TMT Forum Addresses Parenthood for Generation XYZ

“MAY you live in interesting times” is an English translation of a supposedly Eastern phrase that is certainly a representation of the challenges for new parents in this unusual age. Overcoming such challenges with unique strategies is definitely an accomplishment, which is why The Manila Times (TMT) is hosting an online lifestyle forum titled, “Achievement unlocked: Parenting for Gen XYZ” today, Thursday. .

Covering parenting styles over three generations, the parenting forum considers 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-in-Chief Tessa Mauricio-Arriola and this writer as hosts, the digital event features 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, Managing Director of Save the Children Philippines; Dr Michèle Alignay, psychologist; and Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano, president of GV Productions Inc.

Streamed live on TMT’s 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.
