Dear Our Awesome Planet friends,

Greetings from Our Awesome Planet!

It’s very challenging to raise kids with a highly competitive academic environment and evolving school curriculums and pervasive influence of social media and the internet.

I continue to seek the best ways to raise my own kids to develop the next awesome generation of Filipinos.
