OUR LOGO

logo

Orange is a colour combination of red and yellow, which signifies energy and happiness respectively. The orange background thus signifies the vibrancy and joys of every family, along with the circle that represents unity, a circle of strength. The five stick figures at the bottom half of the logo each represents a word that makes up a family- Commitment, Understanding, Support, Care and Love. The jumping action portrayed symbolises the enthusiasm for every member to work towards a strong and bonded family relationship.

OUR CORE MISSION: To be an active, effective and united voice for responsible parenting & be Singapore’s prime stop parenting resources.

Parenting United (PU) aims to build widespread awareness and acceptance of parenting education to all parents in Singapore and to be the prime stop for parenting resources. With the commitment of our member agencies and through the tapping of their experience, resources and credibility, we aim to be recognised as an alliance of consolidated body for parenting expertise and reliable advocate for parents in Singapore.

 

OUR VISION: Love ignited in every Home

“Family… a group experience of love and support”

– Marianne Williamson

Love exists everywhere- it is especially indispensable in every home and family. At Parenting United, we focus on strong marriages, responsible and joyful parenting and resilient parent-child relationships. By building a strong parents’ support network, the element of love will be further enhanced into the family. Through this, the isolation of parenting will be eliminated and the children will be given the optimal family environment to mature into loving, responsible and resilient adults.

OUR SHARED VALUES

  1. We respect human life, and uphold human dignity and rights.
  2. The foundation of a resilient society lies upon the healthy marriage between a man and woman, along with the healthy relationship between parents and children.
  3. All children have the rights to be provided with the physical, emotional, social, moral, spiritual and intellectual education by their parents, who have the inherent and natural right and duty.
  4. Parenting is not a biological event but a privilege requiring a lifelong commitment to love and to learn.
  5. We protect the fundamental law of love which implies that all work and service is given in joy, compassion, integrity and humility.
