She also writes a blog where many issues, concerns and topics are shared with regards to parenting, schools and ways children learn. She is also working on a couple more books.
Jashpreet has also assisted schools in implementing the Massage in Schools Programme (MISP) which is a revolutionary programme for children ages 4-12 that helps instill self-respect, respect of peers, reduce bullying and aggression in schools, help children to relax, increase concentration and many more. Furthermore, this programme also includes integration of games and movements in learning school subjects which is a fun way children can learn and children learn best through movement. She hopes to see more children in school allowed to learn in a more relaxed and less stressful manner for their mental and emotional well-being and MISP can provide that platform. She brings her enthusiasm when she trains MISP instructors in Malaysia and overseas and truly believes that this programme is impressive and every child needs touch as a human being for the betterment of our society and so many more benefits.
