    Yes. They want to be known. So let it be!

    This brings back my point in the clearing food trays in eating places.

    Those families with kids, just eat and go off, leaving a big mess on table. Shouldn't the parents set the example to clear and ask the kids to do likewise if they r old enough?

    What kind of message is the parents telling the kids? "Leave this dirty job to the low class people to do"?

    Children were told to return tray but parents do otherwise.

    Sigh... 10 years of primary and secondary education wasted.

    Ah Meng realises this and he starts to tell school to do it. It is hope that now the children can educate the parents instead. Shame the parents!

    Everything starts from the home.

    If wan the kids to have good values, the parents need to show good values.

    Have seen many bad parents doing:
    1. Jay walk with dragging the kid on the road
    2. Shouting vulgarities at other ppl
    3. Road rage behaviour
    4. Tell kids to pee in public

    And the list goes on and on

    It is the upbringing of the kids.
    Parents are "Role" model.

    So the solution is sending the parents back to school?

    It's a mental attitude...way more complex than just school. Dignity the way you carry yourself. Values. The transmission of such values seems to be easily lost nowadays with our high speed wifi connected society. Civilization.

    It will take a few generations to change the mindset. But it must start somewhere .

    In school the teachers would say, "The child needs counselling." but think often it is the parents who need it most and maybe sometimes the teacher.

    I agree it starts from the home but moreover it begins within the spirit of a person. If your spirit is sloppy the disposition of that person will be sloppy too.

    Nowadays, you see parents bringing their kids along to demonstrate to protest the social policy they are not happy with. What will become of the kids when they grow up. In Middle East, the kids become violence and demonstration becomes their part of life.

    They learn to use their constitutional rights of voicing out disagreement. And in case they grow up and venture into politics they will hopefully remember to respect this, even if they disagree with the protesters.

    Agreed. I am not against adults doing it. But what does a primary or secondary kid know about constitutional right? They do not even have the right to vote. Are the parents not sending the wrong signal that that is the way to voice their rights?

    That is what happening in HK. One moment he said that he is a Chinese than he changed his mind.

    Secondary students are able to understand the basics and joining any demonstration is applied education. For younger ones it's just a nice big party. Nothing wrong with that. What's wrong in your eyes with learning about how to voice out one's opinion and rights? Any peaceful avenue is a valid avenue, in my eyes.

    But looking at the idiocy of university students in Hong Kong during the riots?

    LoL are you sure that secondary school kids are fully aware of what they're getting into, especially so since most of them are more pampered these days with nary their own mind?
