HELICOPTER PARENTING LEADS TO SOFTIE KIDS

I refer to the Straits Times article "More Schools Shoot Down Helicopter Parenting". For those who do not know what helicopter parenting is, it is a term describing parents who hover unnecessarily over their children at the expense of nurturing their child's independence.

More schools are now doing this, turning parents away during school hours when they come because their child forgot something. I feel this is a move in the right direction. I don't know when this happened, but we are becoming a nation of softies. Our kids have loss that sense of responsibility, because they know their parents will pick up the slack, or even their maids will come to their rescue of they forgot something, or don't know how to do things.

Parents nowadays are so overprotective of their own kids, they are actually driving them from being independent. How long can the kids depend on their parents and their maids? This ban against helicopter parenting should have happened a long time ago, and all schools should have this, not just a token few.

PAP GOVT WASTING TIME ON 38 OXLEY WHEN THEY SHOULD PRESERVE SUNGEI ROAD MARKET

Because the difference between the oxley house and sungei road is that doing away with sungei road will displace and affect the livelihood of many old singaoreans. While activist try to explore options for sungei road the government proposes options for the Oxley house, it is troubling to see the government put so much effort in preserving something singaporeans don't care about and ignoring the pleas of singaporeans trying to save sungei road.

AFTER ATTACKS BY LEE SIBLINGS, A PAP SPLIT IS ON THE CARDS

It is well-know that PAP has a rule that if they are defamed, they need to sue or leave the cabinet. But PM Lee is not suing, instead, he is waging his whole party in a show hand bet by having a parliament session to debate allegation of abuse of power by his brother. Understandably, it would be difficult to sue a family member, but PM Lee can't stop those who think that a party and a country is bigger than his family. And since, his brother has started the attacks on PM Lee and essentially his cabinet ministers, these allegations must be dealt with swiftly and decisively.
