The Sinh Con, Sinh Cha workshop in Nghe An facilitated discussions on three practical and useful parenting topics: Handling children’s minor illnesses and tips for boosting their immune system, setting a good example for children, and giving them regular encouragement and motivation.
Discussed topics focused on the programme’s three main content pillars of the intelligence, behaviour, and health of children from newborns to six years old. Merited artist Xuan Bac – the NFVC’s goodwill ambassador – volunteered as the workshop’s facilitator.
About 100 of Generali Vietnam’s staff and agent volunteers, as well as staff members from the NFVC, Nghe An Department of Labour, Invalids, and Social Affairs, and Nghe An Fund for Children, joined hands with Hoa Sen kindergarten to support the workshop’s organisation.

At the event, Generali Vietnam handed 320 gift sets to all participating children, 320 programme booklets to their parents and caregivers, and 30 special in-cash and in-kind gift sets to 30 local families who face extreme hardship.
Generali Vietnam's CEO Tina Nguyen said, “I am very pleased to see such topics discussed at the Sinh Con, Sinh Cha workshop in Nghe An, which continued to be very well received by the participating parents, kindergarten staff, and teachers.”
“We are now releasing the new season of the programme’s parenting sitcom series featuring lots of useful and practical parenting content to further extend the programme’s educational impact, allowing it to reach many more families with young children across Vietnam,” she added.
Nguyen Thi Hien, deputy director of the NFVC remarked, “The enormous interest and enthusiastic participation of local parents at the workshop reaffirms a strong demand for parenting knowledge and skills among parents and child caregivers.
“We hope that both the NFVC and Generali Vietnam will continue to deepen our longstanding and fruitful partnership to bring this programme to many more provinces and cities, thereby proactively contributing to the protection, nurturing, and education of Vietnamese children,” said Hien.
