Help Your Child’s Future With Parentology
Today’s world is vastly different from what it was just a decade ago, causing anxiety among parents trying hard to provide their children future full of possibilities. Technology, environmental changes, and lifestyle shifts have redefined the way people do and view things, so much so that today’s parent sometimes feel overwhelmed by the world their children are growing in.
Unlike a generation ago when school children often ate home-cooked meals and played games with neighbors, today’s children often consume fast food items while playing video games on the handhelds. Parks and outdoor spaces have been replaced by sprawling malls, while the ever increasing population has meant traffic congestion, pollution, and other urban challenges that did not exist or were not as bad ten years ago. As a result, many children have become couch potatoes with limited socialization opportunities. A number of growing kids struggle with issues such as obesity, socialization difficulties, attention problems and the like.
Worse, there are factors that parents feel they could not do much about such as family health history to nae a few, which could potentially influence their children’s future.
To guide parents in reshaping the future of their children, Nestle Nandkid is partnering with them in advancing Parentology+, an advocacy to help parents take charge of their future with simple steps that can taken right at home. These day-to-day measures cover the different phase of life, such as diet and nutrition, exercise and activity, socialization and creativity.
To launch Parentology+, Nestle Nandkid will be holding series of events to bring the advocacy closer to parents across the country. The events will feature bloggers who are also parents, and who can share their experience about different aspects of their parenting journey. Blogger Stephanie Zaburi-Crespi and Nestle Nutritionist Ms. Aleli Magtibay will give insights on nutrition and diet. Football player Anton Del Rosario will share how he got his son to embrace an active lifestyle and love sports. Entrepreneur and stylist Cat Arambulo-Antonio will speak on how she helped her children learn to socialize with their peers and tidbits on how to stimulate their creativity and confidence.
Parentology+ recreates a typical home and its rooms. The space will consist of three stations touching on three important topics: Food, Physical Activity and Socialization – fill your day with ways you can stay lean at the Foodie station and make sure to get that drool-worthy photo, jump into a ball bit at the Play station and play on a giant piano at the Social station, and so much more! Each station will be decked out to be instagram-worthy for those who wants to share their family bonding moments on social media so make sure to check it out.
To up the ante, a special keepsakes and lots of freebies will be given to the participants and for added excitement, Nestle Nankid will be giving away Intax SQ10 cameras to two lucky attendees in each run!
Parentology+ kicks off starting February 3 to 4 at the Activity Center in Trinoma Mall, which starts the Metro Manila run. To reach more parents, it will be followed by events in:
- Sm City Clark on February 10-11
- Abreeza Davao on March 3-4
- Sm City Cebu on March 17-18
