WELCOME TO CHATEAU DU MER BEACH RESORT
If this is your first time in my site, welcome! Chateau Du Mer is a beach resort with a beach house and conference Hall. The beach house could now accommodate 10 guests, six in the main floor and four in the first floor( air conditioned room). In addition, you can now reserve your vacation dates ahead and pay the rental fees via PayPal. I hope to see you soon in Marinduque- Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines. The photo above was taken during our first Garden Wedding ceremony at The Chateau Du Mer Gardens. You can now read the national and international news in this blog at the right side bar. I have also posted my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own, but I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights!

What to do if your Child has a Low Self-Esteem
The other day, I learned that my 11-year old grand daughter thinks she is ugly. In fact she is a beauty, not because I am her Lolo, but that is the reality ( see photo above). She is a Filipino-American MESTIZA with an Irish-Italian father. Because of her poor image of herself she lashes her anger and frustrations to her Mom. I started reading several articles on the subject. However, the one I found helpful was published on empoweringparents.com. It is a fairly long article, but the following are three things a parent should do to improve his/her child self esteem and poor image of himself or herself.
1.Teach your child how to identify the problem at hand.
2.Guide your child as they learn how to solve their problems.
3.Set limits on your child’s behavior, which ultimately shows her/him how to be more independent as they develop.
My own personal opinion is: Love your child and pay more attention to him or her. There is no better solution than to praise your child as often as you can without being a fake.
If your child think she is ugly, tell her she is pretty and beautiful and that you love her for who she is and not what she thinks she is.
