PPBC 5th edition - What do you want your Children to be when they grow up?

Finally, here is the summary of the entries for Pinoy Parenting Blog Carnival 5th edition (PPBC). Being a proud father of two growing kids, I find this question very interesting. I am glad to announce that all entries were exciting and valuable to read. There were new ones who wholeheartedly accepted my invitation.

So without further ado, here they are.

Doc Joey

The humble originator of this carnival, whose husband is also a doctor like her, finds it cute that her son is being teased as Dr. E or a doctor, too. However, she emphasizes that she will not push him to follow their footsteps. Instead, she will teach him how to invest money so he will not be poor someday.

Joan Joyce

Once dubbed as the Entrecard Queen, she dreams of her daughter to be a good doctor someday. This is because she noticed that her daughter is good in memorizing fast. Coincidentally, this is also the dream of her parents when she was young. However, she will not impose it but rather expose her.

Guardian Angel

I have a pair of children, my daughter is 12 and my son is 7. She is hyperactive and can easily go along with people, so I think she can be a good talk show host or a broadcaster someday. As of my son, his curiousness about cars can drive him to be a successful engineer when time comes.


Being my partner in Entrecard, two of his four children are now in college taking up Nursing and Marine transportation, respectively. For the other two, he just hope that they will be responsible and GOD fearing citizens of this country. He even mentioned that finishing college these days is not a guarantee of a bright future tomorrow – very true!


Being an Industrial Engineer herself, she hopes her children to have careers that are related in Math and Science because she thinks analyzing some things can help to overcome other problems in life. But she feels that it is the character that really helps one to be successful.


Being married to a Korean, she sees her son as being a multi-talented child. She dreams he can be a great dancer, an engineer or a TV personality someday. According to her, competition in Korea is very stiff. But then, she will be supportive whatever her son wants to be someday, as long as he is happy and not hurting anyone.


Having no doctor in her family, she hopes that at least one of her children can be a medical practitioner someday. But her dream for all of them is to travel around the world, as well as to be a wide reader. According to her, it is nice to wake up to see the sun in different parts of the world.


Although she has millions of dreams for her son, she thinks Joaqui can be a great musician someday because loves to watch and hear someone singing. But she also noticed that her son can also be a chef because he also loves to eat. Whatever his son would be, she hopes he can live a full life with kindness and love in his heart.


Although she thinks that her son being an engineer or a computer professional someday who can cope with this fast-pacing world, she would like her son to serve GOD and to be active in the church ministry. To attain this, she is guiding him very much in terms of honesty, respect and faith.


Because she sees her son as a keen observer about structures and mechanical things, she dreams he can either be a civil or mechanical someday. But just as her parents did not force her to be someone she does not like, she will do the same as long as his son will be a positive builder.

Girl for all status

A brave and strong mother that she is shares her experiences about her special child who was diagnosed with Autism eighteen months after birth. With this, she only dreams that her child will grow as normal as she can be and can surpassed all the challenges she will face. Now, MG is as strong and as sweet as her mother.

To view their entire entries, please click their names.

Whew! What a great list! Different kinds of parents with different principles in life, but with a common dream – to have their children grow as great caretakers of the next generation and enjoying the freedom to choose while picking up the good traits and junking the bas ones. .

With this, I would like to thank you all for giving your precious time and sharing your dreams to the world. I enjoyed reading them and learned some lessons as well.

Lastly, I am again the host for the 6th edition and I will be making a separate post very soon.

I hope you can still join and invite others as well.
