If you want to have a great relationship with your kids … you have to learn to listen to them and their feelings …. akala ko nuon dahil isa akong magulang e ako parati ang tama at masusunod … pero na realized ko mali pala yon lalo na kapag matatanda na ang mga anak mo at kung may sarili ng mga isip … nagpapasalamat ako sa dyos na binigyan ako ng mga mamatalinong anak at mayron mga ginintong mga puso … i want to thank my kids just for being them and loving me unconditionaly … i promise that dad will be here to guide you and most specially to listen to you … i love you …. and to my wife i love you so and thank you …. last night was a great one …
(I thought back then that because I am the parent, I am always right and should be followed. But I have realized that this is wrong, especially when your kids are older and can think for themselves.)
He then expressed his gratitude for having smart and kind-hearted children. Estrada added: “I want to thank my kids just for being them and loving me [unconditionally].”
“I promise that dad will be here to guide you and most specially to listen to you,” he then assured his children.
Kaila, Inah and Moira are Estrada’s children with ex-wife Janice de Belen. He is currently married to Miss Globe 2003 winner Priscilla Meirelles, with whom he has another daughter named Sammanta Anechka. /ra
