Childhood Days

Have you ever heard of tiger moms who push their cubs into working hard from an early age so they can hunt for themselves later? Well if Tiger moms can be fierce like that so why shouldn't human moms be firm enough to raise kids who know how to lead a disciplined life?

We believe that childhood years are the prime years for instilling good habits because children develop their personalities during these formative stages. And what better way than demonstrating self-discipline ourselves first before showing our kids how it's done!

Good Habits Can Be Fun!

Making things fun makes them less monotonous, and therefore more enjoyable. Incorporate learning some regular tasks with games such as:
