“MAY you live in interesting times,” is an English translation of an allegedly oriental expression that is certainly a representation of challenges for new parents in this unusual era. Surmounting such challenges with unique strategies is definitely an accomplishment, which is why The Manila Times (TMT) holds an online lifestyle forum, titled “Achievement unlocked: Parenting for Gen XYZ,” today, Thursday.
Covering rearing styles across three generations, the parenting forum takes into account modern practices and beliefs in the Philippines and around the world, including the dichotomous factors of emotional warmth versus hostility, autonomy versus control and structure versus chaos.
With TMT Entertainment and Lifestyle editor Tessa Mauricio-Arriola and this writer as hosts, the digital event presents parenting tips and techniques from Dr. Randy Misael Sebastian Dellosa, founder and chief psychiatrist of the Randy Dellosa Wellness Center; Wilma Banaga, representing Atty. Alberto Jesus Muyot, chief executive officer of Save the Children Philippines; Dr. Michele Alignay, psychologist; and Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano, president of GV Productions Inc.
Livestreamed on the TMT Facebook page, YouTube channel and Dailymotion account, “Achievement unlocked: Parenting for Gen XYZ” is made possible with the help of special partners Baker J, Beko, F1 Hotel, FuentesManila, Greenbulb Communications and Redtorch Communications.
Organization partners are The British Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Philippines, the Davao Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Financial Executives Institute of the Philippines, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, the Management Association of the Philippines, the Nordic Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, the Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy and She Talks Peace. And of course, the media partner is The Manila Times TV.
