When we started homeschooling three years ago, I thought I could skip teaching my son about our National Anthem. Although, we have encountered the national symbols including the national anthem in our Social Studies class in Grade 1, I never really took the time to explain to him what the lyrics mean. Until about last year, when the concept of nationalism came up in one our conversations. I will not dwell on the actual conversation per se but it dawned on me that our homeschooling is not complete without paying homage to our motherland and instilling in our kids minds that we are Filipinos and must be proud to be one.
