On the recent talk conducted by Wyeth Philippines that I attended about child development, I just found out that there is the best time in our child's life in optimizing their innate skills. All I thought is that one's talents can be honed at any age and any given opportunity. Dr. Joselyn Eusebio, a developmental-behavioral pediatrician, said that the crucial window of talent development presents itself only at a child's critical age of learning, which happens during a child's 1st 6 years of life. "This is the optimum time for parents to help their child stimulate his or her brain to pave way for better development. Aside from proper nutrition and a stimulating environment, parental support is imperative at this stage," added Dr. Eusebio.

I would really agree that parental support is much needed to develop our child's potential. Parents should be their child's number 1 fan and supporter. Parents should encourage their children not to give up on their dreams. Parents should be the one to motivate their children whenever they feel discouraged and when failure comes along the way. Parents should be positive in letting their child know that there is a bright future ahead of him/her.
To further emphasize the importance of parents' role during the child's developing stage (0-6 years old), Didi Manahan M.S. Ed., directress of Keys Scholl Manila and Explorations Preschool said that a child can grow or develop a talent through possessing life skills, and acquiring this set of skills entails thorough guidance and strong support from parents and teachers. "It is vital that parents respond to their child's areas of interest, strength and need, to ensure the child's success," said Ms. Manahan.

We have been seeing child prodigies on TV and we can still remember some of them, like Shaira Luna, James Flores, and Kiko Galura. Promil Pre-School has been the parents' partner in helping their children achieve their potential by providing them with the unique combination of brain and body building nutrients which help support learning during the crucial window of talent development for more than twenty years now.
I-Shine Talent Camp has been the avenue created by Promil Pre-School to help parents hone their child's talents to their maximum potential. Now on its fifth year, I-Shine Talent Camp has been continuing to enable parents to develop, celebrate, and support their child's talents while inspiring other parents to do the same.
