Partnership Dinner 2024

As our social fabric unravels in the midst of shifting values and waning aspirations for Family, Focus on the Family Singapore aims to ramp up our efforts to sow the seeds of healthy identity and family aspirations to strengthen young families, young adults and youths who are in the process of forming attitudes about dating, hopes for marriage, and their future families.

This year, we are particularly excited to celebrate 10 years of FamChamps® – a youth development initiative that raises young family champions who believe in, live out and champion family. As FamChamps® enters its 10th year, we remain steadfast in our commitment to inspire youths and young adults to believe in family, and to dream for their future family. We will also continue to channel our efforts to equip married couples and young parents so that more can be equipped to parent confidently.

This annual fundraiser is an opportunity for us to host and appreciate our partners and share our vision for the next season. We welcome likeminded friends who are interested in strengthening Family with us!

State of the Family 2024

Empower Emerging Families
 

In light of recent policy changes and various national conversations on Family and its values, there is an urgent need to sow the seeds of healthy identity and family aspirations to strengthen Emerging Families.

Who makes up Emerging Families? These are young families (i.e. parents with young children), young adults and youths who are in the process of forming attitudes and aspirations about dating, marriage, and their future families.

At this upcoming State of the Family (SOTF), we seek to dive deeper into trends and national conversations that affect Emerging Families, and explore ways that we can come together to shape the relationships in the next generation. We will also be unveiling findings from a local research on the impact of fatherhood involvement and marital strength on the family aspirations of the next generation.

SOTF 2024 aims to shine the spotlight on the Emerging Family:

1. Connect the dots on how the state of current marriages and families shapes the desirability of marriage and future of families that would emerge from our children and youth.
 
2. Discuss how the child’s first relationship with their father/mother shapes their understanding of gender roles and masculinity/femininity, and how these impact identity formation, interpersonal relationships and marriage. 
 
3. Better understand the aspirations of youths for their future families, considering shifting priorities and the dwindling importance placed on having children.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? We’re here to help.

Date with Dad is a one-on-one event which allows you to establish that significant relationship with your daughter and give her your undivided attention.

 

If you have a younger daughter, you may wish to attend this event with her next year. 

Date with Dad is designed for dads to have deeper connections with daughters heading into their tweens and teenhood. 

 

You may wish to wait till your daughter is older so she will experience the full benefits of the programme.

The recommended maximum age for daughters is 16yo as this event celebrates the important milestone of teen daughters becoming young women.

Research from Institute of Family Studies has shown that there is a unique bond between a father and his daughter — the father-daughter relationship greatly influences a girl’s developing self-image and approach to future romantic relationships.

 

If you are not a father or are looking for a bonding event with your son, do check out The Select: Mission 1114, a parent-child adventure designed for parent and tween (11-14yo). 

Find a flat surface, place a ruler on your daughter's ring or middle finger and measure the width to determine the size of her ring.

 
 

There are 10 ring sizes, ranging from 1.60cm to 1.90cm, for you to choose from on the registration form. If the ring does not fit your daughter's finger, you will have the opportunity to do an exchange on the event day.

We encourage you to make all necessary arrangements to ensure that you and your daughter's schedules are clear for Date with Dad. There will be no refunds* for cancellations or no-shows.

 

Requests for transfer of registration will be accepted until 3 Nov 2023.
