Giving Your Child a Headstart: Nailing Kiasu Parenting

Parenting can be a lot of stress especially when we consider the rigor and environment that our kids are in. How do I give my child a headstart? Is he coping in school, what if he’s falling behind the cohort? What does my child need for success in life? 

Join CEO of Focus on the Family Singapore, Joanna Koh-Hoe, and our guest for the week, Yvonne Kong-Ho as they share honest conversations about their parenting goals and the challenges that parents are facing in raising kids beyond the need to excel academically.

Tune in to catch the tips on how to be a parent-coach in nurturing children with A.C.R.E skills: 

A: Adaptability

C: Creative problem solving, critical thinking skills, collaborative working styles

R: Resilience

E: Empathy 

Yvonne works in a university, specialising in workforce development. She has a passion for taking on a cradle-to-grave approach in developing people and their careers. She is also a working mum and a part-time PhD student.
