A happy Singaporean family will make a happy society in Singapore. Since families are the building blocks of societies, it is important that families cultivate positive environments. An individual that grew up in a happy family environment is most likely to become a happy well-rounded adult. On the other hand, an individual that grew up in a broken dysfunctional family is also most likely to become troubled and broken adults. This is why building a happy family is essential. Aside from this, a happy environment provides a feeling of security for all members of the family.
