… a parenting journey inside the 21st century …
Parenting is a lifelong journey and a collection of experiences we learn as we nurture children. Good parenting will surely facilitate their growth, health, and general well-being. It will also empower them with self-esteem and the confidence to hustle with 21st century challenges. The opposite is true when children are poorly parented.
At Parenting Alpha, we describe our own journey, one dotted with technology, globalization, diversity, competitiveness & emerging social-economic challenges! Hopefully, 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.
