Sulu troops told: Bombing means lax security Alexis Romero (The Philippine Star) - July 1, 2019 - 12:00am MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang yesterday called on government troops in Sulu to strengthen their security measures in the wake of explosions that left eight people dead at a military camp in Indanan town last week.

As a relatively new father, I feel I don’t have much to contribute to the conversation. I feel terribly unqualified. I lack experience. My son was only born in late 2017. I also feel I have bad paternal instincts. I don’t know how to calm my one-year old son when he is crying. I don’t know how to hold his attention during teaching moments. I don’t know how to stop him from watching too many videos. I don’t know how to get him back on healthy food after treats from well meaning loved ones. I don’t know how to get him to quiet down in Sunday Church. The little guy has me helpless. Should I be celebrated as a father this year?
