Strengthening Bonds at Home, Work and Play

At Home, individuals can take active steps to enrich family life. This year, children in preschools and primary schools will receive NFF craft kits through their schools, adding to FFL’s range of family bonding resources. This initiative aims to promote creativity and quality family time as children and their families work together to create personalized crafts at home. Couples can embark on a journey of self-discovery and relationship enhancement through Our Marriage Journey Quiz and marriage enrichment courses. Parents (and grandparents) on the other hand, can acquire valuable techniques for nurturing a positive home environment and strengthening parent-child bonds through Purposeful Play and Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P).

At Work, NFF advocates family-friendly workplaces by encouraging companies to organise FFL programmes, celebrate NFF through corporate family days and align family days with time off for employees to celebrate NFF festivities.
