Parents take on the most relentless and challenging work every single day. That’s why Smart Parenting makes it a daily mission to become a mom (or dad’s) guilt-free guide to their greatest (and wildest) adventure that is parenting.
One of the ways we accomplish that mission is through our annual Smart Parenting Convention, which is the “supersized” version of our baby showers and mom workshops. This year, the convention was held at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3 last June 29, 2019. The event was co-presented by Nido, powered by PLDT Home Fibr, with minor sponsors Jack ‘n Jill and 3M Nexcare Products.
It was our biggest event yet with more than 70 concessionaires offering special discounts and bundles on pregnancy, baby, and toddler essentials. Aside from games, raffle prizes, and booth activities, three blocks were divided into topics to help parents in taking on their role, whether they are preparing for a baby, recovering from delivery, raising a toddler, and many more.
