Teachable Moment With Kids: Needs vs Wants

My kids and I have a lot of bonding moments at home, especially now that we are in the second year of this pandemic. They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money. As a parent, it is one of the primary life skills children must learn at home to manage their liquid assets properly. Even in their younger years, I let them use their piggy bank. Any coin that they get changes from the food they buy. They already keep it in their piggy banks.  But how soon must we teach our kids proper money management? As soon as my kid starts to count and recognize money and when they begin receiving monetary allowances, I should start teaching them the importance of money and how to manage it wisely.

#TSM Recommends; Coco Haven Natural Deodorant

TMI. When I gave birth to my youngest, my hormones have been overly crazy. I really do not understand what is going on but I am sure that something has really changed. My skin shifts from oily to dry and vice versa on some days. I sweat a lot compared to the previous post partum pregnancies. And when I sweat a lot it means I am prone to bacteria and body odor. YEP.


What really works for me is to change clothes more often and freshen up in order for me to stay fresh all day. So that would be xx number of laundry in a day and xx number of clothes needs folding in a week. So the domino effect takes toll on me again and a never-ending vicious cycle.

But what is more vague is that those products that worked for me before is not working right now, most especially deodorant. I have tried almost all that is, but faill. If you can still remember, I mentioned here in one of my posts that I tried a local brand Coco Haven body wash for my children few months back. I tried my luck and also tried one of their product line which is their deodorant in the hopes of finally finding the right one. And so…


Expiration is indicated on the label and most of all, not tested on animals

Has natural ingredients.

This deodorant gave me few reasons to be babbling my thoughts here. Here’s why:


  • It could last me at least eight hours feeling fresh. That means, despite me enslaving myself from all the chores, I still feel fresh all day.

  • I didn’t like it. I never did because I loved it! I love the scent because it smells natural and not strong.

  • It is available locally. You can get yours at Hoy Bata Ph and 9 months and Beyond or if you do not have the liberty to go out and shop, these stores can ship right at your doorstep.

  • It doesn’t make my underarm dark. Enough said.

  • It also doesn’t stain my clothes unlike the others.

  • Best of all, it is a local product and you know very much how I support our local products.


That’s it. If you are looking for a deo recommendation, then you might want to give this a try. You can get yours in the following stores:
