    'WHAT she said did come across as insensitive. The language was stronger than what most people could take.

    But she wrote in a private blog and I feel that her privacy has been violated. After all, they were the rantings of an 18-year-old among friends.

    I think if you cut through the insensitivity of the language, her basic point is reasonable, that is, that a well-educated university graduate who works for a multinational company should not be bemoaning about the Government and get on with the challenges in life.

    Nonetheless, I have counselled her to learn from it. Some people cannot take the brutal truth and that sort of language, so she ought to learn from it.

    In our current desire to encourage more debate, especially through the Internet, our comments must be tempered with sensitivity.

    I will not gag her, since she's 18 and should be able to stand by what she says.

    The new media of the Internet is such that if you don't like what she has said, you have the right of rebuttal.

    Hopefully, after the discussion, everyone will be the richer for it. As a parent, I may not have inculcated the appropriate level of sensitivity, but she has learnt a lesson, and it's good that she has learnt it at such an early stage in life.'

    Do you even wonder whether Pampers came first or the term pampered came first?

    I mean.. If the kids are allowed to wear Pampers for too long it means that they are definitely very spoilt! Hence the term!

    If I was the father, I would've made the kid kneel and beg the driver for forgiveness.

    in the good old days, this would have qualified for a public caning and expulsion for tarnishing the school's name.

    spare the rod and spoil the child.

    It's part of growing up. He's going to learn it the hard way.

    I was more 冲动 than him when I was his age, but I never thought of hitting people.

    It's got absolutely zilch to do with acting tough. If a driver did that to me, I'd be ticked off too, however irrationally. Humans are inherently impulsive.

    The "boy" should be counsel first , and, if he has any history of violence, public caning should apply (as an example and lesson), follow by expellsion from school.

    Nowadays, many youngster are spoilt, sparing the rod is a very bad idea.

    You might be surprised to find out that many who are punished, however severely, have a tendency to do it again, and again, and again. The human psyche goes a little too deep to treat with reactionary punishment. Counseling these days is worth jack ****. The motivated counselors have no idea how to do it properly, and the ones who are trained in the subject have no motivation.

    Counselled? Oh plz, if u guys keep thinking on 'counselling, counselling' no use one.

    The precise reason why there are more and more punks, top schools or not, is due to the fact that kiddos are getting smarter, they know that if its their first offence, they would be 'counselled' (which is in fact, to them, a "1-ear-in, 1-ear-out" session) instead of facing outright punishment like the old days.

    Ask so many of u here, educated under the old system where punishment is advocated over counselling, after u did something stupid and earned a good caning, from school or from parents even if u're truly sorry, cry until ur snort and tears all over ur face, would u hesitate to do the same thing again when u know that u'll earn another round of caning, heavier one, if u do the same thing again?

    But still, kudos to the driver for not retaliating. For if he did, dat damned punk would have twisted the story and end up they will get 2 groups: 1 group of witnesses on the bus that witnessed the punching and who threw the first punch and another group of non-witnesses that only seek to protect themselves, their image and reputation.

    This so-called 'innovative, creative, new-styled' education system that we're seeing now, bleah.... Producing a smarter generation AND a generation that plays punk when other ppl's heads are turned and formulating their own brand of twisted logic when they are caught red-handed.

    for the "hard-core" pai-kia ones, maybe. but for the pampered/spoilt ones who have never been caned before in their lives, i think it will be a very effective lesson and deterrent against future misdeeds. Even the most hardened criminals dread the caning by rotan in prison.

    Counseling these days is worth jack ****. The motivated counselors have no idea how to do it properly, and the ones who are trained in the subject have no motivation.
    teaching of core values/etiquette/morals begins at home, and continues in school. IMHO this must be addressed first, then there will be less need for counsellers to "fix" spoilt kids when they grow up.
