2. Safety gates play a big role
According to the very first study to compare safety behavior and safety equipment between families, some falls may be prevented by using safety gates across doorways and on stairs for kids up to age two.

3. Dads play a huge role in breastfeeding
A new study showed that when dads were involved in a breastfeeding support program in the hospital, new moms were more likely to continue breastfeeding for more than three months. It’s a big help for moms if dads assist with learning how breastfeeding works, positioning the baby at breast, and monitoring if the baby is getting enough milk. Yes, we cannot emphasize it more: Fathers play a big role in ensuring mothers get the help and support they need while breastfeeding. (huffingtonpost.com)
4. Scholarships to poor but deserving students
President Aquino has signed a law that mandates all state universities and colleges to provide automatic admission and scholarship grants to the top 10 public high school students. Even if the University of the Philippines is excluded from the new Iskolar ng Bayan Act, this is still a big win for those who deserve to pursue a college education even if they have no money to fund their education.

5. Philippines “less corrupt”
According to Transparency International, the Philippines is now 85th out of 175 countries in the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) this year, with a score of 38 on a scale of 1 to 100, where 0 corresponds to being highly corrupt. Compared to 2012 when we scored 34 and ranked 105th, this is quite an improvement. Let’s hope that this will be a start. (inquirer.net)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
