About Jenny Ng
Conscious parenting is a new paradigm shift in the way we look at our roles as parents. It's turning the spot light away from fixing the child and managing the child, obsession with all things that have to do with the child and the child centric approach and really focusing on the evolution of the parent. It about fully understanding that unless the parent has raised themselves to a certain level of emotional integration and maturity, they will really not be able to do true service to the child's spirit."

My Anecdote as a Conscious Parent
My daughter, Ally, she is now 10 years old, she is an emotionally sensitive child. One day, she was crying while sharing how lonely she was in school at the start of a new school year. No one was playing with her during recess time, no one was playing the games she liked to play, and there was no place she could go to to let out of her down feeling, and every corner in the school is crowded.
I could feel her pain, indeed, it could be very hurtful to find out how you might be emotionally isolated when you were having difficulty socialising with people around you during new school year transition.
I told Ally that crying is a magical thing we can do, it’s a form of releasing pain. After crying she could gain strengths in her to restart everything again. She cried even more when she was given permission to do so.
That night, before she slept, she asked me not to grow old too fast, as she still has so many things she wants to learn from me.
