What would a parent of a 7-year-old budding artist do? Support him and be proud of his work, like Jovy and Georginna are doing for their son Sebby.

[Editor’s Note: For parents who are Rappler readers: We know that since most of us work until Saturday, family day is almost always on Sunday.

I personally see the most number of families eating together, watching movies together and hanging out in cafes together on Sundays.

We’d like Rappler to be one of those places where you “hang out” too. Tweet us your photos @rapplerdotcom with hashtag #FamilySunday; tell us what you are doing with your family.

Our children are also in social media. Last week, my son wrote 5 not-so-scary movies for kids in time for Halloween. This week, he wrote Why I love The Beatles in celebration of Love Me Do’s 50th anniversary.

What is your kid into? What is he or she doing? Tell us about him/her and what he/she is passionate about.

Let us share stories with other parents, and build a community of parents with kids in social media. 

Send us your child’s artwork, poetry, short story or even YouTube video to with subject heading RAPPLER KIDS. Thank you!]

MANILA, Philippines – Sebastian Enrique Jarantilla Desuasido was born on March 24, 2004 to parents John Vincent and Georginna.

He started painting when he was 7 years old in summer class and has been hooked ever since. 

Today, every Saturday, Sebby goes to art class at Art Smart under art teacher Aubrey Decloedt. (“He doesn’t like missing any of the sessions,” says mom Georginna.)

Sebby’s dream? To have an exhibit “someday soon.” He is in Grade 2-Apo at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Here are some of Sebby’s artwork:
