Looking for a parenting workshop in Kuala Lumpur?

*What Every 21st Century Parent 🤷🏻‍♀ Needs to Know🤷🏻‍♂! *
👪Parenting in the 21st Century can be confusing! As parents try their best to play the crucial role of shaping our next generation – the pillar of hope of our nation – they are bombarded👊🏻 with horror stories of teen suicides, school violence, cyberbullying, sexual abuse, and underage pregnancies and ask questions like,
“How can I keep these problems from affecting my family?”
“Where can I go for help?”
“What if my children won’t listen?”
Good Enough Parenting™ is the answer! Based on extensive clinical experience, the newest research, and in collaboration with the UK’s University of Stirling, Good Enough Parenting™ (GEP) is an evidence-informed parenting program that has already transformed the lives of thousands of families 👪👨‍👩‍👧👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👦‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 around the world.
And will be conducted by John and Karen Louis, the founders of Good Enough Parenting, as well as the I, Choose Us Couples’ Workshop. The Louis are marriage and family therapists, with John being certified worldwide as a Schema Therapist, trained in Manhattan. Louis has trained parenting facilitators from more than 50 countries and conducted conferences, seminars, and workshops on marriage and parenting on almost every continent.

Their books, Good Enough Parenting and I Choose Us, have been translated into ten languages, have sold more than 50,000 copies, and are available on Amazon.

I got a notification from my church regarding this workshop, and of course, my wife and me signing up this program immediately without any second thought. Being a first-time parent, there are many things that I need to learn, be it how to build a relationship with my wife, or become a good parent for my son, etc. The list seems goes on, but the main concern as a parent, will my children grow in a healthy environment? Am I giving enough to him?

The balance that I want to strike as a parent is that he would not be too spoiled, but at the same time not too harsh as well. I have tons of questions regarding parenting, which is why I think this session will help me not only answer most of my questions, but the main thing is that how to raise my son in a healthy environment so that he can grow and nurture to be an awesome kid. I firmly believe having an outstanding kid is every parent’s dreams.

    […] I grew up in typical chinese family, parents busy working to meet the end needs. As of now, I have difficulties on recalling good memories with my parents. Those sweet memory seems faded away, and the only understanding that I get is my parents always busy to work. I do have siblings, but due to high different age gap, we seldom playing things in “eye level” (I will elaborate more in future). So my parenting style obviously copying most of what I had been through in my childhood. I do realise that the needs of building strong connection to children is a responsibility. Parents are responsible to build connection with their children. Not only providing physical needs, but also emotional needs. Which is why I cultivate habits of consistent weekly spending time with my children. This is what I learnt after attending Good Enough Parenting Workshop. […]
