(Translation) As working from home continues to be the norm, fathers are spending more time at home, giving them opportunities to be more involved on the home front.
In a [Focus on the Family Singapore] survey, about half of fathers surveyed felt closer to their children, while 36% felt closer to their wife. Almost half expressed that they were more involved in home-related activities during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).
86% of survey respondents enjoy fatherhood, and feel that as a result of this season of being home, they now have a deeper appreciation for the joys and challenges of family life.
