The Gift of Kindness


It is common knowledge that doing kind things makes one feel better and gives meaning to our lives, but scientific studies show that it has other effects that can be observed. Doing good has shown to help counter negative feelings such as anxiety and depression that may undermine the health and well-being of people in all walks of life. In a world that is plagued with stressors that impact many of society's sectors such as economy and education, the need to be that force of good - a spark of light in the darkness - has never been greater.

Small Actions, Big Impact


Developing micro-habits start in being conscious about how you behave around your kids. When you practice a behavior that you want your children to adapt repeatedly, it becomes a habit. But, you shouldn't stop there. You need to be able to keep the habit up long enough for it to become a pattern. In doing so, it becomes an integral part of your parenting style, which makes it almost impossible to be broken.

Stop, Listen, and Empathize


While we continue to see progress in the fight against the global pandemic, reports about the rise of new variants are beginning to make people feel uneasy once again. This can give rise to a new wave of anxiety, stress, and feelings of uncertainty that may not be sensed at first glance, but can be visible to those who have a strong connection towards the person who is burdened with these emotions. With some areas enforcing lockdown mandates, providing emotional support becomes crucial in preserving one's well-being. For families, positive parenting through listening and empathy can be a great solution to combat negativity.

Growing Up Gritty


In the context of behavior, "grit" is defined as "firmness of character; indomitable spirit." Researcher Angela Duckworth pushed this further to include "perseverance and passion for long-term goals." It may only be a four-letter word, but grit is definitely a meaningful quality that people have to imbibe, especially during challenging times where many would opt to give up or choose easier paths, abandoning dreams and ambitions.

Striving for Parental Efficacy


As a parent, you don’t have to be perfect, but you have to be effective. You have to be open to all sorts of possibilities and scenarios as you take on the challenge of raising kids, and each experience will put your parenting skills to the test. The first step in becoming an effective parent is acknowledging the fact that what might work in one situation won’t necessarily solve another problem. Some may say that having “parenting instincts” is innate, but it is not advisable to rely only on hunches especially where your kids are concerned.

Making Sense of Maturity


Many parents wish that time will stop and they can keep their little ones as they are. However, days continue to turn to months, and months to years, with the once little angels growing into highly curious adolescents. Puberty is a monumental time for children, a period where they undergo physical, mental, and emotional transformations in their journey to becoming full-fledged adults. Before they reach the finish line, though, kids would need a whole lot of reassurance and support from their moms and dads.

Family Media Use Plan


Technology has been lauded for making life more convenient, but as it is with everything, it has its own downsides. A study from Pew Research Center reveals that two-thirds of parents in the US feel that parenting is more challenging in recent times than it was two decades ago. Social media and smartphones may be seen as tools that bridge communication gaps, but parents are getting more anxious that these are causing children to be more "detached." Kids spend too much time in front of screens watching videos, playing games, or interacting with others online that they forget to nurture their relationships at home.
