Abstract: Income inequality in Singapore is widening and Singapore’s Gini Index was actually the second highest among developed countries. Using a comparative framework, this study takes a different approach in studying inequality by using the family as site. The study aims to show how class matters in shaping the private sphere of familial relationships, placing an emphasis on the parent-child relationship. Drawing on in-depth interview data with mothers of the poor and middle class, I analyse and explain similarities and differences across different classes and argue that income matters in the construction of familial lives as it shapes life chances.
