Choosing the right activity for your kids is one tough job of a mother like Melissa Ricks.
But, she did not think twice in choosing taekwondo as a great activity for her three-year-old Kiera.
KAMI learned that Melissa simply supports her daughter who is on the stage of learning and absorbing a lot of knowledge.
"I just really want her to learn as much as she can, and you're never too young naman to start anything.
"Trying nang trying until we find something she really likes," said Melissa in her interview with Pep.
But Melissa let Kiera try other activities first before she ended up enrolling her in a Taekwondo class.
It it not just for 'self-defense'.Taekwondo teaches Kiera a lot of things such as discipline, agility, and confidence.
Just like other kids, at first, she was shy and just sat at the corner. But since she is with her fellow toddlers, she immediately had fun during warm up exercises.
"At first she was shy and sat in a corner, but after a while she warmed up and started joining the exercises.
"I think the best part is when she comes home and tells me all about it.
"Sabi ko, 'Did u have fun?' She said, 'Yes, like Mulan!'" shared the proud Mommy Melissa.
On her instagram post, Melissa captured one of Kiera's taekwondo classes.
She captioned her post, "So @kierakelly12 tried Taekwando for kids at @hillslearningzone and she loves it! I was surprised!"
"She came home telling me 'mommy I was shy at first, but now no more!' and started showing me what she learned, she said "hiiiiiyaaa yaaa yaaaa" with matching punches and kicks..."
Aside from Taekwondo, Melissa also enrolled Keira in an Instant Reading class.
She was so proud of Keira for she was able to sound out letters on the first day of the class.
"This amazes me, I didnt know that kid this young would catch on so quickly!" she said.
Melissa is a product of the reality search Star Circle Quest along with Roxanne Guinoo, Joross Gamboa, Hero Angeles and Sandara Park.
Recently, she posted a throwback photo of them on her instagram.
