It is so heartening that you would like to start off the New Year by supporting the new parents to nurture their children with motivation and love.
Chapter Zero shared the topic “Raising a Confident Child” during the webinar. They shared about the circle of security (using attachment) as a basis for parents to form a secure haven and base for their child, so that their child will also have the security and confidence to explore the world on their own and gradually grow in confidence and resilience.

[Parent Kit] Part 2: Home-Based Learning - Don’t Worry, Be Steady!
Starting from 8 Apr 2020, we will shift to Full Home-Based Learning (HBL) till 4 May 2020. It is an important stage in our fight against COVID-19 where we need to stay home, stay safe, and help our children stay curious.
Last week’s HBL has helped all of us to be better prepared. There will be issues and challenges as we move to Full HBL, but let’s work together to overcome them.
HBL cannot fully replace physical learning in school, but it will ensure that our children will be able to progress with learning while remaining safe.
We have come through challenges before, we can do it again. Let us partner to guide our children to tide through this and emerge stronger.
This issue of Parent Kit aims to help you understand what HBL is and how you can support your children during the period of Full HBL.
We hope you find the issue useful, especially for those of you who are also working from home.
