i'd say make him an example to all
make him stand in the fron of the bus and greet everyone that boards the bus
teach him some manners and respect
shame him into submission.
Oh yes, I'm toking abt the traditional kowtow, the one where u knock ur head on the ground one.
Mmm beating up anybody is wrong so the boy is wrong no doubt but has the driver anything to do with it or contribute partially to his bashing. I have encountered bus captain that bully students and sometimes give remarks that are uncalled for.
If this kid grows up and become an elite lawyer, what will happen??
The last few teachers who did anything funny got big trouble from PARENTS calling for MOE to sack them lor.
And when I say funny I 'm not talking about molest-funny, I'm talking about simple stuff like playful whacking on head with books, etc.
Nowadays the kids very precious leh.
There are quite a number of people from your "elite" schools here who are pretty ok what, me aside. I think it's just very exasperating for them to always get painted over by the same brush because there's this bad egg that got big hoo ha in news because he's from that school.
I feel sorry for the father, but in a way he is responsible too if the kid doesn't know manners. The way, he took apologized on his spoilt son's behalf, and the way the kid's school is defending/justifying his deed, i am sure there is no stopping the kid. One has to be mroe careful to prevent Cho Seung-Huis developing in this country!
