With the competitive standards in Singapore, it’s little wonder that parents are increasingly focusing on ways to get their children to excel academically.
This is evident from the influx of enrichment classes that are available for children as young as six-months-old. With the emphasis on education and results, Singapore has even been applauded for raising the smartest kids in the world!
While our society has nurtured us to be results-driven, we cannot afford to forget that health is wealth.
