Philam Life: The ABCs of Parenting School Tour

One of the measures of parenting success is the achievements of the children upon entering adulthood. Raising a child is a very challenging role but seeing them grow into a good and responsible individuals makes parenting very rewarding.

“Raising a family is not as easy as ABC, especially at the child’s formative years from ages 1 to 12. You have to focus on forming your child’s character while balancing work and family life,” said parenting and relationship consultant Maribel Dionisio.

Another challenge to address is starting a family. Most couples may feel confident that they are emotionally and mentally prepared for family life, but many would be doubtful about their financial capability to do so.

“A well-planned financial goal is also crucial in the early stages of starting a family,” said Dionisio. “For parents, especially those who are planning to have 2 or more kids, it is important that they start planning for their kids’ college education as early as when their child starts to walk,” Dionisio continues.

6th Annual Philippine Homeschool Conference Expo

My sons are not homeschooled, they go to regular/traditional schools with yearly tuition fee hikes. I know of some parents who homeschool their children and I wondered why. For some time I’ve been curious as to what benefits do they get and the effects on their children. I asked around, observed, did some research. Came to a point where I wanted to pull-out my youngest in his current grade school because of several reasons. I think it’s not bad at all, you know, to homeschool the kids, especially if you are financially burdened with all the monthly expenses. But then, it’s not an easy escape plan from all the financial stress. The education of your kids is one of the most important thing in their lives. Jeopardize it and their future will be broken.

We always hear our elders say that the next generation is the future of our country. I agree, that’s why my husband and I are doing everything we can to plan and save for our children’s education and future. Kudos to companies and organizations too, such as Philam Life and World Vision for helping indigent families to have bright future ahead.

Top Philam Life Leaders Join AIA Premier Leader’s Summit 2016 in Bangkok

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way,” said leadership expert John C. Maxwell. This is how true leadership is passed on in institutions that have been in operation for decades. In the case of financial advisors, nothing portrays a sense of leadership more than the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT).

Given that MDRT membership is now recognized internationally as the standard of excellence in the life insurance and financial services business, the AIA Group made it a central theme in their recently concluded Premier Leader’s Summit. The annual event held in Bangkok, Thailand was entitled “Sustaining Success: Building an MDRT Culture,” and gathered the best agency leaders of AIA from all over Asia.
