    TickiKids' Educational Guide 2019: Top preschools in Hong Kong

    Choosing the right preschool for your child can be a daunting and tad stressful task for most parents living in a big city like Hong Kong. However, it will be well worth the investment of time and energy in the long run. Receiving a good preschool education is vital during a child's formative years, as children in this tender age group absorb and achieve more than at any other stage in their school life. This crucial first step on the educational road fosters an interest, enthusiasm and confidence that has every chance of persisting through their subsequent time in school. At TickiKids, we pride ourselves on our understanding of the things that really matter to parents when it comes to childcare and preschool education. You want your child to be happy, confident, challenged and able to reach his/her potential physically, socially, emotionally and, sure enough, academically, before moving on to the next school. Fret not, because we have done the hard work for you. For our educational guide, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of the top preschools and daycare options in Hong Kong.

  • Best Cooking and Baking Classes for Kids in Hong Kong

    Best Cooking and Baking Classes for Kids in Hong Kong

    Baking, cooking and working in the kitchen are not something Hong Kong kids have access to in their everyday lives. Of course, knowing how to cook may be not considered by modern Hong Kong parents as important as being good at math, coding or languages. However, we shouldn’t forget that this skill makes a kid much more independent and can have positive influence on a child’s eating habits. Moreover, learning to cook and bake can be an exciting and enriching experience for your little ones, letting them explore the world of tastes and smells, giving them knowledge in math and science, challenging their problem-solving skills, making them work as a team and, of course, giving them that special pleasure of tasting the fruit of their labour! TickiKids has rounded up the very best baking and cooking classes for kids in Hong Kong.

  • Terrible Teens?

    Terrible Teens?

    When my delightful, well-behaved daughter hit her teen years, her defiant, impulsive and irrational behavior, left me and my husband zapped and lost. Each situation was a battle and each day was a war. We had no idea what had hit her. We were the same parents, doing what we had always been doing. What had gone wrong and more importantly, where we had gone wrong? One thing we were sure of was, this is not how we would like things to continue. It led me to do read and research on what psychologists had to say about the teenage brain right from the beginning of the psychology like G Stanley Hall to present-day thought leaders like Dr. Dan Siegel. When I started coaching teens and parents, this one question I have seen come up again and again from parents “My child was not like this. What happened?”

  • How to be a “Lazy” Parent

    How to be a “Lazy” Parent

    As they say, children don’t come up with instruction manuals. And what that means is we parents end up spending energy on musing, ‘Am I doing enough?’ This thought becomes even more accentuated when both the parents are working. In the process of getting rid of the guilt, we end up doing more for the child that is required. This, in the process, becomes counterproductive, and the child ends up being labelled by the society as an overprotected spoiled brat. And again, the parents take the brunt. So, after spending energy on worrying about not becoming a good parent, we end up being judged as so. Where to go … what to do?!

    Does Your Child Procrastinate?

  • Is Your Child a Smartphone Addict?

    Is Your Child a Smartphone Addict?

    I often hear mums concerned about the amount of time children spend on their phones playing games, and in the process not only do they lose track of the time, but it's also hard to pull them away from the game.  Whilst it is true for the mobile devices in general, in this article I will focus on the gaming part of the devices. I will give a glimpse of what goes on in the mind of a video gamer and why it’s challenging to pull them away from the game or indeed, pulling themselves away.

  • Public Speaking? Nah… Just Tell a Story!

    Public Speaking? Nah… Just Tell a Story!

    I dedicate this article to my favourite age group – the youth of today. Much has been said and written about this topic and yet it remains an enigma to most of us when it really shouldn’t be. It should be as easy as it is for a 4-year-old to tell a story.Recently I was invited to mentor a group of kids to improve their public speaking skills. These kids were going to present their project to a group of judges and the best idea was to win an award to fund their idea. I first asked them to tell me about their project. As they told me about why they chose the project, the passion, enthusiasm, and energy in their gestures and body language was apparent. Then I asked them to present their idea to me as they would to the judges.

  • Are You Burning Bridges With Your Child?

    Are You Burning Bridges With Your Child?

    “My 13-year-old daughter is just so unenthusiastic and passive for just about everything. I have to constantly remind her of small things like putting her shoes away to packing her bags. She is intelligent, but she needs to be reminded to do her homework and prepare for her assessments. When she does it, she does it well…but my pain is the reminders. I feel like a broken record player…you know one that keeps playing the same track again and again!! Arghhh!!! Other children her age are so active and self-motivated”, ranted my client. Fatigue and frustration were apparent in her voice, face and body language.This is a story of not just one parent but of so many of us. As a Mom and Teen Coach, I have had the privilege of listening to both sides of the story on the same issues.
