Kapamilya star Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo proves that having a hectic schedule and pursuing varied interests can’t stop her from spending time with her family as Friday nights are blocked off for family TV time.
“We bond a lot in front of the TV, especially when it’s Friday night because the kids don’t have class the next day and they don’t have tutorials. They are allowed to sleep a little bit late and enjoy what they want to watch as long as Ryan and I are with them,” the newest SKYdirect ambassador explained.
As a mom, Judy Ann believes that watching television together plays an important role in building stronger family relationships. She even reveals that she and Ryan try to answer their children’s questions honestly and accurately whenever they watch TV.
“The kids are very open to us when it comes to asking questions when we watch TV. When they see something that they don’t understand, they ask questions and we, as parents have to answer them honestly and accurately. We love that they ask us questions because the children are honest and open and we discover their interests, so it helps us determine what programs to encourage them to watch,” Judy Ann added.
Among the TV shows that she encourages her children to watch are Tagalog shows, especially educational shows like ‘Matanglawin’ so her kids can learn how to speak Tagalog fluently.
‘Matanglawin’ airs on ABS-CBN HD on SKYdirect, the direct-to-home pay TV service of SKY Cable, the cable and broadband unit of ABS-CBN that provides a diverse channel lineup with programs that appeal to every family member.
News and sports, lifestyle, cartoons, and even movies are some of the content that SKYdirect’s channels feature, which enhances home life by providing the whole family opportunities to bond while watching their favorite shows together, or by allowing individual members to enjoy their chosen programs.
