We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.

I am too protective with my kids when they are growing older and older.  They tend to explore so much that sometimes I thought they will be in danger.

But as times goes by, outdoor play and interaction with people are ways to expose themselves to learn more.

I know I got already an almost teen daughter.  Actually, she is really taller at age 12 and still I consider her a child until now.  Still, I love to learn more about parenting.

We got an intimate talk with Dr. Lilian Leynes Juadiong where I can hear again those expert insights about factors of being a mom.

I would like to verify from her that is it really normal to feel that way or I am just too paranoid. LOL! As in to confirm, I may say.

With the event was Barbie Almalbis-Honasan, singer-songwriter, wife, and mother of two growing kids – Stina, 6 and Liam, 3. “They say that having a child is like having your heart walk around outside your body. That’s exactly how I feel about my kids, and when Stina was very young, I used to always panic whenever she fell down or hurt herself, and she would always cry.

According to Dr. Juadiong, let the kids be kids.  Explore as much as they can.  If for example, they were hurt, just be with them and calmly help them out to retain the confidence within them.

During the event, we got also to saw an exclusive screening of the refreshed version of the well-loved NIDO 3+ “You’re My Number One” music video.  Barbie closely worked with fellow NIDO 3+ brand ambassador Sharon Cuneta who last revived the song back in 2009.

I love this new jingle as I revive those spirit simply of being a  “Mom” – an inspiration to always give them the best of everything.

Ever since, I am a proud supporter of Nido with all my 3 kiddos which started to recommend by their Pediatrician way, way back then. Until now, they are still drinking it. Nido got those good and high-quality sources of nourishment and nutrients that become my little helpers.

The Nido 3+ has this special ingredients such as Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®, a unique combination of live active good microorganisms that play an important role in strengthening your child’s body defenses. With this, first-time moms can have peace of mind while allowing their kids to play and be healthy without adverse effects.

Nestlé Philippines also gave a sneak-peek on the various initiatives of NIDO 3+ for this year, maximizing online platforms to reach and support first-time moms.

A unique feature on the NIDO 3+ Facebook to watch out for is the “You’re My Number One” Sing-Along Tab. With everybody’s favourite NIDO 3+ song’s fresh new beat, moms and their kids get to sing along with Barbie for fostering bonds between mother and child.

Moms can look forward to using these starting February 2014 at www.facebook.com/nidofortified.ph.

With NIDO 3+’s new campaign underway, first-time moms can let their kids be kids with their love coupled with the protection of Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®, Prebio 3, and other essential nutrients.

Despite the challenges of raising kids, the world of parenting can definitely be magical while enabling kids to be exposed, exploring and experiencing the world for them to grow into the best they can possibly be.

I definitely have one! I am a proud mother to all my children as they tend to mesmerize me as they grow.

Sharing to you pictures of Jam as how she made me smile and explore herself to the world to be always an achiever.

Ending my post with this simple poem:

Children Learn What They Live

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
