Additional Information

Topic: Parenting concept- Appreciation Education (about positive discipline)


  • This parenting concept is developed by Prof Zhou Hong, which focuses on a child’s strengths and builds upon these positive traits to inculcate a healthy self-esteem in the child.
  • Began his journey to teach his deaf daughter Zhou Tingting after refusing to accept the norm expectation of a handicapped child. Every time that Tingting did something right, her father will show her “thumb-up” which had encouraged her to continue. It was a true affirmation and appreciation to every small success. That had built confidence and self motivation to learn even more. 
  • The first step was teaching Tingting to read, write and possibly to speak. Via a great deal of practice, at age 3 she managed to intone simple words, and by age 6 she’d learned 2,000 Chinese characters.
  • Tingting’s struggle to be “normal” pushed to exceed far beyond that of her non-disabled peers.  At age 8, she could recite Pi to 1,000 figures past the decimal point, breaking the Guinness World Record at the time. At 10, she co-authored a book, From a Deaf Girl to a Talented Child. At 11, Tingting was selected as one of China’s Top 10 Young Pioneers by the Communist Youth League of China, the Ministry of Education and the National Working Committee of China Young Pioneers and CCTV.

Highlights of the seminar:

  • How you can build good relationship with your child as a first step towards nurturing better behaviour.
  • How you can focus on a child’s strengths to build healthy self-esteem and thereby encourage better behaviour?
  • How to communicate with your child so that they will listen?
  • How to look for the underlying source of the bad behaviour and address the root of the misbehaviour
