What makes one a superhero mum or dad?

To me, a superhero mum/dad is one who is there for their children every step of the way to celebrate the milestones and qualities that make them who they are. And that is exactly what I have been trying to do for our 3.5-year-old, in my quest to give her happy memories of her childhood and to prepare her for the challenging years ahead – just realised the other day that she only has a few years she left before she starts big girl school!

However, things are not as simple as they appear when it comes to parenting. There have been numerous times when my frustration brought out the worst in me, especially when Little Miss C decides to have a go at pressing my buttons when I’m trying to teach her!

Now, if only there was a way to pick up some super parenting tips from the experts to work our way through these challenges.

WIN a Pair of Tickets to the “Active Parenting – Developing Your Child Holistically” session at the Singapore Parenting Congress 2016!

We all want our kids to excel in school, but what can we do to help them achieve success?

As we have seen from the recent announcement on the PSLE changes which will take effect from 2021, success in today’s world and tomorrow’s future involves a lot more than just academic excellence. It is also important for children to develop “soft skills” and be an all-rounder in order to be truly successful in life.

In the Active Parenting – Developing Your Child Holistically session, Mr. James Gary Satchy, a family life educator will share tips on what parents can do to develop their children in 4 areas: Active Learning, Character Choices, Emotional Health and Social Skills. All these areas are interlined to help our children be resilient in the face of challenges so that they can be true successes in life.
