Champion paddlers and mothers on PSC’s Rise Up! Shape Up!

The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) steers its National Women’s Month Celebration highlighting the mother-daughter bond of world-class Pinay paddlers Maribeth Caranto and Rosalyn Esguerra on the March 13 episode of Rise Up! Shape Up!    

Maribeth Caranto is part of the 2018 Philippine national dragonboat team that won the gold medal in the 2018 ICF World Dragonboat Championships. She stresses the extraordinary work her mother has done to support her dreams. 

Rosalyn Esguerra, also shares how her mother made both ends meet for the family when her father died when she was just a year old. Esguerra’s mother fulfilled this responsibility while encouraging her daughter’s career as a paddler.      

“As a mother, you can exercise great influence on your daughter's passion for sports or lifelong pursuit of physical fitness. The eagerness for your daughters to get into sports starts from you, mothers. So, the PSC is renewing its dedication, despite the pandemic, to tap the women in the sports sector to be more creative in its campaign to increase the number of girls engaged in sports,” expressed PSC Women in Sports Oversight Commissioner Celia H. Kiram.  

Licensed psychologist and Philippine Association of Child and Play Therapy’s Riza Ng joins the episode for a short talk on mindful parenting and shares tips on how to practice mindfulness in the various parenting styles.
