As early as now, Dennis Trillo makes sure to teach his son Calix practical values: "Yung kahalagaan ng mga wants saka ng needs, ine-explain ko sa kanya yun."


Dennis Trillo can hardly believe his son Calix is now 11 years old.

"Ang bilis ng panahon. Ang laki na. Magti-teenager na siya," the celebrity dad told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the One Great Love press conference back in December 2018. 

"Medyo naisip ko na medyo tumatanda na ako kasi tumatanda na rin yung anak ko, pero masaya... Nararamdaman ko parang baby pa rin siya kahit double digit na yung age niya."

Has Calix already experienced his share of first crushes?

Dennis revealed, "Wala pa nga, e. Masyado kasi siya ma-ano, e, mahiyain din kasi siya sa mga babae.

"Marami siyang mga friends na boys, saka feeling ko medyo late bloomer siya pagdating dun.

"Or siguro yung generation na dahil masyado silang focused sa—ewan ko, ah? Siguro masyado lang siya naka-focus sa mga games saka sa ano-ano, kaya in terms of the opposite sex, hindi pa niya na-e-explore yung venue na yun."

But when that happens, Dennis said he's going to be a cool dad.

The GMA-7 actor continued, "Nilu-look forward ko yung day na yun... Kapag nag-open up na siya na meron na siyang crush o naghihingi na siya ng advice na hindi ko naman alam kung anong mabibigay kong advice!"

But Dennis added that there was no pressure for his son to befriend girls at his age.

He said, "Gusto ko i-enjoy niya din muna yung mga gusto niya muna gawin."

IMPARTING PRACTICAL VALUES

Calix is already in sixth grade and, as early as now, Dennis makes sure he is growing up with a more pragmatic approach to life.

He said, "Lagi ko tinuturo sa kanya yung importansiya ng pagiging praktikal sa buhay. Yung kahalagahan ng mga wants saka ng needs, ine-explain ko sa kanya yun.

"Siyempre, pagka bata ka, marami kang gusto, 'tapos hindi nare-realize na yung iba dun hindi mo pala gusto. Yun siguro yung isa sa mga bagay na na-impart ko sa kanya.

"As early as now, natuturo ko na sa kanya yung mga values na kailangan niya malaman."

Calix is Dennis's son with ex-girlfriend Carlene Aguilar.
