The question every mother is confronted with nowadays is this: How do we make the digital world work for the advantage of today’s generation?
It is along this line that PLDT ambassadors and celebrity mothers Camille Prats-Yambao, Isabel Oli-Prats, and Dimples Romana weigh in on their experiences mothering their young children at home. These digitally-savvy moms show that technology is not an enemy, but a tool for education and entertainment that can help them raise their children better.
They find great help through quality home entertainment available to them in high-definition digital content from the all-in-one entertainment box Roku Powered TVolution, made possible by high-speed internet from PLDT Home Fibr. These moms have found a way to ensure that screen time is bonding time for the family.
For Camille, the plug-and-play Roku Powered TVolution allows her and son Nate to bond over their favorite channels from Cignal and shows from Netflix.
“We love watching shows together and it’s great because we can talk about it. These bonding moments really matter to me especially since he’s growing up and he’s going to want to a lot of me-time,” she shared.
Meanwhile, her sister-in-law Isabel, who is mom to adorable baby Feather, enjoys her share of kiddie shows as well and they even find it as a good opportunity to bond as a family, even with doting dad John.
She explained, “We work in showbiz so we already know what it’s like behind the camera. It’s nice to be on the opposite end, as a viewer who’s just relaxing at home.”
Dimples, who has a teenager and toddler, sees home entertainment as a way to come together as a family.
“When we were younger, we saw TV as just a distraction from important things. Today, it’s more than that. You can start conversations, discover new things together, have fun together – it’s a simple activity that can mean so much,” she said.
Dimples added that the convenience of being able to access diverse and family-friendly content at the touch of a button is priceless. “Everything is easier and faster so we have more time for the things that matter.”
Working and doting moms like Camille, Isabel and Dimples are the digital managers of their homes, thanks to Smart Home devices that empower them to ensure the safety and security of their loved ones, and that enable them to enjoy quality and seamless family bonding time at home.
