This course is for parents who are


of yelling, threatening or punishing their strong-willed and sensitive children when trying to get them to cooperate.

to build strong relationships with their children from young, and raise empathetic, emotionally intelligent problem solvers. 

What if I tell you that... 


Equip yourself with parenting knowledge that is backed by decades of neuroscience and  behavioural-science research

Gain the confidence to handle your child's tricky behaviors and emotional outbursts

Learn strategies on how to manage your emotions

Start empowering yourself and be an informed and confident parent


Every interaction with your child is a chance to coach and teach him.

 Imagine how much your child can learn if you turn tantrums and power struggles into opportunities for him to learn valuable life skills.  

What if you know the steps to communicating effectively your child?  

Then you can raise emotionally intelligent kids and connect deeply with them!


We are all wonderful parents, until our children start pushing our buttons.  You just can't stop yelling at your children who drive you up the wall. You get mad at them, you get mad at yourself, you feel frustrated and guilty EVERY SINGLE DAY.  

What if you can navigate your parenthood journey with calmness and patience?  

What if you know exactly why your child "misbehaves" and you are able to nip the problem in the bud?

  You can then model self-control and empathy to build a trusting relationship with your child!

"We are now happy as a family because we are parenting on the same page."

 "We are able to remind one another when we act son's teacher commented that he is emotionally secured compared to his peers. Hearing that makes me feel very assured, we must be doing something right."

Daddy Stanley and Mummy Antoinette

"I used to be a hot tempered person"

I used to be a hot tempered person. I get triggered rather easily. After the course, I learnt to stop shouting, and my thoughts, words and decisions have positively impacted my family – there is less tension, and my home is more harmonious. It’s been months since I stopped yelling at my daughter!

Can’t be more grateful to you, Jacinth. Thanks for imparting these valuable skills to us, you have made our lives so much easier!"

Daddy Francis

"There is practically zero yelling!"

I am soo SOOOOO thankful that I took your course!!! It really put me in good stead to handle my 2 year old! These days there is practically zero yelling. I have a mostly peaceful house with a high energy toddler running around. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

"My husband, and even my helper, started to use some of the words you taught..."

"Learning about the brain development really helped to shift my mindset immediately and somehow I found it so much easier to keep calm when my child was dealing with big emotions.

The practical examples and sharing of how to resolve situations within the community was very helpful, for ideas on practical steps to take, as well as knowing that I'm not the only one going through this struggle.

The greatest affirmation is when my husband and even my helper, started to use some of the words you taught after hearing from me (e.g. for my helper, "gentle hands" with my 15 month old and role playing how to do it with her)." 

Mummy Qiao Mei

"When I am calm, its easier to help my grandson regulate his emotions."

"I am now better able to understand my grandson's behaviors, and I try to understand myself... I used to yell when my grandson throws tantrums, now I know how to pause."

- Nor Anne
Grandmother of toddler boy

"...the strategies are useful in my line of work as an occupational therapist..."

"As an occupational therapist working with children & family, I find the strategies useful for me in my work. I share the strategies and tips with my friends and families that I work with, and they found them useful too. Strongly encourage all families to join this good course! :)

... very concise, easy to understand and digestible. I can easily remember the strategies with the acronyms, and real life case studies shared. The weekly live calls are also great reinforcements and summary of the week's lessons, and I enjoyed the interaction with Jacinth & fellow parents very much."

"Change is tough but it can happen."

"If you are thinking if the course is for you, take the first step to believe in yourself, change is tough but it can happen.

I've seen that in my own parents, especially my dad and my mom I mean given their ages, they're still able to make small changes and that's applaudable! The community and Jacinth's dedication in answering our questions is something invaluable and I hope we can build the next generation of happy kids, happy caregivers." 

Mummy Lael

"Jacinth has distilled the lessons into essence for us..."

"I am really thankful for the course. I haven’t start yelling at my children and I do not want to. I signed up with the intention to be an educated parent in parenting. Jacinth has distilled the lessons into essence for us so that we do not have to go through it the hard way like her (reading various books & journals).

That day, my 2yo boy refused his porridge and wanted my father-in-law to switch on the TV. He started to throw tantrums and my father-in-law was at a loss. I used the words that Jacinth taught, validated my son’s feelings, and set boundaries.

And for a twinkle moment, he stopped crying and looked at me as if there was an instant connection there (I swear). ... he eventually cooperated and had his porridge!"

Mummy Mong Ling

"The other parents were watching and amazed that my toddler has no meltdowns (when leaving the playground)!"

Mummy Allyna

"I am now better at empathising with my toddler during her meltdowns."

 "I am now getting better at empathising with my toddler during her meltdowns, and have found better ways to cope with it.

We couldn't have done it without your help, and  I am glad to have found your Instagram page and your course, and I will definitely continue as a Sprout member!"

Mummy Pei Ying

"My children are more cooperative when I needed them to complete certain tasks."

After attending the course, I am more aware and mindful about my own triggers, knowing that it is okay for children to cry and let out their emotions because they feel safe with me around.

As time goes by, I feel that my relationship with my children gets closer and also they are more cooperative when I needed them to do or complete certain tasks.

"As children develop, their brains "mirror" their parent's brain. In other words, the parent's own growth and development, or lack of those, impact the child's brain.

As parents become more aware and emotionally healthy, their children reap the rewards and move toward health as well."
— Daniel J. Siegel

If you are still on the fence, hear directly from the parents who have commmited to improve their parenting skills:

Meet your teacher!

Hi! I'm Jacinth.

Founder, Our Little Play Nest and Our Little Play Academy

I am a parenting coach, ex-secondary school teacher, textbook co-author, and a mom to two kids (aged 7yo and 5yo). I am also  the founder of Our Little Play Nest and Our Little Play Academy.

Marrying my decade-long of teaching knowledge and parenting experiences, I empower parents to communicate and connect meaningfully with their children through research-backed, positive parenting strategies. I share bite-sized, parenting tips with parents via emails, blog posts, Instagram, Facebook, in-person workshops, online course From Yelling to Connecting and parenting membership Sprout.

In addition, in my Math program Connect The Dots, I equip parents with research-backed strategies to cultivate their children's interest in Math through daily conversations and fun activities.

I have collaborated and conducted workshops for DBS, Kids Clinic, Autodesk, Finexis, Fragomen, NTU, Rochester Mall etc and have been featured in Straits Times Singapore, Lian He Zao Bao and Sg Tatler.

My story: I was an ex-yeller.

5 years ago when I became a mom, I was mostly depressed in the first two years. I struggled because I felt so lost.

Daryl was a difficult toddler. He was strong-willed (still is!) and I had almost zero control over his behaviors.

I yelled and threatened because I didn’t know how else to manage his defiance and meltdowns. Until I decided that I need to change or I might just go into depression.

I poured over books, attended courses and workshops, and went through a positive parenting transformation...

...Today I am a much happier, calmer and confident mother, and I am thoroughly enjoying motherhood! I can't remember the last time I yelled at my kids in a non-emergency situation.

When I focus on connecting with my kids, it is so much easier to gain cooperation from them without having to scream, shame, blame or punish them! As I role model patience and calmness, my children mirror me and learn to regulate their emotions - which is an important skill to have.

Don't get me wrong, my kids still argue and have meltdowns - but I now know how to manage them with my toolkit of strategies and tips. I dare say that the whole family is happier, has less tension, and is more harmonious.

Hear from my students on how their lives were transformed...

 "After attending the course, I find myself able to understand my child better and why she is reacting negatively when we try to correct her behaviour. I learned to be more conscious of myself and was able to stay calm before communicating with my child. What was especially useful for me was using the correct words to communicate with my child which Jacinth taught in the course. I highly recommend parents to attend the course together to align their parenting styles and build a happier family." 

Mummy Adeline

"My husband used to yell and always want to stop our child from crying. I tried to share with him before but it didn’t help. Over the past month, I’ve been practising it consciously everyday and I noticed he is using the words that I use as well! I guess he sees that there’s results and he’s picking it up without me having to enforce it on him. This is probably the best way to get people onboard. "

Mummy See Kee

"Hi Jacinth, u asked, what is the greatest achievement in 2020. I would say having u being the pillar to our parenting journey. Not only u changed my life you have also changed my husband. He used get angry with Jovan when he misbehaved and started yelling. But after I insisted that he must attend the course with me, he changed. He became more patient and apply most of the things u taught (ABC). This really surprised me. Just want to say a big thank u for being with us in this parenting journey."

Mummy Joyce

I want to stop yelling and start connecting with my child!

"My wife forced me to watch the videos."

(You have to listen to this audio call I had with Daddy Habib, he shares how he managed his anger and anxiety to connect with his children)

Habib: You know, the biggest change which I encountered in myself is I started apologizing to my kids. You know, when you learn to apologize to your kids, that’s when you realise, what a kid goes through. It really changes, it transforms the whole relationship between the parent and the child.

Hidayath: Honestly, my husband doesn’t say or apologise very easily.
Habib: I don’t apologise easily to people.

Jacinth: “How did you get your husband to learn positive parenting?”

Husband: Honestly, my wife forced me to do it. (laughs)
[continues in video…]

"I must say it has been a life changing experience for the past 1 year! Continuously learning to become a better person to parent and supervise at work. The methods and strategies you have shared were very useful and has helped me to keep calm and be curious and not furious and using your 3 step positive discipline communication roadmap to coach the kids and colleagues too! LOL "
Mummy Gerk Sin
"Everyday I try to remind myself that all the tricky behaviour is actually a signal that kids need help. So I rarely yell at my kids nowadays. Even my hubby also said that I look more calm now.
I don’t know what to say apart from ‘thank you’. THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH! I am glad that I know you through IG."
Mummy Eunice
"I was at my wits end as my son was melting down almost daily and turning aggressive, and I was losing control... Today we still have good days and not so good ones but things have improved tremendously.

Your strength lies in your ability to make the content very digestible, relevant and practical. Please keep it up and I'm excited to continue to learn from you!"
Mummy JM
"Your course teaches me and my husband a lot on how to become a better parents. I can see there is a lot of changes in us. We been practicing become a calm and more connecting to our kids and surprisingly less drama now." 
Mummy Yen Lyn
My husband and I learnt alot from your course,  and it even helped in our marriage! There was this module about keeping calm, anger management, he reflected after listening the module, and told me it served as a huge reminder to him in our marriage that he should always try to keep calm during our disagreements,  and try his best to manage his anger by using your tips! 
Mummy Su Yin
"The biggest transformation for myself and my husband is that we did not use the cane as disciplinary action since I have started the course. We learned to calm ourselves down during triggered, changed the choice of words to use during their tantrums and meltdowns.  

 Once we have changed our way in dealing their emotions, both of my children cool themselves down much faster, and willing to talk to us why are they unhappy.   I am really glad that I am part of training programme. I am really thankful to you, Jacinth to share with us all these useful tips."
Mummy Pei Zhen
"I’ve read about positive parenting online but always find it difficult to apply the methods. 

Through this course I’ve learned to better connect to my child by attuning to their needs first before addressing the issue on hand. Jacinth’s 3 step positive discipline communication roadmap has helped tremendously!"
Mummy Angeline
" I see this connection that I have with my child that I absolutely enjoy and feel very proud of so much so that my husband is “jealous” cuz my girl will “listen” to me more and be more willing to cooperate with me! And particularly the look in the eyes of my child when I say I love you and give her that long hug and kiss is something that is so so precious!" 
Mummy Kelley
"When I was firm with the boundaries about playing with the helper's toothbrush, my girl actually said to me “mummy, I love you but yes, I am angry with you.” I was so surprised at her ability to understand such a complex and conflicting set of feelings at 2.5yo!! 

And then I asked if she will feel better when I hold her, and she nodded and was ok after a few minutes. I cannot explain how shocked I was at this turn of events."
Mummy Wei Wen
"I feel less alone when I read  and watch your content because you know exactly what we are facing as parents.

 Seeing the stressful situations described in words by you makes me feel validated and that someone truly understands our struggles and does not sugarcoat or skim over the surface without really addressing what's happening in real life. "
Mummy Chloe
"The course has made me a parent who is more aware and in control. My children have gone through tons of changes in the last year and routines have been constantly changing. I'm seeing the effects now that I'm back in SG and this course has helped me tremendously to deal with the repercussions.

I think the thing that stuck with me most is the bucket analogy and the iceberg theory..."
Mummy Aishah
"I yelled almost every day in the past. This course made me realise I was the one throwing the tantrums – the adult tantrums.

After this course, I learnt to calm myself first, and going through the modules have helped me to connect more with my 9 year old boy and 18 months old twins.

I learnt to recognise my mistakes and found that its never too late to reconcile with my eldest son. The course helps him to understand him better and able to meet his needs. 
Mummy Anni
"I feel that Jacinth has always been able to give relevant, practical advice that is specific and actionable - instead of the usual generic type - which is so important for new parents like me!"
Mummy Val
"The best thing that happened was that when my daughter, 4yo, told me, Mama, you know why I love you the most? Because you don’t scream at me.
Your course has helped me to identify my adult tantrum and helped me to understand that it’s normal for kids to throw tantrum and test boundaries. I am now more able to control myself as well."
Mummy Rosnauli
"Thank you for starting such a course for us parents. I was really at lowest because i really just cannot seem to understand why my daughter is behaving the way she is.

I blame myself for being such a lousy parent and for all the yelling that i have done to her which possibly have cause her to also yell and shout when she is angry, because the child models after what the parents does.

After joining your course and going through module 1, it really opens up my mind about parenting. You have shaped my thoughts and I think about how to decode my daugter's behaviors."
Mummy Liduan

Frequently Asked Questions

Class begins on 16 July 2021 Friday.

For 4 weeks, you will receive a new module each Friday.

The training videos are prerecorded and you can watch them at your own pace.

We will meet online every week on Thursdays 10pm Singapore Time (GMT +8), for our group LIVE coaching calls, starting on 22 July. Replays will be available.

For first time parents who are clueless and wants some direction as they parent their children with love and patience

For parents who are tired of yelling their kids everyday to gain their cooperation

For parents who want to keep calm and manage their tempers

For parents who are struggling with their children’s tantrums, meltdowns, violence behaviors, separation anxiety, power struggles, siblings rivalry

For parents who wants to stop using punishment to discipline their children

For educators who want to learn more about brain development and how to help students manage their own emotions

This is a self-paced course and you have life-time access to the videos. You can take your time to learn or binge-watch the videos! I have intentionally created concise, digestible videos because I know you have no time. I share only the best strategies and tips that work to make it worth your time.

That said, I strongly encourage you to commit for FOUR weeks because you will observe a transformation in your parenting after each module. I’m here to push you a little, help you to make learning a priority for this period of time. It is possible to complete the course if you schedule it in your calendar and MAKE TIME FOR IT. Because it will not only benefit you, it will benefit your spouse, your children and your grandchildren!

Today is the time you start investing in yourself.

On social media, I share the little golden nuggets about positive parenting but this course gives you a step-by-step guide through basics of positive parenting, brain research and a simple communication framework to help you gain cooperation with your children. I will be sharing several practical tips, tell you the exact words to say, the tone to use, how to troubleshoot when the strategy doesn’t work. I will teach you what to avoid, what not to say or do.

The most valuable part of this course is the live coaching and community support so that you get your individual questions addressed, and with like-minded parents, you don’t feel alone or judged!

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 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. A mummy shared “I have been reading various parenting books but I have achieved understanding and perspective so much easier with the course!”

In this course, I am going to get into the trenches with you, find out more about your background and give you personalised advice that tailors to your child’s temperaments and personality. This individualised support cannot be found in books.

The case studies discussed in the course is targetted and focused on parents with children between 18 months to 7 years old. That said, many of the strategies and tips I teach in this course applies to children across different ages (even adults as well! ).

You will learn how to help your children to be more empathetic, resilient, kind, resourceful and have self-control. These skills are what most of us hope to see in our children when they grow older.

My teaching experience with secondary school children (age 13-17 years) has given me valuable insights on how parental support during a child's early years makes a huge difference in both behavioural and academic outcomes of the child.

Yes! If it doesn’t work, I will never put it out. I have personally tried it, my students in my previous workshops 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 course!)

This course is not a quick-fix solution 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 your child may be experiencing a peak in his separation anxiety, for example.

This course promises you a perspective change, that you will yell less and connect more with your children. You will learn how to respond to problematic behaviors with compassion and limits, gain cooperation from your children, and enjoy every moment of parenting!

I sincerely hope that you will benefit from this course, so I am giving a 14 days money back guarantee! If you don’t find it working after 2 weeks into the course, let me know and I will offer you a full refund, upon showing evidence that you have attended the trainings and done the work. Its 100% risk free!
