From dealing with tantrums to handling bullies, working with children is stressful without the proper tools.
Foong Kwin Tan discusses her experience with children in her book, Cool Stuff Your Parents Never Told You About Parenting. Tan offers tips based on her experiences working as a curriculum director, starting a Montessori program, and educating parents and children for more than a decade.
Tan provides parents and teachers with a one-stop shop of information regarding children aged 0 to 8.
Her book includes suggestions on dealing with a wide variety of contemporary issues like selecting good-quality early education programs and dealing with overexposure to technology.
“Cool Stuff Your Parents Never Told You About Parenting provides parents with in-depth understanding on how and why children learn, think and behave so differently from us, so parents can help children develop the necessary skills required to meet the demands of the 21st century,” Tan said.
Drawing on her experience as both an educator and a mother, Tan offers examples for anyone working with children. In this way, she makes parenting and teaching more fulfilling and focused on bringing out the best in the next generation.
