How We Learnt To Co-Parent in Tandem

Parenting can often feel like a lonely journey. With all the roles we juggle in life and the limited number of hours every day brings, many parents can feel like we are scrapping the bottom of the barrel. But parenting is not meant to be a one-man or one-woman show, it’s meant to be done in tandem. 

In this episode, our host Aaron Ng catches up with husband and wife, Kevin and Edna Thio as they share about their adventures and misadventures in co-parenting, and reveal some of their secrets and tips that helped make co-parenting a wonderful experience for them.

Kevin and Edna have been married for 23 years and have 4 children, aged 21, 19, 16 and 12. They run Yellow Octopus, a creative agency and design practice devoted to strategic, authentic and thoughtful design. They are role models to the people in the creative industry and in their community, and they enjoy having meaningful conversations.
