The workshops facilitate discussions on different parenting topics like making DIY toys with children or handling children’s minor illnesses

The workshops provided useful parenting knowledge and gifts to over 600 local parents and children.

Specifically, more than 600 parents, kindergarten staff, and children from Thoi Lai town’s kindergarten, Xuan Thang and Truong Thang kindergartens of Thoi Lai district, Can Tho city, as well as Tu An kindergarten in Buon Ma Thuot city attended “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” workshops.

The two workshops facilitated discussions on different parenting topics: spending time making DIY toys with children to help them develop creative thinking and emotional intelligence; how to handle sibling fights; and handling children’s minor illnesses and tips for boosting their immune system.

Apart from giving useful parenting knowledge, the workshops also bring sweet moments to local families

Other major topics helped establish healthy routines to make children’s meals nutritious and enjoyable; controlling parenting anger and minimising domestic tensions to avoid hurting the children; and making plans to spend quality time with children.

These topics fall under the programme’s three main content groups of intelligence, behaviour, and health of children from newborns to six years.

At these events, Generali Vietnam handed gift sets to all participating children, programme booklets to their parents, and 60 special gifts in cash and in-kind to 60 needy families from the local communities.

Tina Nguyen, Generali Vietnam CEO, shared: “We are very happy when “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” is warmly welcomed by many local parents, children and receives great support from the local government wherever it arrives. This is testament to the program’s practical and positive values for the society and provides motivation for us to pursue our ambition of becoming “Lifetime Partner” to millions of families across Vietnam.”

Le Tuyet Mai, deputy director of the fund (NFVC), said: “We are glad to have received very positive feedback from the community for the 'Sinh Con, Sinh Cha' programme. I am confident that the collaboration between NFVC and Generali Vietnam, both of which are strongly committed to the protection and development of Vietnamese children, will help extend the reach of the programme far and wide to create positive and sustainable impacts for the society.”

From now until the end of the year, at least 2,000 parents and children from newborns to six years, and about 400 kindergarten teachers and officers from cities and provinces across Vietnam are expected to benefit from the “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” local workshops. The progamme’s sitcom series has been successfully published on Generali Vietnam’s official Youtube channel garnering millions of views, interactions, and positive comments.

The Human Safety Net’s families program supports parents in the first six years of their children’s life to lay the strongest possible foundations for their future, contributing to early childhood development (ECD) in disadvantaged communities around the world.
