Parenting Support Services
The parenting support services adopts a regional and multi-disciplinary approach to deliver support services for parents with children aged up to 16 years old in the Ang Mo Kio and Yishun area. We provide preventive and upstream support to parents through evidence-based programmes (EBPs) to enhance parenting capabilities, strengthen parent-child relationships and reduce difficult behaviours amongst children. Parents will be equipped with knowledge, skills and confidence to nurture positive family relationships, through seminars and customized consultations.
