The Secrets to Raising a Smarter Child

There is a high chance that ever since your kids were babies, you’ve tried to surround them with positive learning experiences. Now that they’re older, in school with lots of homework - free time appears to be a scarce commodity! Therefore, it only makes sense that you’d like some of that “down time” to be spent in brain-enriching and family-bonding activities. The trick is to find activities that can boost their brain capacity while having fun.


Join us this school holidays to uncover the effective ways to keep your child’s brain (and maybe yours!) in tip-top shape.

Who should attend: Parents who wish to raise smarter kids

Date: 1 June 2019 

Time: 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm ​

​​She is a former Vice-President and current advisor for the National Association for Gifted Children, Malaysia (NAGCM).

This book provides parents with the tools to make the best of their child’s natural abilities and harness dormant talents. After reading this book, there will be no secrets (and no excuses!) to raising a smarter and happier child. From pre-pregnancy till your child is 10, this is a comprehensive guide on parenting presented in an easy to read, interactive manner.


Future-proof Your Kids, Today

For years, academic achievement has always been the bedrock for a successful start to adult working life. Today, in the age of AI, that is a necessary but insufficient condition. All manners of human work that are repetitive and driven by heuristics will be replaced by non-human systems that do not require rest, cost less and do not complain. Research into skills that would be required by young adults for the future shows that even complex human work is increasingly being taken over by machines.

How do we prepare young minds for this kind of future? How can they thrive in a world that sees disruptive changes taking place at breakneck speed? How can they develop a mindset that allows them to always grow, try new things, embrace failure and build towards performance?

In this seminar, GRIT Trainer Chuck shares core principles that fellow parents should adopt in developing their children to go beyond grades.


Learn what you, as parents, should do today for your kids, because it'll be too late tomorrow.

This seminar is a collaboration between The GRIT Academy & Joyous Learning.

Who should attend: Parents who wish to future-proof their kids

Date: 1 June 2019 

Time: 3.15 pm to 4.30 pm ​
