How to best be a Parent-Coach for my Child during Exam Season

It is inevitable: Anxiety and stress heightens as our children go through the education system and face national examinations! How can we become the parent-coach our children need as they go through these academic challenges?

Join our host, Chong Ee Jay, who chats with Pauline Foo, a mother of three and an educator who has been in the field for more than 20 years.

Speaking about understanding our unique child, Pauline shares about taking individualistic approaches in parenting and how motivating our children requires us to motivate ourselves too. More importantly, academic success does not determine our child's worth, nor our success as a parent. Being a parent-coach means that our child's journey to maturity also means a journey of growth as parents!


As a society, mental health has been an uprising concern, especially amongst our youth.

Join us for our upcoming Raising Future-Ready Kids: Suicide Prevention & Mental Health webinar and learn how to recognise signs of anxiety, depression and mental health challenges, know what to do in the event your child experiences a mental health crisis, and have critical conversations about life and death.
