PLDT HOME Mommy’s Day Out

"With great power comes great responsibility." -Spiderman

I can’t stress this quotation enough. Technology has become so powerful these days that internet is now considered a basic necessity.  I, myself, am a fan of this modern world but I also can't help but notice the bad things that come along with it. People have been abusing this power and I don't want my kids to do the same. I want them to be responsible in everything they do which is why it is a top priority of mine to educate them on how to properly handle things. Even with my busy schedule as a mother and a blogger, I will never neglect my kids' needs. I want to monitor each and every one of their activities, may it be physical or cyber activities. Although, juggling one role to another is not a walk in the park, I will try my hardest to always be there to guide them.
Last November 9, I attended an event organized by PLDT Home called Mommy’s Day Out. It was held at Stacy’s BGC and highlighted parenting in the digital age. Celebrity moms Isabel Oli-Prats and Denise Laurel hosted the event where we shared our own mommy tips, routines, stories, and questions in light of technology. I got a lot of useful tips and techniques on how to approach my kids regarding their gadget usage.

Celebrity moms Camille Prats and Issa Litton were also at the event. 

We were also given valuable advice from renowned psychologist, guidance counselor, and author, Michelle S. Alignay, who explained the role and relevance of technology in managing the family and the home in this modern time. My understanding about digital age deepened and I am truly blessed to have attended this event for it has been such a fruitful learning experience. 
PLDT Home embraced parenting in this new era of technology and trumpets the notion that the strongest connection is found at home. I commend them for creating new products that promote the importance of being connected to your family even when you’re not physically with them. 
“The Strongest Connections are at Home”- PLDT Home
I am happiest with their FAMCAM. It is a reliable home monitoring system where you can watch your children in everything they do wherever you are. My dream of being with them 24/7 may just come true with this newest product from PLDT.

Basic FAMCAM is at P99/month for 36 months (one time payment P3,000)

They also showcased the PLDT Home Smart Watch. This cool gadget can make your kids jump for joy for it lets them send and receive calls, listen to music, take groupfies via remote, and a whole lot more.
The last product they introduced will be available in the market soon. PLDT Home FamZone Box P299, PLDT Home FamZone App: P149. It is a device that helps monitor and control kids’ internet activities. It’s perfect because even when I’m out travelling or going to events like this, my heart can be at ease because I know that they won’t have access to dangerous sites and watch inappropriate online content.

FamZone is the top parental control device. 
Other features include:
  • Time Setting
  • Sleep Time
  • Website restrictions
  • Manage customized profiles 

I’ve been in the blogging industry for a while now and multi-tasking has become my bread and butter. I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again, the secret to life is balance. For example, as great as the new technologies are, it is still important to interact with people in real life. We have to limit our kids not to deprive them of fun, but to widen their horizons and make sure that school is not getting pushed aside. And as for me, I have to balance my family life with my career as a blogger. Even though it is difficult, I believe that having the best of both worlds is attainable and is worth the hard work. I know that I can do all things with the right mindset, good equipment, and of course, God. 
I want to thank #PLDTHome for helping me achieve my goals as a mother and a blogger. They made it possible for me to become the best mommy-version of myself when I am at home and even when I am away. #MyPeaceOfMind 
I am truly grateful for this event and I look forward to more. It has been an amazing experience and an eye-opener of how important it is to be connected to your kids in this digital age.
I sincerely hope that somehow I was able to pass it onto you, my readers, how big of a deal it is to become aware and be involved in your kids’ online activities. Let us all be responsible users of the world’s modern technology and be a good example to our children. I wish us all a good and informative day ahead.

  1. This is an innovation from PLDT. Two thumbs up for this. 👍👍

    Btw, I've experienced using PLDT connection when I was in college, sobrang mabilis. It takes seconds to load a page, actually in a single snap nga lang eh madadirect ka na sa page that you're browsing. Maliban na lang syempre pag malakas ulan o madaming nakikiconnect. Hahaha. 😂😂😂

    I have a son also and we have the same perspective when it comes to this issue Ms. Rochelle. In this digital age, we should always be on the look-out lalo na sa daily activities na iniengage ng ating mga anak. Siguro paglaki ng anak ko, sobrang advanced na lalo ng technology but I am not worried kasi I am here to guide him. It's always been our ultimate concern as moms. So, sa ganitong innovations na ginagawa ng PLDT, talagang we can be closer to our homes. 👏👏👏

  2. Wow Ms. Rochelle you are so lucky to have meet mom celebrities :)I wish someday I could also bond with them :)

  3. Hi Miss Rochelle, Thank you so much for sharing your experience, learnings and thoughts. I agree with your now adays internet can be a good or bad modem for kids, i am mom of 4 months old girl and I want to take care of her with doing m work. I will definitely practice what I read and share to my friends :) Blessings

  4. Ganda naman po ng event na iyan...sharing of tips pa po ah for families that using gadgets. Dito saming lugar unavailable pa po services nila na bago, yug magpapabilis pa po lalo ng Internet :( We've been waiting for that.. Ang gaganda at sulit po ng mga inooffer nilang mga gadgets..

  5. Safety is always on top of our priority ❤️ Especially with our kids..
    Thank you for this very informative blog Ms Rochelle..

  6. You're right, Ms. Rochelle technology has really empowered our lives. I also rely most on the internet... so as my daughter... May konting kelangan lang ako, hinahanap ko agad sa internet (haha) at mga bata ngayon kung minsan mas marunong pa sa atin in terms of usage of the internet.

    This is so cool! Once again #PLDTHome will be launching a new product. I think this will greatly help moms like us, monitoring our children at home even if we are not with them. :)

  7. Napakaganda tlaga ng PLDT ngayon dahil sa mga bagong product innovation na multi tasking na rin katulad natin. Like the pldt fam cam mas madali mo ng makita yung mga ginagawa ng anak mo at parang ang lapit lapit mo lang sa kanya :) At yung smart watch na magagamit kapag emergency makakapagtxt agad. :)

  8. We use PLDTHome as our internet. Sana lalo pa maimprove ang service nila para naman mas lalo tayo umunlad!
