Families for Life Council Member BG(NS) Ishak Ismail said, “Fathers, grandfathers and uncles play significant roles in all stages of a child’s development. From learning how to ride a bicycle to cultivating hobbies, father figures influence greatly the values that are instilled in a child and in shaping the emotional well-being of a child. Watching the interactions between fathers and their children at the “Celebrating Fathers” Picnic today has encouraged the Families for Life Council in our expanded #IChooseFamilyTime campaign to engage more families in Singapore.”
