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
