It has been three months since our Quaker Supermoms signed on and accepted the challenge they’ve set for themselves and their families. With all the hard work they’re going to face, they rely on the power of oats to provide them with the energy they need to keep on going.
Log on to www.quakeroats.ph to see what they’re doing—and how close they are—in achieving their goals!
Jaymie and her kids take running training seriously. In fact, they have been training nonstop for the past weeks. Although her kids find running enjoyable, Jaymie wants them to explore other sports. When the Bull Runner mom accidentally scheduled swimming lessons on what her daughter Nia labeled as “Freedom Friday” (the kids’ rest day), the little girl was over the moon with happiness. Jaymie said, “Nia was floating, kicking, and swimming all over the place. I couldn’t help but smile because I knew she was enjoying every minute.” Her son Anton, on the other hand, made a relatively smooth transition from learning how to ride a mountain bike. Jaymie took him to Filinvest City, the same track used for Ironkids, for more biking training.
QUAKER GOAL: To swim, bike, and run more with my kids and train as a family
Janice is a busy mom who loves preparing yummy and healthy breakfasts for her kids. Despite her full schedule, Janice still finds time to teach her children, especially her youngest Reese, about the power of words. She tells her kids to always think first before saying something, as words can have a tremendous effect on people: Positive words can encourage, uplift and move someone, while negative ones can deeply hurt and scar a person’s self-esteem for life—and you can never take bad words back. “It is also important to always be authentic,” she said. “Remember that what you say has to also reflect what you do. Always mean what you say.”
QUAKER GOAL: To help my kids live more active and involved lives, while affecting others positively
Kris wants to focus on the emotional well-being of the family this month. For starters, she makes it a point to always be present during special family occasions and to express her love for family through actions and not just words. Kris also wants her daughters to build their self-esteem rather than focusing on physical things such as matching their outfits. “I have to accept that they are unique and different from me,” she shared. Kris also shared more life-lessons she’s learned from her life coach, who helps her in keeping her OC parenting in check.
