Kean Cipriano schools us about parenting based on his personal experiences

We sure have read a lot of inspiring parenting tips from the books and the internet. So now it's time to get some tips from a parent in the spotlight and first in our list is rookie daddy Kean Cipriano.

We all know him as a musician, actor, and the lead vocalist of the band Callalily. But behind the camera, he is a hands-on dad who devotes his time and energy to baby Stellar, his daughter to wife Chynna Ortaleza.

At the "Triptiko" press conference held earlier today, August 1, Kean made us swoon with his parenting skills and tips.

1. Always SPEND TIME with your child.

"Kung pwede ko siyang buhatin, bubuhatin namin talaga kasi ang bilis lang ng panahon. Take turns kami talaga. 'Pag may trabaho siya, ako 'yung kasama. 'Pag naman may work ako, siya ang kasama. 'Pag parehas kami na may work, thankful lang din kami kasi meron siyang lola, lolo na nag-aalaga. Masaya sila doon. Kumbaga inaayos lang talaga namin 'yung schedule namin like every single day po, kung pa'no po siya magtu-turn out."

2. CHERISH each moment.

"Gusto namin i-cherish 'yung like first year nung baby namin na peaceful lang siya. Ngayon, unti-unti na siyang nagkakaroon ng utak at nagkakaroon na siya ng personality. We've come to this point na we realized na she is like a big part of who we are."

3. Be a RESPONSIBLE parent.

"Lahat ng aspeto ng buhay mo magku-curve papunta doon sa anak mo. Kung dati sarili lang.. All me... Rock and roll tapos bahala na bukas... Ngayon, hindi na siya ganun eh. Parang gusto mong ilagay sa tama 'yung mga bagay. Parang kumbaga magri-risk ka pero calculated risk siya. Alam mo 'yung may pamilya kang kailangan mong alagaan. Kahit ako rin, mas naging maingat ako sa sarili ko ngayon kasi kumbaga, wala akong karapatang mamatay. Siguro kahit patay na ako, sasabihin ko ''Di ako pwedeng mamatay.'"

4. Be your child's SUPERHERO.

"Sa sarili ko, totoo 'yung sinasabi nila na 'pag naging tatay ka na, feeling mo superhero ka na. Gagawin mo lahat. Nakikita ko rin na parang kaya ko palang magmahal ng higit doon sa alam kong ibig sabihin ng pagmamahal. Alam mo 'yun? This is unconditional love. Hindi mo mababayaran 'yun.

"Never ako nakakita ng taong katulad ni Chynna. Iba magmahal si Chynna. Iba rin siya mag-alaga. Kumbaga 'yung 110% niya kulang. May 500% pa siya. All-out si Chynna. Sobra siyang ma-research. Iba 'yung pag-aalaga niya sa'min kaya sobra akong saludo sa misis ko."

5. EDUCATE your child.

"Maybe that's the thing about being a parent, it's a life-long assessment of yourself and you're gonna figure out if you're doing the right thing or not. We'll never gonna know if we're doing the right things. Parang with social media, siguro the best way to protect your child kung anuman ang pwede niya ma-expose-an is simply talk to her and be honest with her. Educate her with what I believe is right. Technology is rapidly growing. Gagabayan mo lang talaga 'yung bata and be honest with her."

6. Parenting is a COMMITMENT

"Sobra [kaming hands-on]. Kumbaga wala namang choice, wala namang way kasi you were given a human being to take care of. Life commitment na siya more than being hands-on. Commitment talaga. Doon ko na-appreciate mga magulang ko, hindi nila ako pinabayaan."

7. SUPPORT your child's dreams.

"Kung ano 'yung gustong gawin ng anak namin, susuportahan ko 'yan. Kung gusto niyang mag-showbiz, kung gusto niyang mag-arkitekto, kung anuman 'yung gusto niyang gawin sa buhay niya... Bilang magulang susuportahan ko siya."

8. Be a ROLE MODEL.

"Mahal na mahal ko 'yung asawa ko eh. Hindi ko kayang i-risk [na magloko]. Parang ang weird lang ng pakiramdam na mahal na mahal ko 'yung asawa ko pero merong ibang babae? 'Di ba? Isa siyang malaking kalokohan para sa'kin. Parang walang rin sense 'yung ganun. 

"Mas nakatingin ako dun sa positive sides of life: Chynna, Stellar, 'yung music, 'yung art. Mas naging fueled ako.

"Si Chynna kasi nung naging kami, alam ko then and there, 'yun na 'yun. Meron ako sa sarili ko na I can't mess this whole thing up. We were inseparable naman since naging kami hanggang ngayong araw na 'to."

Kean stars in one of Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino's official entries "Triptiko" with Albie Casino, Kylie Padilla, and Joseph Marco.

The "#MedyoWerid" film, directed by Miguel Franco Michelena, is distributed by Star Cinema.

It will be released for a week in cinemas nationwide starting August 16.
