Meet The Team

Our History

Chapter Zero started back in 2015 by two mums who were yearning for children to have a childhood with more freedom, play, and respect so they set up the organisation hoping to make a change, with one family at a time.

We founded the Facebook Group Mindful/Respectful Parenting Singapore which now has 19.3K followers and has been instrumental in creating a large supportive community of parents and caregivers. 


The natural next step was to meet the growing demand of parents wanting more depth of learning which leads us to where we are today.


- Creating and facilitating in-house workshops 'Respectful Parenting Workshops Series' and 'The Mindful Nanny',

- Expert facilitated playgroups

- Training parents in the internationally known 'Parent Effectiveness Training',

- Hosting talks and events with Nonviolent Communication trainers

- Organising  our popular Pop-Up Adventure Playgrounds where we give children the opportunity for some child led play and family bonding,

What's next for us? Continue supporting and learning together with caregivers.

Joline Lim

She has the honour of teaming up with Li Ling to fulfill their common passion of powering with the caregiving community in Singapore. As a Parent Advocate, she enjoys connecting with caregivers and understanding their needs and figuring out ways to support them.

Joline finds joy in the little things such as sipping warm frothy cappuccino on a rainy day, and silly puns. (PS: check out my mug shot.)

Sophia Klopp

Sophia Klopp is a mother to three children born between 2006 - 2016.


She has transitioned her way from traditional into respectful parenting in 2015. It has been an interesting and some might say hair-raising journey (see picture!) to get her spouse on board and witnessing the difference in all three children who were parented differently in their younger years.


She’s a certified parent educator of Positive Discipline (Nelsen) and practices a combination of NVC, P.E.T. and Positive Discipline, among others.


She believes that one should take what resonates with them and apply it into their own unique journey.


Sophia loves to laugh, play and be silly with her family. During free time, she likes listening to podcasts and binge-watch shows.
