4th Summer DanceFit Festival (23 to 27 June 2015)

Parenting Talk – The "Secret" to Effective Parenting, a talk as part of the 4th Summer DanceFit Festival by Mr Jim Lim (REAL Academy) (Wellness Presentation)

TALK: Parenting Talk - The "Secret" to Effective Parenting

In today’s fast-paced world, juggling between work, family and personal time can be an overwhelming challenge. Parents are finding it increasingly difficult to engage and connect with their children. Using the simple metaphor of kite flying, this seminar seeks to help parents discover the “secret” to enjoyable and effective parenting. Parents will also learn about understanding the uniqueness of your child, helping your child fly, dual parenting a Stunt Kite, growing the Relationship Bank, mentoring your child and inculcating resilience in your child. Jim’s sharing will be peppered with anecdotes and real-life examples from his Social Work experience. Much of the content in this seminar will be based on the best-selling book written by Jim, entitled “The Kite Story – Perspectives on Parenting & Mentoring.” The book is now in its second print and will be translated into Chinese.


Mr Jim Lim founded REAL Academy as the first Relationship Consultancy in Singapore. He has authored & published a book entitled “The Kite Story: Perspectives On Parenting & Mentoring” that was launched by NLB in Bishan Library on March 9th 2013. It has since became a bestseller and is now in its 2nd print. He is a guest speaker on Channel 5 “Talking Point”, News 93.8FM “Parenting Made Easy” with Susan Ng and Capital 95.8FM morning shows. Jim is one of the principal consultants in the documentary “Children In Crisis” currently aired on toggle.sg and sits on the SG 50 Jubilee Baby Gift Advisory Panel.
