A good-quality education, which enables your child's success, can be costly. Debentures, school fees and planning for university can cause considerable financial and emotional stress for parents. Once your child is offered a place, do you have a clear understanding of the short- and long-term expenses, and access to required funds? Our panel will provide practical ways to manage your money, budget for unexpected expenses, and give your child the best possible education.

Many parents might wonder how to raise intelligent, successful and emotionally and mentally healthy children. Dgitally-savvy teens are using social media platforms as a tool to strengthen friendships, enhance self-expression and learn about subjects that personally interest them. But with the benefits come dangers. Each day, new cases of social media addiction, cyberbullying and mental health problems linked to social-media use emerge. As teenagers' reliance and time spent on smartphones grow, how can parents and schools instill healthy habits to protect their children without denying access to the benefits social media ad the interne can provide?
