Smart Parenting Mom Workshop : All About Toddlers

Clueless At 3

Being a Mom is something that was in my cards but I didn't realize that I'd be a solo momma to an awesome three year old boy. Believe me, I have no regrets and I take parenting one step at a time each day - hoping against hope that I'll be able to pass the parenting exams with flying colors. Haha. 



Choi is now 3 and I am still clueless as to how to feed, discipline and teach him the basics. We still get those Momma and Baby running after each other when it's feeding time episodes and the "You don't love me anymore, Mama" lines when I get a teeny tiny mad at him. 



So when I heard about Smart Parenting's Mom Workshop that is focused on toddlers, I knew it was a chance for me to finally pick up bits and pieces of parenting advice that is fitting for a Mom with a 3-year old rambunctious boy. 

All About Toddlers:

Fulfilling its task to provide Filipino parents vital information about caring for and raising their child, SmartParenting.com.ph , the largest parenting news and lifestyle brand in the country, successfully held the first leg of Smart Parenting Mom Workshops on May 14 at Richmonde Hotel, Ortigas. 

"Smart Parenting Mom Workshops allow our readers to learn directly from industry experts, and it gives them a chance to ask questions, learn and interact with fellow parents," said Lei Dimarucut- Sison, Smart Parenting Managing Editor. "This is our way of helping Filipino moms and dads to be the best parents they can  be, and raise smart and loving children."



The first leg is dedicated to parents who have toddlers - children ages 2 to 4 years old. In this workshop, experts discussed three important and interesting topics :

I even won my very own Belo Baby gift pack! What a lucky day! 


Most of the sponsors centered their talks on providing beautiful and delicate skin care for babies by Ms. Kelly Misa - Mombassador of Belo Baby.

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!
