In Singapore, terms like tiger parenting are not uncommon. It is defined to be the strict upbringing of children based on tiger parenting strategies which are stringent and authoritative to raise high achieving children (source from verywellfamily.com). With this high expectation of academic success, let’s find out what HappyDotters think about the role of parents in their child’s education.

Our survey results have shown that 68.6% of parents check on their children’s homework frequently or very often. But it is not all one-sided, since 73.8% of parents also praise their children for their efforts to do well in school, balancing out their strict expectation with appropriate words of encouragement.

With the increased involvement in the child’s education, what does this spell for their educational experience?

The highest percentage of 59.3% wanted their child to attain at least a degree.

It is a delightful realisation that both parents and teachers have unique roles to play in shaping the future of their children. From our poll, parents acknowledge that imparting core values such as morals, financial skills, and handyman skills are their responsibility, while social skills are equally important for both parents and teachers to impart. It is amazing to see how everyone can work together to help children become well-rounded individuals.

Understanding that education is non-arguably a life-long skill which includes multiple facets to it, it remains important that we strive towards a successful education system.

These were the 3 highest voted options of what a successful education is. Education remains to be essential in ensuring that our young ones develop a critical mind and important skills in life. With the poll results indicating these traits, it shows that we can continue striving for Singapore to have an even better education – one that is inclusive, safe and nurturing.
