Subject to the special features of different ages, Julia Cook presented the students some games and stories with text and pictures explaining how to deal with bullying, how to develop good study habits, and how to manage time. In the meetings, the students were all attracted by Ms. Cook’s creditable speech and enjoying the relaxed and pleasing atmosphere. Benifiting from multiple teaching languages and mixed culture, not only did students talk with the writer freely, but they were also able to propose their own views. THSI is always committed to inspiring and encouraging all the learners to develop the thirst for knowledge and the ability of problem solving.

Julia Cook’s books

There are many beautiful and imaginative pictures in Julia’s books which reflect questions in real life and readers can find pieces of advice in solving problems. Ms. Cook said, ‘Human relationships are built upon trusts and communication. Parents usually have lots of ideas to cultivate their kids but their time is limited. Given that all of us hope children to be happy, healthy and successful, parenting is supposed to be more efficient, which means parents need professional suggestions, strategies and support.’

Julia Cook with parents

THSI specially invited parents to campus talking with Ms. Cook about common child rearing concerns. In the modern society, parents of bright and bilingual children may find themselves confronting parenting dilemmas that their own parents never considered: how to deal with problematic angst of children, how to establish trust and dialogue between parents and their kids, and how to raise children’s sense of responsibility.In the meeting, parents can take advantage of the guidance from Cook.
