Raising Barry - an Unconventional Parent Raises a President

By Arun Abey - 15th November 2011

Ann Dunham (Soetoro) Sutoro’s life is changing the course of history, yet most people have never heard of this remarkable woman. When I first met Ann in Jakarta in March 1981, I had no idea how great an impact she would have on world history and politics ... We had an immediate rapport.

Perhaps I reminded her of her son Barry, born in Hawaii in 1961, a few years younger than me, and then studying and working in the United States.

Educating our Children for Long-Lasting Fulfilment

By Arun Abey - 5th July 2010

Of course when we say we want our kids to be happy we mean we want them to enjoy a holistic sense of wellbeing. Critical to this will be their ability to lead a life which is congruent with their values, priorities and passions.
