Think back to the biggest, most important endeavour you have ever taken on. Entrance exam, climbing a mountain, starting a business. The question is, did you just wing it? Chances are that the stakes were too high. You probably asked for advice, read about other people's experiences, discovered strategies to perform better. You practised really hard!
Raising a happy and confident child is one of life's biggest endeavours. Yet, we hesitate to take the same approach with parenting.
There is a perception that parents should just know what to do naturally. By following the examples of their own parents, they should be able to get by, if they just love their children enough.
We all want a happy and loving family. As parents, we want the best for our child. But after a long day's work, with tons of chores to be done, do we feel the joy or strain of parenting? Are we just getting by? Furthermore, with the onslaught of online gaming & entertainment, are we relegating the responsibilities of engaging with our children to the internet?
Parenting is one of life's most exciting journeys. That's why we love the tips, tools and strategies that the Parenting Toolbox courses offer to inspire and equip us for this challenging yet fulfilling parenting experience in the 21st century.
This course is for you, if you are:
wanting to build a family that can be more, do more and give more, but just don't have the time or know-how
looking for solutions to get your children to do what they should without resorting to yelling, bribery and frustration
searching for better ways to connect with your child
a parent who just wants to be a better parent

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“Parenting tool box was a great experience for us as we learned to work and agree together as parents in bringing up our son. We learnt to set boundaries for our son while involving him in decisions that we make as a family. By setting goals and targets as a family we can then set out to work towards them together. This course has made us understand ourselves and son better.
The sharing amongst the parents in our group throughout the course was invaluable. Knowing that we are not alone in this and learning the parenting strategies helped to strengthen our confidence in parenting.”
Adrian Heong, Toolbox Participant
“Both me and my wife attended this program as we believe its not just the mother alone but a shared responsibility between both parents to educate their children. We also did not wish to be bound to our ‘default’ methods of parenting we learn from our own parents which may not be appropriate in this day and age. We are glad we did!
Without giving any spoilers, we learned about methods and tools we can use to communicate, to share experiences, to discipline and to forge deeper and stronger relationships with our children. Every parent who wishes the best for their children should attend this course."
Tommy Ng, Toolbox Participant
“I am a single mom with 3 children. After the Toolbox course, I disciplined myself to follow what I have learned and I find that the handling of my children had greatly improved and this is also seen in the change in the behavior of my children.
Before, I used to be judgmental and forced my ideas on them. Now, I tend to invite them to share their ideas. We now share a healthier relationship, and I can see especially my youngest growing confident and being able to stand up for herself. This course has really benefited both mother and children a lot."
