Toddler Care, Basic First Aid, Dental Care Workshop + Giveaway

Looking back, I missed those days when baby was still a newborn, always cuddled in my arms breastfeeding round the clock. Without noticing it, a year had already passed by and my baby has now transitioned from infancy to toddlerhood stage. Being a proactive mom, it is my duty to keep abreast of my child's growth and check on her milestones. Since then, I have attended quite a number of workshops already and still constantly on the look-out for more knowledge. Thankfully Manila Workshops has designed a series of workshops called First Time Parents where essential topics on parenting are being discussed.

This coming March 22, the title of the workshop is Toddler Care, Basic First Aid and Dental Care. It aims to give first time parents of toddlers the skills and knowledge they need to keep up with their kids as they reach further milestones in life. Parents, guardians and yayas are all encouraged to attend in order to help them understand how a toddler behaves along with basic first aid and also learn about their child's oral hygiene. 

Topics would include:
1. Understanding Toddlers
2. Playing and Learning
3. Basic First Aid
4. Dental Care
