Failure is life’s greatest teacher, but only a few parents want their children to experience its pains.

Massive technological changes and constant disruptions have made the world much more complex, but these have also created ample opportunities for learning and growth. Amid uncertainties and continuous change, parents have to ensure that their children learn and grow from the challenges that they will inevitably encounter in their growing-up years.

Recognizing that parents need support in reshaping the future of their children, Nestlé Nankid utilized expertise with advocacy to help reshape the future for the next generation through “Parentology+: The Reshape Forum.”

The forum held recently aimed to help parents better understand their role in reshaping the future of their children. 

Well-known parenting experts from the international and local scenes participated in the event. Among them were Melissa Benaroya, LICSW, a renowned parent, coach, and speaker from Costa Rica who extensively studied the Growth Mindset movement; Didi Manahan, MSEd, a progressive learning advocate and co-founder of Keys School Manila; and Dr. Josephine Sunga, MD, FPPS, MSc, pediatrician and epidemiologist who, through her research, champions nutrition as a key ingredient toward children’s optimal development.

Parents and guests were also able to participate in activities that allowed them to learn practical tips and lessons on how they can nurture an optimal growth mindset within themselves and their families.

“Reshaping Your Language” allowed participants to learn that adults have the power over how their language can affect kids. Phrasing statements to curiosity questions can help the kids get a feeling of being included in the decision-making. 

In “As Easy As Riding A Bike,” guests were asked to reminisce their first time riding a bike and its process, which was then compared to parenting—the joy of seeing others’ kids, the challenge once an individual had their own child, the constant toil of new developments, and the parental instinct.

The vital role of nutrition in the development of children was also discussed. Without providing proper action, a child’s diet may greatly affect his or her overall growth. 

“Nestlé understands that children and their parents face a complex reality, which is why parents should have the tools that will help them pave the way toward their children’s optimal growth and development,” said Jean Espino, vice president for marketing at Nestlé Premium Milks.
