Win big with your ‘to­day’ mo­ment

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

BASED on a re­cent sur­vey con­ducted on 1,500 work­ing and non-work­ing Malaysian moth­ers, it was dis­cov­ered that work­ing moth­ers con­sider less than half of the time spent with their chil­dren as qual­ity time and two out of three say that they will stop work and spend more time with their kids if money was not an is­sue.

To en­cour­age Malaysian moth­ers to make the most of their time with their chil­dren, for­mu­lated milk pow­der for chil­dren Friso Gold in­tro­duces “Our To­day Mo­ments” con­test with 100 life­time ex­pe­ri­ences worth a to­tal of RM1mil to give away (terms and con­di­tions ap­ply).

Ac­cord­ing to Anja Henze, mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor of Dutch Lady Milk In­dus­tries Ber­had, which mar­kets and pro­duces Friso Gold, “The truth is that ev­ery mother wants to pri­ori­tise her time with her chil­dren amid the thou­sands of things she needs to do, but she can get so caught up some­times that she for­gets to ap­pre­ci­ate the true joy of grow­ing up to­gether with her child. Our con­test serves as an en­cour­age­ment to set aside her daily rou­tine and not post­pone the ‘to­day’ mo­ments with her pre­cious ones.”

Friso Gold am­bas­sadors, ac­tresses and tele­vi­sion show hosts Belinda Chee and Sazzy Falak both be­lieve in liv­ing in the mo­ment when they are with their chil­dren.

For Chee, spend­ing time with her daugh­ter Danielle Eng is her pri­or­ity, “I would drop my to-dos to en­sure I take the time ev­ery day to take Danielle on her favourite walk in our gar­den.”

When­ever she is with her twin daugh­ters, Imaan Lily Nazril and Tiara Rose Nazril, Sazzy makes it a point to put away her phone. “I kept snap­ping pic­tures of my girls and up­load­ing them on In­sta­gram, but that dis­tracted me from fully fo­cus­ing on my twins. So now I keep my phone in my bag when­ever I’m spend­ing time with them – which means no check­ing work e-mail or so­cial me­dia as well,” says Sazzy.

Anja ad­vises moth­ers who plan to join the con­test, “It doesn’t mat­ter what you dream of, we want to help make it come true. Our aim is to em­power moth­ers to pri­ori­tise her time with her fam­ily and el­e­vate her ex­pe­ri­ence of moth­er­hood by mak­ing the most of the in­cred­i­ble jour­ney of grow­ing up to­day.”

Blog­ger mum Suhaila Saleh wishes for a trip to Dis­ney­land with her three chil­dren. Fel­low blog­ger mum Doreen Phang dreams of learn­ing an in­stru­ment with her three chil­dren. How­ever, both ad­mit th­ese dreams are too costly for them right now.

Moth­ers with lim­i­ta­tions, like Phang and Suhaila, just need to en­ter the “Our To­day Mo­ments” con­test and seize the op­por­tu­nity to em­bark on an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney with their lit­tle ones.

To par­tic­i­pate, write down a spe­cial life­time ex­pe­ri­ence (big or small) that you have al­ways wanted to have with your child/ chil­dren but have not been able to make it hap­pen, and why.

Send in your en­tries be­fore Feb 28.
