Parents' Stories

The world our children are born into today is permanently evolving and changing. They will encounter many opportunities but also many challenges. Therefore, our children have to develop their resilience right from the start – and they will benefit from it for their whole lives.

I don't want to hold my child back or be overly protective of her. There will be a time when she has to deal with the world and I have realised that she is not entirely ready for it. Hence, I hope to prepare her as much as I can and I believe resilience is key. I want her to know that I am letting her experience the world to help shape her for her own good as I love her very much.

To succeed in life, I believe that children need more than just good grades and academic excellence. They need to develop strength in character especially resilience. This will help them bounce back when tough times come.. and we know they will.

Encouraging children to be resilient is important in order to prepare them for all the challenges and embrace the opportunities in life. In a world where change is constant, inevitable and unpredictable, being book smart alone is not enough. I believe that it is our responsibility as parents to ensure that our children will be able to persevere, adapt, be independent, agile and of course have compassion and humility.

I want to cultivate my kids to be resilient in order for them to be able to survive in such a competitive and unpredictable world. As parents we are here to guide them, encourage them, shape them to be resilient and hope they can be successful in whatever they choose to do in their future.

Amy Ann, Office Manager

Books and knowledge are no longer enough for our kids' generation to survive and succeed in life. They must develop their own character and personal values for their future. We have to start as early as possible to shape and guide them to be resilient and in doing so, it will give them a lifetime benefit.
