CEO of Focus on the Family Singapore, Ms Delia Ng, in response to writer Amy Lim’s article, “Why financial incentives alone aren’t encouraging more births” (Sept 14), mentions that it is important to give the youth of today skills to enhance their familial relationships.
Ms Ng references a survey that was conducted with about 5,000 secondary school students during 2020-2023. She says, “the findings suggest that today’s youth see that the answer lies in building up family ties. They also reveal a keenness in our youth to rise up and take ownership of their own familial well-being.”
She adds: “By giving young people the skills to enhance their familial relationships, we are sowing the seeds for their hopes and dreams for their own families tomorrow.”
