Nais daw nila na sa murang edad ay matuto ito ng disiplina.
Lahad ni Vicki sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "With Scarlet, we train her to clean the dishes, pat away, set the table... kung ano lang ang puwede niyang gawin.
"Dahan-dahan, we turn her down para she knows what it's like, that people don't always say yes to her.
"People love her so much that they keep sending her gifts, saying yes to her all the time.
"But I always say, 'Hayden, for her future happiness, we have to stop her and we have to train her young.'"
Ayaw daw kasi ni Vicki matulad sa kanya si Scarlet na dahil na-spoil siya noong bata ay hindi siya marunong maghugas ng pinggan at ibang gawaing-bahay.
Aniya, "Coming from a person who was adopted, only child, given everything I wanted.
"It was very difficult for me to adjust to a life where people pala were not like that.
"They didn't spoil me. They didn't give me everything I wanted. It was doubly hard for me kasi hindi talaga ako sanay...
"I wished at that point sana maaga pa lang trinain na ako para di ako masyadong hirap ngayon."
Ipinagmalaki pa ni Vicki na umuubra naman ang turo nila ni Hayden sa anak.
"The thing with Scarlet, she's not at all materialistic. Like all her birthday gifts, di pa niya masyadong binubukas.
"Kasi it doesn't make her happy, yung mga regalo. What makes her happy is time.
"So if you're talking about languages of love, what she likes is when I have time to play with her Pokemon, or just being with her, watching TV cartoons like Pokemon.
"With Hayden ganun din, those are things that she really appreciates. She's really happy when that happens."
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph si Vicki sa mediacon ng International Women's Day Special ng Philippine Heart Association noong March 9, 2022.
HAYDEN IS THE DISCIPLINARIAN
Sino ang disciplinarian sa kanilang mag-asawa?
Sagot ni Vicki, "Mas disciplinarian si Hayden. Kasi ako kung minsan cute na cute ako sa kanya, di ko na nakikita na ano pala....
"When she was younger, we spanked her, when she was two or three.
"I know a lot of people, I think her ninang was arguing with us that we shouldn't.
"In Christianity kasi, 'spare the rod, spoil the child.'"
"It's not so much that it hurts. With kids they don't remember.
"And you have to catch them with little things pa lang. Kasi my tendency is to let it slide.
"Let's say she's not that thoughtful, she didn't pack away [her things], 'Okay lang iyan, baby pa naman.' Pero tumitigas ang puso, tumitigas ang ulo.
"With Hayden, maaga pa lang he comes in kay Scarlet.
"But now we just talk to her all the time."
