|Smart Parenting Convention has about 70 plus concessionaires|
I have always looked forward to attending the Smart Parenting Convention because like most parents, I get to learn so much from it. We all know that parenting don’t come with a manual or textbook. It’s nice to know that there are events organized annually such as Smart Parenting Convention where they have guest speakers that talks about how it is to be a good parent and how to properly raise kids. It’s the most anticipated event for the year. Parenting as we all know is such a challenging job. You have to be a parent 24/7 without getting paid for it, without having day-offs and all the other perks that comes with any other kind of job. But it is something that’s definitely worth it, it’s also a very noble yet fulfilling career.

Attending Smart Parenting Convention had always been fun. Not only because of the learnings one can gain out of going there, but also because of the many perks, huge discounts on shopping and lots of freebies that comes along with it. Smart Parenting added fun and rewarding experience of parenthood as they held and hosted another Smart Parenting Convention at SM Megamall last June 29, 2019. The event was co-presented by Nido, powered by PLDT Home Fibr, with minor sponsors Jack ‘n Jill, 3M Nexcare Products and Ariel

“We always get messages from our readers that we do SP Con for two days! They always tell us they love the shopping and super appreciate the talks,” said Leah Nemil-San Jose, EIC of Smart Parenting, the most credible source of pregnancy and pregnancy information Filipino moms can rely on. I personally could relate to it as I find the SP Con a bit “bitin” especially for some of my mom friends who cannot leave the house on that specific day for various reasons.

The Smart Parenting Convention is done annually but this year they happen to have more than 70 concessionaires offering big discounts and bundles. They’ve also got games, raffle prizes and booth activities for all families to join. But what I truly loved was that they held three block topics that help parents on taking their roles: they’ve got talks preparing for the baby, recovering after the baby’s delivery, raising a toddler and so much more.
Some of the topics discussed were Childbirth Options and how to prep for delivery day (by Dr. Maynila Domingo), Postpartum Care (Dr. Sybil Bravo), Baby Milestones and Red Flags to Watch Out For (Dr. Ina Atutubo), Baby Sleep Basics (Maria Campos Lopez), The Facts and The Curious: FAQs About Parenting Toddlers Answered by Experts with Drs. Maria Josephine Yuson-Sunga, Dr. Francis Xavier Dimalanta and Teacher Tina Zamora. Early Signs of Austism Disorder were also discussed by Ms. Mona Magnu-Veluz, the National President of the Autism Society of the Philippines. Power speaker couple Joy and Edric Mendoza talked about Why You Need a Marriage Makeover After Kids. Highly-sought speaker and award-winning book author, psychologist and guidance counselor Dr. Michelle Alignay talked about Digital Parenting while Patricia Cuasay Fruto spoke about How to Create a Home First Aid Kit.
