KidSTART Stories

 

KidSTART has taught my husband and I how to better understand parenting and to interact with our children well. We applied the parenting strategies learnt from KidSTART and it worked so well with our children. With the proper methods of bringing up and educating a child, it has made bonding with our children easier!” 

Hidayah, mother of three children

“Ever since I joined KidSTART, I learnt that we need to teach our children to be more patient. As a mother, I too need to have patience and talk to him more gently.
