Parenting

the Alpha cohort

… a parenting journey inside the 21st century.

Parenting is a collection of lifetime experiences that we learn and experiment with, as we nurture children. Good parenting will surely facilitate their growth, health, and well-being. It will also empower them with self-esteem and the confidence they need to hustle with evolving challenges in the 21st century. The opposite is true when children are poorly parented.

At Parenting Alpha, we describe our own journey, one dotted with technology, diversity, & emerging social-economic challenges! We believe you too are trekking your own journey, albeit differently. Still, we are confident that ours is not ‘very’ different from yours, and even better, we can learn a thing or two from each other. Our collective input should simplify our individual journeys.

Food for thought

Kids will follow your example. Not your advice. Don’t just tell them to: do more physical activity, eat healthier food, get outside more, do the right thing, be kind to others, read books. Make sure you are doing these things so your kids will follow. Lead by example.’

Jack Coulson


‘When parents are too hands-on, kids fail to learn self-reliance. Instead of hovering like a helicopter parent, try submarine parenting: give kids the freedom to explore and surface if there’s a distress signal.’
