Problems Faced by Filipino Families – Ed Lapiz

Posted on September 26, 2008. Filed under: Ed Lapiz | Tags: , , , , |

Today, around 10% of the Filipino population is working abroad.  This is the reason why so many Filipino families only have one parent at home. Marcos and Ople made it a policy to export labor.  There was social unrest because of the lack of jobs.  But now, thousands, even millions of Filipinos are raring to go abroad.  While some have contemplated staying in the country after saving money, some things hold them back.  Materialism is often at the top of it.  The desire to live a luxurious life forces parents to leave their families just so they can provide for their wants.

Solutions

1. Avoid the extreme.  You can enjoy life even without wearing branded clothes or luxurious things.

2. Work to live, not live to work.

3. Don’t bite advertising.

4. Don’t always follow trends.

5. Take a stand

Ang kagandahan, nagpapalit ng kahulugan.
