Organised by Focus on the Family Singapore, the Parent-Coach Dialogues goes beyond being a workshop that dispenses parenting notes. Each session is designed to encourage stimulating conversation between all parents in attendance, facilitators included, and is a great source of practical tips and tools.
At each of the three dialogues, you can engage with parents with children 7-9 years and gain a better understanding of your parenting style and how it applies to your kids.
