Metro is set to inform, involve, and recharge moms with a Mother’s Day event dubbed “Metro MomCon,” a one-day gathering to inspire them to live their best lives despite the pandemic happening this Saturday (May 15).
The free event will take place on Zoom, and will cover panel discussions and workshops on parenting, food, home and living, relationships, and beauty.
Here are five things to learn from the first-ever “Metro MomCon”:
1. How to Keep Your Sanity While Raising Your Kids
Do you want to create healthy guiltless boundaries, protect your space, and maintain self-love, while being an amazing mom to your kids? Join this panel discussion to be hosted by Metro editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra and led by one of the country’s leading experts in personal development and well-being, Dr. Lia Bernardo. The event will also feature celebrity moms Andi Manzano, Bianca Gonzalez-Intal, Jodi Sta. Maria, Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, and Sofia Andres.
