Struggling to parent their toddlers while dealing with the emotional roller coaster of divorce, Jennifer* and Stacey* realised they needed help. The two young mothers independently signed up to attend the three-month Good Enough Parenting workshop organised by Yishun Family Service @ Children’s Society (YFC). Little did they know then that they would find more than just parenting skills at the workshop – they would also end up finding a good friend in each other.
Jennifer, whose daughter is 3, instantly clicked with Stacey, who has a daughter the same age and a son who is 2. Over the 12 weekly sessions, during which they learnt how to raise emotionally healthy, successful, and resilient children, they became cheerleaders, emotional support pillars, and listening ears for each other.
Their blossoming friendship has extended to their children, who now have playdates together at playgrounds and beaches.
