It's a common misconception that parents should never make any mistake when it comes to raising their children and taking care of their family. But admittedly, no parent is perfect – mistakes are always bound to happen.
At the first leg of the Smart Parenting Mom Workshops, held at the Richmond Hotel in Ortigas, parents with toddlers listened to important and relevant topics that address common parenting concerns and mistakes – like disciplining kids, feeding and nutrition. GSK Brand Marketing Associate for Calpol, Sinecod and Voltaren Jhett Chantl Yu shared insights about their new campaign "Calpol Make No Mistake," where they conducted a survey to parents and healthcare experts on the challenges that parents face.
Guests like Velvet Escario-Roxas, breastfeeding expert and international resource person, shared her secrets to getting picky eaters to eat anything. Michelle Lichauco-Tambunting Ed.M, the co-founder and Directress of Young Creative Minds Preschool, talked about disciplining toddlers, instilling values in them and teaching them to be independent. Parents were also treated to storytelling tips by National Children's Book Awards winner and master storyteller, Gutch Guttierez.
Smart Parenting also teamed up with major sponsors like Calpol, Insular Life and Belo Baby who prepared talks to address parents' concerns about health, money and skin.
When it comes to parenting, every experience is unique. Mommies who joined the workshop found that making mistakes is okay and every parent encounters all sorts of struggles. That's why Smart Parenting partners with experts like Calpol and Scott's to make sure they provide parents with helpful guidelines and tips that will prevent baby health-related booboos.
After the talks, all participants were treated with a delicious buffet, several exciting raffle prizes and gifts from Smart Parenting, minor sponsor Scott's and partner concessionaires Baby Mama, Fatty Brainy Toys, Giant Carrier, Home Suites, Mr. and Mrs. Green PH, Potty N Tubby, Sweet Creations by MUMS, The Eco Bag Boutique and Tiny Buds.
