Keeping Singapore Clean


Nurturing kindness and cleanliness at home

Aug 17, 2019

Parents are primary influencers and role models for their children, and they play a vital role to reinforce behaviours at home and in the public. To encourage and support parents to inculcate in their children the values of cleaning up after themselves, the Public Hygiene Council (PHC), in collaboration with Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) launched the “Nurturing Kindness & Cleanliness at Home” parenting talks in March 2019.

The talks were conducted by professional trainers who provided practical tools to guide parents on how to teach their children to keep the public spaces clean and develop the social etiquette of picking up after themselves. The trainers also inspire parents with their own experiences and stories.

From March to August 2019, over 30 talks have been conducted for over 1,100 parents. The majority of parents gave high ratings for the talks and indicated that they were very likely to use the educational materials provided.
