A heartwarming video about what really matters in family life is giving us the feels.
Make Family Time More Fulfilling by HSBC bank starts by reminding us that Singaporeans work the longest hours in the world.
Then, it asks three sets of parents: If you didn’t have to work tomorrow, what would you do?
Next, the parents watch videos of their kids being asked the same question.
They fight back tears as their kids say things like: “My dad, whenever I talk to him, he’s very concentrated on his phone”, or “He’s always on the computer. His work is a lot.”
What we learnt from their candid responses: Kids want to spend their free time with their parents. It’s that simple.
While this video was first launched in November last year, we feel it’s a timely reminder at the start of 2019.
Now, please excuse us while we hug our kids.
We all work hard in Singapore. But if you had a day off, what would you do? We asked fellow Singaporeans and this is what they had to say.
