KAMI spotted a new encouraging post from celebrity mom Jennica Garcia who got lauded a lot of times for her natural parenting style and simple living.
In her 'Kalinga Ni Nanay' Instagram page, Jennica encourages her fellow moms and parents to raise their children gadget-free through revealing wonderful discoveries she noticed on her 3 1/2 years old daughter Mori.
The post shows a picture of the latter lying down on a couch while reading or should we say going through some pages of a book.
Along with it, she writes a caption which narrates an interesting story of the wonderful discoveries she witnessed on raising Mori from using gadgets to gadget-free.
She began by saying:
"I am sharing this story to encourage parents who raise gadget free children or those who try to limit the exposure of media to continue what you started."
And she continued with the amusing discoveries she noticed from her daughter.
" I am in awe of how she managed to keep herself busy with no help from me or her Tatay. In her imaginative mind, she turned a simple chair into a washing machine. A candle holder became a watering can and a picture frame became a blackboard (her fingers were her pretend chalk). She came up to me to ask if we can go. I said Tatay needs to pay first. What she did next was open her book rest comfortably on a couch. To think she cannot even read yet! For a whole hour and a half, Mori was such a joy to be with."
Jennica shares further the beautiful realization she learned on raising children gadget-free.
"Gone are the days when she'd go on a full blown tantrum because she wants to use my phone or is too bored to wait for me while I window shop. She finally understood that whining, screaming, crying will not get her what she wants. "
The celebrity mom is happy and proud to share that all their efforts paid off.
" All our efforts to make her enjoy the simple things in life, our desire for her to know how to play on her own... It paid off! "
Withal, she encourages her fellow moms and other parents as well to raise a child gadget-free, and how to do it.
"Worth it mga Inay. Kaya mo yan, be clear on what is allowed, what isn't while being calm and respectful to the child. Most important of all is modelling the right attitude. You want to refrain from using your phone also when they are awake. Read a book, do hand work, chores and they will mimic this without you asking them to do so."
At the end of her caption, Jennica gives her kudos to her eldest daughter telling her how proud she is of her and how she loves her so much.
