Single mother Wong Li Lin

According to former Mediacorp actress Wong Li Lin, 44, “Divorce has profoundly and emphatically changed me.”

Wong divorced her former husband, Allan Wu, 4 years ago. Since then, Wong has put the needs of her children before her own. She needs to juggle her parental duties with a full-time job. For her, the biggest challenges lie in finding time, energy and money.

Parenting style

As a parent, she is strict when there is a need to but relaxed at the opportune time. Wong sets rules on her children’s use of gadgets and social media activities.

Wong tends to reason with her children and not use corporal punishment on them. She tries to get her children to understand their actions (and the consequences of their actions) through dialogue and reasoning.

Advice for single parents in Singapore

Wong’s advice to single parents in Singapore is to provide stability for themselves and their children.

In her words: “Speak to people who are good with money to help you, if need be. For everything else, just one foot in front of the other. Find the beauty and gifts in your life, then the world would seem a lot less frightening.”
