About the Author

Ms Vivian Kwek is speaker, trainer, coach and author.  She is also a mother of three and has been researching since 2001 about parenting as well as the physical, psychological and emotional development of children.  She is highly passionate about sharing with parents the importance of building strong connections with the children for the well-being and success of the children.

This book is inspired by Ms Kwek’s family, friends and clients who have benefitted greatly from her advice and expertise in overcoming the challenges they faced with their children.


“Vivian and Juay Seng are wonderful parents not only because their children have developed admirably well but that they are so visibly committed to their loving nurturance.  Herein lies a treasure trove of practical wisdom for parents and would-be parents. And I heartily concur with Juay that had Vivian chosen to do her research in an academic setting rather than her loving home, she would have been a PhD and more.  Not only is she thoughtful in sharing her experience but she is gentle with her advice, granting readers ample encouragement to apply her guidelines in the unique contexts of each home.  I urge all committed parents to journey with Vivian through her book Decoding Your Child. – Dr Tan Poh Kiang, father of 2, General Practitioner

Decoding Your Child is a very straightforward, easy-to-read parenting book that is timely for Singaporean parents, homeschooling or not. Her information is dense but she’s managed to keep her chapters short and simple. Decoding Your Child does not wield the usual storytelling effect in non-fiction books we have come to expect, yet it motivates effectively, simply because the examples are relatable to us local readers. My mindset changed after reading the book. I’m a better person! The take-home for me : I want to highlight paragraphs, read it with my family and buy copies for my friends.” – Dawn Fung, mother of 3, Founder of Homeschool Singapore

Decoding Your Child is a must-have parenting guide for the 21st century. It is an insightful book that helps parents and teachers understand the psyche of the child. After reading the book, I feel less frustrated when my child “misbehaves” as I know that the misbehaviour stems from the fact that my child is having a problem. ” – Caline Tan, 10-year Educator with Ministry of Education and Author of Popular Children Book Series “Robozonic“

Decoding Your Child offers fresh perspectives to parents. The reflections Vivian share are sincere, and her tips very practical. Her words make me think about how I can be a better parent and person. Decoding Your Child helps me build a better connection with my children and spouse!” – Carine Ray, mother of 3, Homemaker.
