CSJ: WE SHOULD NOT LABEL CHILDREN LIKE AMOS AS “NIGHTMARES”

PAP Minister, Ms Grace Fu, is reported to have said: “It’s not just any YouTube video. It crosses the red line on religion. But I think that Amos Yee is not doing himself or his family any favors. How do you deal with a 16-year-old that is not able to comply with rules of society? It’s kind of a parent’s nightmare.”

AMOS YEE SHOULD FILE POLICE REPORT AGAINST HIS BASTARD FATHER

Amos Yee posted on his blog to tell the world that he had suffered under his abusive father and yet his other family members did not do anything to stop the beatings by his father. Perhaps, for his own good, he should simply file a police report against his own father for assault and apply a personal protection order from the Family Court against his own father. By doing so, Amos Yee will get more international media attention to help his case and imply to the judges that his actions were results of his family conditions.

Open Letter to the “We Are Against Pink Dot in Singapore” Facebook group

We are writing in the spirit of concerned parents (about 80 of us) who are part of the “We are against Pink Dot in Singapore” group. We joined the group because we, for either religious beliefs or our own family values, do not support the Pink Dot event. Nothing more. Nothing less. It has been about 1-2 week since we joined and we are beginning to wonder if we have put ourselves in the right mission. Don’t get us wrong, we still do not support Pink Dot, but we do not wish to be spewing hate from our mouths like some of the members of this group do.

MOE FORCED ME TO SEND MY DAUGHTER FOR 16 HRS OF TUITION EVERY WEEK

My daughter is in Primary 6 this year. She already has 4 tutors for English, Math, Science and Chinese. She has 2 lessons with them each week, which takes up a lot of her time, and a lot of our family time together. Every weekday evening, she has to sit in for tuition classes after dinner, so by the time she finishes tuition, it’s already 9pm. She still has to do her homework for the next day, so by the time we get her to bed, it’s around 10 plus or 11 o’clock. And to think she has to be in school by 7.30am! I’m writing in because I’m not happy that our education system has forced our children into this kind of tuition culture.
