I believe there are quite a number of young working parents who place their pre-school toddlers under the care of their grandparents. There working parents would drop off their children (and maid) at their parents’ house early in the morning before heading to work. In the evening, they would pick up their children from their parents’ home after work.
Perhaps HDB could consider allowing free parking at HDB carparks on a weekday, between 6pm to 8pm. This is an extension to Dr Tan’s idea of promoting quality family time. These young parents would then be encouraged to have dinner with their own parents on a weekday, rather than just “pick-and-go”. It also encourages young adults who are living on their own to visit their parents more often. With a greying population, minor changes to policies as such could help to ensure that our elderly citizens are better looked after.
