Parents Workshop: Language Learning

Among Beijing’s communities and families, House of Knowledge has been well known for its premium trilingual education program for past decades. Here, children learn naturally to communicate in Chinese, English, and German.

You will discuss examples and cases that help you understand how children gain a new language skill step by step.

Parents Workshop: Boundaries

November 2nd (Thursday), 6pm-7:30pm

“What should I do when my child is not listening to me?” For Early Years parents, this may be a very common and typical question that you may ask and wonder what the answer would be.

We all know setting boundaries is important for children, but how do we find the right balance between rules and freedom? Why it is so important to set boundaries and how to set rules effectively for your child(ren) in everyday use?


In this Workshop, Farshad will show and explain what boundaries and rules mean to children, how this can help support a child’s well-being and healthy development, as well as how children learn responsibilities through rules.
