Hi there, Sam! It's good to put some of that free time to good use! You may want them to learn a new skill.

Better yet, spend time together by teaching them how to ride a bike or how to skate. Hone their artistic skills. Teach them how to make crafts with recyclable items. Teach them how to cook! Prepare a pizza or a salad together. You may also want to teach them the value of money at an early age. Help them set up a juice stand and advice them to save their earnings for future use. Teach them how to be responsible, let them take care of a plant or a new pet. There are endless possibilities where your kids will be kept busy during the summer break, just be sure that they are safe and that they enjoy what they do.

Manuel A. Roxas is the 5th President of the Philippines, 3rd President of the Commonwealth of the Philippines (28 May 1946 - 4 July 1946) and the 1st President of the 3rd Republic (4 July 1946 - 15 April 1948) who hailed from the province of Iloilo. During his term as president, he ratified the Bell Trade Act, included the Parity Amendment in the Constitution and signed the 1947 Military Bases Agreement. It was during his term the government was damaged by graft and corruption which caused distrust from the people. Furthermore, abuse from the military and police added to the existing problems with the left-wing Huks, the members of the HukBaLaHap (Hukbo ng Bayan Laban sa Hapon). Manuel Roxas attempted to crush these Huks but only created widespread anger among the peasants.
