                                                              “Communication is fundamental to a healthy relationship.”   


       I grew up in a family environment where any form of expression was a sign of disrespect. As I went through my childhood and adolescence, my curiosity towards harmonious family dynamics remained unanswered. After completing my Masters in Childhood Education and teaching in New York, I noticed how Westerners could freely communicate their emotions.  My exposure to Western and Asian family dynamics further strengthened when I worked in international school settings in England, Turkey, and Switzerland. 


       Settling down in Zurich, Switzerland, my husband and I created our unique family culture to nurture our son’s journey in maintaining a happy and well-rounded childhood experience. As he goes through his adolescent life, we continue to thrive on having a nurturing relationship with him. 


        It is definitely not easy to be parents nowadays since there is simply no one right formula to raise children. With the rapid innovations in technology and the strong impact of social media on children, it makes our role as parents even more challenging. However, one thing is an absolute truth . . . the fundamental key to a happy, confident child is sustaining a deep, positive connection​.
