I remember I would instantly behave upon realizing my mother looking daggers at me. My boys, however, are smarter than their mom. They would avoid their mother’s fierce stare as they continue their naughty acts. But as soon as they know I mean no joke, they would come to their senses and behave. Such is the story of the lion and the boar which my 20-month-old son seemed not to appreciate that much. He didn’t giggle or smile as he used to. But still, the lesson is worth sharing.
Leading science and healthcare innovation company Merck join forces with the Department of Health (DOH), Philippine Thyroid Association (PTA), Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism (PSEDM), and the Iodine Global Network (IGN), to raise consciousness against thyroid disorders. This collaboration is time for the International Thyroid Awareness Week (ITAW) 2017.
I am one with most moms who believe that play contributes to the overall development of kids. Through play, they become more resilient, socially intelligent, confident, and physically strong. It is for this reason that I encourage my boys to play outside or with their toys. We also provide them with stuff we believe would ignite their imagination and creativity. During their growing years, I used to play with them, too. That decision aided them to develop their social skills, process their emotions, and develop a stronger bond with their parents.

As a way to demonstrate its support for playtime, Johnson’s® recently launched the Active Kids Playcation campaign. This aims to encourage parents to spend more time with their children through active playtime. They also installed an Active Kids Playcation playground at SM Southmall and soon to install in various malls. The playground seeks to again be an appropriate venue for both parents and kids to bond through play.
Have you heard of the story of the farmer and his three lazy sons? It is a nice story worth sharing to your kids, too. It would surely help you inspire your children to be diligent and consider that after hard work comes the sweet fruits of their labor.
Infection can develop in any kind of wound. Infection occurs when bacteria enters the wound through an opening in one’s skin. Though there are a number of precautions to prevent wound infection from developing, still when bacteria spreads, it may lead to a more serious disease.
This happened to my Firstborn when he was just about seven years old. He would easily get hurt, be exposed to different types of wounds, and get an infection after. I learned that it is not only prudent to wash the wound well with antibacterial soap and water. Cleaning is simply not enough. It is essential to apply a topical antibiotic at the first sign of wound infection.

The wisdom of elders
Listen to your elder’s advice. Not because they are always right, but because they have more experiences of being wrong.
I love this new story I read to my 20-month-old son. It shows the wisdom of parents which most children ignore, simply because they are kids.
I first blogged about the Mommy Republic, a mom’s happy place, 7 months ago. Since then, I regularly visit this virtual place where mommy buyers and sellers converge. Aside from discovering new product offerings and services, what inspires me to spend time there is the warm support each member of this Filipino community extends.
Recently, Edie Acedera and Kate Yu, the brains behind the Mommy Republic, surprised everyone with another venture. And just like the online marketplace the Mommy Republic, this newest undertaking again aims to tickle our interest on entrepreneurship. Also, it lets us understand the powerful new generation called the millennials.
Last Sunday, my family went out for lunch. We haven’t been to U.P. Town Center so we opted to visit the place and have our lunch there. The place was jam-packed and most diners were full. We waited for an hour to be seated and almost 30 minutes for our food to be served. That perhaps has always been the course of events come Mother’s Day.
Our moms are the most selfless, compassionate, and resilient individuals. Thus, perhaps on Mother’s Day, we really do our best to make them feel special. Nevermind the long line and wait or jam-packed malls. But more than celebrating Mother’s Day outside, another way to do that is by giving them a gift that endures – the gift of a happier life. We have here a few simple tips to make that happen not only on Mother’s Day but anytime of the year.
