Calling out for Autism Awareness (Part 1)

Autism was not a disorder that was well researched or studied until the 80s. No one really knows what autism was, let alone the cause. My brother was born in 1966 and he looked no difference from the rest of us. He was cute just like any other child; he had a well...

Not All Heros Wear Capes

「溫故而知新,可以為師矣。」

「溫故而知新,可以為師矣。」   孔子曾經說過:「三思而後行」我一直都對那句話有深深的疑問,直到那次,我終於明白到它的意思。我因心急和衝動,一時失去理智,沒有把事情想清楚再作決定,結果就是我自作自受…… 記得那次,我和班中一羣男生,為了一些無聊的小事,我們討論了整個小息,不但得不到結論,反而令大家心裏存着芥蒂。我們都帶着這種不安的心情回家去。雖然我知道,只要我們大家讓一讓,忍一忍,這件事就不會變成一件大事,但我卻做不到。...

Testimonials

I attended the Parenting Workshop on Teens and Technology. Given that I have two teens of my own, so much of what she said really hit the mark ! I felt that finally, someone was dealing with a matter that is so relevant. Her suggested remedies and coping strategies were so impactful, and seemed so obvious after she told us. Anyone with a teen should sign-up for this course, it is so heartening that we are not alone, and together we can get through this difficult period.

Sandy was so helpful giving me guidance as to how to prepare my child for a top university, by laying out the roadmap of options regarding Extra Curricular Activities, Essay topics and what Service choices to aim for. She explained and guided me as to what college admission officers are looking for, so I could refine with her help, my application. I am off to a top US University this fall, and really wanted to say thank you to her ….. ?
