    Raising an unplugged kid in this tech-savvy generation.

    Not too long ago, children used to play outside all day, playing sports, riding bikes and engaging in creative play that didn’t require expensive gadgets or parental supervision.

Today, it’s not uncommon to see toddlers and preschoolers carrying around an iPad or any gadgets.  So choosing to raise an unplugged kid in this tech savvy generation is not really that easy but it’s so worth it. Screens put everything on the table so that there is nothing to uncover. But when we get out of our children’s way and let them be bored they come up with all sorts of exciting things…

They sent me two kinds of bra, nursing bra and scoop neck which are the bestsellers for me to try. 5 factors I consider when…

But before getting into the review let me share to all of you my interview with Mr. Edrianne Dela Cruz, the owner of TakoMagi. Why did you decided to pursue a career in the restaurant business?

  • Breastfeeding In Style with Little Roo
