The family comprises of Francis TAY 40 his wife Elsie 38 and their two boys Luke 12 and Lewis 1 month old. Francis runs his own family business with his only younger sibling Frannie TAY a single. They deal mainly with the import of timber from Indonesia. Francis is required to be out of his home country most of the time. Elsie is a homemaker. She used to work as a childcare teacher but decided to quit after she found out that she was pregnant with Lewis. Her poor relationship with her new workplace supervisor also expedited her decision to quit her job. The family resides in a average apartment flat. Francis was overseas when Elsie’s water bag burst and she had to go through an emergency C-section. Lewis was born premature weighing a mere 2 kg. Francis was only able to join the family after 2 weeks due to the travel restrictions of Covid-19. Hence the first 2 weeks of the birth of Lewis was a rather stressful period for Elsie. Fortunately Elsie’s good friend Nellie was a good source of support to her during this period. Francis and Elsie are secondary school sweethearts. They got married when Francis was 28 and Elsie was 26 years of age. Initially they enjoyed a very good relationship. Francis adored Luke and made special efforts to stay in Singapore during his first year. Elsie was very happy. However this did not last for long. He once again started to travel often. Elsie started feeling lonely. She felt that Francis valued money more than his family. Hence Elsie was overjoyed when she found out that she was pregnant with Lewis after trying to conceive again for many years. She felt this would force Francis to spend more time with her family as was the case with Luke. She only mentioned about her pregnancy to Francis when she was 3 months pregnant. Francis was not very keen to keep the baby. He suggested that she goes for an abortion as he felt that he may have some challenges raising the new-born due to his failing business. However Francis grudgingly agreed to keep the child after Elsie threatened to kill herself. Elsie’s parents have both passed on. Francis’ both parents aged 70 are still around. However they do not share a close relationship with him or his family. They feel that Francis’ poor business outcomes may be a result of his poor decision making. Also they do not see Elsie on par with their family either in education or social status. They tend to support his sister Frannie more. They only visit their grandchildren occasionally. Luke is currently studying in a primary school and he will be sitting for a very important examination at the end of this year. He used to be close with Elsie till she became pregnant and started exhibiting negative mood swings. Luke is currently only close to the family’s domestic helper Marisa and his teacher-in-charge Ms LIU. Ms LIU dropped by your family service centre with Elsie last week. They shared their concerns regarding Luke. Ms LIU is concerned that he appears to be losing interest in his studies and has not been submitting his homework on time. Elsie feels that he is very rude to her lately and has been unkind to Lewis. He had also told Marisa that he was worried about his important exam. Elsie also added that she has been very upset that she has to manage her premature baby single-handedly as her husband has been unsupportive. He has only been concerned about the outstanding medical bills and his failing business due to the Covid-19 situation. You have been assigned as the social worker for this family.
