Mothers have their own ways of raising their kids and sometimes the differences lead to the so-called “mom-shaming” when one parent imposes her own style to other moms. Celebrities, as public figures, are prone to criticisms, albeit mom-shaming can happen even inside the family circle.
In the November 8 episode of I Feel U, modern celebrity moms Coleen Garcia, Isabelle Daza, and Liz Uy talk about parenting and share their experiences of being mom-shamed.
Host Toni Gonzaga opened the episode with a short interview with guest Kapamilya Devine Encluna, an entrepreneur from Bulacan. Apart from being a businesswoman, Devine also juggles being a full-time college professor and a mom of four.
Devine described parenting as leadership, thus it entails wise decision-making. She and her husband work as a team and they’re grateful for the help of their own parents.
People would sometimes question Devine’s parenting style due to her hectic schedule. They doubt her ability to manage her time and give full attention to her kids. When the pressure gets overwhelming, Devine simply holds on to prayer and focuses on the people who matter and those who are supportive of her decisions.
