Last post on this! We re not saying grades aren t important, or that we should shelter our kids from all stress. Stress is needed to build resilience, and helps kids feel empowered when they overcome challenges. As parents, we shouldn t wall off our kids from life and remove all forms of stress. But there IS a difference between stressed, distressed and depressed. Raising these issues with this year s campaign for @lifebeyondgrades because it s super important for us to be able to recognise distress signals, and be there to walk this journey with our kids. Just wanna say - DO be present for your kids, don t be judgmental or make them feel worthless, celebrate effort if they ve tried their best, and above all, DON T COMPARE! Every child is different, education is not a race   #lifebeyondgrades #sgmummies #sgkids

PSLE results are out tomorrow, and this campaign was created for you, those anxious parents and children who have done their best to get to this milestone. This #PledgeForOurYouth is especially for the kid who got slapped in front of her entire class for a score that disappointed her mother, for the boy whose mother caned him the whole year each time he got less than an A, for the child in the class who got screamed at for being  stupid and lazy  when he didn t get a score that pleased his parents. All true, and sadly familiar stories, to many of us with kids in school in Singapore. This is for those kids, who dread the school they ll be sent to if they don t get that high-enough score, who will have to face patronising relatives during CNY. Let s all stop, and consider that there are things far more important than a score on a piece of paper. This is especially for those kids who are so fearful tonight, that they think there may not be a tomorrow. Please don t let your child think that a bump in the road could be the end of the journey. Please let them know that a grade doesn t define them, that every child is different, and that there are many paths to success and happiness. Above all, let s not be competitive parents, education is not a race.  Some kids start out slower, but  catch up  later in life. Some develop strengths, passions and talents that don t appear until they ve begun their careers. Excelling when you re 12 years old actually has less impact than you can imagine - just ask successful people today, and their answer would almost always surprise you. Take courage. All the best tomorrow, don t forget to tell your young person that you love and support them, no matter what the outcome. If you fail an exam, you lose some marks, if they lose their self confidence, they will fail in life #lifebeyondgrades #pledgeforouryouth #sgkids #sgmoms #sgmummies @lifebeyondgrades

Congrats @itsjoshuanah and @rachelvanessatan - You re all grown up! Look at all these Mercury alumni @mercurysocial past and present gathered to celebrate    and I m simply in awe! So many have gone on to make us proud, some have carved out careers overseas, some are working their dream jobs, some have stayed over ten years with us, some have left and returned, many have become business owners. Seeing all these thriving folks and friendships long after their time with us ended, and I m so goddam proud, and humbled. I ve steered and navigated this ship for two decades, through some deep, dark and troubled waters, manned by the most passionate, capable crew I could ask for. I feel all the good vibes tonight. Thanks for bringing so many Mercurians back together for your special day, Josh and Rachel, you ll always have a special place in our hearts! So much love    #finahlly #nahbae #mercuryPR #mercurylive #19yearsandcounting #teamawesomeforever

Does my life look perfect? As a working mom, I really don t get to spend as much time with my boys as it appears. I have to choose quality time over quantity time, and that s why we travel. Behind the scenes (and the smiles), we all go through challenges and battles no one else sees. So be kind always - you never know what someone else is going through, just because they look strong on the outside, doesn t mean they aren t struggling on the inside. Anyway, slightly melancholic post, as my anxiety is mounting over Tyler starting P1 next year, his dyslexia, possible dyspraxia, his insecurity and fear of bullying - it s all taken a mental toll on me, while going through a busy work season and trying to put together something bigger than fashion week next year, working on a new campaign for @lifebeyondgrades , organising a charity campaign with @crib_society today, a fundraising trip with @operationhopefoundation working on getting a book for kids published with @dyslexiasg  and dealing with personal issues beyond my control. Sometimes we have to tell ourselves it s ok not to be ok, this too shall pass. Happy Thursday, folks (and no, I m really not on holiday anymore. It s just photos and happy memories on Instagram) Meantime, I ll focus on the silver lining - that I m creating a life of positivity and impact, I have a great team running with me and that business is thriving @mercurysocial   #staypositive #grateful

Rich or poor, we each get only 24 hours a day.  Daily, we make choices on how to spend our precious time that will impact our lives in future. Loving the message of #timefullness behind Danish brand @augustbergofficial reminding us to prioritise the pillars of life that means the most to us, choosing between Family, Work, Fitness, Friends and Rest. August Berg is currently offering engraving on your timepiece. The quote I ve chosen is  Take Time to Dream , to remind myself that in the hustle and bustle of life, it s my imagination and creativity that set me apart - as an entrepreneur, mother, wife, sister and friend. Lastly, the timepiece on my wrist also serves as a reminder to live a conscious life, and that time spent with children, is never time wasted   
.
Pleased to share that you can enjoy complimentary engraving (up to 25 characters) on the back of your watch, just quote my name TJIN in the promo code on check out for your free engraving, until tomorrow, 31 October. Enjoy! #augustberg #danishdesign #momlife #motherhood #sgmommies #sgkids

Goodnight world... hug your loved ones tight. 83% of mammals in the wild have already gone extinct, and scientists estimate it will take 3 million years to recover the damage of human over-exploitation of animal species. 99.9% of today s critically endangered species will be lost if no action is taken, and elephants only have a 30% chance of making it to 2100. Let s hope the sun won t set for good, on many of our endangered animal friends, and they won t be closing their eyes forever. Goodnight now, and let s hope for better tomorrows, where our children can still share a world with wonderful creatures such as elephants, rhinos and giraffes. Let s be better humans  #wildlifeconservation #motherhood #momofboys #momlife #sgmoms #sgkids #familytravel

Earthing! Tyler the Onion Farmer. So nice when kids get to learn about the food we eat, how it grows, and be hands-on in the garden. Tyler dug two rows and planted about 20 onions in the herb garden
