What people are saying about Educating Karen Chen – The E-book

“I enjoyed reading ‘Educating Karen Chen’. The book is well-written and describes Singapore’s education system. Many parents will be able to relate to what is shared.  I found the practical solutions that unfolded in the story very invaluable.  This book opens our eyes to the pressure and struggles our children face in school. At the same time parents can learn how to help their children – first by managing themselves. All parents with school-going children should read this book.”
