Fostering Neighbourliness

I asked my friend to attend an event with me. He was not able to do so, as he has to look after his children, as his wife is not at home.

I suggested to him to consider the following arrangement in the future:

1. Make friends with your neighbours
2. Leave your children with them, if the parents have to go out for an event
3. Volunteer to take care of their children, when they face a similar situation
4. This will encourage neighbourliness and give more freedom to the parents.

I understand that this practice was quite popular in other countries. We have to develop a similar habit in Singapore.
