MANILA, Philippines — As mothers with preschoolers, we often find ourselves studying the unique personalities, love languages and nutritional needs of our little ones. It's a joyful challenge that requires a tailored approach for each child.
Just ask Andi Manzano-Reyes, the doting mom of three beautiful daughters, including the spirited four year-old, Amelia.
