    But of course they won't stop a direct hit from a real bullet la...but still, can protect against air rifle ricochet rounds.

    Erm, they do not get confinement and things like that, but they do get sacked or banned temporarilly or sometimes, they have to forfeit their CCA points.....

    And, all these lies in my hand. I get to decide how they kena tekan, but I oso bear the responsibility should anything happen in there..... But, its not a very nice experience to hold on to the range n aurmory keys over that couple of years... Alot of responsibilities....

    That's good. Keep up the good work. Encourage him. Don't deter him. Don't nag. But put your words in a nice way. He'll understand.


    I got band1's through out my primary school. Except for maths. I had band 2. But life was tough then. Got caned. Hit by teacher for not getting band 1. Can't tell parents. They do the same thing to you, if you didn't study hard. At the end got a band 1 for maths. Somethings that i will never do to my own child.

    Yes, but u see, if we want to put on the sighter thingy( "spectacles", forgot exactly what it's called), then we cannot put on these safety glasses at the same time. I'm not too sure abt SSA's regulations, but i think, it is not allowed....

    I wonder why do parents scold children and get so worried over them.....

    Over time, they will juz grow out of it.... And given how competitive society nowadays is, they will sooner or later realise how important is it to do well and they will juz work hard on their own.... No point everyday nag n nag and they rebel n rebel.... Harms both parties....


    My parents used to nag, but not anymore.... I told them explicitly to stop nagging, I know what i'm doing. I've got my plans planned out.

    U know, parents tend to over worry abt their children and unknowingly impose all their ideas on their kids. So things like parents think that kid should go take business course, but kid knows what he wants and unfortunately, it isn't business.... Maybe design or engineering....

    I used to be at the extremes. Band 1 for both maths n science, band 3 for both languages.... Dun ask me why, I dunno..... Just can't do language back then, but on the contrary, I excel in maths n science.... Both like near full marks range that kind...

    But anyway, now I realised the importance of language, I studied hard. Using music to study both my language. And now, i have no problems with both languages. Both got A1 during O levels.

    Now when mum nags, i just ignore her. Perfected the 1 ear in 1 ear out technique. You can't stop them. Just maybe reduce the naggings by producing results.

    My maths suck, up till now. My teachers said i'm more to language, not sciences person.

    I will never cane or even hit my child. If he is at wrong. I will tell him/her why it's wrong. If his/her grades aren't good. I'll encourage not deter. Do something about it to make the grades improve. Find out the problem. Maybe the child doesn't understand. Devise methods to make it easy to understand. Parents must take the effort too. Caning, hitting will not improve results. It brings pain to the child.

    Haha, I will juz show him/her case studies of people who are a total failure in life and let him/her realise from himself/herself

    That's the most effective way man! And that's oso how I found my direction in life. But finding the direction too early post a problem too.... U will find that sec sch subjects are all useless..... That's how i felt man. Total torture. But once I got into poly, woots! Doing very well.....
