As we conclude the enriching and inspiring Happy Parenting Workshop organized by Uplift Singapore Team , we reflect on the profound insights shared by our esteemed speakers: Gavin ❤️ McCormack, Sri Madhusudan Sai, and myself, Jace Tan. Each of us brought unique perspectives and approaches to help parents evolve into the best versions of themselves, creating a nurturing environment for their children.

Gavin McCormack’s session on innovative educational strategies highlighted the importance of fostering curiosity and creativity in children. His montessori advice and engaging stories resonated deeply with our audience, emphasizing the role of parents in encouraging a child-first approach.

Sri Madhusudan Sai’s talk on spiritual parenting offered a refreshing outlook on raising children with mindfulness and compassion – every child is a blessing! His P-A-R-E-N-T-I-N-G acronym is relatable and easy to understand and provides a holistic approach to parenting that transcends conventional methods

My presentation focused on the personality aspects of parenting, providing insights into differences between children/ teens and their parents. Drawing from the largest psychometric study that I had done, this data-based insight leads to recognition of the differences. By understanding that our children are different from us, helps us manage our emotions, improve our IQ and EQ when it comes to parenting and how we can better support our children through their developmental stages, fostering stronger familial bonds.

The feedback from our learners has been overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing how these diverse perspectives have equipped them with practical tools and profound insights to implement in their daily lives. The workshop has not only empowered parents but also created a supportive community where experiences and ideas can be shared. Thank you Kong Kelly, Huimi Tan for your feedback.

Here are some further resources that can help you in your parenting journey.

In How to Raise an Adult, Julie Lythcott-Haims draws on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean to highlight the ways in which overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to overhelping, Lythcott-Haims offers practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success.

Relevant to parents of toddlers as well as of twentysomethings-and of special value to parents of teens-this book is a rallying cry for those who wish to ensure that the next generation can take charge of their own lives with competence and confidence.

“For parents who want to foster hearty self-reliance instead of hollow self-esteem, How to Raise an Adult is the right book at the right time.” -Daniel H. Pink, author of the New York Times bestsellers Drive and A Whole New Mind

In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth. 

Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.
