Mr. Alfredo A.

He explained the duties of parents, parent-child relationship, and role and influence of parents on child’s future.

During the open-forum, the participants with children also shared their experiences in raising their children.

In addition, Mr. Venzon emphasized that there’s no best way to raise children because all parents have their own unique way of raising them.

Moreover, Ms. Shirlyn M. Rom, Staff of GAD-RC, informed the participants of the result of the health monitoring (blood pressure) which was facilitated by Ms. Mary Antoniette D. Viray, GAD Coordinator together with the students of the College of Nursing.  Out of the 31 participants, one of them was found to have high blood pressure which the participant claimed to be normal for him.
