Family Wellbeing

HKFWS is committed to enhancing family wellbeing. The Society helps families to understand the status of their family wellbeing by conducting socially relevant and culturally appropriate research such as the Hong Kong Family Wellbeing Index. Based on their own research, we have created an online self-assessment tool covering six family domains that enable anyone to benchmark their own family wellbeing to further understand their own family situation. We also provide professional advice to enhance the family wellbeing of the general public.

Family Solidarity

My family has set up a “WhatsApp” group and we get used to sharing information and maintaining communication in this platform. However, we seldom use it to share our personal matters. How can we improve our relationship?

“WhatsApp” groups are a platform to share information and photos.  However, it is not suitable to discuss personal and confidential matters. If family members come across these problems, they need your emotional support instead of having people share and discuss them in a group chat. Emotional support with a personal touch is essential to maintaining close and fruitful family relationships. Remember, “WhatsApp” groups cannot replace face-to-face communication.
