Family Bonding Requires Planning…But Does It Really?

Do you do the Sunday thing with your family too? Where you allot that one day of the week as ‘family day’? Lunches, dinners, picnics, movies; all the fun that you plan and save for right before the start of a new work week. Sometimes, it seems as though it is the only time we set aside to spend with family. 

But why? Is the scramble to book tickets for shows and outings necessary to spend a quality day with your loved ones? Moreover, does it not count as ‘family day’ if there is no prior planning involved? 

It may seem as though this article has been nothing but a barrage of questions from the get-go. But to the family man or woman reading this right now, I would appreciate if you could take a moment to answer them for yourself. 

To put it plainly, bonding is simply being together. Small activities such as cleaning the house or sitting on the couch watching television together after dinner counts as bonding too. These can go a long way, with moments being created which the entire family can laugh about – now or even years later. 

Spending time together, even the slightest moments, does wonders for any relationship. One example would be that of younger parents and children. While children learn how to behave and function in the world, parents are simultaneously learning how to do a good job at teaching them while building a strong foundation with them. 

The latter, especially, is crucial. 

Studies have shown that spending time with your children has many benefits in shaping them, such as improved behaviour and grades. In the long run, these qualities make children bloom into ambitious, hardworking, and pleasant individuals. 

Bonding with your children also gives them plenty of room for creative space, most likely through the games played together as a family. Something as simple as building a fort can not only hone their skills, but also get their creative juices flowing. For instance, they could imagine the fort to be a kitchen and pretend to cook and serve dishes. Or the fort could serve as a clinic, in which case their inner doctor might make an appearance.  

Not to mention, it leads them to see you as a constant; someone vital and present in most – if not all – their earlier happy memories. When they build a fort in the future, perhaps with their own children, you will definitely be reminisced fondly.

This is not limited to just your children; bonding has a significant positive effect on your relationship with your parents, spouse and other loved ones as well.

The key to a happy and successful life is strong and healthy familial ties. Without family, there is no base unit and neither, perhaps, any source of support.

So, take some time out today – be it the moment you get back home or while having dinner afterward – to nurture small yet quality moments with the people you go home to. After all, home is where the heart is, and the heart is where family is.

How Young Working Parents Can Make Their Homes Safer Today.

In the case of family, there are no chances taken when it comes to being protected on all fronts; financially, health-wise, or any other. For any working parent, the safety and security of family is of utmost priority. Everything that comes into the house has to pass the parent-check first, and very rightly so because how else would the children be protected?

Essentially, what I am trying to say here is that safety does not happen accidentally. It takes rigorous effort and constant vigilance for Mummy and Daddy to make home feel like home in every sense.

Especially for things that they oftentimes may not have personal involvement in, such as housekeeping. During these times of duress, the demand for domestic help has stayed strong despite rising costs of keeping them. Even before the pandemic hit, there were already one in five Singaporean households that had a domestic helper

Today, the situation is even more dire. Having a helper has morphed drastically from a luxury good into a necessity – especially for young parents. Given this pandemic period, however, more domestic helpers are leaving the country and fewer are coming in

Since getting a full-time domestic helper is a scene where demand far exceeds supply, it is only natural for young working parents to turn to part-time hired help, and that entails a different set of security issues for a thorough parent to overcome. Since it is only legal to turn to the freelancer Singaporean and PR community for part-time help, there may be a prevalent concern of the lack of involvement of a higher authority. 

Parents may find this a drawback as they do not have the platform to express their concern about the freelancer, if any.

And that is where we come in. You see, Phix Customer is not just an app which offers over 300 services for you to choose from. It is an app which has people working and available behind the scenes; anytime, any day. 

Which means that at any point before, during, or after your booking process, should you have any concerns about the service provider – in this case, freelance housekeeper – we’re only one call away. Or message, for that matter – reaching us is really quite easy.

Contacting us aside, the app provides a list of housekeepers available in your geolocation once you enter your address and choose the service you require. Their ratings, reviews, rates and information on their past experience help you in booking the services of the provider you deem most suitable. 

The concerns of young working parents are something we understand, and so we do our best to make your experience a seamless one. Safety will never not be a prevalent factor for Mummies and Daddies, but with us, it will definitely be a mitigated one.

Take this chance to put your worries aside, for your safety is our priority. We would love to do our part in helping you make home just that – home.
