The importance of play is undeniable-especially in children. While toy stories today are full of the newest knickknacks and gadgets that appeal to both children and adults, it's still a difficult task to select which toys are actually worth buying. This month, Smart Parenting makes this task easier for you with its annual list of best toys. From interactive toys to encourage sharing to cute toys to boost your baby's brainpower, as well as a feature on how to teach your child independent play, you will find what you need to ensure the best quality playtime for your little one.
As well-loved actress and host Camille Prats and son, Nathan, grace the November cover of Smart Parenting, she shares her touching story of dealing with the loss of her husband to cancer, raising Nathan on her own, and some advice for new moms everywhere. She shares, "enjoy what you have now, kasi sobrang ikli lang ng buhay."
Also in this issue, read up on how to better communicate with your kids with features like "No more power struggles" - 44 ways to turn conflict into cooperation - and "kid's toughest questions" - smart answers to satisfy your child's curiosity. Find out if you're raising a spoiled brat in "Spoiled Rotten!" and learn how you can avoid spoiling your children (and damage control if they already are). What's more, Smart Parenting sits down with five women of different faiths as they give advice on raising morally upright kids, something that all parents, regardless of beliefs, aspire to do.
