The first leg is dedicated to parents who have toddlers—children ages 2 to 4 years old. In this workshop, experts discussed 3 important and interesting topics: effective storytelling tips, feeding and nutrition, and disciplining children.
These experts include Gutch Gutierrez, who talked about the value of storytelling. Gutch is an author and illustrator of children’s books, whose most noteworthy work, Day of Darkness, won a Kid’s Choice Awards at the National Children’s Book Awards in 2014. He is also the man behind the YouTube channel StoryTellerMNL, where they read children’s books from the Philippines.
One of the country’s leading breastfeeding experts, Velvet Escario-Roxas, shared her knowledge about feeding “picky eaters.” Velvet is an international resource person who holds regular classes and seminars such as Tamang Kain: Infant and Child Feeding and Nutrition. She is also the Deputy Executive Director of Arugaan, a support system for women with infants and young children. Another speaker was Michelle Lichauco-Tambunting Ed.M, the co-founder and Directress of Young Creative Minds Preschool, who talked about disciplining toddlers, instilling values in them, and teaching them to be independent.
