How Michelle Reis is like as a mum

29 April 2014 / 2 years 5 months ago

Since marrying Julian Hui and giving birth, Michelle Reis has enjoyed a semi-retired lifestyle.

According to an article in Jayne Stars, Michelle sometimes takes up select work projects of interest, although she admitted that her son, Jayden, will get upset if she is away from Hong Kong for several days in a row.

While Jayden still needs time to grow more emotionally independent, he is talented in many other areas and can converse in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Japanese.

Despite being pampered by Michelle, Jayden is taught to be very polite to others and possesses good manners. He would nod and smile every time he sees someone, and greet them enthusiastically.

To ensure that Jayden gets into a reputable elementary school in Hong Kong’s highly competitive schools, Michelle signed him up for a variety of activities.

Jayden attends arts and crafts classes two days a week, and gymnastics classes at the same fitness center as Miriam Yeung’s son Torres. In his spare time, Julian will also play chess with Jayden.

In addition to his packed schedule, Jayden currently attends the prestigious Victoria Educational, an organization that prepares children for kindergarten enrollment in Hong Kong’s top international schools. Victoria’s classes are conducted in two languages and has attracted an elite clientele, including Eason Chan‘s daughter.

However, Michelle insists that she is not a strict parent, and emphasized the importance of sleep for children.

She has yet to pick a school for Jayden since he is a rather active child who may not be suited for traditional schooling methods.

“We don’t know if we’re going to follow the traditional method because there might be too much homework and memorization.

"We’ll see. I don’t want his childhood to turn into something that’s too stressful.”
