… a parenting journey inside the 21st century …
Parenting is a lifelong journey and a collection of experiences we learn along the way. When done correctly, this journey facilitates healthy growth and well-being of children. It also empowers them with confidence and self-esteem to face the uncertainties of life challenges today. The opposite is true when they lack empowerment and guidance.
At Parenting Alpha, we describe our own journey, one dotted with technology, globalization, cultural diversity, competitiveness & diverse social-economic realities! Hopefully, ours is not ‘very’ different from yours’, and even better, we can learn a thing or two from each other. Our collective input will definitely simplify our parenting choices and decisions.
