“It takes a village to raised a child.” One of the reasons I set this blog up is to allow parents from different walks of life to share stories with each other. Learning from one another opens up new perspectives on raising our own children. It also gives us material to reflect on our own parenting approach and the areas where we may need support or should work on.    Every child is unique. Raising a child requires relying on the experiences of relatives, friends, colleagues,...
Check out a couple of schemes that assist less advantaged children and families: Fresh Start Housing Scheme (MND) - A scheme helps improve housing affordability for families may have previously owned a flat, but they encountered difficulties such as the loss of a loved one or unemployment, sold it and ended up in public rental housing. As second-timers, they find it hard to afford another HDB flat because they no longer qualify for housing grants which are mostly given to first-timers. Many aspire...
Raising resilient children I’ve had my eye on Fuji kindergarten in Japan since watching a TED video last year. Mr Takaharu Tezuka, the architect of Fuji Kindergarten, delivered these lines in his speech, which has touched and moved me deeply: “… don't control them (children), don't protect them too much.

Be a role model for my child. The desire to do good make sometimes sound too good to be true and overly idealised. What I am aiming to do is not so much to achieve an idealistic goal, but to “walk the talk” and show my child that when “there is a will, there is a way”. At this point, I feel the success I hope to achieve -- making a difference in the lives of families -- is still a long way off. I am still in the process of making it happen, learning through the process and...
I've learnt about life through my parents via guided participation Looking back my childhood and how my parents brought us up, I recall bits and pieces of some memorable moments. When I was one, my parents threw me a birthday party in their hometown. There was a photo of my mother holding me in her arms, my father and my grandparents. As the eldest child, I felt adored till my four younger siblings were born, one after another. We moved into a bigger house in the southernmost city in Malaysia,...
How I Got Here How did all this start? At the end of 2011/2, I did a visioning exercise at work, guided by my boss who had just returned from Small Giants Zingerman’s workshop in Ann Arbor, Michigan. During my visioning exercise, I realized that my life was no longer about 9am-to-9pm web production and delivery of the job anymore. In fact, my first priority in life is the HAPPINESS of my daughter, Ally. Undeniably, there was considerable amount of guilt as I had to leave her at the infant...
