Most of our posts are often about educational stuff for kids but what about parents? I guess we must not forget ourselves. As parents, we must first take care of ourselves well before we can look after others. SAHMs should not allow themselves to get into a rut while FTWMs should avoid getting stuck in a humdrum routine. If you want to be around your children yet do something productive, consider running a business that revolves around doing something with kids.
Perhaps you are teaching your child at home and then some of the parents of her other classmates requested you to teach their children as well. One thing can lead to another and soon you may even be running a private home tuition centre!
Today, I would like to share with you the story of two partners who did just that. They are from Hobby Hop In. Hobby Hop In is a learning centre in Bangsar. Classes run at the centre include phonics, reading, speech and drama and arts & crafts.
This is what one of the partners had to say
"My partner now was my son's art teacher. My neighbour was trying to get a group of kids together so she can come in and teach us. At the time my elder son was 3.5yrs old. A year later, there was a space for rent at my condo. She then asked me if I was interested to run it. Certainly .... Coz it was where we live. I do not need to drive. And I was beyond elated. Finally after years of flying and now I am able to do something else besides being a sham mum without a maid.
