Successful Parenting Seminar 2012 organised by MindChamps was held at NUS Shaw Foundation Alumni House on 6 October 2012. Parents were greeted by friendly staff from MindChamps and breakfast was catered for all before the seminar. The cosy auditorium was soon filled with eager parents listening to what the three speakers have planned for them.
The first speaker was Dr Sandy Chua, a general dental surgeon from Healthway Dental Group. She shared about the importance of dental care for babies and pre-schoolers. She also addressed important issues such as the effects of prolong usage of pacifier as well as the impact of diet on children’s oral health.
The second speaker was Vanessa McNamara, a professional dietitian who discussed the importance of having a balanced diet for both children and parents. She also shared about some of the essential nutrients needed for children.
The third speaker was Jason Ng, an Education Success Coach from MindChamps. He challenged the parents to cultivate good learning and studying habits with their children. He also advised parents to understand their children’s learning styles so as to prepare them to be ready for primary school.
Each speaker ended their sharing with a Q&A session for parents to clarify their doubts.
At the end of the seminar, parents were given a goodie bag worth $60. Each goodie bag contained:
- Abbott Discount Vouchers
- Gain IQ kid Multiple Intelligence Activity Book
- Gain IQ kid pre-school milk for 3 years onwards (400g)
- MindChamps Bookmarks
- MindChamps Notebook

Many parents feedback that they have learned many valuable parenting tips from the seminar and look forward to future parenting seminars.
