PARENTS OF RADICALISED WOMAN MUST BE PUNISHED FOR KEEPING QUIET & DESTROYING EVIDENCE

I'm shocked that an infant care teacher was radicalised but more appalled that her parents did not inform the authorities about her! They are religious teachers and yet didn't bother to report her? The news said they also desotryed evidence to minimise her acts! Shouldn't they be punished too? What if she did something serious? What if she influenced or harmed other people? Will they be answerable? Why didn't they seek professional help for her? She could have been guided away from the path of radicalism if they bothered to speak up. Isn't it selfish to keep quiet about something so serious?

PARENTS OF SEC 2 ACS BOY SUED SCHOOL FOR CONFISCATING HIS IPHONE

Parents of a Sec 2 student have sued his school, ACS (Barker Rd) for confiscating his handphone. The boy was using his iPhone 7 in class when it was confiscated by the teacher. According to the school's rules, anybody caught using handphones in class will have their devices confiscated for 3 months. The boy himself indicated that he was aware of the rule. However, his parents were relentless as they sent letters demanding the school to return their son's phone immediately. They threatened to take this to the court if nothing is done. They finally decided to take the case to court when they did not receive a reply from the school.

SELFISH PARENTS MAKE SENDING KIDS TO CHILD CARE A CHALLENGE

But this does not excuse you to park indiscriminately while sending your kids to the centres. It may be for just a while, but the short time you were away, you might be blocking access to other vehicles who are trying to get out of the carpark, thus delaying someone who is heading out and beginning their day. And this also does not excuse parents who spend so much time at the sending off area for their kids, and stand around while waiting for your kid to have their temperature taken. You might not be in any hurry to leave, but spare a thought for the next parent in line who is desperately trying to drop off their kid and heading off to work early. You are just taking up too much of their time. I don't know why people are now more selfish, always thinking about themselves. Please spare a thought for others

PARENTS PICKING UP PAMPERED NSF CAUSE SEVERE JAM @ WHITE SANDS

Can parents please stop pampering their boys whom are serving their NS? Let them be independent! Why must parents every Friday night go drive and park around White Sands area causing massive jams there just to pick their own son? Are these boys paralysed? Or need to be spoon fed? Continue being like this our boys will go nowhere! I hope MINDEF takes actions against this too, every Friday evening we have to either call in enforcement wardens to be there or to just get stuck for at least 15 minutes to get out of that place! There got no MRT and bus for them to take is it? No taxi or uber and grab for them is it?

AGGRESSIVE MARKETING OF PREMIUM FORMULA MILK MAIN CAUSE OF HIGH MILK POWDER PRICES

The recent uproar over the high price of the infant milk powder and the government's decision to step up inquiries on why this is so have revealed that the the aggressive marketing of so-called 'premium' formulas is the reason that price is being driven on a steep upwards trajectory. Seems like the formula milk manufacturers have engaged in aggressive marketing tactics such as sponsorship and payments to private hospitals to distribute their products, as well as build an image of premium milk to ensure consumer loyalty. These reasons are given for milk powder prices in Singapore to be among the highest in the world. This is simply outrageous. Parents are paying more just to pay for the company's own marketing to actually get them to buy the products! And the premium image? Nothing more than just portraying an image that the formula are better than normal formula milk, despite no scientific evidence to back up the claims.

PARENTS IGNORANT OF CHILDCARE COMMUNICATION, CLAIMED WAS NOT TOLD

I saw one such parent today. The kids at the centre were supposed to bring an empty clean bottle for some art lessons. This was communicated to parents via logbook, which parents had to read and sign everyday, and via a piece of notice given to them, placed in the child's school bag. You cannot miss it, unless you never take out stuff from the bag, which is impossible. This communication happened more than two weeks before the child was supposed to bring the bottle. And the parents were reminded again via a second logbook communication just the day before. Impossible for you to miss it. Yet, when the day came, this parent insisted that her child did not know about this, and she was not informed. How could that be! Everyone who heard her knew she was lying, that she didn't even bother to read her child logbook.

NUS GIRL’S HEARTBREAKING STORY OF HER FATHER IS A TEAR JERKER

This is the most common phrase used by the kindergarten children to ridicule me. Who is my father? Where is he? These questions didn’t bother me at all then. I just hate him down to the rotten core because he is responsible for all my misery. Fast forward to the age of 5, my mum brought me into a stranger’s home. An old sweaty, smelly and dark skin uncle stood right in front of me.

EXPENSIVE SINGAPORE A BURDEN TO HER CITIZENS?

Last time, our grandparents and parents do all sorts of jobs on top of their day-to-day job to survive, and yet are able to raise so many kids, and still live happily as a family. Now, you see many people working long hours on their one and only job, at the expense of family time, and complain so much that prices are just too expensive to start raising kids. Those whose jobs are not that high paying, will struggle to save enough money to even start a family. Some people work too long hours, in the end, marriage affected and divorce occurs.
