1. Family Structure, Characteristic and Dynamics

The Datoon family’s patriarch is Joselito Datoon. His wife is Melody Datoon. They have two children, namely: Jonh Micheal Datoon, being the eldest and Joanna Mae Datoon being the youngest.

Tatay Joselito and Nanay Melody have been married for almost seven years. They are both 33 years old. The age of their children are the following: Jonh Micheal is 6 years old and Joanna Mae is 5 years old. All of their children are single and still studying. When it comes to decision making, Nanay Melody told me that she and her husband assess their family problems and consult each other’s opinion before making their final decision. As for their family’s relationship, I have observed that their children are very polite and sweet to their parents. I must say that this reflects the good parenting that they have been practicing in their household.

2. Socio-economic and Cultural Characteristics

For their income and expenses, Tatay Joselito works as a family driver to support their daily needs. Nanay Melody on the other hand is a housewife. Nanay Melody mentioned that their monthly budget ranges from 5,000 Php to 6,000 Php. That amount is adequate enough to meet their basic needs on food, water, and electricity. They said that what is left of their money is still enough to support their children’s financial needs. In terms of their educational attainment, Tatay Joselito is a college graduate. His wife though, is a 2nd year high school undergraduate. Their children, Jonh Micheal is at kinder garten. While Joanna Mae is not yet in school. The Datoon family are Roman-Catholic. They are not part of any community organization.

3. Home and Environment

On home and environment, the family owns the home and lot. I have observed that the space of their house is adequate enough for their family. The family does have supply of electricity, they also own appliances like, television, radio, dvd player and a fan.

I have observed that the exterior of their house is not organized. The interior is clean enough. They also don’t have any pet. The family doesn’t have a refrigerator for food and storage. What they do is, they cover up their food and drinking water. Maynilad supplies them with their drinking water. Their garbage disposal is collected. The garbage is placed outside their house. The garbage collectors comes once a week to collect their garbage. They don’t have hazardous equipment on the inside. Their drainage system, like their neighbors, is open and free-flowing. I must say that their neighborhood can be considered clean and sanitized. The area is congested, but respect is evidently shown by the neighbors due to their quiet environment. It is also evident that the environment is peaceful and orderly. The downside is that hazards like rusty makeshifts could cause accidents especially to the children who love to play during daytime. The facilities available in the neighborhood are the following: Health Centers, which they seldom use depending on the number of medical missions that they receive, the Barangay Hall, Social hall, and the nearest market and as well as a basketball court. Their means of transportation are tricycles, which they use whenever they have to go to places such as the market place, the hospital or clinic. In terms of communication, no one owns a telephone. Most of the townsfolk use cellular phones in order to communicate with other people.

Her respiratory rate, however, is normal which is 28 beats per minute and her pulse rate is 80 beats per minute.

She told me that her husband had again experienced asthma, just like what happened last Monday, due to fatigue. I have also learned that two of their children have acquired asthma. She also mentioned Joanna Mae had Diarrhea last December. Moreover, her children has acquired common diseases such as fever, cough and colds. I have also learned that the members of the family often acquire diseases. She also told me that whenever there is any health problem to any of her children, she brings them to their family doctor. On nutrition and dietary habits, they balance their food and most of the time they eat rice, fish, chicken, pork, and vegetables.

She also told me that the immunization of her children has already been completed.
