.

โ€œWhat I realised was that parents had so many varied questions about keeping their children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป safe, well & happy during these trying times; but they donโ€™t necessarily have the answers. That is why we started this conversation series ~ To bring parents together to share knowledge & experiences in areas like managing routines & adapting to our childrenโ€™s needs.โ€ added Ms. Daisy ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

Moderator ~ Ms. Daphne Iking, Professional Emcee & TV Personality ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Ms. Daphne ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ has moderated this live conversation ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป with aims to put all minds at ease & answer the pressing questions โ“โ‰๏ธ surrounding kidsโ€™ safety & wellbeing during this pandemic withย 3 Cs to avoid ie. Crowded places, Closed contact & Confined spaces

She ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ has jokingly shared that she was once being discriminated that she is contracting with COVID19 as she is a Sabahan, but she wasn’t back to Sabah at all @@

Guest ~ Ms. Wong Chui Ling, TV/Radio Producer, Speaker & Host๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ has shared some of her insights on how to manage some social situations in public she has personally faced as a celebrity without offending others & you can come home safely to your children without worries, including being out at a public event, someone approaches you for a photo opportunity, still go for the photo ๐Ÿ“ธ opportunity safely by standing apart etc.

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ told that not practical for her to wear a mask to speak her speech on stage as she has kept a distance with her audiences, she speaks without her mask on stage. She told that she will be responsible to announce on her social media if she is contracting with COVID19

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ has shared that eyes contact/ body language to indirectly inform she is not comfortable with certain social activities eg. shake hands, salam, hugs etc. & certain body contact. She told that she will practising some polite reversepsychology as she herself wasn’t sure as she is unwell & would like to keep a distance to avoid a risk of contracting virus during this sensitive pandemic situation

.

โ€œI organised a birthday party for my child ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป a few months back. It was a smaller scale celebration & I was very particular about who I invited to the party. But if anyone asks whether they can organise a party during this time, I would advise against it.โ€ shared by Chui Ling ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ has been very creative by educating her kids by animated the“invisible” COVID19 virus๐Ÿฆ with super power, also she pointed out that moderation is key & a common ground among the family members in taking care the children to coexist with current situationย eg. Still sending them to school etc. as unable to avoid things 100% to be safe

Guest ~ Dr. Ng Yi-Ki, Paediatrician of Baby & Beyond Clinic ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ

It gets increasingly blurry when it comes to managing the risk of exposure on your child ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป when deciding between various weekend activities during this RMCO. As we all aware that a child’s development & personal growth requires interaction with peers through physical & social activities. However, not all activities are weighed equally in terms of the risk of exposure

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ has shared how to pit these activities against guidelines set by the Ministry of Health (MoH) to help all finding the clarity in terms of managing your child ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป’s exposure in various environments through the lens of a paediatrician

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ has further clarified that all must be clear with the facts 1st before taking any safety measurements on kids ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป, be wise from being influenced by any wrong information shared whether on social medias/ WhatsApp messages etc. Yes, managed your risks & do not panic

.

โ€œThe risk of transmission among children is at least 50% lower than adults. Let us not be too obsessive to the point where we scold our kids ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป if they touch their eyes or if they do not wear their masks. What we can do as parents is to teach them to be mindful & wash their hands constantly.โ€ explained by Dr. Ng ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ

Always educate & explain nicelyto kids ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป above 5 years old about what COVID19 & its impacts, then teach them to be more mindful whenever being out, how to wash hands etc. Those below 5 yrs old, much more difficult to educate the messaging as well as to get them wear the disposable masks, instead she got her toodlers to wear cloth masks & guide them to wash hand

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ has reassured & clarified a Qs received from a pregnant mum that wearing mask will still provide enough oxygen to mum for her baby development, so must wear mask during pregnancy

Guest ~ Ms. Daisy Ng, Founder & CEO of Trinity Kids Malaysia๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ has shared the tips on optimisingย  child’s surroundings eg. sanitising own personal space when being out so that they can continue to thrive during this worrying situation. In particularly she mentioned to learn from HK & Taiwan where practising a mandate mask wearing among the communities when unwell & to lower the risk of anย individual from contracting any airborne infectious germs

As parents, it’s important to weight the exposure risk of being an uncontrollable spaces eg. playground/ park vs home, school etc.

โ€œIt boils down to trust towards the schools that your children attend. Are they doing the right thing & taking the right measures? The government has given clear guidelines for schools to create a safe environment for children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป โ€ clarified by Ms. Daisy ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

.

Also she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ has shared how herself & her team are continuously working & adapting behind the scenes to create a safe controlled space for fun learning @ school ๐Ÿซ as well as how to adopt these best practices as she has recommended at home or when you are out in public to protect your children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป

Her school team is practising strict monitoring who is in/ out the school daily, segregating the children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป, controlled environment to reduce risk exposure, zoom sessions with parents to have everyone on the same page on SOP design together, sanitising solutions, body temperature machine with AI recognition for contactless entry etc. Also being responsible to share an emergency response to all parents to strike a balance of being transparency vs the privacy protection of an infected parent

Not just that, herself & team also design & operate digital school for the kids ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป

    1. This program is something that is the need of the hour.
      These corona times have made the kid’s life boring. They need this type of program to keep themselves up.
      And I agree, Parents need to put their more efforts for their children happiness.

  1. This is a great initiative. For the most part, I think we only have a general overview about Covid. It’s good to have a discussion like this to talk about the nitty gritty details about living in the time of Covid as a parent.
