Happy In My Skin

Times have and are continually changing, which makes it difficult for parents in the older generations to relate with their kids. Especially in sensitive topics such as sexuality, it has become increasingly difficult to really connect with the youth. With Happy In My Skin (Parents’ version), you will get to be equipped with the appropriate mindset and methods in how to approach the topic of gender identity and sexuality with your children.  

Here are some questions you might have asked before that this event will tackle!

  • Why is the younger generation increasingly uncomfortable/confused about their gender? 
  • Are there really more genders than just being male and female?
  • What is “gender dysphoria”?
  • How can I teach my child about gender & gender identity?
  • How do children become comfortable with the sex they are born with? 
  • Why do I need to be the primary educator of gender issues to my child?
  • Come and learn how to guide your child in thinking about and navigating gender identity

SG Family Law Seminar

As seen in the title, this Singapore Family Law Seminar will cover topics regarding legal procedures, laws, and other concerns that a parent and family might have in Singapore. There will be a Q&A portion at the end of each topic discussed so listen and prepare any concerns you may have! The topics include:

  • Marital Breakdown Procedure in Singapore
  • Family Violence – Reporting, Protection Orders & Support Available
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution Options
  • Visa Considerations

These subject matters may sound too daunting and scary for most people as these aren’t things anyone should take lightly – which is exactly why we must talk about it and listen. Even though your family might not be experiencing these things, it would be more beneficial than harmful to have additional knowledge on topics that can potentially help other families too.
