Hello and Welcome to Parenting With Delight! My name is Jermain Yew, and I’m very pleased that we can connect here.
I’m the founder of Parenting With Delight, and I’m a dad of two young children embracing my fourth decade. I created Parenting With Delight (PWD) to share resources and tools with parents so that we can all raise healthy and happy kids.
Parenting is probably one of the toughest jobs in the world, yet it is often not given much thought about and most of us are doing it without much support or help. Fortunately, effective parenting methods can be learned for those who are willing.
Parenting touches on many areas, including but not limited to scientific methods, psychology, philosophy, nutrition, brain science, behavioral studies, etc. In Parenting With Delight, we mainly focus on clearing our own emotional baggage from our own upbringing and life experiences, so that we can have a deep emotional connection with our child(ren) and enjoy our family life better.
Parenting is truly a life-long journey of learning, personal development and self reflection. The information and resources on this website might evolve with time and needs, however our mission remains firm, which is to empower gentle parents and families to apply conscious peaceful parenting and bring out the best in the children and the parents.
I used to lead an extremely busy corporate life working in multinational companies, and my inability to find a healthy balance between work and family eventually had serious negative implications in my family life. I knew I had to do something, and in my search for parenting help, I came across the Jai Institute for Parenting. The courses, training and the wonderful community in Jai Institute really helped me clear a lot of my limiting beliefs and become a much better parent and husband.
Covid-19 eventually had its effects on my career in the corporate world. Although I tried my best to get back to the corporate world, as I still enjoyed it despite the shortcomings that come with it, I finally had to accept the realization that perhaps I do not fit there anymore.
As blessings in disguise, it was during that time that I got the opportunity to spend quality time with my children, my wife and my parents. I’m truly grateful for my wife and my parents who helped and supported me financially during the time when I functioned mainly as a stay-at-home dad while figuring out what I could do to earn a living and starting a new chapter of my life as a middle-aged man.
With all that was going on around the world as well as much personal internal contemplation, my perspectives on life, family and career changed significantly. During this time, I also reaffirmed conscious peaceful parenting as my life-long commitment and dedication. I believe this was the turning point when I was called to offer my professional service as a certified parenting coach.
I truly believe that self-care for parents is fundamentally important because when we as parents take good care of ourselves, we stand a much greater chance of helping and enjoying the relationship we have with our children. It lights me up to be able to help other parents through struggles I’ve experienced in the past or am struggling with currently in my own parenting.
I naturally connect with parents who are interested in personal development and spiritual development as I have been studying and practicing mindfulness meditation, yoga, breathwork, astrology, Reiki energy healing, A Course In Light (ACIL) and some aspects of quantum physics since 2004.
