Smart Parenting Mom Workshops 2: All about School-Aged Kids

Every parent want what's best for their kids. From newborn to practically the whole years of their kids' lives. And it is important that parents should be equipped with the proper knowledge to help them decide better on how they should raise their family.

One of those important tools that parents like me should attain is the knowledge on how our children learn best and how we can nurture their talents. This and more were the themes of the second leg of the Smart Parenting Mom Workshops held last August 13, 2016 at Discovery Suites in Ortigas.

Two of the most challenging tasks of a parent are bringing out the child’s artistic skills and home-schooling.”

Mom of two and education consultant for teens Chary Mercado spoke from her own personal experience when it came to developing a child’s creative side. Former art director of Smart Parenting magazine and contributing crafter and stylist for the website, Jen Inumerable-Suarez, showed how art projects for preschoolers didn’t require a mom to be a DIY expert. Calligraphy artist and a homeschooler herself, Milona Barraca shared tips on how to know if homeschooling is a best option for a child.
