When news of Michael Jackson’s death was broadcast, I could not believe what I heard. I know that name, Michael Jackson. He is the black guy whose records my brother had brought home when we are teenagers. At that time, our parents were confused and concerned over this newfound obsession with western music, song and dance. We were teenagers, my siblings and I; we understood the message in the music like Bad, Thriller and Heal The World. What I thought we were most connected to was neither his dancing nor singing; it was his music videos and concert performances.

Follow The Child And Become A Parent-Coach
On average, it costs more than S$300,000 to keep a child at school for the first 18 years. If you think you can save that amount of money and still be able to keep some for your retirement, then I wish you well. But for many of us, this is a great feat.
If you never thought you could teach your child at home, think again. Nobody teaches us about parenting. We just become parents because we have kids to care for and love. Aside from our education background, we make no excuses when it comes to giving the best education for our children.
So before we start looking out for answers, why don't we start to adopt long term strategies to be our children's role model. You may not be a teacher, but throughout the growing years of your child, you have been a great coach to your kids. You taught them how to eat, speak and learn without you consciously doing it. Smart parents raise smarter kids. So before your start doubting yourself, hold you hand to your heart and say it out loud "I am a great parent-coach. I am good to my child, my family and myself. I am a great parent-coach because I raise my kid with my bare hands. ..."
