NO DISCIPLINE KIDS PLAYED SOCCER, ATE & DIRTIED PUBLIC BUS

Some kids were making a lot of noises shouting and playing on bus 153 and throwing a ball around. The ball even went from all the way back to the front of the bus. One of them fell when crawling over a seat and broke his front tooth and started crying. They were also eating what seems like an ice-cream and playing with a plastic cup of water that spilled.

YOUNG BRAT CALLS CAROUSELL SELLER A BITCH FOR NOT GOING TO HIS HOUSE TO DEAL

I'm writing in to share my unpleasant experience with this ill mannered brat on Carousell whom wanted to get only 2 pairs of Mini Fling Joystick from me. FYI, I live in AMK and I work around town area yet he expected me to travel all the way to Jurong to deal with him for just $13.80 when I clearly stated in my post that meetup is only to my convenience, otherwise can opt for mailing as mentioned to him.

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.
