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 in families.

At this upcoming seminar State of the Family (SOTF), dive deeper into trends and national conversations that affect emerging families, and explore ways you can shape the relationships in the next generation. 

The seminar will also reveal findings from a local research study done on the impact of fatherhood involvement and marital strength on the family aspirations of the next generation.

At SOTF 2024 you will:

  • Connect the dots on how the state of current marriages and families shapes the desirability of marriage in our children and youths.
  • Discuss how children’s first relationships with their father/mother shape their understanding of gender roles and masculinity/femininity, and how these impact identity formation, interpersonal relationships and marriage. 
  • Better understand the aspirations of youths for their future families, shifting priorities and the dwindling importance placed on having children.

On the panel are:

  • Nicholas Gabriel Lim, head of Graduate Diploma in Youth Work and Professional Life Coaching Programmes at SUSS
  • Judith Xavier, a working mum with two teens
  • Luke Ong, undergraduate & youth advocate
