Growing up has always been a bitter sweet and challenging journey for both the child and the parents. When the time has come for the little ones to flap their wings and fly away from the nest, parents are often the ones feeling more nervous and worried about what lies ahead for their little one.
“Will he be able to take care of himself?”
“Is he able to listen and follow instructions?”
“Have I spent enough time to prepare him for primary education?”
“Have I given him too much screen time?”
“Can he catch up in the class?”
“Will he get bullied by his peers?”
The mental struggle is real.
It is thus, the core topic to be addressed in the “Evening with Joyce & Robert”.
Join us this special evening with our two distinguished speaker, Joyce Lim and Robert Pereira, who will be there to support your parenting worries. Empower your mind with the knowledge of how to transit your child smoothly from pre-school to primary school education and have a deeper understanding about the effects of gadgets on education and on the psyche of children.
In hope that when the time has come, YOU, are ready.
