SYMPOSIUM A:

MINDFUL PARENTING
by Maria Teresa F. Aguilar, Marie Tessibeth Cordova, and Ma. Blesila de Asis

Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present . It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

To parent is the most vital skill a nation needs to be able to build. Every parent is a like a vessel that can nurture and enrich. As parents we can choose to water seeds of love, joy and peace in us so that once strengthened, these will be the seeds that we will be watering in our children. We have within our power to cultivate the seeds that we want manifested is us and in our children

Parenting then is understanding our inner selves drawing on what is deep and best in us. As we learn to trust our deepest nature as parents we then learn to become effectively present in our children.

The workshop aims to enable parents to use mindfulness as a skill that they can use to nurture themselves and their families.It can be a way of life that can nourish and sustain them.

PARENTING IN THE DIGITAL AGE
By: Queena Lee-Chua and Scott Chua

How does indiscriminate immersion in digital technologies affect the way our youth think, behave, and learn today? A pioneering study of Filipino high school students reveals findings regarding attention, socialization, learning, even possible addiction. Implications for parenting and learning will be discussed, together with insights from a student well-versed in digital technologies.

PARENTING CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS: FINDING EVERYDAY OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW
by Joanna Herrera , Fiona Sandoval, Rica Bolipata-Santos, Criselda Yambao

“A child with special needs is more like other children than unlike them because all children share the same basic needs: acceptance, care, challenges, love, and support.” (Children’s Home Society of California)
Children with special needs typically receive multiple services to address various developmental issues. While professional interventions are essential to your child’s success, there are many opportunities for parents and caregivers to “intervene” and facilitate their child’s optimal development. This workshop aims to help parents become more informed about what they can do to nurture core developmental capacities, such as self-regulation, communication, and socialization through day-to-day interactions and routines. We will focus on how a nurturing caregiving environment and developmentally rich interactions form the foundation of effective intervention. We will cover basic principles and strategies in play-based socio-emotional learning, emotional regulation, and Social Thinking to equip parents with everyday tools that they can use to enhance developmental capacities of children with special needs.

SYMPOSIUM B:

RAISING CHILDREN WITH HIGH FQ (FINANCIAL QUOTIENT)
By: Rose Fres Fausto

We all want our children to succeed. Sometimes we even interfere in their choice of course and career because we want to make sure that they would be okay financially. But the reality is, we will never know what career will be lucrative and still meaningful to them when they enter the workforce.

FQ Mom Rose Fres Fausto encourages you to raise your children with high FQ so that when the time comes, you can sit back, relax and allow them to follow their passion because with high FQ, you already armed them with Economic Self- Defense.
Learn how your children can be millionaires even before they graduate from college!

CONNECTING WITH YOUR TEENAGER
By Rachel Ann Parr, Maria Belinda Morales, and Chris Carandang

Adolescence can be a turbulent time that not only affects the adolescent but also the whole family. Aside from the physical and biological changes that the adolescent experiences, it is usually during this stage that adolescents start feeling the need to assert their independence from their family. If this is misunderstood by parents, it can cause arguments that can lead to painful words being said and hurt that may be difficult to mend. At the same time, it is also when their children are in their adolescent stage that parents also go through personal changes of their own because they are usually in the middle adulthood stage, which can be as turbulent as the adolescent stage.

This symposium hopes to provide a venue to help improve parents’ relationships with their adolescent children. It is also an opportunity for parents to ask questions and share their own experiences. This symposium is also open to professionals – doctors, psychologists, counselors, social workers – who interact with adolescents.

LETTING GO: HOW PARENTS PLAY
by Marisa Marin, Olive Carandang, and Jaymee Leonen

This talk highlights the importance of leisure and play in enhancing parents’ sense of wellbeing. In particular, it examines the role of mindfulness as well as the expressive arts, i.e., music and movement, in providing relief from stress, in offering revitalization and rekindling one’s deep connection to activities that are personally meaningful to the participants. Activities on the three M’s— mindfulness, music and movement, will also be given to allow a more interactive, experiential session among the participants.

In a context where the norm is to be constantly busy and pressed for time, this talk emphasizes the significance of adult playfulness. It addresses a question that is often overlooked: How do I, as a parent, continue to play?

Notes:

Lunch is not included, only snacks.

6.5 CPE points will be given to participants.
