Dr Kang provided practical communication and lifestyle prescriptions to enhance key twenty first century skills in young children. The content included expansion of the understanding of key concepts of self-motivation, adaptability and consciousness quotient. Need to promote creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and contribution as a part of Consciousness Quotient or 5CQ’s was emphasized. The parents said they were very satisfied to have found answers to some very difficult problems.
