In this video of Bongbong Marcos, he has a contrasting opinion on a no internet games rule for the children in the family. Instead, he warns parents to be vigilant by understanding their child’s activities online. This is because the skills needed in industries right now are also going digital. Mobile gaming now is not just a form of entertainment but a way of training to enhance creativity. Parents could be killing a child’s potential as an app creator that pays a lot of money. Like one educator said; Why force a child to go to school when he or she wants to do something else? Let the young ones fail so that they can learn, he added.

Odyssey.
Bloons TD 6.
Crashlands.
Crossy Road.
Eternium.
A few Square Enix games.
Friday the 13th.
Hooky Crook.

Online Jobs Require Creativity and Diligence

Like any other online jobs, creativity, and diligence are needed to become a mobile gaming developer or even just a mere star player. Creating a mobile game app or performing well need concentration. Nagging children about staying away from their phones can only frustrate them. You must have a more interesting alternative if you wish your son or daughter to do something else.

Raising a Millionaire

Marcos reminds adults to be aware if you are raising a future millionaire. Brian Wong In 2010 with friends, Courtney Guertin and Amadeus Demarzi, founded Kiip. It is a mobile app rewards platform that allows companies and brands to give real-world rewards for in-game achievements. Kiip is active on more than 1,100 apps. It is installed on 75 million devices. These kids are just a few successful individuals. Simply because they are passionate with what they’re doing. Nurturing parents can enhance the talents of their offsprings.

A Degree Does Not Guarantee a Good-Paying Job

In the Philippines, there are many university degree holders who are still minimum wagers after many years of working in a company. These are people who are contented with routine jobs. Their biggest fear is the penetration of AI in businesses. All systematic tasks can soon be handled by it thus, eliminating the need for hiring people for these positions. However, a robot can never replace creativity, passion, and talent. So, time to make adjustments on parenthood strategies to mold happy and successful future people in the workforce.

Creativity and Diligence

Like any other online jobs, creativity, and diligence are a must. A self-starter already has many challenges by achieving his or her goal in creating a mobile game app or in merely performing well. Discouraging parents can only kill the spirit.

Young Millionaires

Brian Wong In 2010 along with his colleagues Courtney Guertin and Amadeus Demarzi, founded Kiip.

Unconventional Parenthood

In the Philippines, it is always the aim of most parents for their children to have a university degree. Sometimes, they are not mindful of what career can make them happy. It is found that people who love their work are the happiest people on earth. So, perhaps parents must change along with these innovative developments.
