"Once we build the relationship with them, it will be easier in the teen years!"- Mummy Michelle

Thank you for setting up this platform as the tweens years are like treading new ground, so it’s good to have a community to learn together.  Once we build the relationship with them, it will be easier in the teen years!

"I want to improve my connection with my eldest child, whom I've made many parenting mistakes with" - Daddy T

Our 3-stage game plan:

We will turn these parenting challenges into teachable moments AND build trusting relationships with our tweens!

1. BECAUSE

You will learn your WHY, so you can understand your child and your inner child.

When you are equipped with knowledge about your child's development, you can navigate the tweenager years with empathy and confidence.

2. BELONGED

You will learn how to speak the tween language so you can be on the same team as your tween.

 When you build a trusting relationship, your child will run to you instead of away from you when they make a grave mistake or feel defeated.

3. BECOME

You will learn and apply actionable, research-backed strategies, facilitate conversations and be your child's emotion coach.

 These strategies will help your tweens develop skills such as
- emotion regulation
- problem solving
- stress management
- decision making
 
so they can become resilient, responsible and reflective teens.

You can step OUT of daily power struggles with your tween...
you can ENJOY growing with your tween!

Imagine this: the next time your tween acts out, you know exactly why they are behaving this way, and you are equipped with the self-regulation skills and scripts so you can respond to them with calm and compassion.

Questions? I've got the answers!

As a mother myself, I know the time constraints we face. That is why I choose to prioritise what is important to me. My relationships with my children are of utmost importance and I make sure I put in effort to understand, support and nurture their physical and mental health.

I hope to encourage you, amidst your busy schedules, to invest in your family. If something is important to you, make time for it.

Make time to learn and support your child so you can lay a strong foundation in the tween years. These years form the bridge between childhood and adolescence, and will shape their beliefs, values and behaviours.

If you don't do the work now, it is going to be much harder when they become teens.

As your coach and cheerleader, I've made learning simple for you! I intentionally create concise, digestible and actionable audio classes so you can learn while commuting, doing chores, or exercising. I share the best strategies and tips that make your time worthwhile.

The Be.Tween Community is for parents with children aged 7 to 12.

 This is NOT for kiasu parents who want their children to be ahead of the race.

 This is for parents who
 
- want their children to run the race at their own pace, and be present to support their tweens emotionally and mentally throughout the race.  

- prioritise the mental health of their tweens,

- who want to connect with them to better meet their needs, and willing to journey with them through the stresses of studies and friendships, and at the same time, build strong relationships with their tweens that can withstand the turbulence of adolescence. (The work starts now!)

Yes, you will get immediate access to ALL past and new resources as long as you are a member in good standing.

- Four Foundational Modules: Tween Talk (Including workbook and transcripts)

- All Audio Classes e.g. Motivation and Homework audio class (with homework planner, DIY report card and spelling templates), Managing Anger for Tweens, Motivating your child in Mother Tongue etc.

- Learn to Learn Series (e.g Thinking Aloud, Memory Retention Strategies, Exam Planning, Pomodoro Method etc)

- Replays of our Q&As (e.g. Disciplining your child with former discipline mistress, Exam Techniques with former EL Head of Department, Guide your child in learning Chinese by experienced educators etc)


YES! In fact, I encourage you to read more parenting books!

 That said, many parents have told me that they don’t know HOW to apply what they've read. They tried the strategies but they don’t seem to work. That’s because every child is different, every family is different so the one-size-fits-all approach may not work.  

One valuable part of this learning community is the people. You can get feedback and support from other like-minded parents when the strategies don't seem to work, and you can hear from other parents who experience similar challenges.

Mummy Serene in my program told me: "Just knowing that I am not alone has helped me reframe my thoughts and given me new confidence to try again!"  

In the Be.Tween learning community, I am going to get into the trenches with you, answer your questions in the private Facebook community and direct resources to help you. This individualised support cannot be found in books.

Yes! If they don't work, I will never put it out. These strategies are all backed by research and child development theories.  I have personally tried it, other parents in my course and memberships have tried it and we’ve seen transformations in our children.

However, you have to invest your time in learning, intentionally applying the tips, and work on self-regulation (which I’ll share a lot in this learning community!)    

The classes are not quick-fixes because we are dealing with humans, not machines. Our children go through developmental changes at different phases of their growth, some tools may work today but not the following week because they are always growing!  

This learning community promises you a perspective change, that you will listen not lecture, partner not punish your tween.

You will learn how to respond to "defiant" and other tricky behaviours with compassion and limits, raise emotionally intelligent, resilient and confident problem solvers. 

I understand that life gets in the way sometimes, that is why even if you can't make it LIVE, you can still submit your questions, and listen to the responses in the video and audio replays. 

You will get the same content for all three plans, with new resources available each month. The 12-month is the most value for money as compared to the 3-month and 6-month plans: you get to enjoy 20% off (per month) compared to the 3-month plan!

Note that the plans will automatically renew every 3 months, 6 months and 12 months respectively.

Yes, definitely! Just email my team [email protected] and we will help you with the upgrade.

Yes you can. There will be no refunds for early cancellation, but you will still enjoy your membership benefits till the next renewal date, after which the membership will expire.

This applies to all membership plans.  Also note that even though you can rejoin the membership at a later date when it re-opens for enrolment, there will most likely be a price increase.

As long as you remain a member of good standing, your rate will be locked-in forever.  The membership will automatically renew if you do not cancel.

The team who will be supporting you!
