An Insight of My Relationship with the Children from 2016 Prudential Relationship Index

I am blessed and thankful to be a mother of 2 lovely girls, they are my source of satisfaction and happiness in my life. Both hubby and I have always try to build a strong relationship amongst us and the kids by giving them the best we can. However, is this enough?
Last week, I came across the 2016 Prudential Relationship Index while browsing through the Internet. I decided to download the FREE 2016 Prudential Relationship Index to know further. Prudential has launched the inaugural 2016 Prudential Relationship Index (PRI) to understand the state of personal relationships in Malaysia and throughout Asia. These include relationships with partners, children, parents, friends and relatives. A score of 100 on the PRI means that a person’s primary relationship delivers 100% of what they want from that relationship. Malaysia ranks 5th equal out of 10 countries in Asia in the 2016 Prudential Relationship Index with a score of 71/100, not too bad huh.
It is a good read as I got to know that 69% of the adults surveyed in Malaysia are parents, and on average, each parent has two children, just like me.
The overall relationship score that Malaysian parents have with their children is 52/100, higher than the average scores for the region (48/100) which is good. Malays have relatively strong relationships with their children (54/100), as compared with Malaysian Chinese (49/100).

Malaysian parents want to enjoy companionship with their children; they most value doing things together with their children (65%). As the children grow up, hubby and I always try to arrange more time to company the kids. However, as a working dad and a working mom, we do not have much time to bond together. We have tried to arrange family vacation whenever possible so that we could spend time together. We had some wonderful moment at Taiwan, Japan, Bangkok, Penang, Langkawi, and other places throughout the years. We like to share the lovely memory and we wish to create more precious time together.
