PLDT Home Bro Helps Forge Stronger Family Connections

Nowadays, having internet at home is already a necessity and no longer considered a luxury. After all, my work as a contributing writer entails research, email interviews, and submissions that are mostly done online.

Likewise, hubby and the kids need internet connection to do office and school work. I’ve experienced how inconvenient it is to make the effort to go out and pay extra when one needs to access the web from an internet shop so it makes me more grateful that members of my family don’t have to. I’m sure moms of other students are also assured of their children’s safety if the kids don’t have to leave home to do research or print homework in internet cafes. 

Another advantage of having internet at home is being able to download apps that can foster family bonding. We get to play educational and entertaining games together and communicate for free via Skype or Viber when some of us are out of the house. I find this feature most useful when I, or hubby, are on trips and we need to talk to each other without having to pay exorbitant charges on phone calls.

Moms having fun playing charades
Recently, PLDT Home Bro and Nuffnang Philippines held a brunch for a select group of blogger moms and their kids at The Borough in Podium. Those who brought their young children bonded over various fun activities. We also got to play charades using a cool app that’s easy to use. Our group didn’t win but the laughter over some of the mommies’ antics was enough to keep us all smiling.

Brunch at The Borough
It was indeed a time of bonding fun that should be regularly replicated at home. I’ve just downloaded the Charades app and can’t wait to start playing some games with hubby and the kids. I’m sure we’ll have more fun because we no longer would have to spend more time thinking of guess words nor write them on small pieces of paper and stick them on a cap like what we’ve been doing in the past (too much effort, I know!). 

According to Product Manager Pei Mallari, PLDT Home Bro (1) Enables families to have meaningful interactions with each other though light-hearted moments of connection, (2) Promotes Enjoyment as much as Education, and (3) is the great Equalizer for Filipinos nationwide because having internet at home makes it easier to succeed in life, specifically in school.
