And yes, there are smart parenting talks/workshops where I'd find myself crying or teary-eyed within a few minutes because they usually say something profound that I've never thought of before and it touches that sensitive nurturing mother's heart of mine.
As parents, we all want to do the best for our kids, right? We want to be good parents, and we especially don't want to put more as*h*les into the world. I swear by the expertly advice and wisdom of Smart Parenting experts because they can help us do things the best way possible.

Parenting advice may be available on the internet already with just one flick of a finger. But it is through Smart Parenting workshops where as parents, we get the chance to ask questions and get credible answers right away. "We decided to 'supersize 'our baby showers and workshops into Smart Parenting Convention. We invited experts to hold talks for every stage of the parenting journey--from pregnancy, baby care, to family life--all in one venue,"said Leah Nemil-San Jose, Editor in Chief, Smart parenting.
