Research has shown that young people with a strong and close relationship with their parents are more likely to also report lower levels of depressive symptoms, suicide thoughts, self-harm and conduct problems. Such youth were more likely to report higher levels of self-esteem and better use of their free time.

Learning to let go as a parent of a Primary 1 child SINGAPORE: It's only the third week of school and already I have mixed feelings about my child starting Primary 1.

Many Singaporeans’ parenting style not helping children succeed - TODAYonline I was disturbed to read the report “MP proposes piloting cluster of schools without exams, streaming” (Jan 22).
