Setting-up Twitter Account for Her

My niece has Facebook account.  She told me that it was her classmate who made an account for her since I refused to make her a Facebook account.  I refused because I do not want her to for she is young.  And her age is not qualified yet.  I told her that she has to wait till she reach the age of 18.  I do not want her to involve in this kind of social media account.  In short, I just want to protect her from those bad stuffs on social media.  But, she has an account now and there is nothing I can do.  I just have to watch her and supervise her.

Right now, she is very active in Facebook.  Chatting to her friends and classmates and updating pictures.  She is enjoying it.  I always reminded her of avoid opening links/video for her own good.  After Facebook, she now wants to have a Twitter account.  OMG!  She is bugging me for days.  So now, I am setting-up Twitter account for her.  She wants to be updated on the latest of her favorite love team ALDUB.  Yes, she is a fan.  A big fan to be exact.  My niece is very much active of these social media thing.  And I cannot stop her.  I guess I just have to double my supervision and being alert for her safety.

It stops working

My old laptop is four years old.  I hand it over to my sister for two years already and she has been using it since then.  But because it is a bit heavy, the sister decided to buy netbook.  She is still using the old laptop though because some of her files at school is saved in the old laptop.  Just recently, she thought of handing over the old laptop to the niece because niece needs laptop at school.  The sister started transferring her old files to finally hand over the laptop to the niece.  However, the laptop suddenly stops working.

OMG!  I guess the old laptop is hurts that is why it stops working.  The sister is sad because she just bought new battery for the old laptop and the laptop is stopped working.  How can she give it to my niece?  Another expenses is about to happen I must say but the sister is on a tight budget.  The handing over of the old laptop might take longer because it needs to be repaired and the sister has no money for that now.  Just be patient my niece, you will have this laptop next year, we hope.

Happy to have new phone

She got her first phone when she finished with honors a year ago.  It was my award for the job well done.  Also I promise that whoever finished with honors will get a reward of their choice.  And the niece chooses phone.  Unfortunately, the phone lasted for months only.  She did not take good care of it.  Yes, I am so angry because she is being careless, I scolded her and get mad at her but there is no use because the damage is already done.   I should not give her phone then.  However, a promise is a promise and I am keeping it.  She deserves to get the reward of her choice.

After her phone gets busted, she does not have phone.  We are worried because we cannot check on her at school since she goes home on her own from school.  Her grandfather gave her another phone, and it is busted as well.  Made me realized that this girl is not bad luck when it comes to having phone.lol  The classes will start soon and her older sister will be studying in different school.  Even if I am angry, I think she’ll be needing a phone.  I asked my brother if he could give to her his old phone since he bought new one.  At first my brother did not answer, but I never give up until he said yes.  The niece has new phone now and she is so happy.  I told her to be careful this time because this will be the last time we are giving her phone.  Next time, she has to buy herself phone using her own money.   I hope that she will take good care of it.  Good luck to the new phone.whew*

Showing her some techniques

Not like her older sister, my other niece is a bit slow in mathematics especially in division. She is having a hard time to solve problem in division in more than four digits. She is trying her best though. I have told her older sister to help her in solving division problems. However, instead of teaching her it is her older sister who will solve the problems and will give to her the answer with the solutions. What my niece did is wrong because she is not helping her sister at all. I want her to teach her little by little for her to know the steps so she can solve it alone.

I did not like what the older niece did, so even if I do not like I teach the niece instead and showing her some techniques to make the division in multiple number easy and fast. I am sharing the same techniques I used when I was still studying. I am not good in mathematics but math is one of my favorite subjects. It took us almost three hours solving their division assignments in mathematics. I give my very best and share some techniques to the niece too. I do hope that she will use it and practice more for her to appreciate the mathematics subject especially the division. Also, one of the reason I am teaching the teach my simple techniques is for her to not be dependent with the calculator for I know calculator won’t help her at all.
