As an expecting mom or a new mom, I understand how it is to be overwhelmed with all the stuff going on. I know, because I am a new mom myself. I hear my mom and titas and lola tell me that things are now more complicated for an expecting and a new mom. During their time, they would say, there were not a lot of gadgets and products available. My lola was telling me that during the time of her mom, if her mom didn’t have enough milk, her mom would get help from a wet nurse. My mom didn’t breastfeed. I’m a formula fed baby. She tells me that breast pumps during that time were really painful and there were not available nursing covers. Also, there were no workshops to help expecting moms. She had to get a midwife to help her raise me (I’m her first born).
So, see! We are very lucky to have all the ‘support’ available. So for Manila Workshops, we created a series called Parenting Pals. Parenting Pals is geared towards creating workshops that would help both moms and dads in raising their child/children. For our first two workshops (we have two workshops this September), we have the Baby Sign Language and Safe Sleep Workshop and the How I Learn Workshop.
The first of the workshop series is quite interesting, as our partner speakers from Baby Signs Philippines and from Halo Philippines, discuss two of the most interesting parenting topics: Baby Sign Language and Safe Sleep.
The instructor for the Orientation on the Baby Signs Program will be Sharon O. Agoncillo-Galang. She is the Managing Director of Baby Signs® Philippines. She is also an Independent Certified Instructor of the Baby Signs® Program. For Safe Sleep, our speaker will be the President of Halo Philippines, Ives Lim-Esteban.
This is a FREE workshop, but we have limited number of seats. To sign up for this workshop, please fill out this form:
The other workshop is about Early Childhood Developmental Milestones and Learning Abilities.
During this workshop, you will learn about the developmental characteristics and milestones of children from birth to 6 years. Age-appropriate learning activities and play materials will also be discussed and how they are used to support your child’s interests and development. This is a great opportunity for parents to understand more about how their child is growing, and help them achieve his or her full potential along the way.
This workshop is at Php 250 per person. Please sign up now using the form below:
Both Parenting Pals workshops will exclusively be held at Babyland, 548 Facilities Center, Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City.
The How I Learn workshop is Co-presented by StemCord Philippines, Inc.
Also, we invite you to be part of our community of parents. We have a group in Facebook called Parenting Pals. Add us up here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/389968447779979/
