For Filipino moms and dads, in this day and age, do you still practice the use of "po" and "opo" and teach your kids to do the same?

Yes, I still use those words to affix to my sentences addressed to an older person especially to Ma or Pa. I'm also teaching my daughter to use those words. Everytime she forgets, I repeat her sentence and add "po" at the end. Then she'll say it correctly (politely) then. For me, since we still instill such values to our kids and a lot still practice it PLUS the media tries to showcase it may it be thru the radio, tv ads or news reporters and show hosts talking to people with authority use the words "oho" "ho" or "opo" we Filipinos would be able to preserve that part of our own culture. And I think that's something to be proud of. Something only FilipiKNOWS. Hehe ;)
