Course Objectives
  • Strengthen the understanding of talent development 

  • Examine their perceptions of parenting / family issues 

  • Rewire the mindset towards parenting

  • Address to child’s uniqueness instead of narrowing the issues as problems/troubles

  • Acquire skills to enhance awareness and generate mindful energy to tackle issues with child and in family

Course Outline

Parents are guided to examine and articulate how their perceptions affect the parent-child relationship and make parenting ineffective. 

With the practice of mindfulness in daily life (e.g., communication, eating, playing, working etc), parents can gradually develop clarity and generate mindful energy to understand their child(ren), embrace feelings and vulnerabilities with enhanced awareness within self and their loved ones. Practices acquired can be applied in various daily situations that support the continuous and whole-person development of every member in the family.


Session 1: What is talent development? What and how to nourish?
Session 2: Uniqueness VS disruptive behavior: How to tackle?
Session 3: Do I support / spoil my kid? How to praise?
Session 4: Self-efficacy VS comparison 
Session 5: Peer relationship & empathy: Strike the balance?
Session 6: Ready for new beginning



Target Participants / Prerequisite
Parents who have K3-P2 children are welcome.

Medium of Instruction



  • 加強對才華發展的認識 

  • 檢視自己對家長管教/家庭議題的想法 

  • 重新對家長管教建立新思維 

  • 尊重孩子的獨特性而非只視為問題




透過日常的正念練習(如溝通、進食、玩耍、工作等) ,家長能逐漸產生正念及澄明的能量,由心而發去覺察自己與所愛的人,諒解孩子,擁抱他們的情感與脆弱。家長所學的正念練習能應用於生活各層面,具延展性地支持家中各成員的全人發展。
