Parents and Children
During the weekend on 15 and 16 March, parents can join in the fun with their kids in literary activities while kids get to meet some of their favourite authors. For parents keen to get some relief from all the exam stress, it’s an opportunity to meet Monica Lim, author of The Good, The Bad and the PSLE – Trials of an Almost Kiasu Mother. Tisa Ho, Executive Director, Hong Kong Arts Festival, described it as “a hilarious first-hand account of competitive parenting in Singapore”.
