Figuring out your parent-child dynamics is complicated enough with one child. But what if you have two (or more) children, and they happen to have very different personalities? Developmental psychologist Lydia Lim says that the key is taking time to distil and understand each party’s personality driven responses and behaviours, and then react accordingly. They may be siblings, but they are still individuals at the core. This was the reason she co-founded Connected, a digital resource that helps parents understand, in layman’s terms, the psychology behind the personality traits of their childre ..read more

As a ‘kiasu’ mum-to-be, I researched every aspect of baby care while pregnant. One thing that struck me was how breast milk is the best food for babies. Breast milk has all the nutrients a baby needs, in all the right amounts. It protects babies from many infections. It is always at the right temperature, and easily accessible whenever Baby needs it. So I was determined to breastfeed my baby, no matter what. How hard could it be? Breastfeeding is a natural process, right? But my baby, an angel when asleep, was a demon at the breast. In the early days of first-time motherhood, I was constantly ..read more

“Wow, your daughter takes the public bus home all by herself? But she’s only in Primary One!” exclaims one mum. On the inside, she doubts if her own six-year-old is or mature enough for that. Yet just like in the hit Japanese reality series Old Enough, they almost always are. In Singapore, preparations for formal education commence as early as three years in advance. Many parents move to live closer to the school of their choice to qualify for priority admission. Others start their parent volunteer journey a year before their child enters school to be eligible for Phrase 2B. While I did neithe ..read more
