Divorced and widowed parents are treated differently. The children of divorced parents appear to be less frequently involved in co-residence with their parents than are the children of widows and widowers. (...) These differences may be explained by the better health situation of divorced parents, who tend to be somewhat younger than widowed parents, and the lower mean number of children born to them. (...) Older parents maintain these intergenerational support ties―independent of processes of family change on the part of the parents and/or the children.

(...) Concerning several SDGs, support parents and families in work, education, and transitions, through the provision of comprehensive, well-resourced and flexible parental leave entitlements, the promotion of skill development and continuing education, sup-port in workforce re-entry, and foster dialogue and partnership between policymakers, businesses, civil society, and families, to make workplaces more family-friendly. 6. Improve data collection and research on the following issues: a) The integration of youth into society, especially as it relates to youth unemployment, and young people becoming discouraged workers or accepting jobs that are dangerous, exploitative, or otherwise unsuitable, and the connections between poor youth integration and intergenerational poverty, social exclusion, crime, and poor health. b) The increasing prevalence of ‘full-nest syndrome’, in which young people de-pend on their parents and grandparents for a longer time, due both to lack of employment and the failure of the labour market to take into account the needs and desires of women who want to become mothers, and resulting in an increase in age at childbearing and a decrease in the number of children couples have compared to previous generations. c) Ways to promote ‘active ageing’ as populations age due to low birth rate, including policies, practices and items which can help senior family members to avoid social exclusion and continue to feel needed and valued by their families, prolonging their lives and mitigating the lack of family carers. …… Thank you, Mr.

Singaporeans are vastly wealthier than they were four or five decades ago, but, paradoxically, many feel a sense of relative deprivation, which means that aspirations can only be met by both parents working. The financial and opportunity costs of raising children are considerable, particularly as parents face enormous pressure for their children to succeed in a competitive system described as an education “arms race”. (...) There are three main categories: (1) financial incentives; (2) support for parents to combine work and family; and (3) policies to encourage marriage. (...) Probably the greatest need is for broad social change supportive of children and parenting, a difficult area for government policy.
