How do you raise emotionally secure kids? The mothers behind Habbi Habbi search for answers to tough parenting questions.  

Palo Alto, California – August 2018 

The question of how to raise emotionally secure kids is increasingly relevant, especially for parents in the Bay Area, where the environment is incredibly high pressure and high stakes for kids. Two mothers, Hanna Chiou and Anne-Louise Nieto - seek to answer that, along with other key parenting questions, through Habbi Habbi (Instagram: @BeHabbi)– a collection of insights & products for the modern parent. 

“We had a lot of questions ourselves when we became parents, so we looked for answers,” said Co-Founder Hanna Chiou. “It started with us talking to our friends and then our friends’ parents, and the more conversations we had, the more insights started to emerge.” For example, on the question of raising emotionally secure kids, Chiou and Nieto shared a few of the themes they found especially helpful - words from other parents on how they they approach this question

“We found the answers striking a chord with us and so many of our friends; even parents we didn’t originally know halfway across the world have written to us, saying our offering is ‘non-cliche, fresh, and essential,” said Chiou. “so we thought - why not build a product both on- and off-line to share with others?” That off-line product is an experiential brick-and-mortar store in the heart of Silicon Valley. “It’s a fully integrated experience,” added Co-Founder Anne-Louise Nieto. “Our showroom is a physical extension of our insights, and the space and products represent the values we stand for. We were incredibly intentional about what we put into that space - from our custom art to the brand partners we chose to work with.”
