Tang Philippines partnered with the pioneer motherhood community Mommy Mundo and launched an online talk that encourages moms to make the most of time at home and get to know their kids. The talk entitled: Conscious Parenting: How to Build a Stronger Relationship with your child Through Meaningful Conversations engaged parents, with over 50,000 views and 872 comments. Tang encourages moms to make the most of lunchtime at home as a moment to nourish and build stronger relationships with their kids.
The speakers included certified conscious-parenting expert Kit Malvar-Llamas, mom guest Tina De Guzman and host Cerah Co; working moms who are looking to find a balance between work and family time.
During the talk, Tina De Guzman echoed the struggle of all moms: “This pandemic has been very challenging. It feels like we’ve been on-call 24/7 during WFH. Our kids even have online classes and suddenly all moms have become homeschoolers! Unfortunately, the bonding takes a backseat because of how busy we all are.” Cerah Co shares: Lately I’ve been trying to find balance especially in being more intentional to spend time and bond with my kids”
In fact, according to an online survey conducted by Mommy Mundo and Tang Philippines with 43 working parents, 41% of parents feel guilty for not taking time during the day to have a genuine conversation with their child while only 32% report making an effort on checking up on their kids. Now ask yourself, are you using this opportunity to bond with your kids at home?
Kit Llamas adds: “Despite all these challenges, spending time with your kids needs to be intentional: That we not only teach our kids, but learn from them too through daily conversations Tanghalian is set in the middle of the day and can be a great opportunity to bond, and it is up to us parents to foster an environment during this time where they can learn how to express themselves while feeling safe and secure with us.”
