Join us for this workshop as we explore how parenting with agility can help us navigate changing needs of our families and relationships in today’s modern society.  

Parents are faced with a myriad of challenges to support a child’s mental, physical, social, financial, academic and career development.

To successfully navigate this multidimensional set of responsibilities, we adopt a variety of roles such as protector, provider, coach, cheerleader, task master and teacher.  Admittedly, as parents, we can feel well-equipped on some days, yet terribly under-prepared at other times.

As children grow into teenagers and young adults, admitting we don’t have all the answers is confronting and uncomfortable. Parents may find themselves exhausted, confused or even feel defeated by a sense of hopelessness, ill-equipped to deal with inconsistent responses, unexpected behaviours and complex relationships.

While we may not be able to problem-solve for every possible scenario, developing parental agility allows us to navigate this journey more constructively, without missing opportunities for human growth and transformation to flourish as a family.

In our 90-minute mindfulness based session, we will explore how, as parents we can:

  • Develop the skill of acceptance and understand our role in nurturing a confident child

  • Shift from tolerating differences to cultivate non-judgement, be curious about divergent thinking and behaviour

  • Create a psychologically safe home environment for lifelong learning and unlocking potential 

This virtual session will be interactive and offer space for reflection and discussion, so we can support and learn from each other, as a parent community in Singapore and across the globe.
