Improving Children’s Literacy and Inspiring Parents

The well-being of a family is crucial for a well-developed society. Therefore, Family and Parenting Centre (FPC) from the Department of Psychology at HELP University, led by Ms. Sybella Ng, a psychologist and lecturer at HELP University, is collaborating with Malaysian Child Resource Institute (MCRI) to launch L.I.F.E. Program.  

L.I.F.E. Program stands for Literacy Impact and Family Education aims to improve literacy in children and equip parents with the ability to empower their children. Parenting workshops, Read Aloud programs and counselling sessions has been conducted to move towards achieving the goal.

There are few things as precious as a newborn baby, and parents want the very best for their child – from the food they put in their mouths to the diapers they put on their bottoms. Even with parents increasingly becoming a part of the digitised society, this has not stopped them from getting the best for their children. Thus, as e-commerce engagement continues to grow in Malaysia, shopping with convenience and accessibility is becoming increasingly engrained in how parents shop for their children’s necessities.
According to Nielsen’s 2015 Trends in the Global Baby Food and Diaper Markets, rapid urbanisation, growth of the middle class and rising rates of female participation in the work force have encouraged the adoption of convenience-focused lifestyles, making online shopping the go-to platform for parents. Coupled with increased smartphone and internet usage, there is a compelling proposition for parents to shop whenever and wherever they want, so much as to connect parents in the …

The rise of Zika virus is now another grave concern for everyone and according to WHO factsheet1protection against mosquito bites is a key measure in preventing mosquito-borne diseases.
