Bonding Moment at Home with Mekeni Picnic Hotdog

  As a mother, nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our family. During the time of Enhanced Community Quarantine ( ECQ ) , aside from ensuring the safety of my family and loved ones, the entire duration of lockdown made me realize a lot of things that I should be thankful for. Before the pandemic started, we all wished for days where we can only stay at home, relax, do nothing, or have time to spend with your family. Although not in a way that we are expecting it, Covid -19  turned things 180 degrees. Everyone was advised to stay at home, and jobs were halted for more than two months and adjust to a new normal to prevent the virus from spreading.  For the entire duration of the lockdown, I was thankful enough to be with my husband and daughter, for quite some time that we were not able to have enough time to bond due to work and other errands, the quarantine has been the perfect opportunity for my husband and me to spend quality time with our daughter and for us

5 Newest Gadgets to Make Distance Learning Easier

Adjusting with the so-called "new normal" has been the trend since the pandemic started. With social distancing and quarantines implemented, one of the things that my husband and I carefully decided is if my daughter will attend her school this academic year, but with  all educational institutions agreeing to continue operating remotely and without the face-to-face aspect of traditional classrooms, we decided to still enroll her in their online classes.  With distance learning requiring a range of technology to improve the educational experience, it is important to give our kids the best tools that they can equip to help them with their online learning. On.Ward PH , the newest and most innovative retail store for top-of-the-line products for Education, Work from Home, Content Creation, Fitness and Health, Gaming, and Smart Products from well-known brands have recently released 3 latest products for a creative and easiest way of learning online.

5 Tips From Tang to Get Your Kids Ready for Distance Learning

Education is the greatest gift you can give your child. As parents, we prioritize the safety of our children above all, but at the same time, we also want to make sure that they are prepared for their future by providing them with proper education despite this pandemic. While ensuring the safety of our kids and preparing them for the new normal for learning, a lot of parents and kids are caught up in the whirlwind by trying to cope up with the distance learning and setting up all the needed apps or software to be prepared for an online class, which all of us parents can relate since we have been used to dropping our kids at school and picking them up once school ends. It somehow brought up the inner tech support within us as parents. Admit it or not we are all caught off-guard but we are trying to do our best to make it happen for our kids, and though the preparation for some parents is extended until October with some schools following the government’s recent announcement yo

Bespoke bibs for fun and colorful OOTDs for baby

Make your baby’s OOTDs fun and extra colorful with personalized baby bibs from Bibs Manila, a new online business that offers a selection of personalized bibs that are totally cute, quirky and functional.   The local brand was started by Kit and Kate Joaquin, who are also proud parents to now 6-year-old Kiel.   "Bibs Manila was born out of my love for personalized items. While I was on maternity leave six years ago, I would shop for items for my baby online. Most of the personalized bibs I found were embroidered and so delivery took a while. That sparked an idea for us," said Kate Joaquin, owner of Bibs Manila.   Bibs Manila has hundreds of fun designs that are available on their website. Browse and shop for designs from flowers and mermaids to dinosaurs and airplanes and many more! You can also create your own design aside from putting your baby's name on the bibs for a personal touch.   If you have artistic leanings, you can also opt to send in your own designs that Bib

The Childhood Immunization is Important during the pandemic

The stage of infancy to childhood is a very critical stage. Their immune system is not yet fully developed until 2-3 months. Babies produce antibodies when they are become exposed to viruses. It is important to boost the baby's immune system and to protect them from diseases, illness, and other infections by making sure that they have complete vaccination. As a parent, if asked of what makes us happy, we can simply and wholeheartedly answer that it would be our kids. We always want the best for them and see them grow healthy and away from sickness. Vaccination can protect our child from deadly diseases like Measles , Polio Hepatitis B, Tetanus, and Pneumonia which is now the number one killer disease among children age 0-5 years old. The vaccine in a child's body builds up antibodies to protect them from getting the diseases. This is also a way to reduce the spread of diseases. Parents can avail the free vaccination in all public health centers nationwide. The vaccine-preventab

Oilatum's ProtectKnowlogy Bath Time Summit

Your little one's skin is more sensitive and prone to damage, and with the changing weather, it becomes more challenging to take care of their skin as too much heat and cold weather can make your child's skin dry that can lead to skin irritation and allergies, more reason that we need to give them skin protection.

Singaporean Math teaches mental strategies to solve problems

Math, the subject that most Filipino students are having difficulty, a large percentage of which are failing this subject. I can still remember our Math teacher during my elementary and High School days, always reminding us not to make Mathematics complicated as different solutions can lead to one answer, and all you need to do is to choose the easiest one. Is it the way that the subject is being taught? Or does this only mean that our students are hopeless when it comes to this subject? If you feel the same way for your child, fear not because there are now Learning Centers that can guide your child and change their perspective towards Math. Singaporean Math is a world-renowned Mathematics Curriculum that can help in developing your child's problem-solving skills.

Rep. Rida Robes: A Dedicated Mom and Breastfeeding Advocate

Congresswoman Florida Robes Breastfeeding is essential for your child's health and wellness, not only that breastmilk has the right nutrients that your child needs for them to build their immune system, it will also help their body fight viruses and bacteria. Aside from being beneficial for your child, breastfeeding also benefits us, moms, as it reduces the risk of breast cancer and creates a deeper bond with our little one. While not all moms have the ability to breastfeed their child due to medical reasons, this brings the need for more human milk banks in the country to reach all the moms who need support in giving their babies breastmilk. In taking a step of making it possible, San Jose Del Monte Bulacan  Congresswoman Rida Robes who is also a breastfeeding supporter is planning to put up a human milk bank that will help mothers in Bulacan especially those with infants that are in emergencies that needs milk. This program will also encourage breastfeeding

That's why this year, I'm here again to support fellow mommies for breastfeeding awareness on how good and beneficial for both moms and the baby breastfeeding is.

Integrating the Whole Child Approach with K-12: Steps Towards a Future for Holistic Learning

When we talk about holistic learning, it always entails the progressive pedagogy called the Whole Child Approach (WCA). Initiated by the the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), this approach is a fresh take on what holistic education means, taking into consideration all the aspects of a young learner´s journey towards long-term development and success. With its tenets, the Whole Child Approach seeks to create challenging and sustainable learning environments for young learners, shaping them into well-rounded individuals. Recently, particularly in early-childhood education policy-making and practice, the idea that the WCA represents an incomplete methodology has proliferated. Policy-makers who are against the whole child approach often argue from a practical standpoint: they look at a child and see their education as a sort of investment. This is how they think: if the process of "investing" in a child's education takes too much resour
