Are you looking for a tool to reach out to the parents in your community?


Parenting with Confidence
is a positive and fun parenting workshop that will provide the parents in your community with the essential tools to raise independent and intelligent children. Since its launch in 2003, more than 7,000 parents have benefited from the program.

During one of the sessions, I was asked to write down the positive things I feel towards my child. So I wrote them and decided to stick the note on my 10-year-old daughter's wardrobe. When she saw it, she was so touched. We weren’t doing well recently, the note actually helped mend our relationship. I am so happy I attended the workshop and learned how to better relate to my daughter!

About the Trainer

Cheryl Ng is an accredited parenting facilitator with Focus on the Family Singapore and Master Trainer for Parenting with Confidence. She dedicated the early part of her career to pursuing her childhood dream of teaching, touching the lives of numerous teenagers in junior colleges for almost 10 years, before switching her attention to bringing up her own children.

Today, she continues to indulge in her passion for young people as an adjunct lecturer at a polytechnic. Her belief in the strength of the family fuels her work in family life education. She upholds the interests of children and families in various ways, like volunteering with MICA as a minister-appointed steering committee member of the Parents Advisory Group for the Internet (2000 to 2005), and sitting on the Publication Consultative Panel and the Film Censorship Panel.

She has discussed her work on internet safety in public seminars and on radio talk shows, and was interviewed for television, magazines and newspapers. She and her family were also featured in a television educational docu-drama. By working with today's children, Cheryl hopes to leave a legacy of grace with tomorrow's leaders.
