Support for Parents
HKFYG Parent Support Network
Being a parent is a challenge wherever you live and Hong Kong parenting presents special rewards and problems. In support of all parents, the HKFYG Parent Support Network (PSN) now offers both online and offline platforms for sharing experience and building parenting skills.

Online, the PSN website information including videos, articles, a wide range of tips on parenting and family life, and a live chat room where parents can share with our professionals any hiccups they have.

The PSN mutual help groups are also an integral part of learning how to deal with stressful parent-child situations. They build confidence and skills by offering a forum for exchange and positive parenting suggestions. Mediation and referral are available too, while other offline services include training and workshops at the 21 HKFYG Youth SPOTs around the city.
