Actress Iya Villania said via a PEP interview that the biggest challenge she had so-far with her one-year-old son Baby Primo is to teach him how to brush his teeth.

She described it “medyo giyera”, adding that the toddler wants to do it himself but she’s sure that he will just sip the toothbrush.

According to her, she asserts parental authority to correct Primo’s habit.

“So even if it’s hard, even if medyo pilit, kahit hindi niya naiintindihan, I really have to force it because I mean para sa kanya din naman yun, e.” [Even if it is a little forced, even if he does not understand yet. I have to do it because it’s for him.]

Iya hopes he will soon thank her for teaching him how to brush his teeth. She explained toddler stage is the formative years and is the perfect time to train and create habits.

Primo is the son of Iya and Kapuso talent Drew Arellano.

The baby, like his parents, has made rounds on social media via his photos shared by Iya and Drew.
