Protecting children against physical and psychological abuse was the main topic of a recent workshop that attracted more than 500 parents, children and teachers in Ngoc Trao District, Thanh Hoa city.

The event, entitled "Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” (Born Children, Born Parents), is part of the Human Safety Net, a community educational programme which is jointly implemented by the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC) and Generali Vietnam.

At the workshop, participants also discussed how to handle temper tantrums, as well as early education for children about money. Discussed topics were within the program’s three main content pillars of intelligence, behavior and health of children aged 0 – 6 years.

Tina Nguyen, Generali Vietnam CEO, said: “In Thanh Hoa Province , the “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” workshop series continued to discuss important, relevant and practical parenting topics which many parents are still lacking knowledge of or may not pay due attention to. The enthusiastic responses from hundreds of families in Thanh Hoa Province greatly motivate the team from Generali Vietnam and NFVC to put in greater effort to scale up the programme to many more localities.”

At the event, the organising board also handed over 250 gift sets to all participating children, 250 programme booklets to parents and caregivers, as well as 30 special in-cash and in-kind gift sets to 30 local families in extreme hardship.

To date, the “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” programme has benefited about 5,500 parents, children, kindergarten teachers and staff via local workshops in provinces and cities across the country.

It has also garnered millions of views, interactions and positive comments via its sitcom series published on Generali Vietnam’s official YouTube channel, and wide-ranging parenting content on its Facebook fanpage and “Sinh Con, Sinh Cha” parenting community group.— VNS
