The filial parenting style has been identified to be practiced by Singaporeans; it has produced a generation of children different from the past. Is it a preferred parenting style, You be the judge!

The main aim of this lecture is to inform concerned adults on the conditions and workings of filial parenting. The second aim is to hope that this parenting style will be verified, improved on, or refuted by concerned adults mentioned above. The third aim is to look at the consequences of filial parenting in managing the present generation of Chinese Singaporeans, and possibly other families in Singapore who have adopted the filial parenting style. The fourth aim is to hope that researchers and allied health practitioners (for example, psychologists and sociologists) across the world would investigate if a similar parenting style exists among small families of different cultures.
