With every mum and dad possessing his or her own parenting style, there really is no one right way to raise the kids. Ultimately, we want what’s best for our child.

Parenting can be stressful and tiring business, but Michelle Hon, better known as The Chill Mom (IG: @thechillmom, blog: http://www.thechillmom.com), says that when you’re relaxed and confident, you’ll find it easier to help your child stay One Step Ahead.

“My parenting style is best described as flexible and versatile,” says social media influencer Michelle. “I respond to my kids – two girls and a boy, aged 20 months to six years – according to their character and their needs in any given situation. I can be a tiger mum at times, especially when it comes to disciplining our kids, but overall I’m pretty relaxed.”

How does Michelle help her children stay One Step Ahead? “I like to encourage my children to make their own decisions,” she says. “Knowing that I regard their opinions as valid and that I support their decisions no matter what, gives them the confidence to try their best, bounce back from failure and deal with whatever life throws at them, and come out as winners.”
Michelle adds that she and her husband live by five rules, which she also shared in her new book, The Chill Mom: How To Go From Anxious Expectant Mother To Relaxed, Confident Mom

1. We listen to our own instinct and act accordingly.
2. We do not place a label on ourselves and our children.
3. We would not compare ourselves and our kids with others.
4. We do not try to please everyone and do right by ourselves.
5. We try not to interfere with our kids and trust them to do the right thing.

In addition to being relaxed and confident, Michelle believes that you can empower your children and help them stay One Step Ahead by giving them the right foods.

“Ninety per cent of the time, my kids eat home-cooked meals made from natural ingredients. I always make sure they’re getting enough DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid that’s essential for brain development in children. My kids get their daily DHA from omega-3-rich foods like salmon, eggs, nuts and avocado. Another thing that helps with their overall growth and development and supports their natural defences is outdoor play.”

The Aptamil Gold+ range of milk formulas1 is another way Michelle gives her children a nutritional boost.
