HOW TO NURTURE AND SHAPE YOUR CHILD TO BECOME TOMORROW'S GREATS


My daughter and I always have this conversation about my childhood. Each time she asks me questions about it, I would always remember how my mum would also tell me stories on how I grew up. How I first learn to talk, to sing and to walk, to play and to write. All "my firsts" as a child will always be credited to my parents who gave their all to me and molded my skills and talents.

Now that I am a mom, it's my time to support my daughter Tammy. In her younger years, I already saw her potential in singing and her hosting skills. She's 11 years old now. True enough, her teachers in school saw these skills too. Now, her teachers always ask her to be the emcee/host whenever they have  their school programs and activities.


Last November 7, I attended PROMIL® Four 's learning workshop for Parents. This is in partnership with the Philippine Center for Gifted Education (PCGE), as part of this year’s celebration of the Gifted Awareness Month with the brand’s theme of “Shaping the Gift to Build Tomorrow’s Greats.” The workshop has a series of activities to educate parents on the importance of building a strong foundation for their child's learning abilities. Expert speakers in the field of Developmental Pediatrics, Clinical Psychology, Obstetrics, Health & Wellness, Arts, and nutrition also gave meaningful insights.


Promil Four's Learning Workshop highlighted three different activities that stressed the advantage of multi-dimensional development in nurturing a child"s gift to its full potential. 


Parents were divided into 3 groups. Our group's first activity is for the social development where we have to participate in the "Giant Block Game" that focused on social capabilities for better learning. It taught us how an imaginative game can promote strong leadership qualities in children through imagination, communication, and collaboration.


The second activity was yoga class which focused on physical ability that shows the importance of growth and immunity to strengthen ones physical agility. 


Yoga promotes multi-dimensional learning as it encourages balance and coordination, focus and concentration, mind and body connection, and self-awareness and mindfulness. It taught us that Yoga can stimulate body movement and sensory experiences for children.


The Third activity is an art workshop which focused on mental ability developed to encourage recognition and memory. 


The activity helped us parents to experience how art can develop our children's memory through storytelling and painting.

Aside from these three activities that are based on three learning zones- physical, mental and socio-emotional development, this learning camp also emphasized that nutrition also plays an important role in a child's brain development. It was also stressed that with the right nutrients, it can further support a child’s advanced learning abilities.


Promil Four has been known because it is specially formulated for children above three years old and is the only brand that contains Nutritissentials — a combination of the unique and important nutrients that help support mental and physical development to help Nurture the Gift. It has been helping parents nurture the young Filipino's gift together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

This workshop helped me a lot understand more about my child and if there's one thing that has been stucked on my mind, it is the knowledge that each of our child has that talent which could possibly be a gift if only it will discovered and nurtured early on. We as parents should make sure that our children's gift should be tapped, discovered and push them to their full potential.
