Our Aim

Strong families form the basic core of healthy communities. Nurturing and transmission of values and character takes place in the safety of the home environment. Filos' Family Life programmes aim to build the resilience of families, empowering spouses, parents and children with skills to strengthen their relationships with each other, to support and encourage each other in the ups and downs of life.

Programmes


Parents Plus Programmes

Parent Plus Early Years’ Programme (PPEY) and Parent Plus Children’s Programme (PPCP) are evidence-based parenting courses design to support and empower parents to manage parent-child communication, relationship building and behavior management. This programme uniquely combines a social learning model with a solution-focused preventive framework that encourages parents and children to be proactive in making positive changes in their relationships with each other.

PPEY and PPCP aim to help parents find ways to help their children by:

  • Solving parenting problems in positive ways that help children learn
  • Managing difficult behaviours and discipline problems
  • Helping their children be more co-operative and to learn the importance of keeping to rules
  • Helping their children learn and reach their full potential at school
Family Matters Programmes (approved by MSF)

The Family Matters Programmes are listed on the MSF Family Matters programme menu. These include:

  • Effective Communication with your Child/Teen
  • Parent-Child Reality Check (using DISC, a behaviour assessment tool to enable parents to better understand their children’s personalities and motivations)
  • Seven Principles to a Healthy Marriage
Filos Mothers’ Group

The Filos Mother’s Group was set up for mothers who live around the Kembangan-Chai Chee neighbourhood. It serves to provide the mothers some respite from their daily parenting and household responsibilities. Through this programme, we hope they will feel supported and appreciated as they pick up some new skills during each meet up. The group meets every 2 months to partake in exciting activities, such as zumba and make-up lessons, as well as informative talks on health and financial matters.

  • Talking to your Child about Sexuality
