Starting from this month, Bumble Bee Mum will be joining the ranks of KiasuParents.com‘s new Kindred Parents Initiative.

I bet all of you who know me will be thinking now, “What the #### are you doing with Kiasu Parents???”  Coz I’m probably one of the most NOT kiasu parents in Singapore – at least if your idea of Kiasu-ness is limited to academic achievements.  I’m actually quite kiasu in other aspects, like trying to snitch a good airfare deal, but that’s a story for another time.

Personally, I dislike the over-emphasis on pursuing academic excellence.  The day before one of MF’s so-called ‘Common Test’ earlier this month, we were binge-eating chocolates at Universal Studios Singapore.  You can say it was an act of defiance against the system – a refusal to succumb.  And many parents (me included) associate KiasuParents.com with this pursuit for academic excellence.

After meeting up with the people behind KiasuParents.com and speaking to them personally, I realised that they are not that different from me.  And I felt that KiasuParents.com is a deeply misunderstood portal.  They never meant to be a driver for parents to be super kiasu in terms of academics.  All they wanted to do was to provide information they thought would be useful to parents.  Which is essentially what Bumble Bee Mum does as well, just that we provide information in different areas.

So I guess that’s why they now have this Kindred Parents initiative which I’m happy to be a part of.  Where KiasuParents.com has reached out to parents (not just me) with different parenting styles and interests to provide a diversified range of information (beyond which are the ‘good schools’ to enroll in and how to get in.)  And we all share one common goal:

We want to bring back the good old Singaporean kampong spirit where parents support one another and grow our children together. 

Photo Story Competition

To get the kampong spirit rolling, KiasuParents.com has launched a contest called “Kampong Spirit Parents Photo Story Competition“.
