HKFWS reaches youngsters in their campuses. With the aim of "strengthening families", we provide professional counselling service to nurture youngsters’ holistic development. Stepping into the Generation Z, youngsters indulge in internet, which creates family conflicts and parenting problems. Our social workers help youngsters facilitate their communications with parents and relieve family tension to promote mutual respect and understanding among family members.

Online Learning

My children take long hours of online classes. They told me they felt exhausted and their eyes were tired. Are there any tips for eye protection and relaxation?

Parents can remind children to take a break for at least 20 to30 seconds every 20 to 30 minutes when using the digital devices. Keeping a proper distance from electronic tools. The distance between eyes and the tools should be at least 50 cm, 40 cm and 30 cm away from desktop computers, tablets and smartphones respectively. Taking one hour of physical exercise including outdoor activities, aerobic or stretching, is recommended.
