Life Schooling and Parenting Advice by Gladys Reyes and Thammie Sy

“The most important thing you should do is be there whenever your children need you the most,” shared Gladys Reyes on what she learned as a mom.

At the Baby & Family Expo Philippines, organized by Mediacom Solutions, Inc., MTRCB board member, celebrity, entrepreneur and hands-on mom Gladys Reyes told the expo attendees that as soon as a woman enters the phase of motherhood, she’ll learn what unconditional love truly means. Reyes, a mother of three, said that there may come a time when one will feel guilty about not being home for hours to closely monitor the kids. But she emphasized that parents need not to choose between being a career person and a parent.

The key is very simple: Give your kids the quality time they need. “It’s not about how long the hours are, it’s rather the quality you give to that allotted time,” she said.

With the advent of social networking, a parent’s attention can also be easily diverted. You may be physically present, but your attention is elsewhere, which makes it just the same when you’re not around.

Thammie Sy, a proud mom who runs a famous mommy blog, promotes home schooling and good parenting. Instead of home schooling though, she prefers to call it “life schooling” because from the moment the child is born until he grows up, it is the mom’s duty to educate him about life. She also talked about the importance of setting goals.

According to her, it is important to guide your children to the path of being good and responsible citizens. It is also crucial to ask yourself the “Why?”. Answering this will give you purpose and will give you a strong foundation to reach your goals. Sy also advised, “Instead of them entering our world, let’s enter theirs” she said. Every kid has their own personality and learning styles. So it is vital for every parent to respect their kid’s learning styles and let them grow with a strong sense of self.         

With the right knowledge and trustworthy people to back you up, parenting will be much more rewarding than what you ever imagined.

Get Cozy This Rainy Season with Mandaue Foam

Rainy days are here and with the change in season, it would be a great idea to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere for your home, especially your bedroom. A few simple changes can easily transform your room into the perfect rainy day getaway.

Nothing beats spending the cool, wet days than snuggling up in a warm, cozy bed. A simple change in beddings and pillows can do the trick. Out with the light blankets and replace this with something fluffier and warmer. Comforters or fuzzy flannel blankets are your best bet, while body pillows would also make a welcome “bed buddy”. 

Transform your bedroom into a cozy space with silk throws, shag carpets, and fluffy beddings.

Changing the color scheme of your bedroom is another way of adding warmth and comfort to your space. Go for rich, earthy shades like tan, rustic brown and terracotta, or warm colors like mocha or dusty peach and olive green. Highlight these colors with touches of accent colors like muted yellows, ochre or ecru to add a layer of brightness.  

And just because the rain is pouring doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun. Accessories will make a big difference in livening up place. A silk throw in jewel tones or a furry, shag carpet with geometric or animal print design will add a ton of personality, while lamps with printed shades with give a warm cheerful glow.

For more tips on how to transform your bedroom into a rainy day haven that is friendly on the budget, visit Mandaue Foam Furniture Store and choose from a wide selection of beds, pillows and mattresses, as well as home accessories and furniture that’s perfect for the season.
