Netizen Hany Marcelino shared a photo of a reminder made by DepEd on how important the role of parents is to the upbringing and development of their children. The post, written by the Department of Education’s Schools Division Office in Santiago City, outlined the roles parents and guardians should always keep in mind.

The first reminder goes “We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry and thank you all begin to be learned at home.”

The second, “It’s also at home that children learn to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as show utmost respect for their elders and all their teachers.”

Third, “Home is also where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how/where to dispose their garbage properly.”

Fourth, “Home is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not okay to touch others.”

Fifth, “Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, math, history, geography, physics, sciences and physical education. We only reinforce the education that children receive in their home from their parents.

Lastly, “With this, we appeal from you to help us instill discipline at all times to your children.”

The post has been met with support from parents, guardians and even teachers. They all agreed that cooperation between parents and the school is vital to a child’s good upbringing.
