"When Norman Sawi, a journalist at the Berita Harian newspaper, wrote the bilingual book 10 Inspiring Fathers, he was struck by what the different fathers profiled have in common.

It mostly, however, features ordinary fathers who are not famous names – one who worked a few jobs to support his family, another who fought kidney failure, diabetes and other ailments and cherishes his time with his children.

Norman, 37, wrote the book, which is in Malay and English, with the help of the Association of Muslim Professionals and the Centre for Fathering. He says it is aimed at the wider Singapore community.

The two organisations, which provide parenting tips in the book, are partnering Berita Harian, the local Malay daily, to promote fathering, especially in the Malay community, says Norman, who is married with a two-year-old son.

He adds: "The common bond the fathers in the book have is that they are always driven by their love for their families."

GIVING HOPE, CHANGING LIVES

Finding the courage to leave her marriage of more than 15 years was not an easy matter for Mdm Tina. Having been in an abusive relationship, she finally decided that she will no longer be a victim.

Shortly after the divorce, she was left to fend for her four young school-going children on her own. Her former husband also left them to deal with his debt and they had to deal with harassment from unknown moneylenders. Consequently, they often lived in fear and in darkness to avoid confronting the moneylenders who would harass them in the day and night.

Mdm Tina’s family is among the beneficiaries under AMP’s Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AFYS) who are going through challenges in life. Your support towards our cause can help them in their effort towards changing their lives for the better.

Tune in to Mediacorp Radio Warna 94.2FM on Friday, 19 January 2018 for our second talkshow, where DJs A B Shaik Banafe' and TG will be speaking to Mdm Tina who will share how she faced the dark moments of her marriage, while ensuring her children’s needs are met.

Through AFYS, families like Mdm Tina’s are assisted with economic empowerment and socio-educational programmes in their journey towards self-reliance. Most importantly, AFYS helps to strengthen their family unit as they work towards building a better future for themselves.

Do your part to help the less privileged families.

#MotivationMonday Imagine you were asked to invent something new. That kind of creative freedom sounds so liberating, or ...does it?

As it turns out, boundless freedom isn't always helpful. In reality, any project is restricted by many factors called 'creative constraints' — the requirements and limitations we have to address to accomplish a goal.

In this video, STEM-education specialist, Brandon Rodriguez, explains how creative constraints actually help drive discovery and innovation.

Someone asks you, 'How does it feel?'
Kind of anti-climactic, you feel.

Psychologist, Adam Atler, says that this scenario is quite common among those who have achieved even the highest benchmarks in business, athletics, or art and it's because the goal setting process is broken.

In this video, he suggests swapping quantitative goals for qualitative systems that nourish you psychologically, and are independently rewarding each time you do them.

Local Posted 1 year ago

AMP senior manager Hameet Khanee told The Sunday Times that easy access to narcotics has contributed to the increase in the number of Malay drug abusers.

Highlighting that some drugs are easily available online, she added: "Current awareness programmes and drug prevention campaigns should be enhanced, especially those targeted at schools.

"More effort should go into enhancing the role of the family as the main avenue of support and educator. This is particularly more important for families where both parents are working and supervision is minimal."

In a move to reach out to Malay/Muslim drug offenders who are still behind bars and their families, AMP launched last month its new Development and Reintegration Programme.

Madam Hameet said there are two phases in this initiative. The first one has 10 sessions covering topics on reflection, strengthening families, financial literacy, work-related skills and new beginnings.

These are designed to complement the programmes that are currently being offered by the Singapore Prison Service.

The second phase focuses on after-care, with case work services for inmates and their families.

There are 23 inmates and families in the pilot run. The goal is to support up to 100 inmates and their families over a year.
