, ‘depende to sa karanasan ko,'” Guillermo explained.

With this current trend, the youth, and even some parents, tend to share almost anything on social media, without thinking of the consequences of the pieces of information they shared online.

“May sarili siyang gusto, pero sana maisip ng bawat magulang na ang ginagawa ninyo, tinitingnan ng bata,” Guillermo said.

“Highly subjective ang values na sinusunod ng mga tao simply because wala naman talaga tayong standards na sinusunod,” he added.

For Guillermo, it is important for parents to live by example, so as to ensure that their children still know their values.

“Alam natin ang values natin, we subscribe to that values na kung minsan, kahit hindi mo ituro, nakikita ng mga bata sa buhay mo, ginagaya.”

He added that not spending too much time with children should not be an excuse for not teaching values to children, as parents can look for other ways to teach their children.

“Umisip ng paraan para kahit papaano, ang mga values ay maituro pa rin. Pwede rin na turuan ang mga nag-aalaga,” Guillermo said.
