Sarah Geronimo on judging/mentoring kids in The Voice Philippines' Kids Edition: "Mahirap po kasing balansihin kasi when you're being too honest naman or too frank, masyado lang nila ite-take yun negatively. Or sasabihin nila itong si Sarah, masyadong mapagmarunong. Kapag nandun ka naman sa laging nagpe-praise, o kung lagi mong binabanggit ang positive sa performance, masyado ka namang mabait. Dapat talaga nasa gitna ka lang. Balanse lang, nagbibigay ka ng positive, nagbibigay ka ng negative."

"May kids po muna then after nun, Season 2 na."

Will she do any changes to her coaching style this time around?

"Mahirap po kasing balansihin kasi when you're being too honest naman or too frank, masyado lang nila ite-take yun negatively.

"Or sasabihin nila itong si Sarah, masyadong mapagmarunong.

"Kapag nandun ka naman sa laging nagpe-praise, o kung lagi mong binabanggit ang positive sa performance, masyado ka namang mabait.

"Dapat talaga nasa gitna ka lang. Balanse lang, nagbibigay ka ng positive, nagbibigay ka ng negative.

"Mahirap kasi katabi mo ang mga mentors, lalo na towards the end of the season.

"Ayaw mo rin naman idiskaril ang kanilang mga diskarte or ayaw mong ma-offend sila."
