Date: 24th Jan 2019

Speaker: Joseph Wong


About the talk

Our children need all the help they can get to be better prepared. The solution lies with how productively parents and teachers use the time they spend with children. By using everyday situations and intelligently (and creatively) spotting opportunities – even the most innocuous – and turning them into life lessons, parents can unlock the creativity and critical thinking in their children without making them look like “more lessons”.
