Vlogger Mommy Prax says ‘super moms’ aren’t perfect—Here’s why!

Vlogger Prax Policarpio, better known as Mommy Prax, shares why being a super mom isn’t the goal of parenting.

Parents are often seen as super moms or super dads, juggling work, managing the household, and attending to their kids. But vlogger Prax Policarpio, better known as Mommy Prax, believes that moms and dads don’t need to be omnipresent and omniscient all the time.

In an interview with broadcaster Bernadette Sembrano on her vlog, Mommy Prax shared her belief that being a “Super Mom” doesn’t mean doing it all alone.

“We try to be perfect moms, perfect parents. Pero tao lang tayo. Hindi tayo magiging perfect. Lagi namin mantra is kailangan sa atin maging nanay at tatay, hindi maging perpekto,” said Mommy Prax.

“Definition ko ng Super Mom is holistic siya. Hindi ikaw lang. Importante ang partner mo at community around you, the family. A Super Mom is someone na marunong humingi ng tulong,”she added.

Mommy Prax isn’t just talking the talk. She recalled realizing the importance of asking for help when she became a mother to her firstborn, Marcus.

“Dati, independent strong women ka na kaya mo lahat, sa school, sa work ako lahat. That is hanggang magkaanak ka. Boom! As in dun ako nagstart to ask for help,” she recalled.

“It really takes a village to raise a child… Talagang sasabihin mo, ‘okay lang ba magpatulong?’ Whether may work ka or gusto mo lang magpahinga, mag ask ka ng help,” she added.

In 2023, Mommy Prax started filming her daily table conversations with Marcus, capturing an audience online with his unusually mature perspective on life. Prax has been married to Nicole Policarpio since 2017.
