Singapore, 11 April 2023 – Singapore’s largest one-stop virtual parenting event, the Singapore Parenting Festival, will return from 24 April to 5 May 2023! Organised by Mediacorp and theAsianparent, the Festival is back with more insightful parenting resources, exciting games and contests, and informative webinars covering a range of parenting topics. There will be particular emphasis this year on improving children’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, critical areas given the challenges of raising children today.
Into its third edition, the Singapore Parenting Festival has been highly popular with parents, parents-to be and couples planning to start a family. Last year’s Festival saw more than one million parents (with children aged below 15 years old) reached through campaign publicity over Mediacorp’s transmedia network, as well as over 10,600 webinar registrations, more than double the inaugural edition in 2021.
