“Ako ang number one rule ko talaga, never hinder your children to see their fathers or their mothers kung kabaligtaran man ‘yung sitwasyon nila na kunwari single dad sila.
“Huwag nilang papabayaan na may ma-miss out ‘yung parent na ‘yun sa buhay nila. Kasi one way or another, kahit sabihin mong walang epekto sa bata, meron at meron eh.
“Kasi I came from a broken family. Noong una sabi ko wala namang epekto, eh. As I grow up, meron, eh. So it’s the constant reminder to your kids na, ‘Hey, hindi man tayo buo, but you know you can be complete as a person, as an individual,” she stressed.
