Get to know trending kids ‘Bilog’ and ‘Bunak’

They shared a glimpse into their lives on the morning talk show, Magandang Buhay on Tuesday, January 31.

During the show, host Jolina Magdangal mentioned the advice of psychologist Randy Dellosa that while petty quarrels among children, particularly siblings are normal, they tend to get trivialized. Hence, parents were advised to get involved in situations as such and teach their children to address their emotions in a positive way.

Annaliza, the mother of Bilog (girl) and Bunak (boy), then admitted that she has her shortcomings as a single mother to five children. A vendor working day and night, she said, “Siyempre po maghapon, magdamag, nagtitinda po ako. Wala pong sumusubaybay sa kanila, diyan po ako nagkukulang.”

However, she said that despite their kids’ little quarrels, Bilog is a responsible daughter. “Kapag po nagtitinda ako, siya lang po ‘yung naiiwan sa baby ko,” she said.

Bilog, for her part, said that she and Bunak usually argue whenever her younger brother is disobedient.

Annaliza said she would always remind her children, “Magmahalan po sila kasi sila lang din po magtutulungan magkakapatid.”
