    In our Facebook group, Smart Parenting Village, we decided to hold a mini-beauty pageant of our own. Many queen mothers showed up and impressed us with their wits!

    Misis Smart Parenting 2021 Q&A

    We asked moms the question: "What advice would you give to your daughter on how to deal with the pressures they face today?"

    Here's a  look at some of the most mom-azing answers:

    Full support moms FTW!

    "Just live your life to the fullest. Nanay is not pressuring you to always be on top, just give your best in everything that makes you happy as long as you don't hurt other people. Always be the kinder person." -Sarah Jane Celiz A.

    "Iba ang panahon namin noon, at iba ang panahon ninyo ngayon. Kung ano man ang maging desisyon mo, susuportahan ko. Hindi mo kailngan ma-pressure sa ibang tao kung ano man ang narating na nila. Ang mahalaga, kung paano mo haharapin ang mga pagsubok na dadating sayo. Be confident. Be yourself. Enjoy every moment of your life anak. Basta know your limits. And even if you fail, I will always got your back.” -Einna D.


    "I’m not gonna pretend I know the answer to everything. Even I struggled during my younger years. What may be applicable during my time may not be applicable today. As your mother, I’m not here to make decisions for you. Just know that whatever and however you choose to face society’s pressures, I will always back you up. When you think it’s too much to face alone, you can always count on me to face it head-on with you.” -Shiena Rose C.

    One mom had a confidently beautiful advice

    "The world may agree with you, the world may disagree with you. That’s why it’s very important that you know who you truly are, your core, your foundation, your reason for being. You are special because you are made by God, you are loved. And as long as you know and believe that, you’re good," -Honey L.

    Some channeled their inner Janina San Miguel to shut down feelings of any pressure right now

    "It will only be called 'pressure' if you let it pressure you. No matter what you face, if you face it gracefully, with integrity, and with God's guidance and wisdom, it will all just be a normal thing. So educate yourself about a lot of things, be humble, be confident, and most of all, be kind especially to yourself." -Kristine Ane M.

    "You must set yourself free from pressures that are caused by society, its expectations of you, your life, and your achievements. Focus instead on what makes you happy, fulfilled, and where your passions lie. For in that path, every day will be an adventure, free from pressures and filled with love for yourself, others, and life as a whole." -Rose Hayana V.

    "Take life one day at a time. Take each struggle one at a time. Don't be too hard on yourself and don't ever hesitate to come running to us, when you're feeling overwhelmed. It's okay to allow yourself to feel what you're feeling. Later on, you will be fine. What other people think about you does not matter, what you think about yourself does." -Ninj L.

    Some opted for short but on-point answers

    "Learn to love yourself enough to know your limits. Accept that we are all different, the things and characteristics that we can do compensate for the things and characteristics that we don't have. We are all unique." -Anewor A.

    "Do not conform with the standards of this world. You know who you are and you can conquer everything with prayers, hard work, and a smile. Take it One step at a time, YOLO wisely and trust the process." -Mary Rose Evelyn A.

    There are some tear-jerker entries too!

    "It's a big world out there but it is yours to conquer. You don't need to please every single person in your journey. But you can let them learn from it. That is the best way to let the world know the woman that you are. You don't need to carry the baggage that being a woman should be like this and like that. Trust your own timing and let God be the center of it. Everything will fall into place at the right moment. You don't need to rush yourself on things just because others have already reached their goals at a certain moment in their lives. Enjoy the journey and you will realize how beautiful it is." -Kathrina M.


    "Marahil may mga gusto ka na hindi mo agad nakakamit pero in God's time makakamit mo din. Kung para sa iba ka naman nape-pressure a big NO anak, gumawa o magdesisyon ka nang para sa iyo at kung saan ka masaya as long as wala ka namang nasasagasaan o natatapakang tao. Sa buhay may pagkabigo kang mararanasan pero hindi ibig sabihin failure ka na lagi.Ang desisyon ay sayo pero andito lang kami lagi ng Daddy mo para hingan ng payo o guidance." -Jea Z.

    And I... thank you!

    Here's a crown to all the mommies working hard to be the best role model they can be to their children. No need for a sash because in the eyes and hearts of your kids, you are their one true queen!
