December 2017 Updates

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've updated this site! I moved to Madagascar almost 2 years ago, and have been working full time at the American school. My kids are now 8 and turning 7! I cannot believe how fast time flies. We certainly have different challenges and successes at this age, and maybe I'll write up another parenting book about raising 6-10 year olds?!? Who knows! 

I wanted to let you know what I have been up to. When I first moved to Madagascar, I had time to put together a couple of sessions of the Yaya training. My Malagasy housekeeper Sylvia and her daughter Gabriella were kind enough to translate the book in Malagasy for me, as well as translate during the Yaya sessions. It was a lot of fun! I definitely saw a lot of similarities in the Malagasy and Filipino culture. Here are some photos of the events :

The Super Yaya Manual still continues to help Yayas all over the world. Recently, a Mommy blogger from Singapore wrote a review :
