Mommy Bloggers Round Up: Prevention is better than Cure!
A hands on and smart mom must do everything to give to their children the best in this world. Well, that doesn’t mean that you will give them all the things that they want but rather to give them things that will help them grow and be a better person when they grow up.
I know as early as now, my son will not understand it yet, but I am hoping that he will when he is more matured.
My husband and I, as first time parents, are always on the look out for things that we can do in the present that will benefit my son in the future. We believe that prevention is better than cure, that is why we are very careful on what we do in front of our son.
We are trying not to fight in front of him so that he will respect us and not to be rebellious. I hope that he will understand the things we are doing for him when he grows up. Just like mommy Phoebe I have my share of ups and downs with my mom, and I understood parenthood more when I became one.
When I was pregnant, I was very conscious on what I ate. I didn’t drink iced tea, colas or any other food that I know which can harm my unborn child. Mommy Sam is currently pregnant with her second child, in her blog, she posted about tips on eating while pregnant. For soon to be mommies, this is a must read.
I admit, I am guilty of letting my son play with gadgets at an early age. With this modern world, I can’t resist not to give in with his request to play with his gadgets especially when I am working online. This tips of mommy Pehpot about gadgets and kids is very helpful. You can choose what day is no gadget day and I am not talking about just the kids here since most of the time they imitate what they see and that is why parents should also do the same. We tried it yesterday and guess what? we had so much fun!
Speaking of yesterday, we went to my husbands’ clan farm. I heard that the temperature will rise up to 37 degree Celsius, and since it is windy and cooler in the farm where we have a huge open space, we stayed there the whole day.
Kids went swimming in the river nearby and my in laws got some much needed sleep in the nipa hut. I was surprised that when we got home, it was raining in Manila. With this changing weather, kids will get sick easily. I am glad that mommy Nicquee posted some tips on how to prevent coughs and colds this summer.
As I have said, the kids swam yesterday at a river near the farm.
The river is colored brown because the sand underneath is colored black. It is hard to see the kids when they drown, that is why we can’t let them go to the areas that are deep since they don’t know how to swim yet. My in laws and I are thinking to enroll our kids to a swimming lesson, just what mommy Kat did when she enrolled her toddler this summer.
and as I have said, prevention is better than cure, if you think you’re kid is delayed compared to other kids his age, then you should check out my post about the importance of early intervention and how it will help your kids to cope up with his peers.

Parenting may be the most arduous job but it can be the most rewarding too of all jobs there is and i guess every woman could agree to it.
I have a 4 yrs old niece who loves to swim. We went to a resort last month and guess what she did, she run towards the adult pool which is like around 9 ft! and she doesn’t know how to swim, we were all panicky but she was not scared at all she was trying to float but of course she can’t. My brother jumped in to get her and she was laughing she enjoyed it! Just imagine if no one was looking.. tsk tsk.. we are planning to enroll her in swimming soon.
