With such combined unique background knowledge, experience and findings in the education of the young, both Dr Zaida and Dr Morni combing efforts to share parenting skills in a very meaningful, thought provoking, motivational as well as entertaining sharing to help parents in disciplining kids from toddlers to teens, particularly parents and students from the rural setting such as in Keningau, Sabah.

The goal of parenting is to teach kids to develop self-discipline; and many parents feel that spanking is necessary, an effective method to develop effective discipline. However, both Dr Zaida and Dr Morni talked about disciplining kids from toddlers to adolescents by focusing on developing their self-emotion – ensuring that children feel positive about themselves and to be the winners they were meant to be. For that, they both shared lots of practical solutions for parents to improve communication, building positive relationship as well as sharing other useful parenting skills; and avoiding negative skills such as yelling, screaming, spanking, caning, etc.

More than 250 teachers, parents, and students from secondary schools in and around Keningau district such as SMK Keningau, SMK Keningau II,  SMK Apin-Apin, SM St Francis Xavier, SMK Bingkor, SMK Agama Keningau, SMK Gunsanad, SMK Tulid, SMK Sook, SM Ken Hwa, and SMK Gunsanad II sent their representatives mainly from the upper secondary classes to participate in the event.
