Ask any parent and they very likely will say that parenting is the most rewarding thing they have done and yet also the hardest. As we highlight the difficult topic of experiencing pain in the family this month, we'll be looking at the pain spots we experience in parenting.
From adjusting to handle the night feeds when children are young to managing angsty teenagers, parents will face varying degrees of pain in their parenting journey. Can you find the pleasure of parenting in the midst of trying moments?
In this episode, our host, Aaron Ng, will be speaking with Daryl Koh, a father of 2 and an educator in a local school. Daryl is married for 17 years and his children are aged 14 and 12 years old. He is passionate about engaging young people and he has been teaching for more than 20 years.
