13th Singapore Children’s Society Lecture | Saturday, 12 October 2019
The 13th Singapore Children’s Society Lecture will be held on Saturday, 12 October 2019, at the Singapore Management University’s Mochtar Riady Auditorium.
This year’s lecture, ‘Parenting: Does one size fit all?’, will be delivered by Dr John M. Elliott, an academic with a deep interest in the social and cognitive development of young children. He will explore the question of whether parenting research conducted in Western societies is applicable in the Singapore’s context. He will also consider the extent to which the standard view of best parenting practices should be regarded as universally desirable, which the media has sought his views on (catch his interview with Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao here).
Dr Elliott, who retired as Associate Professor from the National University of Singapore’s Department of Psychology in 2018, has been actively involved as a volunteer with Children’s Society’s Research Committee over the last three decades.

Singapore Children’s Forum | Saturday, 30 November 2019
This year’s Singapore Children’s Forum will be held at 9am on Saturday, 30 November, at the Mochtar Riady Auditorium of the Singapore Management University’s Administration Building.
The topic is inequality. Children aged 10 to 14 have been interviewed on what inequality means to them and on the factors that contribute to inequality. Their thoughts and experiences will be presented through a film, which will be followed by a dialogue session.
Singapore Children’s Society initiated the Singapore Children’s Forum in 2013 to serve as a public platform for children in Singapore to dialogue, discuss and express their opinions on issues that affect and matter to them. In keeping with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Singapore Children’s Forum encourages children to actively participate and represent themselves in their communities.
We invite all parents, educators and social service professionals to attend the Forum. Registration details will be available on our website at a later date, so do check back for details.
