Hong Kong has started its fifth wave more than a month ago and parents have been in survival mode all around. Home schooling is one issue but the biggest issue is kids being stuck at home. Playgrounds are closed and the government is urging parents to stay home with their kids. Some parents are signing up for zoom classes for their kids in hopes to occupy their time while the parents themselves are working from home.
We have been invited to do a Facebook Live session with HKMomtrepreneur on Friday March 4th at 10 PM HKT to talk about the challenges parents are facing and share some tips and tricks to help them during this time. Below are some concepts to guide parents and to make it even easier we have created a list of things for parent-child play or for the kids to play by themselves. It’s a no frill and by all means, not a complete list but we hope this is a good start to give parents some ideas.Read More

However, this dependence comes at a great cost not just to our environment but also to our child’s health. With many new cloth diapering systems available in the market today, adopting cloth diapers is easier than ever.
We have invited a cloth diaper expert, Victoria Chuard (Founder of Just Peachy), to show us all there is to know about cloth diapering. From how they work to selecting the right one for you and your family, plus tips and tricks to make the two-year journey of diapering simple and easy.Read More
As parents, we all know that music is important for children such as being told to listen to music when the baby is in the womb to using music to put them to sleep. However, a lot of parents do not really know the benefits of how music is the foundation of future learning for children.
